Re: The official My Vinyl Solution thread...

So the next installment of MVS is written, but due to my recent bout with a pretty wicked cold, I haven't been able to get it posted. It's coming... soon...

Does the world need a new Van Halen album?

Okay, so we've established that A Different Kind of Truth is a legitimately good album. I'm enjoying listening to it as I write this. But I have to ask, to what end? It just seems to me that this album exists outside of the space-time continuum, weirdly disconnected from any appropriate cultural con...

Um, no.
