Did you get any new music for Christmas? If so, what? I didn't get any new Rush (didn't ask for any) but did get Traveller by Chris Stapleton and Confessin the Blues; it's an awesome compilation of blues songs put together by the Rolling Stones.
Car trip today  ( Xmas #3) is a good chance to hear Traveller; I really like it.

No, my taste in music is far too sophisticated and obscure for anyone to pinpoint what exactly to get for me lol.

That's because you're insane and you have no cool metal pals!

Bought for me at my request:

Muse - Simulation Theory (deluxe box set)
Rush - Hemidpheres (40th anniversary triple vinyl package)

Bought by me with music money I received:

Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
Kids See Ghosts - Kids See Ghosts
The Kinks - The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society
Traffic - Mr. Fantasy
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

all on iTunes, also got some money to spend at Barnes and Nobles that will more than likely go towards a record or two, perhaps Hendrix Electric Ladyland, or Beach Boys Pet Sounds.

Well, hour 3 of car trip. I bought Songs for Judy, for mr. Blues for Christmas. It's a previously unreleased  collection of some 70's Neil Young acoustic songs- 24 of them!

Me at the beginning- "These are lovely, I have missed hearing them."  Me 90 minutes later- "Help, I'm stuck in hell .  ." :lol:

I should add that Geddy has the same effect on Mr. blues, lol.

Kids See Ghosts is a new hip hop / pop duo comprised of Kanye West and Kid Cudi, so I only recommend if you're into that. The new Muse has a lot of very interesting moments though, whether or not you end up liking it.

Got a lot of stuff that's music related, if that counts. :)
Two Beatles books, a damn f***in' fine Beatles t-shirt, a weird Judas Priest Metal Works shirt, a set of Beatles guitar picks, a Motörhead cassette doormat... I'll post a picture, maybe next year... :smoke:

Does it count that I bought my self a christmas gift? If yes, then I bought the new A Farewell To Kings super deluxe box set. And I just love it! So much better then the 2112 box set! Now I am saving money for the Hemispheres box set. But ever since I got my self a dog, the money spent on records have been so much less suddenly...

No, I pretty much buy myself music when it’s released.  When I was a kid I loved getting music for Christmas because otherwise I couldn’t afford to get albums in bunches.  As an adult I’m less reliant on holidays to get new music.
