Man, it's amazing... I could see this becoming the best album of '03, no problem. Every once in a while it'll leave my cD player for a couple days, but when it comes back in I'm blown away all over again by how cool an album it is.

Kevin Moore is brilliant. :)

Yes indeed, very cool disk.

I love his stuff with Chroma Key as well.

Haven't heard any yet, but that's next on my "to buy" list. Leaning towards "Dead Air For Radios," as it was first and has the slightly cooler looking cover. ;) I know, horrible reason to buy a disc, but it works. Any thoughts?

I've heard of this OSI but I haven't heard any music from them? So it's Kevin Moore's project right? And I know Portnoy drums on it. What does it sound like, what kind of music? I'm sure I'd dig it, just need to have a listen I think.

Here's a few ways I've tried to describe it to other people:

"well, it's like NIN covering the Beatles, just in 7/4..."

"It's sorta like the 21st century, postmodern information-age version of "The Wall."

"Moore's voice is filtered out a bit and usually has a delay over the top, so it has this really "empty" quality to it... It sort of functions like a black hole at the center of a nebula, drawing all these pulsing electronica/metal beats around it and pulling them into its orbit... simply amazing."

My friend Laura, definately NOT a prog fan, summed it up simply as "this is really cool." Only CD I've played for her she's asked for a copy.

I can't see how anyone could NOT like this... buy it. :)
