  1. New A Perfecle Circle 10"

    Was stupid enough to buy one!
  2. Amenra . Mass VI

    Still looking for the blue variant in case someone wants to get rid of theirs
  3. I think I received mine a month ago...
  4. Received it today and was positively surprised that it was sent from the UK...so, no additional taxes! YAY!
  5. Yeah man, great package! Also liked the O‘brother very much! Looking forward to checking their other stuff. Have to check the other stuff! Thanks again for this great package! Don‘t worry about the taxes...was only something like 8€! Nevermind!
  6. Soooo, I've received my gift today! I received a letter from customs last week that I have a package from Canada waiting for me and I was like "WTF did I order in Canada"...normally, you have to pick it up at customs showing them an invoice so they are able to calculate additional taxes & fees.... Well, I arrived at the customs and they asked me for the invoice...told them I don't have one and don't even know what's inside... And f*cking customs force one to open the package in front of them...Viola! A letter saying that this is my VC SS Gift Package! I wanted to wait until Christmas before opening it and (at least) celebrate it by putting on some music and have a beer with it, but c'est la vie...was happy to at least get mine before the holidays! So, I paid the f*cking taxes and drove home quite excited to see in detail what's inside! Here are pics (took them when I was back home): Very nice letter from my Santa...after the introduction, I had to go back to my post in here to see if he/she was right But yeah, I got the point! HAHA A nice set of stickers from labels I like Plus the mix CD in a self-made paper-case. You see the tracklist of the mix CD on the previous picture! Have to admit that I don't know any of the bands except for Caspian & Braveyoung! Really curious to check out the stuff, especially the local bands! The first record I've received is a Intheclouds Lathe Cut which I didn't own! Fever Basin 7"by Unconditional Arms! Only 35 made! WOW! I was very disappointed by ITC lathe cuts...the quality was really poor when I received my first ones from the 12 Days of Christmas thingy back in 2013 or 2014 (I guess)...but I heard Dan changed the lathe cut machine and my Santa stated that it was one of his best sounding lathes! Looking forward to hearing it as I never heard any music by this band before! What a fantastic start... The first 12" I've found was O'Brother's "The Death of Day" on clear vinyl. I only know the band's name but don't have a clue about the music they make. Just giving it the first spin as I write (first song, Providence)! NICE! Reminds me of Immanu El a little bit! Like it so far! GOOD JOB, SANTA! Second 12" in the package was Birds in Row's "You, Me & The Violence". Again, I only know the band's name and haven't heard anything of/by them before! One of my Santa's favorite records & bands...so, really curious to learn what he likes! The final gift in my package was Nevermen's s/t. Looking at my collection list, Santa found out that I have a musical crush on Mike Patton! And seriously, I like almost ALL his stuff...Faith No More is one of my all-time favorite bands! Funny enough that I've wanted to pick up this record for such a long time but never did...I somehow forgot that it exists! And I didn't even give it a listen when released! As I know Mike Patton, I'm prepared for ANYTHING! But since I always wanted to pick this record up and forgot it, it was the pleasant final surprise of my package! Really have to thank my Santa for this package! As this was my first time participating in the VC SS, this package exceeded all my expecations! Not only did my SS pay a shitload of money on shipping (almost 40 CAN to get this to me) but did also some very nice and deliberate picking of records! I was really looking forward to receive NEW MUSIC (at least to my ears)! And this was done perfectly! I only heard a single of the Nevermen record before it was released and didn't know any music by any of the other bands! I'm really looking forward to checking out the records in the next weeks! Thanks @daegor for your effort and over-the-top-package! Couldn't be happier! Wish you a fantastic Christmas with your beloved ones and hope the package you received/will received is only half as nice as the one I got!!!
  7. intheclouds 12 Lathes of Christmas

    Well, I didn't buy several, though... Not in a hurry, was rather a general question...
  8. intheclouds 12 Lathes of Christmas

    So, how does refunds for shipping work? Do we have to contact Dan? Can't remember... Cause I'm not going to pay $23 for shipping a 7"...
  9. FINALLY!!!! AAHHHHHHH I'M SCREAMING!!!!!! https://burningshed.com/tag/Porcupine Tree&filter_category_id=66
  10. Strange, for me he's one of the very few who technically could do everything he wants to but rather plays very emotionally and doesn't exaggerate the technical jerking... I mean the solo of "Drive Home" (starting at 5:08) is so perfect...my favorite solos of the last 5 years I'd say!
  11. Oh, you should definitely check'em out! Gavin played drums on his first solo album...on TRTRTS & H.C.E. it's Marco Minnemann, who is a freaking beast! I love Gavin's drumming but kudos to Marco Minnemann, he's incredible! To be honest, I was suprised by Guthrie...never heard of him before and he's, hands-down, probably the best guitar player I've ever seen! That guy is incredible...I just can't put it in words! I think where Insurgentes was a collection of songs which didn't fit PT, Grace included more of a real song-writing procedure... But honestly, TRTRTS had brillant moments! Fantastic songs from start to finish although some doodling was just too much IMO! Until Hand.Cannot.Erase, Insurgentes was my favorite solo record...but then came HCE and BOOM! This is perfection from start to finish...it's a whole package that makes it the perfect SW-album! I never really listen to single songs from this record but the whole thing! It's fantastic!
  12. Am I the only one who is on the one hand happy for SW that his solo career is that successful but on the other hand I wish he wasn't that successful so there was still a chance to continue PT? I mean his solo stuff is excellent (the last one was mediocre), but it's still not the same
  13. Impact Crater 172 left Swathes of Smoke 26 left Lava Pool 223 left
  14. My top-2 Bands ever! i know what you mean...there are a lot of people who got to know PT because of their heavier phase. It’s also my favorite phase of theirs...but there are so many good records/songs from their time before the Opeth-link! Especially LBS and SD! Love them!
  15. There was one which ended yesterday...plus 3 blue ones and a red one. Have never seen 5 Deadwing LPs on eBay at the same time...
  16. I meant bothering yourself looking up the numbers... WOW, so many first press Deadwings showing up on ebay right now
  17. Question should be: why do you bother checking this nonsense on a daily basis?
  18. intheclouds 12 Lathes of Christmas

    Did I just pay $22.45 for shipping the Owel 7“??? haha, will probably cancel if this won’t be adjusted...wtf?!
  19. Well, there were (I'd say) three different phases in the band's history...first the rather ambient/space rock thingy like Voyage, then the mellow rock things like Lightbulb Sun and the last one which was their heavier stuff starting with In Absentia (or rather Steven Wilson producing Opeth's BWP in 2000/2001)
