LOB is a blind buy for me, so I've already pre-ordered this. I'm not bothering to listen to the samples, I'll just wait for the whole disc.

Re: Ayreon Universe - The Best Of Live

I watched this last night and holy shit it's good. As I said I've never been the biggest fan of Ayreon's disks, but this was on a whole different level. One of the best performances I've ever seen. It reminded me of a Broadway musical it was so well done. I mean, everything about it was nearly perfe...

Re: Conception back with classic line-up!

Re: 1988: More metal bands starting to add a progressive element to their music... (other albums of the 80s also accepte

I think whether something is metal, rock, progressive, etc. is not a binary question that can only be answered TRUE or FALSE. I didn't typically consider Rush a metal band however there is no denying that lots of their songs had heavy elements that could certainly be considered metal. So yes, Rush d...

Supposedly Royal Hunt released a new CD on February 21. I'm surprised there has been zero buzz about it. I haven't been able to find a CD copy for sale at any of my usual sources. Looks like you can buy it directly from the band, but I'm wondering why it's not available elsewhere yet. Has anyone hea...

It is kind of sad, but I haven't looked at CDs in a Best Buy in many, many years. So this doesn't really impact me.

I'll tell you, I haven't heard a note of this and have no interest at all. I barely tolerate Christmas music and certainly wouldn't voluntarily listen to it. Even Tarja couldn't possibly make the worst Christmas song of all times, Feliz Navidad, appealing to me. Yes I know, Bah Humbug.
