    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I love old style metal, and progressive metal (Deliverance's 'River Disturbance'), but I also love Neal Morse's music. When prog gets a little funky or jazzy, okay, I do tune out a little bit, but it always comes back on track with some great hard rock or melodic rock, or a great piano or guitar solo. Metal is kind of 'for kids', or for the 'kid' in me, but prog is more 'adult' music. Like Dream Theater. Van Halen is for guys who haven't grown up yet. When you grow up, you'll listen to Dream Theater and Neal Morse.

Here is Mike Portnoy, from Dream Theater, discussing Neal Morse.

And here is Momentum, by Neal Morse, featuring Portnoy on drums. And Portnoy performing Kayla, by Neal.

I'm in Neal's Inner Circle, so I get a disc - CD or DVD - every month.
