One of my favourite bands, but completely uninterested. Already got all the albums... 

Remastered by Harry Hess? Leave 'em alone, friend... leave them alone.

I thought the same thing. Things like "limited edition color Vinyl" mean nothing to me. Sure, there was a time when I was younger and I would have been very tempted, but It's all about the music now man!

Thankfully, that would never ever have appealed to me whatsoever. Always all about the music, man. ;)

Man, judging by the amount of their albums I have in my collection ( 10+), they are one of my favorite bands (on par with Fates Warning, Katatonia, Pretty Maids, Helloween, Yngwie, PC 69, Dream Theater, Rage, Pain Of Salvation).  I care the less for the cd box but I'll grab the vinyls (already saving hard , btw, for the vinyl releases from Pretty Maids). 


Surely, it's  always  about the music( that's why I don't have many "complete" discographies in the shelves ), but as long  physical formats exist (vinyls preferably, despite the huge shipping cost nowadays) I'm all into getting them.

I haven't bought physical CD's for years.
And purchasing greatest hits, best ofs, ultimate collections, etc electronically is pretty pointless when you already have everything electronically.

Admittedly, most of my HS is still CD, but I'll get around to ripping this and the rest of my collection one day.

In 5 years this is a moot post, as for the first time since their 'comeback' vinyl sales have declined.
this coupled with the massive decline in CD sales is just reiterating that CD's are the new 'Blockbuster'

Hey mate. You love your music your way. That's what its all about. I'm with CureTheSane. I don't really need to have the physical object in my hands. I'm quite happy with digital. Far more convenient. As mentioned before however, there was a time before the digital (Internet)l revolution when I wasn't happy unless I owned the actual CD. Cassette tape recordings and  CD burns were okay, but I  had to have the disc. Thankfully I've well and truly gotten over that. As long as my files are tagged with cover art, I'm happy and so is my wallet.

I used to want the product in my hands.
See the artwork, read the lyrics (hopefully), even go through the credits and look for surprises and quirks.
No longer though. When some were released as downloads only it removed the ability to have a perfect collection. Same with the cardboard cases (for me at least). I wanted all mine in jewel cases.

But the quality of digital downloads is the same.
For that reason I still collect DVD's as quality of downloads still varies.
Netflix etc has kind of helped with that, but I often wonder if I'll always have access to everything I want streaming.

In the end my DVD collection is doomed.
In the end everyone's CD collections will be quirky keepsakes.
Soon releases will be online only.
This isn't something I am hoping for, but just the way it will happen.

I don't think cds will disappear anytime soon but they will become harder to find as I suspect eventually only the well known bands will release in cd form....who would have thought that vinyl would still be around after all these years...the majority of people on this forum, many who avidly collect cds, don't bother with vinyl and yet we still see vinyl releases...I expect that I will have to bite the bullet and start picking up releases in digital form in a few years as that will be the only way to get the music I want but it will be a sad day for me...

Bound to sound awful now ;)

Not seeing much mentioned of the packaging, slip sleeves or jewel cases, liner notes, booklets, book, photos, you know something to accompany the mega box?

Looks like all cardboard sleeves and I take it no booklet for each? Only a thin booklet for all 14 CDs?

I want this but I'm not sure if I'll get it or not.

Yeah, all the bonus material is very tempting.

    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
    • I just discovered this album this morning after Spotify recommended it to me, it was definitely awesome!
