  1. Agreed, I'm not a huge Pink Floyd fan, but I completely agree it is by far the strongest of the albums I've heard (Dark Side Of The Moon, Animals, WYWH, The Wall.)
  2. Recieved the following from my family for christmas: Rush - Fly By Night Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Queensryche - The Verdict
  3. I want to first acknowledge that I do want a new album very much, but I do feel like if they can't capitalize on a new album by touring currently it wouldn't be worth it to release it currently. If they had already released a reunion album then I'd be on the train of why haven't you released one during the lockdown. But seeing as they haven't yet released a reunion album I don't think it would be right in a way to release one during the lockdown. That being said if they released CD2 or some compilation of demos from the CD era it would be fine but not a proper album at this time. I think they could have done more, but I don't think an album is the answer until things get better.
  4. 2020 in terms of new music for me has mainly been playing catch up but I can say the following tracks have been some which I really enjoyed: Ordinary Man - Ozzy Osbourne - This track frankly is my favourite track which Ozzy sings on at any point in his career, it is a beautiful ballad and the music video is one of the few which I will actually watch (I hate the concept of music videos). Realize & The Mists Of Time - AC/DC - Power Up is a great comeback for AC/DC and these two tracks are the ones which I enjoy the most, Realize being a brilliant rocker which calls back to the 80s, with The Mists Of Time being a mini rocker Throw My Bones - Deep Purple - This is how a band should age, Ian Gillen sounds amazing, and the band has really evolved with their frankly advanced age, this track is like rock meets crooning, and I dig it.
  5. Yes - And You And I, such a powerful and beautiful track
  6. Yes they should, although all talking should be done prior to the track beginning, and band introductions should be seprarate from the track whenever possible.
  7. I haven't gone alone to one yet, but this potentially would occur once we are allowed to have them again.
  8. November Rain, Estranged and Don't Cry, although when I hear them often the impact is lessened.
  9. I've been toying with the Queen and Rolling Stones Box sets for weeks. This while incredibly helpful makes them more tempting which isn't ideal at this time xD
  10. Over the last week: Europe - Wings Of Tomorrow AC/DC - Power Up AC/DC - Ballbreaker In progress: Iced Earth - Alive In Athens, although this one is being split over multiple sittings due to it being 3 hours.
  11. Probably my final Vinyl purchase for the year, unless I come across some of the records on my instant purchase list, is the 5 vinyl box set of Iced Earth - Alive In Athens. It came in today, the set looks beautiful, I'm deciding on how I approach it since the album is 3 hours long. That cover art was created for Vinyl.
  12. Nightwish - Ever Dream (Live At Wacken 2013)
  13. Kiss - Alive! Deep Purple - Stormbringer Alter Bridge - Walk The Sky 2.0 ZZ Top - Eliminator
  14. I suspect he hasn't been given the go ahead to comment on the new SMKC album, he didn't talk about Living The Dream until Slash officially announced it either if I remember correctly.
  15. Add Kiss - Alive! to that list of recently acquired albums. Such a good live album.
  16. Over the past month I've been acquiring some records to either complete classic runs of bands I've been into for a while, or to add to the collection of more recently discovered bands that I've been getting into, albiet I'm very late to the game for some of these bands, either by avoidance or taking longer to get used to their singer's vocals Black Sabbath - Paranoid Black Sabbath - Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Black Sabbath - Sabotage Elton John - Madman Across The Water Judas Priest - Sad Wings Of Destiny Judas Priest - Angel Of Retribution Rush - Signals Rush - Grace Under Pressure Rush - Power Windows Rush - Presto Scorpions - Savage Amusement Yes - The Yes Album Yes - Fragile Yes - Close To The Edge Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans Yes - 90125 Needless to say my turntable has had quite a few spins as of late.
