I too heard that the songs were much better live esp. "Lets sleep together"-one I just can't seem to get into that everyone loves. But honestly, part of it is that expectations were so high after IA and DW, but it wasn't until recently that I got "Stupid Dream", and "Warzawa" (live disc which has a lot of "Lightbulb Sun").

I bought nearly all their relases at once and that was too much. It took me a year or so to get trough the hole material in a descent way and to get all phases of the band sorted out. But once into finding all this phases it gets more and more intresting. Very few bands that have developed so much over the years. Another one is GH.

It's so wonderful to find a new band to listen to -- so many albums to choose from . . . :P

Hey,


I've seen these guys live last Friday. They were one of the best proggy things I've seen in my life. Not that I have seen a lot of prog live .. but still. :). They where playing there Music videos in the background and there where a lot of light and smoke effects. If they are in your area I surely recommend seeing them live.

Cheers.

I agree-but its also a trouble spot for those of us that are addicted to good music. For instance, if you like The Flower Kings, then that opens up the door for The Tangent(A great band IMO), and all four of their CD's are good, and Karmakanic-both of their CD's are great, and it goes on and on. The door to all of the new prog was opened to me thru Dream Theater-which led me to Transatlantic-to Spock's Beard-to Neal Morse, and so on.........
