My favorite thrash band. Especially since they are one of very few old thrashers who still puts out decent albums.
Absolutely splendid band, and Thijs is a genius in the true sense of the word.
The best album by the best prog metal band ever. Absolutely staggering stuff.
Superb. Second only to "The Wake" IMO.
5. Jethro Tull
8. King Crimson
9. The Soft Machine
11. Pink Floyd
Superb. SX is pretty much the best powerprog-band out there.
Re: The "Spirit" Band Thread
So far I've only made myself familiar with this album. Strange and interesting stuff. :grinthumb
A modern prog masterpiece. (Btw, it was released in 2007. You have a typo, joe.)
Yup. But I actually think they deserve it - at their best.
Fair enough. That's a position shared by quite a few prog-enthusiasts.
A beautiful effort from the scottish neo-proggers. IMO, Pallas at their best are as good as IQ, Pendragon and - dare I say it -...
I also recommend that you check out Think Like A Mountain. Excellent stuff.
Tbh, I see Asia as a skilled AOR-band rather than a progband.
As far as AOR goes, this is good stuff. I'll give it an 8.
Awesome band. One of the five best doom-bands for sure.
Beyond the Crimson Horizon is an incredible masterpiece.
On the twelfth of january the great Ray Price will be 85 years old.
I repeat: 85!

I can almost guarantee it, LG. :D
Ritual is a Swedish band in the folk-prog genre, although they often sound more like Yes than Jethro Tull.
Anyway, the album in question...
Hmm, I should probably check Gnidrolog out.
Classic stuff, there. The yardstick all other rock/symphonic-collaborations are measured against. :cheers2
Re: What are you listening to Vol 8
I got inspired by a thread in the metal section.
Average. My favorite Opeth-release is actually this one:
Re: Trans Siberian Orchestra
Savatage is easily one of the best bands ever.
RIP Criss Oliva.
Heh, impossible really, but I'll give it a shot:
Pagan Altar - Lords of Hypocrisy (2004)
British doom/NWOBHM band that formed in...
Superb. The fourth best Kansas-album, actually. :tup:
1. Point of Know Return
5. Song for...
Good, but this bands great appeal continue to puzzle me somewhat.
