» Tony Banks: The Wicked Lady
Thirty odd years before on some grass covered wasteland*… No, wait! Thirty years after its initial release, the “lost” Tony Banks album is finally available on CD. This film score is his first foray into writing for an orchestra, something which he would fully realize in 2002 with Seven. The first half of the album is the orchestrated score while Tony’s original demos make up the second half.
*This is the first line of “The Lie” from A Curious Feeling, Tony’s solo debut.
» Grace Kelly: Every Road I Walked
From 2006, the jazz prodigy’s third album. It was around this time that she was invited by Keith Lockhart to play one of her new pieces at a Boston Pops concert. She did the favor one better by - at the age of fourteen - arranging the piece for the entire orchestra so it could be played with the Pops.
» Kylie Minogue: Boombox
A good collection of remixes from 2000 through 2008.
» Renaissance: Grandine il Vento
14 Sep 2012, 22:13 by tlukes123The Rush album ratings game Part 1: The early years:
Here is my ranking, I thought it would make more sense to do it by period rather than trying to lump all of the albums in together. This is the early period including everything up until All The World’s A Stage. I’m not doing a point system, I’m not a single song guy and I generally like to listen to albums as a whole so I rate the whole and not by piece. Also, I included the live album because I think it’s an important part of the story. Music was meant to be experienced and played loud by real musicians outside of the studio.
Favorite Rush Albums Part 1
1. 2112 – Everything up to this point led to this album and a darn fine one it is. I will say though, that I prefer the live version of Passage to Bangkok on Exit Stage Left to the one on here.
2. Fly by Night – The first album with Neil, full of great songs and one of my faves Anthem.
3. All The World's A Stage – Live Rush, all the awesome songs from their early albums, make this a classic. …

20 Nov 2011, 07:30 by Cosmic_TerminalHello fellow listeners =)
This here is a CD collection I've been working on and off for the last 7+ years.
Future plan is to grab some of my favourite albums on vinyl to put up on the wall.
I think this shows an interesting progression of how my musical tastes have evolved since I started (with Billy Talent and stuff like AFI, going into stuff as late as Blotted Science or Mahavishnu Orchestra) I'm fairly content with it, but there's still loads to be purchased.
Periodically, I'll update the collection~
Total albums so far: 229
Technically, I have a few comedy albums and some japanese promos, but I'm not including those. Anyways, let's get on with the list!

10 Apr 2011, 04:00 by TheSeeker99I'll just dive right into this one. Fly by Night was one of two albums released in the year 1975. This is the first album with Neil Peart on the drums (also writing most of the lyrics, which is true for every album from this point forward). This one is a marked improvement over their first effort. I'd still call it one of their best. It's a very solid album from the first to the last. I can safely say that every song enters at least the 'like' category for me with the majority going beyond that. My personal favourite on this album is Beneath, Between & Behind. I don't really have any specific reason, maybe because it makes me think of the Legend of Zelda for whatever weird reason. Of course, one of their most famous songs is on here, the titular track Fly by Night. That song is awesome and always will be one of their greatest hits. The opening track Anthem is a killer way to kick off this awesome album. There's one song I feel is often forgotten on this album and it's strange really because I feel it's one of the album's best. …
