Biggest dissapointment for a somewhat expensive CD?


Recommended Posts

And I'm not talking about cheap one's here...not too long ago I paid about 25 euros for Stan Meissner - Dangerous Games. It was OK, but not worth it (I probably want it in my collection, but not for that price). Yes I paid a decent coin for it, but the content was the biggest dissapoinment.

Dude, that is an excellent AOR disc. I think I paid 20 euro for mine and I don't regret it one second...

This probably doesn't sound like too much money but it was by my standards, but I paid us$20 + postage for Falcon's 'Chartscraper' (after being constantly compared to Masquerade/TNT) and I thought it was a peice of shit.

Yeah, 'Dangerous Games' is a great disc for me aswell. 'Windows To Light' is also excellent'.

 

Err... to answer the question, I wouldn't fork out big bucks on a CD if I didn't know beforehand what it was like, hence no disappointments so far.

REFUGEE - Burning from the Inside Out

 

I spent a fair bit on it & it's stunningly average 80's AOR, miles behind the great 80's albums. The good thing is that I sold it long before they re-issued it, so I made a decent profit anyway....

Pretty much every indie band I've spent over $50 for has been a disappointment in some way or another. That's pretty much why I don't buy many indies anymore. I really need some good production these days.

surely you jest.................. I was fortunate to find a few of these around melbourne's finest used cd stores many moons ago...... back when the pricetag on this gem was over $200 usd..... this is imho still is one of the finest aor platters around... certainly a major improvement in leaps & bounds over its classic rated predeccesor " affairs of babylon "

Sorry mate but it does nothing for me. I even copied it before I sold it but have never played that copy once. Nice sound, good keyboards/vocals etc, no songs with any hooks whatsoever. Stuff like Aviator and Urgent leaves this for dead IMHO.

Funnily enough I was listening to this today and its all over the boards! (Geoff was listening to it as well). I wouldnt slag it quite as much as Tim.....I actually think its a pretty decent AOR album, but it does tail off badly towards the end. Needed a killer 10th track to lift it.

 

Agree that its miles off Aviator etc though :tumbsup:

Yeah, I'm about the same. Decent enough disc with a weak ending, but yeah, Aviator destroys this.

Took me awhile but I finally thought of one CD I paid more-than-average $ for that fits this topic: Helloween's CHAMELEON (1993). For the longest time this album wasn't available in the US (though it was issued here belatedly a few years back) so a year or two after its release I bought an import copy at the annual KISS Expo in New Jersey. I believe I paid somewhere in the neighborhood of $30 for it. I brought it home all excited that the lone hole in my Helloween collection was finally filled, until I actually listened to the CD. WOW, did that album frickin SUCK. Granted, the album that preceded it, PINK BUBBLES GO APE, wasn't a classic by any means either, but it sounds like pure gold when compared to that pile of poo. CHAMELEON hung around my CD rack taking up space for a couple of years until I got tired of looking at it and traded it off. Lord knows I love me some Helloween and I proudly own the rest of their catalog on CD but CHAMELEON will never be allowed in my house again.

    • This one is really good honestly, 10 songs, pretty much all their big hits. Very concise.
    • I think most people know my stance on these two. I love LA Guns and think Tracii is one of the best guitarists to come out of the hair metal scene, and while I like Stryper I have really gone off them due to Michaels compulsion to release new material every second Wednesday. I have not bought the last 2 or 3 Stryper albums, and a bunch of other stuff he is involved in because of this. Hell, didnt even pick the first Sunbomb album up til early this year and only then it was because I got it for £5 instead of the usual £13 to £15 that Frontiers CDs usually cost. That album did not impress me. Musically it was tight but Sweets vocals were pretty "meh", and sounds like they are gonna be even worse on this album. Have to agree to what has already been said, but I can barely even understand what he is singing. Now while I am fine with listening to foreign language songs, if a singers native tongue is English, I wanna be able to understand what he is singing. Fuck me, there are death metal bands out there easier to understand than this. If I didnt know the song title, I would think it was called I'm bating bulls yeah
    • That Sunbomb release was soo bad that I can't believe there's gonna be another one.
    • Computer generated Gene is now God of Thunder 
    • Sorry, but those vocals are not good at all...

    • It’s not a “you” problem; I could barely make out a word while listening to “Unbreakable” last night. A lyric video is definitely necessary when listening to MS these days. Still, even not having a clue what he was singing for the most part, this is better than pretty much everything off the first Shitbomb album. 
    • Enjoying this one, for defs their best release and they wear their influences firmly on their sleeves , mixing bands like Van Halen/Whitesnake/Treat/Pretty Maids/Magnum so whats not to like  
    • I didn't make the connection until a couple of days ago. This is the previous group of Tobias from Nestor.        
    • I miss the days when I could actually understand what Michael Sweet was singing.  Not sure if that's a "me" problem or a "Sweet" problem...
