  1. Well guys, after 12 months in lock down, border closures, sick parents and other delays, we have finally approached our departure day tomorrow for a 4 month trip into North Qld, then Arnhem Land in N.T. hoping to catch a Barra or 5. We had a Carafan fitted to the van which forces air out and which we are told is the only device to keep red dust out. Fingers crossed. We did a 15 month trip around the block in 2018-2019 and absolutely loved the whole experience but think this time around, with a 70% increase in caravan registrations, every man and his dog will also be on the road loo
  2. I used to own a mint copy of that record but I can no longer locate it Dave. This is even more tragic as I only recall playing it once so will have to look for a reissue.
  3. Have been returning to this excellent album by Comedy of Errors. The track, "Prelude, Riff & Fugue" is just so damned catchy with some truly excellent guitar that just hits that sweet spot. The album is called Disobey and is pretty highly rated on RYM at 3.61 / 5.00 so certainly not a wasted effort.
  4. That is a truly sublime album with no filler, all killer. When I first heard that song "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" I was really impressed with its subtle simplicity yet compelling allure. I still play this one regularly as the war office also likes it. Ironically, this band never went on to release anything nearly as good as their 2nd album despite having 9 main albums issued from 1993 to 2010
  5. For those that don't know this guy, Jordan Rudess is the keyboard maestro for Dream Theatre. If you play this whole clip all the way through and appreciate his immense talent, virtuosity and versatility, you'll also appreciate why he has become one of my favourite keyboard players of all time. There are literally no limits to what he can play and it shows incredibly well within the few minutes of this excellent clip Enjoy! This was also posted on the Youtube thread
  6. I feel you'll need a long toilet break on that night. Bring yer runners.....

  8. Nice one Steve! I would expect the guys on the prog thread would love to hear your thoughts on their new release/s, both initially and after a few spins. Over to you amigo!
  9. People often sadly malign Steve Vai as being too much of a shredder with no song writing talent. I have found a lot of his albums full of extremely well crafted songs, replete with melody, finesse and originality. Fire Garden is his best as far as I'm concerned although others are close.
  10. @cazzesman Here's my take on DGM. Very competent musicians who really hit their stride with the latter part of their career. Earlier albums showed promise but then never really developed more than an average level of quality, enjoyment or memorability. As shown, their best offerings are definitely the last 6 albums which is not often the norm as bands normally really shine for the earlier part of their careers, then taper off into mediocrity / oblivion. I still don't have their last 3 albums but will rectify that when time allows.
  11. Absolutely prog. And one of THE best to do it so well for so many great albums. Despite losing their way a little mid career, their latest album is a cracker.
  12. Well after finally synching my phone to the car via Android Auto, I have since found out that Hema Maps are not compatible with Apple Car Play or Android Auto so no maps would appear on the car's screen. Back to paper maps...... $@$#%$#&!
  13. TFTO is one of my all time favourite albums Gary. You couldn't have picked a better album to help me wash down dinner with a little glass or three of BarossaShiraz
