|I saw YES last night in San Francisco. They had a skinny, long-haired girly-boy singing in place of Jon Anderson (looked just like a 1970 Jon Anderson) and he sounded pretty good.|
The band was not in their best form, but did a pretty enjoyable show. It makes me wonder—-When you have most of the players replacing the original members, when do you go from being a band, to being a tribute band??
The set list was awesome—they played The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, and Time and a Word all the way through. Good tunes.

|This is a great example of why I listen to RP—-yes, this is a different song, but incredibly beautiful, and not the sort I'd normally listen to on commercial radio. |

(Oct 15, 2012 - 09:43)
|It's funny—I took a one-year break from listening to RP because my computer kept dropping the station. During that time, I stopped ordering new CD's, and was listening to one of the good local radio stations online.|
This month, I started listening to RP again, and have ordered 6 new CD's in the past two weeks, adding to my collection of hundreds of CD's that would have NEVER been purchased without the existience of Radio Paradise.

*edit They have a new CD out now. I haven't heard much of it yet. I know this CD is a beaut though
I was kind of hoping that GIAA would be more like Porcupine Tree. I got this CD and decided it was a lot more of the "playing with Moog" than the real depth of musical talent that PT presents. A good listen though, if you have something else to occupy yourself with. Like driving. Or dentistry.

Drive to South Maui, past Makena to Big Beach (Onelea.) Park your car and buy a chicken/pineapple taco and a bag of fresh icy pineapple from the guy on the corner. Don't squeeze his fruit. He'll lecture you about it.
Walk on over to Big Beach. Sit your fine island ass down on the sand and enjoy that taco. Don't wipe the pineapple juice off your chin—it deserves some quality time there. Maybe take a little walk over the bluff to Little Beach and enjoy a bong hit with the hundreds of naked locals sunning, dancing and swimming there.

Mine did. I was pretty violent with my vintage Speed Racer record player...

|Dengue Fever - Oceans of Venus|
(Sep 08, 2008 - 13:17)
In ska-like music, why to musicians feel it's acceptable to solo in a completely different key from the rest of the song? Some may call it musical genius—-I call it being so damn brilliant that you can't be bothered with your listeners.
|Radiohead - Weird Fishes/Arpeggi|
(Jul 14, 2008 - 18:20)
However, please explain to me how this is similar to Porcupine Tree. I don't get it.
Radiohead is similar to Porcupine Tree only in that it is rooted in prog rock (Yes, Emerson/Lake/Palmer, etc.) It's hard to get to love for most people, complex melodies, smarter than the average listener's stuff. You know...nerd music. Love it.
|Porcupine Tree - My Ashes|
(Apr 27, 2008 - 16:40)
|SAME HERE! The industry makes money off of the activities of RP. It will never survive in the long term off of pop artists. The money's in selling tons of "other" artists as well as the pops.
I never would have discovered Porcupine Tree if it hadn't been for RP. Over the last 6 months or so, I've bought everything they've recorded. (Tell THAT to the music industry idiots who are trying to overcharge internet radio stations!)

(Apr 21, 2008 - 14:32)
Yeah, definitely sounds like that one song of his, can't remember the name of it though.
John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, "On the Dark Side." Totally ripped off.
|Porcupine Tree - Always Never|
(Apr 09, 2008 - 12:15)
Personal note/opinion: I liked my first listen of this band enough to buy a cd (Deadwing). What I found is that, while I like them pretty much every time I hear them on RP, I get really, really bored when I listen to more than a half an hour of them - pretty much like the old Yes lp's from the 70's.
Do not blaspheme in this house!
|Porcupine Tree - Fadeaway|
(Mar 18, 2008 - 10:18)
Pink Floyd? PT is better than PF. Better than Yes, better than Robert Fripp/King Crimson, broader than early Genesis. For perspective, I am extremely fond of all the forementioned bands.
Wow--that's a serious claim. I too am a PT super-fan, but one thing I have noticed is that PT is having a slow growth period. Their CD's totally rock, but in the past 13 years, how much has their music grown? Look at Yes and Pink Floyd--the end results were TOTALLY different from their early successful releases. Rockers get old, and if they don't grow, they may end up sounding like (gasp!) Peter Frampton or worse...
|Air - Alone In Kyoto|
(Mar 11, 2008 - 08:53)
|Nice segue from Zero 7. Radio Paradise has totally impacted my listening and CD-buying habits. Air, Porcupine Tree, Zero 7, Single Gun Theory, Marlibone--who knew there was such incredible music once you get out of the radio industry?|
|Jeff Buckley - Lover, You Should've Come Over|
(Mar 10, 2008 - 11:01)
|Just to evoke a moment to attach this song to...
I had this on my MP3 player as my friends and I took our rafts for three weeks down the Grand Canyon. One night as the temperature barely dipped below 90, I lay out on my sleeping pad looking at the Arizona stars and listened to Jeff Buckley.
I turned on my headlamp to read, and was immediately swarmed by some kind of non-biting bug. Millions of them. Billions! I was just about to turn the light off when I saw hundreds of small bats start a blitzkreig attack on the bugs. Darting in and out of my light beam, swallowing up a buffet, the bats cleared out every last bug alive.
I was left with a completely unblocked sky, viewing stars and planets (and a few fat bats). Just me and Mr. Buckley, wailing away at the desert silence.

|Nick Lowe - When I Write The Book|
(Feb 20, 2008 - 14:33)

|I really enjoy Phish, but...all those melodies start sounding like the same phucking song after a while.

|Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon - Oh Well|
(Nov 03, 2007 - 09:49)
This song is lame and is also overplayed.
This song rocks, and it's a great study with so many versions and interpretations. Look at the bright side...
|Blind Faith - Can't Find My Way Home|
(Oct 29, 2007 - 10:13)
|I just LOVE this song. Brings up images of some disillusioned, hungry and dirty hippie child walking around the Haight in October of 1967, wondering what to do next...

|I tried a vegemite sandwich once. I had just moved to New Zealand, and our postman dropped in to welcome us. He gave us a jar of vegemite and said, "It's great, try it on toast." (This was 1977, years before this song.)

|Cyndi Lauper - She Bop (acoustic)|
(Oct 01, 2007 - 10:00)
|Too bad that Lauper is only known for this song. The rest of her non-Top-40 career is covered in excellent singing and creative as hell. She's really a gem, and wish she got more airplay.|

(Sep 29, 2007 - 12:26)
|I hate to admit it, but I think Neil has the most annoying voice since Bobby Dylan. Yes, both are musical gods, but fer crissakes, they weren't graced with the gift of pipes. The two of you--go sit in the corner with Steve Miller!|

(Sep 26, 2007 - 10:11)

|Porcupine Tree - Piano Lessons|
(Sep 13, 2007 - 13:18)
|If you listen to the slide guitar in the background through this song, you can hear the prog rock influences of Steve Howe (Yes) and the Pink Floyd harmonies.
Incredible stuff---they stand on the shoulders of giants.
|Phil Keaggy - County Down|

|Sit around, masturbate, and listen to Porcupine Tree all day. Nothing better.

Yeah, but it's a little hard to find female Porcupine Tree fans. Same problem with Yes. Da chicks just don' dig da Prog.
|The Cure - Love Song|
(Jun 20, 2007 - 12:16)
|Great song, originally. Now make it go away. It's depressing, and love songs are supposed to be at least a little uplifting, yeah?|
|Sigur Rós - Olsen Olsen|

|After discovering Sigur Ros on RP, I bought this CD. AWESOME! EXCELLENT! Definitely worth buying.
|Alpinestars - Hotel Parallel|
(May 23, 2007 - 14:46)
I disagree--I thought that this CD really sucked. But seeing other positive postings here, I guess I need to listen to it a few dozen times to get the full effect.
|The Derek Trucks Band - This Sky|
(May 16, 2007 - 12:41)
Thank you. I bought this because I heard it here. I have never spent so much on music in my life as I have since listening to RP. My ipod resembles a playlist by Bill.
NO KIDDING! Before I started to listen to RP, my collection of CD's was less than 40, and the selection was stale. After two years of RP, I buy at least 1 new CD a week, and my collection is pissing off my wife. Ipod is full, thanks.
Why don't the music companies see the market value of organizations like RP???

|This sounds like a direct copy of it--glad I'm not the only one who hears it. Anyone remember the mid 80's? Eddie and the Cruisers?

|This song was playing at my wedding reception, some 13-odd years ago. I was sitting there, wondering what the hell I had just done an hour previously, and this sone came on--long, slow, balanced and pondering. Kind of put things in perspective as to how a marriage is...over time.|
|Yes - Roundabout|
(Apr 09, 2007 - 08:14)
|In an old interview, Yes talked about the making of this song. They couldn't get the percussion in the instrumental section just right, so they drummed on a line of Coke bottles. Created a plinking sound. Listen for it.
|Engineers - Waved On|
(Mar 07, 2007 - 13:23)
|This song, and the CD it's on, is well worth owning if you like a super-hypnotic experience with great melodies. Too bad they only really have one stand-alone CD.|

|Listening to this on RP, I purchased this CD. AMAZING. Hypnotic. Wonderful. Really creative, incredible piece of work!
|Michael Franti and Spearhead - Light Up Ya Lighter|
(Mar 02, 2007 - 09:21)
|I went to high school with Mike Franti--he was a really nice, funny guy, kind of the class clown. A solo black man in a nearly all-white school.
At some point in his life, he has become aware and enlightened, and his music and life reflects that. He has done much more than crank out good tunes--he has dedicated his existence to improving the lot of many who suffer political and economic hardship. Sort of a Bono without the cameras present.
Three cheers for any artist who is willing to stand behind the meaning of their art.
|The Moody Blues - Lovely To See You|
(Feb 26, 2007 - 17:57)
|This is great intro song to a great album. Make sure you hear it on scratchy vinyl. Drop a sugar cube if you're still under 70. |
|Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms|
(Feb 26, 2007 - 14:46)
|What an AMAZING segue--Beethoven to Dire Straits.
I just finished listening to a presentation of original Tuskeegee Airmen, all in their 80's and 90's. They fought prejudice at home before going to Europe to fight the Germans. It gives this song a deeper new meaning.
A perfect 10 to be sure.
|The Beatles - Revolution 1|
(Feb 22, 2007 - 15:32)

|I really love Zero 7--bought all their CD's including this one. This is their latest, and has a wonderful sound to it. Not really jazz, not really blues or new age, but has a piece of all of that in there. Great music if you are a prog rock/Yes/Procupine Tree lover.|

|Let's be honest--the best possible place for a nerd-girl to get a date (instantly) is at your friendly Yes, Porcupine Tree or King Crimson concert. Only us true nerd-boys listen to this good stuff.

I have my husband to thank for introducing them to me!
|The Beatles - I'm So Tired|
(Oct 24, 2006 - 12:44)
But while we're on the subject, after hearing the word all these years, just what is the actual meaning of the word "dipshit"?
rotter, dirty dog, rat, skunk, stinker, stinkpot, bum, puke, crumb, lowlife, scum bag, so-and-so...
Git: a person who is deemed to be despicable or contemptible; "only a rotter would do that"; "kill the rat"; "throw the bum out"; "you cowardly little pukes!"; "the British call a contemptible person a `git'"
|Porcupine Tree - Mellotron Scratch|
(Oct 17, 2006 - 16:32)
Brought me out of the woodwork.
Saw them Friday night at the Fillmore.
Phenominal show indeed.
So tight and pure to even the studio recordings.
Gavin Harrison on Drums 10!
Steven Wilson on Guitar & Vocals 10!
Outstanding show!! I'm still woozy from the contact high. 8-)
I actually walked out of the show--by 11:00 p.m., I was too tired to stand through a set of new, never released songs. The Alanis Morrisette accoustical cover sent me over the edge...
|Porcupine Tree - Start of Something Beautiful|
(Oct 16, 2006 - 13:47)
|I saw Porcupine Tree last Friday at the Fillmore in San Francisco. It was probably the worst concert I ever attended (can't say for sure--we left after a few songs.)
The format for this concert was that the band would play a bunch of never-release songs, then do a set of "the oldies." For progressive rock, you need to hear the songs a few times to develop a taste for the stuff. I love PT, have all their CD's, but it's crazy to ask your audience to join you for a 2-hour trip of unknown and disjointed tunes. We buy their CD's, we buy their concert tickets, with the expectation that they will share the experience with us. Instead, they used their audience as a focus group to float new ideas. Bad idea.

(Oct 01, 2006 - 14:41)
|I remember sitting on the bus going to Butte College way back when. Over the radio, the DJ announced that there was a helicopter crash, and it was likely that Eric Clapton's bird had crashed, killing all aboard.
I remember a sign of relief when they later announced that it was in fact not Clapton's helicopter, but that Stevie Ray Vaughan had died. Who? Oh, the guy with the good riffs.
Now the loss seems so much heavier, listening to this wonderful tune.

(Sep 14, 2006 - 17:16)
In it's time this was an important and innovative album, but I don't think it stands the test of time very well. To me it sounds outdated and boring now.
Funny--I felt like this album got better over time--mellowed like a fine wine...
|Jeff Buckley - Lilac Wine|
(Aug 30, 2006 - 15:33)
Remember that Buckley died (oops--should we wear a life jacket when swimming in swift rivers??) while making this recording. His mother insisted that the CD be made without engineering, so what you hear is Buckley's raw voice--good and bad. This is one of the rare "real" recordings you will hear of a musician.
|Air - La Femme D'Argent|
(Aug 29, 2006 - 10:52)

|Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun|
(Jul 13, 2006 - 18:13)

|Golden Palominos - Pure|
(Apr 19, 2006 - 17:24)
|This CD is both disturbing and dreamy, and definitely worth having. The first track is a monologue of a kidnapping/killing of a young woman. Pretty much the most disturbing thing I've ever heard. Incredibly artistic CD overall.|
|Porcupine Tree - Dark Matter|
(Apr 04, 2006 - 15:06)
|I just purchased this CD--what an incredible collection of music! Extremely diverse, creative, soft, hard. All good things.
Interestingly, the harmonies are like a mish-mash of Pink Floyd and Phish. Phink Phloyd?
|Tasmin Archer - Sleeping Satellite|

(Nov 14, 2005 - 09:07)
|Oh, C'mon you old fuddies. This song still rocks and you know it. Just close your eyes, envision yourself finishing off your last Coors in the back of your Chevy Nova, and tune into this song on K-ZAP. Are we there? Don't spill that beer on your "I'm With Stupid" t-shirt... |
|Yes - And You And I|
(Sep 23, 2005 - 14:00)
|Having seen every Yes show in California for the past 15 years, I'd say that the band has hit a point that they no longer are able to offer new magic with their past few CD's (along with a shameful re-issue of Greatest Hits varieties every year or so.)
That being said, they STILL ROCK at their live concerts, every time. Last year they toured with a 58-piece symphony, and the magic was re-invented. They're not fat, tired or completely brain damaged like most of the acts that bless the Konocti Harbor Home for the Rock&Roll Deceased.
|Porcupine Tree - Stop Swimming|
(Sep 19, 2005 - 10:51)
The music sounds so much like Seal that I thought Trevor Horn must be producing.
That's the first thing that went to my mind, and I immediately checked the comments to see if anyone else heard that...
|Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond|
(May 15, 2005 - 17:36)
What is a "steel breeze"?
A sharp wind, cold, ominous, that cuts through you like a knife. Okay, I made that up. But that's the way the song sounds.
|Small Faces - Wicked Messenger|
(Apr 29, 2005 - 15:05)
|When I saw the ratings on this song, it seemed like the slime on the bottom of the Titanic. This song ROCKS! It pulled me out of a lull in my office work and reminded me that it's FRIDAY, and time to take off my pants!|
|Air - Cherry Blossom Girl|
(Apr 13, 2005 - 12:35)
|There's a strange harmony that reminds me of a Beatle's song from Beatle's VI--? "Do what you want to do, go where you're going to, think for yourself cuz I will be there for you..." It seems like the vocal harmonies are a direct copy.|

|Listening to this song, I looked up in interest. After really listening to it, I decided that this must be the work of someone who REALLY wants to be a musician, but will never make it out of birthdays and weddings. Oh well.|
|Elliott Smith - Tomorrow Tomorrow|
(Jan 18, 2005 - 12:38)
|Some of the intro riffs to this song sound mysteriously like Topographical Oceans, and old Yes album. Nice song though.|
|Sigur Rós - Untitled Track 8|
(Dec 14, 2004 - 13:37)
|This is one of those songs that you hear on RP, and end up buying the album and discovering a wonderful new genre.
|The Beeps - Paterson|
(Dec 13, 2004 - 11:17)
|I was busy at work, only partially listening to RP. This song made me put down my pencil and dream...|
|Lemon Jelly - Homage To Patagonia|
(Dec 06, 2004 - 15:35)
Well, I'm hearing it too. The bassline in particular keeps threatening to turn into "Tusk." Without the marching band, of course.
I totally hear Tusk in this song. In a good way...
|Allman Brothers - Dreams|

Anyone know what happened to Scooter the rodie Greg " toot and tell" Allman ratted out?" Great musician, real asshole.
In 1977, the Marshall Tucker and Charlie Daniels bands headlined a benefit concert for Scooter Herring, an ex-roadie for the Allman Brothers Band. Herring was facing a cocaine trafficking conviction based, in part, on testimony from Greg Allman. It was Allman's move to give evidence that caused the breakup of the Allman Brothers. Herring, meanwhile, was sentenced to 75 years in prison.
|Seal - Human Beings|
(Nov 04, 2004 - 13:48)
|See Seal live if you ever get the opportunity. He is a truly humble, incredibly gifted individual. When playing live, his songs slow down to a heartbeat level, allowing the audience to drink slowly and savor carefully. Well worth the reasonable ticket price.|
|Air - Alone In Kyoto|
(Oct 08, 2004 - 09:28)
|Air grows on you, like a comfortable sweater. If you look too deep, you'll see that it's just two bucks worth of cotton, but it feels good.|
|Air - Venus|
(Sep 28, 2004 - 14:11)
|I purchased Walkie Talkie after hearing this song on RP. The CD is quite excellent, save for a couple songs that don't translate well from the French ("Surfing on a Rocket" or something like that.)
|Sheila Chandra - Ever So Lonely / Ocean|
(Sep 17, 2004 - 12:52)
Has the comparison been made yet between this song and that one Beatles song... what was it? "Unplug your mind", was it called?
For No One.
|Timbuk 3 - National Holiday|
(Sep 16, 2004 - 12:54)
|Timbuk 3 still brings back those "Gotta Wear Shades" memories of being a student at Chico State, floating down the Sacramento River in an inner-tube, drinking toxic levels of home-made wine coolers. Mmmmm. |
