In My Own Words:
No such thing as good or bad music! It comes down to what you like or don't like. Never conform. Remember the best record collection in the world is yours because it what you love to hear! Not what some media outlet tells you what you should like. The only opinion That counts is yours.

Sunday Night Above the Rain [Blu-ray] [Import] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Marillion
I ordered this from the Band's website and it exceeded all expectations. I have been a fan of this band for years but mainly the period with the original lead singer "Fish". I have tried a few times to get into the music from the second part of their career but it never clicked. I have a friend that is a die hard fan and I ended up ordering a copy with his. I LOVE THIS BLU RAY. Excellent show with excellent audio. It's shot very well to boot.

But each show has… Read more
A Passion Play [CD + DVD] ~ Jethro Tull

After reading Amazon reviews it's pretty obvious this album Jethro Tull fans seem to love or hate. Even Ian Anderson does not seem sure about this record. However I have benn very impressed with the Albums that have been remastered to date so I took a shot. I love this record. The keyboard work reminds of Tony Banks from Genesis. The album has a very thick sound to it and it was not destroyed by today's mastering standards. This is not overly compressed. Once again Steven Wilson does a stellar job remixing and remastering this album.
As a major Progressive Rock fan (my tastes are all over the place. Whether it be Miles Davis, Opeth, Neil Young, David Bowie, etc.) I am loving this 5.1… Read more
