Hi,

I noticed that Colin is not on the pictures for the show ... I would imagine that the band will use Nick Beggs since his ability is probably better suited to help the band other than just bass guitar playing ... but you already know it will sound different. 

I thought the single was more of a SW song, than something that PT would do ... which had more trippy long stuff and pieces, which I think SW will do away with for PT as he did in their last 3 or 4 albums. But Colin not being there ... you might see why ... one thing he released was very interesting, but I seriously doubt many PT fans will ever touch it ... it was jazz'y as heck and I doubt that SW wants anything to do with that!

I have the new album on pre-order.......Hoping for a US tour, SW loves Seattle so I'm hoping they make it here. I am fine with Nick Beggs, he's a monster bass player and already tours with SW solo material and they play PT material also.

Is anyone else going to ignore all the single releases in order to take in the whole album at once in June? It's going to be hard, but that's my plan! I've waited this long, what's another 6 months?

Hi,

Honestly, with so much new music coming around, waiting for Godot to come home with some coffee, I'm not sure that it will happen, and we're adding more "hope" this or that to it, than it's worth the thought or idea.

I am of the opinion that SW can not do PT anymore. He will do another version of SW and the PT folks that are coming along, are merely along for the ride ... with the free money they get! I can't blame them, but feeling they will come up with something like they did 20 years ago, is really a drag for me ... there isn't a band out there that has done that ... other than Djam Karet in my book, still creative and different after all these years!

For SW, and PT in its latest form (their last 3 or 4 albums) it was all about SW's songs, and the tripping, and far out moments the band had which was the stuff that we liked the most, was pretty much gone in favor of "more lyrics" that supposedly mean something and are important. More like self-important, I would think, and that's his role in the rock music world. I'm OK with that, but don't expect me to spend a cent when there is so much great music that ... we're not listening to ... because of things like this!

We've lost the sense of adventure in progressive music. All we can do is look for the second coming ... of someone or other!

It’s what I always do these days. The last time I listened to a single ahead of an album’s release was SW’s “Permanating”, which I thought was dire when I heard it. I didn’t listen to any of the other “To The Bone” singles, and only listened to the album after I read a review that stated how much the reviewer hated “Permanating” when it was released as a single, and lamented it’s choice as a single because they felt it worked incredibly within the album itself. The reviewer stated that it went from a hated to a loved song once heard within context. I gave “To The Bone” a listen, and I really liked it.

Ever since, I have always ensured to ignore pre-release singles, and I only ever listen to those singles once I have the album, so that I can hear them in context. I thought it would be hard, but it has actually been really easy. There is always so much to listen to, that I don’t need to hear individual songs ahead of an album.

Would I have liked the singles released from SW’s “The Future Bites” if I heard them outside the context of the album? I don’t know - but I do know that TFB is probably my favourite SW solo album. 🤷🏻‍♂️

So, I’m probably one of only a few PT fans who are eagerly awaiting the new album, but haven’t yet listened to the new single.

Hi,

I think this is sort of like the old days in the 60's when the singles came out, and if they hit some reasonable thoughts and numbers, the record company would immediately work an album to try and maintain the momentum.

I think that SW has a lot of different choices and ideas, and is not clear what he wants or doesn't want, and if the single confuses people, or they love it, it takes away 5 other choices he might have had.

Honestly, if you have to go fishing to figure out what you want to do, or need to do, he's just fishing for more money ... just like the old days! Good gawd ... 60 years ... and still the same folks and ideas! Where has progressive gone? To the cows and pastures! Maybe some milk will come!
