    I take advantage of many of the tools that the internet offers: full-length versions of songs/albums if available, samples if not, and reviews. I didn't have these options in the 60's, 70's, 80's and...

    Very impressive. And the arrangements of the songs were not cheesy, which I really didn't expect from a Russian singing competition TV show. She could do some great prog.

    I remember hearing "One of These Days" a lot on the radio when this came out. Weird choice for radio play. For decades, I thought the lyrics were "One of these days, I'm going to dance with the king...

    I knew a woman back in the 70's who had no interest whatsoever in prog, had no idea who King Crimson was, but she had that Sinfield album in her small collection, and she bought it based on the album...

    Wow, Jon's voice is totally different (except when he talks). Weird that neither the lower register nor the occasional raspy/growly inflections would surface at all in Yes.

    Though I've never compiled a "top ten" or even a "top 100" albums in my collection (just too difficult and no payoff for having done it anyway), this is the first album I think of when I think about...

    Like so many others my age, this was the "entry point" to Zappa. I had listened to my older brother's copy of "Freak Out" in 1969 or 1970, but I didn't like it at all. My musical tastes were still...

    Back to the Bars is a good live album; my Castle remastered CD sounds very good. I also have King Biscuit Flower Hour on CD, another winner. And of course the first two Utopia albums.
