I'm a nube when it comes to this band, but I would definitely have to agree with Lynchomaniac, Terry. Based on what I've heard, you won't truly get a sense of what this band is really about by just listening to bits and pieces. That works for me for most bands, but, at best, it will give you a very general, overall sense of what to expect on an album like Subsurface. It's what happened with me when I listened to the samples before buying it. The album is soooo much more impressive than the samples suggested. I'm not really sure why I took a chance after checking out the soundbytes, but I'm really glad that I did.

Other bands that would be hard to nail down based on short samples might include Rush, Pink Floyd, Dream Theatre, etc. I'd say that these guys fall squarely into this territory.

I'm not overly into prog stuff, and these guys might very well be described that way, but I'm quickly becoming a fan. They're definitely worth checking out, T-Man.
Cheers,
Don
