I don't know about the review, but I did have to look up the word "ouroboros".

I only recently found out that Kotebel are based in Madrid and are on the cusp of releasing a new album.  See the preview here.

Just to make my post vaguely related to the thread.

About 10 years ago I began my return to prog after many years on a musical voyage of blues, jazz, jazz fusion, classical, folk, world, etc, etc.  At that time I kept hearing of this group called Dream Theatre, whom I'd never heard of before.  In a local shop they were selling the DVD of Scenes from a Memory cheap, so I bought it to see what all the fuss was about.

When I watched it then, my opinion was very similar to Simon's, admiring the skill but finding it full of technical wankery.  Since then, I have been listening to more heavier prog.  When this thread started I thought I'd dig it out again and have another watch/listen.  I find it a lot more listenable now than 10 years ago, but I still find it doesn't really elicit an emotional response from me and a lot of it seems to be technical wizardry for the sake of being technical wizardiness.

I confess I haven't heard the actual album, only the DVD concert, so I may be missing out on a revelation...

... but I doubt it.

That makes pandas 100% more useful than they are already.

Isn't that what Lister in Red Dwarf thinks his name is after finding it written on the side of the crate he was left in as a child.

I came to DT late with Systematic Chaos which blew me away then I went on a few months' DT binge and sickened myself lol! So coming back to this album I realise it's probably my favourite.

I am alwsys disappointed seeing them live, they are impossibly good musically but they seem to lack passion live, a big robotic. Let's see if tomorrow changes my mind.

After listening to this I went back to Haken's new one and actually 'got' it more than before... Odd.
