    I love 31Knots. They were progressive as hell and wrote great songs!!! I thought I was the only one on here hip to their awesomeness.

    One of the most underrated albums ever!!! Joe Haege is a guitar god. And he got to play a hipster on Portlandia, lamenting the music choices at a day care center: "What?!! Phil Collins?!! No Neu? No Faust?" His kids couldn't possibly attend. Great stuff. I wonder what he's up to these days...

    That was a great episode! Was that the one with Matt Berry, where he's performing kids' songs in concert?

    Yup. I dig them. Saw them in 2005 even. Killer show. Randomly pulled out some CDs thebother day. Ended up ordering some more because Polyvinyl Records is having a crazy sale. Another Polyvinyl band I love is Aloha. Have all their albums and have seen them twice. Aloha and 31Knots would have been a killer double bill.

    44 years on I finally gave a listen to I Robot by Alan Parsons. I'd say he's better at engineering and production. It's kinda like Pink Floyd without the good songs.

    Yes - Live In The House Of Blues - The Ladder tracks are underrated and enjoyable.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Wow. I think that might be their best album. I would say give it a few more spins. If you really can't get into it though then APP might not be for you.

    I like the first two songs after the opening instrumental which is pretty weak. Anyway, even if I don't love it, I'm glad to have a copy. I must have picked up the CD and put it back at least ten times over the years.

    You think the opening instrumental is weak? I personally like the groove to it. Anyway, glad you decided to keep it and check it out every once in a while. I find parts are similar to PF's Atom Heart Mother and maybe DSOTM.

    Yes, track for track it is probably their zenith (and most prog leaning, in my view). I mean "The Voice", come on!! And "Don't Let It Show" is an awe-inspiring cut that remains one of their best as well.

    Y'all are getting' too eclectic. You do know that there's a Prog-Rock penalty box, right?

    "Some other time" is maybe my favorite but those two are also very good. It's a definite classic imo and one that most open minded prog fans should be able to enjoy.
