Re: Is Amazon a reliable source to buy a used Visions CD?

Generally amazon is pretty reliable and if things go wrongly, it's tracked and the seller is not really able to "escape". For second hand I generally contact the sellers prior for information as disc state etc. But tbh I buy music second hand more from shops and discogs and recently avoid amazon com...

Re: Enigma: Intermission Pt.2 opinions

Thanks for the infos Pancio ! They're indeed so silent about the work in progress, but I can understand not saying much until things are clear and sure. (So much experience with angry fans because of delays in the videogame industry... ) I was so jelly to see that some of you got meet and greet haha...

Re: Enigma: Intermission Pt.2 opinions

I love it ! Most of the songs I didn't have, except the Nemesis vinyl ones so it's a real pleasure and discovery. The three new songs are amazing, in my humble opinion, Oblivion remaining my fave, maybe because i listened to it more than 30 times before the two others. I'm more mixed feeling about t...

Re: Fright Night

It's pretty sad to admit but even after listening to Fright Night about 6 or 7 times (I generally need 2 listens), I can't seem to remember how the songs go, except Future Shock thanks to the 96 version and then I just remember the "fright night" sung in the title song. Ofc if I start listening to i...

Re: What Ever Happened to Visions?

My main problem with Fright Night is that I can't remember most of the songs, as much as I listen to it. I mostly remember Future Shock thanks to the '96 version and uh, some small bits of other songs. I think my Twilight time is still sealed, but not sure.. Dreamspace is such a great album imo thou...

Re: What do you want to hear on the next album?

I personnaly found Elysium excellent, quality and recording wise. Haven't listened to it that much on the hi-fi system but I remember we did some tests on it because we thought it sounded pretty meh but ended up with an amazing result on the next day. (On the cd and many tests on the vynil. Still am...

Re: Timo Tolkki to perform Strato/RR songs

Thank you for the infos (where did you dig all that up ? Wow). About before the Athens show yeah, aside from the fact that I heard he didn't sleep and the rehearsal seem to have started a bit too late (I m assuming from bits of dialogs I heard , nothing clear at all) so that might add the the proble...

Re: Timo Tolkki to perform Strato/RR songs

So what was his illness? Depression? Seeing him live was so sad. Like, he couldn't move or play solos, and he kept having to sit down. He is also the heaviest he has ever been from what I can tell. I feel bad for him. He mentioned somewhere being seriously sick for the last years but no details wet...

Re: Timo Tolkki to perform Strato/RR songs

You're welcome, it's good training for me, i almost never use greek anymore and I need practice :B I was sad because I'm a very empathetic person and I saw Tolkki backstage for like 3 minutes and he told me he recovered and felt much better but he was more stressed than my shy self. I at least have ...

Re: Timo Tolkki to perform Strato/RR songs

Hey, So uum, my personal view on the Athens concert is also bittersweet - for obvious reasons for those who were there - but I was not bothered by Livas' singing ? Like, at all. But maybe I'm less exigent and I'm generally focusing on the overall result. Personally I had fun during the concert. :0 M...
