Teunis, you deserve a medal for keeping this thread alive! ;D

Today Leprous' album "Malina" fell through the mailbox. Haven't heard a single note yet, but based on their previous two albums I definitely wanted to have this one. I really like the cover artwork. Really makes me think of Toto's Dune soundtrack. Does that make sense, Teunis?

I also received Steven Wilson's latest output "To The Bone". This guy is really aiming for the big audience, and it seems he succeeds! I'm not really hot on his new album (but there's still enough to enjoy!) but he absolutely deserves the attention! He can make ProgRock 'sexy' again. ;D

Still need to listen to my newly bought Mastodon ("Emperor Of Sand") too.

So what exactly am I listening to? Well, I am busy listening either to newer or neglected albums (2015-2017) or listening to older albums and selecting the best songs. Because, everytime I listen to an old album I think "I COULD be listening to a new album, or discovering new music" and when I listen to new music I think "I rather listen to my trusted good old albums". There's so much music and so little time!!
So now I'm doing a bit of both and making playlists. Starting with the letter A, I already have selected the best songs of A.C.T, Anathema and Arena. This way I will not spend too much time on an album that I already know.

Other than that, I listened a lot to OSI, The Tangent's latest album, Riverside's latest two albums, Mike Oldfield, Leprous, The Dear Hunter and Karmakanic.

Didn't notice that, but in a way ... yes you're right.

np: Leprous - Malina

Second play. Will enter my top-3 in the end of the year for sure. Long ago that a release touched me like that. Goosebumps from the beginning 8). And they say it's a grower :).

Steven Wilson - "To The Bone"

Hmm... I think I really like this album. Don't like everything though. For example the song (and single) Permanating I cannot enjoy. And that's not because it is so poppy (which it is). As you might know, I do like the poppy side of prog occasionally. The thing that puts me off sooooo much, is the "Mamma Mia" part. I actually think the rest of the song is ok. Hearing that part -- that resembles ABBA's song too much -- totally takes me out of the experience.
The song Refuge is really awesome with the harmonica/guitar/synth solo. Goosebump moment.

Leprous' "Malina" is also really good. And then there's new releases of Threshold and Kaipa on the way as well.

Malina is *horns*, favourite 2017 release for me so far. I think I'm going to ignore the new Threshold album. Don't like what they've done with Damian >:(.

CH got a 'tip' in the prog magazine 'iO-pages. That album 'In Contact' is not on Spotify (yet), so I tried the previous one. Not so impressed, but will listen to it again or I'll wait for the new one.
SC was recommended to listen to if you're a Shadow Gallery fan. Heard 4 songs, but don't know (yet) why ;). Let's see or better: hear :).

Listening to Anymore from Lunatic Soul's next album "Fractured". The song has just released today.
The title song from said album was released a few weeks ago.
It's all very electronic, but I like it.

Also listened to Porcunine Tree's "In Absentia" and "The Incident" earlier today.

I think I'm going to ignore the new Threshold album. Don't like what they've done with Damian >:(.

Yes, I can understand that. It doesn't sound pretty what they did. But Threshold has always been Karl Groom, Jon Jeary and (later on) Richard West. To be honest, I loved Threshold with Mac on vocals. Didn't like the earlier albums with Damian. "Dead Reckoning" is probably still my favourite Threshold album. I have to say, that the last two albums with Damian were pretty solid and I really like them, especially "For The Journey". "Psychedelicatessen" I haven't really heard, but the songs from the new album sound really good and Glynn sounds a bit like Mac.

Ooohhh now I'm going to listen to "Dead Reckoning" again! ;D

Threshold - "Legends Of The Shires" (on Spotify)

Wow!

Yesterday I also listened to this album while at work. But now I'm listening at home and REALLY listening. I'm very impressed! I think that after a few more listens this might be at least as good as "Dead Reckoning" (my favourite of theirs). And it's certainly a contender for best album of 2017.
