Re: Where to start to see if I like the band Mystery?

Gaetan - what he said. Delusion Rain is astoundingly good. If you don't like that disc, I doubt you will like Mystery at all even though Benoit David sings on the previous few discs...... with, The World is a Game being the best of them as outprogged said. With your journey into Neo-Prog, this band ...

Re: Kansas live

I'm a purist when it comes to this band......so without Steve Walsh, I cant do it....... That said, the new singer is excellent and he hits the old notes that Steve couldn't....... Ive seen some online clips of him doing it live, and from,what I read, the magic of the Kansas sound is still in tact.....

Re: Prospekt - The Illuminated Sky

This is quite solid, very well played, & might go on my purchase list. But the band does suffer a bit from Circus Maximus syndrome in wearing their influences on their sleeves. Not the most original songs in the world, but still fun to listen to. ***I'm glad someone else hears the Circus Maximu...
