    They didn't get the ballistic response some of the bands got but there was a hard core group that definitely voiced their approval... PotF are an awesome addition and fills out the diversity of the roster!
    I am excited to see them!

    I know there has been a vocal minority wanting Poets for years. The timing and situation finally worked out. In other words, I said, "fuck it...I want this band and damn the consequences." They are a desert island band for me and I'm glad I can finally tell the world that.

    This song was a game changer for me in music.

    I had actually heard of them, but had never listened to any of their material. The sounded really good in next year's presentation though. Fortunately eMusic has plenty of their albums for those of us who still have subscriptions...

    I was only familiar with them from the stuff they have done in video games, and that is pretty limited.

    Glenn - since the video announcement - this is the band that stuck out the most. I really liked the song and have checked them out on youtube. I seem to really like their slower stuff as the vocalist is awesome. The more poppy and alternative sounding stuff does not do it for me but the slower stuff is spot on. Nice find.

    I discovered them through this amazing song after playing Alan Wake, loved the band ever since. This band is not prog, but prog-adjacent bands like bands like them, King's X, and Clutch they have been talked about in prog communities. I remember them being discussed a lot on the Mike Portnoy forums around the time of Alan Wake. While I can not see them being the cup of tea of some PP fans, I don't know why anyone would say they don't belong at the fest.

    I listened to their three most recent albums and I love them. Tons of hooks and fantastic choruses. Poetic lyrics sung by an awesome vocalist just makes it that much better. I only have one complaint. Needs way more guitar solos. I would love that. Be that as it may, I am going to check out the rest of their discography and if all goes well, I have all the albums in the cart of their store. All I need to do is press the button. By the way, the video for "Daze" rules fucking hard!

    LOVE reading these kinds of reactions. I will say that you are right about the guitar solos. They have moved away from recently compared to the older ones.

    And yes...I love "Daze" as well. Did you check out the "Choice Millionaire" video while you were at it?

    This is my personal Poets playlist on Spotify:

    CM is another fucked up video. As far as the music, it's Holy '80's new wave Batman!

    I couldn't help myself. I just bought all of their albums from their store. Damn it, Glenn, you magnificent bastard!
