I do like that album. Sadly I don’t think he made another one but became an eminent Sci-fi writer.

Nine Stones Close - Leaves

A new line up has produced a harder edged sound - gone are the gently smooth vocals of Marc Atkinson, replaced by the more traditionally rock orientated Adrian O’Shaughnessy.

5 tracks and 58 mins is a clear indication that there are some epics involved and they are all pretty good. Think I prefer the earlier sound but it is good to see a band / project evolving.

The title track makes me out a liar as it takes a while to get going and is not really indicative of the rest of the album until past half way.

I’m a bit put off by the Dream Theatre connection (and his stupid beard) but thought I’d give it a listen or 2.

It’s pretty good in places and (of course) the guy can play but seems overlong to me and I was waiting for it to end on 1st play. This is 2nd time around; let’s see if I make it to the end...

He made 2 albums, his first musical project was with band named Julian's Treatment. With this band he released an album in 1970 called A Time Before This. In 1971, with a new band he released the album Waiters On The Dance under his own name.

Never really cared for Uriah Heep, went to see them once, think I lasted 3 or 4 songs before leaving.

This on the other hand is a delight, love this NY album. Not prog but under the broad church banner and because he has featured here a number of times.

Floyd album I rarely play, never quite sure if I like it or not - think I do, and was never keen on the cover.

Another band who were massively against streaming services and vowed never ever to go that route have seen sense in today’s world.

Not a massive fan myself, some great moments but it seems to me there’s often no real melody in their songs; at least now they have smelled the coffee and are on Spotify I can give them a bit more time and see if they grow on me.

Starting with this one....

Just tried this myself - well, after 20 mins NOTHING has happened and it’s making me want to reach inside my skull and scratch my brain so I’ve given up on it for the sake of my sanity. :cry:

Your Lordship - as you are starting with this one I assume you have not heard any of the earlier stuff (or at least aren't that familiar)

For me, when Crimso reformed with this album it wasn't really King Crimson. When they 'reformed' Fripp actually called the band Discipline but about 6 months later reverted back to KC. I wonder why?

It never goes down too well but Red to me was their last album - after that they became something else.

That said - try something else.

I would recommend this to you:

Try it!

Totally agree. They lost all accessibility after Red. Some may say that they have never been accessible, but I will say "You are fools!" :)
