Ah! I should really play that one again some day.

np: The Pineapple Thief - The Wilderness  8)

And since Gavin Harrison is playing on this album, I REALLY have to check it out! They're leaving me no choice!

Today I listened to:

The Dear Hunter - "Act V: Hymns With The Devil In Confessional"
That's it! I'm going to edit my best of 2016 list! ;D
This is sooooooo catchy! It's too prog to be mainstream, but I think everybody could like this if they are a bit open minded.

Also listened to Cirrus Bay - "Places Unseen" on Spotify again. It's really beautiful and reminds me of Hackett/Genesis playing in the style of Yes with the singer of Renaissance. If you like some of these bands, you should check it out.

Evership - "Evership" on Spotify

Along with The Dear Hunter, this might be my biggest discovery of 2016. Thanks Teunis! And perhaps you should give it another chance too!

JP:
The Dear Hunter - "Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise" on Spotify
This album from 2015 is just as good as Act V. Man, it's as if I've hit a goldmine. I'm digging this! ;D

NP:
The Jelly Jam - "Prophet Profit" on Spotify
This is also a pretty nice listen. Anyone familiar with The Jelly Jam? I have their first album and like it quite a bit. I've always wanted to get their second album, but couldn't find it anywhere. Their third album was also very hard to get, haven't heard it. They're both on Spotify now of course. So this is their fourth album already. And from what I've heard, this might even be their best!

I think this song is pretty cool:

They'll be touring Europe in April/May. They'll hit The Netherlands just when I'm on holidays :-\. Too bad, I would definitely go. Tour dates can be read here.

Earlier today I was listening to:

There's some latin rhythms hidden in this album. Also some banjo. More and more subtleties are being revealed to me.

Now listening to a playlist of J.S. Bach church organ music on Spotify. Can't listen to it all day, but really appreciate it on a sunday evening. ;D

I was playing Redemption - The Art Of Loss, but changed it immediately when I read of the passing of John Wetton, one of my favourite singers.

So np in his memory:
Asia - Asia (the debut album is still my favourite Asia album with JW on vocals)

R.I.P. John :'(

I also played Asia's first album yesterday. What a singer! And what a loss. I also know him from King Crimson ("Red" is possibly my favourite KC album) and was surprised and glad to hear he was on Ayreon's "The Theory Of Everything" where he did a great job playing the psychiatrist.

I'm afraid so. I was hoping 2017 wouldn't be as shocking as 2016 :-\.

There's so much in this album. Many different moods and various instruments and styles. Singer reminds me of Flying Colors which is funny because they're both called Casey. But he also sounds like the guy from Pure Reason Revolution.

Maddox, how would you rate this album?

Yes - "Going For The One"
Really like the epic: Awaken.

Vangelis - "Rosetta"
Arrived in the mailbox yesterday. I've listened to it a few times on Spotify and was not immediately impressed, but hey, it's Vangelis! So I bought it anyway when it was a good price.
Now it's doing better! It has a bit of an "El Greco" feel to it sometimes.
Nothing quite touches his "Blade Runner" or "Conquest Of Paradise" soundtracks, but under the right circumstances this album is really nice. It's better than the (in my opinion overrated) "Chariots Of Fire".

jp: Seti - Bold Travels

It has got the highest rate 'Vette Krent' from iO-pages. and Clive Nolan, Damian Wilson and Steve Rothery are playing/singing on the album. Sometimes it reminds me of Arena (except from the track with female vocals), sometime it's a bit tame. It's a prog band from Chile. Not bad at all, but needs more listenings to give a fair opinion.

np: Voices Form The Fuselage - Odyssey ~ The Destroyer Of Worlds

Also hightest rate from iO-pages. John Mitchell played a solo on the album and produced it. Just started, too soon to say anything about it :).

Thanks to Spotify, always in for new music  8).

Tohpati Ethnomission - "Mata Hati"
Very nice instrumental Jazz-Rock Fusion from Indonesia.

Check it out!

Pretty relaxing music, and very original.
