Impressive stuff. They still make casettes?

yes, actually there's somewhat of a revival going on with cassettes. But nowadays the cassette version of albums and such are extremely limited to 100, 200 copies, that's it.

Is this revival happening because they sound more "natural" than CDs, or because today only a few people have casette players, so it's more special?

Dreadrealm 2.0
Bought 2 albums today that I really should've bought years ago, but poorness and no money and other bullshit excuses...

Spock's Beard - Snow (2002). Simply one of the best prog concept albums ever released. Quite accessible in spite of its length and almost flawlessly blends storytelling and songwriting. It's fun at points, funny at points, sad and epic at other points. Also, as far as tearjerker endings go, Steven Wilson's saddest stuff has got nothing on this album, precisely bc this album isn't trying to be emotional, it just is.

Riverside - Out Of Myself (2003). Their debut, their greatest masterpiece still. Unlike with the successor Second Life Syndrome, listening to this album isn't about waiting for the amazing moments, it's pretty much amazing all the way through. Has got to be one of the absolute best prog debuts of all time.

Can't recommend either album enough to prog fans, must-haves, absolutely.

Last actual metal album I acquired was Eclipse by Amorphis, but I've got several non-metal albums, including The Fragile by NIN and Appeal to Reason by Rise Against.
