I found all the love for Anathema's Weather System a little odd. IMO it's a weak copy of We're Here Because Here, IMO a much better album and their peak!!
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I agree. Terminal Twilight was a very fine album.

Phideaux has been on more of plane for me so think of him more like a kinda pizza if that doesn't make any sense.

Clap Very smart choice. Love self-confidence--mainly because as a creative person it's hard for me to muster up sometimes.

Smile It seems that I tend to have a lot more confidence in my work than others. Although I do think my stuff is kinda mediocre, I at the same time can really appreciate what I'm doing. Sometimes I'll listen to a song of mine, for instance "Sing" from my first album, and think it's something really special, but at the same time see why some people have criticized it.

Ditto!

Hey! I've been pretty busy with so much music that I've finally managed to squeeze in some more time for progressive rock. What's been going on around here? Anything new?

Not much, aside from some lengthy gun-control debates and prog as usual (maybe I've missed some stuff; my visits have been sporadic of late)

Quite the ego-booster, eh?

No, he's just confident and self-critical at the same time.  That's a good thing.

Yeah, I'll stay away from the gun-control debates. It's about as bad as discussing religion with someone. I would rather talk about something that unites people like music, which sometimes even music debates can become quite heated, but I've learned one thing from all the arguments I've had with people about music: it doesn't matter what I or anyone else says, people will like what they like and, in the end, who can blame them? Listen to music that gives you enjoyment and screw the rest of it that doesn't.

Yes, music is a good topic for friendly conversation, seeing as no one's life or soul or well being happens to be at stake; though you might think they were, the way I tend to talk about it sometimes Embarrassed

Anytime you have an in-depth conversation about music with someone there's going to be disagreements, but the best thing I've learned is to agree to disagree and move on. Cool

Unless you and the other person happen to be in a band together trying to write the piece of music in question!

Although agreeing to disagree could yield some excellent results in that case; you both just play whatever you want and get an avant-garde masterpiece!  LOL

Ok, so as an update, I'm only two songs into "Pandora's Pinata" but so far, I'm really digging Diablo Swing Orchestra.
I don't have an unnatural obsession with Disney Princesses, I have a five year old daughter and coping mechanisms.
