Re: New Lunatic Soul

This is the best thing I've ever heard with the Lunatic Soul name on it. It's actually pushing towards Riverside territory in the wider use of rock instrumentation and beats (the title track could have been on Rapid Eye Movement, even the bass tone is the same), and the electronic influence is beau...

My favorite album of the decade isn't really up for debate. I'm too attached to one thing totally not right for around here to look fairly. In terms of prog and metal, though, I would say my picks would be between two; either Dream Theater's "A Dramatic Turn Of Events" or Transatlantic's ...

A few thoughts. 1. I agree - this sounds intriguing. Might not be some ground breaking mishmash of definitive prog - but then again it might. Hard to say yet.
