    Can you say: CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

    This board makes money by selling the remasters, and lots of posts say how great they sound...

    Myself, I think the only difference is they are LOUDER.

    I always have to laugh when I read a review of something, and then at the end there is a link to AMAZON.com to buy it....

    Geez. We'rnt you in 'conspiracy theory'?

    I dunno if Brett makes any money or not, but big whoop if he does, it'll help pay for this boards existance.

    Everyone else is paid off by warner brothers to flog a few copies. *Opps* secrets out now...

    Seriously man, life isnt that complicated around here.....

    I contemplated closing this to spare you some embarassment. But to hell with it..

    Conflict of interest???

    I paid nearly $100 for the remasters and have given my opinion on them. And I don't give my opinion to try to influence anyone else's purchasing decisions, merely to hear their opinions. Pretty simple equation I think.

    Yeah, been around here for a while now, never heard of things being geared towards those means. Maybe you had the wrong idea.

    This is a Van Halen site, the remasters are Van Halen's most "recent" release. But they are rereleases of albums that a lot of us already have. Therefore, a lot of us want to hear about how they sound. And the people who have bought them already are more than willing to share that information as this is a Van Halen site. And I'm 99.9% sure they're doing it because they want to share, not because there is any money in it for this board. Your argument is like saying if I went on a Florida Marlins message board and said "wow, they played better last night than they did the night before" that I was trying to sell tickets for the Marlins. But in reality, I'd just be commenting on my perception of the play of the Marlins. And trust me, the Marlins could use more help selling tickets than Van Halen needs selling albums.

    Claudio, you know how much money I have made from partnering with Amazon for the remastered CD's?? Not a damn penny, and I am thoroughly insulted by that comment from you. How dare you. Maybe if this site is such a nuisance for a fan like you, you should not visit it anymore. Where is the amazon link a-hole?? What I have a little part of my site dedicated to selling VH stuff to fans, and that's wrong? I could care less if people buying anything, I'm not exactly raking in the bucks guy, so quiet down. Where am I pushing selling ANYTHING on this site?? Geez I mentioned it like EVERY OTHER VH site on the net when they came out, and now I'm a money grubbing jerk? Screw you man.

    I wish some of these people would just go away, I'm getting really tired of this BS. And the remastered albums sound better jackass, get a clue. And it's not just the volume. (like I am the only one say this. )
