Anyone else around here remember these guys? One of them (Juan I believe) used to be active over at the MP forum and I remember thinking their sound was really cool. Itís been a long time but they just announced a new album. Single herein:

wow, yeah that's a blast from the past!

I will always think of them from their cover of Bravado around 9/11 with the samples.

Yeah, I'll have to check out the new music for sure!

Their cover was actually the first time I ever heard Bravado, which has since become one of my favorite Rush songs.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I got Paradigm Blue's debut Liquideyes when it came out in 2001. That was very early in my education into prog, but I loved it, and even on recent listens I think it holds up pretty well.

Who would have thought that 20 years later, we'd finally get a second album? That's the most pleasant surprise of an album announcement for me in a long time -- even with LTE3 on the way too. :biggrin:

"Transist" coming in the Spring.

"The Optimist" is up, pretty good tune. I was 1st feeling like it sounded a bit dated, with the vocalist almost sounding like Trent Gardner, but overall it sounds fresh enough I'm going to listen more.

also just revisiting the Bravado cover again, man, that does hold up. It's 1 of the best Rush covers I've ever heard, as it used to and still does bring me to tears.

Awesome that this is the thread that pulled you out of lurk mode!
