Sons Of Appollo ~ MMXX

  Another great one from Sons Of Appollo. Starting off with a song over 7 minutes long, that starts off very slow & melodic, and then blisters into what you would expect from Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, … Continue reading

Dream Theater ~ Distance Over Time

  Another fine album from Dream Theater. This one is not a concept album like the previous one. The band sounds fine, as always, but there doesn’t seem to be anything new to the Dream Theater sound. That’s OK, as … Continue reading
