Well, we haven't heard back from Rosie yet so she's either deep into listening to it again or listened to it once and didn't like it.

I really hope it's the former smiley

I don't know where chessman is at the moment or the rest of the gang undecided



Well, I am still about, wandering aimlessly down the dark halls of prog land and the endless labyrinth that is called pleasure. And no, I don't have a cake tin on my head! Though Nikki could well end up with one on hers after her rather uncalled for comments on my youthful mishaps. It's not funny, you know, having your brain affected like that at such a young age. (I think I was about eight or nine.)
Anyway, back to TFK. A rather tenuous link, I know, but I received a new cd today from Amazon - The Tangent - The Music That Died Alone.
I haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I bought it after reading all the good reviews for it, and because it has Roine, Jonas and Zoltan on it. Can't be anything less than decent, can it?
Am waiting for my second cd to arrive, and that is - The Tangent - The World That We Drive Through.
Must say, I love Ed Unitsky's covers. They are really evocative and colourful.
Of course, the music is the most important thing, every time, but I do think the art work is also an important aspect. The whole package should be pleasing to both ear and eye, imo. And TFK's never fail to please, nor Transatlantic's, and now The Tangent's too.
Happy days! Guess what I will be playing tomorrow! grin

Alright Nov!

Rosie will love it! Hope so anyway as i bid for the Kim Poor Mad Man Moon print earlier today, which she bid for too, so hope havn't pissed her off! She posted a very ferocious looking beast in reply!!! wink

Am in Wales right now! Great!
Carl has gone to get his cake tin taken off his head again! (10 things thread!)X


Well, that really takes the biscuit (or cake), fancy splashing that news all over the front pages of a respectable online journal 'like wot this is'.
Really, madam, those days are passed when I did silly things like that!
Now I just do silly things like putting my slippers on the wrong feet when going to the bathroom (which is downstairs) and wondering what's wrong with my feet.
Oh yes, and losing my arms, like I did the other morning. (Don't ask!) shocked

Would you please post here (or start a Tangent thread) regarding what you think of theTangent albums?

I've got "A Place In The Queue" and just love it! It's refreshing plus has moments of 70s prog organ and flute.

As for the album artwork, APITQ is equally stunning. I got the SPECIAL EDITION with gatefold CD cover and bonus CD with more great Tangent music.

Err.......monopoly, tell me, darts, chess?

I dunno undecided

Let us know how you get on though.


The Tangent? I've got 2 of their albums (the 1st and 3rd ones) and the jury is still out for me at the moment. I bought the first one after all the hype and felt it was rather over-rated, especially because I bought "Keyholder" by Kaipa at the same time and I thought that was much better.

I've since bought "A Place In The Queue" and just need to find the time and commitment to play it and get used to it.

The ultimate female prog fans' fantasy eh? Brilliantly talented AND good-looking.

I mean, who have you had to drool over in the past? Steve Howe(?), Chris Squire(?), Geddy Lee(?) grin

Funnily enough, when you see the Flower Kings guys in the flesh (I chatted to them after the Rotherham gig), they do all seem very fit (i.e slim and healthy!) and have a real charisma and aura about them. Mind you, I suppose that could have been a result of me drinking several pints of real ale that night, finished off (literally) with a pint of cider coz the bar was almost dry.

Whatever - if I was a girl, I'd fancy them grin

Ok, now for the big, important question: not counting Hasse, which other two are gorgeous? And what's wrong with the remainder?
I suspect you are going to choose Marcus and maybe Tomas?

I also am interested, like Nov, in knowing your brother's taste in music. And how old is he?

That sounds great to me! It'll be the cider that did it, definitely!

Classical stuff plus Cat Stevens or whatever his bloody name is these days, oh yeah and that Corinne Bailey Rae bird. Now she is gorgeous, if i was a bloke i'd fancy her! Ha Ha! wink

Actually, I always thought, in a total non-sexual way of course, that Chris Squire, in his younger day, was quite a good looking lad.
Steve Howe, on the other hand....
I wonder if he has a portrait in the attic that is slowly improving with age, as opposed to Mr Howe himself, who obviously isn't!

Although I have only seen TFK on dvd, I would tend to agree that, even from a distance, they seem quite fit and athletic. Roine doesn't look his age at all. In fact, it would be great to see him and Geddy Lee do something musical together. Both have remained slim and agile, and creative, and I think there is only two years between them too! But who would be the drummer? And keyboard player? grin

Correct! Go to the top of the TFK class!
Absolutely nothing wrong with the remainder, just slightly less gorgeous than the others! laugh

Well thank you for your honesty! I suppose I can always use my Tangent cds for coasters!
Actually, I just played the first track off the album a little earlier, and, on first listen, I was quietly impressed, so I think I might be happy after all. I agree that Keyholder is a wonderful album though.
'A Complex Work Of Art' has to be maybe my favourite Kaipa track. Superb musicianship and a truly astonishing vocal display from Aleena. The ending gets me every time!

Please don't let me put you off chessman. Many people love these albums. I just haven't given them the time they deserve which is what I'm always moaning to people about when it comes to TFK wink

That is a stupendous track. I love the whole album to bits.

Will do, COT, and A Place In The Queue will be, presuming I like the first two albums, my next purchase. Hopefully the Special Edition, like you have! cheesy
