@Trollheart, i enjoyed the gilmouresque leads and many of the soundscapes that underlied them, didn't mean it as a negative.

I enjoyed listening to Tower of Silence, but when I started writing about the album, it came out negatively, largely because of the Floyd influences (which are a double-edged sword). I also wrote a lot, making it more like a review (it was the only way I could write it at all). I attempted to post a draft here, but as I was not entirely happy with my own comments and as you prefer not to have reviews, it will probably be better in my journal - if I get it finished.

Australian bands are interesting when they play in a British/American style, because they are geographically 'isolated' and introduce an added 'dimension' for the want of better words.

Thanks guys, but nobody should worry about offending me or disagreeing with my opinion of an album. After all, I've had very diverse opinions on the albums others have lauded here. Also, if you want to do a review you can; there's no problem. I just thought a discussion-based thread would get more participation, and put less pressure on people. Oddly, it seems you've all gone the other way and written up articles about the album. Well, whatever works I guess.

That's a benefit of the discussion style, you can do either

I have posted my review in my journal (should anyone be sufficiently interested to visit), as it is probably too verbose for this thread.

It was not easy to write as I do not know Anubis very well, while the tracks have numerous parts and time signatures played on unexpected instruments. They are also peppered with Pink Floyd references, some of them cunningly diguised! As a result, my review came out more negatively than I intended. The last thing I would want to do is project a negative aura on an Australian progressive rock band.
