Re: Yes - this board is now 14 years old .......

They even let me in after I got rather drunk on their booze and blathered for way too long! Clearly they have questionable judgement in people, but I think it's offset by the generally excellent taste in music.

Re: Dreyelands - Stages

Damned good tune. It's good to see that the Hungarian metal scene is still cranking out some fantastic prog. A 7 euro ask for 5 songs is on the high side so hopefully they're all similar length.

I'm pretty much with Larry on this one. I don't even need to buy it because I know what it is and that I wouldn't listen to it more than once. I'm happy that Youngblood has a solid career in a niche in an industry that doesn't really like to grant them. I'm glad the formula works. But...it's just no...

Hahahaha, no worries. I know full well that I'm pretty much the only person consistently wielding that particular hot take.

I didn't comment on Shaman either, but I agree that it's disappointing that it just sort of fizzled. There was a lot of promise there. I do quite enjoy Ed's solo albums though.

Aviations - The Light Years

More Berklee kids grow up and make prog metal. The grooves on this album are infectious as hell. I wish the singer's voice had more...body. But that's my only real complaint.

This is probably too modern for some of you *cough*.
