Forgot to add this:


Found this to be a total disappointment, I didn't expect a total return to form but this was just so underwhelming and pretentious but the second half gets better. I think it's just the parts were greater than the sum, not to mention the production is tough on the ears. I long for Fusion Santana or the Santana from the first three albums at least. Now the Afro-Latin sexual swagger is too Viagra induced to be believable, a couple more hours of this and I'd have to see a doctor...

Finally a real perspective of this album! Everywhere else I read, it's like the second coming of Santana 3.

It's still in the vein of what he's done since Supernatural only with less "star" power but the pandering to radio is still there and with that being said I prefer albums like Supernatural, Shaman & All That I Am because their pandering is at least better if there is such a thing. I'm jamming Santana IV again and it's even more irritating this time around.

Another thing that sucks for me is Rollie lost that haunting vibe to his voice that I loved on those first 3 Journey albums and first 4 Santana albums cause that era of Rollie puts him right up there with my fave singers but he still knows how to coax a Hammond B-3.

My bootleg deluxe edition of 'Purple Rain' came in today so I'm stoked (2 hours and 40 minutes long). It'll go good with the original release and a 'Purple Rain Unedited' bootleg that I have that has a few differences from the boot I just got and lesser sound quality.

Apparently, there was more stuff that hadn't been put out yet and when the clerk saw me he put these three down next to me and asked if I was interested. I said, "All original pressings? oh yeah!"
Iron Maiden - Number Of The Beast
Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind
Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time

I had found these at the same time he showed me those:
Voivod - The Lost Machine / Jack Luminous 12" clear aqua green vinyl
Exciter - Feel The Knife 12"

non metal:
Sade - Diamond Life (That was the album I was actually looking for.)
Patrick Gleeson - Beyond The Sun: An Electronic Portrait of Holst's The Planets

How I wish we still had a decent music shop close by and even when there was such a thing we still didn't have a decent one but what we had was nice.
