In reply to:

I really need to buy some CDs (mine were all stolen)




Well, SOAD's latest is called Steal This Album!, so I guess that is fitting. I like their second disc, with Chopped Suey on it (although I like most of the tracks, not just that one). I didn't like Steal this Album nearly as much, and haven't heard the first one.

These are not so much full CD's, but I have listed some songs that I have always thought sounded great on my Axiom gear and still sound great on my MA's.

Keep in mind however that I'm a metalhead!

Annihilator - Insomniac (CD-Carnival Diablos)
Balance of Power - Hard Life (CD-Perfect Balance)
Black Label Society - Funeral Bell (CD-The Blessed Hellride)
Corrosion of Conformity - Clean My Wounds (CD-Deliverance)
Edguy - The Headless Game (CD-Theater of Salvation)
Hammerfall - Let The Hammer Fall (CD-Legacy of Kings)
Korn - Word Up (CD-Greatest Hits Vol.1)
Faith No More - Stripsearch (CD-Who Cares A Lot)
Megadeth - Crush Em (CD-Risk)
Paradise Lost - Erased (CD-Symbol Of Life)
Pillar - Fireproof (CD-Fireproof)
Prong - Rude Awakening (CD-Rude Awakening)
Staind - Mudshovel (CD-Dysfunction)

I can go on and on but those are a few. I would also highly recommend almost anything by Dream Theatre, Stratovarious and Symphony X........just to name a few!

Last but not least, ZZ TOP!

OT: It's good to see that there are a few Dream Theater and Porcupine Tree fans around the boards. They're two bands that deserve so much more credit than they often receive(and also my two favorites). With PT, I've never heard them on commercial radio but absolutely everyone that I've introduced them to has really enjoyed them. Also, their new cd comes out in early Jan. (stereo and 5.1 mix) so 2005 is off to a good start for new music.

My Back in Black CD was the victim of a scratch that prevents it from playing. I bought the remastered version and it sounds excellent. Too bad the old one won't play, because I'd love to hear them back to back. Based on what I hear now, I think the original recordings were better that we think they were.

Anyone ever compare the "original" to the remastered mix of the same album?

The remastered Master of Puppets CD is way, way better than the original. On the other hand, the remastered Ride the Lightning is just about the same; maybe a little brighter. Limitations of the source material, I guess.

Hey spock, I don't usually like rock music that is heavy on guitar, but I totally love "In Absentia". Great music and sounds fantastic with the Axioms! Are you familiar with Dredg? I heard they're pretty good too.

Anyway, for some reason, I've always liked Nine Inch Nails ever since the first album (although the music has changed a bit since then). If you like that type of music, I would highly recommend "The Fragile". Excellent recording.

Sonicfox, how far back in the PT catalogue have you gone? The heavy guitar just started on "In Absentia" so you may want to try to find "Lightbulb Sun", and "Stupid Dream". They're both out of print right now so it's rare that you'll find them in stores. I know that they plan to release them under the new record label, but it'll be some time. If you haven't heard PT's live stuff, you should definitely check out "Warszawa" and "Coma Divine" from their website.

I've not heard Dredg before. I'll be sure to check them out though.
