19:29 - Ilham I didn't know Fnac was in Belgium. Not surprising actually they opened two stores in Morocco last year. I don't give them three more.
19:29 - !J.O.O.E.! Haha indeed. To be honest I just like having books around me, owning them. Just comforting knowing they're there.
19:28 - Zaphod Yeah, I know that feeling. I often buy books and look at the cover art a few times, flip some pages, read the blurb, hug it, but never actually start reading.
19:24 - !J.O.O.E.! Not since my course as much, however I often buy books with the intention of reading them and never do. I have dozens waiting for me.
19:24 - Ilham Interesting article on all this; a keynote speech from the man behind Shellac: [link]
19:23 - Zaphod Joe, I thought you didn't read? Ilham, the only record stores in Belgium these days are indie, all the major ones also went bankrupt :P well, we still have Fnac and Media Markt, but those aren't Belgian.
19:22 - flightoficarus86 Bottom line, I can't afford to pay $20 per album with all that I listen to.

Summoning The Bygones is another one of those releases that feels like it's a lot of really interesting, well-thought out components, combined together make an underwhelming experience, all things considered.
I understood that this is a re-recording of their debut plus a couple of new songs (and Dan Swano as a guest vocalist). should be interesting but I kinda wished that they would move on from their older stuff and build upon the great Sudden Death Syndrome
The drumming on this album sucked for me. boring as hell, i love the guitar playing and general atmosphere but the drumming killed it for me. you keep thinking "oh man this would be a great time for a nice black metal fill here or there" and it never comes.
