This is probably the main reason for many to believe that vinyl is coming back for us electronic music lovers in Europe too. However we do not really profit from the boom of vinyl album-sales in the USA, because the largest part of North Americans usually tends to listen to different genres such as rock, alternative, hip hop and the likes. The European market is a completely different thing anyway, and the US-sales do not really concern us much.
Compared to rock and similar styles that currently enjoy increasing vinyl LP-sales in the USA, electronic music looks like nothing but a tiny niche-market. However genres like for example tekkno have constantly brought out new vinyl-releases, regardless of any mainstream-trends. This persistant, high output went on until the conquest of DVS digital vinyl systems for DJ-usage started.
Thanks to affordable digital vinyl systems like for e. This has eliminated the need to buy vinyl-records for DJing — and it is the DJs who have always formed the main-market for electronic music recordings.
Only a small part of clubbers actually spend their hard-earned money on vinyls, thus leaving more cash on festivals, raves and club-events. Yes, the boom of vinyl-sales in the USA is real of course, but it is thanks to listeners who purchase LPs which are mainly re-releases of mainstream-albums on vinyl-records. Vinyl-sales in the electronic music scene in Europe and beyond however mostly depend on purchases by DJs and not the average, general listener who tend to rather spend cash on clubbing than on vinyl-records.
It is very cool to see that mainstream-listeners in the USA start to rediscover a format that has been the main-medium for the electronic music scene ever since the start, but there is very little positive effect on our local tekkno-scene coming from the US-sales.
Even if the average tekkno-DJ may love vinyl-records, they could not care less about alternative rock records for instance. And according to Amazon. Great for them, but of no concern for fans of electronic sounds, and hence this is no criteria that lets me rejoice over a rise in record-sales. I am a die hard danzig fan, but if you let yourself miss out on graves's trippy vocals you're a fool.
Great Album from the Graves era not as hokey as Famous monsters and a bit harder than some of their other stuff. Really like this album. Happy to now have on vinyl. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This was the second album I heard from the Michale Graves era of the misfits, and once again I loved it, the best tracks are american psycho and speak of the devil.
This album is considerably heavier than both the danzig era and famous monsters, in fact the verses on the title sound like something off earth ad. The guitars sound heavier, and graves' vocals sound great and melodical, worth the money, its not as good as danzigs stuff, but it's still very good. Report abuse. Not their best album but there's a few good songs on it.
The Misfits. What you buy is what you get. No more or no more than expected from The Misfits. I would recommend this CD to any fans Michael Graves' first album with the misfits is fantastic! Well recorded music and beautiful, haunting vocals will make this a piece of rock history. Definitely in my top ten favourite albums! Great album. There's a problem loading this menu right now.

Hero succeeds in where Jesus Christ Superstar fails is including the resurrection, but given that Jesus Christ Superstar questions whether the Messiah is truly God or not, it's most likely intentional that it ends at the crucifixion.
Overall, it's an excellent modern-day rock opera that deserves a bit more press and praise than it received during the time it was released. This is really a great cd. The songs lead into one another just as they should if it's truly an opera. I can't help but find the name interesting as when one sees words such as "opera" and "rock opera" it conjures up certain images.
The great thing about this cd is that the songs can be listened to and enjoyed inidividually or together. I honestly am not sure why this cd has gotten mixed reviews other than the fact that the title of rock opera may have given some people some sort of expectation of what it should be. I encourage everyone interested in this to give it a try - I was certainly not disappointed and I don't think you will be either. This music is very interesting; it includes several different genres, keeping the listener guessing about the next song.
All in all, this album is very good. There are a couple of songs that could have been done better, but taken as a whole, this CD is great. The songs themselves are excellent, and the Christian message is uplifting. Even though I never had the privilege of seeing the performance, I still greatly enjoy the content.
I would definitely recommend this CD. My family went to see a local production of thus musical and our kids absolutely loved it. Naturally they wanted to know where we might find the music so they could listen to it at home. Glad I was able to find a new copy at a reasonable price, but it's a shame they don't appear to be in production any longer, or if they are, not commercially available through any of the sources I would expect to include the main production's own website.
Regardless, we all enjoy the music and it truly is "the greatest story ever told. Great story telling. Retrieved November 20, Nonesuch Records. Retrieved April 7, December 31, Retrieved February 25, February 7, The Telegraph.
