The rest of the cd is not as good as the songs "More than This" and "Avalon". Mad


Agree with that. I have that album on SACD and it is one of the best mixes that takes full advantage of surround sound.


What's wrong with "Take a Chance with Me"?

Very cool site IB. I'm waiting on D-Link to ship their new dual N band wireless media adapter as it can stream HD video, BUT it also has built-in internet radio capability and this would be a good one to use. Although I'm a little afraid to listen to highly compressed audio on serious equipment.
"The Ultimate Alan Parsons Project" cd.
Made me remember just how influenced I was in my youth by their "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" album.

By the by, can anyone name an artist who has put out a "theme" album recently? I'm not talking about a love-song compilation or anything like that. TM&I was centered around the works of Edgar Allen Poe.
Is this something relegated to the '70's?

Good question, I can name a few from the 60's & 70's, but am drawing a blank for anything new.

Not quite like the works of Edgar Allen Poe, but Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon was an epic (which I consider a theme), Moody Blues' Days of Future Past and I read in an article that Jack White claims his Elephant album has revolves around a theme of the death of a sweetheart, but in a political sense Confused here, but I wouldn't put too much credence in what he says. Besides, it doesn't sound like it has a theme, so it's probably not what you were looking for anyways.

The Crane Wife by The Decemberists.

Concept albums were definitely more common in the '60s and 70s. The Kinks were the probably the most prolific with them.
