    [quote author=“bweels”][quote author=“JVarner”](such as Machine Messiah, off Drama)

    Drama is one of my favorite Yes albums. It’s an odd one in the sense that that particular band line-up (with Trevor Horn and Geoff Downs having replaced Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman) only recorded that one album. Incidently, I saw them on that tour. Machine Messiah is a great song! smile

    Yes has had so many rearrangements that it’s hard to remember which is which. smile I’d never heard anything off Drama, but I like what I’ve heard so far. Glad to find a fellow fan. How are their recent albums, if you have them? The latest I’ve heard are Talk and Union, both of which I like.

    Mine? Well it would be The Supernatural Anaesthetist by Genesis from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

    The only Genesis album I’ve heard is We Can’t Dance which I also enjoy. It seems to be “socially-conscious rock”. Plus, it has a good sound.

    Wonderful to know someone has the same tastes in music that I do. smile

    Right now: MIchelle Tumes (a recent Christian artist), album Listen, her debut.

    With both of these bands, I’m much more familiar with the older stuff. Drama is actually the newest Yes album I own! Same with Genesis. My collection stops at And Then There Were Three… from 1978. Beyond that and Phil Collins started taking the band more mainstream, and they lost something special. Or maybe I just resisted change. smile Their best work, IMHO, were the three albums following Peter Gabriel’s departure (A Trick of the Tale, Wind and Wuthering, And Then There Were Three…). They were still greatly influenced by him, but were able to pull away from the outer creative fringe and produce some gorgeous stuff.

    I’ve only heard a couple songs, but I like what I’ve heard. A little bit Enya-esque almost.


    Right now iTunes is playing Lily of the Midnight Sky by Bruce Cockburn from World of Wonders.

    It depends on what you look at, obviously,

    Tonic - Flower Man (from the X-Files movie album—not the score, but the other one smile)

    Still doing completely random iTunes songs: now listening to Can-Utility and the Coastliners from Genesis, from the album Foxtrot in 1972.

    I like exploring the possibilities on the iTunes radio stations. Right now I’m listening to British Blues Radio, which has played great tunes without too many repeats (and no ads of course!)

    Great Brazilian Samba music, and an ideal way to kick off the day…
