Zonder/Wehrkamp - If It's Real (On Spotify)

Collaboration between Mark Zonder (Fates Warning) and Gary Wehrkamp (Shadow Gallery). It's easy listening music, pop/rock, with beautiful guitar solos and catchy melodies. Do prefer a new Shadow Gallery album though ::) :).

Listened to
Neal Morse Band - "The Great Adventure"
A.C.T - "Rebirth"
Vangelis - "Nocturne"
Huis - "Abandoned"

I also listened a bit to Zonder/Wehrkamp but it didn't really do anything for me at that time. Perhaps another time.

np: Frost* - Falling Satellites 8)

Great idea! I think that's a pretty good album. Might be their most balanced album. And possibly the best as well. I see it as a perfect mix of "Milliontown" and "Experiments In Mass Appeal".
"Milliontown" was a revelation when it came out and I was absolutely in love with everything on that album. Black Light Machine is still a fantastic song. The instrumental Hyperventilate is very charming as well. The title song is not as good as I remember it if I'm being honest. There's still much to be liked there, but it goes on for too long I'm afraid. So "Milliontown" feels a little bit uneven now, thirteen years later.
"Experiments In Mass Appeal" felt, like the title says, as an experiment. I remember being a little bit disappointed. Dear Dead Days and Falling Down are pretty good though. The keyboard solo in Falling Down still gives me goosebumps, I like that sooooo much. And both Pocket Sun and Toys are nice too. (Remember that fan made video?) But all in all the album was a bit too noisy with Declan Burke screaming and not fitting in the picture (if you'd ask me) and I really missed the keyboards and synths of "Milliontown".
"Falling Satellites" has exactly that. The synths are back and it all feels very cinematic. The songs are short and precise. But still very proggy in a Jem and John kind of way.
Let's see how I feel about "Falling Satellites" in another thirteen years.

How do you rank those albums Teunis?

Now listening to:
Dream Theater - "Distance Over Time"
Not bad at all.

About Frost*:
How do you rank those albums Teunis?
Haven't played the first two albums for a long time. Will play them soon to decide. Now I would have said:
1. Milliontown
2. Falling Satellites
3. Experiments In Mass Appeal
Like you said, 'Milliontown' was a revelation, it totally blew me away. That's why I put it on no. 1. To be continued ...  ;)

I have been listening a lot to Big Big Train's latest album "Grand Tour" the past weeks.
I think it's a wonderful album once again. Time for them to upgrade to Big Big Big Train.

And Fervent Mind's "Tranquilize" is also one of my most played albums on Spotify these days. I think their music is pretty unique.

Also today listened to:
Darkwater - "Human"
Pretty nice Progressive Metal album. I think Kamelot fans would like this. But I'll have to check with my brother to see if I'm right.

Jordsj√ł - "Nattfiolen"
Pretty nice 70's inspired scandinavic prog.

Vangelis - "Nocturne"
My turn to album when I'm in the mood for some ambient piano.
