I have been watching Doug Helvering's (The Daily Doug) reactions for several months now. He has a doctorate in music, is a composer and well he knows musical construction very well. He posted this one yesterday and I thought it very entertaining/educational considering the musical piece is in his wheel house. I really enjoy how he breaks music down and really gives a perspective that in many cases I don't see/hear or pick up on listens.

When I got the new LTE3 album the first song I played was Rhapsody In Blue, as I wanted to hear what/how the arranged the pc and I was very pleased with what they did. It may be my favorite song that LTE has recorded.

Enjoy.....

I liked his reactions to Machine Messiah and La Villa Strangiato. Haven't had the time to watch more, but hopefully will in the future.

I like how he suggested that "2112" should be made into a stage show, in how it was composed by Rush.

PresDoug, that's the guy. I was just trying to remember who the Triumvirat guy was. I don't think he's been around for a while.

I love this guy, he may be a different breed of Doug, but he's one of the few reaction style channels that actually have a good value and depth to them along with JustJP.

I was wondering when the Daily Doug would pop up on ProgArchives. He's seriously amazing. He provides insights into song structures and meanings that I had never considered, even if I know how to play the song myself. What a pro!

I just watched his review and reaction of Close to the Edge and wondered if someone had already posted a thread about him.  Love this reaction video and how he tries to keep up with key changes, especially his reaction when Wakeman's organ solo comes in.

video removed for space
  That one's my favourite so far of his.  Smile  Wonder what he'd think of Wakeman using a paint roller to achieve a gliss on the organ on that tv show version of "Hangman and the Papist?"

Cool guy! His reaction video for my favourite band's epic "The Odyssey" (being the final song of the album with the same title) was immensely fun to watch.



Though, my first recommendation for him to "react" would be Rediscovery, Pt. II (The New Mythology) instead, which is the closing song of the previous Symphony X album entitled V: The New Mythology Suite. 



Yet, The Odyssey is less "wild", so lest one might get bewildered instead of bedazzled if confronted with "my" prominent choice first; the Greek epic adaptation is the safer choice and whoever recommended it did the right thing, seemingly. Oh, and the guy is "classical", FFS! LOL

Jamel aka Jamal had a great reaction to CTTE, I posted that one already here.
