    Much like the 'I bought the coolest cd' thread over at the Dungeon/Lord forum, I thought we could have a single on going thread for people to post their hauls and other purchases in. I will start.

    Yesterday I bought:

    Sepultura - Dante XXI
    In Flames - The Jester Race/Black-Ash Inheritance
    Kaiser Chiefs - Employment

    I look forward to chucking on the new Seps this arvo.

    My last couple of purchases (as opposed to the free ones I get sent) were:

    Ozzy Osbourne - Under Cover
    Ruins - Spun Forth as Dark Nets

    The Ruins one is awesome. The Ozzy one is OK.

    Last week I bought:

    Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime II
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium

    Still haven't listened to them yet. Well, I've listened to half of the Ryche one, not da Peps though. I never get time.

    The first single from Stadium Arcadium is pretty generic crap. It disappointed me, and left me in no hurry to check out the album. I should though, there is rumours they will headline next years Big Day Out.

    I haven't heard the single yet. It seems I never hear new radio-friendly music unless it's covered on Australian Idol. :)

    I saw it on Rage. The clip was better than the song.

    Thats the one.

    After another listen, I did enjoy Dante XXI more. I will listen again tomorrow.

    Today I won ebay auctions for:

    The Tea Party - Triptych
    Kreator - Enemy Of God CD/DVD edition

    Got my hands on the Chili Peppers one, it is actually a bloody good album, they cover all the styles they have laid down in 20 years of recording, there is some real shit, but then there is some fucking awesome gear, but I reckon d/load a few tracks before going and spending the dough on a 2 disc album you mightn't listen too

    Listening to this now, holy shit I didn't expect the songs from the ep to be so good. I am not the biggest fan of In Flames (besides The Jester Race, which I love) so just thought it was a nice bonus, but it is an awesome bonus. Tacks onto the end of the album very nicely.

    Have you heard Whoracle, Blitzy? Awesome album. Some prefer The Jester Race, but not me.

    It seemed pale compared to The Jester Race for some reason, but I did enjoy it. Just seemed similar yet inferior or something. I do intend to give it another chance though, because it has the similar sound that I like.

    The same as RHCP, I saw the clip and the song seemed generic. I haven't heard a Pearl Jam song I liked since Yield came out. Just seems like they burnt out long ago but keep kicking because they can. U2 seem a bit like that at times too.

    You could use the same argument with most bands that have been around for 20 years really.

    If RHCP could do more funky stuff I'd be more willing to give them a go. Too much of what I hear of them is bland and radio-friendly.

    I havne't listened to In Flames for a while. Both Whoracle and The Jester Race are great, with the latter being heavier.
