Whilst (still) clearing out my amassed cr@p from the loft; I came across my old cassette albums. Believe it or not it was mid 90's before I purchased anything on CD. Mainly because I used to listen to all my music on headphones whilst going to work etc and portable CD players were dreadful back then. I found myself getting very nostalgic and i've decided to slowly replace them with cd's. I've found most of them are available on eBay for £2-3 and the first batch turned up today (Soul Asylum - Let your dim light shine/grave dancers union and Moist - Silver) I'm really enjoying catching up with them, to be honest they aren’t as good as I remember them to be but I’m enjoying the nostalgia trip nonetheless.
I’ve also bought the new Metallica album (despite its advertised release date of tomorrow!) and the new release by Staind. The Metallica one is ok, certainly better than St Anger but I’m listening to it for the first time now so I will reserve judgement until i’ve had another couple of listens. I haven’t had chance to listen to the staind one yet. I did plan to sit and listen to them both last night but a 16 hour shift pretty much blew the chances of that out of the window....oh well at least it meant I only have to come in for 2 hours tomorrow.
