Actually, I just wanted to thank Matti for dropping no less than FOUR superb Italian album reviews in a row recently, with his run of the latest Universal Totem Orchestra, Phoenix Again, Panther and C. and Il Tempio delle Clessidre write-ups. Sadly I'm still waiting on my order with these titles so I feel I dropped the ball in not having gotten around to them yet, so it's very appreciated that he offered his usual excellence in discussing those particular recent Italian titles.

I have already added The Storm my future music acquisitions list.

Belated cheers, guys, (sorry, been away from the site the last few days), thank you.

Robert, if you decide to take a chance on The Storm, there's a great 2 CD reissue of their two albums called `Lost in Time', limited to 1000 copies, that's well worth grabbing! Both sound very different from each-other, but are equally great albums.

The 1000th review by Kev Roland. Clap And of the band that got him into prog in the first place, Galahad. Very cool.

By the way, did you get the album on CD or LP? I've only got the compact disc, but damn I envy anyone who picks that second one up on the larger vinyl format, just look at that cover!  

Hey Michael, my usual method of checking out new band is to buy a digital download (high res if possible), if I really like it I will get the CD, which I will in this case.  Unfortunately, I have not been in the vinyl world in a long time :(
But yeah, that album cover is a killer!

Hey, Jim, great to hear you enjoyed the album (I'm sure Thomas would be stoked as well), always nice to find out someone likes an album of something we reviewed as opposed to a `What the hell are they on about?!' response...which I'm sure has also happened plenty!

I know the band kind of splintered a few months back, but are trying to work through it, hopefully it all comes together, there's too much talent in that group based on the strength of their first two discs!

By the way, did you get the album on CD or LP? I've only got the compact disc, but damn I envy anyone who picks that second one up on the larger vinyl format, just look at that cover!

A good rule of thumb is the following: don't write a review that takes longer to read than the album takes to play! LOL 

Someone wrote a Mr Bungle review a year or two ago that i still haven't been able to finish because it's like the longest review EVER!!!!


Readers and writers come in all different speeds. I managed to get through this post 1/3 through the second disc of Tales.

I just wanted to slot it into the front page while there were no other `Is This The Life We Really Want' reviews there, but give it a few hours, I'm sure another will pop up before too long! It's not too often we get such high-profile releases in Prog Land!


Michael. It's a decent read, my friend. Not to worry.
Also, I finally got some great time with the album yesterday. Spun it about three 3 times. It's a hit with me.
It's nothing short of a brilliant mood piece. What I mean by that is you really have to be in the right head space to fully appreciate this album. It's not a casual listen and I like how your review kind of indicated that to be so.

Thanks mate.

^Yeah, it's starting to get to that time when I start skipping over the over saturated reviews, so your's probably made it in just under the wire! LOL

Aussie-Byrd-Brother is right on the money with his review of Is This The Life We Really Want. Thumbs Up I agree with his rating too. Not quite a masterpiece, 3.5 stars seems right for this very enjoyable prog album. ;)

I liked it too. Makes me very excited to buy a copy of it.

Cool first review from Jude111 on the new Waters'  solo album. I know that you're a fan of solo Waters but this gives us non solo Waters' fans some hope. So, good show old boy! Clap
