Yeah that's fuckin BS! :angry:

 

Hope nobody got shafted like we're assuming. I can't help but think that guys who have no idea about AOR/MHR just see the high prices and post a pic and say they have it for sale sometimes. Would make sense since it seems like our genre has some of the higher prices as far as music collecting goes.

I'd say the transaction will most likely go through and that Bobby will get his Friction....

 

I'd bet good money that the seller is currently suspended due to shill bidding (which we all know he didn't need to do on this item). Look at the bidding history: http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=160067782211

Now look at bidder paula*ashley's feedback....

Now look at the feedback of martina_lidiya who left feedback for paula*ashley

You see the circle? :P Shill bidding if I've ever seen it....

Questions: Wonder what ebay's policy is if the shill bidder artificially inflates the final price (which doesn't appear to be the case here). Would ebay/paypal initiate a refund to the buyer once all the shill bids had been removed?

 

Answer: And take money out of ebay's & paypal's wallets? Not bloody likely!!!!

I dont think he got nailed for shill bidding. There is absolutely no logic to nail someone and leave their shill aliases involved un-NARU-ed... Not that eBay really cares for shill bidders in my opinion, you have only to check the feedback for a proven shill-bidder like "obsidian-blade" to know that eBay doesnt give a shit.

Stormy - you have it all fucked up again - typical Russian.

 

Obsidian-Blade happens to be a guy here in Vegas who buys A LOT of shit off me. If you had any sense in your shit-for-brains you'd recognize his bidding patterns are for completely different cd's every week. And if you see that he has won a cd and is bidding on another then thats his buddy - their names are Billy and Allen and they both work in casinos here. Recordjnky will verify that as well as LVKIX who was here one day when they came over picking up their order.

 

You always think you have one up and yet you are fucking clueless. I have no need and no use for shill bidders and will continue to sell on ebay for many many years ( and you just hate that don't you Stormy). Just because you can't sell your shitty East European bands for more than $5 doesn't mean everyone has the same problem.

 

Get a life motherfucker. Ifyou have nothing better to do than watch your nemesis crush your dreams then I suggest you go back to the motherland and sing Winds of Change a few more times. Prick.

 

:2up:

 

 

:popcorn: I'll butter this for ya.

That's very sweet, but once I've seen him/them bidding on 5 consecutive acuctions of the same title. And it wasnt like they were buying them cheaper and cheaper you know... and where is the logic of coming in person to your office to pick their CDs and not buy everything they need directly from you, and not for the crazy prices they often end on eBay?

 

Anyway, I'll just ask you this: why did you suddenly stop leaving it/him/them feeback an year ago exactly at the time when this issue was brough for the first time here, eh? If they ARE real customers they do deserve the feedback, dont you think? ...actually, nevermind, this won't lead to anything positive as usual, case closed!

But it is American tradition to ignore quality

 

Fake Police , you have just insulted so many good people at this board with that last statement

yeh Geoff , I don't think there are many Russians on this board. SO your point is moot.

 

And Stormy , they may have been bidding on the same titles in a 4 or 5 week period BUT THEY DAMN SURE DID NOT WIN THEM DID THEY??? Use your head.

 

When they come over I do offer them titles that have just come in , but they like to bid on auctions as well.

 

I stopped leaving them feedback because it was pointless after they had won dozens and dozens of cd's.

 

So you make comments like obsidian-blade is a "PROVEN" shill bidder. HAHAHAHA thats the biggest pile of shit ever. Like I said , I have NO need for shill bidders and CAN PROVE that those guys are legit buyers.

 

QUESTION: If i was using shill bidders then why in the hell would I allow cd's to go for $2 to $3????

 

I know you're Russian Stormy but use your fuckin noggin once in a while.

 

There's a few idiots here who really need to get a life and stop speculating about dumbass shit that doesn't concern you. You just can't help yourselves.... I can see the emails every week...

 

oooooo look what he's selling this week....gotta be a boot.... who's bidding? who's doing this and doing that.

 

Get a fucking life. There are 3,000 people who are checking out my auctions every week.....You cannot break the machine.....so focus your negative energy on someone who gives a shit.

 

:lame:

Umm, take a deep breath man; your ego is about to explode. This thread wasn't even about you... until you decided to make it about you. I know you want the attention and publicity and things have been kinda slow here lately as far as discussion about Retrospect is concerned, but this is a bit of a reach in order to get attention...

I know there aren't many Russians on this board, but I'm not phased by that. By making that statement you're on par with Fakepolice and his generalizations about Americans. I don't think Stormspell is a bad guy at all, got nothing at all against him, and the few Russians I have known have all been good guys. I'm sure the place is full of them. Your comment wasn't directed at Russians on the board alone... I didn't think so anyway. Seemed pretty general to me.

Is he OK? When he eventually tells everybody on the message board to f**k off or shut up, maybe then he'll feel OK. He's at least halfway there. :lol:

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
