By all means Tymon join our club!! Hell it may even end up in yet another person checking out Igor Wakhevitch. Greg is chairman of the Igor Lunch Club so it is very recommended to brownnose him in unorthodox manners. The above jootoob clips may just be what the doctor's prescribed.

Thanks for the recs btw - much appreciated. It will have to wait until I get back behind my laptop but I'm looking forward to it - especially after having read your descriptions.
As a thank you I recommend you click the link I provided Greg. I think you'd dig The Comet Is Coming big time.

Heh...maybe it's about time this thread got back on track.
Hmmm...err...yeah. Let me be the first one here to admit to not liking Epitaph. I know I know BLASPHEMY!!! So many friends of mine absolutely adore this one, but I find it way too emotional in a way that borders on charicature. I blame the vocals entirely. It's like margarine with butter on top.

David: Love what I've heard so far of Channel the Spirits. "Prophesy' is right up my alley. Will listen to the whole thing at a later time.

Timon: Love the Milt Ward & Virgo Spectrum and the George Russell too.

Thanks for the recommendations. When I get the chance I'll really sit down to listen to all three in full, but heard enough already to know that I really like all three.

Erm, to finish this post in more of in an on-topic way.   I don't mind Greg Lake's singing on Epitaph, even if it is overwrought. I prefer him on In the Wake of Poseidon.

Ahhh, I need to listen to more of Igor. I did a tour of all of his albums about a year ago and came back to Docteur Faust and Logos a few times afterwards. Great music, really need to revisit.

And I really like what I'm hearing from The Comet is Coming so far. I am listening to the album as we speak, great stuff. Unlike anything I've heard really. Smile Thanks a lot!

And also to get on the topic, I know what you mean regarding Epitath, David. I got that the first time, too, as I did with a lot of classic prog when I was discovering the music for the first time a few years ago, it's not a problem for me now, though. I voted for ELP's debut, although it was a difficult decision. Both albums are great, but ELP's first might just be my favorite from the band and King Crimson had much better albums for me personally, hence my choice.
