    Hi, I've replied to your post in the forums (although probably not that helpful). You'd better remove your API key from the code otherwise the not-so-nice people might abuse it.

    I've started to listen to Van Der Graaf Generator. You're right... liked them stright away. I've just got Peter Hammill's solo stuff. Listening to 'Over' at the moment. It's pretty good. Can really see the Bowie connection.

    I agree many Pink Floyd albums have some weak songs - I actually prefer their pre Dark Side of the Moon albums more. Van der Graaf seem interesting, I'll check them out. Never heard much about the italian prog scene - just read about it - another bunch of albums to check out - don't think I'll get to it soon. It's funny you mentioned 80's synth. When I think about it, I really don't listen to it much anymore - probably only Depeche Mode, early Gary Numan. I tend to listen to more of the early influencers from the 70's or the 80's influenced modern groups such as Ladytron and The Knife. Most 80's stuff I listen to tends to fit into the dark wave genre - dead can dance, clan of xymox, sisters of mercy etc (though when I think about it depeche Mode and Numan prob fit into that genre too. I think my 'synth pop' phase is clearly over.

    Well I got as far as 'on the love beach, I'm gonna make love to you on the love beach...' - then I turned it off - so probably not a good idea :) I have listened to a fair bit of the prog bands like Pink Floyd, Genesis, ELP, Gentle Giant, Jethro Tull (don't take my listening totals too literally - I listen to a lot on Cd so obviously my plays don't get scrobbled). Out of all those bands I probably find Floyd / Gentle Giant even Brian Eno the most accessible. I'm actually really getting into the German prog rock scene from late 60's to mid 70's (or the Krautrock movement as the Brits termed it). Way more experimental and way influential on later ambient, electronic, industrial music - which is probably why I'm more drawn to it. You listened to any Can, Faust, Neu, Amon Duul, Ash ra Tempel, Tangerine Dream and early Kraftwerk? If not I've got some great albums to share with you when I get over to Canada.

    Marky Marky Mark, you must hear the Floating Me album! Lucius from Cog, Jon from Karnivool and 3 guys from Scarymother who sound like A more electronic version of The Tea Party... sooo good.

    Hey Mate, just to let you know I am listening to that Genesis compilation (having issues scrobbling my plays). Never thought I would see you listening to 80's genesis & Phil Collins!

    The new AIC is really good. Pretty much just a continuation of the sound of Degredation Trip. The new vocalist sounds eerily similar to Layne Staley at times, but it all works well enough to sound like classic AIC.

    You should forget the first two albums. Once they got Anneke van Giersbergen as the new vocalist they really came into their own. The first few albums from then on were goth / alternative metal (check out Mandylion and If Then Else). Their last two albums were more mellow alterantive rock (check out Home). Those three albums will give you a good idea of what they are like. Anneke is what makes The Gathering so good, she's an amazing vocalist.

    I've always intended to, never really got around to it. I have heard a few songs a while back, mixed impressions but not sure what era any of them were from. whats their best album/s?

    Hey Mark, You have to listen to The Gathering. They're amazing. I've been listening to them non stop for the past month.

    Hey mate, got an ipod. Now I'm in the middle of the massive project of ripping all my music cds. I'm still trying to get my head around this site but it shouldn't take too long. I see you eventually got around to Pink Floyd. Nice

    Demians were really good, thanks for that. Strange to hear a bit of pop-rock sound in amongst it, but it would make them a good gateway band to PT and others, for sure.
