How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?
How many CDs or recordings have your purchased as a direct result of listening to Aural Moon?

KeithieW 05-11-2003 05:00 AM

Cds purchased as a result of 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:

Bob Lentil 05-11-2003 12:15 PM

I've picked up the following:

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

Avian 05-11-2003 02:07 PM

That's odd Keith. Then again, you have bad luck when it comes to us! :[)

Bob - did you vote in the poll above, BTW (want to make sure everyone's votes are counted).


Bob Lentil 05-11-2003 03:49 PM

Yes, I did.

dinosaur 05-11-2003 05:20 PM

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

zvinki 05-12-2003 06:51 AM

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

Josephus 05-12-2003 02:53 PM

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 05-13-2003 12:13 AM

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!

black max 05-13-2003 12:23 PM

I voted 1-5, but the number would be a lot higher if I had the bux.

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.

odoggy 05-13-2003 02:08 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

black max 05-14-2003 10:57 AM

>>>I miss audiogalaxy.

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.

CCPlatt 05-17-2003 08:25 PM

> should the RIAA!<
"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)

KeithieW 05-21-2003 08:49 PM

Interesting poll.

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 01:26 PM

CD cascade
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 01:41 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!

byzantium 05-28-2003 08:49 PM

I think we will see a reissue of the Änglagård albums in connection with their reunion this summer.

Bob Lentil 06-03-2003 11:36 PM

I picked up my copy of Hybris on eBay. It shows up every couple weeks.

spedblavio 06-05-2003 01:08 PM

so far:

Canarios - Ciclos
Harmonium - Si On Avait Besoin d’une Cinquième Saison

Naminanu 06-11-2003 04:39 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 10:02 PM

Crucible / Iluvatar
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 09:39 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 06-12-2003 02:32 PM

as usual...
Very helpful.

Thanks Jim!

Naminanu 06-13-2003 12:06 PM

Re Crucible/Galleon
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 01:19 PM

Mind Over Matter
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 ( ).

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 07:08 PM

Purchased CD's...
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 10:44 AM

A couple more acquisitions resulting from stuff heard on AM:

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

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

ÄlveKatt 06-27-2003 05:29 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 01:30 PM

Poor but happy
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 02:11 PM

Now that's some unorthodox behavior!

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

KeithieW 06-27-2003 02:29 PM

Frankie G.
Hi Rick,

Yes I did and i've played it nearly every day since 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 03:49 PM

On a Roll or what????
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 I clicked and it's on it's way.

Damn, Damn, Damn.
:D :D :D

ÄlveKatt 07-10-2003 06:57 AM

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 10:17 AM

2 cd's
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 06:48 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 01:37 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.

KeithieW 08-16-2003 06:03 AM

Still buying!!!!
Now up to 35 albums via AM.

That rates at about 3 a month. Not that I'm complaining but my wife is!!!!:D

jsoques 08-22-2003 02:12 PM
