Impulse Music - Trustworthy store?


Recommended Posts

I found a cd that I want from the Impulse Music web store. Has anybody bought from them before.

 

Is it a good store to buy from. Are they a trustworthy store?

 

 

:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

 

Oh wait a mintue, you're serious. Avoid them like the fucking plague.

Cheers all!!!

 

I think I stay away.

 

As I've said before in other threads if you call and talk to a person you're okay.

You just want to call to make sure it's actually in stock since they don't list their items as in or out of stock like NEH does.

It shouldn't be as hard as it is to get somebody to answer the damn phone. From my experience, trying to deal with them is a complete waste of time.

I made the mistake of ordering 4 CDs from these idiots at the end of November and not only have they not arrived but they won't answer emails..... so I just put in a claim with visa for non-receipt of goods.....what really sucks is they always seem to have Cds that I want at reasonable prices..... oh well live and learn.....

I bought several Sun City releases from them, 2 out of 4 came scratched (and they were supposed to be new). They were very slow in responding but eventually replaced them. I haven't bought from them since. I did have to resort to calling them (they did not reply to any of my emails).

Emailing them is a waste of time but I used to get them on the phone when they were still in Chicago but haven't ordered from them since they moved to Colorado and since their service seems to get worse and worse I probably won't order from them again. Now that I think about it it's probably been a year and a half since I did order from them. It is very sad since they used to be great to order from and for years and years of dealing with them I didn't have any issues at all.

So I ran across the Impulse site, new to me, and start checking out the stock. Plenty of stuff I've not seen in forever. So much in fact that I decide to check here to see if any post were made about them. Glad I did. Thanks for the heads up (aka horror stories).

Again if you can reach them by phone that's the way to go since then they can tell you if something is in stock or not.

The way I look at if they do not answer emails then I am sure there shipping will be about the same!! Good Luck!!

I ordered some CDs from Impulse Music back in the early 90s when they used to advertise in Metal Edge magazine all the time. I had no problems with 'em then, but that was a looooooong time ago.

Clutch, good call!

 

I don't know how many more people from this site have ordered and NOT had bad experiences with them, but regardless of whether they eventually set the order right or not, for the amount of trouble it takes to get said situation resolved, it's usually worth it to pay a few more bucks and get the CDs from somewhere else, if possible.

 

Sad too. I used to love ordering from them.

Yeah Jay, they may have actually had some of the stuff I was looking for in stock but we'll never know now. Damn shame.

Never had problems, but I was a little bit push-y! :christmas:

 

So they actually answer your emails?

 

Yep. Always! And I would say very fast. The first experience wasn't good as there was a late response & no stuff in stock but all the other tries were excellent.

 

I never had problems back in the mid 90's to early 00's but over the last 4-5 years they never ever answered emails but were always great over the phone. I haven't ordered from them since they moved to Colorado and to be honest after the last couple of dealings I probably won't. NEH is wonderful to deal with and have never had an issue and Mike responds to emails very quickly. Of course sometimes Impulse has some things that NEH doesn't have but those things usually aren't in stock.

Call them first to make sure it's in stock and then place your order over the phone. I've never had one issue doing it that way.

    • Brilliant album...oh how I pine for a follow up 
    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
