    I've given up trying to figure out what they are, it's such a bizarre but wonderful, dense mix. Still don't have the new one, but I'll try to get it sometime this month.

    Saw them at Rosfest, didn't like the singer at all. I found them boring overall, just lacking any kind of spark.

    Congrats on reaching the goal! And since I wanted to do my part, I just added another 25 to the total. A great band like yours that is as fan friendly and down to earth is easy to help out.

    How is he not?! The ELP bashing on PE is downright insane at times. If there is a legendary drummer in the prog world, Palmer certainly is one of them. One of the all-time greats.

    It's small, just like everywhere else. I think some people believe if a region has a lot of prog bands, it means that prog is popular there. Sadly that is not the case.
