Transatlantic is best prog. Portnoy finally doing something useful with his talent.
Digging: Matana Roberts - COIN COIN Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres
I concur; totally thrilled to hear these guys are writing more music together.
Well, alright. I look forward to covering this.
Still gotta check these guys out. Where to start?
Whirlwind, totally looking foward to this album. Portnoy is brilliant in this band
Haven't really checked these guys out, but they're supposed to be really good. Their cover of Genesis's "Return of the Giant Hogweed" is phenomenal.
Digging: Women - Public Strain
Portnoys drums sound at their very best on Whirlwind, plus he grooves on that record, much more emotive playing than in recent memory from him.
Digging: Tim Bowness - Abandoned Dancehall Dreams
Just started listening to Whirlwind, it's sounds all amazing but I wish the vocals would come in sometime soon.
The instrumental section of the title track is incredible, the vocals will come soon enough, (spoiler alert) all 4 of them :D
Band is great. Finally some good news.
Digging: Daniel Amos - Darn Floor - Big Bite
Well as long as they don't rush it... Despite being a prog band I think they could use some focus of their material. Just because they can fill up a CD doesn't mean they should, The Whirlwind was about 30 minutes too long.
With MP, Roine Stolt and Neal Morse on board you know yuo can expect every bit of the CD to be filled
Good news. Full of promising.
