You shouldn't use words like "looms" around people with warped mind. You might find that the thread degenerates, and you'll wish that you had weft it alone.

On a side note, do you object to the song title "Enda the Lion"?

Rumor

So, what with the new guitarist and all, is it true that the new album is going to be called "The Voyage of the Dawn Shredder"?

it'd be cool if there was ONE huge ginamourous tree-one to rule them all. Six trees for prog rock bands, who reached the sky, Seven trees for hard rock bands in their halls of rock, Three trees for punk rock bands, doomed to die, One tree for Eighties bands, and their banal schlock, One tree to fin...

I just picked up a bunch of CDs, of which the most interesting is "Hildegard von Bingen" by a group called Garmana. They take pieces of music by abbess Hildegard and update them. As corny as this sounds they actually do a good job of it, mainly because they never try to crowd out or alter the origin...

It's been odd observing Steve Irwin's career from Australia. The first couple of times I heard of him it was on American shows. He had the sort of personality that suited itself more to export than to local consumption. My first impression on seeing his actual show was "This guy is an idiot." It too...

Soundtrack to Narnia

I have just started reading the Narnia Chronicles, and as I usually have music playing in the background while I read I thought it would be fun to have one album that I would play most often for each book. I have a few ideas about which albums might be appropriate, but would like to get feedback her...

I took mine to London, which was kinda pointless, considering I had to wear my jacket all the time outside . . . :oops: Ah, but the point is that you knew you were wearing it. Some women claim the wearing frily lingerie makes them feel sexier even if nobody can see it (some men claim the same, but ...

Dark Matter was a huge album and everyone seems to like it. I haven't heard it- post your thoughts after you listen! I am not sure if I have already posted my opinions on this album here, but I really liked it. I saw it discounted and decided to pick it up because I didn't own anything by them. On ...

Regarding The Tangent, I've only heard the latest album, but I was pleasantly surprised. The TFTO influence was not particularly strong to my ears. They seemed to jump from style to style from track to track. I have a review of it at http://www.progreviews.com/reviews/disp ... v=tt-apitq

Farpoint's playing RogueFest this coming weekend; maybe I'll get there in time to hear their set. Which CD of theirs did you review? From Dreaming to Dreaming. I am afraid that I damned them with faint praise. I did however point out that I thought the songs would work well live. I hope you enjoy t...

Recently I got a bunch of CD's to review, so I've been listening to Neil Morse and Farpoint a fair bit in the last week (Neil Morse's album is the equal of many classic Spock's Beard albums, unlike Octane which was only so-so). Having written the review I don't think I'll be listening to Farpoint ag...

I usually find kid runningfox to be worthwhile. He's just become a little jaundiced about symphonic prog recently.
