What CDs did you buy this week?

Recommended Posts

I'll probably get censored for this. I bought 11:

 

:headbanger:

Scorpions - World Wide Live

Scorpions - The Best of Scorpions 20th Century Masters

Dokken - The Very Best of

Accept - Balls To The Wall

 

These two were found at heavyharmonies.com: Thanks Dan!

Romeo's Daughter (bought on ebay)

Shania Twain - Beginnings 1989 - 1990 (I can't stop playing this one. She's coming to the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver on July 15)

 

Missing Persons - Rhyme & Reason

Missing Persons - Lost Tracks (The "Rest Of" from the vaults)

Keiko Matsui - White owl (CD + DVD). Hey, she plays wicked piano. I saw her twice in concert in Seattle AND she signed all my other CDs. 18 in total!

Many of her songs are catchy. There is no singing and a great band.

 

Animotion - Strange Behavior (rare and out-of-print, bought on ebay)

 

Norah Jones - Come Away With Me (CD + DVD).

MJ, I listened to Wanderlust again. I love the album. But, I have to know, what did you think of Perfect World. I loved the album, but what about Just Like A Pill. I don't know much about Pink, but I know this was the only song I'd heard that was good. (I did say when it came out how much I liked it.)

MJ, I listened to Wanderlust again.  I love the album.  But, I have to know, what did you think of Perfect World.  I loved the album, but what about Just Like A Pill.  I don't know much about Pink, but I know this was the only song I'd heard that was good.  (I did say when it came out how much I liked it.)

This is pretty much what I thought when I heard Perfect World doing that song~~~~~~~> :o

 

I mean.....it was OK when Pink did it.......I was just surprised someone like Kelly Hansen would do it..... It's "kinda" grown on me.......kinda.

 

 

As for the rest of the album..........I LOVE IT!!!!

 

Their version of Xenon's "Overnight Sensation" is as (almost) good as Xenon's........and that's saying ALOT coming from me, 'cuz I LOVE Xenon!!! :lol:

 

"I Believe In You" is probably my favorite........just love that one!!

Yeah, it was a surprise Kelly Hansen did it. I read an interview where he said the guy from Frontiers just picked the songs and gave the to him. One of the reasons I like the Pink song is that I can use it to get people to listen to the album by introducing it as "just a cover of a Pink song" or "do you know this song" and then maybe getting them to seriously listen to the album.

The next time I go down to Seattle, I'm going to look for Wanderlust and Perfect World. I haven't tried Virgin Megastore or HMV yet. A&B Sound don't have it in their computer. I was going to bid on a CD by Alexa but it is bidding at GBP23.00 or US$43.57!!!

 

I'm also going to write down a list of some of the bands you guys are listening to and bring them with me to Seattle. There are 3 maybe 4 used CD stores down there. One is only five blocks left of Tower records.

 

Also, I may be going to Japan during the last week of April. So, if there are any CDs that are only available in Japan let me know. There are a few used CD stores in Miyazaki City that I have been to and they have a good selection of U.S. music.

Check out the Wallingford neighborhood, west of UW (west side of I-5)... a bunch of little used stores on 45th Street. And don't pass up Dick's Drive-In! Killer burgers, cheep... :drink:

    • Every time I listen to Firehouse I ask, "Why can't all drums sound like this?" ;}
    • I love between the devil and the deep blue sea , like the debut and the follow up , like parts of the last album and absolutely hate the new one , they have gone full on blues rock it would seem which is not for me , great band live though
    • on the subject of Blessthefall , I absolutely love that new album 
    • Birds of prey is my pick from the album , like be legendary too and don't mind a few others
    • It was their first ever tour of Australia which is weird in itself. $100 is pretty steep but I guess normal as it ain't cheap to get over here. Anyway, it was a fairly basic show.
      Big backdrop curtain, and that was the only stage prop.
      All dressed in black, no wardrobe changes etc.
      Good long show overall.
      2 x 1 hour sets and the venue enabled a good view from anywhere.
      Joey took time to walk through the crowd during Superstitious which I guess is appropriate in that song (not worried about crazy fans)
      A couple of crowd singalongs which weren't too long so that was ok

      Other than that they were a fairly basic set up "stripped down" if you like
      I kinda had warped expectations having seen the old Final Countdown etc film clips with fireworks etc

      As for the setlist Walk the Earth
      The Siege
      Rock the Night
      (With snippet of ”Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC)
      Scream of Anger
      Danger on the Track
      Firebox
      Sign of the Times
      Vasastan
      Girl From Lebanon
      Open Your Heart
      War of Kings
      Heart of Stone
      Days of Rock 'n' Roll
      Superstitious

      Second Set
      Ready or Not
      Last Look at Eden
      Hole in My Pocket
      Seven Doors Hotel
      Carrie
      Turn to Dust
      Drum Solo
      Stormwind
      Prisoners in Paradise
      GTO
      Let the Good Times Rock

      Encore:
      Cherokee
      The Final Countdown Missing songs for me
      I'll Cry For You
      Just The Beginning - would have thought that this would have been the perfect song to end set 1...
      Halfway To Heaven
      Talk To Me
      On Broken Wings
      Always The Pretenders
      New Love In Town
      Bag Of Bones

      I know everyone has a different opinion, but I'm not sure the crowd as a whole really appreciated most of the newer stuff.
      They missed quite a few singles which was a bit weird given their first tour of Oz. (almost as weird a Cheap Trick not playing The Flame when I saw them)

      But overall it was a good show. I would have regretted not seeing it. Not as much as I regret missing the Dr Feelgood tour, but still regretted it I guess. 
    • While I agree with your overall premise about quality studio productions, I'm with Glen on a band like Blessthefall not being able to reproduce their sound live.  Just about everything has an artificial aspect to it on the studio recording.  I am not saying they sound bad live it just isn't going to sound like the album even if they pump in some additional sound and effects.   
    • Where you off to Geoff?
      I fly out to Thailand on the 14th
