That brings back a lot of memories from my high school years. I used to listen to Holy Diver when I worked out in my parents basement. Great classic metal album!
Just bought this 4 disc CD (not the DVD version) of Rod Stewart's music. Used on Amazon- a lot of music for a few dollars. I'm reminded how strong his earlier material was....those first few albums were quite strong gravely voice blues rock. The last CD covers his 80's material and honestly is pretty lame IMO. The first three discs are great. I like his 60's/70's output through the "do ya think I'm sexy" time frame...just a guy I grew up hearing, but other than "think I"m sexy"-another formative Middle School purchase- never owned any of his music. OK--"think I'm Sexy" was pretty lame-but for some reason I like it...the dude had swag.
Symphony X - "V: The New Mythology Suite"
Just picked this up at a local record store. I've been casually looking for it for a while, and I finally stumbled upon it. This album for some reason is not available digitally online to stream or to purchase anywhere. I've been getting into the habit lately of buying physical CD's again anyway. I'm listening to an Apple Lossless rip of it right now and it is a great album. I also picked up Dream Theater's "Images and Words" on CD today as well, used for $4.99. I'll be giving that another listen next.
Edit: The Symphony X album is now available on iTunes, last time I looked it was not. It wasn't on MOG last I checked either, or Amazon MP3. Either way, I'm trying to get away from lossy MP3 downloads anyway.
I've got almost every REM album, and I have a close friend who has everything I don't, so I've got all but Fables Of The Reconstruction on my computer (we only have one copy of that between the two of us, and it's on vinyl). I'm a bit more than a casual fan, if I do say so myself.
I knew I shouldn't have posted that, hold on there is a knock at the door...
