Old Town Road to EGOT


New song is good! On first listen it's not my favorite PT song, but it certainly sounds like PT and I'm glad they're back.

I'm hoping there are good seats left for London when general sale goes live on Friday, been wanting to see Porcupine Tree again for over a decade!

I recently discovered that John Carpenter's son, Cody Carpenter, has a prog-rock solo-project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVeb8tcYV10 Not sure if he's come up in the thread, but it's pretty solid.

So few people have listened to the track on YouTube that it looks like he's personally thanked most people for saying nice things.

I'll have to check that out. I've seen him live twice with his father and own all the Lost Themes albums and Anthology, but prog is not electronic.

It was totally not expected. I just grabbed Lost Themes III recently and was looking up interviews for the project and was surprised to find out he was doing his own solo stuff. But like I say, prog is not what I expected. I was getting Rick Wakeman Yes vibes off some of it.

New Coheed track, slightly poppier verse and chorus with a great prog breakdown in the middle.

I'm really looking forward to the new album. I think they're really one of the few prog bands that hasn't ever actually disappointed me.

Huh. I used to really like Coheed, they knew how to craft and chain licks like nobody's business. Then at some point they just started sounding like noise to me. Maybe I'll give them another go when the new one comes out, or maybe I'll just dust off some of the old stuff. Actually that reminds me I've gotta check out the latest Thank You Scientist album -- they haven't quite clicked with me but they're so close to hitting that sweet spot.

Though right now I've gotta say, I have yet to warm up to any of the rest of their discography that I've heard but Jack o' The Clock's Repetitions of the Old City - I slaps from end to end. Just the right mix of weird and pleasant and dissonant and acoustic and lyrics that I should really study on paper.

yeah ok ok yeah
May 2, 2016



I never really got into Coheed as a teen. Mind you, I only really got into prog rock within the last couple of years. Tastes change, yadda, yadda. I dig that track! What's a good place to start with Coheed and Cambria if I want to get into them? I know zilch about them other than a bunch of people I used to know were super into them.

I'd start with Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness as it's probably the most solid album overall and also contains their biggest hit, then try one album in either direction (In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 for older or Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow for newer) and, if you like either of 'em, continue in that chronological direction.

Silent Earth 3 definitely has the most fun songs to actually play on guitar.

Dec 13, 2011



Yeah, the span of Silent Earth 3 through NWFT is probably my favourite and the easiest to get into. Good Apollo Vol 1 is probably some of the darkest music the band has done so if you like that more angry rock sound as well then it's a good starting point.

Maybe more than Chicago's, too. It's weird to listen to the early Chicago albums where they were playing more experimental (and funky) stuff.

Finding out that Chicago used to do sidelong jazz/modern classical suites about nuclear war and poo poo is still one of the most shocking music discoveries I’ve ever made

I often wonder where their career would’ve gone if Terry Kath hadn’t earned himself a Darwin Award.

It might not have been so different. If they wanted to be big they would have still written pop songs and let peter cetera do his thing.

Supposedly he was thinking of leaving the band before he died, although of course who knows where they would’ve gone

Ahh, I definitely remember this album cover from when I worked at a record store. Yeah, this is the one my friend recommended to me back in the day and I bounced off of. Gonna start with this and give it another shot. Thanks!

Showing Vettel the way since 1979



Finally got to see Marillion live in Hull. All I can say is that if this is the only time I see them, I can go happy. I got Neverland, which always gets me, thanks to that soaring guitar.

Still not sure what I make of the new song, but it had a lot of energy. I wasn't expecting The Party or The Release, but they worked well enough on the night

They’re one of those bands I’m so happy I was able to see (as an American).

This found its way onto my YT recs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o99pIei5q68

I don't normally like reaction videos, but this guy's are different to most in that he doesn't stop the music every minute to talk at length about what he just heard. Instead he analyses the music as it plays, and attempts to accompany or replicate the chord structure on piano - generally with some success. It's a pretty pro click.

No.

Big Big Train can get a little too twee for my tastes, but when they hit, they hit.

David was an uncanny Gabriel doppelganger. RIP.

Some kind of home accident I gather. Very sad.
