Oh, I had a few alright.
One that springs to mind is Apple Pie
, a prog band from Russia.
I introduced this band to the Room but when I listened to the album a couple of times I noticed that the singer does better when he sings in Russian, because his English is really awful and the lyrics are terribly written.
The music is good however, very Spockish', but not good enough to be reminded.
Another one that is the first album of Subsignal
, Beautiful and Monstrous
I enjoyed listening to Arno when he was the singer of the German band Sieges Even
The first album I heard from that band was The Art of Navigating by the Stars
, which is a very good album, probably the best of that year, 2005.
This album however is not what I expected to be. Their later albums are better, though they don't match the quality of Sieges Even
, which is more metal, and more Rush-like. U2
is a band, not prog I know, a band which I am a fan of since I heard the song New Year's Day
It is undenieable true that when you're in the 'business' for so long, you release one or two albums that people will consider as your weakest or one of your weakest.
After the stunning album The Joshua Tree
, a trip in history
, they did alright but they never were able to come to TJT, probably the pinnacle of their career. All That You Can't Leave Behind
I consider as one of their weakest albums, How To Make an Atomic Bomb
has its moments, it's enjoyable but not high in U2-standards. Pop
is also a proof of a derailed U2-train.
That's it for now.
