Wow, that was bizarre. Literally just as you made that post, I got your e-mail with the thing to proofread. I was wondering where you'd got to. And it's timestamped for some 50 minutes ago ...

The Rest Will Flow is a great song.

Lazarus feels like a cliched pick, so I'm not going to use that one. I adore The Rest Will Flow ... though I think I've used it before.

The Moon Touches Your Shoulder is definitely one I'm considering. I'm not going to use Stop Swimming, as it's fairly depressing and that's not at all the mood I'm going for. Maybe I should do something radical and not use a PT song at all! SW's already there twice anyway - not that you hear his voice on either track and it'll be interesting to see if anyone guesses which are the SW tracks.
You know what's really beautiful? Truenorth from the new No-Man album. Have you listened to that yet? It's gorgeous.

No, I haven't. I downloaded the previous No-Man album and didn't like it so I was kind of put off checking out other recent stuff, and I've had trouble finding the earlier stuff. I have the Days In The Trees EP and love it. Mahler is guaranteed to be on my DI V submission.

I actually haven't listened to anything else by No-Man. I saw that a new album was coming out and decided to start with that.

I don't know what the past albums are like, but I really enjoyed this new one, and Truenorth is an epic, over 12 minutes long and beautiful use of strings.

What's it like stylistically? Together We're Stranger is quite ambient, and Tim Bowness's voice bugged me in that context. But he works well on the Days In The Trees EP.

I see what you're saying regarding Lazarus. It's starting to get that bit of an overused feeling associated with it.

Yeah, it seems to be that one PT track that's most likely to show up in lists made by people who aren't serious PT fans.

I must admit, I'm tempted to use Nine Cats, to add something a bit whimsical.

Oh, it's definitely mellow. Lots of piano, acoustic guitar, and yes, ambient in some cases. But it also has a harder edge at times, like with Pigeon Drummer, which actually rocks out.

It's actually quite atmospheric. I think you may enjoy it.

Footprints could be a possibility, too.

Have a good night.

So for the genre introduction of first wave prog rock I think I am going to try to use examples of long songs that really needed to be that long. I hope to get people used to listening to a longer song. Do you guys think that is a good idea?

Depends on the song.

There is, however, a stereotype associated with prog rock that stems with the first wave - that it is all long songs with drawn out solos that go on forever, and while this is the case some of the time, it is not what happens ALL the time. So while a long song would be ok, I think some shorter pieces that show the diversity of the genre might be needed as well.
