    Question on the so-called "warmth" of newer vinyl...

    From what I've heard, an all digital recording can still sound flat and sterile on lp. From what I've heard, several of Rush's 80's lp suffer from this.

    Rush Concerts on DVD coming in 2002

    I think ESL was shot on video, not film, so that's why it looks so bad. I'm not sure about GUP. ASOH was filmed, I think. It should look good in high-def.

    Van Halen: Here we go again! (tour on again!)

    Mike played NO bass on VHIII, Eddie played it all. Mike also did no BGVs on VHIII. Eddie also played drums on several tracks. It's basically an EVH solo album. Mike will be sorely missed (although I won't miss his cheesy bass "solo").

    Aaron, try using DVD Audio Extractor. It seems to be able to extract 24/96 files. It is fully functional for 30 days. It's much easier than the method I've been using.

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    I pulled the 24/96 files off the disc. I had a lot more trouble with this disc than I did the Porcupine Tree dvd-audio discs I own. The files are just as compressed as the cd. Some folks over at hoffman's site claim the lp sounds less compressed. I've already bought this album twice. I just...

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    Pulling 16 bit audio off of a dvd video is pretty easy. There are several free programs out that can do that. To pull off 24 bit audio, it's a bit trickier. You have to demux the pcm from the vob files as a raw file. You then have to switch the bytes around to get a correct wav file. It can be...

    Wow, Scott. I never dreamed wally world would have the MVI. I did see the Linkin Park MVI, so I guess wonders never cease.

    Over at hoffman's site, someone said the multi-channel mix was extremely loud. Anyone else notice this?

    If you could only put one (1) BEATLES song on your iPod, which would it be?

    Since I'm the only person on the planet that isn't a beatles fan, I wouldn't put any of their songs on there. Now the Ruttles, that would be hard to choose...

    Any Joe Bonamassa Fans ?

    I found one of his "So It's Like That..." cds in this huge bin of cds at WalMart for a dollar. I had heard of him, so I took a chance. It's a good cd. I'd like to get more of his stuff. I was disappointed to find out that the cd came with a live dvd in the retail versions. I was bummed, but I...

    Albums that you'd like to be covered in the "Classic Albums" DVD Series

    Van Halen: 1984 To hear about the crazy drugs/drinking and the leaving/firing of DLR. To hear how Eddie recorded "Top Jimmy" with a guitar that could have each string panned L/R in the stereo spectrum (created by Steve Ripley). To hear about how "Hot For Teacher" was recorded, from the Harley...

    Any new Classic Albums DVDs coming soon?

    Yes, I saw the dvd for "Hysteria" and it had some dvd sampler with it. Last night I was there and saw the U2 dvd, as well as the one for "Who's Next".

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    I agree, I never thought there would be high res surround. I had hoped I would be wrong, but they would have mentioned if that was the case. There are probably two reasons why they didn't do a high res surround track. 1. To keep the disc single layer. 2. The cost of royalties for using MLP...

    I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this, but last night at walmart I saw the MVI release for Linkin Park, which was to come out with the new Rush MVI dvd. The box for the Linkin Park disc said it was a cd/dvd package. That was something I hadn't heard at all about the rush package. It listed...

    DVD-A Issues?

    Some players operate in dvd-audio mode or dvd-video mode and you have to tell it to switch between modes. If you switch the mode, then you can see the menus for the dvd-audio side of the disc.

    New Porcupine Tree album discussion

    Having spun this a couple of times, it doesn't seem to be the standout album that the last two were. I liked those pretty quickly, maybe this will grow on me. I noticed that the vocals are a bit buried. Maybe Steven wanted it that way.

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    "To keep things interesting, though, [Neil] promises Rush feels somewhat "liberated" from its catalogue after doing a pure greatest-hits tour three years ago, and will this time be honing in on new material and "old songs that we haven't played for years or that we've never played." One such gem...

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    I heard "Far Cry" for the first time on the radio last night. Wow, did it sound bad. Flat and lifeless. The guitars were non existant, the drums sounded like cardboard. Geddy's voice and his bass sound ok, but that's it. Compression really ruins it for all of us. Why can't the artists and labels...

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    This link talks about the group almost breaking up around the time of Grace Under Pressure. Does anyone know anything about that? I have never heard that. I know they had some producer trouble for GUP (they went through a couple, I think), but that was I had heard.

    At 1:40 into the song, I hear a sound effect that could sound like clipping. Is that the sound you hear? I also hear it at 4:40.

    Or perhaps Neil is remembering when it was recorded, not released. :)

    '79 would be something off "Permanent Waves", right? They did "Natural Science" on the Vapor Trails tour, so what does that leave? I hope no one is holding out for "The Camera Eye".

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    My only problem is that I feel Neil is equating radical Islamics with Christianity, and lumping them together in the same category. However you may feel about christians and the fact that someone might knock on your door and invite you to a church, I don't think that rises to the level of...

    Rush: "Snakes and Arrows" discussion

    The production is very good. I'm glad Nick asked Alex to go back to some of his older amps. I don't like the sound of the amps he was using, they sounded too thick and muddy, cutting into Geddy's space. The album is compressed, but less so than the last two. Feedback, even though not as bad as...
