The Return / The Great Ripp Offs

Hi All,

Been away too long, mainly been so busy due to the misses having surgery and being a single dad for a while but finally found time to return.

While i've been away i've still been obsessively listening to music, here's whats been floating my boat:

John Coffey - Bright Companions
Unbelievable screamy goodness from the Netherlands, produced by Jag Jago from Ghost Of A Thousand, just started listening to this but it's already pounding my brain

Cars On Fire - Black Hearts & Bloody Hands
The first album by these guys showed promise, this takes it to a whole other level, heavy as hell and melodic as fuck, love it!!!

Parkway Drive - Atlas
Fucking brutal, still need to watch the DVD i got with it but i bet that's awesome as well

Axewound - Vultures
What's that an album featuring the singer out of Bullet For My Valentine that's not shite? Yes it's not shite in fact it's really fucking good!!

Soundgarden - King Animal
I know, i know, i was sceptical that this would be rubbish as well, but in fact it's the most consistently good album they've ever done

Deftones - Koi No Yokan
The most beautifully heavy album i've ever heard, this is what i've been waiting for from these guys for quite some time.

Ultrasound - Play For Today
haven't even listened to this yet but i intend to shortly and i know it will blow me away when i do

The Great Ripp Offs

Finally i've got to say i'm sick of seeing Deluxe Editions that are a ripp-off

The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness 5CD/1DVD £140!!!!!!!!

The Rolling Stones - GRRR! 5CD/1 7"/1 Book £100!!!!!!!!!!!

U2 - Joshua Tree 2CD/1DVD £76.21!!!!!!!!!!!!

These prices are starting to take the piss, they say artists barely make any money from the sale of records so then why are they so high for deluxe editions, i recently got the Manic Street Preachers Generation Terrorists one with 3CD's 1 DVD, 1 10" record, a book, a photo and a fake backstage pass for £45, which is a fare cry from the £140 for the Pumpkins one. Fucking disgrace!!!!!!
