How many CDs or recordings have your purchased as a direct result of listening to Aural Moon?

KeithieW
05-11-2003, 04:00 AM
I've purchased over 10 CDs as a result of AM.

They include, 3 Utopia albums, Niacin, Greg Howard, Finisterre, Erik Norlander, Ryo Okumoto, Frank Gambale and a 3 of Ayreon's discs.

Fantastic stuff.

PS. I'd vote in the Poll but always get a message like this:

Richard Leo Johnson - Fingertip Ship
Liquid Tension Experiment - Liquid Tension Experiment 2
Pain of Salvation - The Perfect Element
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia

Flower Kings, Finnforest, Ten Jinn, Anglagard, Tony Levin, Steve Hackett, Ayreon...
and dozens more to come, old and new, as fiscal conditions permit.

DFA's Work in Progress - Live & Djam Karet's New Dark Age but so many more that I want.

I bought one: King Crimson's latest one (probably would have bought it anyways, but didn't know it was out until I heard it here.)

Rick and Roll
05-12-2003, 11:13 PM
I would buy many more if I had the $ and time to listen. The station is doing a fantastic job of getting the music out there.

DFA - that's a good pickup!

What he said.
So far i bought albums by Genesis, Arena and Spock's beard because of Aural moon. I have this textfile where i write down everything i like on aural moon for further checkup. It has alot of bandnames and records on it by now. And i will probably buy The rainmaker by The flower Kings in my next musicshopping spree. And more cds by Genesis.

I would probably prioratice that list more when i buy albums if it were easyer to find mp3s of this kind of music to testlisten it properly. I miss audiogalaxy.

05-13-2003, 01:08 PM
More than ten - 2 Transatlantic, 3 Triumvirat, 3 Spocks Beard, 2 Renaissance, 1 Focus, 2 IQ.

I love this station, as should the RIAA!:D

Try WinMX. It works fairly well, though not as good as Napster in its heyday, and best of all, it's free of spyware and adware.

"I love this station, as should the RIAA!"
(as per a previous post)
I'll second that emotion!

I've only been listening since March, and have bought three:
"The Power To Believe" (King Crimson)
"Red Queen To Gryphon Three" (Gryphon)
"Road Games" (Allan Holdsworth)

Avian,

I'm so glad to see that everyone who has replied to the poll has bought at least one album as a result of listening to AM.

Excellent result and it just goes to prove what I've always thought......Show YOUR enthusiasm to other people in the right way and it will rub off on them and make them think about something in a different light.

Are you listening to AM Mr Blair???????

Well you should!!!!!!!!!!!

JR42
05-26-2003, 12:26 PM
I have probably bought only 2 or 3 directly from listening to this station (I voted in the 1-5group).

Enjoying these, I have then gone on to buy more in a 'cascade' effect (e.g. I bought Transatlantic, this led me to try Spock's Beard and some of the newer Marillion). So some might argue that the figure is higher (10+ by now). It depends how strict you want 'directly' to apply.

All round, very healthy for the music industry as far as I am concerned (slightly less so for my pocket..).

Keep up the good work.

Gerd Knops
05-28-2003, 12:41 PM
I'd really like to get my hands on Anglagards album Hybris, but it does not appear to be available anywhere... A previous poster mentioned he bought it, where did you find it?

Anyhow, I just started listening to AM a few weeks ago, and absolutely love it. So much music I never heard before... Solely based on hearing it at AM I bought so far:

Transatlantic: SMPTe
Kaipa: Notes from the Past
Porcupine Tree: Signify
Spock's Beard: Snow
Flower Kings: Space Revolver
Flower Kings: Rainmaker
Tempus Fugit: Tales From A Forgotten World
Buckethead: Colma (the e-drums are annoying though)

There is a lot that I really like and probably will end up buying: IQ, Ten Jinn, Firemonkey, Xinema, Höyry-Kone just to name a few. Plus I will probably add to my collection of Genesis, Gabriel, King Crimson, Gentle Giant and others...

Keep it coming!

Naminanu
06-11-2003, 03:39 PM
I've bought about 5 directly, 3 indirectly, and 1 from another source.

2 Crucible (Excellent!!)
5 Galleon (You must add the other 3 albums!)
1 Spock's Beard
1 Iluvatar (indirect)

Err, this doesn't count the other Yes albums, a double
album tape of Kansas, and a host of other MP3's.....

Rick and Roll
06-11-2003, 09:02 PM
I have the first one - I know they have at least another on (Curtains?) - how is it?


Iluvatar is from my neck of the woods. If you do not have Children get that immediately. You will love it. The first one is also great. the third is pretty good.

Powerslave
06-12-2003, 08:39 AM
FYI Naminanu:

Galleon has four albums that are not available on the request list, not three. As a huge Galleon fan myself, I wanted to make sure you weren't missing one.

Lynx (1993)
Heritage & Visions (1994)
King Of Aragon (1995)
The All-European Hero (1996)
Mind Over Matter (1998) --my personal favorite
Beyond Dreams (2000)

The new 2-disc album will hopefully be completed and released this year.

BTW, I puchased all these albums after hearing them on AM.

Curtains is good but of a lesser light than Tall Tales. Worth getting, but not quite the equal of Tall Tales. I should say that I think Tall Tales is an EXCELLENT album, so "not quite the equal of" is still pretty good.

We have Curtains on AM, so you can listen to it and decide for yourself!

Rick and Roll

Very helpful.

Thanks Jim!

Naminanu
06-13-2003, 11:06 AM
Actually, I think I like the 2nd Crucible album better than the first. It took me a few listens to come to that
conclusion. The second album is closer to Genesis' Wind and Wuthering era. The only problem with the album is
that it is somewhat short time-wise.

I didn't realize that Galleon had another album called Mind over Matter. I don't recall seeing that on the Kinesis site.
Well, I guess this means that I'm one album short, and will need to make up for that!

Powerslave
06-16-2003, 12:19 PM
I think I got my copy from Kinesis; they don't always have a band's entire catalog in stock. If they aren't carrying it, try Syn-Phonic Music ( http://synphonic.8m.com/ ).

This is their "epic" album with the shortest track at around 8 minutes, 3 between 10 and 14 minutes and a 21-minute closer. Great stuff!

Scott Sloan
06-23-2003, 06:08 PM
I am a long-time listener to Prog Rock, but until I discovered AM, I didn't realize that PR was indeed alive and well. Not only have I bought a fairly impressive number of CD's, through the site's 'BUY' function, but I have discovered a host of new groups who now have an honored and permanent place on my iPod. And I will be seeing The Flower Kings live at the end of this week in NYC. I consider it a fortunate day when I discovered AM... (8^)>

spedblavio
06-24-2003, 09:44 AM
A couple more acquisitions resulting from stuff heard on AM:

Krakatoa's latest album "We Are the Rowboats"
and
their previous album "Togetherness" (which is not in the AM list, but I found a couple MP3's to listen to at www.etherdrag.com).

Both are available at ZNR, and "We Are the Rowboats" and shipping are cheaper there than Amazon.

ÄlveKatt
06-27-2003, 04:29 AM
I think i will buy Liquid Tension Experiment 2 this month because of AM. I probably will. Wich means i must borrow money from my parents and be on minus again.

Damn you AuralMoon! ;)

KeithieW
06-27-2003, 12:30 PM
Just taken delivery of the 25th album bought from listening to AM.

Not all have been CDs though. As a Vinyl Junkie I've tracked a few down in Record Fairs and second hand shops. For example I got hold of a couple of mint condition "Brand X" albums for the princely sum of £4.00 ($6.50).

Still on the look out for more..............

Rick and Roll
06-27-2003, 01:11 PM

Keith - did you ever get that Frank Gambale? If so, what do you think?

KeithieW
06-27-2003, 01:29 PM
Hi Rick,

Yes I did and i've played it nearly every day since it arrived.......it's great and thank you for the recommendation.

Don't know if you're listening but Hawkwind are on at the moment and I'm here having a Brainstorm listening to it......yes it was me that requested it!!!! I've just ordered Space Ritual Part 2 from amazon because of this damned station. I went to see Space Ritual when they played it in 1973 (I think) and it was literraly a HUGE BUZZ!!!

KeithieW
06-27-2003, 02:49 PM
Just heard Transatlantic "SMPTe" track and ordered it. I've heard it before but it really hit home today so I decided I had to have it...........so I clicked and it's on it's way.

Damn, Damn, Damn.

I ordered Liquid Tension Experiment. LTE2.

Now i have to wait. And mutter about the hole formed in my wallet. I ordered Flower Kings Rainmaker too. And Images and words by Dream Theater.

The two latter came today. :)

Rick and Roll
07-10-2003, 09:17 AM
Enjoy Images and Words, it's all downhill from there. They still are good, it's just that's they're most consistent effort.

There's a song on Rainmaker called "Serious Dreamers" that is the perfect union of Yes and Todd Rundgren. Great keyboard lines in the center of the song.

ÄlveKatt
07-11-2003, 05:48 AM
It's damn good. I have Awake and Six degress of inner turbulence too.

And i must say that i think Awake is at least equal to Images and words. (But that is my preference i gather.)

Rick and Roll
07-13-2003, 12:37 PM
I agree with that. Awake is very good.

I just got Focus 8, Snow, and A Night For Baku. Baku (Djam Karet) is incredible - another fine effort by these guys. The concept and execution are stellar.

Snow is basic Spock's Beard - good enough to own, but not outstanding. The Focus is very cool. Only Thijs left, but a nice, clean sound. Very tasteful.

everytime i hear something i like...or must have..click the buy...find it...click the artist for other albums, circle the one that brought me and clip it up on my cubicle wall. the list is thick and i've only made a small dent with regards to purchases.

spock's beard, transatlantic, porcupine tree, kaipa, flower kings, King Crimson, tangent

gotta satisfy my roine needs. i've given up my lunch money for these things. the upshot of that is lost pounds but musically satiated. :p

I have discovered many artists that I had heard of before but never got much of a chance to lsiten to. Due to the fact that Central NY stinks as far as Progressive Music goes, I have had to buy elsewhere and AM has helped in getting the resources to do so. Puchases so far, Lana Lane, Ayreon, Eric Norlander, OSI, Tangent, Iluvatar.....many more on the wish list that will have to wait until the wife cools down from the recent purchases.:p Long live the Moon.

I'm not sure if I should be proud or not, but I just recently purchased albums #11, 12, and 13 as a result of AM. Mrs. Lee is seriously wondering about my sanity. I simply remind her that she did, in fact, marry me. That usually ends the discussion in a hurry.

Anyway, amongst the list:


2x King Crimson
2x Triumvirate
1x Dixie Dregs (guess why?)
1x Ars Nova
1x Par Lindh Project
2x Tangerine Dream
1x Ryo Okumoto


Ah well, I didn't need that money anyway. And half.com is your friend!

As a result of listening to Aural Moon, I have purchased two King Crimson albums and one Bubblemath album. In addition, I've added countless albums to my wishlist, and have also downloaded some additional music off of the internet that was otherwise unreasonably difficult to get a hold of, such as Aardvark and some Kenso.

The problem now is I'm listening so much to AM I haven't any time to listen to CD's I have bought - I've 6 CD's waiting to be heard and 5 on order - all due to AM

Michael Rawdon
09-20-2004, 12:14 PM
Quite a few.

- Jadis, Understand (and then the rest of their stuff), after hearing "Is This Real"; this, combined with discovering Marillion's This Strange Engine, is what got me back into prog after a 10-year hiatus, so indirectly listening to this track on AM has caused me to buy dozens of prog CDs in the past few years.
- The Flower Kings, Space Revolver (and then the rest of their stuff), after hearing "I Am The Sun (Part One)" several times.
- Shadow Gallery, Legacy as a result of hearing "Colors" - turns out I didn't care for the rest of the album, which is more representative of their sound.
- Karnataka, Delicate Flame of Desire as a result of hearing "Heart of Stone". I now want to buy their first two albums, but they seem to only be available as imports (about US$50 from the band's Web site, somewhat more from Amazon).
- Ten Jinn, As On A Darkling Plain (I'm lukewarm towards this one)

I have several other artists on my "to check out" list as a result of AM, but haven't picked them up yet.

My other source of ideas is to just browse the recent arrivals at The Laser's Edge on-line store (http://www.lasercd.com/default.asp).

Hmm... can't remember or even check the exact amount at the moment, but I've bought over 10 albums/CDs more or less as a result of listening to this station.

The Hidden Step by Ozrics,
Moonmadness by Camel,
Oxygene 7-13 by Jarre,
Sands of Time by Deuter,
Tabula Rasa by Tabula Rasa

... just to name a few I obviously appreciate.

Perhaps I should also mention Oi Dai by the folk-group Värttinä. I haven't heard them here on the Moon, but the station, with some of this stuff that is played here, has definitely inspired my increasing interest in world and folk music.

Well, after the Moon brought me back to prog mote than a year ago, finding out, that prog still exists in the 21rst century with new, excellent bands, and, the most important, that gigs I attended are as excellent as they used to be 30 years ago, I invested a little money to buy some CD's (not as crazy as RogorMortis having to charge also to his wife paypal account.....:rolleyes: ).

Here the one I like most:

RPWL: all three CD's
The Tangent: Live in Aschaffenburg
Ray Wilson:Life
Little Atlas: Wanderlust
Lanvall: Auralmony
Peter Gabriel: Shaking The Tree
Ray Wilson: Live
Canarios: Ciclos (still not received, seems very rare)

OK, quick base review of the purchases. PT: Voyage 34....too "Trippy" and a bit dated in a corny sense of the word. PT: Lightbulb Sun: EXCELLENT!! PT: Sky Moves Sideways and Signify: Very Good....Still absorbing......can see them growing on me. Glass Hammer:Liked it right off, but it needs to grow on me a bit more. Still VERY Hung Up on THRESHOLD.

Yorks, I replied to your Pineapple Thief post on another thread. I don't check the threads, I just hit reply :notsure:

Since you like Porcupine Tree (Lightbulb Sun's my fave) and you like the Thief, have you tried Sigur Ros? Another band with similar threads.

http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/band/disco/agaetis.php

Agaetis Byrjun is an excellent CD they issued earlier. You can listen on the Moon, or go to the website and download "Olsen Olsen" to start...see what you think.

And, just to clear up any confusion...it's a male vocalist and it's all sung in Icelandic.

"Olsen olsen" is in sung in "Hopelandic", the artificial "language" the band invented for their music (interesting idea).

AB is a great. I found it through the Moon.

-> what language does jónsi sing in?


-Methem

Yesspaz
12-15-2005, 10:24 PM
For the record, it's not actually a language. Here's that FAQ copied/pasted:

what language does jónsi sing in?
on the first three albums (von, von brigði, ágætis byrjun), jónsi sang most songs in icelandic but two of them (von and olsen olsen) were sung in 'hopelandic'. all of the vocals ( ) are however in hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska in icelandic) is the 'invented language' in which jónsi sings before lyrics are written to the vocals. it's of course not an actual language by definition (no vocabulary, grammar, etc.), it's rather a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music and acts as another instrument. jónsi likens it with what singers sometimes do when they've decided on the melody but haven't written the lyrics yet. many languages were considered to be used on ( ), including english, but they decided on hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska) got its name from first song which jónsi sang it on, hope (von).

02-23-2006, 11:17 PM
What a great thread! Although I had to put myself in the 1-5 catagory, I'm sure this will grow. I had been away from AM since last summer, just a pain to have headphones on. But I am planning some monitors here shortly. Ironic that as I read this post, I was contemplating the 0 answer when they just played a cut off Quake by Den Fule. I IMMEDIATELY looked this up and will order ASAP! And wouldn't you know it, it's a Swedish band! For some reason, Sweden has been a great source of music!

Some recent purchases:

Forgas Band Phenomena -Soleil 12 (thanks to a sampler a friend sent me)
Miriodor- Parade + Live ( " )
Djam Karet ( " )
Permanent Vacation (found on CDBaby.com by search for "sounds like": Bruford)
Allan Holdsworth- Road games (cause it's got Jeff Berlin)
Allan Holdsworth- 16 Men of Tain (after seeing him live this month)
Lady Lake- Supercleananddreammachine (www.ladylake.nl)

And... because I was wondering about what ever happened to Eddie Jobson, I found this beauty: Voices of Life (http://www.globemusic.com/) Done by the Bulgarian Women's Choir. Want to hear something completely different? Here it is! These are mostly classical Bulgarian pieces, though there is a tune by Jobson and one by Tony Levin. THis has been one of my favorite new acquisitions...I love choral music, but I love Levin and Jobson, and with the Burgarian Womens' Choir, it's orgasmic to the ears! I wish they had more cuts like the two.

And how can I forget one of my most important discoveries, Bela Fleck! His Live at the Quick DVD is phenominal!

1)Djam Karet

2)Permanent Vacation (found on CDBaby.com by search for "sounds like": Bruford)

3)Allan Holdsworth- Road games (cause it's got Jeff Berlin)

4)Bulgarian Women's Choir.



1)Which one? The Devouring is my fav, but almost all are great.

2) Aerosmith?:)

3) Do you have "Players"? A find for me in college, I've played it on the show and it should be on the Moon. Berlin, T Lavitz, Scott henderson, and Steve Smith..

4) There's some tease of that on Kate Bush's "Sensual World"..gotta check that out...

02-24-2006, 03:02 PM
1) Ha! You got me on #1. I lent it to my friend, but I think the song I got it for was Indian Summer?

2) http://cdbaby.com/cd/permanent http://cdbaby.com/cd/permanent2

3) No, but after seeing him live I've decided I need to get anything with his fingerprints on it. I just ordered http://cdbaby.com/cd/riptyde

4) If you like choral music, you'll love it. But if you're looking for that Jobson sound, you will only get that on one track. I like them all. There's even about a minute of Brufford on the first track...just enough to say he was there too!

5) and of course, I need to recommend our collective work here as well (well, I DID buy a copy too ;-) ) http://cdbaby.com/cd/gianthour

Advent- Cantus Firmus (Great stuff with great vocals, Genesis, Gentle Giant influence)

Riptyde- Sonic Undertow (with Allan Holdsworth) (Interesting combination of hip hop style w/prog, Holdsworth makes it work)

I'm a bit mad at Salem Hill. Carl Groves, the driving force in the band, is having a couple over to visit in his Tennesee home the weekend I was going to visit the couple (I was to stop on the way back at their place in Virginia, as I was returning to Maryland, from Florida)...got all that!

Seriously, "Be" is even a better CD, and from a lyrical standpoint, you will like "Robbery of Murder".

Just bought 2 more because of my renewed interest in prog. spurred on by the Aural Moon experience. Bought a Gentle Giant DVD called "Giant on the Box". It's old TV shows of concerts and interviews. German, American, and
Italian TV from the early 70's. I never saw them live so this is a real treat for me. Also Bought Starcastle's new one, "Song of Times". Had heard about them but owned no music. It's good. I thought it only a yes clone at first, but they sound pretty proficient and the lyrics with some depth. By the way this thread is a great way of proving Aural Moons worth to artists and record sellers. For what it's worth. And how many CD's do we own, tapes, and LP's too, that we were forced to replace because of new technology? Enjoying the moon -pawpoet

I keep track of stuff I like then research it later. I typically don't judge an artist based on one song I hear on here that I like. If I like their sound or hear more than one track by them and then decide it floats my boat that's when I'll give them consideration. Otherwise there's just too much out there to chose from and I already have a million lists from many years of researching prog.
