Yessongs

Of the studio albums it would be a tossup between GFTO or CTTE.

RIP Rick

Pink Floyd were the band that led me into investigaing the whole progressive rock movement way back in 1980. Hi influence in the formative years and first couple of PF albums cannot be underesyimated.

Re: 21st Century Schizoid Man is -

Hugely overrated IMO. Don't get me wrong.. ItCotCK is one of the great debut albums of the last fifty years, but to my mind it's all about the mellotron. EPITAPH IS THE GOODS. One of the defining tracks of progressive music. The title track is almost on a par although to me it doesn't quite have the...

Re: This and That IV

Yes! I prefer Bruford's albums with Yes to the ones he's made with KC. My favourite KC albums are the first two.

Red (Bruford and KC) or CTTE (Bruford and Yes)?

Re: Your favorite underrated gem of an album?

Franseco Di Giacomo (banco's lead vocalist) is one of my absolute favourite vocalists. His work on tracks like Metamorfosi, Il giardino del Mago (my favourite) and Io Sono Nato Libero is simply gorgeous. I need to get some more PFM, only have Per un Amico. It's a very good album IMO.

Same here on both counts.
Under the Sun and Supernaut are also overlooked tracks in Sabbath's history.

It's been a long time (18 months or so) since I last posted here. Thought it was about time I rejoined the fold. Late last year I spent most of my time online on the Dream Theater Forum and when the band pulled the plug on that one I spent quite some time on the Progarchives forums. This year though...

I've always enjoyed Scorpions. Klaus Meine is one of the great hard rock / metal vocalists IMO. As for MS, his work with UFO is essential listening.

It's always managed to hold my attention more than Phaedra. Agree with the comments re Rubycon, easily in my top 5 TD albums. Alpha Centauri is the ...

I never understood that fuss, either, until a couple of weeks ago. SR just decided to grab hold. To me, it ranks right up there with CTTE, but surpasses TAAB, and surpasses Pictures and ITCOTCK by a wide margin, both musically and lyrically.
