This is the only one I have been to lately :unsure:

Pirated DVD’s and CD’s in Quiapo

 

Plaza Miranda is a square or a public plaza located in front of the Quiapo Church. It is also a popular site of political rallies in the past.

Mate, I don't like your chances of finding any......I think you should change your travel plans and head over to Japan.....That would be like heaven for any collecter and a place I would love to have a pocket full of cash and run amok. :lol:

I'm not too good with names in Tokyo Japan but I know koogles can help you alot.

From what i recall, you should head to an area called Shinjuku which is like an entire suburb of cd shops, you could find pretty much anything if you the time to look. Recently an old trading buddy of mine returned with over 400 cds which I think included the elusive Japanese pressing of Keel - The Right To Rock among many other top end rarities.

Nightrain,

 

You know what, there's this one store there near Quiapo that also sells hard-to-find originals but mostly Metal (no AOR, or hard rock). It was more than 6 years ago that I've been there and I'm not sure if its still open. I'm not sure if MUSIC ONE is still open in Mega Mall but I use to get 2nd hand CDs there that still have their obi strips.

 

It was a whole different story now, though I don't like Dave's line of "I don't like your chances of finding any..." in the Philippines, I cannot totally say that he's wrong because It was, like I said more than 6 years now.

 

There, I got my TNT, Princess Pang, Queensryche, Rock City Angels, Riot, Blue Murder, etc. all in their original pressing. Also saw there Lion, Fair Warning, alt-cover (the rose artwork) of Hanoi Rock's 1st, Andy Taylor's Thunder, Prophet, Lita Ford's Out for Blood, W.A.S.P.'s with obi's, and a slew of 80s hard rock bands with obis.

 

All hope is not lost, though. Get 2 copies of Hebigat Sounds Vol. 1 by Razorback, Wolfgang's first and Evolution's S/T and pm me :bananamac: okey?

Hailing out of Marl, Germany, this four piece post-hardcore group really hits you deep in your emotions. From the ambient music to the emotional lyrics that really strike a nerve, OUR MIRAGE offers a vast variety of elements that many of us can relate to. This young group is becoming known for the emotion that they pour into their music and their latest release Unseen Relations takes that line even deeper. The group largely focuses on the problems that our youth deal with internally, but their music doesn’t just speak to them, it is very intuitive of the problems and struggles that we all deal with on a common basis. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Nice album from these guys. Whole bunch of pretty sweet cuts on this one. This is my favourite of the album-   Some other cuts from the album-                
    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums. 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
