Staff pick by
Mr. Doctor

20.10.2012 I'll be honest with all of you: After albums like VI, their cover EP and worst of all: VII, I really felt that Shining didn't have it in them anymore and should just die.
I don't mind eating my words with a pound or two of shit as long as I can do it while listening to this album.

Shining is back.

That's because it's prog.'s ok...prog makes everything better.
