At the moment I'm listening to No-Man's "Love You To Bits" which is a bit disappointing, I think. There's a bit too much disco on it which I'm not really a big fan of. But the worst part is that it's so repetitive. And the album is short, but it feels like an eternity.

I've been listening quite a bit to the following lately:
Opeth - "In Cauda Venenum"
I think this is their best album for a long time. Very melodic and there is even some metal on it. (If you have a broad definition of metal.)

Flying Colors - "Third Degree"
Also possibly their best. Some really good songs on this one!

Leprous - "Pitfalls"
I was initially not really convinced, but after two listens I think this is again a brilliant album by a band that has quickly become one of my absolute favourites.

I know the feeling, was very disappointed after first listening. With 'Malina' it was 'love at first hearing'. But now I like it even more than the previous album. Just wow, will be in my top-2 2019 releases *horns*.

Also two contenders for my top-10 8).

Moon Halo - Chroma

New band with e.g. Iain Jennings (Mostly Autumn), Marc Atkinson (Riversea), David Clements (Riversea). You can hear a Riversea influence indeed, nice album.

Glad to see the site up and running again.

Moon Halo - Chroma

New band with e.g. Iain Jennings (Mostly Autumn), Marc Atkinson (Riversea), David Clements (Riversea). You can hear a Riversea influence indeed, nice album.

Yes, I've also listened to this album a few times already since monday. Not bad at all. Very melodic. It's on my 'relisten list'.

Now listening to Karfagen's new album "Birds Of Passage" which is really nice as well. For fans of The Flower Kings i'd say, a bit of Yes and Genesis in there too (but that's also Flower Kings).
The album is actually two big epics (Birds Of Passage, Part 1 and Part 2) of 20+ minute each. There's also two 'bonus tracks', which are not bad either.

Also looking forward to the new Sons Of Apollo album. I listened to the three songs that were released already, and they are pretty cool. In fact, it reminded me that I haven't really listened good enough to their previous album, which I will do.

And also the two songs that were released by Magnum are nice as well. I really like that sound. The new album should be good.

Another song that keeps coming up in my playlist is Jonah: a very cool and quirky song by Major Parkinson (who else?). Really, if you haven't heard about these guys, you should check out this song. It's weird, but catchy too!
(Here it is!)

Moon Halo - "Chroma"
This is probably my big surprise of the year so far.
The first half of the album is pretty solid. Well, actually, the rest is not that bad either. There are many moments that remind me of other bands. For example the second song (Seize The Day) reminds me a lot of Ray Wilson in the chorus. And Parachute makes me think of Neal Morse.
Both examples have to do with the vocals. The way he sings the lines, not really his vocal colour.
Yes, I really like this.
