*** I had just received an order from The Lasers Edge the other day and this was not there - or I just didn't see it. But I'm with you, it sounds like something I would buy blind after reading that review.......

I'm off to research it - and see if it is the "new" Mecca of Neo-Prog ............ :D

Jay --

Two things ---

1) You can stream "This Winter Machine" here: http://progstreaming.nl/

2) You can also stream the new Knight Area there as well, and I highly recommend that you do........ :wink:

Thanks for this. I'm a BIG neo-prog fan, especially Fish-era Marillion and Arena, so this sounds immediately good for me. I'll digest this one and come back to comment some more!

I streamed the whole disc - and I wasn't blown away like I was hoping. Of course, this was limited to laptop speakers, and I could tell that it was an excellent production, but I was looking for that massive, epic feeling that the reviewer gave, and I didn't get it. Again, I have vowed not to make final judgements based on laptop listening, so I will get into the disc further if possible.

That said - I'm still recommending the new Knight Area as some of the best Neo-Prog / Prog Rock I've heard in some time.......
