  • OmairSh These are some of the best and most interesting covers I've heard,
    September 14 03:54 PM
  • Gyromania superb kayo dot review
    September 10 09:02 PM
  • klap thanks man that's much appreciated
    September 6 08:29 PM
  • klap of course
    September 6 02:09 AM
  • OmairSh I've been rec'd Kayo Dot, the debut. Have planned to get round to it, can't say when though
    September 2 08:36 PM
  • OmairSh Disturbed m/, they were the band that got me into the aggressive s***. Don't listen to them anymore though
    August 21 01:19 AM
  • OmairSh No I've memorised Weather Systems, love it. Looking forward to the one after WS :P
    August 19 12:23 PM
  • OmairSh Also when it comes to Leprous Bilaterals the most difficult to get into :P. Tall Poppy syndromes also a really good album
    August 18 03:54 PM
  • OmairSh really good album, looking forward to their next one
    August 18 03:47 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah I used to scoff at people who complimented Anathema and insulted DT, but now I understand. Anathemas a great band and their latest 2 records are pretty damn good, lots of passion and honesty
    August 18 03:23 PM
  • OmairSh Exactly, the album seemed so random and incoherent after my first few listens. Come back to it later, it will definitely grow
    August 18 03:19 PM
  • OmairSh Wow that was quick, already rated. But its not an easy listen, takes time to grow, also you hate the vocals? ........O_O
    August 18 03:11 PM
  • OmairSh Push it up the bucket list m/. Bucket lists are always massive :-/, too much music
    August 18 03:06 PM
  • OmairSh Leprous represents the future of prog, very impressive band
    August 18 02:50 PM
  • OmairSh These 2 are from their latest album,,,,,,, dude the vocals have ripped me a new asshole
    August 18 02:10 AM
  • OmairSh Dude why the f haven't you jammed Leprous? You want quality modern prog metal (and one of the reasons new DT albums piss me off) then check Leprous' Bilateral, mind boggling album.,,,,,,,,,,, and the vocals OMFG
    August 18 02:08 AM
  • OmairSh I think people like you and me that used to breath DT are the most disppointed, but in your case you've learnt to accept whatever teh band does, which is good since it helps you enjoy the music more.
    August 6 06:16 PM
  • OmairSh wtf you like the new DT? :D
    August 5 04:10 PM
  • Atari hey man sorry i didn't have time to read your review yet but i will today!

    August 2 01:22 PM
  • Atari will do buddy : ) my bad i've been super busy still trying to get back in the swing of things
    August 2 01:13 PM

  • Atari thanks man sorry for the late response been crazy busy hehe. got any reviews coming up lately? I recently listened to that horslips album you reviewed and it's fantastic.
    May 1 07:18 PM
  • SgtPepper Pretty good, I guess. I suppose nothing has changed much. By the way, I love your profile picture.
    April 16 04:46 PM
  • NightmareCinema16 I STILL TALK? Yeah, takin' shoutbox posts anyday.
    April 3 12:24 AM
  • Jethro42 Woah Spocks Beard are preparing a new album? Sweet. Well I'd like to see Triumvirat - Spartacus being reviewed, or Mostly Autumn - The Last Bright Light. You can consult my last list as well. Cheers, bro.
    March 13 10:17 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 Gonna be mostly innactive for a few months, folks. Will still take shoutbox comments, though.
    March 8 12:22 AM

  • JamieTwort Nice Horslips rating bro.
    March 4 03:48 PM
  • Atari Nice man. I still say your summary for that cactus album is like the best summary I've ever seen ;)
    March 1 09:09 PM
  • Atari hey man how you been? yeah it has been a while ;) glad to see you reviewing though again though keep it up!
    March 1 12:39 AM
  • surprisefriend i see my plan has worked do you want to be friends
    February 28 11:06 PM
  • Trebor. I have no expectations for new black sabbath
    February 28 09:16 PM
  • Trebor. David Bowie yeah. Pretty much everything comes out in april
    February 28 09:03 PM
  • Trebor. Not really
    February 28 08:50 PM
  • Trebor. Thanks man, I'm doin good
    February 28 02:25 PM
  • SgtPepper If you want to get promoted write reviews for new releases. You can still write for old albums, like I do, but balance that with new releases- new stuff is your ticket to getting promoted. But about me, I am enjoying it. It just takes getting used to. I was a user for 6 months, then I got promoted to contributor, now 6 months later I'm staff. So i'm just a freshmen here. I still feel like the new kid trying to fit in with everyone.
    February 26 12:02 AM
  • SgtPepper Thanks. But to be honest, I don't feel like a 'staff' member. I didn't even feel like a 'contributor' on my first promotion. I still feel like a regular user. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing though. I feel very out-of-place.
    February 25 11:23 PM
  • SgtPepper Yeah, it is. But the album has a more classic prog feel than Porcupine Tree. Imagine a combination between Yes, King Crimson, Camel, and The Alan Parson's Project.
    February 24 12:51 AM
  • SgtPepper Oh hey, mate. Those are good albums. I've been into Steven Wilson's new album lately, it's actually really good. I dont know if you're heard it but check it out: (This one is called "Luminol")
    February 24 12:36 AM
  • SgtPepper I just found out about them from AngelOfDeath's list. have yet to hear them though. What would be a good place to start?
    February 4 10:23 PM
  • OmairSh The second last album is also fantastic, most people prefer that one to Weather Systems.
    January 17 02:53 PM
  • OmairSh No no no, dude Anathema was doom wayyy back in the day, they're post-prog/atmospheric rock now, and don't worry about there being any growls, I wet myself once I heard the vocal performances on this.
    January 15 05:46 AM
  • OmairSh YO Nightmare listen to Weather Systems by Anathema, it might take a while to properly appreciate but once you do, my God. Their latest 2 albums are great.
    January 14 05:08 AM
  • SgtPepper I'm good. How are you, gotten into any good music lately? As for me, I've been regressing into some of my old 60s psych rock bands. Have you heard of Gandalf? I'm about to review them. here's a link if you want to check them out:
    January 13 10:20 PM
  • Atari Nope never heard of them bit I Just noticed u reviewed them. I'll have to check them out!
    January 11 02:00 AM
  • Atari Very nice i haven't heard much classical to be honest. and no problem man honestly you're reviews are pretty good. they're not perfect but neither are mine. All that should matter is that you enjoy writing not necessarily what other people think of you.
    January 9 12:53 PM
  • Atari well i'm glad you're feeling better i guess there's a pretty nasty flu going around. don't worry about the site's expectations man just write and be passionate and it should all work out :)
    January 8 10:06 PM
  • Atari Hey buddy Sry I forgot to respond to your last shout, how u been?
    January 8 09:46 PM
  • Atari Hey man i'm pretty good just have a lot more shopping to do. How's your holidays going? (apart from not feeling good : ( )
    December 18 06:54 PM
  • Atari ok man thanks for letting me know i'll check it out when i have the chance.
    December 12 04:37 PM
  • Atari No rush man take your time!
    December 11 11:46 AM
  • Atari Did a Bing Crosby review check it out man ;) also i'm looking forward to your mannheim steamroller review!
    December 10 04:30 PM
  • Mikesn Well that's happened a lot this year haha. But lately I've just been crazy busy with school so I haven't had much time to write.
    December 4 06:58 PM
  • SirArthur6 Thanks for the shout! The Rachmaninoff review was my first properly thought out review so I'm glad that it seems to be all right. I think that more could be going on in the classical side of sputnik so I'll probably end up writing another classical review soon.
    December 4 04:41 PM
  • Irving Well not really the Users list per se (because I can't exactly vote there haha), but yeah, putting together my personal Best of 2012 has been tricky. So far I've got a rough Top 7 sorted out, but beyond that...ugh. Why though?
    December 4 04:08 AM
  • SgtPepper Sorry for the late response. That's Good to hear, man. I have to buy some presents myself for friends/family. The holiday season is nice, but can be a real hassle.
    December 3 10:06 AM
  • Insurrection sounds good, ill check it out.
    December 2 04:50 PM
  • Insurrection well if you enjoy progressive metal id definitely recommend the new between the buried and me album. even wrote a 5 review for it, it quickly became one of my favorites.
    December 2 04:21 PM
  • Insurrection same here. did you vote in the poll?
    December 2 04:14 PM
  • Insurrection ive been going through something similar. been a real lazy ass these past few months, at least reviewing gives us something productive to do hah.
    December 2 03:27 PM
  • Insurrection i appreciate it man, i like yours too. you should write more
    December 2 03:05 PM
  • Mikesn oh thank you
    December 1 08:59 PM
  • SgtPepper I'm pretty good. Can't complain. How've you been, mate?
    November 30 05:55 PM
  • SgtPepper Nice, man. I look forward to it.
    November 20 11:51 PM
  • SgtPepper I've thought about it for a whille, but it has quite a few 5 rated reviews already, and those reviews covered everything pretty well. But I might review it for my 100th. It's a fantastic album. Also, just wanted to say that I really love your reviews. It's good to see more prog fans on this site.
    November 20 03:23 PM
  • Jethro42 these bands all have some albums that are not covered yet. Feel free to ask me which one needs a review the most; Triumvirat, Supertramp, Premiata Forneria Marconi, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Alan Parsons Project, Traffic, Horslips, Sinkadus, Dogma, Sebastian Hardie, Karmakanic, Arena, Mostly Autumn, Landberk, After crying, Finisterre...

    November 14 03:52 PM
  • Jethro42 That's cool, dude.
    November 14 02:07 PM
  • Jethro42 What's up dude?
    November 13 12:26 PM
  • NocteDominum See? I didn't try and got the feature. You'll get it one day
    November 7 12:27 AM
  • NocteDominum If you want some kind of improvement, ask someone on the site to proofread, We seem to be less of dicks if you guys ask first and not assume your s***ting gold.
    November 6 11:22 PM
  • Jethro42 Sup yourself, dude. Well I'm pretty much less active since a while indeed, but I'm never too far. I just have less time on my hands to do some reviews for now.
    November 1 01:22 PM
  • NightmareCinema16 Obviously, this day couldn't get further downhill...
    October 18 10:15 AM

    September 28 02:24 PM
  • Jethro42 You're right. I take good note, but I dont have time on my hands to write anything these days. It might change in a near future though.
    September 27 10:19 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 Next review will be in about 4-7 days. Any want 2 help with proofreading?
    September 27 09:29 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 Not working of A Farewell to Kings review. Anybody want to help with some proofreading when I'm done?
    September 18 02:57 PM
  • Jethro42 Much appreciated, dude. We concentrate on albums that are not covered yet. That way, we are the proggiest thing on sputnik =] Keep on progging!
    September 18 01:33 PM
  • Jethro42 Thanks for the proposition, dude. I'm not writing as regularly as before. If ever Nagrarok was too busy to help me, Ill be sure to ask you.
    September 18 01:10 PM
  • Jethro42 It's a collaboration between Nagrarok and me. I write the reviews and he does the corrections (I'm French)
    September 18 10:52 AM
  • NightmareCinema16 Next review will appear on Thursday or Friday.
    September 11 06:35 PM
  • NightmareCinema16 I going to take a break from ratings and start writing more reviews. Next review will come out on Saturday.
    September 4 06:29 PM
