Just dropped through the door IQ - A show of Resistance
I have seen it on YouTube during the lockdown. Great show and it sounded great as well 8). Unfortunately the images were poor, that's why they decided not to release it as a DVD. Such a shame. I doubt if I am going to buy this cd. I'm an IQ fan, but hardly play live cd's :).

I played Great Escape the other day. The sound indeed is excellent on the IQ CD. I play alot of live CD's is there a particular reason that you don't?

BTW I also played Course of Fate today as I have a free 3 month Deezer subscription so thought I would check out what was available so I will be relying on you all toi fire out more recommendations.

Don't know. I prefer studio albums, I don't get the 'live' feeling with a live cd and find the stereo sound on studio albums more beautiful. But I do like live DVD's, especially those with 5.1 sound. Then it's just like if you're in the audience 8).

I'm with Teunis here. I also prefer to listen to studio versions. I do however like to watch live dvds (or blurays nowadays), same as Teunis actually. When, on a rare occasion, I listen to a live cd, I always get the feeling I'd rather listen to the studio songs. For me, the benefit of a live album lies in the compilation of good songs. But nowadays, with Spotify and such, I make playlists. So yeah...

I listened to Lonely Robot's first two albums. Talking about playlists: I think a compilation album of the first three albums would make a nice little disc. Bring on the fourth album! ;D

Also listened A LOT to Kansas first five albums and was blown away! I never expected it to be this good! New (old) favourite band. Time to listen & buy their discography. 8)

I own their previous album 'The Prelude Implicit' which is great. Will certainly listen to the new album. From the older work I know 'Dust In The Wind' of course, but not the albums.

After today's announcement I just had to listen to a band with Damian Wilson on vocals (to hear what Arena might sound like ;)):
Threshold - For The Journey

Current track is my favourite from this album: The Box

Lonely Robot - Feeling Good
Blind Ego - Preaching To The Choir
Kingcrow - The Persistence

Lonely Robot's new album is great. It has the potention to become my favourite LR album 😎. Really love Blind Ego's latest album. It is more AOR than prog, but I enjoy playing it and that's what matters. And I'm impressed by one of my latest discoveries Kingcrow 🤘. My favourite list of 2018 would have been different if I had discovered them earlier :).

Lonely Robot - Feeling Good

Lonely Robot's new album is great. It has the potention to become my favourite LR album %uD83D%uDE0E.

pp: Lonely Robot - Feeling Good

Also played the new Lonely Robot album today. I think it's pretty good! It was just the second spin, but I think I already like it more than the first two albums, which is a huge plus! The third Lonely Robot album really grew on me and I think this one will too.

np: Kansas - The Absence Of Presence

Have to hear it more often, stylewise it's like the previous album 'The Prelude Implicit'. Not bad at all. To be continued :).

Nice to read this. I need to listen to it properly still.

Also:

From the older work I know 'Dust In The Wind' of course, but not the albums.

Dear Teunis, do yourself a favour and listen to the first six albums. I think Kansas sounds a bit like Toto at times.
If you don't have time for six albums, check out "Masque" (1975), "Leftoverture" (1976), "Monolith" (1978) for a good representative.
If you don't have time for three albums, check out "Leftoverture", their best album I guess.
If you don't have time for one album, check out the song People Of The South Wind from "Monolith". This is where Kansas reminds me of Toto a lot.
(I guess the only other place where you hear those two listed in one sentence together is in the Wizard Of Oz.)



Now listening to:
Jargon - "The Fading Thought"
I really like this! I listened to this a lot on Bandcamp for almost two months now. But it wasn't on Spotify, until now! So now I can listen to it even a lot more.
The first track, The Film, is very aptly titled. This album is full of piano and violin and cello. Very cinematic music indeed, but there's also enought prog to be found.
Highly recommended!

Pinnacle Point - "Symphony Of Mind"
Wow, this album is right on time as I just discovered Kansas.

This is truly Kansas reincarnated. Really cool album. I also read somewhere that it sounds like Shadow Gallery, which (by my limited knowledge (only really know their first album)) I can confirm.
Also for Neal Morse/Spock's Beard fans because they should investigate everything Kansas/Kansas-like.

In other words: Teunis, check it out!

Just listened to this one. Wasn't impressed at first listening, will play it again.

I did yesterday but needs more listenings I guess, no click (yet) :).

The latter one was recommended on Facebook by someone who saw that I was playing Airbag's 'Identity'. It would contain many 'Airbag/Bjørn Riis alike guitar playing'. I hear the guitar solos, but the music lacks the melodies and I find the vocals boring ... Will give it a second chance, but I'm not impressed (so far) :).
