thanks for the warm welcome, happy to see you here too. That sounds way cool what you are doing with you're drawings. It seems to be pretty quiet in these hallowed halls at the moment.

I managed to find an incredible bootleg dvd of the R30 tour at radio city music hall, from a free trading community. That is the best live Rush concert video I have ever seen. I have all their official releases as well. I would even say this show is better than the Rush in Rio dvd, and tht RIR is gr...

If they ever did decide to do that, I would go see it for sure. Their music
would give an orchestra one heck of a workout! I guess you would call it
'Symphonic Dream Theater".

It might be cool. but I think Dream Theater has so much going on in their
music, they don't need an orchestra. They almost sound like a whole
orchestra by themselves. Awesome Band!!

I personally feel that Yes would not be the same without Jon Anderson, His influence has made Yes the kind of band that gives that mystical, colorful feel to the music. Not to mention his sense of melody and unique vocals is a big part of Yes' sound. I really hope Jon is in the next recording effort...

A dvd would be great, I will but it for sure! "Make it Easy" is a great song,
I stole the intro from that song to use for the opening tune at all the gigs
I did with my band. Simple to play, but sounds great!!

Well, but for someone who does not care for pure metal, like massos (and me), it is hardly the place to start with DT. This may sound wierd, if the music is good with real talent, I don't classify it as pure metal, hard rock etc, etc. I just look at it as well written music, "if it's good, it's goo...

With the current line-up, I really hope they don't brush off making a new studio album. Magnification is a great release, but I don't think it is the right album to cap off their catalogue.

[quote="yesireebob"] Track 1 is just ok, kind of Metallica-ish. Tracks 2 and 4, especially 4, are tracks that I just skip over. Too Pantera.
