About Me
First and foremost I am a long time music fan with Rush having been my favorite band for almost 20 years now, followed closely by Yes.  Progressive rock tends to be the dominant style of music that I listen to, however, I am a fan of much classic rock and more straightforward rock bands and artists as well.  I suppose that I am a prog fan trapped in a pop fan's mind.  I am also a long time fan of metal but I have my limits and I am quite adverse to extreme metal and extreme metal vocals.  My musical achilles heel seems to be the heavy metal pop ballad, which I have always had a soft spot in my ear for, no matter how cheesy.  My ability to rate music is quite limited, however, I do give it the old college try and hopefully there is some sort of pattern or consistency that can be found amongst my reviews.

YesListen - Magnification 2001
9.5
Orchestral Prog Rock
This is an excellent album; even better than some of their classics. They miss Rick Wakeman, but the use of a whole symphony makes up for his absence. This is one of the few albums that I have heard using a symphony where the symphony sounds like part of the songs. It seems to me that symphonies usually just fill in intros and outros with little added extras throughout the song, but that is definitely not the case with this album.

Rush - 2112 1976
9.8
Heavy Prog Hard Rock
I am RushFan4 and this is RushAlbum4. Their first masterpiece. 2112 is the epic story to end all epic stories. The Necromancer and the Fountain of Lamneth were both excellent songs, but 2112 is awesome. Side 2 is also quite good, with Passage of Bangkok being one of my all time favorite Rush songs, and Tears being one of my favorite Rush unknown songs.
