Guess I'll have to give it a listen but up to this point, I prefer his older stuff. Generally though, I've found the first (or at least early) albums put out by artists are more about the music and less about the $$. Sadly, it usually reverses at some point, probably due to the record companies insistance. Smiley Sad


 

I will grant you that quite often, that does happen....sadly enough.

 

One thing about Flying In a Blue Dream that I found was, Joe really shouldn't sing....lol.  I can handle "The Phone Call", because of how processed the voice is,  but the other songs, he barely sings better than me!Smiley Surprised


 

That's the cool thing about music....there really isn't any 'right' or 'wrong'; just a matter of likes and dislikes.  Personally, I've never ever cared too much for Satriani....the only place where I find him the least bit entertaining is in "Chickenfoot"....


Many talented musicians simply can't make good albums (my opinion only) or they make lousy bandleaders.  But that's what makes the world go 'round...differing tastes.

Review

by Robert Taylor
The rise of goth/prog metal seemed to reach a peak at the turn of the century, with an endless supply of bands offering their own spin on the subgenre. Only a handful of these bands seem to have anything interesting or unique to offer, namely Lacuna Coil, Lana Lane, the Gathering, and After Forever, among selected others. With the release of Mother Earth, there was little doubt that the cream of the crop had indeed risen to the top. They refined their approach to feature lead vocalist Sharon den Adel and dumped the growling death metal-style vocals that typify this form of music. The single "Ice Queen" reached number one in both the Netherlands and Belgium and the album itself went gold. Another single, "Our Farewell," was also released to moderate success. Their music features Celtic and folk influences that contribute to a mature and confident sound that their contemporaries seem to struggle with. Den Adel has that elusive and intangible presence that a great band needs to have from their leader, especially on the live stage. A landmark release that set new standards for creativity, musicianship, and taste -- not just for goth/prog metal, but for any style of music. This was easily one of the best releases of 2001.

When Pink Floyd's "The Wall" first was released, I thought it was complete and utter garbage.  Now, after many years, while I still don't think it's particularly good; at least I don't run out of the room screaming with my fingers plugging my ears.  Played it again last night.... the first time in about a decade.  I will probably wait another decade to put it on again.

So, what do you prefer?  I personally prefer their older stuff than "The Wall."  A personal favorite is "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" and "Careful With That Axe, Eugene."

I always liked "Animals" and thought it never got the attention it was due.....everyone talked about Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You were Here, and the Wall the most, but I've always listened to Animals more than the Wall. The earlier stuff is occasional listening only these days, now that I am no longer polluting my body with fun stuff anymore.Smiley Wink

Anything other than "The Wall" is decent enough.... Not my favorite band by any means, but still worth a spin from time to time.
