Sylvan?  rom


Rata Blanca - "Cuando la laz oscurece" - seneca

425

Rata Blanca from seneca is right; Sylvan is not.

Okay I'm just gonna toss some impressions out there and see what you make of those. I'm hoping to have results tomorrow or Friday at latest.


Not sure this is going to be the song to get me off the fence about this band, but this might be the best performance I've heard from the singer.

I guess this is an... interesting mix of two styles of music, but the way one of them is used in this mixture does not work for me. Which puts me in a difficult position, since I find other parts of this song quite appealing.

Great chorus in this one; both catchy and emotional.

Hmm, I'm not really keen on the riffs in this one.

I like the sound of this, but didn't hear anything striking in the song itself on first listen.

A lot of impressive guitar parts

Initial impression is that this feels disjointed, but there are some interesting parts, and maybe I'll make sense of the structure on subsequent listens.

This has all the feeling of an impressively constructed epic piece of music in a relatively short package.

I didn't really know what to expect, but I was really touched by this song. Very moving piece.

I'm worried this might be the kind of prog that I just listen to and find pleasant but largely uninteresting.

Any of these?

Hope our guy is doing okay. Anyone have any insight? His profile says he hasn't been active in more than a week.

Well, at least we know he ain't dead (he logged in the day of Portnoy's return), but is still AWOL.  Ironically (or not), this is a the second roulette in a row he's abandoned his own roulette.

There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again.

Yup. You can abandon two more and still be tied with 425.

Once is an event, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend.

As far as roulette's go .... Bolsters should swing the banhammer

You had very good cause, and explained your reasons.  Total pro.

Wasn't the first one because his GF suddenly passed?  That's tragic and completely understandable.  These last two though...the previous one was cryptic, and not a word this time.
