    That's what has been spining the last three times I played something. And when I say spin I mean it, lol, everything I have is on vinyl. Really been digging Tull, since I get to see them at the NAC in two weeks, for the second time.

    Perhaps but they bring back good memories of this time of year for me. All were released around this time and I was listening to them heavily around the hoildays the years they were released. I remember listening to Nuclear Assault while my parents and I went out and cut down our Christmas Tree. I listened to Seasons In The Abyss throughout November and December at all holiday parties and my grandmom's surprise birthday party. Horrorscope was a staple when I was in my senior year of highschool and in heavy rotation when I sang in the school choir and our holiday show. The Years of Decay isn't near as happy for me as my first g/f who I was gaga for broke up with me the week after it was released but it was around Thanksgiving and I had many good times after that.

    Sometimes, there's nothing better than having music associated with great memories. That's one of the things I love so much about music. Cheesy as it sounds, it transports me to great places.

    Also Christmas was always a time that I stocked up and discovered new music. Fates Warning's No Exit and Parallels, Sanctuary's Refuge Denied, Testament's New Order and Legacy, Death Angel's Frolic Through The Park, Kreator's Extreme Agression, Armored Saint's Symbol Of Salvation and oddly enough Pandora's Box from Aerosmith. All stuff I picked up around the holidays and played heavily. Combined with hangin with my friends and family and all the parties and good times, it was amplified by finding new music and thoroughly enjoying it.

    One of my particularly favorite memories is the one going to cut down the tree with my parents and rocking out to Nuclear Assault in the back seat while we sloshed around on the road in the snow.

    You know, I've been trying to get into Fates Warning, but it's just not happening. They sound too blah to me. I can't quite put my finger on it. It comes across as uninspired.

    What albums are you checking out? No Exit and Perfect Symmetry are my favorites. A Pleasent Shade Of Grey is pretty good too. Inside Out and Prallels are more poppy than progressive. Perfect Symmetry is almost Rush like. No Exit is a harder version of Iron Maiden without the galloping. FWX and Disconnected are just terrible in my eyes. They reflect Ray Alder's vocal changes in his side band Engine. The fact that Joey Vera was in both as well doesn't help either. Their sound really changed.

    I am not a fan even a little of their early albums like Spectre Within, Night On Brocken and Awaken the Guardian. John Arch wasn't the best singer and they didn't quite have the progressive qualities of later releases.

    I'm referring more to Inside Out. I was listening to it this morning, on my way to the office, and just wasn't digging it. I'll have to give some of this other stuff more of a listen. I'm listening to No Exit right now. It certainly has a harder edge -- less poppy, as you said -- and the music is more interesting. I'm not big on this style of singing, but that's just a matter of taste. I much prefer Hetfield or Ozzy over the screaming and Cookie Monster vocal styles; the former seems too melodramatic to me, and the latter just gets in the way of the music.

    Inside Out is the worse of the pair of Inside Out and Parallels. They are very similar. Parallels was a refreshing release in it's day and I still love that album but yeah it's a bit tepid.

    No Exit and Perfect Symmetry are my faves by them. PS took me forever to get into though. In 1989 it was ahead of it's time even with it's similarity to Rush. Pleasant Shade Of Grey is very much like Perfect Symmetry.

    I'm a Fates Warning fanboy.
