    Alright I was just wondering, I've lately got so many things to buy.

    I thought about making a list but I was too lazy to,
    just mention all kinds of must-get albums for a prog-metal-&otherstuff -guy.

    (Note; I've got all Opeth albums)

    Edit:

    OH BTW, YOU CAN RECOMMEND ANYTHING BETWEEN YES AND BURZUM, incl Power metal. (But NOT hardrock stuff, unless it's progressiveness is above Uriah Heep (doesn't seem that prog to me...).)

    The actual question is: "Why should I NOT get it?"
    It's an excellent concept album. Funny story and "acting", but serious music. Some very awesome dynamics. A great mix of all of Devy's previous works.

    It's their best album, by a long shot, and it's one of my faves of all time.

    Umm...ok. :)

    Though, could you people write somekind of descriptions for the albums, I'm not gonna buy albums just because you happen to list them. :lol: Edit: can't even afford them, maybe one or two at a time.

    Btw. I recommend;
    Ayreon - 01011001
    Ayreon - The human equation

    Both are just basically awesome prog shit with multiple singers and etc. And 01011001 is my favorite album of all time, better than any Opeth or Dream Theater album. :headbang:
