No, haven't read the book and also still have to buy the DVD. Shame on me :).

Not at all. The dvd is only out for less than a month. I just happen to have it earlier because of the Neal Morse gig in Utrecht where I could buy it.
It IS a very nice dvd though.

Still, I'm looking forward to the Morsefest dvd, where they also played "Similitude..." but also "Testimony Two" including the "Seeds Of Gold" song, which is one of my favourites.

Neal Morse - "The Similitude Of A Dream"
I've seen the recent dvd and I'm totally into this album again. It's already two years ago!!

By the way, Teunis, have you read the book that it is based on, by any chance?

That track is so beautiful. Many goosebump moments there.

Oh yes indeed. I didn't know Mystery was going to release a new album this year. I still have to listen to their "Delusion Rain".
How would you compare "Delusion Rain" to "The World Is A Game"?
The new album 'Lies And Butterflies' will be release on the Night Of The Prog Festival this weekend, but worldwide on 1st August. Frankly speaking there's not so much difference in the Mystery albums, at least from 'Beneath The Veil Of Winter's Face', which is my favourite. They're all keyboard-oriented, but also great guitar solos and vocals. Very melodious, you can't go wrong ;). They're all on Spotify. If you have the time ... But that's the great problem nowadays ;).

Quote from: PH
And I still want to listen to "Magnolia" and "The Wilderness" by Pineapple Thief. It's hard to get into. But Gavin Harrison makes me feel the need for it.
'Magnolia' got me into TPT, but 'Your Wilderness' is slightly better I'd say. The new track I heard from the upcoming album is sounding promising!

Yesterday I listened to Peter Gabriel's "Up" and thought it was really good. This is his last real studio album right? Not counting "Scratch My Back" and "New Blood" which are a covers album and some sort of best of. I've never really looked into his discography properly, but "Up" makes me feel excited enough to dive in.

Mike Oldfield - "Incantations"
Bit of an odd one this. Are there even any devoted Oldfield fans here?

I don't know if you like it but if you don't mind oriental (read:mid-eastern) influences mixed with metal, you might want to try the new Orphaned Land album Unsung Poets and Dead Messiahs.
To me it's one of the highlights of this year.  8)
There are some growls on the album but mostly it's clean vocals.


Thanks for the recommendation. I've always wanted to check this band out. So let's see where this goes.
