Knight Area / Heaven and Beyond ......

Just when you thought it was safe to say, " how much Knight Area do I really need ? ", it's not. This is one of those bands that continue to amaze me in that every disc is a winner, and continues to fly under the radar like Subsignal. Those of you who follow the band - we have another winn...

Re: Brainstrom -Ambiguity (also posted on pmx)

Im in the Soul Temptation camp as far as the best Brainstorm disc....... they came on strong, and then started to fizzle after their legendary performance at Prog Power....... that show will always be talked about as far as best shows of Prog Power. They were one of the bands that had the whole plac...

Re: My top 35 of 2016 (better late than never...)

Great list G !!! Who knew that we would have 3 bands in our top 10 together ? You need to stop hanging around with Stevie -- I think he forced you to put that Michael Sweet on your list ......... :wink:

Re: Now this is vintage DT...

I would assume that they are taking this "25th Images and Words anniversary" show to the States ? Or is it just a Europe thing ? The only dates listed on their site are for Europe, nothing more in the news there...... anyone have any scoop that I missed ?

I'm still playing this disc to death. I find that surprising. Didn't think you were a Neal Morse kinda guy... ***I'm not -- but I love this disc. I can't put my finger on it, because I really don't care for Neal's voice, and normally that would be a deal breaker for me under any circumstances. Some...

This will likely finish in my top 10 for the year. All of their albums are great. I really don't get the lack of talk about them. ***I would imagine that the download-only thing probably has something to do with it ........ this is tasty, melodic, traditional prog metal even in download mode .......

Re: IQ / Scrape Across the Sky ...... Bluray

Bluray is Bluray. There is no PAL/NTSC. That's what I thought until today. Looks likes this is not the case when it's interlaced. In Europe 1080i 50 hz exists. In America it's 1080i 60 hz. When it's 1080p, it's all the same all over the world. ***You are both correct....... technically there is no ...

I voted physical -- and while everyone has their opinion on why they do what they do, I think it is simple in reason why most people who vote for digital do it -- convenience / travel / storage.
