Yeah it has it's points, if it wasn't for the nimrod of a hack who wrote it making some moronic and sweeping  statements  throughout the piece I might have enjoyed it more.

"Many CD players took only one disc so you'd be frequently be swapping them out"...huh! Well kinda beats vinyl for sitting on your backside not having to move .

"If you knew someone who had every CD in the right jewel case, that was often a tell that this person doesn’t listen to their music enthusiastically or often enough (It’s possible they were just slightly organized, but where’s the fun in that)" - or they actually gave a shit about what they were listening to and took a little care when putting them away. Where's the fun in being organised? Where's the fun in scrambling through shed loads of CDs looking for the one you were after. 

"Maybe, you have a CD player unironically in your front room right now. We admire the dedication." - well woop dee f*cking doo, I'm honoured.

The article did send me down the rabbit hole of freezing CDs. Am I the only one who had never heard of this? Any of you ever try it?

The article did remind me of the times I sat down with a ton of cds and a shitload of rum and the next time I grabbed some of those cds they were all in the wrong cases...lol...that wouldn't have happened if my cd player took only 1 disc but it is a 6 disc carousel....I pay closer attention these days so it hasn't happened for years....:)

I remember I once bought a 60 stacker Sony carousel player in the late 90s. Then I convinced myself that hitting random and having 20 second gaps between tracks as different cds loaded was "awesome". :rolleyes:

I have never heard of it and scared of trying it. I do actually have 2 exact same copies of a few albums so I will experiment this weekend and let you know. It's too intriguing not to try...

I've never seen one of those in action, but that's hilarious.

LOL.

I used to have one of those 12 disc CD changers in the back of my car and remember thinking how awesome that was on random.  Same thing....CD's would take like 30 seconds to load and settle on a song.  And bumps would always cause skips.

Spotify definitely accomplishes the same thing much easier today ;)

    • Kind of where I'm at too.  I like a few tunes here and songs are okay but alot of the songs sort of feel samey.  I think I've put 3 songs in my playlist from it.  
    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun.

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
