    I had to go to Damian's website and redownload everything since my computer crashed. There is an extra track on Commune now called Spin. Oh My GOD! Damian Really hit home with this one, at first it sounds meh but the emotion in the lyrics is dangerous!

    I love Damian's music. He is incredibly awesome. It reminds me of 70's pop rock, which I love so much. So much good music here. For free. He is an amazing person.

    I am more than proud to call myself a Damian Wilson fangirl. I saw him first with Ayreon on Into the Electric Castle, fell in love, and then did my research. Found the solo stuff for free and downloaded it all. And truthfully, I like it more than his metal material! This is reminicent of the Singer-Songwriter/Alternative that I loved so much as a child, listening to the college radio when everybody else in my age group was listening to Boy Bands. If you have not listened to Damian's solo stuff yet but know his work as a vocalist, you are in for a surprise. It has a mellow, folk-y sound to it that is wonderful for winding down after a night of clubbing. Beautiful and mellow!

    Great voice indeed! His own albums are unexpectedly cute compared to his tough appearance at Threshold concerts :)

    I really got into him after seeing him live with Star One. He and Russell just blew me away. Then he impressed me again, opening for Stream of Passion just with his acoustic. All his solo stuff is singer-songwriter style. IMO his best albums are Commune and Disciple. Live in Rehearsal is very enjoyable too. Never really got into Cosmas, although it has some really good songs, like Homegrown.

    I gave Homegrown a go last week and I was surprised. Not pleasantly, not negatively, but just surprised. Damian Wilson's unbelievable voice makes him above a basic 'the man, the guitar, the voice' type of a singer-songwriter, but I couldn't find anything musically special from the song itself. Plus, it wasn't what I expected (power metal :P). I don't know about his other songs yet, but I downloaded them all and I'm going to listen to the album Cosmas one of these days. If only he only thought of people listening to music via computer though... he should've tagged the songs better. -.- Nevertheless, he's an awesome singer, he doesn't necessarily have to be a good computer user. :) Oh, and I heard him the first time either in Aina or in Star One. He's just great on both albums, and on Ayreon, of course!
