  1. Good for Portnoy. Transatlantic is more of a jazzy progressive rock sound and I prefer the harder edge progressive rock. They're good though.

    1. Alex- If you've never heard the Whirlwind album, give it a listen-I thought it had a lot more edge than the first two.

      And if you live close enough to see one of the few US shows-they are awesome live. I saw the LA show on the Whirlwind tour and it was well worth the trip to LA. I'm doing the cruise, so will see them there....may still go to the LA show.

  2. I'm looking forward to this album. What I'm not looking forward to? Them not touring here. In fact, the thing that sucks most about having the musical tastes that I do is that almost any band I like, if they DO tour in America, usually only hits New York, LA, and Chicago. Blah.

    1. Bryan- at the last LA show, there was a foursome of guys from a Colorado Progressive music society (who also had a band, Singularity). I made the trip from Phoenix-well worth it.

      I am on the fence about the LA show since I booked the cruise...but looking forward to this.

      Prog bands seem to just hit the two coasts and maybe Chicago. And even then, they do not sell out.

  3. What? No Downey stop scheduled?

    Sounds like they're doing some interesting things. I've been hearing about these rock cruises lately. Another sign of a generation getting older and more prosperous (or willing to spend money they don't have).

    Tossing It Out

    1. The El Segundo show is being put on by CalProg, so I guess they could not book the Downey theater.

      I never have been on a cruise, so I figured I'd do this one.

      Sadly, prog rock mostly attracts men, so there won't be much eye candy on the ship...

  4. I just realized that I need to start a progressive rock band so I can travel to fabulous places.

    1. You may be onto something-the latest trend does seem to have bands fronted by leather clad lady singers....hoe do you think a Goth look would work for you?
