  • e210013 My comment is on my ELP's review. It seems so big that does not fit in the shoutbox. Sorry.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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
    June 26 03:15 PM
  • altertide0 Thanks! :) I think I'll stay for a while!
    June 22 07:45 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I don't know if I already asked you this but, dude how can you 5 Nothing like the Sun and not checking Ten Summoner's Tale?
    June 21 11:03 PM
  • SoccerRiot I used to be Necrotica/FiveLeavesLeft but decided to start fresh with a new account. I felt like my behavior started getting in the way of my reviewing quality, so I've started again with a new attitude :]
    June 20 04:21 PM
  • 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/
    June 16 10:09 PM
  • Onirium Quelles sont tes impressions sur Love Songs for Robots?
    June 16 09:31 PM
  • Torontonian Hey Jethro! How's it going? I made a genesis list where I ranked lamb. Kind of pointless I guess but I'm curious to see what u think. Summer is genesis season! :D
    May 30 06:36 PM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID Enjoy!
    April 18 09:29 PM
  • 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.
    September 29 03:23 PM
  • beefshoes Hey, I have a question regarding forming questions/negation in French. For less informal situations, you'd form a sentence by doing: 'Est-ce que ils aiment...' , "Recontre-t-il avec..." , et la négation de "N'etudie-t-elle pas souvent" , right? The last example (forming negative questions) is probably the hardest for me, and I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly.
    September 28 09:54 PM
  • Torontonian Gr8! I just found out my dad has a copy of Birds of Fire! SO that will inevitably be jammed tonight. Not sure about the rest of the recs, but i'll def try and make them happen soon. Thnx . man! Oh and btw new Trioscapes is awesome jazz fusion if you're interested.
    September 24 07:30 AM
  • Torontonian Broken english?!?! NO way man! didn't even notice! and thanks once again for the suggestions. I'll try and get my hands on some of those as soon as possible. :)
    September 23 08:26 PM
  • Torontonian Oh and as far as coltrane goes my suggestions are A love supreme and Blue train. Both absolutely immense. especially the latter, which has grown to be my personal favorite coltrane.
    September 23 06:20 PM
  • Torontonian Thanks for the various suggestions! :)
    September 23 06:18 PM
  • Torontonian Glad you liked! ummm not sure, just kinda assumed. But i thought it was rather proggy so i thought it was a safe bet! :)
    September 23 03:46 PM
  • Torontonian Hey. I have a rly great rec if you are interested. It blew me away. I'm fairly certain you will be too. Heres a link if you're interested.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgWMiDMt0Bk

  • JamieTwort Hey dude, thought this might be of interest to you: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=149988 - A list of my favourite Roy Harper songs.
    September 13 01:34 PM
  • Nagrarok Yes, Genesis certainly kept up the prog a bit longer. I've now finally listened to the final 3 GG albums, but sadly they are mostly forgettable. Interview is not too bad and Playing the Fool is very good though.
    September 2 03:30 PM
  • Nagrarok GG's 'I'm Turning Around' from The Missing Piece really reminded me of late 70's Genesis (when Collins first took over lead vocals). When I looked a little further, I found that Wind and Wuthering as well as ...And Then There Were Three were not only recorded around the same time, but also at the same place as that album. In a Dutch studio not too far from where I live, actually! An interesting coincidence.

  • Voivod Pardon mon ami, l'hyperlien est comme suit: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/news/32212/Maya-Beiser-streams-new-album/
    August 21 01:56 PM
  • Voivod Jethro, comment vas-tu mon ami? Tu dois ecouter (quand tu peux, bien sur) le nouveau album d'une celiste Israelienne, elle a adapte des chansons classiques (King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) seulement avec sa cello et de drums.
    August 21 03:41 AM
  • lalchimiste Cool, j'écouterai ça! J'avais bien aimé Stadaconné, bonne écoute!
    July 23 10:20 AM
  • lalchimiste Hello sir, here is an obscure québécois prog gem. It's called Sloche. et voilà : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlkUhrk8MZg J'ai ajouté le groupe à la banque du site.
    July 22 04:54 PM
  • OmairSh No worries, glad you're enjoying it :-). They have so much intensity it's incredible. I love how seamlessly they blend so many genres. I haven't tried comparing them with any other band, mostly because it's so difficult to. I guess you could say POS because of their diversity. Their latest 3 albums are all good
    July 12 04:25 PM
  • JamieTwort I'm not really an expert when it comes to that sort of thing either to be honest. I'd recommend buying it if you were really interested but I'm not sure how often you purchase physical copies these days. The packaging with the book is great.
    July 10 04:13 PM
  • JamieTwort No sorry dude I haven't I'm afraid. I have the psychical copy (which comes with an 80 page book and is very nice btw).
    July 10 04:04 PM
  • JamieTwort Hey Jethro, have you heard the Steven Wilson remix of Tull's A Passion Play yet? If not I strongly urge you to do so. He's even restored a previously unheard section of the album that was cut out of the original. It also includes a Wilson remix of The Chateau D'isaster Tapes which is a great improvement over the Night Cap version in terms of sound quality, plus it's great to hear it in the order that it was recorded in as opposed to the revised order of the version on Night Cap.

  • Frippertronics ah, forgot to let you know about this: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/62788/The-Flaming-Lips-7-Skies-H3/
    June 17 09:12 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Try Zappa's album Sleep Dirt. It's definitely up your alley. Or maybe One Size Fits All, which is proggy.
    June 17 07:58 PM
  • Nagrarok Finally able to move forward with the writing again. Review should get finished today. Cheers mate ;)
    May 14 04:35 AM
  • menawati yes great song, that one, Alice, Yoga and betrayed were my favourites, i only listened twice so far though
    May 11 04:55 PM
  • menawati no, were ok but didnt make me want to listen again those two
    May 11 04:40 PM
  • menawati haha i have that page open on one of my tabs right now i was using it to choose what to listen to
    May 11 04:34 PM
  • menawati yes, Over is brilliant but i didnt like Nadir much, Future Now and PH7 were average but i really liked Black Box, want to try that Loops and Reels thing its sposed to be very experimental
    May 11 04:29 PM
  • menawati just tried Black Box by Hammill, fk me the man's amazing, truly ahead of his time, Radiohead copied him for sure with their blippy electronic stuff, and Fogwalking and Flight are incredible
    May 11 04:09 PM
  • Frippertronics and another rec: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6UoYi1EADs
    May 8 06:57 PM
  • Frippertronics a personal triumph concerning my writing: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/62206/Swans-To-Be-Kind/
    May 8 06:49 PM
  • Nagrarok I hate that I'm not getting around to finishing the MB review, but unfortunately it'll have to wait a little longer since I'm going away for the weekend. Next week should be a little less busy for me though!
    May 8 03:05 PM
  • Frippertronics I was telling MrSirLordGentleman or whatever his name that he should check out the albums if he wished to.
    May 7 08:07 PM
  • Frippertronics nice to hear, they're both solid releases
    May 7 07:56 PM
  • menawati yeah, cant take it any more though he's like a freight train im off to bed haha
    May 6 08:27 PM
  • menawati man, this guy on the IQ thread is prog mad, check him out haha
    May 6 08:16 PM
  • menawati yes i got the 12 inch single of that barbell thing as well as LPs of Lush Attic and The Wake, I was totally into IQ and Marillion as a teen in the 80s (as well as all the 70s prog ofc)
    May 5 05:54 PM
  • menawati neo-prog dub reggae from IQ, i got the 12" single of this haha (it's awful)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smTgDwkyNow
    May 5 03:28 PM
  • Frippertronics hey it's no problem, i'm not too big on the whole psych stuff in the first place. I'll try and check some of the stuff in the contest however.
    May 4 06:14 PM
  • Frippertronics never ceased to stop? oh, maybe it's because it's the whole album in one video?
    May 4 06:10 PM
  • Frippertronics no prob, i kind of hated it at first, but it grew on me after a few listens
    May 1 11:05 PM
  • Frippertronics here we go, Playing Hide and Seek with the Ghosts of Dawn (the KC cover album that the Flips did with a few other groups): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXvuGPij0wo
    May 1 10:58 PM
  • Frippertronics i couldn't find Heady Fwends, so I'm going to check if their cover album of ITCOTCK is on Youtube.
    May 1 10:56 PM
  • Frippertronics here's 7 Skies H3, a 50 minute condensed version of their 24-hr long song, and released two weeks ago on Record Store Day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2T1611WGjM
    May 1 10:56 PM
  • Frippertronics The Flaming Lips
    May 1 10:50 PM
  • Frippertronics ah, that's the one thing I thought about had you not listened to any of their stuff, I was just going to rec California. Unrelated, how was the two Flips albums I sent you?
    May 1 10:42 PM
  • Frippertronics so, have you heard any Mr. Bungle?
    May 1 10:33 PM
  • menawati hmm bits of prog i spose but more like bluesy psych most of it ?
    May 1 06:55 PM
  • menawati you could enter Hypnos 69 mate i remember you liking that ?
    May 1 06:47 PM
  • menawati http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iojP4wCyTiMmore RPI, think it might be your style
    May 1 05:05 PM
  • Nagrarok As usual I've had too little time, but the first few paragraphs are finished at least. It'll be on its way soon enough.
    May 1 09:51 AM
  • menawati success then, glad to hear it
    April 30 04:18 PM
  • menawati sent all 15 as single tracks, they were numbered ego 1 ego 2 etc, didnt have any bounced back to me so they should all come through eventually
    April 27 04:57 PM
  • menawati all sent hope you get it ok
    April 27 04:33 PM
  • Jethro42 I don't know anything about my hotmail limit. I even doubt it could cause some problems while you try to send them (I had a bad experience in the past with Outlook express while I tried to send a video. I wasnt able to send anything anymore afterwards (stucked). I see you sent to me a first song. Everything is ok by now. Thanks!
    April 27 04:27 PM
  • menawati yes its gone no worries
    April 27 04:16 PM
  • menawati well i got a 25mb limit on gmail so sending 2 at a time but getting rejected by hotmail, dont know what your limit is
    April 27 04:10 PM
  • menawati can send in chunks of you want no problem only takes a minute
    April 27 03:53 PM
  • menawati lol i'll just send you a big fat email if you want, should have done thatin the first place
    April 27 03:47 PM
  • menawati so you set up gmail and got a google account, now you need to download google drive and use your google account with that and you are set - if you go to drive.google.com there should be a link to download it
    April 27 03:27 PM
  • menawati go to mail.google.com it should come up with a welcome email or something
    April 27 03:15 PM
  • menawati was just attempting to be 21st century you know haha
    April 27 02:51 PM
  • menawati yes i can just send you an email with a big fat attachment if you want
    April 27 02:51 PM
  • menawati you dont have to download anything for gmail it's all web browser based, nothing goes on your own pc so it wont conflict with anything else, you just sign up and thats it, the google drive yes you download a small client
    April 27 02:41 PM
  • menawati man jethro, of course not, i have 4 (use one for junk, one for business etc), some people have 10 or so, having a google account is pretty useful really, you get free google drive, calendars, mail, google music etc and if you ever get an android phone or tablet it all syncs, millions of people use it
    April 27 02:26 PM
  • menawati yeah you need a google account, its all free can send you on invite if you give me your email address, i just assumed you had one since it's very popular, cant think of any other way of getting the files to you apart from a big email attachment though
    April 27 02:08 PM
  • menawati "do i have a move to do?" ..... yes, when you have set it all up i basically share the stuff i want you to see and you can download it to your gdrive then copy it anywhere you want, think of it like a bunch of computers at Google that i am saving stuff to which I am granting you access to
    April 27 01:50 PM
  • menawati no mate it's all industry standard google type stuff loads of people use it not dodgy in any way, go to drive.google.com and it'll let you download and install (I'm assuming you got a google mail account but if not thats really easy to set up too)
    April 27 01:48 PM
  • menawati i think i bought it on amazon mp3, the cd was crazy import price, gdrive is just cloud storage - you install it then everything you put into that 'Google Drive' folder on your desktop is mirrored on their servers, I use it for backups of some files but you can also share stuff on it with other gdrive users, it runs off your gmail address so if you set it up i can make those Egonon files available to you, hope that makes sense
    April 27 01:27 PM
  • menawati theres no stream at all but I can share it on google drive or something like that if you want it
    April 27 11:28 AM
  • Frippertronics yeah
    April 25 10:29 PM
  • Frippertronics maybe it was Zappa plays Zappa, the band Dweezil fronts, covering Frank's stuff
    April 25 09:58 PM
  • Frippertronics yeah, i suppose it's no issue. Have you heard Absolutely Free or Sheik Yerbouti?
    April 25 09:10 PM
  • Frippertronics haha oh well, i guess you can get to it on your own time
    April 25 08:53 PM
  • Frippertronics oh, now it all makes sense. you were talking about weasels ripped my flesh! I thought you were talking about Uncle Meat when you mentioned the difference between the links
    April 25 08:21 PM
  • Frippertronics yep, that's the album. A odd variety of tracks that go all over the place without haste.
    April 25 07:26 PM
  • Frippertronics Ah, it makes sense now, no problem. Enjoy mane, it's a hard one to get through on the first try.
    April 25 06:51 PM
  • Frippertronics once more, can you clarify, my apologies. However, the playlist that I sent goes on without fail.
    April 25 06:40 PM
  • Frippertronics and here's one I found, a playlist with all 19 tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If56BNUzhR8
    April 25 06:27 PM
  • Frippertronics yes, the link is the opening track. I'll check for a playlist for it. If not, I will make one for you. Something I didn't think of earlier...
    April 25 06:26 PM
  • Frippertronics no, Uncle Meat is the one I did a 4.5 review for, it's a bit of a challenge to get used to, but once you do, it's one of his best. Unfortunately, there's not a stream of it on youtube, so you may have go elsewhere for it. Another album to check would be Weasels Ripped My Flesh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TcfL84Kgqc
    April 25 06:14 PM
  • Frippertronics well it's jazz fusion prog with the involvement of Zappa and co, I knew you'd dig it. Any chances of checking out Uncle Meat soon?
    April 25 06:00 PM
  • Frippertronics ahaha yeah man, nice rating
    April 25 05:54 PM
  • Frippertronics only place for one person? gonna have to clarify a bit on that, but no prob.
    April 25 05:33 PM
  • Frippertronics yeah, i get ya. Also, forget about downloads, someone already uploaded the album onto YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2T1611WGjM
    April 25 05:24 PM
  • Frippertronics well probably because both were from Record Store Day (2012 and this year respectively). One is a collaboration double album between the Flips and others, the latter is a fifty minute condensed version of the 24 hour long song they did back in 2011. I have a mp3 link to the latter that came with the vinyl for it if you're interested. The other, I'm sure can be found on Youtube.
    April 25 05:04 PM
  • Frippertronics I see you like The Flaming Lips, so I wonder if you heard "The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends" or 7 Skies H3?
    April 25 04:54 PM
  • Nagrarok Oh my, forgotten all about that! Next weekend I should be able to make some time for it.
    April 23 05:03 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, with regards to Bruford, I respect the man, but I tend to prefer drummers with a more informal approach personally. Of course, it's a pet peeve of mine.
    April 21 10:31 PM
  • Onirium It's ok, finally I think I'll just buy it. Also, thanks for putting Sebastian Hardie in the contest, I really enjoyed the listen.
    April 19 05:02 PM
  • Onirium Okay I'll ask him. Thanks!
    April 19 04:31 PM
  • Onirium Hey Jethro, as you're certainly the best Tull expert on Sputnik, you're probably aware than Ian Anderson has a new album out. Do you know if there's any official stream? Because I can't find it anywhere and it seems really good.
    April 19 04:17 PM
  • Frippertronics got a new mothers (zappa) review up since you've been looking for more zappa to check out.
