    Yeah, I still have to get that one. I know I'm missing Afghan, which I think was recorded the same week as their NEARfest appearance, and so I just never got around to getting it, but I believe I have all their "regular" album releases, if you will.

    ^^^ I would get Swamp of Dreams while you can. The website says limited edition of 500. It's been out for what, 4-5 months? Surprised they haven't sold out yet. An excellent addition to the collection!

    I really like Djam Karet but at times the lead guitar seems a little too...frantic. For this kind of music I prefer something with a little more restraint, like Future Kings of England or Vietgrove. Don't get me wrong, I've got three of their albums and play them fairly often.

    Great band, I'll recommend

    The Devouring
    Recollection Harvest
    A Night For Baku
    Suspension & Displacement
    Ian

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    there's something so unique and wonderful about Suspension And Displacement that I always recommend it when a DK thread comes up

    S&D is totally different from their usual fare, it was the Yang release to Burning's Yin
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    It was a cool concept. After Reflections from the Firepool, they split their sound in two: the trippy-spacey sound, and the hard rock sound, and simultaneously released an album of each. Both are great, but very different experiences.

    It's a very good 'live in the studio' album. I think it really showcases the band's chops, and how cohesive they sound together.

    Dang, I haven't thought about these guys in a while. Don't recall exactly which albums I have but I should dig them out and give 'em a spin again. Good stuff!

    From the description on Bandcamp it sounds like this will be great, and the bonus remixes welcome. I'm wondering when the download version will go on presale.

    Today is payday and the week was hell. This order was a reward to myself.

    Your package should have a slip of paper with the URL/code on it.
