    I've fallen in love with two recently, opening my mind to more.


    Devin Townsend - Ziltoid The Omniscient
    Kalisia - Cybion


    I hope Kalisia isn't done =) Its been years since I've heard something of this stature. Also.... I haven't heard a French band that made me squirm with delight.

    Woot!
