Re: [ProgAndOther] Re: Cheer-Accident (was re:Wierd Concert Experience )
Finally had a chance to crack it open and listen to it last night. My initial impression is it pushes all the right buttons for me and a perfect fit for the Cuneiform label. I have a couple other C-A releases and this is by far the most refined sounding and my favorite so far compositionally. I remember them playing a few selections last friday night - even with the sparse instumentation the live versions were killer, i'm sure this disc will get even better with repeated spins.

Sounds like you made quite an impression on the CA folks Rich!
So, how do you like the new record? I got it right after it was released. I had to make myself NOT play it every time I sat down to do some listening. Really really great record IMO.

Rich! I am glad that you got to see Cheer-Accident. I really liked them at
ProgDay. Ironically, Rhea had to wake up early this morning to do some
volunteer work for a parade organized by the Variety Club. We tried to find
out when the various bands would start. They couldn't tell us that. That was
somewhat understandable, but they couldn't even tell us the order of the
bands! (There were 3 of them.) Without that info, and with the music
scheduled to start at 9:00, we decided not to go. Based on your report, it
sounds like a good decision.
Anyway, I'm glad that you had a good time.
