Return Of The 6th Interference Album Listening Party - Axver's Modern Prog Edition

The response to my initial thread for this party wasn't particularly enthusiastic and things kind of slipped off the radar I suppose, especially with the Desert Island Album Game, but let's get this thing going before Brau kills me.

I hope folks still want to do this. I'm not so confident after the unenthusiastic initial response, but let's see where we get. The album we'll listen to is Porcupine Tree's Stupid Dream, which won the earlier poll. It's truly a fantastic album - if you listened to the tracklisting I made for the Desert Island Album Game, Piano Lessons is the second track on Stupid Dream.

If you plan on joining the party, you're going to need the album. If you don't have it, leave your e-mail address and I'll rectify the situation.

Now, we need a date and time. I'd like to propose Saturday, 8 July, 1pm Australian Eastern Time, which is Friday, 7 July, 11pm US Eastern Time. Is that OK with the listening party regulars?

Once we have a definite time, I'll upload the album, and in the e-mails, I'll let everyone know the proper time.

Sounds good to me! I always look forward to new music... especially new music accompanied by a LISTENING PARTY!

I'll need the album as well... hippy@u2email.com

I've heard you talk about this one a lot, so I'm really looking forward to hearing it!

What time would suit you, Khan? It'd be cool if you could make it.

I hope you and everyone else enjoys this one. As far as prog goes, Stupid Dream is quite song-structured, and Steven Wilson has a great voice. So it may just go down well!

Well, I know that Europe (at least GMT) is 5 hours ahead of US Eastern when there's no daylight savings. I assume both the US and Europe are in daylight savings right now though? That would mean 11pm US Eastern = 4am GMT.

So not a good time for you, I'm afraid.

Come on, people. 70 views and only 3 replies, 2 from people who can't even make it?

Surely some of you want some free music and would enjoy listening to it together. If the proposed time sucks, let's schedule a better one.

I think that'd rock.

I wonder when to schedule it, though ...!

This looks like it won't be much of a party.

Maybe I'll hold off for a bit, see if anyone else shows some interest. Is Brau on holiday or something?

Yep, that's right. Might be a bit late for east coast folk ...

I fear my modern prog has rather bombed.

Folks, I'm going to upload the album now. But please tell me if you can make it at 1pm (11pm US eastern) today. If we don't have 4 people including myself, we'll postpone it.

I don't really want this to be a party where I talk to myself. I'm also wondering where Brau is. Given these parties were his idea, it would be strange to have one without him.
