    First time Portnoy and Rudess have shared the stage since MP left Dream Theater.

    Observations:
    - Close to the Edge is amazing top to bottom but I actually got into it from bottom to top. It flows better imo.
    - I can't pick which Tale (or which Topographic Ocean?) I like best. What a monument. Or four monuments.
    - "Awaken." No other words necessary.
    - The Light is an incredible work. The title track alone is just perfection.
    - I had gotten into the newer SB via the insanely catchy "Edge of the In Between," but the earlier stuff is the mindblower material.
    - "At the End of the Day." Again. Nothing else necessary to say.
    - "Crack the Big Sky" as well. Marvelous.
    Just curious, are you still into SB? I'm getting back into the Neal stuff in a big way lately. I'm listening to a recording of a show they did on the Kindness Of Strangers tour and just a few minutes into any of those songs you can tell how well-oiled a machine they were on the road, with energy and charisma to spare. The tag of being kind of a throwback to Genesis or Yes maybe hampered their reputation as a live band, but man were they on fire.

    Shadowfax (who i've always put more into the jazz category, i guess?) have been putting a bunch of previously unreleased stuff up on streaming services over the last month or two. three live albums and a "lost years" compilation. lost years is super proggy and really, really good. sounds more like frank zappa than shadowfax but i'm totally fine with that.

    Watched this earlier in the week. A really mammoth performance all around, doing justice to his and his old band's music. This piece and "Shadow Of The Hierophant" from his first solo album really stand out for me.
