Re: Watching Twelfth Night - "Live From London" DVD recorded in 1984 waking me up...

Larry, if you are willing to give this band a second chance, "Fact And Fiction" is their best album by far... Took me some time to get into but now I love it!

Re: Queensryche new album & tour with Fates Warning

Don't you guys remember the Fates Warning / Dream Theater / Queensryche tour from back in the early 2000s? Granted, it was square in the middle of the 'Ryche's "ugly" era, but the set list was pretty much similar to the Live Evolution covering a lot of the old stuff...... I do remember, I...

Maybe Melodic metal with a progressive touch?

If we translate word by word: "erreur typographique" which is ok to say but I have never said that this way in my life... Most common way to say it would be "faute de frappe".

Re: Have we already talked about the neo-prog band Anubis from Australia?

I added the band to my website in the neo-prog section.
To me, "A Tower Of Silence" is truly their best album. It's like Sylvan's "Posthumous Silence".
"The Second Hand" comes second. I don't care much about the other 2 studio albums (1st and 3rd).

For me the best is to buy CDs and rip them in flac. At least go flac all the way and convert the flac files to the format you want and the bitrate you want when needed. If you change your mind about the format or the bitrate, simply repeat the process, no problem, your source is perfect (flac files)...
