^Nice on the J Dilla!

I can see Dark Side as one big song but not the Wall. The Wall has always felt like a big bloated mess to me, granted, it's a big bloated mess with a lot of great moments in between. ("Run Like Hell, Goodbye Blue Sky, Hey You, In The Flesh, Mother, Comfortably Numb" etc)

'Money' sort of ruins the flow of Dark Side imo. But I can see what Ziggy is saying.

I thought The Wall, especially the first disc, flowed nicely.

Well, it has been around 2 years since I heard the Wall and I was pretty young when I was big into it. Maybe my opinion on it has changed. I never thought "Money" particularly ruined the flow, although it definitely stuck out in the tracks as being the most radio-friendly and upbeat.

I think we all loved The Wall as kids just because of ABITW Part 2. I used to feel so rebellious writing the lyrics on my school work....

Haha, yeah I've heard about it. And you're right, it would annoy me. I'd still like to have it for collection purposes though.

I mostly buy lofi metal releases and for those my preferred format is the cassette. The initial cost of purchasing is lower than CDs & significantly lower than vinyl, and because they're produced in limited runs they can increase in value as well. The sound quality is imperfect and degrades with time - but when the music is (genuinely) lofi, I don't see it as too big of a deal.

As far as recent fantastic deals, I got Proclamation's "Messiah of Darkness & Impurity" for $5, which is cool 'cuz I could sell it for $50.

Just been offered the following vinyls from a guy I messaged on Ebay:

The Velvet Underground & Nico
Led Zeppelin 1, 2, 4, Physical Graffiti and Houses of the Holy
Black Sabbath - Mater of Reality & Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
Pink Floyd - DSOTM
The Who - Who's Next

£20 for all of them, they're all in good condition and are originals bought when they were released. I'm guessing I should bite his hand off?

There's something about buying a new record, coming home with it, and putting it on the needle. You give it your full attention, no distractions, it feels like a ritual to me almost. Even when I get them in the mail, I still do the same thing. I really do prefer getting one at a time though, it gives me the feeling that I don't have worry about them piling up in my room, potentially not even being listened to. Well, that and I don't like having to worry about more than one thing at a time.

From what I experienced with CD's, it's a bit different, a bit more involved, more anticipation in hearing the sound coming from within the groves. I don't get the same feeling with CD's that I do with vinyl, after I'm done ripping a CD in a loseless format, it becomes an object that takes up space.
