I haven't really listened to the albums after Tightly Unwound but I always really like the albums prior to the latter mentioned.
Not the Pineapple I used to like. ;)
Just try 'Your Wilderness', really great 8).

Bought the Soup album 'Remedies'. Another band from Norway that impressed me *horns*.

Bought the The Pineapple Thief album 'Dissolution' last Friday. I'm impressed.

Next buy will be the new Riverside album 'Wasteland' at the end of September *horns*,

It's been a while since I last mentioned my purchased cd's.

So since August I've bought the following:
Roine Stolt - "Manifesto Of An Alchemist"
Argos - "Unidentified Dying Objects"
Discipline - "To Shatter All Accords"
Damanek - "In Flight"
Southern Empire - "Civilisation"
Glass Hammer - "Chronomonaut"
Peter Pan - "Days"
Enchant - "A Dream Imagined..." boxset with all Enchant albums
Haken - "Vector"
Redemption - "Long Night's Journey Into Day"
Michael Romeo - "War Of The World, Part 1"
Gungfly - "Rumbling Box" boxset with all of Rikard Sjöblom's Gungfly albums but the last two

Probably forgetting a few. This might seem a lot, but it's from almost half a year and they were mostly at very acceptable prices.
OK, it's still a lot and I'm defending myself...

And later today I expect to get Jean Michel Jarre's "Equinoxe Infinity" which I already heard on Spotify and like a lot! Anyone here who heard it?

It is a fact now, just purchased it @ my local record shop.
Unfortunately my local record shop 'Blue Music Kampen' will close the doors in a few weeks due to less sales. This evening his loyal customers could buy cd's at 40% discount. I purchased 3 albums:

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon 8)
Silhouette - Beyond The Seventh Wave (Dutch neo prog band)
Neal Morse - Sola Scriptura (Had only a burned copy, but love this album so much that it was about time that I bought it  ::) ;))

The owner of the store will refurbish his website. Fortunately I'll still be able to order albums from him and pick it up at his home. I will keep on supporting him. But it was so much fun to search through all those cd's, you'll recognise it. So I'm sad, both for him and for myself :-\/

It seems I haven't posted in this thread for four months...

I haven't been buying much physical music lately, mostly exploring on Spotify. But my latest physical purchases are:

- Hans Lundin - "The Solo Years (1982-1989)" boxset
Interesting music. Indeed very much 80's inspired. There's a typical Kaipa sound to it though. Perfect timing, releasing this boxset with this 80's revival going on.
- Jordan Rudess - "Wired For Madness"
I listened to this on Spotify and was not expecting to like it so much. Well done Jordan!
- Dream Theater - "Distance Over Time"
I feel somewhat obliged to buy this. It's their best album since Mangini took over from Portnoy. But it's still not on the same level as their peak (at least what I consider their peak: "Scenes..." up till "Octavarium")

There's still many things on my wish list. But I'm trying to change my ways, and only buy what I really really really like. Especially trying to discover new music and support bands that need it most.

Good call. I'm a bit more careful as well. Lonely Robot was autobuy and so was Bjørn Riis - A Storm Is Coming, which I bought today. When I watch the upcoming releases on Progwereld.org, I don't see releases I will certainly buy. Not even Neal Morse ::). Heard a new track from the upcoming musical 'Jesus Christ: The Exorsist' and didn't like it at all ... But there are lots of albums from the past in my wishlist for times like this with not so interesting upcoming releases. And I will invest time into new bands with positive reviews. Music rules *horns*

Red Sun Rising - Polyester Zeal

Folks, if I ever made a recommendation, this is definitely one. This band appeared in one of the "made for you" playlists on Spotify, with the track "The Otherside". I starred it cos I liked it. Like 3 months ago or so. Found the time around Easter to scroll through my library, and... man, did this album blow my mind.

PS: the second album is not half as good. I can hear that they were trying to stick to their style of making music, but somehow it's not that "brilliant"... to me, that is...

Just bought Huis - Abandoned. Listened to the album several times on Spotify and it's great 8). Besides, I do own their first two albums, this one can't be missed in my collection ;D.
