riot act

I finally gave this a listen through my really nice headphones. HOLY SHIT LAYERS SON. When the organ kicked in during 'Love Boat Captain' I almost peed. I should try Binaural next.

And, I was just on Amazon stealing the cover image for this post, and I noticed that some private sellers on that site want between $95-270 (not a typo) for the LP. And I paid $25 for mine in 2003. Huh. One seller mentioned that this will be out of print forever, which I sincerely doubt. The Legacy series of Pearl Jam's catalog features vinyl reissues, so I think they'll get to Riot Act at some point. I just hope they at least release No Code, Live on Two Legs, and Binaural, since those are the really, really, really hard-to-get ones.

I know I haven't updated this little vanity project in awhile. I really haven't bought anything new since my last haul post. The only thing I'm looking to buy is a copy of Metallica's Black Album on vinyl.

I guess I recently bought King Crimson's 'In the Court of the Crimson King' but that is about as old as the hills, and I haven't finished listening to it yet.
