  • SCREAM! I've only ever heard one of his albums so I don't have much to go on but give this a shot:
    November 22 06:11 PM
  • SCREAM! That's what I figured. Saw your post asking about modern bands with microtones and thought of Jute Gyte but he plays really abrasive (borderline noisy) black metal so probably not your cup of tea
    November 22 05:33 PM
  • SCREAM! Are you into black metal much at all?
    November 22 04:58 PM
  • bgillesp Can I go ahead and claim a Triana rec for next years competition?
    November 8 12:41 PM
  • TheSpaceMan yea to be fair the servers were down for a few days leading up to Friday iirc
    November 4 03:09 PM
  • TheSpaceMan goddammit i keep forgetting! whens the vote due?
    November 4 03:07 PM
  • Mythodea Hey man, i've been in Belgrade the last four days with almost no internet connection and consequently I couldn't vote. I thought - or maybe hoped - that my absence would go unnoticed. Couldn't imagine mine would be the decisive vote! I'm voting for this round though, rest assured! You'll have my opinion by Friday

  • Jethro42 I asked to NoTrap too. I thought about Titan, but do you want me to stop searching now?
    October 28 02:10 PM
  • Voivod So you want me to listen to the two albums in this list -
    October 28 12:38 PM
  • Voivod Tbh, i didn't understand the following part - "jam M6 of our prog tourney and break the 8-8 tie". What do you mean?
    October 28 09:37 AM
  • TheSpaceMan oh my god, totally slipped my mind! i rarely check anything off of 'my discussions' so i wasnt seein the lists.
    October 21 06:47 PM
  • Jethro42 Apparently, the Progstreaming link works if you use Google Chrome. Just avoid Internet Explorer. Would be better to specify it beside the link. And it's weird, Progstreaming is directly connected to spotify, so the album is simultaneously playing in spotify. Hope all the contestants have spotify, in case we need it.
    September 26 08:43 PM
  • Jethro42 The link Progstreaming doesn't work anymore for me :( It says the spotify application is needed. I have the free version of spotify, and the album is available there, but there is no way to give a link. It's also on Deezer, but if you don't have it, you have to subscribe. So what should we do? If there is no solution, should I take Fabio Zuffanti back? What a mess!
    September 25 10:23 PM
  • Jethro42 Ahhh You're my savior! I really appreciate it. Album deserves to be known by our prog community. Thanks to contribute for its promotion. Will prepare a blurb and give you a link in a few minutes...
    September 21 04:07 PM
  • Jethro42 Hi, it's me again. You know what? I regret Ingranaggi Della Valle. Excuse me if I insist. As you know, it was my first choice. So if you see an overture for it, let me know. I think you already made all the match ups. If it's more like an impossible puzzle, forget it. But I wish people came to know that exceptional album. Thanks for your attention, dude.
    September 21 10:02 AM
  • Jethro42 All right, mate, let's keep it as it is, thanks anyway. I just noticed you dig Anglagard. Ingranaggi Della Valle - Warm Spaced Blue is close to the style of Anglagard with its mindblowing waves of mellotron. Ingranaggi is also symphonic prog, but it's more melodic, softer, less crazy or weird. There is always something new to discover...It's that varied. On the other hand, the music of Fabio Zuffanti is also drenched into sympho prog, but it's more immediate, accessible and easier to swallow.
    September 19 07:15 PM
  • Jethro42 If it causes too much trouble, I'll keep my positions. Anyway, I like both albums equally, for some different reasons.
    September 19 03:11 PM
  • Jethro42 Album would be ''Ingranaggi Della Valle - Warm Spaced Blue''
    September 19 02:56 PM
  • Jethro42 Hello Friday dude. Feel free to refuse my request, but I'd like to change my album. Someone finally found a link for a streaming to my first choice. I know it's a bit late to ask you that. I really can live with my actual choice though. Both albums deserve to get known, that's a fact.
    September 19 12:35 PM
  • smaugman haha that's okay! there's always next year
    September 17 04:02 AM
  • smaugman Sorry i read your previous comment wrong
    September 16 08:03 PM
  • smaugman Im on your side
    September 16 07:58 PM
  • smaugman Lmao prepare for s***show bcuz of your comment :D
    September 16 07:48 PM
  • Jethro42 I edited my last comment a little bit. All I want to tell you is I was thinking in French before writing my sentence, and visibly, it doesn't work in English with the word ''forget''. But you have to understand the sense of what I tried to say. Let say this; You won't forget King Crimson after you see them'' You see, it makes more sense like that.
    September 16 05:20 PM
  • Divaman Lol, good one. It worked.
    September 15 09:35 PM
  • Divaman Oh, I see they ARE in your list after all. Don't know why I didn't see them last night. I was working until 2AM, probably was bleary-eyed.
    September 15 01:23 PM
  • Divaman Ah, that makes sense. Would have been surprised if you liked a lot of the bands that you mentioned but didn't like The Who.
    September 15 01:21 PM
  • Divaman I was just checking out your list of favs, Friday, and one band stands out as missing -- you're not fond of The Who?
    September 15 03:19 AM
  • smaugman k younshould still listen to sweet nothings if u havent already
    September 14 05:09 PM
  • wham49 ok I have a little blurb if you want to change it, sorry it happened fast and did not have time to get through it, at the bottom of the comments
    September 13 11:41 AM
  • gagnonov discovered so much jewels through it
    September 11 03:27 AM
  • gagnonov do another prog tourney you ****
    September 8 01:45 PM
  • Jethro42 hahaha! A good way to prevent to live other bad years in music like 2016 :) ''Do not ask what you can do for your country, but ask what your country can do for you'' hahaha
    May 2 01:12 PM
  • Jethro42 Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, man. Best Wishes, and God bless you!

    November 10 10:12 PM
  • zakalwe Incredible. The people stand up, are counted and can never be beaten. Who knows what will happen but at least the people spoke and are being heard. Trump though. lol.

    October 22 03:50 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Haha, it lacks the italian identity but it might be my favorite PFM, La Conquista is seriously one of the best s***s ever
    October 6 11:53 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman or maybe don't, now that I give it a second listen, it ain't that great tbh
    October 5 10:18 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Cool psychedelic rock with horns which is always an awesome feature
    October 4 09:45 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman check Stati di Immaginazione by PFM
    September 26 10:20 PM
  • Snowdog808 Awesome! I listened to all the tracks except the last one, and so far, they seemed to have really delivered yet again.
    September 16 10:17 PM
  • Snowdog808 Hi again Friday. The second Seven Impale full length is out today. Do you think you'd want to try it out?
    September 16 01:41 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman i thought Marching Children was about the Children's Crusade. I don't think Supper's Ready's about that? Which one I'm not gettin? haha
    September 12 09:48 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman is it? o: wow, gotta check the song's lyrics since I loved Marching Children's
    September 12 08:30 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman storm and thunder and the t/t are freakin awesome
    September 11 11:28 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman which is awesome(?
    September 11 11:16 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman What if Jefferson Airplane went prog?
    September 11 09:23 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Yeah, uni years have been by far the worst of my life, because of the people in there, not that much because of the career. If you like law you'll enjoy it, it is a beautiful career for those that love it, but the stereotype of lawyers being cruel and evil ppl is something I'm starting to believe haha
    August 23 01:36 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I'm on third year of (at least) five needed in here. God I hate it, but I need a law degree to get into diplomacy haha
    August 22 10:51 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman law school? so I got a future coleague in here huh? Prepare to lose your social life
    August 22 09:20 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman yo check my new list m8
    August 22 01:56 AM
  • jacobclark512 I agree, and I also know that it's not meant in a salvific way. It just came way too close to that line that I thought it had to be mentioned and critiqued. It's kind of similar to Needtobreathe's recent song "Clear" which came way too close to the "is it talking about God or his wife?" line and therefore was not a good moment for the album. Hope that makes sense.

  • Torontonian Thats a monstrous argument for another day. :P
    July 14 10:33 PM
  • Torontonian Even though i like him :D
    July 14 03:56 PM
  • Torontonian I think im gonna have to disagree. Even though he isn't completely to one side of the spectrum as Trump/Sanders his ideas are still incredibly radical. 40% spending cut, elimination of the Federal Reserve, opposition of the PATRIOT act, defund military etc etc. These are all notions that the majority mainstream politicians would shoot down instantly in congress.
    July 14 03:55 PM
  • Torontonian whats your take?
    July 14 10:49 AM
  • Torontonian im a big fan of libertarian principles so thatll probably be my pick. Even though in reality his agenda is just as idealistic as that of Sander's. Oh well, i guess third party choices are more for making a statement than anything else.
    July 14 10:45 AM
  • Torontonian ill probably go with a third party choice myself, haven't decided who yet.
    July 13 04:18 PM
  • Torontonian you are right. Many trump supporters are only voting for him because they think that he is the only viible option to defeat hillary even if he isn't their first pick by choice. I know people who i highly respect that are voting for him, most of the time simply because they feel tied down to the two party system. I have nothing against the voters themselves, but i personally think that most of those labels fit the man pretty accurately.
    July 13 04:17 PM
  • Torontonian i hate the dude myself but looks as if he's gonna take the win so i better get used to him :P.
    July 13 10:18 AM
  • zakalwe My word that Sargon of wotsit hits it on the head! Thanks for pointing me in his direction, his thoughts on the Brexit/Brats are absolutely spot on.
    June 29 04:45 AM
  • zakalwe When I was at school/college/uni I was taught to respect those who'd struggled. (I honestly said thank you to a random old chap in the street after I saw Saving Private Ryan lol) The animosity shown towards 'older' people from the millenial generation is an absoulute ****ing disgrace. Where was the older generations voice when drafted? Can you imagine that now? ****ing brats don't know their born and are unbelievable hypocrites.......not you though dude :D
    June 26 12:35 PM
  • zakalwe It's the 18-24yr old demographic dude. They don't understand democracy and are so used to asking and getting their brain can't process what has happened. The system is so desperate to remain part of the EU there will inevitably be further attempts to get us back in. There has been an initial shock, confounded with Cameron resigning coupled with uncertainty but for the most part people are excited, hopeful and free.
    June 26 04:26 AM
  • zakalwe I'm genuinely shocked dude. Turns out we are a democratic nation!!! Things will be a bit rocky for awhile and it will take a few years to actually leave but this is a great day. The people spoke.
    June 24 01:14 AM
  • Jethro42 Oops, your link leads toward Prog Discovery M7 but I found your Beach Boys list so yes, thanks :)
    May 16 06:43 PM
  • Onirium Sorry, I was having quite a busy week, although I guess that's not an excuse not to celebrate the glory of prog! ;)
    May 7 10:50 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman huuuuuuh that 3.0 to RATM man!Have you checked Famous Last Words? Not as good as classic Supertramp, but the last three songs of the album kick ass
    May 5 01:42 AM
  • zakalwe Sorry man I'm out of sync with the prog tourney at the min but I'm still in.
    April 28 01:16 PM
  • TwigTW The first time I listened to DOTF I didn't really get it, but the second listen was brilliant. I will definitely be looking into more from him, after I become more familiar with DOTF. Might even check out his book, so thanks for that.
    April 28 09:45 AM
  • TwigTW I started checking out Harry patch, Delusion of the Fury, and it's very interesting. I probably should have asked you this before, but is this a good place to start? Which is your favorite?
    April 27 05:32 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I'll try dude, but I can't promise that much since I'm on exams period :/
    April 25 06:44 PM
  • SharkTooth I'll try
    April 25 06:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Really? I've always heard he went into a more straightforward pop style, but it seems that I might be wrong
    April 18 02:34 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Yeah Mass Emmanuel was certainly my favorite on there.
    April 11 12:27 AM
  • ArsMoriendi I enjoyed it, but it's no Electric Lucifer haha
    April 10 11:36 PM
  • ArsMoriendi It's so surprisingly creative, how did you find this?
    April 10 11:15 PM
  • ArsMoriendi What the hell is this haha, I kind of like this so far though...
    April 10 11:05 PM
  • Frippertronics two enid reviews in a week and the prog crew is nowhere to be found. boo hoo, guess that beach boys/buckley series ain't happening.
    April 10 05:16 AM
  • MrSirLordGentleman A 4? nice, didn't thought you'd enjoy it that much. Besides those two songs it isn't that great imo
    April 4 09:10 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Now you've checked all of their essential albums. You just need to jam La Ventana cause it has Mira Niņita and Todos Juntos, their most popular songs
    April 3 09:53 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman You liked it? Nice I thought you wouldn't haha
    April 3 09:50 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman I'd say that Crimson, Genesis, and Supertramp are pretty lefty too haha
    April 3 08:39 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman However, while I admit that Los Jaivas (along with Congreso and Blops) may have influenced into this political twist in latin rock (specially in Chile), I'd say that this started thanks to all the right-wing dictatorships in the continent; so in the 80's bands like Los Prisioneros in Chile (another of the international renowned chilean bands) or bands in Argentina had lefty tendencies, which as I said, remains til this day
    April 3 08:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman While it is true that not all of their lyrics are about political topics, I'd say that at least 50% of them are and that could be an interesting point for you essay. Latin America being the place of birth of lefty prog. That would have a huge impact, cause since then, most latin artist have lefty tendencies specially in Chile and Argentina (the other big country in latin rock)
    April 3 08:34 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Cool article, it even cites Blops and Congreso! (the other two of the big three of chilean prog). It is true that there was a vision of rock music being more to the high-class, while the people's music was Jara's or Parra's. Los Jaivas, along with Congreso and Blops were the bands that started the trending of leftist rock (which remains til this day in latin america) and were the first bands that created more unique sounds (before that, all chilean rock was covers of north american rock n roll)
    April 3 08:32 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Sound of "chilean piano" from chilean traditional music, I suppose you can see that his playing is pretty unique.Anyway, if you want more help just ask for it. Too many, long shoutboxes so I suppose it is time to finally click that "all posts" button in shoutbox that no one ever uses hahaPeace m8
    April 3 07:53 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman The most important members of the band are Claudio Parra, the drummer, who died and is now replaced by his daughter Juanita. Claudio definitely was one of the best drummers ever imo, you can see why on Tarka y Ocarina. El Gato Alquinta, main voice and guitar and leader of the band. Mario Mutis the bassist and one of the creative minds of the band along with Alquinta and the pianist Eduardo Parra (brother of Claudio) who is imo one of the best keyboardist ever too, he mixed prog with the classic
    April 3 07:52 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Alturas is certainly one of the most unique live albums for the place it was played at (some years before they played a concert in the Antartica and were the first band ever to do so) but I've heard that creating an album in the heights of Machu Picchu was even more difficult
    April 3 07:49 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman As some "specific" information about the band, they founded in 1963 (old af I know) in Viņa del Mar and went mainstream with their album "La Ventana" which includes their two most popular songs "Mira Niņita" and "Todos Juntos", after the coup d'etat they went to Argentina and then to Europe and in the 80's recorded their most succesful album "Alturas" and then created a live version of it in Machu Picchu along with some narration from another nobel prize winner Vargas Llosa. The live version of
    April 3 07:48 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman and literature, the way they can make everything sound great "in a poetic, romantic way" wether it is an ode to a cat (Neruda lol) or a whole political manifesto. That's all I can think of for now, if you want more specific info I could get it for youP.S: fk Nixon, Kissinger and the CIA :v
    April 3 07:44 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman That talk about latin american, and worldwide. Todos Juntos, their most popular song, is a peace anthem for latin american. The ones that don't follow that "friendship and harmony" vein go however, as said before, into political topics, the best example should be "La Conquistada" which is about La Moneda (chilean presidential palace) getting destroyed in the coup d'etat, all of this in a very "poetic" way of course. That's probably the most interesting thing in latin american music
    April 3 07:42 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Most of Neruda's work isn't politic though. Most of his poems are odes, to common objects or persons in a way that he exacerbates many feelings, emotions and expressions. Alturas de Machu Picchu is one of those, so that's the vein the lyrics of the album follow, while Obras takes a mix between odes/poetry songs from Parra and some with social critics. Their other two important albums "El Indio" and "Cancion del Sur" which have lyrics written by them, and most of their other albums have lyrics
    April 3 07:40 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman Even outside of Latin America.Both Neruda and Parra had left-wing thinking and so did Los Jaivas, that's why two of their most important albums take lyrics from their works and that's why they lived in Argentina or France for many years once Pinochet was in the power. In the music and literature Latin America has always been "lefty", except for Vargas Llosa, so you get an idea of the topics in lyrics, poems and novels
    April 3 07:37 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman with the CIA in some pretty suspicious circumstances. Violeta Parra is one of the most important musicians in latin america, along with Mercedes Sosa, Victor Jara and Silvio Rodriguez, they're regarded as the creators of the protest song (so you can get an idea of her style of lyrics). All of them have been cited as big influences by artists like Joan Baez, Springsteen or Dylan. She commited suicide, and her song, "Gracias a la Vida" is a peace anthem that as far as I know is pretty well known
    April 3 07:35 PM
  • MrSirLordGentleman mmm well, Los Jaivas are probably the most important prog band in spanish so even if they're not popular in the States they're legends in latin america and Spain, and I've heard they're pretty well known in France and Russia as well. Not a lot to say about Neruda, he's one of the better known poets of the history, worked as a diplomatic and was pre-candidate for presidency of Chile from the communist party, he died a little bit after the coup d'etat that our lovely Mr. Kissinger arranged

    March 29 08:44 PM
  • TwigTW will do, thanks
    March 29 06:20 PM
  • Frippertronics the what and who? man, i honestly don't care for mike as a person but holy s*** he really shines on the more experimental tracks tbh (the surf and car songs are just boring)
    March 29 12:25 AM
  • Frippertronics man oh man honestly not looking forward to the early albums tbh
    March 29 12:15 AM
  • Frippertronics probably gonna try and start the series tonight with surfin safari (haven't heard it but I honestly think the discog up until Shut Down will be easy tbh) also gotta finish the enid before the new record drops next friday
    March 29 12:03 AM
  • Frippertronics you should check out the BBC doc on Dennis, s***'s heartbreaking when they show his final performance before he died. Dude sounded nothing like he did on POB
    March 28 10:21 PM
  • Frippertronics Way ahead of you, Brian has some dope dance moves such as the disinterested limp wrist and the infamous where's dennis look
    March 28 04:09 PM
  • Frippertronics gonna do a discog series of the beach boiz, how hard should I 5 Summer in Paradise?
    March 28 01:07 AM
  • SharkTooth dammit I was hoping someone else would do the deciding vote for me
    March 28 12:33 AM
  • SCREAM! Those surf rock/bm songs sound pretty badass
    March 26 06:38 PM
  • SharkTooth Still need to hear Aria in full, gonna do that today
    March 18 03:23 PM
  • bnelso55 Great! Glad to hear it. Thanks for taking the time to screen it. I really dig the record and I'm excited to share it. Just wanted to be sure it's a proper fit for the tourney.
    March 15 04:32 PM
  • bnelso55 Thanks. I appreciate it. Just want to keep it prog! If you think it would be necessary to drop or replace it, I'm good with that. I'll leave it up to you.
    March 15 02:04 PM
  • bnelso55 Hey there! Really enjoying this prog contest. I'm just curious if you are vetting the contest submissions before pairing them up for the contest. I ask because I'm hoping to get your opinion on the record I suggested. Although I'd say it's definitely prog-oriented, I'm concerned that it may not be "prog enough". Would you be OK with checking a few tracks and letting me know if you think it's fit for the tourney?
    March 15 12:25 PM
  • Snowdog808 I'd definitely say City of the Sun is a great and innovative take on the Graaf Generator and King Crimson (especially Wetton era) school of eclectic prog rock, bringing in a vast yet stable blend of jazz fusion, hard rock, and symphonic rock into one obscure Nordic prog gem. The beginning and ending epics "Oh My Gravity" and "God Left Us for a Black-Dressed Woman" especially show a band of the traditional prog scene that can make unusually structured songs that are second-to-none.
    March 13 08:29 PM
  • Snowdog808 That sounds cool. I'd love to enter Seven Impale's City of the Sun or Agusa's Tva if you wouldn't mind. They are amazing Nordic eclectic prog and psychedelic prog albums respectively, and they don't quite have 15 votes yet here on Sputnik.
    March 13 06:46 PM
  • tmthycnnlly If I knew of an album that qualified I'd jump in immediately, but unfortunately I do not
    March 12 07:56 PM
  • Mythodea I understand. Sorry my friend. I'll try maybe next time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
    March 12 08:51 AM
  • smaugman haha, I have no idea how you people find all those strange, unknown albums, so count me out ;)
    March 12 08:27 AM
  • Mythodea Hmm, apparently I can't focus on the competition. I'm out.

  • Frippertronics oh yeah I know, don't worry
    March 3 09:34 PM
  • Onirium "Such a peculiar, eccentric and light-hearted record from the Swedish arm of the Rock in Opposition movement. Musically joyous and sincere, the band blends a jazzy, free prog style with the Swedish musical tradition, creating a heartfelt record as very few prog artists have. Note: the final three tracks on the YouTube link are bonus tracks which did not appear on the original album. Make of that what you will, I guess."
    February 25 08:17 PM
  • Onirium Thanks, Friday, for adding my submission :)You're right, since all the albums have detailed descriptions, it would be interesting for Maltid to have one as well. If I'm not asking you too much, would it be possible to change my description to this:

  • Jethro42 The band is ''Procession (PROG)'' and the album is ''Frontiera''. I hope you can do it. It would be my choice for the next contest. Thanks for you're trying anyway, friend.
    February 20 02:28 PM
  • Jethro42 Hi Friday, could you help me? I try to add an album in the database, and ask me why, it doesn't work and yet I did it so many times. If you wanna try, I will give you the link and all you need to succeed. Thanks in advance.
    February 20 01:28 PM
  • TwigTW Hope you read this thread. You were mentioned many times (in a good way):
    January 20 01:36 PM

    January 7 02:00 PM
  • Frippertronics too late dude, but I'll check the s/t
    January 7 01:55 PM
  • Frippertronics I've heard of 'em, but too lazy to get round to it. I've heard lots about Kimono, so I got it on the backlog
    January 5 07:58 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Hmmmm I'll put it on my list
    January 5 12:31 PM

  • 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 -
    June 24 02:28 AM
  • 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
  • TwigTW 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!
