Yes, a nice review by Bob and an autobuy for me.

I liked Greg's review on To Keep From Crying from Comus, but not sure why he dropped his rating from 4 stars down to 3 because he felt that other Comus fans wouldn't agree. He did an excellent job distinguishing the merits of this more upbeat album from the dark lords of prog folk's nearly infamous first album First Utterance. At least enough for me to give To Keep From Crying another spin with a fresh perspective. 

And that's what a good review is all about. Good job, Greg. Thumbs Up

Some great reviews here recently and I too adored Greg's review of the much maligned follow-up to First Utterance.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. I was captchad and lost another version of the review which had the same approach but was more concise (I should have been more careful, the "copy" had not taken). The one I posted I wrote hurriedly and sloppily and it required some edits, but in the edits I worried that the review became too long-winded and sermonizing. As for dropping my rating and giving that reason, it was a wimpy thing to do, but I felt that three is a fair rating to give it for the music here no matter how much I enjoy it. I was writing a different reason which I thought humorous, but it was over-the-top.

Michael ( Aussie-Byrd) who has been a review machine the last little bit, once again struck me over the head with beautiful word smithing. ;)

Metamorfosi's Purgatorio.

Needless to say. I'll be buying this album very shortly. Thanks Michael and nice history lesson too!

Raving and drooling I leaned on his neck with a screeeeeeeamm! ;)

Oh, thanks, Nick, that's nice of you!

Urgh, I never want to look at it again! To go from multiple listens over the last few months, to translate the words into English, to give the briefest of Layman's terms explanation of the original classic texts, to attempt to describe which scenes were being presented in the music - shoot me now! Would have ended up tearing my hair out if I could have afforded to!

There's not much I agree with on VianaProghead's review of TAAB2 as I find the album to be lacking on many levels, but it was an interesting read and places the original TAAB in it's proper standing in prog history.

Well at least we figured out the culprit as to why your going bald. Lol. :)

You deserve recognition and respect for this. It's a lot of work man.
Guys like me can see that. ;)
