Grimspound, played it a dozen or more times now and it's a prog masterpiece.

No 45 in the U.K. Albums Chart, No 11 in the Vinyl Chart and No 1 in the Rock and Metal Album Chart.

Brilliant news!

Only just seen that 41 yo Kevin Garcia bassist and co-founder of Grandaddy died as a result of a stroke last week. :cry:

On first track so far, sounds promising!
Very droonish so far.
I got the vinyl with CD included! Nice! :)

Kant Freud Kafka - "Onirico"

I really liked the debut album from a couple of years ago, and this is equally as good if not better. Spanish guy with helpers has put together another symphonic classical album that appeals greatly. IIRC the debut was fully instrumental although this one has some vocals.

Neuschwanstein - "Battlement"

If you don't already know, you can probably guess, German band from the 70s. Bit of a Gabriel era Genesis / Fish era Marillion rip off but it's done so well it is well worth playing and is highly regarded from what I've read.

(Probably featured on here before but search doesn't show anything. Still, I guess it can't if the artist / album names weren't posted in the body.)

The thing is, every time he posts a clip I play it. I can't stop myself!
