    "Into the Labyrinth" is their best work I think. It's not as medieval as their earlier work. But "Aion" is great as well. One of those two...or you could try their live album "Toward the Within" which features a bunch of tracks (like American Dreaming) that never made it onto studio releases.

    "American Dreaming" is my favorite DCD song. So fucking haunting.

    I was hoping Brendan was gonna play it on his solo tour, but it never happened. Oh well...he did play Severance, so not all was lost.

    Wow, thanks for that, Orbit....

    I hope there are some more weekend dates to come, otherwise I'm going to have to burn up what's left of my vacation to catch one of these.

    I'd pay damn good money to hear "Ullyses" live.

    Sharing the news to the co-worker was worth his genuine excited reaction. Looks like I'm going to some red butts with fellow yuppies.

    Good to know, I splurged on a ticket for their show this Tues at the Gibson and have been curious how their first night went on this tour. Their new album is fantastic.

    Called the gibson admin office today and found out that David Kuckermann is the opening act (8:15), DCD will be on stage "around 9". Can't believe I'm finally seeing DCD!

    ^Thanks for that. Was wondering a good time to get there. Not familiar with David Kuckermann.
