It is not necessary to post as to why you voted the way you did, but it would be interesting to the rest of us.

Note - There are 2 threads to this poll

Note - For your vote to be counted, you must check the box at the top of the thread. By just making a post to comment on your selection will not include that selection in the poll.

Note - The albums Keys To Ascension and Keys To Ascension 2 contain both live tracks from previous albums and new tracks, therefore they have been included in this poll. Normally I do not include live albums.

#3
In times past I was referred to as the Sound Chaser, as I travelled through the Gates Of Delirium, in my quest To Be Over you.

#4
Yes ......I am pleased that you relayer(ed) that to us :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
Nice to be able to go back to trust and friendship!!!!!!!!!

It's a mixed up sensation this being alive
Oh! it wears a man down into the ground
It's the strangest elation
I can't describe it
Oh it leaves a man weary
It makes a man frown.
.............................Chris Simpson ( "Mixed Up Sensations" 1975 Martin's Cafe )

Close to The Edge IMHO.

Full-blown Prog, but with less of the overblown nonsense that characterised the next few albums, and before they turned mainstream & bland.
#6
DRAMA

This was my first exposure to the band; I had an older sister who was really into the band and I swiped this album to listen to. Immediately "White Car" struck me as amazing in it's simplicity, while "Into the Lens" instigated my love of prog.

This is STILL a great album.
