  • Snowdog808 Yes, it was such a wonderful track! I love both tracks on the second record especially.
    November 4 01:16 PM
  • Snowdog808 Thank you for describing X to me Friday! I really liked it as you can currently see on my profile.
    November 2 09:16 PM
  • altertide0 and thanks, I'll try these
    October 26 06:19 AM
  • altertide0 what i meant is that great melodies are not enough to make a great record and no melodies don't necessarily mean your record is bad. I mean The Beatles, Buffalo Springfield, U2, Riverside etc. all have much better melodies than Diamanda Galas, Red Krayola, Tim Buckley or Faust but I don't consider them nearly as great. But of course an original record with good melodies beats an equally original record with no melodies.
    October 26 06:13 AM
  • Snowdog808 Nice to see you liked that soundtrack you rated. I honestly think Ian Gillan fit in immensely better in that cast than in his album with Black Sabbath.
    October 3 04:59 PM
  • Snowdog808 I saw Rush in Bristow, Virginia, and it was absolutely killer to hear representitives from all 8 of their first eight albums! Aside from the vocals, they still sound as fresh as back then!
    July 3 03:56 PM
  • Snowdog808 Good morning Friday. How did you like seeing Rush and Judas Priest?
    July 3 08:53 AM
  • Britch2tiger Out of the 4.5/5 Rishloo albums, I admit ranking Living as Ghosts my 3rd favorite of the last 3 albums - where Feathergun was more mainstreamed and gained my interest. But Eidolon is their magnum opus as of yet.
    June 29 12:59 AM
  • Britch2tiger Noticed you are into prog, w/ an impressive ratings-to-objectivity ratio (very solid). Wondering your thoughts on Rishloo? If you gain an interest, I recommend listening to their albums in the following order: Feathergun -

  • Flugmorph at least as long as you know your genres hehe
    June 5 02:43 PM
  • Flugmorph yeah probably, but its just so much more interesting
    June 5 02:42 PM
  • Flugmorph your type of participating list is way better than mine were, cant even compare hehe
    June 5 02:37 PM
  • OmairSh So you weren't lying when you said you didn't love Bilateral :-P
    June 4 11:49 PM
  • OmairSh
    May 5 11:29 PM
  • wtferrothorn Yeah, I knew he sampled them. I'm always just looking for something new to listen too; which is probably why my list of bands/albums to listen to is never ending lol
    April 12 12:45 PM
  • Frippertronics CPL 5 9 3 H
    March 30 09:42 PM
  • Frippertronics yeah that's a good one, the two before it are decent tho.
    March 30 05:21 PM
  • Frippertronics no prob man, first four are great, Siren is overrated as hell, the others I haven't heard in a bit to say anything about them
    March 30 05:10 PM
  • Frippertronics go in order
    March 30 05:02 PM
  • Frippertronics oh shi
    March 30 04:56 PM
  • Frippertronics but look what happened to that gimmick
    March 30 04:37 PM
  • Frippertronics 3.5 for NP do you wanna lose yr right to prog?
    March 30 04:25 PM
  • Frippertronics you FOOOOOL
    March 30 03:10 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Heard u liked these
    March 25 12:07 AM
  • TWIGtheWONDERKID You might like this one; it's a new psych release with that classic '60s sound, Levitation Room - Minds of Our Own:
    March 18 12:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Yeah, one of my favorite instrumentals, goes from heavy riffing to beautiful folk, La Conquistada is also awesome; one of the most startling ballads I've heard. Sadly, some of the other songs go on in a more folky style that I get that not everyone will like
    March 16 05:51 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Sounds like a pretty cool psychedelic-pop album, it has a great instrumentation, I'll dig it more for sure. I see you checked Los Jaivas eponymous, glad you liked it!
    March 16 04:50 PM
  • LunaticSoul 3.5* I misclicked. ahahah man you got me. I was about to try to open a conversation on why Fragile in my opinion is better if you exclude some of the fillers (already the line-up everybody loves to love, huge step up from prev discs, less annoying Jon)
    March 9 07:31 AM
  • jacobclark512 Hit me up with some Christian rock recommendations.
    March 3 01:54 PM
  • adr damn a 3 for After the Gold Rush :/
    February 22 04:30 PM
  • Frippertronics forgot to link btw,-A-True-Star/ i'm on a roll
    February 20 12:25 AM
  • Frippertronics hey man, i never did ask if you had any enid records? I got the stuff up to The Spell (well the spell is showing up tomorrow), and the collection is still growing.
    February 19 09:59 PM
  • Frippertronics digging that enid rating
    February 19 09:10 PM
  • Jethro42 Man it's incredible how far you can go with 3 bucks haha. Nice shot bro! I don't remember how ''It's a Beautiful Day'' sounds, will check. You can't go wrong with Second Contribution, a masterpiece of folk rock, and if you dig Enigmatic Ocean, you should take a look to ''Mystical Adventures'', ''Imaginary Voyage'' and ''Cosmic Messenger''. ''Jean-Luc Ponty Live'' is fantastic as well. The man is prolific and skillfull. He knows how to charm with his violin.
    February 19 04:56 PM
  • Jethro42 I really like the way you're putting light through these dark subjects. It makes it all appear like a scarecrow. You wouldn't guess, but you take some weight off of my shoulders. I just decided to stop being afraid of things I don't have control of. Anyway, most of our fears never manifest. ''The Lord is my Shepherd, I will miss nothing'' (Google translation)
    February 15 07:39 PM
  • Jethro42 It's a conspiratorial organization which acts in the shadow of power, controlling world affairs through governments, banks and major multinational companies and has for goal the establishment of the new world order. If they are really active, d?mocraty is largely threatened, and Big Brother settling is very near. And I think that the ''chip under the skin'' thing would have something to do with it.
    February 15 07:13 PM
  • Jethro42 You are really optimistic, and I like the way you're thinking. As for the Big-Brother form of govrnment, I'm inclined to believe about a mighty secret world who has a significant influence behind the government decisions, and I named the Illuminati, or the Freemason...
    February 15 06:53 PM
  • Jethro42 Kudos for your law studying. I encourage you to keep it up. On another topic, it seems that something is coming soon; The mark of the beast installed under the skin. How do the Christians can escape from that fatal curse? It's so scary. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Hope the Church of the Lord will be moved to the Heaven before it happens!...
    February 15 02:03 PM
  • Jethro42 I was to reply to you, but I have to go for now. See you tomorrow, my friend. I appreciate all the sharing with you.
    February 13 08:32 PM
  • You're right, it's not that I rejected my entourage, it's more like I was rejected, and even persecuted by some work's colleague. People around me didn't appreciate when I was talking about God. It's not always a fine line to be a God child (enfant de Dieu). I often asked myself ''Why am I the only one saved inside my entire family at large?'' I still can't believe it.I also noticed your knowledge about the God's things. Do you assist to some bible studies?
    February 13 03:11 PM
  • Atari hey man, i think you might really dig Franz Schubert if you're still looking for more romantic era classical
    January 19 01:07 PM
  • ADanceReturns I didn't know gnidrolog, Asia Minor or finch before you made that obscure prog thingy thanks dude
    January 16 07:13 PM
  • Onirium I'm not very familiar with Schoenberg, although I remember really liking Pierrot Lunaire and some of his piano compositions when I heard them. That period of classical music is so rich and interesting, there's always plenty of stuff to discover.
    January 15 09:59 PM
  • Onirium Damn, I didn't realize the elimination round was already over. I'm definitely voting this time, don't worry! Also, where are you in your classical jams? ;)
    January 15 08:48 PM
  • Mythodea Yup, I'm Greek. I'm not sure how this list is done if I am to contribute. Do I just recommend you stuff with a small description?
    January 12 06:44 AM
  • Mythodea Hey, man! I'm so glad I found your lists on obscure prog rock. This is a great thing for people searching everything they can find on this genre. I was going to recomend you Ozric Tentacles, but I see you've already rated two of their albums. Anyway, have a nice life.
    January 11 05:56 PM
  • Torontonian Thanks
    January 10 12:18 PM
  • Torontonian oh damn, just realized you already rated it! :p. oh well, i still think it would be a good edition to one of your lists. I gotta step up my prog game....
    January 10 12:32 AM
  • Torontonian Hey have you heard of Il Baletto di Bronzo? Its pretty great RPI, in case you wanna put it on your list or listen to it i highly recommend it!
    January 10 12:10 AM
  • LordePots on it
    January 5 10:39 PM
  • Jethro42 I can't wait to see with which one you're gonna match up my Triumvirat. Btw, as an English speaker, do you find that the German accent of the vocals is a weakness to their overall sound?
    January 2 10:36 PM
  • Jethro42 Let's prog and rock'n roll hard! We know what we like and I like what I know :D
    January 2 09:57 PM
  • Jethro42 Nice track. It's not all electronic though. It contains some authentic moog synthesizer and organs and stuff. What makes me hate electronic music is the random and unfocused sonorities and the drum machines. Thanks for that track. It comes from the 70s...hard to believe.
    January 2 09:14 PM
  • Jethro42 Unfortunately not. I'm not a connoisseur of that genre. The further I went is some Brian Eno stuff or some late Radiohead (and/or Thom Yorke)...oh and Tangerine Dream of course. Are Berlin School worth a listen?
    January 2 07:30 PM
  • Jethro42 I see you're digging J-M Jarre. Oxygen 1V is really addictive. I have to revisit that beautiful music!
    January 2 07:07 PM
  • metalheadrunner Hey Friday. Thanks for the advice. I wasn't sure that the first paragraph was such a great idea after I put up the review, but I wanted to see what someone thought about it. Yeah I mean their influences though. They seem to be really influenced by Skillet and Disciple, and a little bit of Red. I should've put that in there though, I'll probably go back and edit it.
    December 28 08:05 PM
  • Mad. That is exactly what I need to do
    December 28 04:33 PM
  • SCREAM! Working on figuring that out now. Was out with relatives on the 26th and at a wedding yesterday so I haven't had much time to jam unfortunately!
    December 28 01:46 PM
  • menawati will do
    December 28 06:26 AM
  • Mad. Agh thanks for the reminder, I've been slacking
    December 27 06:49 PM
  • SharkTooth sorry 'bout dat, will get to it asap
    December 27 03:48 PM
  • SharkTooth Hey man, just so when my album's round comes, here's the stream:!/playlist/Lucifer s Friend Banquet/103220272
    December 22 01:18 PM

    December 18 01:32 PM
  • Frippertronics I uploaded all the albums up to The Spell on soundcloud. Here's SWTWC:
    December 17 08:34 PM
  • Frippertronics will do when I get off work that night
    December 16 10:57 PM
  • Frippertronics yeah, I'll choose Something Wicked. Reason: The best prog album of the 1980s outside Discipline and Dun. Not excessive in any sense, and is the perfect length for a progressive rock album.
    December 16 10:09 PM
  • Frippertronics alright, I may go for either Something Wicked or their most recent one. Will get back to you on that.
    December 14 07:08 PM
  • Frippertronics may be at work during the nominations for your list on Thursday, so if you're fine with adding In The Region of the Summer Stars as a nominee, it'd be appreciated. I'll add a reason for it being nominated (like the albums from the previous list) when I get off work.
    December 14 06:42 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I summon you
    December 6 01:37 PM
  • BlindingDarkness Yea dude Symphony X is great! I listened to a few songs and I enjoyed my time :D
    December 4 10:49 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello you! Just to say that my son (BlindingDarkness) did reply to your comment, but into HIS shoutbox. Communication is hard to get that way hahah but he might correct it as soon as he can. I told him the way it works yesterday. And thanks to your kind words about me. I'm flattered. Ciao man.
    December 2 07:09 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I've heard about them, don't know why I haven't checked them yet since I really enjoy flamenco, I think I'll download El Patio since it seems pretty cool
    November 10 07:05 PM
  • Snowdog808 This seriously sounds amazing! They really should notate this and expose many advanced pianists to the genius of early Genesis.
    October 21 01:40 PM
  • Torontonian "lol Sgt Peppers actually opened the doors for all prog and Radiohead just made it mainstream again. Wooptidoo. "A Day in the Life" is arguably the first prog song. Not saying that warrants its place on the list because all in all it's a psych-pop album. Neither are prog but lol at OK Computer being more important to prog. Just admit it now, you guys voted Raven into the top 10 haha" I thought we were buds :(
    October 5 08:48 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Happens to me a lot, relax hahah
    September 11 07:04 PM
  • Friday13th Yeah dude. Some of the hits I've heard (like "Doo Wa Ditty Ditty" and the later "Blinded By the Light) are either covers or just plain bad, but so far I've heard some great 60s psych pop, and later they have some fusion and prog albums.
    September 11 06:56 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman My dad has rec'd me Manfred Mann many times, maybe I should start listening to them?
    September 11 06:53 PM
  • HeavyMetal25 Well if you say so about the other albums.
    August 20 02:31 AM
  • Hawks Check the link that Meat sent me it works. m/
    July 17 01:04 AM
  • conesmoke "Edit: "I rrrrrrrepresent...""lol. very nice
    July 15 12:47 AM
  • tawnyAnt guilty as charged - I thought I'd rank the best of 70s chart as a way of reminding myself of what I adored about that era, so if a bunch of blues or blues rock-based prog gets slated by yours truly then all I can say is sorry ;)
    July 6 05:30 AM
  • manosg Awesome man, hope you dig the album!
    June 30 01:09 PM
  • manosg Hey man, I was wondering if you have checked Donovan as I think it's right up your alley. If you haven't, Sunshine Superman is a great album.
    June 30 11:33 AM
  • fallenbird Happy Birthday Friday13th!
    June 13 10:56 PM
  • stranger clever girl
    June 7 12:32 AM
  • dannyboy89 Lol dude, will check.
    June 5 11:42 PM
  • dannyboy89 Agreed man, Clive was a fantastic drummer and Harris was a talented bassist as well. Nicko was pretty good too, although I lean more towards Clive. RIP hard man, I believe it's like 2-3 years since he passed away.
    June 2 08:48 PM
  • dannyboy89 Maiden are sweet too, but tbh I'm not a big fan of their guitar work, which is something I highly value in a band. It ain't the be all-end all ofc, but it does affect how high a band ranks for me.
    June 2 08:37 PM
  • dannyboy89 I love Sabbath, but I'm too much of a Priest fanboy. Glenn and KK inspire me too much as an amateur guitarist.
    June 2 08:32 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Well that guy only sings 2 or 3 songs in Zappa's entire catalogue. I actually kind of like it. If you liked the music check Zappa's album Over-Nite Sensation. The rest of the album is of the same quality and a 5 of mine.
    May 21 08:23 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Contains one of my favorite guitar solos ever. The voice is odd, but i like it, I hope you do too.
    May 21 06:59 PM
  • dannyboy89 \M/ Love that riff too much man.
    May 18 06:13 PM
  • dannyboy89 I took a look at your fave Priest songs, sweet list man. I saw you had BtRoD as your fave, which is alright since it rules. My fave Priest song is Tyrant.
    May 18 01:20 PM
  • spookynewghostfriend i like ur games they are creative and fun pls do one that is electronic maybe =}
    May 2 03:05 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Eventually man, eventually. I'm still obsessing over The Kick Inside y'know.
    April 27 12:17 AM
  • zakalwe Phew. Good choice dude!
    April 22 06:54 PM
  • Keyblade Damn, I have to listen to em first haha
    April 16 07:09 AM
  • Salvidian The deed has been done.
    April 15 09:48 PM
  • Salvidian I went ahead and listened to the all the competitors. I've only voted once because, frankly, it's hard to choose. However, I'll vote right now because the current matchup isn't a hard choice.
    April 15 09:42 PM
  • KILL yea i know but i dont wana listen to music i dont wana jam and i could be doing better stuff like playing trim simulator 2014
    April 9 01:07 PM
  • KILL i cant be arsed to listen to all those records sorry!!!!!
    April 9 12:43 PM
  • GrandpaSeth3000 dang whats up old man? - gs3k
    April 4 11:31 PM
  • dannyboy89 Interesting. Well I know that JT isn't fond of GG, and manosg admitted that he's not the biggest Rush fan. As I said on that voting thread, Yes is def my least fave. I'd just rather jam other bands, Yes is a band that I'd prob prefer in small doses.
    April 4 02:32 PM
  • dannyboy89 Dude, I'm curious, out of the big 70's prog bands, which one do you like the least?
    April 4 02:01 PM
  • dannyboy89 I saw your soundoff for The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. I think I agree: the first half is great, but the 2nd half has some filler. Gonna jam it again later to rate it, but I think I prefer SEBtP.
    February 21 11:39 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I'm glad you liked Waka/Jawaka!
    February 16 09:43 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Tell me how you like them!
    February 14 08:26 PM
  • pedro70512 Thanks, I look forward to your thoughts on it.
    February 14 12:13 AM
  • pedro70512 Hey, I know this is sorta old news but I thought about your soundoff and decided to make the weakest vocal song instrumental. I think it helped a lot because it's a strong instrumental and a nice change of pace. Thanks.
    February 13 08:46 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Sleep Dirt and Waka/Jawaka are two great instrumental Frank Zappa albums you should like if you liked The Grand Wazoo and Hot Rats.
    February 12 10:32 PM
  • pedro70512 Hey, thanks for the feedback. Really appreciated a straight opinion on the album and I'll keep it in mind moving forward.
    January 8 02:23 PM
  • Parallels does philip20 mean anything to you
    October 17 01:38 AM
  • CK Awesome! Btw nice Neutral Milk Hotel rating, I have it at a very low 3.0
    August 19 02:05 PM
  • CK Let me know what you thought of WIM if you ever listen to them. I'm trying to get more people to know about them ^.^
    August 19 12:55 PM
  • BlackDragon I tried to find out if it was coming out on DVD but didn't find anything... you would think it probably would eventually though.
    July 11 04:39 PM
  • BlackDragon Thanks, yours is too! :)
