Neal Morse - "The Similitude Of A Dream"

Whoa! This is so complete. It has everything! I listened to the first disc and then had a break and listened to the second disc. The break was not voluntary, I can listen to this double album back to back and on repeat. Is this Neal Morse's best album? Possibly...

Psicolorama - "The White Sun" (on Spotify)
Just started this. First track is pretty relaxed with a saxophone. A Psychedelic band from Spain.

Today I had a day off from work. Sounds great huh? But it just means that I have to work this Saturday.
Anyway, home alone, so time for music!

Kevin Gilbert - "Thud"
A small masterpiece this one.

Chroma Key - "Graveyard Mountain Home"
Very relaxed.

Angra - "Holy Land"
I really like it. Must try out other Angra albums one day.

Blackmore's Night - "The Village Lanterne"
When I'm in the mood for medieval(-ish) music, this will do the trick.

The Dear Hunter - Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise
The Dear Hunter - Act V: Hymns With The Devil In Confessional

At the moment I have a slight preference for the latter, but these are both very very very good albums! Check them out if you haven't already!

I will give them a (second) chance, but first I will have to play the following album on repeat. It was released last Friday:

Knight Area - Heaven And Beyond  8)
'I will surrender my heart to the sky
Oh, our love doesn't end here, it lives forever on the wings of time'

Tomorrow!  *horns* *horns* *horns*

It's been a while already, but how was it?

Knight Area - Heaven And Beyond  8)

Time to check out this band.

I played earlier:
A.C.T - "Circus Pandemonium"
This band should be so much bigger. Every song of every album is good! I'm sure it's on YouTube somewhere... ;)

Vangelis -"Rosetta"
It's really growing on me. This melodic ambient work was a nice and welcome change after the more uptempo A.C.T.

Now listening to:
Cirrus Bay - "Places Unseen"

I'm putting this one on my list of bands to check out. Listening to it now on Spotify and it sounds a lot like Opeth to me, which is good. It says 'explicit' next to every song. :o
We'll see.

I'll return to Soen later and at this time of day I think I'll switch to:
Vangelis - "Rosetta"

Also played:
Marillion - "F.E.A.R."
It's OK. Actually, to be fair, it's more than OK. It's pretty good. But Steve Hogarth really needs to start singing again. Instead, he's doing something between talking and singing and I don't like it. It started on "Happiness Is The Road" and continued on "Sounds That Can't Be Made" and now "F.E.A.R.". And man, he's really nagging us about world problems. ;D Haven't really delved into the lyrics much yet, but because he's talking instead of singing, the lyrics are very much on the forefront. I prefer my music to be music...

Now listening to:
The Pineapple Thief - "Your Wilderness"
Hmm... reminds me of Porcupine Tree. I wonder why. ;D Seriously though, I'm pleasantly surprised and probably should have invested more in their back catalog.

Great drummer indeed ;). This one and the previous one 'Magnolia' are easier, the backcatalogue needs more listenings and are more difficult to get into.

np: The Dear Hunter - Act V ~ Hymns With The Devil In Confessional

Some really great songs. And a few that I dislike, especially a song that reminds me of the 'Star Sisters' :).

Bruce Soord - Bruce Soord

Solo album from The Pineapple Thief frontman. You can call the music 'TPT light' :).

But TPT is already 'light'. ;)

Talking of light:

NP:
Tim Bowness - "Lost In The Ghost Light" (on Spotify)
Just released, I'm five songs in and... this is really good!

I have two No-Man albums ("Together We're Stranger" and "Schoolyard Ghosts") and I like both very much, but it's very ambient, sometimes even minimalistic music. Nothing like that here. Of course this is very easy and light music, but it's very beautiful and more 'lively' than those No-Man albums.

So in that respect, No-Man seems to be Tim Bowness-light.

Makes me want to try his other solo albums.

I'm listening to Barock Project - "Skyline"
It's really good. I'll comment further on it when I'm at a computer. I am in hospital at the moment. (Nothing too serious, don't you worry.)
