Anderson Ponty Band

Some of it is really good, in fact when I started listening I was well impressed as it seemed really vital next to some of the stuff he has released (I must have practically every one of his solo albums and some of the CDs released for the abandoned box set can be a little hit and miss), there's some new songs that are great and some new twists to older songs, some work some don't. Jon Anderson's voice in parts sounds a little fragile (geddit?) but not off putting. At the moment I'd say a solid 3 and a half stars out of five. When it's good it's really, really good but parts of it let the side down a bit mainly som eof the Yes versions...but maybe I'm being a bit close minded towards them. Having said that I need to give it a really good listen, not had a chance to watch the DVD yet.

Yeah it is good, listened to it a few times more now and I'll bump it up to 4/5 .... My problem is that I'm so used to hearing some songs performed a certain way that it sometimes jars me hearing them differently and I end up comparing them to the originals. I should get over myself for doing this ... but it's bloody hard :D

I know what you mean. Especially at live performances, when they don't play the song, or sing the words, or hit the notes exactly as recorded on the album, it bugs me. It doesn't help that I didn't grow up with this music, and so many of these bands I've heard their albums hundreds of times before I finally got the chance to see them live... 20+ years after said albums were recorded.

    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud. 
    • Titties not kitties. 
    • 1 of many current obsessions. Something about a girl so pale she is almost translucent
    • Chris DeGarmo gets it. If you own the "Empire" CD, check out how DeGarmo is singled out in the artwork with his index finger to his lips in the "Shoosh" gesture. I'm surprised Geoff Tate's ego was okay with that. It's no surprise that when DeGarmo left Queensryche they lost "it".     
    • The Aussies right, this is against the rules, this is a no crossover thread
    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
