I didn't see them in the OP, is the OP accurate?
Of course it's accurate.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

PT was sort of done a while back in the main PT thread, I think, but it was kind of disguised as a "let's talk about each album in order" discussion. Clever. :lol :lol

The thread for official band threads isn't accurate so I figured I'd ask.

I don't know if there would be any interest in a Pain of Salvation discussion thread at the moment, but I could start it whenever one the previous threads has finished. (Though it's probably a good idea to postpone it until I return from my holidays in august.)
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

As I recall, there was at one point a rabid following here.  I think it's a good idea, but yeah, if you already know about a time away, you may want to wait until then.

I'm not sure how much it matters, but I finally finished going back over my discographies and updating links to all the album covers and other images.  Basically, I was using Facebook as a poor-man's Imgur, but Facebook apparently changes the links every once in a while, probably to prevent people from doing what I was doing, so most of the links were broken.

I ended up re-reading a lot of them, and the ensuing discussions.  Holy shit, I write a lot!

Anyway, I think I got them all, and now I feel better about life in general. :)

Well, that's the Mars Volta discography thread over with. It took a worryingly long time, so in future, I'll only take up the task of a discography thread when I have lots of free time AND reliable internet.

Free time with an upcoming half term approaches me. If there's any interest, I've been listening to a lot of Van der Graaf Generator recently. I can do that over the coming weeks if anyone wants it. It won't end up like the Mars Volta one. I promise.

OK, we have one thread recently completed (Spock's Beard), one I think is close to being done (Savatage), and one which may last forever (Frank Zappa).

Anyone else ready to jump on a new one?  Or maybe wait until after the holidays?

In th coming weeks, I want to start a Neal Morse Discography thread, off the heals of my Survivor. It'll also be nice to have one after the SB thread. If there's a lot of support for the discussion, I'll start it sooner.

I can do a Rick Wakeman one, if people would like to see that. Would probably start middle of next week if people are interested.

Yeah and I have a lot of free time coming up. I wouldn't necessarily say I'll do every single Rick album ever in the history of Wakeman, (i.e. the collaborations and stuff with Strawbs and stuff pre-musical noteworthiness) but I'd certainty do the main body of his work.

Is anyone on the hook for a Gentle Giant discography?  They're another band I've been listening to forever, and I didn't see them in the OP list.  I could probably do one.

That would be interesting.  I am (sadly) not very familiar with them, so it would be an interesting read, and a good introduction, I'm sure.

Other classic bands that would be neat to see covered would be Camel or Caravan.

They (Gentle Giant) are on my "to-listen-to-sometime-in-the-future" list, as I've heard a lot of good things. Maybe such a thread could help in moving them further up my list.

And then, an Orbert discography thread is always worth reading.

I would be excited to explore Gentle Giant both because I've always wanted to get deeper into their discography and because I love reading Orbert's posts.

Just got a request from OnTheBacksofAngela for her and Train of Naught to lead an Avenged Sevenfold discussion.  Also added Orbert to do the GG discussion.  Since there are only a couple underway (and Savatage is finishing up), anyone on the list can go at anytime.
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.

people on this board are actual music fans who developed taste in music and not casual listeners who are following current fashion trends and listening to only current commercial hits.
