  1. Losing It was very well done. Nice, full sound. Definitely stood out to me.
  2. I prefer full albums. I usually listen to them on my phone from ripping the discs, but I just ordered some cool blank CD's that look like vinyls, so I'm gonna put those files on those and keep them in my car. It just seems more real to listen on CDs or vinyls.
  3. I gathered with my entire high school senior class for graduation practice. Does that count?

  5. So I'm a huge fan of rock music getting experimental. Great things happen when bands deviate from the classic guitar, bass, drums, keys, and vocal setup. I was wondering if anyone knew of any bands that has frequent use of the violin (besides Kansas), as I'm trying to find a band with such a sound to get into. Anything helps. Thanks!

  7. Don't leave early! They'll probably end with "Nothin' But A Good Time" and trust me, it's awesome. I saw them with Def Leppard and Tesla a year or two ago and they were amazing. You won't want to miss the encore.
  8. Styx is playing near me on the night of my high school graduation. Looks like I'm not going to graduation...

  10. I have heard many answers to this, all of them different. The Synth Era undoubtedly started with Signals in 1982 (big stylistic change between MP and Signals.) But when do you think it ended? I know that their use of synthesizers went way down with Presto, but I consider the end to be after Roll the Bones, because although the synths stopped, the style and structure of the songs stayed the same until Counterparts changed it. That's just my thought. What do you think?
  11. Voted La Villa Strangiato, but Natural Science and Something For Nothing are great contenders as well.
  12. Presto is IMMENSELY overlooked. It's got a nice groove going on, and it seems to be one of the more calmer albums Rush has done. Anagram is awesome, the use of rhythm guitar really drives the song and makes it feel good, and the piano is a nice rare occasion in a Rush song, something that just makes the song unique. Yet, the distortion guitar crunches through the song, and it all just blends well together.

    Clock road

    I'm just gonna try to get this back to a discussion about Clockwork Angels... I think the album is great. Personally, it's a top three because I can relate to the theme of longing for adventure. That being said, it has some hiccups, but its best to look at the album as a whole instead of individual parts. It's a concept album, so if you look at one song at a time, you will lose the continuity that allows the album to achieve its great state. And yes, it does have a Caress of Steel vibe going on. Listen to Headlong Flight's riff and tell me it doesn't sound like Bastille Day.
