  • MrSirLordGentleman wow Chino Moreno, didn't expect that one from you haha
    May 25 07:02 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Plant's awesome, but you gotta admit Dio, Byron, Gillan or Farner are as good (if not better) and so often overlooked over him

  • Friday13th oh haha darn phone makes copying hard
    May 16 06:45 PM
  • Friday13th I made a Beach Boys list explaining why I dig their songs. Maybe it answers the hype a bit. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=732569

  • MrSirLordGentleman Dude! The funk album I rec'd you a few days ago
    May 14 12:46 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Did you check Greasin' the Wheels? o:
    May 12 10:05 PM
  • Onirium De ce que je comprends, c'est particulier, mais il semble faire la tournée des régions québécoises...
    May 12 08:12 AM
  • Onirium Hey! Si tu as la chance de voir Patrick Watson en spectacle, n'hésite pas; probablement l'un des spectacles les plus géniaux auxquels j'ai assisté.

  • Sabrutin Oh yeah, not gonna try to sell Toto as a flat out prog band. The pop sensibilities (or, as I like to call it, great taste for melody :D) are part of why I like them so much after all!
    May 9 11:13 AM
  • Crave Thanks for the Maneige rec man, Les Porches is a gem of an album
    May 8 06:19 PM
  • Sabrutin I really like the vocals on the 2016 edition, they sound less natural but also more mature. Plus, I feel the artwork fits the concept better.
    May 8 03:38 PM
  • Sabrutin Of those tracks I'd say the only with actual progressive elements are Hydra and English Eyes, but live they love to have fun, I recommend seeing them to any progger. I wouldn't call them a prog rock band but definitely a "prog something" one because of their everchanging style(s). This is from their last album, for example: http://y2u.be/Tny_bz34g0g. About Le Orme, the 2016 version has re-recorded vocals, live drums and different arrangements. Comes in both English and Italian.
    May 8 06:56 AM
  • Sabrutin I'm not going to spend too many words on Toto right now since I'm planning a discog review in the future, except that Dante used tota to mean 'everything', from the latin 'in toto'. I'll just leave you with this short live medley as an appetizer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DfV-FgIoVk
    May 7 05:25 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman check this for some stupidly well performed funk (100% instrumental) http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/68681/The-Sound-Stylistics-Greasin-The-Wheels/
    May 7 04:46 PM
  • Onirium D'accord, on s'emporte tous parfois :p Je dois dire que je n'ai pas été séduit par Nemo, mais je n'ai jamais beaucoup aimé cette branche du rock progressif moderne à la Neal Morse. J'ai souvent trouvé pompeux ou peu curieux ce type de prog, par contre, Nemo ont un certain aspect mélodique que j'aime bien, et une identité qui leur est propre. Ils sont excellents dans ce qu'ils font, c'est indéniable, et je comprends qu'on puisse l'apprécier, mais somme toute, "it's not my cup of tea" ;)

  • MrSirLordGentleman How is it that you haven't commented on Crime of the Century's thread yet?
    April 22 07:10 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID I don't think there are any future classics among the 2016 releases (so far), but some of them are an interesting listen.
    April 18 06:49 AM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID My top prog albums of 2016, roughly ranked--best at the top:https://rateyourmusic.com/list/TwigTW/2016_prog_releases_i_like/
    April 17 10:23 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID Thanks for saying you erased your last comment, after a couple of martinis stuff like that really confuses me, lol.
    April 17 10:12 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman yo, look what I reviewed
    April 17 03:17 PM
  • Snowdog808 I want to thank you very much for mentioning Panzerballett on the Round 7 thread. I tried out their Tank Goodness album today and loved it a lot. It sounds kind of like a mix of Animals as Leaders, Dave Brubeck, and some of Stanley Clarke's greatest solo work to me.
    April 16 04:34 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I didn't know about this "Earth's Sacred Heart" band, I love the instrumentation, though there's something about the vocals that I can't dig, don't know what it is, since they aren't "bad" per se
    April 7 12:23 AM
  • smaugman thanks!
    April 6 04:31 PM
  • smaugman hey, do you have underground prog recs for me?
    April 6 03:53 PM
  • e210013 Dude, I'm sorry but I was offline for almost one month. The PC of my youngest son broke down and I had to lend mine. He studies computer science in the university in another town and as you know, a PC is an essential tool for any college student, especially in this case. I saw your comments in the shoutbox before, but only now I recovered my PC and I'm able to answer you.I'm very happy that you remembered of me to that contest. Maybe in the next time I will can I will participate on it. Cheers

  • CusmanX1 Thank you so much, I will ask him!
    March 20 04:03 PM
  • CusmanX1 Hei Jethro, do you know where can I find the english translation of the lyrics of l'heptade?
    March 20 01:44 PM
  • KILL What finesse Kate Bush has. Her vocal dexterity is truly comparable to none; her pure singing, akin to her graceful dance, gliding so effortlessly like a skater on ice. This demonstration of her beautiful dancing, all thanks to Lindsay Kemp of course,really completes the ultimate message so? many of her songs convey; she is so full of ardor, and she must show it, whatever the circumstance, whoever this 'stranger' she mentions really is. Oh! The hurt done from this person who deprived her of love

    March 19 02:02 PM
  • Onirium Que de belles chansons... "Il n'y a plus rien" représente par contre un style un peu différent, plus lyrique, contenant des envolées poétiques incroyables, c'est plutôt difficile à encaisser du premier coup tant c'est chargé. C'est pour moi vraiment l'apogée de son art. L'album est sur Spotify, au fait
    March 16 08:01 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit Will check it out! Thanks for the rec and for jamming man
    March 15 11:16 PM
  • Onirium Eh oui... Mais il m'arrive de trouver ses arrangements parfois très 80s plutôt désagréables... ;) Ferré se démarque effectivement par sa musique qu'il orchestrait lui-même, mais ses textes sont mes préférés de la chanson française. Je te recommande tout l'album "Il n'y a plus rien", si tu t'intéresses à sa plume. :) Quant à Brassens, il est plus candide, et ses rimes extrêmement riches sont toujours charmantes.
    March 15 09:37 PM
  • Onirium Je préfère le côté dénonciateur et activiste de Renaud, avec Hexagone, Jojo le démago et beaucoup de morceaux de ses débuts. Comme il n'a pas la plus douce voix du monde, j'ai toujours eu un plus de difficulté avec ses morceaux plus calmes, bien qu'ils aient souvent de très beaux textes. Je préfère de loin Ferré ou Brassens à Renaud, par contre, mais ils sont plus ou moins comparables
    March 15 08:47 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit put out some music, you may enjoy - kinggreenied.bandcamp.com/album/the-moon-has-fallen

    February 26 05:03 PM
  • beefshoes Thanks for the notification! Unfortunately, I don't think that I have anything to contribute, but I'm looking forward to checking out some of the albums that are featured in the list.
    February 26 02:12 PM
  • Onirium Et au contraire de plusieurs groupes de prog plus obscurs, Fruupp a développé un son plutôt original. Bien que la musique m'évoque parfois très clairement une rencontre des Beach Boys et de Genesis, la combinaison reste tout de même inattendue, et ils utilisent brillamment leurs influences. La qualité sonore de leurs enregistrements est médiocre, malheureusement
    February 24 08:57 PM
  • Onirium Je me souviens avoir ecoute THe Prince of Heaven's Eyes de Fuurpp au moment d'un precedent "obscure prog contest", et bien que je n'aie pas trouvé l'album tres interessant, je trouvais charmant le côté un peu 60s de la musique, et les quelques grooves progressifs amusants, particulièrement dans ce morceau: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jT8KQJqUDW4 J'etais intrigue par "Future Legends", et je dois dire que jusqu'ici je ne suis pas decu: je retrouve ce meme charme, mais c'est bien meilleur
    February 23 09:34 PM
  • Friday13th Got it. Yeah, I submitted it and waited for about half-hour and then it just gave me an error message :/
    February 20 10:45 PM
  • Onirium Je pense que le serveur du site est souvent un peu instable, ce qui pourrait expliquer le problème. Je peux essayer, ça me ferait plaisir, quel est l'album? Ta proposition à la liste de Friday? ;)

    February 1 03:57 PM
  • ultimatethrasher Can you rec me some prog Jethro?
    January 30 05:10 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Haha, well I think that's good, it means they have their own identity
    January 20 11:39 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman "Strawberry Tartlet" is the literal translation, they do have some sweet flute/bass work. I've checked Manaige but I can't see very similarities between them and Blops
    January 19 10:34 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman What do you think about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pp-td5OnaMU
    January 19 08:27 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Have you checked Dream After Dream? It was Journey's attempt to go back to prog when Perry was already with them. It does have some pretty cool moments tbh
    January 18 09:45 PM
  • e210013 Dude, finally I put on Sputnik my first list. It wasn't to be this list and this way, but the things are what they are. So, I followed your advice and I would like to have your comment, if you wish.Cheers.
    January 12 10:28 AM
  • Voivod Happy new year Jethro, with a little prog rock gem from Finland - http://maladyband.bandcamp.com/
    January 6 03:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman The keys, flute and violin sound more thense in the english version, sometimes I prefer it but not every time. As for the bass, I think you got it wrong there, in Appena un Po sounds way more powerful
    November 24 09:22 PM
  • Onirium Merci, je vais m'y lancer! Messenger ont un son vraiment intéressant, une sorte d'actualisation du folk progressif, avec des envolées atmosphériques d'une qualité surprenante pour un premier album.
    November 9 10:15 PM
  • Onirium Je parlais de voix plutôt au sens large, c'est-à-dire qu'ils sont un groupe phare du mouvement selon moi, mais je suis parfaitement d'accord que la voix d'Ohme est magnifique et envoûtante. Vocalement, le chanteur du groupe Messenger est aussi plutôt similaire. Pour ce qui est de Mayan Factor, j'en avais entendu parler mais ce morceau m'intrigue beaucoup, c'est excellent. Si j'avais à écouter un album, par lequel devrais-je commencer?
    November 9 08:14 PM
  • Gyromania awesome! you are the man =D gazpacho could always use a little more love on sput. gonna be out for most of the day but i'll peep that when i get home
    November 9 10:47 AM
  • Onirium C'est vrai que The Walk Part II brise un peu le momentum de l'album, mais ça reste une magnifique chanson en soi. Pour ma part, Demon reste mon favori, suivi de près par Tick Tock, puis Night. C'est bien dommage que le groupe ne soit pas sujet à plus de reconnaissance; plus je découvre leur musique, plus je réalise à quel point ils sont une des plus émotives et fortes voix de la musique progressive des dernières années.
    November 8 10:15 PM
  • Onirium Oui c'est vrai, Defense Mechanism est plutôt bonne aussi. Je n'ai absolument aucun problème avec le fait que l'album soit plus atmosphérique, ça fonctionnait à merveille sur Night. Cependant, comme tu le dis, sur M.A., il manque les moments marquants et les envolées poignantes qu'on retrouve sur Night. Mon écoute de March of Ghost me surprend vraiment. Les morceaux sont diversifiés mais cohérents, et j'aime bien la lourdeur que tu as mentionnée qui ajoute un côté presque envoûtant à la musique.
    November 8 08:58 PM
  • Onirium Et malgré tout, je critique Molok mais il en reste que c'est un album que j'écoute avec plaisir. En fait tout ceci m'a porté à réécouter Missa Atropos, ce que je suis en train de faire en ce moment. Et certains morceaux sont excellents, mais tout me semble flotter dans une atmosphère sans relief. Splendid Isolation, Snail et la chanson-titre sont certainement pour moi les morceaux les plus intéressants de l'album. Je me lance dans March of Ghosts après, je dois me rafraîchir la mémoire
    November 8 08:01 PM
  • Onirium C'est vrai, je tends à oublier trop souvent March of Ghost et Missa Atropos (bien que dans ce dernier certains morceaux soient peut-être moins bien réussis). Quant aux plus courts morceaux de Demon, je dois avouer que The Cage n'est pas incroyable; cependant j'adore l'excentricité totale de Wizard. Le morceau n'est pas de la qualité d'Ive Been Walking ou Death Room, mais je trouve qu'il ajoute une profondeur et des textures intéressantes à l'album
    November 8 07:30 PM
  • Onirium Molok manque un peu de fluidité en effet (certains morceaux comme Park Bench contiennent beaucoup d'excellentes idées, mais regroupées en une trop courte chanson, peut-être, au détriment de la cohérence). Et je suis partiellement d'accord avec toi à propos de la première partie: The Master's Voice est peu marquante, mais je trouve un certain charme à Bela Kiss, spécialement grâce à l'accordéon. Know Your Time, Choir of Ancestors et Alarm sont les grands titres de l'album selon moi.
    November 8 07:25 PM
  • Onirium C'est peut-être parce que c'est cet album qui m'a introduit au groupe, mais je garde l'impression que c'est leur premier album ayant atteint un niveau de cohérence et d'audace pratiquement parfait. Je trouve intéressant également ta sélection de morceaux de Molok; j'ai été quelque peu déçu par l'album en général, mais il en reste que, même si je préfère leurs longs morceaux ambitieux, ils ont réussi à composer brillamment de plus courtes chansons souvent excellents et magnifiques.
    November 8 07:05 PM
  • Onirium Salut! C'était interessant; je ne m'étais jamais vraiment réfléchi à quels morceaux étaient mes préférés, mais je suis bien d'accord avec la majorité de ta liste. J'aurais ajouté quelques morceaux comme Desert Flight et Know Your Time. Je crois que mon ultime favori par contre serait I've Been Walking Part II; en fait, je dois avouer que j'ai un faible pour tout ce qui provient de Demon.
    November 8 06:52 PM
  • Atari I just have one rec for you atm, check out the pentangle - basket of light. it's not at all like the last albums I rec'd you, it's from 1969, but it's excellent. the musicianship is definitely solid and I think you'd dig :]
    October 30 04:17 PM
  • Atari i'll let you know if I think of something similar I think you should check out, but I don't want to overwhelm you with recs haha
    October 30 12:43 PM
  • Atari no worries at all, I take it the mantle is your favorite agalloch album? I can always rec you more neofolk if you end up wanting more stuff similar to this
    October 28 04:38 PM
  • Atari glad you enjoyed novemthree man!
    October 28 12:50 PM
  • Nagrarok So I am not all that surprised, but you are forgiven ;)
    October 23 07:05 PM
  • Nagrarok I had noticed from time to time that some bits and pieces seemed to come from somewhere, and others seemed to come from somewhere else, and that you tended to repeat the same information sometimes. But of course it isn't easy writing in English when it isn't your first language! It was never too obvious, really. I was too busy with reorganizing and correcting the grammar and such to be too aware of it, haha.
    October 23 07:02 PM
  • Nagrarok Life has been good to me lately. I have a girlfriend, a job and I'm living on my own :)

  • e210013 Anyway, thanks man.
    October 5 03:32 PM
  • e210013 Hey dude, I put a band, the biography and a review on Sputnik. It's a new band and is about their debut album. When you check it, you are going to understand better what I mean. In short, I informed the band that I put the review today. I need your help, to you contact your friends on Sputnik. I told the band that on Sputnik we have a good and interesting prog community. So, it will be important to have some rates and comments about the album, more than the usual, on my reviews. Thanks man.
    October 5 06:53 AM
  • OmairSh Hey Jethro, guess what, another coke studio list http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=161887
    September 30 10:57 AM
  • altertide0 well, he didn't really have a solo career. the only "proper" album he released was Exposure, the rest is just ambient frippertronics - nothing special.
    September 29 07:39 AM
  • altertide0 I haven't heard Rush yet and I know I have to check them out but I'm not in a "hard rock" mood recently and their discography is quite extensive. The less known bands you mention I think I'll have to give up on, I'm not that big fan of prog to be honest.
    September 28 07:58 PM
  • altertide0 no problem, I'm not a native speaker myself, so I understand your position perfectly. I like the red and yellow KC 80's records (blue is too poppy). After that their last album is also worthwhile (Thrak and ConstruKction have too much wankery IMO). I see you haven't rated Fripp's Exposure and A Scarcity of Miracles (A King Crimson ProjeKct). How is that even possible you haven't heard them, given your enormous prog knowledge? I recommend listening to them
    September 28 07:56 PM
  • altertide0 And Then There Were Three and Duke are poor but still listenable but the rest is awful. I think King Crimson have been much better at staying relevant after 70s.
    September 28 05:06 PM
  • altertide0 experience*
    September 28 04:18 PM
  • altertide0 hey there, just wanted to let you know that i've finally made it through genesis' pop era. that was one miserable exerience. :/ but you don't know unless you try it, do you
    September 28 04:18 PM
  • e210013 Sincerely I'm not worried with that. As you said, it's all a question of time. Soon or later people will recognize my work. And if they don't recognize it, this isn't my problem but a problem of them. I'm perfectly comfortable, because I know that I'm going to do a very honest and decent job. What matters to me is to continue to count with your support. Thanks for your concern. Anyway, I will think about it.
    September 25 10:59 AM
  • Funeralopolis Thanks a lot man! I'll check those bands out for sure, been meaning to get more into prog.
    September 24 04:10 PM
  • Funeralopolis Yo I'm really digging Gentle Giant hard, this is some of the best stuff I have heard in an extremely long time. Do you know any other bands/artists that are similiar?
    September 24 01:06 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman The LP's definitely a tough pill to digest since it is a double album but it is one of the coolest experimental things I've heard
    September 12 01:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman How the hell is it that you haven't rated 666
    September 12 01:02 PM
  • e210013 My comment is on my ELP's review. It seems so big that does not fit in the shoutbox. Sorry.
    September 3 05:15 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman old Journey? like proggy era Journey? damn that doesn't seem to be a good sign haha
    September 2 07:31 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Blinded by the Light is a pretty average song imo. Their albums are inconsistent as hell (since half of them always consisted on covers) but their original songs are extremly good sometimes. Solar Fire and Nightingales and Bombers are easily their best albums and the first half of Messin' is classic as well
    September 1 07:28 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Have you checked Manfred Mann? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ0VCr3Y8Pg
    September 1 06:47 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman What do you think about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLqw9IB110s I'm not a fan of jazz but I love this since it is well-structured and not so much improvisation-oriented like most instrumental jazz. That piano riff is awesome
    August 19 02:27 PM
  • Frippertronics a bit of a shameless plug, but I got two new Enid reviews out. The Bridge is currently featured on the front page, and 1994's Tripping The Light Fantastic is the continuation of the discog series. The Bridge review was written in June, but came out two weeks ago. Dunno if you care or not, but I thought you may be interested.
    July 20 07:36 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman The whole album is on youtube, so you just need to search for the tracklist on wikipedia or something similar and then search each of the 5 songs on youtube
    July 17 04:04 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I may have send you this one already, but I'll do it again since I know you'd enjoy something on the vein of Van der Graaf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UljOsAsLSKM
    July 17 12:47 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Is Famous Last Words worth checking?, or is there at least one song on it that's on the same level as the four previous albums? Cause I really want more of Supertramp, but I don't think it can really top their past releases
    July 15 05:34 PM
  • Torontonian I took your advice and posted a request on the meds thread. I felt kind of narcissistic asking for it but the other review really is not very good. ANd glad you enjoyed my review!
    July 13 10:55 PM
  • Voivod Salut Jethro, il y a tres long temps depuis notre derniere discussion, ce album la est progressive rock Italien, j'espere que tu l'aimeras - http://inior.bandcamp.com/album/hypnerotomachia
    July 11 10:43 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Have you checked Jean Michel Jarre?
    July 5 08:16 PM
  • Sabrutin Hey Jethro, admittedly the only albums I fully heard are the debut, Alpha, Astra, XXX and Gravitas. The rest only bits and pieces. I stopped after Astra because I had the chance to listen to Aqua and I felt I should have stopped, but I was lured in again by XXX's artwork... and I'm glad I did! I've been jamming it quite often since last winter and I really dig most of it. I'll try to fill my gaps soon, I'll be sure to give Phoenix a proper listen once I'll get to it! :]
    July 2 04:30 PM
  • Sabrutin Yeah, I see your point about the lack of a certain *thing* that makes it special. That said the debut is definitely not my favorite from them, if you manage to get a hold of the track "Questo Destino" I would suggest to take a listen. Glad you found something to enjoy!
    June 30 06:41 AM
  • Sabrutin Hope you enjoy!
    June 28 05:01 AM
  • Sabrutin I noticed on YouTube there are a few tracks. The debut is on Spotify at https://play.spotify.com/album/3L3WWrwcJplpeCubs3eBQc, but for the rest there may only be the bad way.
    June 27 04:34 AM
  • Sabrutin Hehe the man's doing a commendable job with his lists! Anyway if you are intrigued by the band my favorite track by Il Castello Di Atlante is "Questo Destino". Speaking of that list, the last band I mentioned (Spettri) is basically what Black Sabbath would sound if they were a prog rock band founded in 1964.
    June 26 04:44 PM
  • Sabrutin I see you appreciate Italian prog. In the case you may enjoy some Il Castello Di Atlante! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLg1l6QKX48

  • SoccerRiot Hey man, guess what? I'm finally doing Moroccan Roll as my next review :D I've been on a real Brand X binge again lately
    June 20 12:16 PM
  • Onirium En effet! J'ai personnellement pris beaucoup plus de temps à digérer l'album que ses précédents, le croyant au début plutôt incohérent et divaguant. Cependant, après plusieurs écoutes, j'ai pu parfaitement réaliser que j'avais en quelque sorte tort, et qu'en réalité la cohésion et l'unité étaient les points forts de l'album. Mon opinion a légèrement changé depuis l'écriture de ma critique, mais peu importe: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/67183/Patrick-Watson-Love-Songs-for-Robots/

  • TWIGtheWONDERKID ''Diamond Head'' is a good place to start with solo Manzanera--but ''Listen Now'' and ''801 Live'' are obscure prog/art rock gems, so that might be more your style.
    April 18 07:58 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID Have you listened to any of Manzanera's solo albums, or his work with 801? Much better than Ferry's solo work imho.
    April 18 07:39 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID I enjoy most of the songs from ''Manifesto'' individually, but listening to the entire record at once bores me. I am not sure why--definitely one of their weakest . . . I hate to say it, because I love Roxy Music so much, but I do not think Bryan Ferry put out a brilliant album on his own. You might check out ''Olympia.'' Ferry, Eno, Manzanera and Mackay reunite on it. In a way, it is the follow up to ''Avalon.'' It has that dreamy ''Avalon'' atmosphere. I like it.
    April 18 06:48 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID Always interested in Roxy Music!
    April 17 04:55 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Just checked it, you included all of my favorites from Country Life and FyP, so I approve the list haha
    April 17 02:33 PM
  • Torontonian sup jethro, you really should give this album a listen. Its so much fun! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPzvHV1yTbk
    March 24 10:51 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Ouais, j'ai fait des recherches, mais comme j'ai dit, c'est pas toujours evident de s'y rendre. Je me demandais parce que je vais souvent chez Aux 33 Tours, mais ce magasin peu revenir très cher parfois. En tous cas, t'inquiete et merci tout de meme :]
    March 11 02:41 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Mais bon, je suis pas certain si tu serais incroyablement familier avec les magasins de musique de Montreal dans ce cas...
    March 11 01:23 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Non non, au contraire! Je collectionne ca beaucoup ces jours-ci. Justement je me demandais si tu connaissais des bons magasins de vinyles. Je demeure dans l'ouest de l'ile et il n'y a pas une grande selection de magasins. Le plateau Mont-Royal en a en abondance, mais c'est loiiiiiiiiiiin, donc c'est pas toujours possible d'y aller
    March 11 01:20 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Bon matin Jethro! So je me rappelle bien tu es montréalais, oui? Alors tiens j'ai une question : collectes-tu les vinyles?
    March 11 09:35 AM
  • Torontonian hey, just got around to listening to ni nouvelle ! definelty liked it. i need to listen more but i definelty liked it. Really diverse album. really like all the different elements and it was very uplifting!
    March 10 11:32 PM
  • Snowdog808 Hi again Jethro. I just posted 50 of my favorite albums from the 70s, some of which are Jethro Tull. Maybe you could tell me about some other albums of the decade I would love.
    March 6 07:48 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Oohh but I've checked it for viruses. Well if you change your mind just message me
    February 26 07:46 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Hahaha noooo dude, I know how to download a torrent, I was saying it because of you, if you want me to send you the link so you can download it?
    February 26 07:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Mmm that's a shame cause I found an excellent virus-free version of Supertramps' Live in Paris DVD on piratebay
    February 26 07:21 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Jethro please tell me you know how to download via torrent
    February 26 07:10 PM
  • Onirium After one listen Elegant Gyspsy is indeed quite excellent, the flamenco touches are definitely an interesting addition to that kind of jazz-rock sound. Now, Friday's message in your shoutbox just remembered me I needed to check out Jean-Luc Ponty ;)
    February 24 07:18 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Hahaha thanks, yeah im really happy with the list. i thought it was going to get featured but i still think it ended up pretty well, with the for the lists they look pretty well
    February 21 08:51 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You don't?? Not that much of his style, but it is a great fast-paced and well performed drumming imo
    February 21 02:08 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Here, have some not-so-high-pitched Surkamp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p7RtIQLWchQ (plus Bruford and Andy MacKay)
    February 20 11:15 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Nah, you're the one that needs to stay with Harmonium haha, I made a list of the albums that I want to review for my second anniversary in here though
    February 19 10:21 PM
  • Friday13th Thanks, man, I will check more Jean-Luc Ponty.
    February 19 05:42 PM
  • Friday13th YEAAAAAH I think you'd appreciate the magnitude of my used vinyl score today. I just bought Jean-Luc Ponty - Enigmatic Ocean, Shawn Phillips - Second Contribution, and It's a Beautiful Day for $1 each!
    February 19 04:08 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I don't know if I asked this before but... only 5 reviews? you could easily be a contrib if you wanted dude! why not review more?, ProgJect doesn't count hahaa
    February 18 11:03 PM
  • Torontonian ya album is spectacular, the drummer is also amazing, i always thought that he set a completely unique atmosphere on the album. As for gabriel, of coarse, he is brilliant! however i'm much more impressed with his vocal abilities and range, which in my opinion sound better in the links than on the lp's! He manages to get all the high notes with incredible precision!
    February 17 04:14 PM
  • Torontonian hey jethro, glad to see that a love supreme rating. i really love that album! anyway, i also checked both of the links you sent me, both are great, gabriels voice is really good in the lamb link!
    February 17 04:36 AM
  • Friday13th Glad to hear, Jethro! We all need that reassuring conversation with another believer every now and then...and a little prog on the side too :D God works in remarkable ways.
    February 15 10:23 PM
  • Friday13th haha maybe I'm too optimistic. I'm sure you'd agree some of the Illuminati theories are overblown, but I can't say it's all false with certainty. What I do know is the ultimate conspiracy is for the hearts of humans with satan behind it all, and all others are supporting roles to the one certain problem. When conspiracy theorists use seemingly planned scenarios as evidence, it just shows me that satan is running the show. Best I know to do is trust that God will protect us till the end.
    February 15 07:13 PM
  • Friday13th Yeah, gotta keep watch on things like that. I don't know enough about the example you're talking about, but I'll look into it. I do believe the mark will be a very clear rejection of Jesus on top of the physical aspect, so I don't think you have to worry about being marked unwittingly or something along those lines. But yeah I oppose big-brother government kind of stuff purely from a political viewpoint too.
    February 15 03:37 PM
  • Friday13th No problem, likewise!
    February 14 12:59 PM
  • Friday13th I attend Bible studies, and yes I study a lot! I can get a bit obsessive about understanding everything and defending the logic behind it. I'm studying law so that must have to do with it. I have the blessing of a family and a few friends who believe too. I also want to encourage you that 1 Corinthians 7:12-16 and I believe other verses make it clear that one single believer in a family makes such a difference bringing the rest to believe. They're going to see it one day, just keep asking God.
    February 13 05:00 PM
  • Torontonian ya, genesis and steve hackett have been on my rotation a lot lately! i think you'll dig a love supreme, its extremely progressive and ambitious and has incredible musicianship. And thanks for the link, the only issue i have with lamb is that i think the production could be a little better, so im sure it sounds better live!
    February 8 06:32 PM
  • Torontonian sup jethro, Lamb finally grew on me. i can't get enough of it at the moment. Hey, i see you dig john coltrane, you should listen to "a love supreme", which is one of the best albums ever!
    February 8 04:20 PM
  • Snowdog808 Hi Jethro. Would you be able to tell me of a Zeuhl band that I would like not named Magma. I loved 1001 Centigrades a whole lot, so I think a deeper dive into the subgenre is warranted.
    January 22 06:46 PM
  • Onirium They do draw inspiration from a lot of other bands of the era, but they do it so well it's certainly forgettable in the end. Thanks for the link, that was a great song. The only other album of theirs I'm familiar with is the debut, which is also excellent, but I might check out Old Love Dies Hard too as it seems great.
    January 17 11:33 PM
  • Onirium I agree Mister Ten Percent has some awesome moments, but I feel its instrumental sections are a little less inspired. But the more melodic second half is brilliant, I'm always loving some organ-driven prog, plus it kind of recalls Genesis at times. I agree with you on the highlights of Spartacus, and the only thing I think I miss in Double Dimple is a pompous synth riff like in March of the Eternal City.
    January 17 01:09 PM
  • Onirium Double Dimple finally clicked, it took a while, but I now definitely agree with you that it's much more consistent than Spartacus. The title-track is especially well-written and amazingly performed, and I'm really loving the melodic work on the album.
    January 16 11:17 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman It was like the AOTY for the community, it surprises me you didn't know about it hahah
    January 10 01:00 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman It seems you haven't checked Casualties of Cool yet, dude. That amazes me
    January 8 10:34 PM
  • Friday13th It's coming, I'm itching to spin that vinyl! The accent is not terribly thick...I think the singing sounds great.
    January 2 11:00 PM
  • Friday13th heck yeah, prog 4 life...YOLO!
    January 2 10:02 PM
  • Friday13th I know, right? I showed my brother who's not that keen on "old" music and he said yeah, it sounds like something Skrillex would be playing...or you know, let his laptop play haha
    January 2 09:39 PM
  • Friday13th http://youtu.be/YZyVCPNSKAw
    January 2 08:38 PM
  • Friday13th Agreed, unfortunately it's not always very interesting :p I do really like Tangerine Dream though. I was wondering because if you like early electronic more on the lines of Kraftwerk then you should check this Tony Mcphee song my dad showed me. Most his stuff is bluesy and not interesting really, but "The Hunt" has some really cool synths and at about 3:30 it goes into this crazy dub beat that is probably the oldest example of the modern EDM sound I've found. Just to school them youngsters :D
    January 2 08:36 PM
  • Friday13th Yeah, another great cheap vinyl find. Are you into electronic stuff like Berlin School?
    January 2 07:11 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman It has one of the sexiest sax I've ever heard actually
    December 20 07:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Glad you liked Catapilla, didn't thought most people would like it since it is a little bit repetitive and veeeeeery dense, you need to be on a special mood for it
    December 20 07:25 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Oh yeah thanks!, Changes is actually impressive I might review in the next days, it creates an excellent atmosphere. If you go back to Los Jaivas you should check their homonym (less proggier and more rock oriented but still a classic) and Obras which might be a little difficult to digest thanks to its lenght but it still awesome
    December 20 06:53 PM
  • Torontonian thanks man! will definetly make them a priority.
    December 8 08:19 PM
  • Torontonian No problem at all man! Sweet! what album do you suggest i start with?
    December 8 08:08 PM
  • Torontonian ya, i was just curious because you seem to discuss a lot of other bands much more than tull. Maneige eh? what are they like? never heard of them.
    December 8 07:34 PM
  • Torontonian is jethro tull your favourite band?
    December 8 07:16 PM
  • Friday13th Oh I see haha, happened to me too. You're welcome, man!
    December 3 12:18 AM
  • Onirium Hey, check that out, I think you might find stuff you'd dig: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=1042401
    November 30 06:47 PM
  • Frippertronics hey, if you're up for a challenge and feel like writing something that may end up being out of your comfort zone, then this game may be the thing for you. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=972683
    November 30 06:26 PM
  • Torontonian https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x73JX0B-MikHave you heard this song? an incredible song on a somewhat inconsistent album (hope for the future is the worst song ever), so unfortunately not everyone has heard it. THey played it at the last marillion weekend they had in montreal i think.
    November 22 08:12 PM
  • Torontonian they are playing marbles, anoraknophobia, and B R A V E in their entirety. I would honestly kill to see that.
    November 22 05:07 PM
  • Torontonian Do u like*
    November 22 05:04 PM
  • Torontonian Marillion is having 3 concerts in Montreal in April. Do u. Like Hogarth marillion?
    November 22 05:03 PM
  • OmairSh Khan also collaborated with Eddie Vedder for two songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvxmVqLlZsg
    November 21 11:25 PM
  • OmairSh Yup I saw the edit. And yeah Jeff said those words during the interview. Here's the link to the interview if you're interested http://thethingaboutthisis.blogspot.ca/2008/06/ye-jo-jeff-buckley-hai.html
    November 21 11:20 PM
  • OmairSh And actually Buckley was really obsessed and knew the content of Khan's lyrics and poetry, which I though was really cool. I don't think he knew each exact word, but he had an understanding of what the songs were about.
    November 21 10:54 PM
  • OmairSh I know right, what a performance, RIP. Yeah he loved Khan, as he mentioned in his cover, he listened to him daily. Sadly they both passed away months apart. He had the opportunity to interview Khan and when asked about the music he said "It saved my life. I was in a very bad place." It was a cool interview. Pretty fascinating how the lives of such talents intertwine.
    November 21 10:48 PM
  • OmairSh No problemo Jethro, glad you're enjoying Khan's stuff :-). Tony Rich, Natalie Merchant, Gloria Estefan and Joan Osborne are in the "In your eyes" performance. My youtube channel?! Oh no! I need to hide now haha. Thanks, I do love humour. And "humour" is the British spelling, see your English is actually good since you're using the proper spelling, not the American one :-D. And of course you're one of the coolest users on this site :-).
    November 21 09:50 PM
  • OmairSh Sorry for all the links but I love this video. Jeff Buckley does an incredible job for someone who doesn't even speak the language, my mind was blown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysIK-cMhD-s
    November 21 08:56 PM
  • OmairSh Actually this is a better version of Signal to noise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OHw7Rqa13U, they also performed here together https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eq2st8e_IQ. Peter's the reason Nusrat gained some international recognition. He had actually performed in around 40 countries.
    November 21 08:30 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah he featured on Signal to Noise, they performed it live together as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdSXvipXxk8. Nusrat was on one song off of Passion, which is the soundtrack for ''The Last Temptation of Christ''. It's the title track actually, and the haunting atmosphere plus Nusrat's wails give me goosebumps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h961F-vatKM
    November 21 08:16 PM
  • OmairSh Thanks Jethro, I really like how open minded you are about music. Oh yeah he's had an incredibly prolific career. While a lot of his albums are pure Pakistani classical in nature (Qawwali), he was different from other classical singers in that he liked to explore other genres. And it's great that Peter Gabriel was a fan since he released a few albums on his label like you observed. Peter and Nusrat did record a few songs together sporadically, and at least we have those songs.
    November 21 07:25 PM
  • OmairSh I'm planning to review one of his collaborations with Michael Brooke. Peter Gabriel actually suggested the 2 to work together and they released 2 world music/fusion albums. The second link is a song from their second album called Night Songs
    November 21 04:57 PM
  • OmairSh Unfortunately he passed away in 97. He was rumoured to have a near 6 octave vocal range. But it was his distinct voice and strong emotion that really made him so loved. I wish Peter Gabriel would have done a complete album with him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TprJfdzWMIc, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9txoSYr9nFo.
    November 21 04:54 PM
  • OmairSh 2 legends collaborate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tH6D6anoSo
    November 20 10:07 PM
  • Torontonian anyway, simply put, you should definetly see him!!!!!!!!!
    November 18 03:55 PM
  • Torontonian Nah man, you understood correctly, i should have been more specific. But they had a comeback tour a few years back i think, so one can only hope for another one(not probable though). I was just trying to say that one should grasp the opportunity to see him if they can,since there will probably not be many other opportunities in the future.
    November 18 03:52 PM
  • Torontonian ya, not to mention the great special guests. i was very impressed with it. in regards to the S.H concert(s) i can't make it unfortuately. the closest one to me is at cleveland and its like a 4 hour drive and it falls on a tuesday , if i remember correctly :(. if you get the chance, you should definetly go! I'm not sure S.H or genesis will do very many more tours!
    November 18 05:12 AM
  • Torontonian hey! have you heard this? one of the best live albums ever. I like the songs on this better than the ones on the actual album, especially the foxtrot ones. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j8JkNq_Ilq8
    November 17 03:41 PM
  • Torontonian awesome man, hope you dig
    November 5 07:39 PM
  • Torontonian https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6ABF198AC7B10FFC I hope this is alright! Its the best i've been able to find and i've looked several times before.
    November 5 06:37 PM
  • JamieTwort Sweet dude, glad you're enjoying some Cohen. He's easily one of the greatest lyricists ever along with Dylan. Haha yeah I can imagine it being a bit frustrating listening to an artist who's most famous for his his lyrics, singing in a foreign language.
    October 25 03:33 AM
  • Torontonian Good track. ANd IMF is on my To-do list if it's anywhere as good as BOF. Cheers.
    September 29 10:35 PM
  • Frippertronics no prob - no rush
    September 29 05:33 PM
  • beefshoes I meant the tu/vous forms. My professor and my old high school french teacher both give (and gave) me the impression that younger people use the tu form almost exclusively. Do they also chat in the vous form from your experience.
    September 29 05:19 PM
  • Torontonian Hey Birds of Fire was really awesome. Just wanted to let you know i rly liked. I wasn't to keen the first listen but 2nd was very enjoyable. Rly unique band. Thnx for the Rec!
    September 29 03:45 PM
  • Frippertronics just gonna leave this here if you're interested: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/64425/The-Enid-The-Spell/
    September 29 03:44 PM
  • beefshoes Thanks for the examples! Yeah, my professor tests on both formal and informal French. I'm not sure how often I'd need to speak French that is that formal unless I went to a francophone area and spoke to older people, but I suppose it's still good to know.
