Made a run to the record store today, and I figured it'd be cool to see what everyone's purchasing and listening to. So, if you make a new purchase let us know.

I'll start...

Nice!

I've been reluctant to pick up the Pulse DVD. I really am not a Post-Waters fan. Yesterday, though, I relistened to both Momentary Lapse and Division Bell and kinda enjoyed both. I kinda semi-understood Momentary Lapse for awhile, but never have been able to let myself enjoy DB until yesterday. That said, I hate the Pulse album, so I haven't been too keen on dishing out money for the DVD.

Actually, my last purchase was a book!
" 'Comfortably Numb' - A History of 'The Wall' Pink Floyd 1978-1981" by Vernon Fitch and Richard Mahon. What a beautiful book!

I just browsed through my "recently-purchased-list" at Amazon, which reminds me of the fact that I bought the following CD's and DVD's lately:

Exposure-Limited Edition - Robert Fripp
10,000 Days - Tool
Bridge Across Forever - Transatlantic
In the Court of the Crimson King (Original Master Edition) - King Crimson
Be - Pain of Salvation
Snow - Spock's Beard
Second Live Syndrom - Riverside
Out of Myself - Riverside
S.U.S.a.R. - Indukti
Ca Ira - Roger Waters
Pulse (2 DVDs) - Pink Floyd
Deadwing (DVD Audio) - Porcupine Tree
The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash
God has failed - RPWL
Kallocain (Special Edition) - Paatos

It also reminds me of having spent too much money on music while having too little time to listen to it :rolleyes: These "Customers who bought this item also bought ..." offers seduce me to do this over and over again. :D

Some good stuff in that list. Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation, Riverside, Indukti... all great stuff.

Not so big on RPWL, though. Seemed way too derivative of Floyd. And was I the only one massively let-down by Tool's latest?

I agree, RPWL was a bit of a disappointment for me, too. But since they started as a Pink Floyd cover band, I should have known better.
Not sure about Tool yet. I have only listened to it once yet. I was quite tired at the time and maybe that's the reason why I found it to be a bit too noisy ;) But I guess because Lateralus was an almost perfect and outstanding record, any follow-up had to fall short of our expectations, at least at the first listening.
