  • Divaman Hi Wham. I was wondering if you might have a song to contribute to the November Song of the Day list (https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=189442). This month's theme is gifts - a song you like that you were recommended by someone on Sputnik. Thanks.

  • Friday13th You got a vote for the final, Pulsar v. Wobbler? It's a tie right now!
    July 28 04:52 PM
  • Friday13th Last Discovery match! Vote now!
    July 15 04:41 AM
  • Friday13th Hey man, we need your vote for the latest prog match ASAP!
    June 26 04:56 PM
  • Friday13th Fireballet counts. Fever Tree doesn't appear prog enough.
    May 8 03:34 PM
  • Friday13th We can't do those Eloy albums because they have over 30 ratings.
    May 8 03:25 PM
  • bgillesp Yeah, had to pause it before scarlet begonias so I?m gonna finish it out, but it?s certainly not their best. My fav so far is 2/13/70 but I haven?t listened to that many shows yet either
    April 3 08:16 PM
  • bgillesp Sounds good. I?m taking a class on the Dead right now at my university. We just hit ?77 so I?m listening to Cornell as I type this.
    April 3 03:55 PM
  • bgillesp Nice dig. Slowly finding other deadheads around here
    April 2 08:40 PM
  • zakalwe Franklin?s Tower has a hell of a catchy chorus. Roll Away The Dew. Nice!
    February 2 03:03 PM
  • zakalwe Ello dude. Can you recommend one grateful dead song guaranteed to have an impact on first listen?
    February 1 10:19 PM
  • zakalwe Cool! Regarding your neighbour have they been to London recently? It would be interesting to know what they think. Place is the ninth circle of hell gentrified.
    December 21 02:58 PM
  • zakalwe That Londons Burning book looks quality Wham. I?m going to order it. 17 quid for a paperback though!
    December 19 06:53 PM
  • Friday13th lol I'm a bit swamped out of my mind with work. Maybe in the winter I'll manage.
    October 11 03:29 AM
  • RestInPieces e-mail me at stameybt@appstate.edu for the whole list!
    September 18 06:57 PM
  • Friday13th Elimination round, buddy!
    July 26 11:35 PM
  • BenMorrison Let Me In would be a great start for Poobah. Then listen to U.S. Rock (Sounds kinda like Alice Cooper I think) and Steamroller (Their masterpiece of guitar acrobatics).
    July 5 12:53 PM
  • Friday13th Match 5 vote time, bro!
    July 3 01:27 AM
  • Friday13th wham, give me a short description of why you like Ghosts
    May 28 08:37 PM
  • Friday13th lol you can do Stawbs - Ghost. Good choice btw. We did already do Banquet in the "Obscure Prog" tourney. I get what you're trying to do with the separate sides when only half the album is prog, but I can't have people doing that.
    May 26 06:30 PM
  • Friday13th Prog tourney this Monday, Memorial day!
    May 26 03:26 PM
  • Fear I am glad to see someone of like mind friend! Sipping on Earl Gray tea, hypnotized by the fire 'neath my heart...a wondrous and simple way to live!
    December 10 06:12 AM
  • Friday13th Dude, we need that M8 vote!
    November 12 06:35 PM
  • Friday13th Dude, we need your vote for M7!
    November 4 07:04 PM
  • Titan wham bro sorry about your cubs.....something was off with them the entire season yet they still made a solid push.....do or die for my boys tonight, never even expected to be in this position.....does the magic continue???
    October 21 02:13 PM
  • Dedes Hey wham check Ulcerate, they're a really good classic metal band akin to Pentagram and Black Sabbath.
    October 10 07:41 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Which GD do you rate as their best?
    September 26 06:39 PM
  • Frippertronics Something/Anything? is a solid entry but in the long run, I feel it really misrepresents what Todd is about. Solid album nonetheless although it's bookended by albums that are better than it (Ballad/Wizard)
    September 13 07:57 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou Ayo Wham how are ya? I think it came out a few weeks ago.. they got two singles 'The Scheme' and 'The Seven' good stuff!
    September 13 07:55 PM
  • Jethro42 Nice! You just have to go to that link, and say you want to participate.
    September 11 09:04 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey man! Friday13th is preparing another of his prog tourneys. Would you be interested to be a part of it? Please, apply here. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=166576
    September 11 03:14 PM
  • Titan ahhh nice, hope it's a good move for you bro......i've been listening to the new Leprous and Steven Wilson, as far as new music is concerned.....both are pretty good
    September 8 11:01 PM
  • Titan sup bro,haven't been on much......hows you?
    September 7 11:16 PM
  • TheSpaceMan yeah of course, their live stuff is the best!
    July 10 02:49 AM
  • Divaman Sounds great! Thanks!
    June 21 06:48 PM
  • Divaman Any chance of convincing you to go ahead and review one of those first two Monkees albums?
    June 20 06:19 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I'll check, sounds interesting. Yeah, don't worry, I'm never taking any difference in opinion too seriously here, it's all in good humour. I'll def take a closer look at your ratings, always looking for more 60s/70s/80s stuff off the beaten track.
    March 22 02:11 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Damn, you have the most trad taste on the site, and don't get me wrong I'm not saying that's a bad thing
    March 22 11:36 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Yeah Walk in the Blue Light is my fave so far, but I'm only on track 4!
    March 2 03:12 PM
  • RunOfTheMill oh s*** never realised When the Screams Come was that old of a song, rad
    March 2 03:04 PM
  • RunOfTheMill hi wham I'm feeling adventurous, rec me something
    March 2 02:40 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup I'm just getting back into it. I want to contribute like I did when I first joined.
    February 28 06:31 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup oh s***! I didn't know you reviewed even! on it!
    February 28 06:24 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup Check out my new review. You like Tom Waits and Black Sabbath so you should like the new Super Snake album
    February 28 06:09 PM
  • manosg will definitely do man
    February 27 08:14 PM
  • manosg hahaha you're too kind, dude. Thank you very much!
    February 27 07:25 PM
  • Titan some of them are just useless twats.....quite a few on that thread haha
    February 16 12:56 AM
  • Titan most of those users are flat out cancer
    February 15 08:24 PM
  • Titan oh indeed you did, but most of those users on that thread i wouldn't even think of responding to......the ignorance of a lot of millennials are off the charts haha
    February 15 08:10 PM
  • manosg I really like it, man. I'm one of those on here who like a down to earth review without too much prose and s*** and I love it when it's by people who know what they're talking about. Your review is both informative and has your personal touch and I really appreciate this. And now that you've taken Titan's remarks under consideration, it's even better. I actually think that you should write more often, if you have the time.
    February 4 04:47 PM
  • Titan much better!!
    February 4 03:23 AM
  • Jeffrulesyou Sounds like a hell of a fun time man, coach too? I'm a casual, but I'm from the NE. Living on the Rhode Island/Connecticut line. I play during spring/summer.. Winter is rough here, so that's my dome time. I don't play for any teams or anything like that just for a course/club friends kind of deal. It's my go-to resort from the wife
    January 27 05:03 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou Very cool! So, you've already got the temperament for the youngins' ha ha. I couldn't agree more. That seems how a lot of music is being made nowadays; there's no band that's really pushing the envelope so-to speak. Way back when you could point to a dozen groups, but now it's to a lot less substantial of a scale. In my mind, I'm thinking a lot of these 'sub genres' groups are just jocking a style catering to a certain audience y'know? A lot of these newer bands really have no identity.
    January 27 02:47 PM
  • Jeffrulesyou You're a teacher, Wham? and I agree, 100% digital age isn't the same that's for sure. You'd think being alive for a few decades while listening to music and having a fair opinion on music would earn you a fair debate on here? NAY! A lotta folks on here are stubborn, but I could see where you're coming from. As I've gotten older, I've learned as long as it's good it doesn't matter what it is.. all the genres and sub-genres are too far fetched now, gotta keep it simple.
    January 27 01:29 AM
  • Jeffrulesyou Digging the lists bro! I was telling Titan, I don't how you put up with these kids man, they don't know what they're talking about. 'Best decades' spot on! We both know 2000s/10's blow chunks in comparison
    January 26 10:42 PM
  • Titan haha like i've told you bro, pick your conversations wisely....these ignorant clowns aren't worth your time
    January 26 04:12 PM
  • Titan im in pain man.....a dark week for sure....
    January 16 01:36 PM
  • Titan what the hell are the Yankees thinking with that Chapman contract? guy is 'ok', but lacks command of his fastball and blew game 7 of the world series wtf
    December 15 05:05 PM
  • Titan they've contributed zero to the economy....truly a waste of YOUR time
    November 10 02:46 AM
  • Titan lol you're talking politics with a bunch of 20 year olds who don't know s***....save your energy my man
    November 9 08:09 PM
  • Titan Congratulations my main man! You're long wait is over!! ~epic game
    November 3 01:41 PM
  • guitarded_chuck congrats brother - check this, from a 1993 hs yearbook http://i.imgur.com/WeNTOCl.jpg
    November 3 12:26 PM
  • BenMorrison I have answered your comment on my latest list.
    October 28 04:08 PM
  • guitarded_chuck Yeah I dunno man Jose is so hot and cold now it's to be expected but we needed guys like Martin Pillar to get get going. Jays offense seems to run on momentum and they just can't get going against this amazing Indians bullpen. That Miller slider is one of the best pitches I can remember in a looooong time. Dodgers are a good team man they're finally figuring it out the Cubs are gonna win the WC but none of the 3 other teams left are going to be an easy go.
    October 18 02:11 PM
  • manosg Will definitely do, man. Since I checked both Toad and Roky because of your list, I'd like to return the favor; whenever you have some free time, feel free to jam Fraction - Moon Blood and Morgen - Morgen.
    October 3 05:48 PM
  • manosg Wasn't aware of Roky's story. A pretty sad one, definitely. Reminds me of Peter Green, one of the greatest talents on guitar and disappointments at the same time, even though his mental issues weren't his fault.
    October 3 04:27 PM
  • manosg Definitely. Don't get me wrong, had I jammed Toad when I was younger or if I had listened to it repeatedly, I'd probably rate it even higher. Great songwriting, awesome guitar tone. And those bands in the '70s, even though had considerably less means at their disposal, had impeccable productions.
    October 3 04:25 PM
  • manosg Hey man, just checked that Roky Erickson album on your latest list and it's pretty great! Dunno about you but I hear a lot of Rolling Stones in his music. His lyrics of course are not so Stones material.
    October 2 06:44 PM
  • Titan if i was a Cub fan, i guess i'd be hoping for the Mets in the WC round.....wouldn't want to go up against SF.....Cards going to miss
    October 1 12:30 PM
  • Titan the only thing i have going right now is Gary Sanchez, Tanaka, and Betances (overworked). Greg Bird coming back next year and I should have that crucial 3-4 punch...
    September 23 11:06 PM
  • Titan i am one of the few who really like the getaway, it's my favorite as a whole since blood sugar.....it has a lot of hooks and poppy elements to it which i'm a sucker for....of course cali and by the way are pretty great albums, but it's better than their last 2 outputs for sure
    September 2 02:05 PM
  • Titan true test starts right now for sure
    September 2 02:03 PM
  • Titan ur almost 40 games over.....very impressive
    September 1 07:29 PM
  • manosg Oh yeah great stuff as well.
    August 22 08:00 AM
  • manosg Indeed, Tapestry is so brilliant and diverse. A shame that more people on here haven't given it a chance. Dave Van Ronk is a great mention and I still haven't checked any of his stuff. That's why I'm making Folksinger a priority.
    August 11 05:54 PM
  • manosg Ugh, message has been truncated but I'm really interested in reading your favorite folk albums. Mine are on this list. First five are my top 5. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=737124
    August 11 11:25 AM
  • manosg Caravan is special indeed. Both Moondance and Astral Weeks are on my top 5 favorite folk albums. Van has such an ability to create images that is unmatched by anyone, for me.
    August 8 07:30 PM
  • manosg Sure thing man, hope you enjoy some of the recs. Also, lovin those Van Morrison ratings. The man doesn't get the love he deserves on here.
    August 7 07:27 AM
  • manosg And a few recs for when you want to listen to something different: Trespassers William - Different Stars (shoegaze/dream pop), Emancipator - Soon It Will Be Cold Enough (trip hop), Loreena McKennitt - The Book of Secrets (world music/celtic), Autumn's Grey Solace - Within the Depths of a Darkened Forest (shoegaze/dream pop), Buena Vista Social Club - Buena Vista Social Club (afro-cuban), The Last Drive Heatwave (rockabilly), Nina Simone - Pastel Blues (jazz/soul/blues).
    August 6 08:23 AM
  • manosg Prog: Fates Warning - Theories of Flight (no wank, focus on songwriting), Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused to Sing, Nosound - Afterthoughts, Riverside - Out of Myself, Anathema - Judgement.
    August 6 08:10 AM
  • manosg Doom: Sorcerer - In the Shadow of the Inverted Cross (one of the best hidden secrets in doom), Avatarium - Avatarium (with female vox), Jex Thoth - Blood Moon Rise, Om - Advaitic Songs (mix of doom and psych).
    August 6 08:06 AM
  • manosg Sure thing dude. I do get bored every once in a while listening to the same old stuff again and again so I know what it's like. Stoner: Nightstalker - Dead Rock Commandos, Burn the Sun - Crack of Dawn, Villagers of Ioannina City - Riza (this one has a lot of Greek tradition elements, not an easy listen), Zodiac - A Bit of Devil (blues rock, rather than stoner).
    August 6 08:04 AM
  • Titan well it looks like we both got what we needed! for my sake, i hope you guys are kicking yourselves 3 years from now or so
    July 30 02:54 PM
  • Titan Yanks are in a world of hurt....at least Tex will be gone after this year and Arod after next....then we will have some flexibility to build a decent team....Cubbies on the other hand....! The pressure will be intense for them come September.....
    July 14 12:00 AM
  • Gemini1979 I haven't listened to all their albums but my favorite with the Alice Cooper Band so far is Love It to Death. I plan on listening through the rest of their discography some time in the future.
    June 10 09:10 PM
  • Titan no no bro, i mean wait until we ACQUIRE Arietta
    April 13 08:34 PM
  • Titan cant wait until we go after Arietta
    April 12 09:16 PM
  • Titan batting .465, 2 homers, 8 rbi
    April 11 10:34 PM
  • Titan Darlin Starlin!
    April 11 08:45 PM
  • Atari that's ****ing nuts man, I probably have around 100-150, but I've only been collecting for a little more than a year. such an addicting hobby though.
    March 21 07:26 PM
  • Atari yeah it'd be cool to have that version, but nope haha. how many records do you have man?
    March 21 04:45 PM
  • Atari Hey, it looks like the freewheelin' Bob Dylan record I got is stereo not mono and through Columbia records ;) I know a lot of people prefer mono, but it's sounding fine to me. Although I gotta admit, the Beatles records I own on mono are some of my best sounding records

    January 19 11:10 PM
  • NeroCorleone80 I've heard it once, cant remember much but from what I recall it wasn't all that good
    December 18 06:50 PM
  • Titan what do you think of my boys signing Starlin?
    December 16 09:55 PM
  • Titan the art of going to a record store and picking up one of your favorite bands new releases, going home and cracking that baby open, and listening to it while you gazed at the album art/lyrics/liner notes for the very first time is a long lost experience that can't be captured today....the internet isn't all good
    November 5 12:10 PM
  • zakalwe The Damo Suzuki trilogy of Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi and Future Days are total mind melters. They're a relative late discovery for me as well.
    November 4 08:54 PM
  • zakalwe Who's Next is a fave. At the moment The Clash - London Calling or Can - Tago Mago are mine but I always come back to Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentleman we are Floating In Space. I just bloody love that record.
    November 4 08:49 PM
  • zakalwe What's your greatest album of all time dude?
    November 4 08:40 PM
  • jelzel23 ok i will check them
    November 3 02:44 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Do you dig Supertramp? They're cheesy as hell but that's the whole point of their albums, radio friendly songs that manage to be darker than 90% of prog rock
    November 2 03:53 AM
  • ArsMoriendi I know right?
    November 1 08:39 AM
  • Titan there are good users....you will find them

    October 29 11:55 PM
  • Titan best thing you can do is IGNORE an ignorant comment........they want a reaction out of you
    October 29 09:04 PM
  • Titan just be aware that the userbase is very young.....not worth getting into conversation with many of them
    October 29 08:59 PM
  • Titan There are more Met fans in the state of New York than Yankee fans....fact. Nationwide, different story. Citi Field is 'amazin'.
    October 28 01:51 AM

  • Titan Congrats my man!
    October 14 12:07 AM
  • Atari hey man sorry for the late reply. if you go to your profile on the left it should say quick links (towards the bottom) and you need to click on help forum. in there it will just ask for you user name and password and after you sign in you should be able to post in the forums. hope that helps
    October 12 03:54 PM

    October 10 07:53 PM
