  • Friday13th Good pick! Have fun on your trip.

  • Friday13th Hey e21, I can't do Space Shanty because we already had it in one of the earlier tournaments. You can't find my older lists on my profile but if you're not sure if an album has been done, look through the user list sidebar on the left of the artist profile.

  • Divaman Good news e. Friday will be starting a new prog contest this coming Wednesday.
    May 6 06:00 AM
  • TheNotrap Hahah nao fazia a minima ideia, estamos por todo o lado...o melhor pais do mundo tem de marcar presenca no melhor site. Vamos falando, abraco

  • Jethro42 Yes I know you know, but I only see solutions coming in front of me. News are good. I see a physiotherapist, and he has more than a rabbit into his hat, so it's positive. I have a lot of my problems from my back. he said to me that he will correct it for sure. I have a nerve that is stuck and it gives numb to my leg. It's really embarassing, but the therapist said it's gonna be fixed. Of course the muscular dystrophia and arthritis will remain, but all the rest can be resolved.

  • Divaman Thanks for the info, e. It's funny, because 30s or 40s is about where I pictured both you and Jethro as well. I guess that music keeps a person young-minded.
    April 2 02:57 AM
  • Jethro42 Try this link instead, sorry; https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=186597
    April 2 12:33 AM
  • Jethro42 Hi sir. I see that Divaman approached you regarding your respective ages. So apparently we have the vercict; Divaman might be the Sputnik senior. In my concern, it's the only one known by me that is 62 yo. It happened two times in the past that I met guys older than me, but they both left the site. One of them was 60 yo or something...And then, for a while, I was possibly the elder. If you want to take a look of the thread speaking of the ages, here it is; https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?
    April 2 12:29 AM
  • Divaman Hi e. OK, a question came up over the weekend. I hope this isn't an awkward question, but Jethro says you are very open about your age. Apologies if he's mistaken about that. I revealed to him this weekend that I am 62, and Jethro is now wondering whether you or I are (possibly) the senior member on Sputnik.

  • Jethro42 Hello my friend, just to say that I've edited my last two comments on Story Of I...Each time I realize I forgot to tell something, I add a sentence or two, and it happens frequently, so don't be hurry to read my comments ;)
    March 22 06:48 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello my friend, speaking of Il Bacio, it seems they've released a new LP available on youtube. I've just added it to the database. i'm just starting my listening. Sounds promising!...Enjoy!
    October 20 04:20 PM
  • Jethro42 My bad, man. I was confused between Biglietto Per l'Inferno and Il Bacio Della Medusa, so forget about what i wrote to you before. Long live Il Bacio!
    October 12 02:42 AM
  • Jethro42 Hey e21, mate, do you know that your tourney's album Biglietti Per l'Inferno had disappeared from here, from youtube, from ProgArchives and from Rate Your Music. From everywhere, i'm sure. I wonder why...That's a cheap shot. R.I.P. the album. I'm listening to Alphataurus - Alphataurus instead. Its second song sounds so much like some great Jethro Tull. very good album. Good w-e dude.
    October 11 10:49 PM
  • Jethro42 Well it's been a long time between your last apparition in the tourney and the day I decided to write to you with a bit of anxiety lol. I think all your sputmates would have done the same as I did eventually, given that you said you would be there to celebrate the winner. For Camel, that's awesome man! You surely did see their expression in their eyes and bodies. Good moments to share with your son. I'm glad for you!
    September 11 12:07 AM
  • Jethro42 Hello, mate. Good to have news from you. Your silence worried me a bit. The Moonmadness show must have been impressive and memorable. Cool that Latimer got somewhat recovered of his disease. And it's always fun to revisit the place where you lived the biggest part of your life.Nagrarok saw the same show in june. Is it the same setlist as yours? https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=276943
    September 10 06:16 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello e21, bro! Where have you been? I hope everything is ok, because you were saying you would be there for the finals of the tourney, and still no trace of you. Please leave me a message asap!...
    August 23 01:11 AM
  • Jethro42 Yeah it's running fast up there...Thanks to yell at me, bro, much appreciated! And good tourney!
    May 28 04:21 PM
  • bgillesp Haha, wow, quite a few. I will check some of them soon but probably not all because that would take a while
    May 28 03:59 PM
  • bgillesp I know PFM, who else from Italy should I check?
    May 28 02:37 PM
  • Zig Não tem problema, eu interpretei relativamente ao album em questão. Obrigado, amigo.
    April 20 01:48 PM
  • Jethro42 No worries bro, I still do mistakes in English myself and will always do. I advise you to tell Zig about it into his shoutbox to make him understand. Then you could edit your comment in The Henry Cow's Western Culture's thread.
    April 15 10:19 PM
  • Jethro42 You don't dig Henry Cow? It means you don't like it. Did you know?
    April 14 12:36 AM
  • Jethro42 Following you through the years was natural, with every amazing albums you covered since day one. I want to keep encouraging and support your work. That way, I help you to stay with us and continue your prog path like you say. Thanks for that Christmas gift! I listen to it non stop like a child hahaha. Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year brother, for you and all the ones you love. Keep progging!!!
    December 18 09:06 PM
  • Jethro42 So you covered it...You make my day, bro! I love that album a lot. I wanted you to simply listen to the album and you come with an extra deal in writing a review for it. I will read and comment soon.
    December 18 05:35 PM
  • Divaman Hi e. Just thought I'd let you know, in case you're interested - there's a new live Yes album out from last year's Drama/Topographic Oceans tour.
    December 6 05:15 PM
  • Friday13th Hey e21, you ready to vote for the final?
    November 29 11:19 PM
  • Jethro42 Yeah, you're right my friend. I'm trying to live with my diseases, but it's not easy. I developed anxiety through it all, and it doesn't help to have the good attitude. So I'm gonna visit a psychologist soon. About your reviews, I'm looking forward to your next review. Thanks for your wishes and support, I really appreciate, my friend.
    November 17 06:01 PM
  • Jethro42 Thanks for showing that you care, buddy. The muscular dystrophia is hereditary in my family. My grand mother had it, my father and a brother of mine have it too now, but it's me who is more affected. I have arthritis too, and because of my diseases, I can't work anymore since 7 years. I have to go now. Feel free to ask me questions, dude. And don't worry, we all take a look to some other shoutbox :)
    November 16 05:52 PM
  • Jethro42 ''I'm a very stubborn person, and I do not know if you saw that'' .....Well, what I noticed is that you always defend your point of view very well, and it's all of your advantage. You never leave anything to the hazard, and you always do your best to make things clear between you and a person, and you're not afraid to do compromises when needed. You are first and foremost a true gentleman, and it's always a pleasure to speak to you.
    November 15 07:17 PM
  • Jethro42 Hi dude. Just a word to say that I secretly hope that your album is gonna reach the finalists level.I know how much deeply Quarteto counts for you, and all it represents in your country. Band tried to change the face of your country in time of oppression, and they acted like heroes, and put it musically to express a tranquil revolution in a grandiose, epic piece of work that brings hope and warmth. Album is like a grand, delightful song that conveys lots of emotion and courage. Cheers!
    November 14 09:58 PM
  • Jethro42 I think I've got it. It's written ''Open everything in a window of private navigation'', but I'm afraid to try it. I'm not a computer expert, and I don't want to have potential difficulties if I make a change. You know what I mean...If I click here and there, and I don't know how to restaure like it was before... And all that for a simple song...Thanks anyway, my friend.
    October 10 05:19 PM
  • Jethro42 ''If you open a new window without a registration on Google, as an unknown person''....I try to understand, I tried couple of things and it didn't work. I directly entered on bandcamp (without the link) and no results. It would surely work from another computer, but my family is not near from here. If you can explain your method in other words, try it. If you can't, I heard Bolero enough time so it's all fine. Thanks bro.
    October 10 03:54 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello, did you know that the first match is presented since yesterday? So you can listen to the first two albums already, if you want to vote on them. Anyway, you have until next friday (the 22nd)...Good listen, Ciao man!
    September 14 09:29 PM
  • Jethro42 Yes, it's really funny to participate, and it makes you discover 15 other prog albums. Users that don't participate on it can listen to the albums and vote themselves too, so it spreads the prog a little more. It's Friday13th's 4th tournament and I was there for all of them, and I was the winner in the last one ;) You made a good choice in Quarteto 1111. See you there and for once, you're not the only one who brings prog!
    September 12 04:34 PM
  • TwigTW Nice!
    September 12 03:37 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello sir. Just go to the link Twig and SirLord gave you. Read the first comment; Friday13th is giving the rules to follow. You just have to choose a prog album. It has to be obscure, unknown or overlooked, with 20 votes or under. It's a head to head kind of tournament. Just visit and see if you're not sure. Cheers, man!
    September 12 02:43 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=177103 you should participate. Maybe could nominate Quarteto 1111
    September 12 02:15 PM
  • TwigTW There is a new Sputnik prog tournament you might find interesting: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=177103
    September 12 01:40 PM
  • Jethro42 Hey bud! 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 03:49 PM
  • Divaman Really liking the new Mostly Autumn album.
    July 28 05:32 AM
  • Divaman Yeah, I wasn't sure if the site would let me or not, it's been so temperamental lately. Haven't listened to it yet, but I just got the CD the other day.
    June 26 04:06 AM
  • Divaman Are you the one who suggested I listen to the band Mostly Autumn? If you are, you should know they have a new album out. I'll add it to the site's data base when I get the chance.
    June 24 04:30 AM
  • LibGyps Hey man. I enjoy reading your reviews. You have very good taste in music that is diverse. As someone that is also an avid prog rock lover, I was wondering if you've ever heard of the band: The Dear Hunter. They're truly an exceptional band with a genius as the frontman and I believe that you will fall in love with them, just as I have. I suggest starting with their album Act IV or The Color Spectrum. Happy listening.
    June 5 05:31 AM
  • Divaman I did now, thanks. Kudos go out to our friend Titan, who made me aware of this album and requested I review it.
    May 24 03:50 AM
  • Divaman You're welcome. I was listening to it again yesterday, and I thought of you and Jethro.
    March 16 11:53 AM
  • Divaman I have an album you might enjoy, "Endless Forms Most Beautiful" by Nightwish. They have it characterized here as symphonic metal, but to me it's closer to progressive rock with some Celtic folk elements.
    March 15 06:22 PM
  • TwigTW I have to check out that EP myself.
    January 13 07:35 PM
  • TwigTW Pandora Snail have a new live album. It sounds pretty good. If you haven't heard it yet: https://pandorasnail.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-babooinumfest
    January 11 12:14 AM
  • TheIntruder Thanks man. The same to you. Till next year with your reviews.
    December 24 05:26 PM
  • Jethro42 Keep the lenghty reviews coming, it makes more to like hahaha... A very Merry Christmas, buddy!
    December 23 10:55 PM
  • Jethro42 Anyway, to become good in a foreign language, we need to practice, and Sputnik is a good place to do so ;)
    December 23 06:51 PM
  • Jethro42 It's normal to forget about a foreign language if you don't practice it. It's still great if you can always read and write French. Here in Quebec, we are totally surrounded by English speakers, so our first foreign language has always been English which is the universal language nowadays. According to what I've seen in college, Spanish and German are following English in importance (for those who were studying in ''Literature and Languages'').
    December 23 06:49 PM
  • Jethro42 Thank you my friend. Written in a perfect French, really. Do you speak French or you used a translator? Let me try with the help of a translator...Feliz Natal e Feliz Ano Novo para você e sua família. Muitas felicidades. Saúde, Paz e Amor!
    December 23 05:27 PM
  • Divaman I understand now, thanks.
    November 29 03:35 AM
  • Divaman Oh, you and I aren't going to be far off on Aqualung after all. You have it rated 5 and I have it rated 4-1/2.
    November 28 06:32 PM
  • Jethro42 Bro, I have to tell you about a misunderstanding you had; In one of the last comments of your review, Roy is saying to you '' This album has only slightly grown off me over time...'', which means that he lost interest for the album. I thought it was a good idea to tell you about it. Since English is not our first language, that kind of thing can happen anytime. Have a good day, buddy!
    October 11 06:36 PM
  • Zig Desculpa, só responder agora; mas claro que participarei. Tenho de te aplaudir pelas quatro reviews ao Cid, tudo muito bom. Mais uma vez, obrigado pela consideração, amigo.
    September 10 09:43 AM
  • TwigTW Looking forward to reading and listening over the weekend--thanks for the reminder!
    September 8 04:25 PM
  • Zig Obrigado pela consideração, tenho todo o prazer em fazer parte de tais reviews ;) Muito bom, o catálogo do Cid em prog rock é fenomenal, merece bem mais reconhecimento em Portugal e no mundo prog. Anyway, bom trabalho, amigo.
    August 31 12:59 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Glad you like it, I'll read your review. You might want to check a list I did a few days ago http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=168937
    August 29 06:56 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1nDWNcbWAQ Probably my favorite song by them. Lyrics, vocals, bass, piano and drums are all awesome
    August 12 12:56 AM
  • SCREAM! We were there from midday Friday to late afternoon Monday which allowed us to see the major sights and a bit of extra. Our hotel was outside the downtown area which was kind of cool since it was pretty cheap and allowed us to see parts of the city outside the tourist areas. If you have any other questions let me know and I'll answer if I can!
    May 8 07:26 PM
  • SCREAM! It's a beautiful city. I think I even liked it better than Amsterdam. There was quite a bit of tourists already though so I imagine it might be even worse in July. It's a great place to just walk around and take in the architecture. In old town I'd recommend climbing up the Old Town Hall tower to get a look at the city, make sure to check out the massive St Vitus cathedral and if you can save a bit of time for the Jewish district as well. (Some nice synagogues and shops).
    May 8 07:24 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Duuuuude, you still need to check Godspeed and Sigur Ros!!!
    April 22 04:34 AM
  • Jethro42 Here's the match 3 (M3). You can vote for one of these albums. After, you can take a look at the M4 that already begun (feel free to do so of course); http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=732569
    March 21 06:42 PM
  • Jethro42 oh, I feel sorry for your son and also for you...It shows that it destabilize a lot when we lose the using of a computer. I know what it is. Welcome back dude, I was hoping that everything were ok for you during your absence. As for the contest, you can join us and participate if you wish, even without choosing an album. However, you can listen to both current albums, and vote for one of them. Just follow the Friday13th' list if you're interested.
    March 21 06:35 PM
  • Jethro42 There is still one place left for the prog rock tourney. Come and join in! Please send me a message. Cheers!
    February 26 03:18 PM
  • blatho blatho.
    February 26 12:43 AM
  • Jethro42 Hey dude, I don't know if you're aware about that, but Friday13th is preparing an obscure prog rock contest. He's now ready for the preleminaries. You just have to choose an obscure prog album, and it will be compared in duality with some other albums. This will lead to a final head to head. It's really funny, if you wish to participate, it would be funny. Leave me an answer if you want. Cheers.
    February 25 07:10 PM
  • Frippertronics on it
    January 18 07:52 PM
  • Titan agreed.....all of my experience is with distribution.......started in the engineering department conducting load flow studies and drawing layouts.....then i went in to the control center to handle feeder processing.....what about you?
    December 28 01:11 AM
  • Titan Hey man, just like you, I've been with my electric utility for almost 15 years now
    December 26 12:53 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman The first two albums by Godspeed (and their EP Slow Riot) and the second and third albums by Sigur Ros are all essential
    November 18 06:41 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Well, Godspeed is probably my favorite band of the genre so if you haven't checked them I think you should, their first two albums however are not supposed to be listened without being focused, you need to sit and and focus solely on the album and let its sound to take you away. You should also check Sigur Ros, totally different from Godspeed, their sound is one of those that's like "Objectively" beautiful as hell.
    November 18 06:41 PM
  • GooGooGajoob Do you like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvwmFoql0lg
    November 18 12:08 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Do you like post-rock?
    November 17 10:45 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Oh no, I hadn't noticed
    October 26 04:04 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I dunno if you can call them "obscure" though, they certainly aren't that radio friendly but they actually quite popular these days. An excellent mix of modern indie rock with jazzy moments
    October 17 06:10 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Have you checked The Reign of Kindo?
    October 16 05:59 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Check my new review, some hard rockin' prog, you might enjoy it
    October 12 06:37 PM
  • TwigTW You're welcome. Nice reviews--keep up the good work!
    October 8 04:45 PM
  • TheIntruder I'm new on Sputnik and I don't know yet the members here. So, the only thing I can do is to hear, rate and comment the album, when I can.
    October 6 03:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You my want to check my last review, it is a funky album but pretty focused on a complex instrumentation
    October 6 03:04 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Do you like funk?
    October 5 10:24 PM
  • Jethro42 Sorry, but I prefer to let people come naturally to your review. After one spin, the music of Pandora Snail didn't convince me enough anyway, so it isn't worth the effort by my side. I can give you some usernames if you wish. It's the best I can do.
    October 5 07:21 PM
  • Jethro42 Hi dude, if you're interested, I made a Pain of Salvation list. My personal top 20. Cheers!
    October 1 10:30 PM
  • Jethro42 I have a little tip for you cos your reviews still don't have the visits you wish to have. First of all, don't give up, some other progheads will join us to your reviews. It's a question of time. People will recognize your name on the front page, and they soon will comment on your reviews. Secondly, try to do a list in the same time that you deliver a review, thus people are gonna be more in contact with your username, and they'll become familiar with it. It's just my two cents.
    September 22 10:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Hey dude, I just wrote a review for some obscure stuff, you might want to check it out!
    September 20 08:46 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman When you check Rising try to check the "L.A Mix" version, it has a way better production
    September 17 09:52 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Both are way heavier than the debut but at the same time proggier (specially Rising) both albums show how powerful was the Dio-Blackmore-Powell trident
    September 17 09:39 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman So that means you haven't checked Rising and Long Live Rock
    September 17 09:31 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Since you listed Deep Purple as one of your favorite bands, what are your toughts on Rainbow?
    September 17 09:18 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman hahaha yeah I understand what you're feeling, be sure to give them some time to click in though, since most people find their sound pretty "exotic" at first
    September 16 01:36 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I've checked some of the songs in the album and there are some pretty cool moments on it but it is one album that needs some time to fully appreciate in my opinion, so I'm waiting to have more free time so I can check it better, but I will don't worry, I really enjoyed what I checked!. btw have you checked Los Jaivas yet?
    September 15 11:30 PM
  • TheIntruder I had heard of Discipline and particularly of this album. After reading what you wrote about them, on your review about the live album of ELP, I became even more interested. Soon I will check them.
    September 3 09:50 AM
  • Jethro42 I see you rated Discipline. I only know the song ''Canto IV'' by them. Apparently it's the standout of the album... and it seems , according to your rating, that it's great from start to finish...
    September 3 12:45 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Los Jaivas is probably the most popular prog band in latin america and in the spanish language, they're known for their mix of prog with andean instruments, you should check them I've reviewed a couple of their albums if you're interested, if you like them you should check Congreso too. On Argentina there's Almendra and Pescado Rabioso, both with a strong proggy influence. You should focus on those two countries since they were the pioneers in latin prog
    September 2 11:29 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Nice!, the only portuguese album I've check is 10000 anos depois and I loved it. You should check some latin-american prog bands too
    September 2 10:56 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You're from latin america if I'm not wrong, right? which country?
    September 2 10:06 PM
  • TwigTW David Bowie - Space Oddity, nice!
    July 17 08:18 PM
  • Jethro42 Welcome to Sputnik, dude. We both are of a similar profile since I'm probably the elder of the site, being born in 1963. I noticed we also share similar favorite bands. English is not my first language either. I am a French speaker from Québec. And don't be afraid, Sputnik is a nice music site, and it's composed with cool people. It's just that some people can seem a bit harsh with new members, but you just have to be patient. It doesnt last that way.
