Music PurchasesSeptember 11, 2016
Got some more CDs. From top to bottom, left to right.
Both .hack//sign OSTs, the 2nd one came with a box to fit the whole OST which also includes two or three more CDs (I assume the OP/ED?), there was a paper filler to keep the 2nd OST from shaking around in the box, which I found was odd, because it suggests the OST discs were all sold separately and the 2nd disc comes with the box for you to place them all in, otherwise I'm unsure why that paper filler, why by the way lists I assume the other soundtracks in the collection, would exist.
The Pillows - Little Busters, classic album known by most as the soundtrack to that classic show, pretty used, but included some paper for their tour when they released the album which was neat.
Mass of the Fermenting Dregs - Self Titled, pretty good album, really bummed out I couldn't see them earlier this spring.
Inuyasha OP/ED collection and 3rd soundtrack, the soundtrack is whatever since it doesn't have the tracks I like, but the OP/ED collection is excellent because every Inuyasha OP and ED was great and this double disc uses the full versions instead of TV size.
Geek Sleep Sheep - Candy, Decent shoegaze album, featuring Ling Tosite Shigure's bassist, 345.
Ling Tosite Shigure - es or s, It's LTS, so it's good by default, contains some of my favourite riffs from their catalog, though overall not as good as TK's recent solo work, also an EP so it's only 5 songs long.
Swans - Swans are Dead, I actually hadn't listened to this before buying it, but seeing as I've enjoyed their albums made prior and that it's one of the highest albums rated on RYM, figured it wouldn't be a bad purchase, which was right. I've listened to the 1st disc, and half the 2nd disc, and I'd say it's pretty powerful and well recorded. Will definitely need some more listens both of this, and their studio work to see if I can appreciate this.
Swans - The Great, Annihilators, White Light from the Mouth of Infinity, Love of Life, To Be Kind, I've not listened to the middle albums, but figured since they're bundled into one deluxe edition package (The one with the rabbit), I could make my shipping value better.
My current collection, I've reached the point where it's become a bit annoying choosing how to display. Placed normally, there is exactly enough room at the top to have Haruka's base but not enough for Futaki, which looks weird if I place her something elsewhere because the shelf is the best place to place her base, what with the railing. I have two other CD racks I tried using but they don't accept non jewel cases. In the end, I'll have to settle for stacking them until I find a new shelf. One good thing is that it's a lot easier to read their titles, though aesthetically, it's not as clean as just having in one row, I also wonder about whether the albums at the bottom will crack or not.
