Postby christianopel » 06 Oct 2008, 18:28

Well to continue with the old topic and we can see what's going on in the progworld.

Mine's are:

Pocupine Tree, "In Absentia"
Magic Eden, debut ( There one and only cd from Ad VandenBurg with former Whitesnake musician's).
Uli Jon Roth: "Beyond Astral Sky's "
and the new one: "Under a Dark Sky" 70% classical.

And the last cd from ( Dutch progrockband) Timelock: "Buildings " a very good/relaxed piece of music with beautiful guitarwork.Very recommendable!!!

Neal Morse - Lifeline

Great album!

Presto Ballet - The Lost Art of Time Travel

Better than the first.....


Looking forward to buying a copy of the new Pendragon (Pure) as well as the new Karmakanic, provided I can find them available somewhere in the USA, my usual sources don't have anything about them yet.

Aren't there a few more side projects coming out from the FK members this year?

Bought Belinda Carlisle's last cd, Voila at the weekend.
Very good indeed. It's a collection of French songs, all sung in French (obviously!) and sounding very authentic actually.
Belinda has given the songs a nice modern pop twist and the album works very well indeed, imo.
I got the special edition, which includes a bonus disc featuring English versions of four of the songs off the main album. A nice touch. ;)

Only her first album to get now, then I've got the lot. And very good they all are too. :)

@dtscape, maybe you are the wrong person to ask viewing your 'nick' but what do you think of Chaos in Motion ?,
i am not too impressed by overall sound/picture quality of this set. only realy good looking/sounding parts are
the ones from Rotterdam... some other parts on this dvd even look/sound a bit 'bootleg-ish' not quite something
you would expect from the so-called masters of prog-metal ?...

Good (simple & repetitive) music from Philip Glass, but he's not a virtuoso on the piano (as we can hear some mistakes here and there):

@christianopel

The new Todd is quite good actually, at 1st i was thinking it had a little bit too much 'loud' tracks on it but now after a few listens
i'm really beginning to like the album... very good sound and excellent production, just like in the 'old' days Todd plays al the instruments
if i would have to point you in some direction... i would say it's a kind of loud/modern version of 'Hermit of mink hollow' with some Utopia
sauce (from the 4-piece period -> no 'Ra' but 'Road to Utopia' etc..)

I've ordered (but not received yet) Big Big Train - Gathering Speed.

I have this in mp3 format, but it's too good not to have the original. :D

Thanks Symfoon, sorry for this late reaction but i don't look that regular on this part of the forum. I like "the Road to "it's more direct rock,it's good with allso the harmony's.

I think you pult me over the line for this album.

I read that LIAR is allso a good album.

Well, my Big Big Train cd arrived, but I've decided to give it to a mate of mine for Christmas. I'll reorder it in a month or two for myself.
Meanwhile, I've also received Millenium's finest album (imo) - Numbers And The Big Dream Of Mr Sunders.
I've had a copy of this album for a while, but it's so good I wanted the original. Played it today in work and it sounds superb.

Wowie, Millenium are a very good Polish band. Been going for quite a few years, it seems, as they've had six or seven albums, including a double compilation of various tracks and rarities called - '7 Years - Novelties, Rarities and the Best'. And a 'mini' album called 'Three Brothers Epilogue'.
Some are better than others, and I've never heard their first two albums, but they are impressive at times, with a distinctive, clear singer and some good guitar work.
For me, 'Numbers And The Big Dream Of Mr Sunders', from 2006, is their best work, with probably 'Reincarnations' as my second favourite. (They have a new one out now called 'Exist', I think, but I don't have that yet.)
Plenty of melody in their stuff, and I'd definitely check them out. 8-)

@Christianopel, that's correct Liar is an excellent album with quite 'modern' Todd-songs and also with quite some 'political-weight' when it comes to
the lyrics!, hence the album-title ;)

I have copies of these, but seeing as they are my two favourite Focus albums, I just had to get the originals. :)
