STREAM OF PASSION Live in the Real World

Movie · 2006 · Progressive Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
One of the best concerts I have ever seen! There is never a dull moment. Some of the songs sound different than they did originally, but I do not think that is a bad thing. Valley of the Queens has drumming, it originally did not. This version of the song is also heavier. Other songs that sound different do so because of a change of singer(s). They do well while covering Led Zeppelin's When the Levee Breaks. I prefer that cover over the original! Marcela Bovio sings well and emotionally. She's a good multi-tasker. There are moments when she transitions well and in good time from singing to playing the violin and vice versa. Pretty much half of the time Stream of Passion material is played. And the other half of the time, Ayreon material is played. The whole concert is performed very well. If the songs aren't as good as they were originally, they're very close to being as good.

ETERNITY X The Edge

Album · 1997 · Progressive Metal

At this time, this is one of my favorite albums. It's one of the most underrated albums that I've heard if not the most underrated. It seems it's great in every way. There are great vocal melodies, yet it's not over the top or cheesy. The vocals are emotional, which is good in this context. In music, I think the thing that matters most to me is composure, that everything in the piece of music makes sense or connects with at least one other part of the piece more or less. It's certainly not how difficult it is to play things like solos. I don't care about how hard it is to play anything because extremely difficult things to play can easily sound bad. Perhaps that bit is obvious. Anyway, I think the composure of The Edge is great. Pain of Salvation fans must check this album out! In my honest (as always) opinion, it's better than any Dream Theater album.

AYREON The Human Equation

Album · 2004 · Progressive Metal

A fantastic album! It may be my favorite album of all time. I think it gives me more goosebumps than any other album I've ever heard. All of the singers are great. Every instrumental part is great. All of the compositions are great. Every aspect about it is great! I'm never bored when I listen to it. There isn't one track on it that I don't like. This album seems to take me on the biggest adventure. There's many corners to the cube. More so than any other album I've ever heard! Many interesting situations. This is a must buy!

    My vote goes to alternative-metal (Staind, Limp Bizkit, Nickelback, Linkin Park, Kittie, Disturbed, etc.). No offense to fans of the genre. Runners-up: glam-metal and metalcoreA particular sub-genre will probably get hate-bombed when the alternative-metal fans see my signature. cold1032010-04-29 23:36:01

    Have any of you guys heard about perfectprog.net? [link] I found it recently. It's a progressive-metal social network. I thought it was interesting.
