    They're probably a band I should like but couldn't really get into them when I tried about 10-12 years ago. Maybe I heard the wrong albums, or perhaps their earlier stuff just wasn't as good.

    The "overpriced copies on Discogs" start at 10 Euros. Makes me wonder what you would consider a fair price; $5 with free shipping?
