Deserve?


No.


No but Bruford only guested I think.

Clearly something was going on with Mike Safron (who later returned I think)

A perfect album methinks

Beautifully crafted

RIP those band members no longer with us. Thank you

Seconded.


Very glad we went for this in the end rather than At the Sound Of.



Superb album.




Many thanks for the excellent company, have great weekends.



To Reap and Kath.

Just for future reference, do you start at 9pm without saying “go”?


We’ve SEEN Mike Safron! He was sidelined because they said he wasn’t up to it.


That was fun.
The house that Clete’s musician friend had told him about was a sun-faded pink art deco place stuck back in a cove where a desiccated shrimp boat lay on its side in a slough overgrown with vines and palm and persimmon trees.

Glad I'm not the only one who does that.

Yes. Would they have had the material for a longer album? Should they have started in the CD age would we have received a weaker album overall? All killer, none of the proverbial filler.

It’s been in my all time top 5 since I first heard it all those years ago.

What else might tempt me?
Steven Wilson’s Hand Cannot Erase or To The Bone or The Raven.
What will The Illuminati say to those I wonder....

See me at the end of the lesson






I caught you walking on a rainy day
And tossing petals into a pool
So keep your mind off passing hours
'Cause I'll be coming for you soon

Make believe you are a dancer
Though perhaps you'd make a better queen
And before you leave you better count roses
And a mad, mad way you want to scream
Or if you want, he'll give you slippers
Or shoot an arrow on past the sun
Or be the keeper always of my mind and heart
Or is it best you go unseen

Once you were star-struck and now twice you're not
And things go badly as they do
But I want the rainbows out of heaven
I'll only steal them when I can

And me I'm just your soldier
An heirloom to a basket queen
And all the blisters, and I'm fevered
And only silence killed my dreams
If you want he'll give you slippers
Or shoot an arrow on past the sun
Or be the keeper always of my mind and heart
You think you got control
You don't, you'll never know, you'll never know

You'll be the keeper of the Holy Grail
You seize it quick, you dare not fail
You're the only survivor of your holy quest
Or is it best you go unseen

Mostly the same, but the "an heirloom to a basket queen, and all the blisters, and I'm fevered" line is wrong.



I caught you walking on a rainy day And tossing pebbles to a pool To keep your mind off passing hours 'Cause I'll be coming for you soon Make believe you are a dancer Though perhaps you make a better queen And for your leave better count losses (might be roses?) And a mad man made you want to scream If you walk in gilded slippers And shoot an arrow on past the sun Or be the keeper always of my mind and heart Or is it best you go unseen? Once you were star-struck and now twice you're not And things go madly as they do And all the rainbows aren't in heaven I'll only steal them when I can And me I'm just your hired soldier An errant to a bastard queen An arm of blisters and I’m fevered *I hear you drowning in my dreams If you walk in gilded slippers And shoot an arrow on past the sun Or be the keeper always of my mind and heart You think you got control, you don't, You'll never know, you'll never know You'll be the keeper of the Holy Grail You seize it quick, you dare not fail You're the only survivor of your holy quest Or is it best you go unseen?

Sorry I couldn't manage to join in. A wonderful album. So much packed into 34 minutes. The mellotrons are up there with Crimson. The album is a whole, it flows so well and needs played from start to finish. At the Sound of the Bell is good and has some brilliant songs but doesn't have the continuity that this had.

An Errant to A Bastard Queen.

What a line.
