    If you don't start the video, you won't know that it features not only Todd Rundgren, but also Rick Wakeman, and Tony Levin! That's practically a supergroup. And the cover is pretty good1

    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    I did start the video. Other than Wakey's noodlings there's nothing new here.

    As for the visuals ... let's just say I kept waiting for the TARDIS to show up...

    The lineup for the whole album is pretty amazing.

    Is this old or did they fly in some stuff from Edgar Froese and work around it? Like PF did on Endless River with Rick Wright's pieces.

    Huh... going into that video I didn't expect much... But, I actually kind of like it. Levin's bass line is nice and Rick is Rick plus there's Todd. I'm just a little confused about the concept of a prog related tribute album without Billy Sherwood or Robert Berry being involved. Is this a first?

    I would prefer a tribute album of terrible bar-bands doing covers. At least it would be funny once.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Refreshing, ain't it?

    I'm curious about Rik Emmett on WYWH. I assume he plays acoustic and sings it.

    It appears to be all recent recordings. Not sure how the Froese contribution will work.

    Well if he appears on the album, he's better than Tupoc, since Edgar died OVER 6 years ago...
