Von Hertzen Brothers - War Is Over

What a beautiful album 8). The opener and title track 'War Is Over' is epic. Recommended  *horns*

It is.
One of the best releases last year. Highly recomended. :)

Toto - 40 Trips Around The Sun

Another collection, but all the tracks remastered. I'm hearing sounds I didn't here before and 3 new songs. Well worth it, especially for a Toto fan like me  *horns* 8) ;).

Kino - Radio Voltaire

It arrived, bought it yesterday.

Nice!

Yesterday I went to the concert of Barock Project in "De Boederij", Zoetermeer (which was awesome by the way). As always, there was the stand of the Beyond Rock shop where I bought the following:
- King Crimson - "Red" (40th anniversary edition)
- Echolyn - "I Heard You Listening"
- Exxos - "Dune: Spice Opera"

I always felt a gap in my collection and that's because of King Crimson. Now I finally have an album by this amazing and important Prog band. "Red" is in 8th place on Progarchives' top albums of all time. Fortunately this album was only 10 euros, because most of the time I find them too expensive. Now I need "In The Court Of The Crimson King" and "The Power To Believe" and then I have at least what I think are the essential King Crimson albums (for me).

Echolyn is a band that I heard a lot about. When I was in my discovery phase (roughly between 2004 and 2007) I listened to "The End Is Beautiful" and it really connected with me. As with a lot of bands, I did not invest much time in it and in the end I lost them a bit. Their (second) self titled album went by somewhat unnoticed by me. But last year I discovered them again with their 2015 album "I Heard You Listening". What a nice album!! Please listen, if you don't know them yet. Bought it for 18 euros, which is not cheap, but well worth it.

Okay, the last one is also very interesting. "Dune: Spice Opera" by Exxos, which is essentially a French guy called Stéphane Picq. Why is this so special? Well, firstly because it's an early nineties video game soundtrack which reminds me a litle bit of Zoolook-era Jean Michel Jarre. And I think it's very charming.
Secondly because it was 5 euros, and, in total (with the other cd's) the seller rounded it up to thirty euros. So in the end I only paid 2 euros for this album.
Lastly, but certainly not the least. This is a very special find, because this is an extremely rare album! It has somewhat of a cult-status among fans of the Dune books/movie/games. I just looked at eBay and prices vary between 60 and 200 euros. Ha! Unreal! Not that I plan to sell this album.


Since I haven't posted a lot in this thread in the last couple of months I thought it would be nice to summarize my purchases:
Perfect Beings - "Vier"
Big Big Train - "Merry Christmas"
Tiger Moth Tales - "The Depths Of Winter"
Neal Morse - "Life & Times"
Magnum - "Lost On The Road To Eternity"
The Flower Kings - "A Kingdom Of Colours" Boxset

So many good music releases!

You were there as well?
Darn, me too!!!  :o

Great concert, a bit short but the singer Alex Mari really impressed me.
Had a great time. :)

Oh no! :o We could've teamed up! What a missed opportunity! :-[
I was at the right side of the stage. Perfect view on the guitarist! 8)

You got any other concerts planned in the near future? Neal Morse in Utrecht perhaps?

Yeah the singer impressed me a LOT! What an amazing singer!
Indeed it was a bit short. I've seen the setlist on the mixing desk and I think they planned to do Hocus Pocus (a Focus song) as an encore, but in the end they didn't. And I had a feeling that the piano sound was a bit distorted, probably because of the loudness. Other than that, I think it was amazing!

Yes, that's indeed unfortunate.
I started almost at the center of the stage, but after the rather long break I ended up a little bit on the left.
I think I did see you though I didn't know it was the PH from the Room at that time. ;)

No, probably not Neal Morse, but I want to attend at the Terry Bozio concert in Utrecht in May.
And I am going to the Roger Waters show in Ziggo dome, Iron Maiden in Arnhem and Judas Priest in 013, Tilburg.

Hocus Pocus would've been amazing!!  ;D
I didn't notice the piano sound being a bit distorted. I though it was part of the show.

I was with a colleague of mine. She's kind of hard to overlook, if you get what I mean. ;) Very cool girl though, likes a lot of Prog music that I like. 8)

That's a lot. But there's one thing I don't get... No Arena? :o Is that an error? ::)
I'm (almost definitely) going to the 4th of May Arena gig in Zwolle. (Commemoration concert? ;D ) Not at the 12th (they'll play Zoetermeer), because I'm on a little holiday then! *horns*

Hocus Pocus would've been amazing!!  ;D

Yup, someone had written it on the setlist with a pen. Probably just for fun...

I didn't notice the piano sound being a bit distorted. I though it was part of the show.

I think it probably had to do with the place where I was standing. Some sort of doppler effect I guess.
