    Got this off of EBAY (Pictures) as I haven't got Sin After Sin yet. I really appreciate the responses though. I really want to know if that 1990 re-issue (as Trillmeister pointed out) the same as the '87 US CD? sounds like it from what I'm getting here just light on the bass. Right?

    it's funny for me as sound-wise my 1st album I ever heard of JP was Unleashed. Soon after British Steel came out. Then, I started buying the older releases and really had a hard time getting past the (IMHO) weak sound. Whether Unleashed is a TRUE Live album or not it really gave those songs some much needed sonic teeth. So, I assumed all the back catalogue would be similar in sound?If that makes sense from the perspective of a teenager? But, now I'm really digging the sound and vibe of Hell Bent For Leather (AF) and me thinks I need to go back to these old classics and re-submerge myself in them sonically(blasting these babies loud!!!!):evil:

    Thanks good to know. But, as this Forum has taught me (the hard way always it seems:doh:) there's a lot of "Curve-Ball" issues/Re-issues of CDs out there that are to be avoided or at least better mastering options out there. All you guys ROCK here!!!Thanks for the useful input! I asked and you guys answered!!!YEAH!!!:edthumbs:

  5. all my CD's with that SACEM/BIEM logo sound great.

    Silver looks so much better than other CD colors these days.

    Why? Because it sounds slowed down?

  7. I'm torn as to which version is more fantastic: the studio cut (with the abrupt ending) or the live rendition on "Staying A Life".

    The Staying A Life version has a glorious ending which rises to an incredible crescendo - aided by Kaufman's thundering yet always tasteful percussion and Baltes' nimble basslines - yet there's a twin harmony section a few minutes before the finale which
    sounds fuller and more developed on the studio album (Restless and Wild) version.

    One thing that continues to impress me about Accept (aside from the many aspects that other fans and reviewers have praised) is how they coast and ride along with great riffs and verses, hardly ever rushing to a chorus.

    The payoff of many Accept songs is just fantastic, precisely because they rarely rush a chorus before the first 70-80 seconds of a song.

    This probably doesn't engender them to many casual radio-rock fans, but it absolutely rewards repeat listens 10x.

    Ah, because it cuts off so abruptly. Forgot about that.

    As I'm constantly finding (often prompted by the righteous guidance of venerable members from hereabouts) it really does pay to exercise your 70s 'Priest as regularly as possible.

    A whole sitting through Sad Wings Of Destiny usually finds me kind of stunned for a minute or two once it's done: some 40 minutes of life as sheer nectar.

    Like 'Sabbath, BÖC and Rush, there's something very-heavy-but-not-necessarily-all-that-metallic about much of this period's representation c/o this trio but in terms of sheer music and sonic bliss (not necessarily perfection, mind) it's one of the most verdent pastures in Creedo Valley.

    I've never tried to sit down and figure it out, but if hard pressed, this could be my favorite album of all time. And agreed, every time I listen to the album I'm left dumbfounded afterwards from it's sheer brilliance.

    Thanks to whoever hipped me to Lost in Vegas, the open-minded rap fans that review metal songs. I wanted y'all to know they had a reaction to Black Sabbath's Heaven & Hell - they already loved War Pigs.

    Pretty much the reaction I had the first time hearing this song...

    Excellent, excellent band. Russian Roulette was the first Accept album I heard, but I haven't listened to it in a really long time, I just might.

    But, a note about Balls to the Wall. Gotta disagree. I think that song displays all their best traits quite well. Certainly not comparable to Enter Sandman. I also think that album is very consistent in quality.

    I just watched their War Pigs reaction and I was thinking that there's hope for the future.

    Lead singer of Inglorious, reminds me at times of "The Red Rocker" mixed with some Glen Hughes and Coverdale spronkles. Pretty damn good stuff really...

    I was intrigued until I saw that this album was mixed by Caveman Kevin Shirley.

    Just saw Steve Morse with the Dregs last Saturday Night. Ripping it! I hope the bone on bone issue he has will hold up through that DP& JP Tour? Or if someone knows some procedure Steve had for his hand? His playing is destroying his hand (s?) apparently. So sad...

    Talking of DP, even in its most cynically assembled iteration, I spun up TBRON last night and in the passage-of-time-softening manner of THOBL, found myself dutifully detached from pervasive sentiments and actually extracting virtue therefrom.

    I guess it's just cathartic to visit lesser trodden pathways of the Gillan-Blackmore-Lord axis.

    I played THOBL the other day and was immersed in the magic. :righton:

    It is a shame. Sometimes the body just can't keep doing what the brain tells it to do. He has been struggling for quite a while IIRC.

    DP and JP is such an awesome pairing... a shame that the two entities are rather withered at this point. I would love to go, but none of the dates work for me. Thankfully, I saw JP last month and DP last September.

    Don't forget the fanbase too:laugh:
    Our last "Metal" show (Fates Warning) I was struck by how grey the crowd was. It's like looking in a mirror when we see bands we grew up with getting....up there in age and appearance, sadly? Bands like the fans,some hold up better as time goes through the decades and others ? Not so well...:sigh:

    I recently saw The War on Drugs and was struck by how old the audience there was. My working theory is that middle-aged people are the only ones who have both the inclination to go to concerts and the money to afford concert tickets.
