Nice! I still need the Spaceman to complete the Kiss set but don't want to pay full price.
1. I bought the Ed Sheeran album out of the bin for one of my girls for Christmas. Never too soon to plan for the pandemic version of the holidays!
2. The Madonna album is as bad on vinyl as it is on CD (and I was ready to like it because i dig the first single). I gave that one to my son. I don’t think he has even listened to it yet.
Lol....I guess we will have to suffer seeing them in the bin for a long time to come. Unless they drop in price a bit more......
Since there isn't anything new and exciting to talk about in the bin, I'll talk about what I bought.
Props to @Larsen for I Was A King. Nice LP indeed, glad to have gotten it. But what completely blew me away was Band Of Gold. Holy smoke, I only paid $5 for this?!?! I read the sleeve a few times to find the writing credits for "I Wanna Dance With You Again" as it is a perfect slice of familiar 80's AOR. Could have sworn it was a Quarterflash cover. Curiously, as outstanding as that song is, the rest of the album (particularly side two) is much more adventurous, intriguing and fulfilling. "Dance" would make a singles tape any day of the week but the album is certain to be on heavy rotation.
Band of Gold has one other album which I promptly snagged on Discogs from a USA seller. Might be the find of the year for me and again, thanks so much for sharing this gem!
Say... anyone ever hear anything about that Nitzer Ebb box? I guess I’m still waiting out the backorder but I’m not sure how long I’m gonna wait... been a month since I ordered already. Kinda feel like if there were still copies around we would have heard something...
I'm still on backorder through Popmarket.
Just got this yesterday but haven't played it yet. Guess I will have to check this out first thing tomorrow!
^^^ Sincerely looking forward to hearing what you think of the album!
same. but it's still strange to me that they haven't just canceled the orders outright.
Agreed. Wasn’t this limited to like 600 copies to begin with?!
Gives me hope!
Hey! I'm glad you liked it. It seems our approach is more or less the same, though I heard "I Wanna Dance with You Again" several times on the radio before I understood that I really liked it. Then bought the album. I like the fact that it isn't about one certain way of doing music. It is exploring musical expressions. Too fleating to some (I've tried it on several friends - they find it inconsistent). I too bought the eponymously named first album after hearing "Where's the Magic". If you like their second serving, I do not think their first will do your ears any harm.
Seems we are indeed hearing this album the same way. What others are hearing as fleeting or inconsistent I'm hearing as varied and experimental. None are as immediate as "Dance" but no less interesting. Looking forward to the first album that has already shipped but media mail across the country means I'll be checking back in 10 days or so!
Well folks, I’m sorry to say that I caved first. Cancelled and took the refund on the Nitzer Ebb box. I really hope one of you gets it but I’m just doing the math in my head and I’m thinking if they only made 600 copies to start with, there’s basically no chance this thing is showing up as a backorder.
Sometimes you get the lady, sometimes you get the Tiger I guess.
I'm still hanging in there with Pop market.
Who knows, maybe you just moved up a spot in line now that I dropped out and you’ll get one! Fingers crossed for you, man.
I'll need all the luck I can get to receive one I think.
On the same order I also pre-ordered a cd that comes out on the 20th. I feel like when they go to ship out that CD they will see the Nitzer box on my order and just cancel it.
Ha ha, the rush of excitement when I see this thread at the top of my Watched Threads list. Damn!
was just thinking about this today. if no developments occur by the end of this week i think i might just cancel too.
could another good deal to repurpose my $65 on...
I hear that! I’ve been checking every night and still nada added. I’m sure there are a handful of CDs here and there but the vinyl number just keeps going down... SO DEPRESSING!!!
Less than 800 in the bin now. I guess they are waiting for the "Trolls World Tour" to sell out before adding new stuff. Every one here should buy 10 copies so we can get the bin moving again....
And that Brian Wilson album.
My last order, 6 cds. Only 4 were shipped/received. No emails about the missing 2 cds.
I put in a claim with Paypal.
That Brian Wilson album has literally been in the discount bins for years.
At this point, they should probably just give it away as a freebie.
