  • Voivod I couldn't agree more, albeit I also love my punk :-D
    August 15 05:42 AM
  • Voivod Indeed, I have never come across a writing this demeaning about prog rock. For example, listening to almost all ante '80s King Crimson records, is a life changing experience.

  • Voivod Salut Jethro, je crois que tu trouve cet article tres interessant -
    August 12 03:32 AM
  • Divaman It has a good chance to make my Top Ten Albums of the year.
    July 28 03:14 PM
  • Divaman Really liking the new Mostly Autumn album.
    July 28 01:33 AM
  • zakalwe Hello dude. Have you seen that brain records box set? The cerebral sounds of brain records 1972-1979. It's a hell of a thing, absolutely magnificent.
    July 12 12:08 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Haha well you write very well. I've always been able to understand you. I'm younger than you but I enjoy the oldies very much!!
    June 1 08:22 PM
  • CaptainDooRight I've always pictured you as a super cool dude in real life
    June 1 02:59 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I love your passion for the prog!!! I've been through many prog binges but I need to revisit those because I remember liking those and I need to revisit them! Thank you for the recs and man I just listened to Maneige - Self Service and its super good!!!
    May 31 05:09 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Nice I've heard the first two but I saw Finisterre on your list of fav bands so I'll def check that. I need to complete the Maneige discog too!
    May 31 04:19 PM
  • CaptainDooRight hey bro what are you top 3 favorite prog bands of all time, just the best that you can't live without
    May 31 02:47 PM
  • Friday13th Thought of you when I read this joke article lol:

    April 29 12:02 AM
  • Titan Yes, same with my Rangers. We last won a cup the year after you, 1994. At times, it seems like we've been skating with cinder blocks strapped to the ankles haha. Not our year either. Enjoy the rest of the way.
    April 22 02:07 PM
  • Titan are you a habs fan bro?
    April 22 12:59 PM
  • KILL lol dude i aint gonna give you a damn virus! and no it cant be streamed, it needs to be in flac to get the full quality anyway

  • Voivod Salut Jethro j'espere que tu es bien! Je te recommend d'ecouter Skog Under Jord, ils jouent de progressive rock instrumental. Tu peut trouver l'album en Spotify.
    April 4 03:09 AM
  • Divaman I'm so happy you're enjoying them. I listened to the band you recommended me yesterday, and as soon as I heard them, I realized you would probably like Frogg Cafe.
    March 20 11:40 PM
  • Divaman Thanks Jethro. Here's one you might want to check out -- Frogg Cafe. I like some of their music, but they're often too jazz oriented for me. I like progressive rock that's blends rock and classical more than when it blends rock and jazz.
    March 20 01:51 PM
  • Divaman It's sad, but here in the U.S., we never hear anything about European progressive rock bands. Thanks for the recs.
    March 19 02:18 AM
  • Divaman Thanks for the recs. Wasn't sure you were familiar with Nightwish.
    March 15 09:05 PM
  • Divaman I have an album I think you might enjoy -- "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" by Nightwish. It's listed on sputnik as Symphonic Metal, but to me, it's more progressive rock with Celtic and folk elements.
    March 15 02:30 PM
  • OmairSh New list :-)
    March 5 12:58 AM
  • menawati yes i listened, it's better than the first one nice shout
    January 23 02:31 PM
  • menawati did you hear Gandalfs Fist - Clockwork Fable last year ? Amazing concept album, prog-lite neo prog but loads of fun and variety and great voice actors
    January 23 12:27 PM
  • TwigTW That Shamblemaths is great. RYM has it categorized as zeuhl, as well as prog. I'm not exactly sure what zeuhl is, but I'm finding I like albums that have that tag.
    January 19 08:46 AM
  • menawati Nice, I'll check it out
    January 15 07:22 AM
  • TwigTW Thanks Jethro, I knew you would have some favorites . . . You are right. Prog metal isn't exactly my thing, but I am getting more familiar with it through Sputnik. I will give Pain Of Salvation a spin. I will give them all a spin. Thanks so much for the recs!
    January 14 05:07 AM
  • TwigTW Last year I started listening to more jazz, so my prog suffered. If you could rec me your 5 favorite prog albums from last year I would appreciate it.
    January 13 07:51 PM
  • Sabrutin Thank you! Merry Christmas Jethro, be safe and keep proggin'!
    December 25 08:53 AM
  • OmairSh Hey Jethro, thanks man. Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Keep being wise and cool :-D
    December 25 03:00 AM
  • TwigTW Joyeux Noel et bonne annee!
    December 24 12:31 AM
  • e210013 Yeah, Sputnik is an excellent place to practice English, especially when some guys make lengthy reviews, like me. Ah! Ah! Ah!.Merry Christmas,my friend.
    December 23 05:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Same for you man! happy holidays!
    December 23 01:54 PM
  • Friday13th Likewise, Merry Christmas to you too! :D
    December 23 01:35 PM
  • e210013 For who do not know anything about Portuguese and use a translator, the message is perfect. In fact, the translators have improved a lot in the most recent years.Cheers, buddy.
    December 23 01:06 PM
  • e210013 In my youth French was first foreign language at school. I had 5 years of French and only 3 years of English. Times changed my friend. Today, only English is required. The second foreigner language is up to you. You can have Spanish, French, German or even Chinese. I used a translator as a supporter, and despite I'm not feel very comfortable to speak French, I can read and write relatively well.
    December 23 01:05 PM
  • Voivod Merry Christmas Jethro, with good health for you and your family!
    December 23 12:29 PM
  • e210013 Joyeux Noël, mon ami, pour toi et toute ta famille. Et une bonne année en 2017, aussi bien.Cheers.

    November 17 07:38 PM
  • e210013 It's a pleasure to me too, especially because you have also a great knowledge about one of our loves, prog music. Yes, I know Novalis. Despite I'm not an expert on them I've four albums from them, Novalis, Sommerabend, Brandung and Vielleicht Bist Du Ein Clown?. About Eloy, I know them much beter, I even have almost all their albums. I love particularly Ocean and Silent Cries And Mighty Echoes. Anyway, I will accept your recomendations. I don't intend to know everything, haha. Cheers dude.
    October 13 09:00 AM
  • e210013 I'm very glad that you clarified this matter. I understood precisely the contrary. It's really hard to understand all expressions when we are talking or writing in a foreign language. Thanks a lot, man. You has shown to me that you're a real friend and I appreciate it. Once more thanks and I hope continue with your faithfull support. After all, We are both of the same era and faithful fans of prog music. Have a good day too. Cheers.

  • OmairSh It's that time of the year again, coke studio list :-)
    August 23 08:03 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Yeah I noticed, I almost never make it into those lists so it's cool that someone thinks I'm among the coolest users on the site haha
    August 19 02:34 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Damn dude, Eskaton rules hard. The opener and Ecoute are way better than anything I've checked from Magma
    August 10 06:48 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Really? damn, I thought you'd like it. I loved the synths and the guitar though I admit its simplicity at some moments, specially in the drumming. I loved Richard Burton's dialogues though, his voice was certainly soothing as ****
    August 4 08:37 PM
  • TwigTW Better late than never ;-) 'Whole Of The Moon' has always been my favorite Waterboys song . . . Just a heads up, after This Is The Sea and Fisherman's Blues the album quality falls pretty fast imo, so if you decide to check them out, start with those two and work backwards.
    August 3 09:20 PM
  • TwigTW Glad to see someone remembers the Waterboys besides myself. If you asked me in the 80s, I would have said 'This Is The Sea' was their best album. But time has changed my mind, Fisherman's Blues seems the best to me now.
    August 2 09:55 PM
  • TwigTW I took your advice and checked out The Flower Kings' "Stardust We Are". It's a great album. In fact, it's probably two great single albums squeezed into a double. I've listened to it many times now, but I still can't say I've gotten my head completely around it yet--but it's fun listening and discovering. Great Rec, thanks!
    August 2 01:35 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I will check them just by curiosity I suppose. Also, check Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds
    July 30 08:51 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman daaaamn, that harsh? haha, don't get why people love them so much then lol
    July 30 06:47 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman hey dude, have you checked Goblin? I've always been interested in checking them but I've never known what to expect
    July 30 04:10 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman haha it seems like that list is a bit too m/ for my taste tho
    July 29 07:43 PM
  • TwigTW Never heard of Stolt, or The Flower Kings. I'll have to check them out, thanks.
    July 8 08:19 PM
  • TwigTW Have you heard the new Jon Anderson/Stolt album? I wish it was the newest Yes album instead of Heaven And Earth. It's so much better. If you haven't heard it yet, it's here: - Anderson Stolt - Invention Of Knowledge
    July 8 04:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman
    June 30 11:14 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I checked Crac once. I really liked it but y'know. Once you check PFM you expect something truly special from Italy haha
    June 30 08:23 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Have you checked Oregon? My dad told me they were pretty good and as far as I know they used to be pretty big in the jazz fusion movement but it seems like no one knows of them in Sputnik
    June 30 08:07 PM
  • TwigTW " e210013 is probably the elder, followed by myself or...TWIG?" Can't say for sure, but @55yo I believe I am between you and E21.
    June 5 11:11 AM
  • 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
    May 25 06:31 PM
  • 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.
    May 16 06:33 PM
  • 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.
    May 11 09:27 PM
  • 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: 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.
    May 7 05:25 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman check this for some stupidly well performed funk (100% instrumental)
    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" ;)
    April 27 09:12 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman How is it that you haven't commented on Crime of the Century's thread yet?
    April 22 07:10 PM
  • TwigTW 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
  • TwigTW My top prog albums of 2016, roughly ranked--best at the top:
    April 17 10:23 PM
  • TwigTW 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
    March 21 12:14 PM
  • 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 10:58 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You can't tell me this doesn't rule hard
    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 -
    March 15 06:10 PM
  • Frippertronics lemme see what I can do
    March 3 08:44 PM

    February 27 03:41 PM
  • KILL dude what
    February 27 03:28 PM
  • smaugman oh nice! im always up for new prog. are there any in particular you would like to recommend?
    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: 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 20 03:16 PM
  • Friday13th Sure man, which one?

    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?
    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 -
    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 :)
    October 23 06:26 PM
  • OmairSh A great song by POS' Leo, showing his technique and musical sense
    October 21 11:15 PM
  • 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
    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?
    September 1 06:47 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman What do you think about this? 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
    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 -
    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, 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!
    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:
    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
  • TwigTW Enjoy!
    April 18 09:29 PM
  • TwigTW ''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
  • TwigTW 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
  • TwigTW 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
  • TwigTW 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!
    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 (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.
