    Thanks for the comprehensive write-up. Fripp's a bright, interesting character, but I do find the whole 'KC isn't all about me/this is the first band that doesn't resent Robert' shtick rather hard to...

    I enjoyed the Seaven Teares album, although it doesn't reach the Extra Life heights for me.

    I'm not sure why I regard them as a guilty pleasure, but I can understand why some people find them offputting. Restoration/Ascension/Wills are just so fun and uplifting though, especially if you're...

    Thanks for trying for sort it for us, Bob. I'll wait as patiently as I can, by which I mean checking Bandcamp every hour or so.

    Probably Nivraym, then Angherr followed by Viva for me. Very hard to decide between Angherr and Nivraym though. I still haven't heard Hundred Sights!

    I love Parallax (I think it's a little more developed and more consistent than MBGATE, but they're both great). Absolutely progressive in my eyes, the guy probably doesn't get the recognition he...

    As for the vocals, I absolutely love her tone (she could sing anything and I'd probably listen), but I can see...

    Still working my way through it (if you call listening to nothing else for the past week 'working through'), and man, it is great! I could see it having a broader appeal than Fine Particles,...

    Yeah, I'd agree. I can imagine there's some crossover between fans of both, but not really any musical similarity.

    If you missed it, Routine Maintenance was played on Deep Cuts #146. It's...really, really good. Very excited for the new album.

    For some reason I thought Sensual Con was an old song that has been floating around for a while. Anyone know? Still love it, just curious.

    Both albums are strong, I think (the second, Good Things, perhaps slightly better to my ears). Love the vocal work too. Fun band, I'd recommend them!

    Kavus' voice sounds fine to me too. It's a good point on his words, there's some nice turns of phrase there!

    They have some cool ideas. 'Fuck the makeup, skip the shower' is great. Otherwise, a bit patchy.

    I admit, Babylon are a guilty pleasure, so I can't agree. But if you don't like Babylon Dude, how about the singer from Cathedral (US prog cathedral, not the other one)?

    The download price is so low I assumed I'd made a mistake and ordered a sampler or something at first (I'm not complaining!). Cool to see they're coming to Europe and not that far away either!

    I'm a little on the fence about this one, but then I admit I prefer herky-jerky dissonant Echolyn to all-grown-up-americana Echolyn. Mind, I learned to love Mei, and the last album was pretty good.
