In a pan-American conspiracy to return the favour, and dutifully inspired by a little Machiavelli , we have  created a poll for our beloved finnforest based on his favorites, some "bangers" from Ye Olde Country (Floyd, Bush, Gryphon) , some of his Italiano prog antipasto (washed down with some fine Barolo) , a Canadian legend and some of his local (and somewhat frozen) heroes. Wink. Hopefully , he won't pick Frank Sinatra!!!!!, Who of course , started the Italian School of Prog in the first place, LOL!

Poll title from sinkadotentree, we did a little collab side work in order to get back at finnforest! LOL Nice vote for Mitchell, this will really get the ball rolling! Perhaps even a Sinatra vote! That would be something!Big smile

RQtG3 is the best album up there, in my opinion. Shear genious instrumental work by Gryphon.

I opine that the "darker" side of finnforest would really be about Kate Bush Heart , who has declined his marriage proposals allegedly Broken Heartand for whom our man has strong and wet desires !Wacko  I am sure he would love to share some fine Brunello di Montalcino,  a nice Saltimbocca a la Romana and a lovely Grappa finale while listening to BDM, whispering (how apropos!) sweet Italian nothings in her ear! Evil Smile Censored Hey, Jim , do ya have blue eyes by any chance, it may help!    LOL

Thomas, would you seriously drink Barolo with antipastoAngryTongueLOL? I've always drunk it (though I can't say I particularly like it) with robust stuff such as roast lambWink...

Anyway, I voted for the Floyd, with Kate a close second.

IL BACCIO DELLA MEDUSA Thumbs Up
I consider Jim(Finnforest) a good friend who knows way too much about the Italian-Prog genre and PINK FLOYD. I've benefited from this knowledge many time so i'm not complaining. Talking with Jim about music and growing up has always been special to me. And his reviews make me envious.I don't know how many times i've thought "I wish i said that".
One of my favourites from Mr.Russelli is when he compared the lesser know Italian bands to the "Big 3". And i quote  "...i'll take the blue collar Italian restaurant in the rough part of town with it's checkered table cloth,80 year-old family sauce recipe,and slight spilled beer smell over the black tie Italian cafe downtown with the trained superstar chef who has been on cooking shows". Yeah that's Jim.And try getting a 5 star rating from him.LOL

John, that little family restaurant was a real place, in my family's traditions for 7 decades....and it burned down last night my friend....i sh*t you not.  i teared up a bit watching the grandsons of the man who opened in '33.  they're going to try to re-open, but at this point i don't know.  i saw the video and it didn't look good.  Cry

These people are like family, I'm heartbroken today.

Merry Christmas!

Raff, I am in the wine and restaurant business and yes Barolo (needing to be decanted at least an hour before serving ) is not what I or you want to drink with antipasto, but I wanted to provide some heartache to Signore Russelli who ambushed both sinkadotentree and I and only indegestion would befit him as a suitable torture! As my post title said Revenge is a dish better eaten cold, but knowing Jim , he would probably be sipping some Rose de Provence or champagne! Confusedclassy fellow !

I went with Kick Inside. I'm not completely familiar with it yet so currently I kinda enjoy Piper more, but now I felt more like picking Kate. I've gotta listen to Gryphon more, it seems like good stuff. Il tempo della gioia would be a lot better without the falsetto parts that sound just like me trying to reach higher than I ought to.
