I found it surrealistic in the Dali's art sense of meaning.

OK, but it sounds odd in British English in the context that you used it. Plain simple "surreal" would have sounded better. rolleyes

Surreal and Surrealistic have different meaning, am I wrong?

Surreal means 'something weird' (correct me if I am wrong).

Surrealistic has to do with an art style and the way to understand art and life from this perspective (Dalí). That is what I was referring to.

By the way, I have to say that the Dalí's exhibition in Madrid is fantastic and highly recommended.

I wonder if he was one of Roger Dean's influences, based on that picture.

I have a high quality picture of the Genesis Live album cover on my computer, and for the first time, I finally noticed that Hackett is in fact in the photograph. I thought he was off-camera at first, but he is actually in shadow.

Lo and behold, this post eventually turned up in the right thread. grin

For a moment, I thought you were saying that it had been removed, possibly by a conforums glitch.

Had that been the case, I would've posted in the "It's Gonna Get Better- Board Discussion" forum.

Because everybody seems to have given up posting there, presumably through boredom.

I thought people posted there because of boredom.

I loved the "Opposite Songs" thread. More interesting stuff like that, and I might visit. smiley
