Judas Priest: Stained Class
Judas Priest: Ram it Down

So, some thoughts:

Judas Priest Retro:
I had a few cds already and a hits disc as well. I finally decided that since I could get all of these for under $5ea and a few sub $10 I'd go ahead and try to complete my JP catalog seeing as their new album was about to drop and it had been bugging me I was missing discs from a "set" where the spines spelled out their name. Man, those were great cds to go through. I loved their variety and I loved how they could do it all... slow, fast, aggressive, screamo, real singing, shreiking... all of it. Such good adrenaline music!

Judas Priest: Firepower
WOW, for a band this long time in the game, to deliver a album that epic was great. I really liked it.

Def Leppard set:
Saw I could get their catalog up through Hysteria ( the only tape/cd I had had of theirs till I got Vault the hits disc) and for a great price. I was pleasantly surprised that all of their old stuff kicked so much ass. I just had a hard time with them when Adrenalize came out and anything after that, although if they do a volume two and i can get the post-Hysteria catalog on the cheap I might do it.

Metallica retro:
I was pleasantly surprised with my MoP remaster 3CD purchase from last year that I decided these remasters were super cheap and the sound enhancements were audible that I'd double dip. A little cleaner and a little bit more bass makes a lot of difference but you need the sound system to take advantage of the changes as they are subtle. Justice has grown to be one of my favorite cds of theirs so I wouldn't mind getting it in remastered form. I thought the live disc was pretty good too.

Guns N Roses: Appetite for Destruction retro
I don't buy these expensive CE's like this but in this case, seeing as it was one of the first tapes I ever got, and with my own money no less, it held a special place in my heart and mind. IMO, it is one of the greatest metal albums of all time. My main reason for splurging on the CE though was the 4 extra discs of content that were new covers I hadn't heard them do (some live), basically also including a lot of tracks of Lies, and some new unreleased stuff. So it was like getting a ton of new cds to listen to aside from the main album. I also loved getting that BR of their music videos off Appetite and Lies with remastered audio tracks for the videos. While the memorabilia and pictorials from the time were a nice bonus, I was more into this for the music.

Jack White's new cd.
So esoteric, eclectic, and innovative. It had a lot of songs that just spoke to me.

Prophets of Rage:
So when I heard the band former called RATM, Chuck D of Public Enemy, and B Real of Cypress Hill had formed a rock band where you had that kind of talent on instruments and behind the mic rapping I had to get this cd. I was blown away by how good all these guys fit together. I also think that there are only a few select MCs in the rap game that can actually rap to metal/rock music and these two guys are on that list. A really good disc and I'd recommend people check it out.

Stone Temple Pilots new disc:
Heard they had a new lead singer and this was their debut cd with him. WOW. He sounded just like Scott Weiland. A pretty solid rocker and I hope they can keep it going with the new vocalist.

Jimi Hendrix purchases:
I liked South Saturn Delta when I got it so when I heard about this cd hitting I got the Both Sides of the Sky. EPIC. The other one was on sale super cheap the day I got the prior cd so I got both. Its pretty good too.

Eminem's cds:
Kamikaze is a return to form IMO for his normal satiric, sarcastic, and just his overall style of byte when he's pissed off. I personally think that is when Em is at his best. He needs fuel for his fire. As far as Revival goes, I didn't hate it like others did, but I can say that while insightful on some tracks, it just lacked that classic Eminem punch.

"The others"
Some where cd's that finally got to a price that I'd buy them at, some where missing link fill ins, others were cds that I didn't even knew some of my favorite artists had put out so I had to get them to fill in their catalogs I had going. The only one that I thought was kind of weak was the Evenassence one. Without that rock band behind her, it just doesn't have the same vibe and punch like their first 3 cds did. Papa Roach cd was pretty legit and I liked the bonus live disc. I had been wanting that Wyclef for a while but it was way too much. I really like his post Fugees music more than what he did with the Fugees. Paul Wall is Paul Wall... nice beat and rhymes... I just wish he'd expand on the topics he raps about---same ol' same ol' gets old after a while even if has a good bounce to it. The Suicidal stuff was pretty decent but not overly amazing. That new Godsmack was good but if you listen to their prior works and then this, you would come away thinking that its sounds like Godsmack but it doesn't feel like Godsmack--not a bad cd but not amazing.

Darn, forgot about that Cypress Hill cd. Pretty good. Its sounds as classic as it does new. I still think they are the only group that can do what they do and sound like they sound. No one is like them. Just glad they finally put some new stuff out.
