Re: Top 10 List Post Prog Power........

Hekz? :shock: *** I'm embarrassed to say that I lost the disc in the packing up of my collection recently - and can't find it anywhere ..... I've got the case, not the disc itself. I'm sure I doubled up another CD case with it by accident ....... for that reason, I can't play it - and haven't playe...

Manimal / Purgatorio .......

No one seems to be talking about the new Manimal ....... especially after their great set at PP. Normally, I would pass on this band right away as it seems to 80's for me, but even though I loved Trapped in the Shadows, I believe that the new one actually outdoes that one for me. This disc is right ...
