The Copenhagen school says yes.

But did playing the song change the song, too? Is the CD I am going to buy going to bear any resemblance to the original Platonic form of the music?

"Schrodinger’s Lament" -- Is this after the box is finally opened and the alive/dead kitty has become only a dead kitty? You beat me to the punch. If they are careful how they open the box, kitty could survive... On the other hand, if they don't open the box, kitty is both alive and dead. Clearly t...

Well, at least you agree that it would be a cool idea, even if it never does come to fruition. Maybe you could just print the cardboard sleeve and put in a piece of plastic shaped like a vinyl. No, seriously, I would totally buy it! That's a great idea. Think back to the vinyl releases (for the eld...

For those of us who are slaves to the Queen of the Netherlands and other harsh taskmasters, and had business conflicts to prevent our attending the concert, the video is like salve to our wounds.

From what I've heard of Camel, they just didn't have enough... I don't know... "oomph" for my tastes, though perhaps that's just what I heard. That is a fair statement. Having said that, you might be intrigued by Camel's Stationary Traveller. It is a concept album about the people who tried to esca...

Anywho, if I buy a Flower Kings album soon, it will probably be Stardust We Are, though I don't know yet (I don't like spending money on a whim). I'll continue looking into it. You really can't go wrong with Stardust We Are. If you haven't found Retropolis, it is well worth a listen. The music on i...

I'll be honest: it takes me a while longer to really get and/or like songs above the fifteen minute mark. BTGB started out that way, but it's probably now my second favorite Glass Hammer song. You have no idea what's coming when the classical music starts you off, heh. And those versus right after ...

I have to admit that, given that music is such a total abstraction in the first place, I have a deep affection for lyrics that are equally abstract. Obviously lyrics can have a great power to convey ideas and I'm all about that as well but it can really give a melody a lot of power when the other s...

Re: Todd Rundgren

You hate to admit it cause why???? It was so long ago and you're so old like the rest of us? I saw YES in 1975-my first real rock show!When I see those like Todd and the other 60something rockers still rocking out it makes me feel younger! Bingo. I watched the Beatles live on Ed Sullivan. That kind...

It's an alternate way of looking at it. We're know that some people are going to remain emotionally attached to the original version and that's great. But really, it's no more different than, say, having the live version of Knight Of The North as another way of hearing the piece. :) I will always r...

Re: Todd Rundgren

Rock icon Todd Rundgren will be in Chattanooga at Rhythm n Brews April Fools Day(No joke). Todd had a progressive period with Utopia in the mid-late 70's including one of my desert island discs, "RA".Still can't believe he's coming here,have to catch this one! I hate to admit it, but I saw Todd dur...
