Cor was LTE 3 this year? It is good yes, amazing Tony Levin can keep up. The Rhapsody in Blue studio version is just superb though.

New Dream Theater behhhh mfffnlllllzzzz, mehh. it's fine I guess. Distance Over Time was ok too but the title always made me think of Adam & Joe's hoedown. The Astonishing really was though: astonishingly shit!!!!!!!!!

I know back in the 00s mentioning Dream Theater would get you pillioried with turds for being a poser nerd but I do maintain in the 90s they were truly progressive and did some really amazing stuff unlike anyone else was doing. still dont have the balls to start a DT thread here though lol

also on Tony Levin, King Crimson dropped a 2021 live album last week, and it's fucking brilliant

Was that the gig at Satan's Hollow? That was my last pre-Covid gig and it was a belter!

Small venue out in California called Holy Diver, kind of cozy. Were they still with Bent Knee when you saw them?

Totally with you, this might be the first time I've mentioned them on any forum without being yelled at or having my sexual orientation called into question.

Actually, towards the end of high school I would check out the DT forum and it was like going on safari. This was around when Portnoy left, and everyone was fucking insane. When Portnoy sued the band, it was a 300 page thread and someone made a horrifically long post about what an injustice it was that "Rudess - purest beautiful soul, mind like a diamond - is listed as a DEFENDANT?" and the best one was some guy whose username was like KickassDrummer85 who said, without irony, "Yeah my daughter goes to the same school as Portnoy's kid and next time I see him picking up his son I'm telling this sick fuck what a piece of shit I think he is in front of both of our kids!" And the forum regulars all went, "Yeah, you fuckin tell him Rick!"

Lads I love Dream Theater and if that thread goes up, there'll be at least three of us in there.
