First time seeing this. I almost thought someone reuploaded the music videos, but this appears to be different footage.

Ohh that went for an exceptionally good price. I saw one in Japan on my trip for like 20 bucks I think and was considering it.

So, Painkiller will appreciate this, but I'm playing the Early Days CD in Windows Media Player, and track six, which is written in English everywhere on the album and is called Starlit Night, is coming up as [Untranslated]. Tongue

I spend too much on CDs to have a decent rig to play them on! Big Grin

But, Linux is free! All hail the mighty FLAC.

Nah, I'm just poking your leg. I was making a reference to the use of Windows itself. Laugh

I've finally started checking out those later Akira Kajiyama albums.

The album that he did with Takenori Shimoyama is fucking awesome, to say the least. I think Shimoyama's vocal style improved with time, because he does make himself very difficult to listen to on some of the early Double Dealer albums. His vocals evened out by 2005 for me. Into the Deep could easily be considered the lost Double Dealer album, despite not involving Norifumi Shima.

The first Goldbrick album isn't too bad. It's more hard rock at times, but "Striking My Heart" really sets the mood for the album. It's nice that Yukio Morikawa still sang in bands after his departure from Anthem circa 1992.



Lastly, those two compilation albums of Kajiyama demo recordings are finally in my collection. The first one is more to my liking, although the songs with vocal parts aren't as pleasing to hear, due to his inability to sing whatsoever. I get that these were all demoed in the mid-1980s as a then-aspiring young guitarist doing everything by himself, but it's hard to unhear "Back to the Memory" with a monotone vocalist. Fortunately, Eiji Fukagawa saved it. Smile
