Second Postings Are Always Difficult!

OK, that first posting loaded fine so getting the hang of this.

To start things off here is my list for best albums of this year, so far. I expect this will change a bit as there are a few interesting releases coming up in the next month or so. It’s that time of year again. The pre-Christmas release schedule kicks in just about now. Of course the most anticipated album of the year surely must be Aerial by Kate Bush on 7th November.

I heard the single playing in the background in the machine shop at my work. It sounded pretty good!! Hounds Of Love is still my favourite of hers. Brings back so many memories of 1984!

But personally, most anticipated release is One Small Step… by Guy Manning. He is an extraordinary songwriter who has been making wonderful music for many years. He is also part of Andy Tillison’s The Tangent project which have made two excellent albums. But that’s another story. Guy’s new album should be out sometime this month.

Best Of Year (so far!):

Arena ~ Pepper's Ghost
Spock's Beard ~ Octane
The Mars Volta ~ Frances The Mute
Kino ~ Picture
Porcupine Tree ~ Deadwing
Lana Lane ~ Lady Macbeth
Dream Theater ~ Octavarium
Glass Hammer ~ The Incosolable Secret
Wobbler ~ Hinterland
Lands End ~ The Lower Depths
Opeth ~ Ghost Reveries

Is that Guy Manning who used to be in Jellyfish with Jason Falkner?

No, I think that is a different Guy Manning. More info can be found at:

He has worked with Andy Tillison in the very, very good prog group The Tangent which have a new album out in January called "A Place in the Queue"
