Re: Blind Guardian's Twilight Orchestra - "Legacy of the Dark Lands" (The Orchestral Project)

Just listened to it 3 times. There were definitely some great moments. For instance, when he says "Find the key to be Free" I was overwhelmed. Goosebumps allover. Maybe something I really needed to hear right now. And it was so grand. That being said, overall I get vague Ayreon vibes. No insult inte...

Re: 2018 Remixed, Double CDs / LP

I'm guessing that the picture slip case wouldn't hold all 10 of the first set? So sick of the cash grabs to be honest man. The US "Live" album is $54.00 FOR NO REASON. I just want a cheap version of Live to finish the set. The imports are only $30. Why isn't there a "cheap" US version? Did I complet...

Well, this is somewhat annoying. These clearly don't go together.
I ordered these all from the same place, but I think these last 3 may be imports? I'm not sure. I know that the first 4 were the special Splatter versions, these last 3 were regular black.
