1. Aerosmith--"Nine Lives"
2. YES--"Relayer"
3. Jack Bruce--"Shadows In The Air"
4. Eric Clapton--"Behind The Sun"
5. The Rolling Stones--"Let It Bleed"
6. YES--"Yesshows"
7. Poco--"The Forgotten Trail"
8. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young--"Four-Way Street"

As you can see, the music will be on for the majority of the day. This is a good thing yes?</font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Nice choices gentlemen: Achtung Baby, 2112, and Nine Lives. N2, how is that Aerosmith? I love em', but don't have much of em'.

I am listening to "Awaken"

<font color=red>"Nine Lives" is power-packed pretty handsomely but it definitely does not have the punch of "Pump" or the polish of "Toys In The Attic". "A Taste of India" will rock you right into next month but no other cut really has the dynamics this one does. However, if you're an Aerohead like me, it's a must.</font id=red> <img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

First...sorry, Lyth, about missing "Son of Playlist" thread and starting another...ouch...can you ever forgive me!?

I used to listen to Creed a lot, but they have gotten so....full of themselves! I know that has nothing to do with the quality of their music, but I've just got so much other good music to listen to.

I'm finally letting in some other stuff in my playlist again...I've been listening to Smiley Smile by the Beach Boys and a wierd French group that my sister listens to called Stereolab...anyone familiarly with them?

Tonite we dug out some old tapes we hadn't heard in a while...

Tangerine Dream; Optical Race

Andreas Vollenweider; Solo Para Ti & White Winds (an awesome harpist whom I have dreamed about seeing perform with YES!)

Ottmar Liebert; Luna Negra (a great guitarist I once saw live! He must have been inspired by Steve Howe)

Rosewood and Silver; local NM artists who play accoustic guitar and flute -- kinda medeival in sound!

Yes; KTA II

<font color=blue>Oh man, Seryn, I've been into Sterolab . . . well, for a long time, since their earliest EPs. With a title like Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, how could I resist? <img src=pix/icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle> Latiecia Sandler is a sexy vocal stylist, and all those old Moog synths are pretty cool too . . .

Yeskat, have you ever heard TG's soundtrack to the movie Thief? It's hard to find but tremendous. There's actually a lot of heavy sustain guitar, a la David Gilmour. Sonically, it flows like a mellower Wish You Were Here.

Entoo, I haven't listened to Aerosmith since high school. And I probably wouldn't own a disc. But if I had to, Rocks was clearly their apogee--all meat, no filler, and a perfect title. "Back In The Saddle," "Rats In The Cellar . . ." Okay, if I find this used, I'll probably buy it, just to relive the whole smoke and Iroc experience . . . </font id=blue><img src=pix/jestera.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, I was in the Depeche Mode fix today. Great stuff fellow Yesfans!

BTW, there's a lot of similarities in the lyrics...check out some of these titles just to clue you in. These are from Exciter...
"Dream On"
"Shine"
"Lovetheme"
"Freelove"
"I Am You"

Any other Depeche Mode fans out there?

<font color=red>Not mentioning "Rocks" was a significant error on my part. Right you are, Prof! That album is dynamite, pure and simple!</font id=red><img src=pix/icon_smokin.gif border=0 align=middle>

Sorry, Altair. Have heard a few things, nothing bad, just hasn't taken with me yet.

Something's wrong with me ... the last couple of days, I can't get my fill of Drama. But I'm only listening to Tempus Fugit and Machine Messiah and the happen one, I always, always screw up the title so I'm not gonna name it and you can't make me! <img src=pix/icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Last night I listened to Magnification on my laptop while I was at work and even sang along a little. Nobody complained. I thought for sure someone would boo me. <img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

It's funny, I've really started a trend with the laptop. I was the first one in the comm center to get one. (We don't work off PCs, not yet, anyway. That's coming soon.) Now a quarter of the staff (six of us) have a laptop.

Four of us are on midnights. So last night we were going around showing each other the cool features we have. And I thought it was so sweet that we were finally bonding over <i>something</i>.

Nobody else is playing Yes on theirs, though. And I bet I will remain unique in that respect.

Nope, prof, don't have that one. I only own three TDs -- would like to make my collection more complete, though!

I had a blast of U2s Rattle and Hum last night it certainly brought back some great memories. All along the Watchtower, Desire, and the Choir on I still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For - Heavenly!

Today I had to go and see a customer a couple of hundred miles away and took the opportunity to listen to A evening of YES music Plus . Having to take the bosses Mercedes being the only company car available and knowing he has a great CD player in it I made the most of it!! One track that stood out to me was Long Distance Runaround. There were great keyboards by Rick and Guitar work by Steve, but what I noticed the most was the drumming of Bill Bruford. There were subtle bits that I haven’t heard before. What was missing was the thumping of Chris’s bass lines although I believe it is Tony Levin playing bass he does not quite match Chris Squire. The overall sound I thought was, how can I put it? Crisp and Clean I think sums it up.
Cross threading on one of Simons about medleys they do Time and A Word, Teakbois, Owner Of A Lonely Heart as a medley and it works well. Maybe it is something they could do at some time in the future. A Rabin era medley and then some of the less played live tracks so long as Gates does not get the chop! I’m still wanting more after last November.

See, that's the thing - I <i>have</i> listened to it! And of course I pegged you as most likely to respond to that post, Ray ... whatta guy. Since I got here he's been trying to convince me of the greatness of Drama.

The train hasn't gotten to the station though. I still like Tormato better. But I guess Ray's getting to me, because I have seizures every time I try to take Drama out of the CD player. <img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

Tonight it's . . .

Tangerine Dream--Thief. Yeskat, you have to hear this, it's very cool . . .

Some newer stuff--Guided By Voices and Mercury Rev. GBV is playing here next week, so I want to catch up. Entoo, you should check this out, power pop in the Cheap Trick, The Move mode . . . MercRev also do a nifty cover of Neil's "Cortez."

Dian Krall--Hey, Sinatra and Bacharach songs in that sultry voice . . . how could I resist that smoky and sensual jazz voice?

Seems to me that I heard somewhere (and I COULD be mistaken) that Tony Levin was actually feeling quite ill the night that show was recorded, and he's not on stage. There was another bass player listed that was filling in.. if I remember correctly, the name was Hispanic sounding, but I don't remember the actual name.

Today I listened to Mag twice through. I'm not bored with it yet and I don't expect I ever will be.

Last night I listened to TFTO from start to finish. What a treat that was - nobody around but me and the pets, laying on the floor in the dark doing nothing but listening to TFTO. Haven't had that kind of time to fart around in weeks.

Isn't that nice to do every once and a while? I can only appreciate Tales if I hear it through the whole way, so I rarely RARELY listen to it. Its best appreciated in the dark, when Im in a reflective mood, I did it once this summer and you feel great when your done listening to it! Probably wont listen to it for another year or so though.

Lately its been:

1. Dream Theater-"Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence"

WOW!

2. Rush-"Hemispheres"

I never bothered listening to Rush before, but i bought this used for 4 bucks to give it a whirl. Cant believe I looked them over for so long. Cool shit that Cygnus X-1 is! "The Trees" blows my ass though!

3. Flower Kings-"The Rainmaker"

An unexpected grower. I hated it at first, took a LONG time to crack. Ive had the CD for a month and a half and I'm only just now REALLY getting to know how the songs go. For all the easy accessability of it there sure are some parts that I found tough to listen to at first. And for the first time, there are two prog songs I can relate to lyrically!!! "Serious Dreamers" (I am one!) and "Elaine" (I have been and am Elaine from time to time, you wouldnt get it unless you knew the words I guess!) Lacks the one-two punches of the knockout tracks of their other albums, but as a complete album, its their best one.

4. Nick Drake-"Way To Blue"

He has an endearing quality to him I really like. Like the shy guy at a party that you just want to go put your arm around and say "Awwww, I'll be your friend!" Won't listen to this much, but its good mellow music.

5. Yes-"Union"

It reminds me of happy times in the summer out in the backyard with my family when i was a tyke, my dad played it a lot that summer (its still the same CD too, from when it came out!) People hate Union but for me it reminds me of happy, innocent times.

Yet another bloated post. Sorry!

This week at home its been:

Renaissance - Scheherazade and Other Stories
Big Elf - Closer to Doom
Ange - Rideau!
Pulsar - The Strands of the Future (been in constant rotation for about three weeks now, this stuff is amazing)
Yes - Keys 1, Disc One

What I took to work this past week:

Trey Gunn Band - One Thousand Years
Pip Pyle (Gong, Hatfield and the North) - 7 Year Itch
Renaissance - Novella
Jon and Vangelis - The Friends of Mr. Cairo
Utopia - Swing to the Right
Mark Nauseef - Wun-Wun
Wendy Carlos - Digital Moonscapes

Eric, I have to say I gave up on the new Flower Kings, maybe I will have to go back. Also I love Nick Drake as well, I should take this to the office next week.

Also Eric by "Blows Ass", does that mean that you like or dislike "The Trees"?

It was great! I hoped it would put me to sleep, didn't work though. And don't worry about bloated posts, I think I made 50 sleep-deprived posts yesterday and nobody's whined yet so I think you're OK.

On my playlist today is ... ta-da! ... Extended Versions! Just found it at WAL-MART this morning, if you can believe that.

Frank Zappa..."Joe's Garage"

Really trippy stuff (of course), but I was wondering... has anyone else heard "Joe's Garage" before? And, if so, what do you think about that incredible guitar instrumental, "Watermelon in Easter Hay?"

Well, if most normal people like getting their ass blown, then yes, I like "The Trees" <img src=pix/icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

I was about to give up on Rainmaker too, but something about it made me want to keep listening to it. I dont know what. Maybe having the CD for two months, playing it a lot, and STILL not knowing how the songs went intrigued me to keep listening. There's some things I find annoying, "Thru The Walls" a perfectly good song, had to get ruined by the Tuva singer at the end! Ok, to start off the CD its cool but I really didnt need to hear that again! "Red Alert was unnecessary. I thought "Elaine" was one of the yuckiest songs I ever heard at first, but the lyrics really got to me, although they sound a little silly, and I love it now. And how CAN'T you like "Last Minute....," "Serious Dreamers," "Sanctuary," and the mighty "Sword Of God?" Hasse's vocals on that one give me chills, he needs to sing like that more often!! Goddamn! Try Rainmaker again dude.

Let's see, whats it been today?

Usual fare...

1. Flower Kings-"Retropolis" and "Rainmaker"

2. Yes-"Close To The Edge"

And nothing else! But music listening wise its all I needed today, I've become a real serious Flower Kings addict and I love it! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

"Silent Sorrow" is one of the coolest tunes I've heard in ages! I could see how some of you dirty old hippies could call it "some groovy shit!" Makes me want to wiggle my bum! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
