Thank you!  I've been especially obsessed with that album recently, and I have some other older albums I need to review soon.  I'm not sure why John played on this album, but I imagine he was Gilmour's first choice.

Yes. I agree.
You know it's funny cause ever since I've been a member of PA I've been trying to tell people just how unbelievably awesome this album is. It's nice to see Jason having a high regard for AMLIR.
His review did it some much needed justice. I stand by his review and the album of course. ;)
It's in my top 3 as well. ;)

Ah what the hell. I just bought a new DAC so I'm gonna listen to it right now.

To Dobermensch's recent review stint! Wow those were great. I particularly enjoyed the latter two on Wakhevitch and Zappa

wow, just read that review- some beautiful words   there  Patricia....


The Garden of my life has finally started to blossom and though even to this day there is a lot of weeding and upkeep to do I can be proud to look on the flowers of the friendships and love I have nurtured along the way. Like a fragile and beautiful flower the friendship between two people needs to be cared for and looked after or else it will wither and die. The blossoms of passion need to be watered and looked after regularly or they will be there for you no more. These are the things I have taught myself when I have remembered that "the measure of a life is a measure of love and respect". 


Very nice!

I really enjoyed reading your DT review Jonas, thanks for that
I don't think I will be picking it up, but it was a very nice review

I never did pick that one up, in part being a big Portnoy fan but also reading some stuff about it that I knew I wouldn't like.

Thanks Michael, and it was your review that convinced me I needed this along with Tom Hays words on the RYM site.

Thanks :-). I´m really biased about Dream Theater these days. They always do something spectacular and then go on to play something pretty awful (or at least pretty tedious to these ears). They are playing it safe these days and even though they are still progressive in terms of genre definitions, I don´t really think they are progressive in the true sense of the Word anymore. Not that they have to be to make great music, but I guess I just don´t feel they write full albums of great material anymore.

Well, it's not a flagship album or anything, but make no mistake it is still high quality Prog music that displays a lot of their evolved character and touches upon some of their influences that helped make them great.
If you love Rush, you'll find an appreciation for this album. Petrucci has some very memorable guitar solos on the record.
I really think, (Dave and John) that you guys should give this one a fair listen meaning pop on a great pair of headphones and immerse yourself in the album. It's truly worth it. Actually, Michael's (Aussie-Byrd-Bro) did a very fair and nice critique in his review for it. :)
Anyway I trust you Both will get something out of it...I really do. ;)

^ For such a not-so-negative review you think he'd rate the album at least a tad higher. I dunno.

Yep that got me a little perplexed as well. Maybe he chose a descriptive approach that didn't lean too much on personal opinion. From his words alone I would've guessed 3 stars minimum, but then again I'm a sucker for music that pushes the envelope.
Great review though.

JD's review of new Yes gave me a good laugh (not in a bad way)

A blunt, realistic review of an album that is sure to have talk surrounding it.

2 stars Stationery Traveller: an album that manages to capture the awe inspiring experience of walking through aisles of reams of blank paper, envelopes, pencils and paper clips......

From Scott's (Evolver) latest review.   I must disagree with the rating, but what a great opening line. LOL

Thank you for cheering me up. Approve
