Okay aside the comfort of a good beer i tend to buy something exclusive every now and then.

This is the time for that:

Equilibrio.

Read my tiny review on the NP topic and you'll now why.

Edit: let's modify this bit:

Here we go:

Quote from: what i wrote in the NP topic
NP> Equilibrio - A Rock Opera

Tonight i went to the concert in Utrecht and my gosh let me tell you: if you like Symphonic metal with classical moments ehm let me refrase that: Lots of classical moments that this is an album you should really buy or at least check it out.

Stunning! And that for a Dutch band called Xystus combined with a Dutch Orchestra. Yep, a real orchestra.

It reminds me of Caamora in many ways though it's far more 'metal' than Caamora.

Highly recommended!!!  *horns* *horns* *horns*

I've updated my list a bit.
Made it more extensive. ;)

In the risk of copycatting Nick with his rather distinguished and extensive list especially with the addition of favorite guitarist, bassplayer etc etc, I've had to come up with a different title and obviously, a different approach.  :P ;D

I'm still working on that.  ;)

I'm surprised to see that you have so many albums by Alan Parsons Project  :)

I listened a lot to them thirty years ago.

Mad, I'm curious about which Zero Hour albums you have  :D

Seriously, I am  ;)

As I wrote earlier, I experienced them live at Headway 2007, together with Redemption, To-Mera, and Loch Vostok.

The Zero Hour concert was superb  *horns*

It got me spinning their albums for quite a while. I have to get back to them soon again .....

Are you and I the only Zero Hour fans here ? (not for you to answer, Mad)  ;D

Nice work with Dream Theater, Mad  8)

Has your rest lasted too long, maybe kinda up to now ?  ;D

I'm still waitin for yer Wolverine catalog  :D

And the Australian Pink Floyd Show - is that where they play Gilmour's Comfortably Numb solo on the didgeridoo ? - for the benefit of Mr. Cap ?  :P

Canadian Tea Party, catalog: The Interzone Mantras (my fave btw), Transmission, etc

US Tea Party movement, catalog: mischief  ;D

And burried with no time.  :o

And it is more work than I anticipated at the beginning.  :-\

Hey Maddox, I checked out your listening profile and found this:

Frank Klepacki [US]

How did that end up there?

I did another check in your listening profile (I check LP's every once in a while in search of new ideas and discoveries) and saw this:

Bjørn Lynne [Norway]
  • Albums: The Void (1997)/Wolves of the Gods (1999)/The Gods Awaken (2001)/Colony (2002)

Never heard you about him. What do you think of it? (And also the fellow I mentioned in my previous post. ;))

I have "The Gods Awaken" and "Return To Witchwood" which I find very nice. I don't play them often, but there are some great musical ideas. Especially "Return To Witchwood" is quite relaxing.

Mad, I get the impression that you like Dream Theater, donno why  ;)

I see that you too like Adagio, pantheon with me. Their latest studio album Archangels in Black is magnificent  *horns*

I just ordered the entire Dominici O3 Trilogy (3 albums). I deemed them pantheon on the basis of what I heard on YouTube. Lookin forward to hearing the albums from beginning to end, as that always gives a deeper experience. I'm fascinated by the the storyline   8)

They're okay.
A bit overrated.  :P

I've got that album as well, but haven't updated my list, which is obvious for everyone to see.  :-[
Time is not always at my side. ...
I'm beginning to think that this was somewhat a pretentious endeavor.  :-[ :-[

Nicky.

The first part of O3 is an acoustic, laid-back album.
It's not bad, a nice listen from time to time but don't expect something like DT. ;)

Parts 2 & 3 are fabulous melodic progmetal with thinking-man lyrics ala DT & CM  *horns*

Almost nothing. ;)

I have a great deal by them though the fun stopped a bit during the Black Album period and fell downhill after the horrific Load/Reload era.
I'm one of the few that liked the St. Anger album and was filled with joy (partly because of reminiscing the 'ol days) with the Death Magnetic album.
The thing however that always holds me back when it comes to Metallica, is James Hetfield.
I don't like his heehaw-yiddleydidley-buckaroo singing.
To be more precise: I hate it.  :-\

But...

Last year I embarked on a great journey into fulfilling the cd's-I-own-profile and the maintenance after I finally finished it but what was meant to be a glimpse into my cd-collection, became a task that turned out to be almost like a hellish torment.

No time, no time and, obviously, no time.

Silly excuse, I know since I usually make time for music but unfortunately it is the truth.

So, I reached a point where I will contemplate if I shall discover the answer to the question; Will there come a day where I continue with the work or just delete the list I've already made and just fill in the bands I like? Without the albums I have from them?

So for the time being: this thread is, yet and still under construction. ;)

My excuses if you are disappointed with that.
