Yeah, that's cool, I just submitted my late review of The Gathering to Blabbermouth. It's something that I struggled with to generate my thoughts for until I spun it a number of times. I like it and yet I'm waiting to see what identity they want to take from this point forward. There's a few moments of sheer brilliance and others where I think they want to do something between The Cranberries, Zero 7 and Ivy.

How's the Pinnick Gales Pridgen project? I was very excited to see that come about.

I definitely think "Disclosure" is much more immediately likeable than "The West Pole". I think I've always tried to enjoy The Gathering without thinking about it too much.

I think the Pinnick Gales Pridgen project turned out pretty much the way I thought it would. It's solid - not spectacular. You can't go wrong with Doug's vocals, Gales shines with his blues/Hendrix-rock hybrid, and Pridgen is great on drums. There's enough melody and "prog"-type influences so it isn't boring. Defintely worth having in the collection if you like blues influence rock.
