  • Insurrection Ah, well I hope you do. As you can imagine its not that great but its not their worst by a long shot imo.
    June 30 04:59 PM
  • Insurrection Hey, are you going to review the new Yes?
    June 30 04:53 PM
  • Jethro42 Once again, you made a big difference on the review. You know how to embellish sentences with your professionalism. Thanks for all. Cheers mate!
    May 14 11:57 AM
  • Jethro42 What a coincidence, I have to go away too so no worries. It's better to end on a good note than too fast and at the last minute.
    May 8 05:03 PM
  • dannyboy89 In any case, I wanted to say that I think The Doors get too little discussion on the site, given how relevant they were to music and all.
    May 3 01:24 PM
  • dannyboy89 I mean, I love Pearl Jam about as much as you do, and we both love classic rock (although your knowledge by far exceeds mine), but I guess we have different interests and reasons why we listen to the music.
    May 3 12:41 AM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, you seem to like everything. We seem to have differing views on what makes music interesting, although we also seem to have similar tastes. I just find it weird to tell the truth.
    May 2 09:42 PM
  • Jethro42 That's some good news. I'm looking forward to that. omg, when I see all these Yes albums being rated, it makes me realize I still have some of them to listen to. Out of these I only have Keystudio, Yesstory, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe and Yesterdays.
    May 1 12:25 PM
  • Jethro42 I was hoping that it simply remained in oblivion. So I'm stoked about this seeing the day. In your time of course, SuperNag!
    April 23 05:15 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag! Hope everything goes well for you. I was asking myself, do you still have the Moody Blues review. If yes, do you intend to cover it sooner or later?
    April 23 04:57 PM
  • dannyboy89 Is there any band/artist that you despise?
    April 20 04:55 PM
  • Metalstyles Yeah, though I don't casually sputnik often anymore either. My sputniking went way down when I went into university two years ago, and nowadays I work at Estonia's last record store. I still check in quite regularly, but it's often a brief look and not much more. I do still review when possible, but my voluntary music consumption has fallen off due to a lack of time. With a job, friends and other hobbies, 24 hours in a day just isn't enough anymore and music often pulls the short straw :(
    March 23 06:42 PM
  • Metalstyles NAG! Maybe I haven't been looking carefully enough, but I haven't seen your name pop up in a looooooong time. How you been, man?
    March 23 06:07 PM
  • Voivod Well I added the band to sputnik, but I haven't listened to the Mother Turtle album that much so as to rate it. I forgot to go back to the album since that time, but I thought it would be great to inform you and Jethro about it, since you are both very fond of this sound.
    March 12 02:26 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I've prob never discussed this with you, but your taste is quite similar to mine. Although I'm not a big fan of Dream Theater or Guns N' Roses.
    February 21 01:10 PM
  • JamieTwort Yeah, wasn't sure I'd make it with only 24 reviews in 4 years but I intend to write more regularly this year. Seems crazy to me that you've never been promoted.
    February 11 11:59 AM
  • Jethro42 When I told you about my hesitation between Eloy and The Moodies, I had in fact already started with the latter, that's why it appears to be quick. As for the review, do it in your time.
    February 3 11:07 AM
  • Jethro42 In Search of the Lost Chord is all yours. Rating = 4/5
    February 1 09:54 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag! What I intend to do next is rather The Moody Blues - In Search of the Lost Chord or Eloy - Silent Cries and Mighty Echoes. I need to re-listen to the latter to see if my rating is fair enough.
    January 30 03:50 PM
  • dannyboy89 Also dude, I disagree with you on Sin After Sin: it's a solid 4.5 for me, the only weak moment being the "Let Us Prey" section; but we can't all agree. Where does it rank in the Priest discog for you?
    January 22 09:27 PM
  • Jethro42 I'll be there to receive it. Cheers!
    January 22 02:18 PM
  • Frippertronics Understood. Cheers
    January 20 02:21 PM
  • Frippertronics would you like a recommendation? if so, check out The Seed and the Sower and/or the debut album. I can provide download links as well.
    January 20 02:10 PM
  • Frippertronics Hey man, if you like The Enid, I have a review for their third album recently posted. Decent prog album though.
    January 20 02:07 PM
  • dannyboy89 I made a list of Priest songs and would like you to check it out. It was the last one I made.
    January 17 02:12 PM
  • Jethro42 That's nice. I can't wait.
    January 17 01:34 PM
  • Jethro42 Do you intend to do the latest review ''Le Orme - Uomo di Pezza'' ?
    January 7 05:54 PM
  • dannyboy89 Out of curiosity, why don't you have any Megadeth album 5'd?
    January 7 05:25 PM
  • rockandmetaljunkie gelukkig nieuwjaar Matthijs, I send you my best wishes
    December 31 02:17 PM
  • dannyboy89 Well, since you're Dutch, I was a bit curious. I'm intrigued by your country's culture.Have you been in Amsterdam?
    December 27 12:26 PM
  • dannyboy89 Do you speak Frisian, by any chance?
    December 27 12:13 AM
  • dannyboy89 Also, I see TSMS is your fave Porcupine Tree album.
    December 18 09:45 PM
  • dannyboy89 I'll admit that it isn't easy to do proper discography reviews, so I can understand why you'd be worn out by them. All the same, I congratulate you for finishing up with Genesis.
    December 18 09:37 PM
  • Jethro42 It must be hard to go through a negative review, especially a Genesis one. Congrats in advance!
    December 17 12:41 PM
  • dannyboy89 I see you've rated a lot of Tim Buckley, what kind of music does he play?
    December 13 08:22 PM
  • Jethro42 It's now on the map. I feel curious you're not in the game.
    December 13 03:46 PM
  • Jethro42 I'm about to finish my Peter Hammill' review. I thought to do it under my account. It would allow you to breathe a little more.
    December 13 11:14 AM
  • Jethro42 So, how does it go for your review? I'm currently completing another one myself. It's Peter Hammill's The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage.
    December 10 02:10 PM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJlhSU6_HPI, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEjfiBWPHmA
    December 9 05:32 AM
  • dannyboy89 dissappointing*.
    December 6 10:11 PM
  • dannyboy89 I've come to realize that JP has plenty of great openers: Painkiller, The Hellion, Freewheel Burning, Heading Out to the Highway, Delivering the Goods and, though you may disagree, Turbo Lover. A pity those openers don't always lead into consistent albums.I've definitely come to appreciate JP's discography more these days, although RID and PoE are rather dissapointing.
    December 6 10:08 PM
  • Jethro42 Don't give up. The largest part is done.
    November 24 08:30 PM
  • Jethro42 And bravo! Mission accomplished!
    November 19 01:50 PM
  • Jethro42 The obligatory album to go on through in order to complete that mammoth discog. It should not be fun, but you have to do it. Courage! ;)
    November 19 01:40 PM
  • Jethro42 As usual I wonder if my review is too long, too repetitive or not well structured. Well, take the freedom to edit whatever you want. And yet, finally, the 30th ProgJect review is about to see the day. Cigarzzz !!!And take note that you still receive it all in 2 different formats. Take what's best for you. I also apologize about the words that look too small. Cheers!
    November 18 09:22 PM
  • Jethro42 My choice fell on Le Orme (Uomo di Pezza) so to complete the Italian prog' big three.
    November 17 05:23 PM
  • Jethro42 I plan to do another one of ours. I just can't decide which one yet. I hesitate between Le Orme, Peter Hammill or Arena, among others. To be continued...
    November 16 11:37 AM
  • Voivod Nag this is prog rock from a band residing in my hometown, I think it's worth your attention, let me know what you think like whenever - http://motherturtleband.bandcamp.com/album/mother-turtle
    October 20 06:48 PM
  • Voivod Nag, the Argus album is streaming from bandcamp - http://cruzdelsurmusic.bandcamp.com/album/beyond-the-martyrs
    October 9 11:25 AM
  • dannyboy89 I see you're rating some live stuff.
    September 26 02:01 AM
  • Willie I don't know. Why not? ;)
    September 15 04:01 PM
  • dannyboy89 I just wanted to say that I was a bit frustrated because I didn't think I'd fit in with all the music fans on this site. I love music, but I've been somewhat slow in truly appreciating it. I also guess I tried too hard to equal you as a reviewer. And I apologize for that. And I guess I bit off more than I could chew. I learned from you that hearing music is an art in itself, and I thank you for it.
    September 12 04:09 PM
  • Permabanned did you hear it yet
    September 7 12:17 AM
  • Permabanned necrophagia - season of the dead
    August 30 03:10 PM
  • OmairSh Ah theres the prog guru :D. Going through the Tull discog I see p/
    August 17 10:11 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag. I just re-read the Maxophone review and I have to tell you bravo. I'm happy with the result me too, really. Too bad it barely reached 2 pages, but what can we expect from that obscure (but quality) album. To maintain a good amount of readers, in the future, I'll keep in mind to review prog bands that are better known.
    August 12 08:57 PM
  • Voivod Saw your comment on that Anthrax album, you can see them live tomorrow at the Bloodstock Open Air - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news/28184/Bloodstock-Open-Air-live-stream/
    August 10 02:23 PM
  • danielcardoso Thanks man, i already fixed that mistake.
    July 28 02:33 PM
  • danielcardoso Pretty much, just have one doubt: do i need a picture of the album cover?
    July 28 09:58 AM
  • Jethro42 It's alright with me, mate. Have a good summer time!
    July 22 02:05 PM
  • Permabanned dude what do you honestly hate about heretic so much
    July 22 01:45 PM
  • Jethro42 And sorry if it's a bit redundant. As usual, you can abbreviate and edit as much as you want.
    July 22 12:07 PM
  • Jethro42 Maxophone is all yours, Nag. Once again, I used a poor imitation of Word Pad and it wasn't easy to do. I'll try to exchange for the true model asap. Until then, keep on P/
    July 22 11:59 AM
  • Permabanned start with gardens of grief honestly and then just work your way up to WFIKTBD and then don't even both with the rest
    July 21 09:18 PM
  • Permabanned dude for real you gotta man i mean their first EP and 2 studio albums are lifechanging displays of psychotic dark psychedelic metal
    July 21 07:40 AM
  • Permabanned bro have you heard at the gates - the red in the sky is ours??
    July 21 07:34 AM
  • Jethro42 Not easy to follow an album like X
    July 15 06:02 PM
  • Jethro42 No, I havent heard a single note off of it. I must correct it.
    July 15 04:48 PM
  • Jethro42 What's up Nag, mate? Glad to hear that you're about to finish one of the most ambitious discog ever. I'm looking forward to read it. I was myself thinking about putting up another ProgJect. I just cant decide which one among Triumvirat (we covered one of them), The Watch (very Genesis like) or Maxophone (One shot winner Italian prog). I now have a new computer, so let's celebrate!
    July 14 06:39 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey Matthijs. First of all, I'm sorry I'm crowding your shoutbox ;DI just wanna ask you something: will you review Now What?! and 13?
    July 11 10:46 AM
  • danielcardoso At least, I think it's better than "We Can't Dance"...
    July 2 02:58 PM
  • danielcardoso By the way, I think "Calling All Stations" is very overlooked, dont you think?I mean, it's average, but it still has a few good tracks. The title track is awesome...
    July 2 02:16 PM
  • danielcardoso Alright dude, wish you luck then.
    July 2 02:15 PM
  • danielcardoso aren't you gonna finish genesis' discography?
    July 2 01:33 PM
  • oltnabrick How are you not staff yet?
    June 29 09:45 PM
  • dannyboy89 Is songwriting important to you when evaluating an album?
    June 28 12:05 AM
  • OmairSh How are you not staff yet?
    June 21 12:45 PM
  • danielcardoso Thanks Nagrarok, you've helped me out here.
    June 21 12:14 PM
  • danielcardoso Hey Nagrarok, I was reading your Forbidden review and i just have a quick question, man: how do you give an album an 0,5 rating? Thanks.
    June 21 08:05 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Thank you man.
    June 20 08:19 AM
  • rockandmetaljunkie Hey Matthijs how are you ? Listen, I'll review Cathedral's entire discography, is there something specific I must keep in mind ? You have done entire discographies in the past, so can you give me a piece of advice ?
    June 20 04:07 AM
  • dannyboy89 Undoubtedly, although in my opinion SG's Superunknown comes close. But yes, Ten has a perfect opener, a perfect closer, and is easily the band's most emotional record. Vs. is great as well, and I certainly appreciate it a lot more now than in the past. It also opens and closes perfectly.
    June 16 01:16 AM
  • dannyboy89 *sort of like
    June 15 02:19 AM
  • dannyboy89 See you've been digging Uriah Heep, I take it they were sorof like "the unspoken 4th member" of the British Hard Rock Trinity.I've been revisiting the PJ discog, and I must say I enjoy it a lot more thanks to your advice (though it was ILJ who finally got me thinking). It's impressive how one's view of things can change with repetition.
    June 15 02:17 AM
  • dannyboy89 I gave some thought to what you said, and you have a point. There are quite afe few albums that I wouldn't bother much to revisit, but I might want to hear again quite a few.On another note, I want to say that I admire your reviewing skills.
    June 12 11:01 PM
  • ViperAces oh right, forget youre at it. do it if you find time though, its suprisingly one of their best
    June 8 08:24 AM
  • ViperAces are you going to review the new sabbath? seing as your discog is now incomplete and all...
    June 8 07:57 AM
  • greg84 Cool. I'm happy how this interview turned out.
    May 14 04:54 PM
  • greg84 Are you one of the few chosen people who read the interview? Yes, I've liked them since I heard their debut last year. It even made my top20 last year.
    May 14 04:41 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey what's up Nag! For Anthony Phillips, I think I found it on Isohunt. If not, try Pirate Bay.
    May 4 06:58 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, I personally consider Nirvana to be overrated next to those three. Nevermind is an okay album, but imo the other bands had better musicianship. Although Dave Grohl is a very good drummer.
    April 29 12:47 AM
  • dannyboy89 Do you like all of the Grunge Big 4 equally (I prefer Pearl Jam, followed by SG and AIC)? And, on another note, which Hawkwind album have you liked the most?
    April 28 11:45 AM
  • dannyboy89 Would you say that the 70's are your favourite musical era?
    March 31 10:34 PM
  • dannyboy89 You once said in a post that you didn't like the Beatles. What made you change your mind? And do you like the Rolling Stones?
    March 31 04:15 PM
  • dannyboy89 I imagined you did. You seem to be quite fond of both prog and metal. Do you play any instrument?
    March 28 12:41 PM
  • dannyboy89 Do you play bass, by any chance?
    March 28 11:59 AM
  • BigHans Yeah for sure. I mean there are a few clunkers in their discog, and its quite large, but band rules all in all.
    March 15 01:40 PM
  • Jethro42 Excellent! There's only one thing though; I couldnt catch up the review if you send it between noon and 3 o'clock (your 6 and 9 o'clock) because I will be on the road. So would it be possible for you to put it on the map before or after these hours? Thanks!
    February 16 09:44 AM
  • Jethro42 I'm obviously looking forward to it, mate. Priorities first, of course.
    February 15 04:07 PM
  • Jethro42 How is it going with Renaissance? Not to busy with it?
    February 15 03:40 PM
  • dannyboy89 I see you've been digging Caravan. Which of their records has pleased you most?
    February 15 12:45 PM
  • Jethro42 Your time is mine, mate. Cheers!
    February 13 04:59 PM
  • Jethro42 Turn of the Cards is all yours, Nag. Freedom to you if you want to shorten it, or to do any modification you feel you have to do. Cheers to our ProgJect!
    February 12 08:35 PM
  • Voivod I meant in writing a review for Phobos
    February 12 07:59 AM
  • Voivod I will review Phobos i due time. Right now, My mind is messed up because of whole lotta work plus I randomly listen to many stuff and I can't focus on anything, as soon as I get back in shape, I will review it. That's a promise. You can write a review yourself, you know, I mean you know how it goes ;-)
    February 12 07:59 AM
  • Jethro42 Hi Nag! I'm currently trying to put together Renaissance's 'Turn of the Cards' and I asked myself if you could take some of your time to help me for that ProgJect. If ever you couldnt, I would do it under my own account, so feel free with it. Cheers mate!
    February 11 08:23 PM
  • dannyboy89 Who do you think can do the Kansas discog? It's a pretty long haul...
    February 10 03:40 PM
  • dannyboy89 Interesting enough. Might check it out one of these days.
    February 10 03:20 PM
  • dannyboy89 BTW, who's Nick Drake?
    February 9 05:51 PM
  • dannyboy89 Is sonictheplumber still active in Sputnik?
    February 9 12:34 AM
  • Jethro42 I'm sure that old thread deserves to be bumped ;) So yes.
    January 24 02:10 PM
  • Jethro42 I barely edited my first comment on your review, js. I'm soon gonna read your other one, their eponymous album.
    January 24 02:00 PM
  • Jethro42 Ah! That's good to see you back at the writing, Nag. Well I missed your review cos I just left the hospital for a throat surgery. It was successfully accomplished. Now I have the time to read whatever you put on. Happy New Year to you too, mate.
    January 24 10:57 AM

    December 14 11:02 AM
  • greg84 ah and the deadline is today
    December 14 06:04 AM
  • greg84 You have to vote for them right now man. They really need your vote. Otherwise, they may not make it to the top 50. Trust me. I know something about it.
    December 14 05:57 AM
  • greg84 Hey Nag, don't forget to vote in the users' list. It so happens that one album especially needs your endorsement (tip: you're digging it atm)
    December 14 05:13 AM
  • Metalstyles Lucky me then. I myself am so busy with university this year that I am forced to skip the annual "listen to everything you missed this year!" spree. As sad as it is, I need to set my priorities straight haha.
    December 12 06:43 PM
  • Metalstyles Hey man, I was just going through some of my old reviews to fix a few things here and there and I noticed how your token saying in the comments section was "I wish you'd review something I could check out" haha. Well, you should look into my latest review. I know that it's technically black metal, but really, it's in such a atmospheric way that I think you could really dig it.
    December 3 01:09 PM
  • Jethro42 Oh I see; Priorities before all, that's the way it has to be. Hope you're gonna be back soon, mate. I'm not into a writing mood myself. Mostly a question of motivation. I'm however half the way with Renaissance's Turn of the Cards, so one day...
    November 13 02:06 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag, where are you? Hope everything is fine. Please come back!
    November 11 11:52 AM
  • GooGooGajoob Is there such a thing as Subscribing to a User on Sputnik Music? Don't know if this should even be asked here but...you seem to know your s***

  • ThunderNeutral21 yes an acdc solo
    October 21 07:46 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag! I'm currently at my gf apartment and she doesnt have Internet for now. I intend to continue with Renaissance's Turn of the Cards, hopefully as soon as I'm back home, which means during this week. Cheers!
    September 2 05:16 PM
  • Jethro42 Excellent work on the review, mate! And your ''recommended by reviewer'' stuff is pretty accurate as well. Bravo, and long live ProgJect!
    August 2 04:14 PM
  • Jethro42 Nice to hear that!
    August 2 12:28 PM
  • Jethro42 So, how is the review going?
    August 2 10:01 AM
  • Jethro42 ahhh those bad beautiful days haha Well you just have to wait for the good moment, so it will pay off for the review =). I wish you a big shower pouring down the sky asap! Thanks for the news, mate.
    July 27 12:13 PM
  • Jethro42 Here's the review. Rating = 4/5. Feel free to cut the superfluous if there is. It's now all yours. I hope it doesnt represent too much work for you. Thanks in advance, and long live ProgJect.
    July 24 11:54 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag! Another ProgJect one is on its way; Museo Rosenbach - Zarathustra. I expect to finish it somewhere between now and the week-end to come. Then after, I intend to do Renaissance - Turn of the Cards, (dedicated to KILL) if you agree, of course. Keep on P/
    July 23 04:31 PM
  • greg84 I'm glad you like some of them. Possession is at least a 4 imo. You need to listen to it more man. The album has subliminal power imo. Besides, it's the best heavy metal LP of the year so far.
    July 4 11:56 AM
  • Jethro42 Super duper, my friend. I already have an idea of what could be next; Either Solaris, Karmakanic or Taal, all modern prog for a change. It could be a good thing in order to try to gain some other readers. I'm also half the way with another Italian band of the 70s but it can wait on the shelf for a moment. Long live ProgJect yesss!
    May 30 06:46 AM
  • Jethro42 Locanda Delle Fate is all yours. Rating = 4.5/5. Hope you wont have too much work to do on it. Keep on P/, mate.
    May 28 07:06 PM
  • Jethro42 Here's what our next one sounds like; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeUpz3SONfg - I might soon finish it if it goes like I wish. Cheers!
    May 27 07:59 PM
  • Jethro42 Thank you so much Nag buddy, for another excellent piece of work. Btw Being aware you did appreciate Phantasmagoria, I could easily see you digging Air cut as well. Keep on progging!
    May 4 06:09 PM
  • Jethro42 Two of the more important Italian acts, either Locanda Della Fate or Museo Rosenbach is coming up next. Hope you at least did read Curved Air lately. Cheers!
    May 3 11:13 PM
  • Jethro42 Very understandable, my friend. Priorities have always to be considered in the first place. As for the review, please add at the 1st para; ''...The signature of the band is primarly their unusual combination of instruments; a wide variety of synthesizers, electric violin (one of the very first band using it in a rock context), FLUTES, TRUMPET, and then for Sonja's crystal clear vocals...'' Thanks!
    May 2 05:27 AM
  • Jethro42 Sup mate, are you there?
    May 1 05:31 PM
  • Jethro42 k, I'm mostly done with the review (give me let say 30 mins). I'm currently proofreading in order to not letting you too much extra. Feel free to cut/add whatever you want to. That one was a hard one for me, so be gentle =]
    April 27 08:13 PM
  • Jethro42 Chances are high it can be today. If not? Tomorrow morning. Zang! I have to confess, this one did give me some troubles due to a lack of inspiration as I told you. Now the difficulties seem to have dissipated...
    April 27 08:34 AM
  • Jethro42 If there is a moment that you prefer to complete Curved Air, just let me know and I'll do my best to send it to you opportunely.

    April 19 10:03 PM
  • Jethro42 just saw your WAW review is already out and I immediatly felt helpless. Well I've still taken some notes on that one, but there were at my gf's apartment (yes yes) located at 3 hours from here. She returns back home tonight, and I'm sorry if I'm too late. It's still my fault for the same reasons I did susmention to you for the previous reviews of yours. My apologize for this fact mate.
    April 19 06:13 PM
  • Jethro42 ... ^(oopsss I lost half of my text) SO I wont be able to bring to you the stuff before the beginning of the next week. I.m still there if you wish some cues about WAW.
    April 10 07:09 AM
  • Jethro42 I'm into the same position as the last time; far from home and without my Curved Air's draft. That's right for two consecutive times (%!%
    April 10 06:41 AM
  • Parallels Haha alright dude
    April 6 01:18 PM
  • Metalstyles That's good news, man! I for one have definitely missed your presence here :)
    April 6 11:45 AM
  • Metalstyles So, are you going to be around more now in general, or are just making a quick cameo for the Genesis discography haha?
    April 6 07:29 AM
  • Parallels Ok, so you NEED to bump up that JP Stained Class rating up to at least a 4.5. I find myself being one hell of a critic to give it that and not a 5.
    April 4 03:45 AM
  • Jethro42 ''Ah, this really helps in putting some thoughts to words, that always seems my greatest writing issue.'' Ah, you're way too modest, mate! ''A great many thanks mate, your Genesis knowledge is invaluable.'' Man, stop feeding my ego lol. Annnd you're very welcome. Be prepared to receive the WAW draft and Curved Air as well in a near future.
    April 3 12:09 PM
  • Jethro42 Couple of other song desc if ever you wish to expose some; Mad Man Moon wouldnt be out of place among any Camel's classics. Dance With A Volcano has exceptionally complex vocal and instrumental arrangements. LET THE DANCE BEGIIIIINS
    April 3 10:38 AM
  • Jethro42 There we go, ATOTT is there for you. I decided to put a big deal of infos, hope you dont mind. If too much is like not enough, the former is better still haha. Cheers mate! Have a good one!
    April 3 03:42 AM
  • Jethro42 Just to reassure you, I don't forget about the Genesis thing. I'll send it to you tomorrow, somewhere in the afternoon or something like that. As for Curved Air, it should be done sometime soon this week. Keep on P/
    April 1 10:34 AM
  • NeutralThunder12 haha yep thats the next on my too listen list with the hold steady and neurosis, i have a half day at work today so im prolly gonna revisit it
    April 1 08:37 AM
  • Jethro42 Raise our glass to ProgJect. Cigarz mate! You did an amazing job on the review. Let's keep up the professional work. I suggest you to give it a spin to prove how much the review gives justice to Gazpacho. I could be done with Air Cut by this week-end. I also will give you some cue for your upcoming Genesis reviews somewhere this evening. Keep on progging!
    March 28 06:29 PM
  • Jethro42 Oops! A proofreading led me to something to correct; The 3rd para has to be split in two; its first part is talking about their very first albums, and its last sentence has to be ''...Jan Henrik Ohmes deep, sensitive yet fragile vocals recalling Mark Hollis meets Steve Hogarth.'' The last part of the para is related to Tick Tock, and it's starting with; ''Featuring some very mature playing, they manage to create an atmosphere...''
    March 28 01:59 PM
  • Jethro42 Stay tuned my friend, I'm about to send you Tick Tock (4.5/5). A question of minutes.
    March 28 04:36 AM
  • tarkus On second look, I might do a discography since there is only one review of I have time.
    March 27 07:21 PM
  • tarkus Would there be any soon to be overlapping reviews if I were to do some reviews of uncovered Van Der Graaf Generator albums?
    March 27 06:50 PM
  • Jethro42 Sure I can do it for you. I currently don't have much time on my hands, so don't expect to receive it before your wednesday morning - same thing for our Gazpacho's. Don't be afraid though, I have some amazing plans for ProgJect.
    March 26 04:29 PM
  • Activista anti-MTV no. 2
    March 25 05:46 AM
  • Jethro42 You did it! Mission accomplished, my friend. Thanks!
    March 24 02:37 PM
  • Jethro42 Another thing; As seen on Gazpacho's front page, Tick Tock doesn't have its cover art. I did try to edit it in the past, but with no result. Do you think you'd be able to correct it? Here's the cover art; http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/gazpacho/tick_tock/
    March 24 01:55 PM
  • Jethro42 Gazpacho's Tick Tock is almost done. I only was back home yesterday evening, that's why it was impossible for me to take it and finish it. And I thought you were not active onto Sputnik during the week ends?.. Be prepared to receive it very soon. Monday at the latest I hope. Curved Air is addle-brained and I already know what's next! Cheers!
    March 24 01:04 PM
  • Jethro42 Man, I have a bad and a good news. The good one is that I'm almost done with the review. The bad is that I am currently 3 hours away from home and I forgot to e-mail it to myself to finish it. Annnd I'm only back home in 10 days. Ah well... That kind of s.u.c.k.s. Review is gonna be great though. So desappointing we have to wait that long. awwwww
    March 10 06:02 PM
  • Jethro42 Strangely enough, I couldnt say which one I prefer from their heydays. They're all so much essential. If I had to rank, it would be something like; SEBTP, TLLDOB, Foxtrot, A Trick of the Tail, Trespass, Nursery Cryme and Wind and Wuthering. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy Nursery Cryme. I just don't listen to it as often as their other masterpieces. Take also note that regarding my ranking, my top 3 could be in constant rotation.
    March 7 02:09 PM
  • Jethro42 It's a pleasure. I just saw you were unable to decide on which you should 5 between SEBTP or TLLDOB. The answer is both of them =]. As for Gazpacho, I will send it to you by Thursday (your Friday morning). Cheers!
    March 7 12:08 PM
  • dannyboy89 *all four. And yeah, I can see why you would like those others more. Camel is horribly underrated btw.
    March 6 01:42 PM
  • dannyboy89 Makes perfect sense, since all three pretty much established the genre. You like Jethro Tull??
    March 6 12:14 PM
  • dannyboy89 BTW, who are traditionally considered as the Big Four of Prog??
    March 5 09:05 PM
  • dannyboy89 And you're definitely right, tempering one's enthusiasm when reviewing is a learned skill.
    March 5 01:19 PM
  • dannyboy89 Fair enough.
    March 5 01:15 PM
  • dannyboy89 http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/47801/Anthrax-Spreading-The-Disease/I edited this review, please comment.
    March 4 12:09 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey Nag, mate. I've been outside for the last 3 weeks, so I was unable to get ahead with Gazpacho. Most of my ideas are gathered though, so I'll try my best to send it all to you during these days, and next week-end has to be the very latest. Prog on, cheers!
    March 3 12:37 AM
  • dannyboy89 Has anyone done a Pink Floyd discog?
    February 26 05:23 PM
  • dannyboy89 So, you're thinking of doing the Genesis discog? It's a pretty hard task, since they made so much great music. I personally enjoy both the Collins and Gabriel eras, though that depends on how much of a hardcore progger the listener is.
    February 25 10:49 PM
  • Jethro42 Since the inspiration for Curved Air don't seem to manifest, I decided to cover Gazpacho's Tick Tock instead.
    February 23 11:54 AM
  • Jethro42 Damn right, we need to put another ProgJect on the map asap. I didnt have much time on my hand to do so lately though. But now I can start the machine. Cheers mate!
    February 22 12:38 PM
  • dannyboy89 what was the last discography you reviewed??
    February 18 05:40 PM
  • dannyboy89 Yeah, we seem to share similar opinions. What of Rush's work do you dig?
    February 13 05:49 PM
  • dannyboy89 BTW, you really seem to have a fascination with 70's rock music.
    February 12 12:13 AM
  • dannyboy89 Which are, in your opinion, the best Metallica records? What do you think of Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax?
    February 10 09:11 PM
  • mallen- Yeah, I hear you there. I actually don't contribute to that site anymore for the same reason.
    February 8 07:25 PM
  • mallen- Hey Nag, any chance you are interesting in writing/contributing in general to another site?
    February 7 03:30 PM
  • DarthMann nah its like sputnik immunity
    February 5 04:58 PM
  • DarthMann man that sucks, staff obv missed something
    February 5 04:31 PM
  • DarthMann how are you not contrib
    February 5 04:21 PM
  • Irving Thanks a lot man, it looks great now :) Cheers! PS - The band is pretty solid too!
    January 28 04:05 AM
  • Irving And if you ever **** up with adding a Malaysian band (lol) to the database...you know who to call. I'll gladly return the favour ahahaha!
    January 25 11:13 PM
  • Irving http://www.themedics.nl/about/S'all yours =) Go tell us all what "hulp bij lusteloosheid en andere uitputtingsverschijnselen" means LOL.
    January 25 11:12 PM
  • Irving Excellent =) So basically I screwed up adding an album to the Sputnik database. I confused the Dutch "The Medics" with another Australian band of the same name. Luckily, the Australian band has no albums added - just a band description. I was thinking of basically replacing that description with the one belonging to the Dutch band - that way everything can go back to the way it was again =)
    January 25 11:11 PM
  • Irving Nag, could I get a translating favour from you whenever you're free? (Just to be sure, you are Dutch...right?)
    January 25 09:21 AM
  • Jethro42 Happy Holidays mate! Happy new year and best in all!
    December 25 08:09 PM
  • Detritivore Very solid reviews. Objetive and musically informative. Itīs seems you reviews are moving from heavy to progresiveness. Cheers and keep going!

    December 16 04:30 PM
  • Jethro42 'better stolen wel than badly created' is indeed an appropriate expression. I swear to God I've never heard an iota about it, either from friend's big brothers, friends, press or radio. My guess is that it came to everyone's ears with the event of internet and its infinite research data.
    December 14 03:18 PM
  • randomstofil I love reading your reviews, could you do Pink Floyd's discography? That would be awsome :)
