Well, I love Alexa, but I want the damn disc in my hand so I can see things.....like the new Re...

I added the band to my website in the neo-prog section. To me, "A Tower Of Silence" is truly their best album. It's like Sylvan's "Posthumous Silence". "The Second Hand" comes second. I don't care much about the other 2 studio albums (1st and 3rd). *** I'll check out T...
