sorry for the late confirmation on this.  I appreciate the open invite.  Worked is slammed at the moment, which is good - hopefully they keep me around at this one.

I am also continuing my unfortunate tradition of dropping negative personal news into someone else's roulette.  We found out this past week my mom has glioblastoma which is a very aggressive form of brain cancer.  So I'll do what I can to send some entries, but I may be gone for a bit as we are trying to figure out when we can get home to see her.  I likely won't be as responsive as normal, but if I am holding anything up, just move on - it won't hurt my feelings at all.

What does Reddit have to do with this forum? Disclaimer, I don't know anything about Reddit.

Hmm... I would say ADToE is great, there is a noticeable drop-off with DT12, and I like TA quite a bit, but can't quite put it in the "great" category.

I apologize for being snarky. You came out with a strong opinion and I came back with mine unnecessarily strong.

Oh, Reddit is kind of like a huge forum so I focused most of my social media energy there. Anyway, no worries - this is DTF, we know drama.

Definitely agree that DT12 was a huge drop-off. It’s because of that album that I no longer consider myself a fan per se.

That's kinda lame.

I hated TA but still love this band.

Are you really running a roulette if you still have time to listen to your own music?
My next roulette is definitely going to be an album roulette. And I have a few neat ideas for some of the rounds already running around in my head.

Dream Theater / Re: JR performing (and singing!) Beneath The Surface

Well, if they let Portnoy sing some awful vocals on a couple songs, it wouldn’t hurt to let Jordan try :lol

Seriously, though, I wish we got more JP backing vocals on DT albums. He’s really good at it.

Omg his backing vocals on the octavarium section of Schmedly annoys me so much.

This video is amazing. Had no idea Jordan can sing like that.

1. SHADES OF DEEP PURPLE (1968)

ROD EVANS - lead vocals
RITCHIE BLACKMORE - guitar
JON LORD - organ, backing vocals
NICK SIMPER - bass, backing vocals
IAN PAICE - drums

Shades of Deep Purple is the debut studio album by Deep Purple, released in July 1968 on Tetragrammaton in the United States and in September 1968 on Parlophone in the United Kingdom. The band, initially called Roundabout, was the idea of former Searchers drummer Chris Curtis, who recruited Jon Lord and Ritchie Blackmore before leaving the project. The Mk. I line-up of the band was completed by vocalist/frontman Rod Evans, along with bassist Nick Simper and drummer Ian Paice, in March 1968.

After about two months of rehearsals, Shades of Deep Purple was recorded in only three days in May 1968 and contains four original songs and four covers, thoroughly rearranged to include classical interludes and sound more psychedelic. Stylistically the music is close to psychedelic rock and progressive rock, two genres with an ever-growing audience in the late 1960s.

And The Address - 0 (0%)
Hush - 0 (0%)
Prelude: Happiness / I'm So Glad - 4 (80%)

General Discussion / Re: Official 2017-2018 NHL Thread v. Break the Ice

Honestly, I don't think there is such a thing as "taking care of business at home" in the NHL playoffs.  Home ice means absolutely nothing in the NHL playoffs, as we are seeing once again. Home teams are 20-18 in these playoffs.

That aside, I get your sentiment.  :biggrin:

I doubt Kattoe has a single album that short.   :lol
