G'day RockerFrank. Thanks for the input man. I have realised that I'm in way over my depth with you guys. Not only on a technical side, but also about sound quality. I grew up with vinyl on my parent's decent system. When I listen to music, I like good sound. Full and clear. I know quite and loud vinyl. But, that's about it.
Thankfully, I made an enquiry before I let rip.
You're right man. 'Recommendation' is the right word. I'm no expert, historian, musician or journalist. A review should be critical and objective.
I have missed a lot over the last few years, when I let vinyl slip from my life. It's an absolute joy to experience it again. I go to bed and wake up thinking about music and my records, although I don't strictly listen to vinyl.
I'm now on the hunt again, and my eagerness nearly got the better of me. I've really been thinking about the music I listen to, and I thought I could share that. I'm hooked on this forum and don't mind writing a line or two.
I write about albums I listen to without going too much into the artist profile. I have let personal opinions about bands stand in the way of the music. An example is the new Sepultura 'Machine Messiah'. It's common opinion that they lost the plot. This album kicks ass.
Again, Thanks Man.
