13 Sep 2006, 03:35 by theschlossyesterday I got a couple of albums in the mail.
* Redemption - The Fullness of Time, which I think (after a couple of spins) is quite an impressive album.
Honestly, at this point, I wouldn't be too broken up if Fates Warning broke up, leaving Ray Alder to work with Redemption and Jim Matheos to work with OSI. FWX wasn't that great (esp. compared to Disconnected and what I've heard of APSOG), and considering the work that those two side projects are putting out (also, I seem to recall Joey Vera and Mark Zonder both leaving FW?) it seems to me that FW has just about run its course.
* Stride - Imagine, which I think is less impressive than TFoT but still has a few notable bright spots (especially their instrumental prowess). Fans of Dream Theater should take note of this other American prog-metal outfit, they're worth a listen.
2 Oct 2005, 01:29 by jhallumI've been busy buying and trading for all sorts of good stuff:
Anthrax -- Sound of White Noise (I used to have this long ago, but traded it. Listening to this makes me wonder why I did that?)
Sonata Arctica -- Reckoning Night(Still more happy melodic metal!)
Dreamscape -- Very (pretty good prog metal so far)
Magellan -- Symphony for a Misanthrope(a return to Test of Wills form for Magellan, I like this prog rock disk)
Symphorce -- Godspeed(A better CD than Brainstorms latest (and they share singers)
Mercenary -- 11 Dreams(A thrashy Prog Metal Tour De Force. A friend burned me a copy, this is the replacement)
Last Tribe -- The Uncrowned(some happy melodic metal when I'm down)
Arabesque -- The Union ($5!)(A great prog rock disk with a really cool chick singer, unique voice)
Starbreaker -- s/t (more melodic metal from Magnus Karlsson!)
Spheric Universe Experience -- Mental Torments(technical prog metal. I like what I've heard so far)
