It's been quiet here, and nothing seems to get commenters stirred up like definitive opinions on modern music.
It's been a long time since I listened to an album multiple times in just a few days. I really have fallen for the second album from the Liquid Tension Experiment. Includes John Petrucci and Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater, another of my current favorites. The album is all instrumental, lots of guitar, with a prog rock flavor. If you like that, you might also check out the solo instrumental guitar effort of Alan Morse, of Spock's Beard. More prog rock instrumental guitar, Morse on this album is almost the reincarnation of 70's Jeff Beck (e.g. There and Back).
