Re: I'm stuck in a 3-way decision for disc of the year......

Heh
I cheat and break it down into tiers unless there is a clear cut by a mile.number one for me.
(Anathema-Distant Satellites was my last clear cut winner)

So my top tier is probably going go be Kingcrow,Redemption and the Conception EP

Re: Haken - Vector - my track-by-track review

We get it, you hate the Haken singer. FYI if you are interested, they have several great instrumental songs, plus instrumental version of their records including Vector. So the setlist is not really the fault of Haken and hipsters after all. :wink: Hate is a strong word - he isn’t horrible, just we...

Re: Haken - Vector - my track-by-track review

Just to throw in a couple of pennies here, having seen the Haken\Leprous gig in Tampa last night. Leprous just owned the evening. Flawless. The vocals were just jaw-dropping. Absolutely perfect. For Haken, I will say that between the two latest releases, I have probably given Vector more play time....

Re: Conception back with classic line-up!

Yup, it’s the single (a short intro and two real songs). It’s also available on iTunes for those who didn’t use the pledge campaign. Sounds great - definitely more in the “Flow” vein than “Parallel Minds”/“In Your Multitude” style. This is laid back prog, no power metal. Then this is right up my al...

Re: Haken - Vector - my track-by-track review

I want to like this band so bad. I've tried for a long time, but the vocals are like nails on a chalkboard to me. Similar situation with Leprous, for some reason the vocals just don't work for me. As Todd said, vocals are very polarizing and very personal. I can't explain why I like Geddy Lee &...

Re: Haken - Vector - my track-by-track review

Many of these mind of prog bands seem to have a unique style of vocalist that ends up giving the band an unique stamp.
Even going back to Rush with Geddy Lee.
Ross is a perfect fit

Re: New Riverside in September....

Think some of you might be underrating this album a touch. I don't think the loss of the second guitarist is really obvious. The more noticeable change for me is the diminished role for the keyboards. There's a more stripped-down, acoustic feel to large sections of this album, although _LFTM_ previ...
