    Well, since we are apparently reviving this 5 year old thread, seem my original reply below. It still applies. This is one of the greatest albums of all time in any genre as far as I'm concerned. ...

    A close friend who I met though my current work had no online footprint. Well, virtually none, since she was a database programmer like myself and we have work email we have to use. She was...

    That was my feeling as well. Though Numbers has grown on me somewhat over the years. My previous least favorite was A Love Supreme, which I listened to recently. I still don't care for it,...

    In regards to Roine's lyrics, I've always enjoyed them for the most part, and I'm a native English speaker. There ARE phrases that I feel like he returns to a bit too often over the years though. I...

    Good interview! Sounds like Anderson/Stolt isn't coming out anytime soon though, which is a bit of a bummer. Though I guess a new TFK album and a new TA album will make up for that a bit! At least...

    I think he meant he had put in his order with Ken. Not that he had received the order. Mine certainly hasn't arrived or even shipped yet (also ordered from Ken).

    I'm glad it's not just me. I'm having trouble getting into this album because it gives me ear fatigue (or seems to, anyway). Still, there are parts that have stuck out to me as being quite good,...

    Yeah, I have always loved poking fun at my favorite genre(s). One of the problems with prog is that many fans and bands have taken it WAY too seriously over the years (I used to be one of those...
