Scores from last months, no reissues. Cities is the Metal Masters MLP with superior sound compared to the LP.

got the same one. I bought it long time ago without really caring wchich of the "old" versions I get. turns out that only the slimline pressing is earlier, but its in this crappy case so it doesn't count :) I like those megaforce CDs, they look so vintage.

Yup. I like this one. Ideally I would go for the FEMS pressing but that is expensive as hell. So I have this Megaforce one for Melissa and a perfect NM FEMS one (with OBI) for Oath.

And it sounds great too. No remastered crap with this one.

you have to really like japaneese CDs because other than that I don't understand what is so appealing about the FEMS pressing. I much prefer the version I have.

And as for "Don't Break ..." I actually do favor a japaneese press, but the one made for US Combat :)

Just a soft spot for FEMS pressings. Call it personal preference. I agree there is nothing special about most of them (though I prefer the FEMS pressing of Satan's Court In The Act over all others). I just like them for some reason :D

"Don't Break..." FEMS pressing sounds and looks good - and this all that matters to me. It being a FEMS one is just a bonus :)

Is the B-side of that Blackout record really called '(She's Got A) Mustache!' ?
:shock:
Hope the song's as good as the title.

It's uneventful hard rock, but with rather funny lyrics.
Laugh at you in ecstasy, wallow in the gore.
Blast you with their twisted minds, behold the Dogs Of War.

Yes, the Blackout single is quite boring soft typical US Glam stuff in the L.A. style. Forgettable ...

Then why did you buy it?

Blind shot, I didn't know it and it was cheap so why not trying my luck?
I didn't know and have never seen the Rain single above either and it was a direct hit. :wink:

Damn, I'm envious, would love to have that Pettypew!
What is the one below the Breeze 7", and the one right to Ricochet?
