Eric Clapton: August and Behind The Sun ****1/2

Bot were on sale smiley on Amazon.com/uk

I couldn't believe how well those albums were produced before I had a go (80's style)

cool

And ofcourse the producer is Phil Collins. If you're a Phil Collins or 80's music fan you're gonna love those.

I almost forgot, I bought M&TM - The Road ****
and Beggar On A Beach Of Gold ****

I found a great site to purchase progressive rock CDs/DVDs http://www.kinesiscd.com/index.html

They have tons of great music, links to CD reviews, and audio samples as well.

Kinesis have a great philosophical statement regarding the definition of progressive music
http://www.kinesiscd.com/philosophy.htm

Use the tabs at the top to go from page to page. Each page will give a list of artists to the left.

My purchases -
Art Rock Circus - Tell a Vision
Koi - In Tomorrow Hid Yesterday
Believe - World Is Round (digipack)
Quidam - Strong Together DVD/2CD

Sun Domingo - Songs for end times

The alternative/progressive rock band Sun Domingo from Atlanta, GA, USA, has been around for several years and have played hundreds of shows in the USA. Last year they played a ten-date European tour with The Pineapple Thief. This (and also supporting Marillion and John Wesley) gained the band serious momentum amongst the alternative, progressive rock fans. This studio album was recorded and engineered by John Holmes, co-produced and mixed by Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief) and features an all-star cast of guest performances including: Steve Hogarth (Marillion), Adrian Belew (King Crimson, David Bowie), John Wesley (Porcupine Tree) and Bruce Soord (The Pineapple Thief).

Just ordered from HMV online:

It was only 2.99 and with HMV e-mailing me a 20% off promotional code, I ended up paying a mere 2.39. smiley

Kate Bush - Director's Cut Collector's Edition with Sensual World and The Red Shoes remastered.

Nice packaging, but that picture of the chandeliers in the ballroom brings the scene in 'Only Fools & Horses' to my mind!

Yeah, I don't know. I picked these three up on eBay for $11 altogether.

Some really good stuff... I think I could get one fine album's worth of songs from these three. But a lot of the novelty and eccentricity and silliness I just really can't get into. Frankly, given the recent thread we had here on "10cc vs. Supertramp", I expected much better. At this point I couldn't mention those bands in the same breath, but I will keep an open mind and keep on listening! smiley

I can see how some of 10cc's lyrical wittiness and eccentricity is more appealing to a British audience than to an American one. Conversely, whilst Supertramp are a British band who were fairly successful over here, they were to the best of my understanding bigger in the US. I suppose that culminated in commercial terms with Breakfast In America. All I can really add is that both bands are in my top ten 1970s bands, but that I have a 10cc a hair's breadth ahead. wink

Yeah, I think you've been taking lessons from our friend Clucker McBawk on separating the Yanks from the Brits. tongue wink

Lyrics--witty or not--don't enter into it for me at all. 10cc could be singing James Joyce's Ulysses for all I care. It's the musical eccentricities that I find most jarring... odd passages on nearly every song that distract me from some of the fantastic melodies and themes that are otherwise evident. It's like sort of a "Willow Farm-ism": I find myself thinking, "Wow, that's such a great song... why'd they stick that stupid part in there??" wink

Meanwhile, I break with my compatriots in that I don't like Breakfast In America. I consider it a huge disappointment--mega-popularity aside--after the sonic brilliance of the three Supertramp albums that preceded it.

Overall, if we're talking about Supertramp vs. 10cc or the "comparison" of any artists, I think one's preferences are often dictated by experience, memory, and nostalgia. There are certainly artists from my younger years that I still love, but I could never get into today. If today I heard "Bohemian Rhapsody" for the first time, I'd probably think it was dumb.

And maybe that's a great example here, as I find much of the 10cc I'm currently exploring to be very "Bohemian Rhapsodic." smiley
