And to be quite frank, I found the one album I reviewed quite boring.....that it never enticed me to rent the other albums in my library sustem.
let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

They do some really good stuff. Many compare them to Mr. Bungle in their expanse of styles. But they have been accused of arranging a series of musical non-sequitors.  Mr. Bungle tends to use different styles, but with transitions that usually allow one to comprehend the intended direction.

I enjoy Estradasphere from time to time. But I also irritate my friends by putting my entire collection on random so I get play sequences like Genesis followed by Meshuggah followed by The Ohio Players followed by Coltrane followed by Rimsky-Korsokov followed by The Residents followed by Tom Jones folowed  by Strapping Young Lad...etc. So the musical non-sequitors don't bug me.

I'm not really a fan. They do the lol, random genre shifts better than Mr Bungle, but I still don't find them very interesting. Thanks for the smooth jazz song on Palace of Mirrors, guys...

What about having a look at the database before posting (and attacking others)?

Well I don't know about this band, but this guy definitely doesn't belong here. Good thing he's not.

Mimicry is Spruance's label; they're on the End Records now.
 
Listen to Songs like Hunger Strike and Meteorite Showers before you decide they're not "Prog enough."  I'm highly awaiting their new CD, but I'm still gonna miss Whooley and Murray. :(

I'm disappointed - neither of these players are avant-garde!

Palace of Mirrors isn't their only album. And P of M IS a movie soundtrack.

They previously released 1999's "It's Understood", 2001's "Buck Fever", 2004's "Quadropus", and a number of live albums and eps.

Estradasphere have a change-on-a-dime kitchen sink format, going from death metal to world music to big-band to 8-bit video game score to jazz to hiphop to electronica to country to folk to classical to miscellaneous format, sometimes in the course of ONE song!.

Their first albums were released on Trevor Dunn's Web of Mimicry label, and much like Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, moved over to The End Records.

karny's a legend that some would like to forget.  I was a long-time lurker before joining and remember some of his antics.

To uselessly answer greenback's old question:  I know Estradasphere -- excellent band.  I'm very happy to have discovered it thanks to the archives a couple of years ago.
You shall know the greatness of an artist by the humility. I am very humble and therefore very great.

Picked up Palace of Mirrors.  This isn't Prog, plain and simple.  It's SOUNDTRACK music and would fit very well into a number of films, but has no place in Prog Archives.

Firstly, have you yet made any comments not either praising ELP or criticising people who aren't ELP (which is quite a few)?

Secondly, do you know anything about Estradasphere? Or do you mean a year at the most on top of the several years (I admit, I don't know exactly, but I think they've done three or four albums and a DVD) that they've already played for?

You don't really have a leg to stand on, when complaining about people criticising ELP, if you're going to insult the vast majority of other bands left right and centre. Or is this all an elaborate joke created by somebody to expose how ludicrous the stereotypical ELP fan is? I hope so, but if not, then you're living a cliché and for your own sake I hope you can leave it.

 

On topic, I love Estradasphere. Have you heard any bootlegs? If not, check out http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collect ion=etree&cat=Estradasphere&PHPSESSID=0ef8f0e8e7538e ca6da24a33baa75217 for a healthy few. I definitely recommend the Jazz Club one. Also, I'd call them prog but I can see a lot of people disagreeing. Either way they're a very interesting listen.

 

edit: when I say "I hope you can leave it" I wasn't alluding to suicide at all; I meant to stop acting in a clichéd manner (had to clear that one up!).

If Mr. Bungle is here than Estradasphere belongs here.
