    You listen to my kind of music! No wonder your speakers sound so good playing it! The mention of Soen really surprised me because they're not exactly a well known band, but they're really pretty good and I hear shades of Tool in their music. I discovered them on Amazon HD music a little over a year ago and played the crap out of a couple of their albums, but Cognitive is the one that really grabbed me. How cool.

    I agree also that Danny just might be the best drummer alive right now, but there are a few out there. I've been getting into Meshuggah a little bit lately and Thomas Haake is a pretty special talent also. I have to be in the right mood for Meshuggah tho. They're about as heavy a band as I can get into with the screamy/guttural vocals, but they're a talented group otherwise.



    He does a 32nd note double bass "gallop" all through that song.

    I listen to tons of different music these days. I have taken full advantage of Spotify's new feature that finally allows for offline listening from an apple watch. I just have Spotify create a random mix based on whatever genre I am into that day. If I hear something I like, I then download the entire album from that particular artist onto my apple watch and that is my music during my 90 minute daily workout / physical therapy session. I make sure my phone is NOT on me - it is my daily 90 minute DO NOT DISTURB ME routine

    I listen to a minimum of one album I have never listened to before per day.

    This evening was the album "Mandylion" from a band called The Gathering. Similar style to Lacuna Coil and Evanescence, terrific female vocalist.

    If you get a chance, check out Katatonia

    Meshuggah is too heavy for my tastes, I don't like screaming vocals but that double bass is impressive.

    For a quiet listening session, try Anette Askvik: Liberty.
    Also listening to some Allan Taylor and Hans Theesink

    For some fun techno stuff, I like Yello's Toy CD!

    Listening to Liberty right now, very relaxing - just what the Dr. ordered for a late night listening session

    Thanks for the recommendation!

    Oh, my, that voice and the sax in "Liberty"! Reminded me once more why I love the midrange of my CMT-340SE mains.

    Excellent recommendation, thanks!
