Guys,

After picking up on them in a recent forum thread, I've just ordered a CD by the Rocket Scientists (Brutal Architecture).

I'm taking a real flyer on this one, as I've never heard a single thing by these guys. I'm just going on their description and reviews here.

So? Is it going to be   or  ?

Heh heh...

So Catholic Flame, I take it that's a yes then?

In fact, it was your comment in the "Newer Prog" thread that led me to check these guys out, so you do realise that you'll be held accountable if I don't like it?

I recently found Rocket Scientists online, as it turns out more people like "Oblivion Days" than "Brutal Architecture" but goodluck! I've never heard the one you've ordered.

Well, I received my copy of "Brutal Architeture" yesterday (ultra fast service from an Amazon Marketplace dealer! Autographed copy as well!), and I'm already on my fourth listening.

What a terrific album! "Mariner" is one of the most beautiful tracks I've discovered thanks to Prog Archives and its users. The overall feel is kind of Kayak/Parsons/Satellite. As my old dad might say, it really floats my boat!!

I've gone back to the same dealer, and have ordered a copy of "Oblivion Days". Can't wait for it to arrive!!

See, this is what I love most about Prog Archives. Until last week, I'd never heard of Rocket Scientists. Now, I'm adding another 2 terrific discs to my collection (I'm sure Oblivion Days won't disappoint!).   Big thanks to PA user Catholic Flame for the initial recommendation!
