    #Backdrifter: Before And After Science is definitely a good call here.

    #Foxfeeder: speaking of Al Stewart, I would also think of Year Of The Cat. I also have that Rainbirds album you mentioned. They did that one album and disappeared into the ether after that. Another perfect album by a German band would be Rockpommel`s Land by Grobschnitt.

    great thread by the way.

    I got a new iMac a couple of months ago. Before I transferred all data from the old one to the new one I deleted around one hundred albums from the iTunes library. Those, I never listened to or listened to one time and that years ago. That was my approach to that issue.8)

    I am quite a fan of Pain of Salvation. Be is an album I never got into…

    petros is the Greek word for stone. Ichor is Greek for blood of the gods. Petrichor describes the smell of wet stone after the rain. The smell is caused by biological pheremones that sink into the stone and reveal their smell when the stone gets moist.

    I don`t think, that there is any other band whose solo projects occupy me as much as the solo projects of the Genesis members.

    Peter Gabriel:

    Got all his regular albums. The ones I play the most are I - IV and So.

    Phil Collins:

    Got all his regular albums. The ones I play the most are the albums he released in the eighties.

    Mike Rutherford:

    Small Creep`s Day is prog classic. Acting Very Strange is odd, but still nice.

    Mike And The Mechanics:

    I don`t have all albums. I love the first two and lost interest somehow after Word Of Mouth. The new line-up brought me back to the band.

    Steve Hackett:

    Difficult. Love him, when he does the odd Genesis alike song. Not so keen on most of his other stuff. His Genesis Revisited releases are a pleasure. Some of his renditions beat the original. Especially Afterglow.

    Tony Banks:

    Great. Love him to bits. Not his classical stuff, though. Don't listen to classical music at all from no artist.

    Anthony Phillips:

    Love him, love him, love him. Watch my username and avatar picture.

    We are around 120miles South of Skagen. We will go there for a day trip next week. And yes, the Danish are a very friendly people. They are said to be the happiest people in Europe.

    Christian, aren`t you melting away in the South European furnace right now?

    I am in Denmark right now for three weeks. We are at the West Coast boarding at a holiday house in the dunes. The weather is quite cold but mostly fine. We did long trips with the bike across the fantastic dune landscape and visited the lovely little towns all around. Weather permitted a bath in the North Sea on two days so far. Wifey is still waiting for a SUP trip on the firth once the permanent wind goes down a bit.
