Anyone actually go out and give/receive music for Xmas this year?

Or was it just gift cards to iTunes?

I gave my sister two cds which I'm too ashamed to admit buying, and I got the 40th anniversary edition of Jethro Tull's first album - This Was, the remastered edition of Some Enchanted Evening by Blue Oyster Cult and the 40th anniversary edition of Piper At The Gates of Dawn by Pink Floyd.

I got a 25 iTunes voucher, which sucks because I don't download music.

I also got a Beethoven CD from my Dad.

I bought my dad the new Guns n' Roses album on vinyl.  I only bought it because it was vinyl and he has like 2,000 vinyl albums.  Doubt it's any good, but it's the thought that counts!

I didn't even know he'd made one - how is it?

It's good.  It's better than Alex Lifeson's solo album, cause this one sounds a bit like someone from Rush.  :P

It sounds like modern day Rush, which is okay.  Something between Test for Echo and Snakes and Arrows.

Agreed, I LOVE "My Favorite Headache". Actually, it's probably one of my top 5 favorite Rush ablums. Sure, the lyrics aren't nearly as good because Neal isn't there, but the songwriting is solid. "Still' has gotta be one of the most beautiful tunes ever written. I remember getting that back when it first came out, and I picked up Perminant Waves at the same time, what a thrill!

Alex Lifeson's solo album (Victor) is shit. It's not that it doesn't sound like Rush (that's totally okay, I mean, that's WHY you do a solo album anyway), but every song was just so damn CREEPY! There was something incredibly pedaphyilic about that album. And "Shut Up Shutting Up" has to be one of the most sexist songs ever written. The title track was just fucked up, and the starter song was... again... creepy. I don't want to hear about Alex Lifeson's hidden sexual frustrations. It left a bad taste in my mouth, and I've never been able to appreciate Alex Lifeson in the same way since. I got it as a gift, and I just had to end up selling it somewhere, because it just disturbed me being in my collection.

You're right, Victor is pretty scary.  What didn't do it for me were the vocalists.  I don't mind Edwin, I used to listen to a lot of I Mother Earth, but everyone else sucked.  A lot of the singing felt out of place.  I listented to it one time and focused on the music and I have to say, if all the tracks were instrumental...  It would have been a pretty good album actually.
