Doesn't anybody read the auctions before bidding?  I see a Buy-It-Now price of $500 coming for this re-release soon!

Thanks bud, sounds like a helluva deal!!!

 

I just don't understand some people. Stupid people like that feed Sam's problem of not generally releasing the CDs. Just ridiculous.

I was searching on Ebay when I found that auction. It dumbfounds me greatly. The first problem I see is that luck313 bid on it. He said he doesn't buy cds. The second problem is that it's a re-release. Something about both aspects seem greatly disturbing. If Retrospect is a legitimate record company it would look like they would press 1000+ copies or whatever the demand may be and sell it for like $20 a piece. Also, they should make it very clear that they are selling a re-release and not the original. You don't see Metal Mayhem, Perris, and the other record companies out there pulling this suspicious junk.

The wording in that add sucks. I can see why people might think this is the real thing.This line alone makes you think you are bidding on the real thing. COLLECTORS ARE FALLING ALL OVER THEMSELVES TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THIS GEM - AND NOW YOU HAVE THE CHANCE!! DO NOT PASS THIS UP - THIS CD USUALLY GOES FOR $1000+. LET THE BIDDING BEGIN!

 

It does state that it was released 1990/2005, but before that it states that this is 1990 ULTRA HYPER RARE AOR HAIR METAL. The probem is that it never really says which release this one is. Is the average cd collector supposed to know that Vegascds is Retrospect Records, and it is his reissue that he is selling?

 

All of us here know that it's a reissue, but how many people get scammed by not being given the facts without the round about wording. If it were advertised by saying, "This is a reissue of the 1990 Ultra Rare Aor Hair Metal" and people still payed hundreds for it, then let it be. Until then, it just looks like he is trying to scam people.

My 6th grade nephew can read that description for that auction and see that it is a reissue from 2005.........

 

Move on............ :gives:

The biggest thing that bothers me (if it's true) is that they are not factory pressed silver cd's but apparently cd-r's. Other than that, if a person reads the auction it should be apparent it is a reissue. He words it a little slick but all the information is there.

Do you really think those people bidding $200 don't think it is an original? Do you truly think they are willing to pay that much money for a cdr? You may be aligned with Sam, but if you can honestly say that the bidders believe they are paying for a "reissue", then you are as screwed up as the bidders are. The language used in his description is meant to deceive. Mission accomplished!

If you read the board you would know that Michael Butt....aka MButt HAS talked with Luck313 and he DOES, in fact....without a doubt, know that that was a reissue......

 

Please....get your facts straight before trying to get into it with me.....I'd appreciate it....

 

As for the Italian bidder....I have no idea what he knows...or doesn't know....

 

Yes....when one puts 1990/2005 it's deceiving...... Yeah...ok.....*shakes head*....I guess my nephew is a genius then.....

I e-mailed Sam under a different name a while back on the Friction cd (because I didn't feel like starting a war with him). I asked him if the cd was a silver pressed original. He did say that it was not but it had been pressed at a plant with excellent artwork. I guess you could look at it either way. One side would be he is not exactly stating it in his auctions. The other side would be that at least he was honest with me in the e-mail. I feel bad for the bands if they are not seeing any money on these "reissues" & I would not pay a ton of money for these cd's. But honestly, if someone would silver press these cd's, I'd be hard pressed not to buy them. Beats the shit out of the prices the originals go for <_<

    • Out In The Cold - Judas Priest 
    • “We’ve Lost the Fight” As with the majority of Mr Reece’s output over the last decade or so, this gets a solid “meh” from me. 😐
    • Both songs are fine, but due to the different vocalists, and the change up from melodic hard rock to straight  AOR, it almost sounds like two different bands.     I’ll keep ‘em on my radar, but slightly less enthused now…
    • Always worth checking out... unsure how good it'll be, but worth the ear time. 
    • Why not? Spinning it again, editing some photos with a beer, so why not drop a thought or two on a track by track basis; 1. Heart of Glass ; nice very mellow opener, almost like an extended intro. Beautiful mood/atmosphere and a great track inviting the listener to grab a Six Strings Dark Red IPA and sit down to get immersed. Some kind of dark sounds in a hooky, sweet chorus.  2. Something You Can Give Yourself ; first single from the album which is a slightly different, more poppy vibe for the band. Super catchy/hooky, with infectious chorus keys that stick in the ear cavity. Great pop rock song.  3. Closer ; most recent single and arguably my favourite single, but now I'm not sure. I love them all, but this has such a dark, sultry vibe with an absolute monster chorus hook. One of the album's best.   4. Better For You ; mellow, sultry again. Love the guitar parts in this one, and another really strong, catchy chorus. Super catchy, easy to listen to song.  5. The Fool ; duet with a female vocalist. I don't get many details on Apple music but if I had to guess I'd think this might be the same lady that featured in the duet on the previous album. She has a nice voice and it's a good song. Another big chorus layered with strong hooks and appealing instrumentation. Good song, and one I can see really growing too.   6. Need a Friend ; another of the singles and hearing them all back to back, very fair chance this might be my pick of the singles. Can't speak highly enough of this dude's voice, and his vocals are sublime on this one. Chorus and the hooks it possesses are perfect too. Yeah this one could be my pick. Love it. Angst-wise, probably as close as this album gets to 'On The Mend' too.  7. Ordinary Love ; or is this one my favourite? Another of the many singles. More absolutely sublime vocals, super sexy groove and another massive, hook laden chorus. Nice little rhythm guitar solo too, lol. Incredibly catchy and heavenly on the ears.  8. The Morning ; and here comenceth the truly fresh, brand new section of the album, void of any more of the already released singles. Stripped back, super smooth song with the vocals again (speaking of smoothness) smooth enough to butter your toast with in the morning. Another nice little solo and strong chorus hooks again.   9. In Too Deep ; I remember them talking about this song on one of their podcasts; just can't remember the context. This will surely be the next single, I'd guess. Easily on par with the best songs on the album. Another huge chorus with the production sounding a million dollars. I think I pay more attention to the drums in this band because the core of the band is the lead singer and drummer, and drums sound incredible across the whole album. Really vibing with them on this tune. Killer cut.   10. Don't Hold Your Breath ; drums, vocals, production, groove, hooks, chorus, harmonies, did I mention the vocals... nothing skipped or glossed over, again. Typically flawless TBV tune they seem to be able to write in their sleep.  11. I'll Be There (You'll Never Have to Ask) ; probably the most subdued song on the album. A bit like a smooth kind of pop rock tune. Still can't fault it in any way. Vocals just caressing my ears and another strong chorus hook. Poppy, but a very nice tune.  12. The Weight of Your World ; another very sudbued, mellow tune to close out the album, I guess in the same way it began. Drums and vocals shine like diamonds again. and this song is a bit of a different structure. There's a beautiful (just over) mid section that draws me in completely. Turns out it's actually the outro, leading into an extended piano closure to the album. A soothing wind-down, I'd call it.    And there we go. One EP and two albums in and I still can't find a filler from these guys. Initial listen, I thought this was a fair way off 'On The Mend' and when it's all said and done I think that album will be pretty untouchable. But only second listen in and I'm realising it won't be as clear-cut as I might have originally thought. This is pure class, and I don't really want to make any predictions as to where this might sit after a few months with it. One thing for sure, is that it was well and truly worth the wait and I am thoroughly fulfilled.
