Get him King Crimson's first CD. NOONE dislikes that CD. It's an incredibly album full of sad and beautiful songs as well as uplifting ballads and progressive musicianship. You can get it at the mall, it's called In The Court of the Crimson King. Even if he likes bad bands like MCR this is one band which anyone can appreciate.

Album arts weird, I know, but it's a really phenomenal album and he will thank you for it undoubtedly. Listen to the samples and see what I mean.

I might check it out too, sounds good from your description SkyValley. I've been after new music. I'll keep an eye out for it when next in town. Hideous front cover though.

I am ghost? I haven't a clue. Just get him some Rush. Lots of Rush. Trust me, he'll thank you for all the audio orgasms he will endure.

They were practically everyone's biggest influence. Dream Theater, Mastodon, Rush, Mars Volta, and even Pink Floyd. Pretty much any other band with the label of "progressive" has been seriously touched by this group.

"Red" is probably their best album to start with aside from "In The Court..." Their later stuff is very electronic-sounding and their newest frontman is very eccentric, so it's best to start with the early stuff and move up chronologically. There's a King Crimson thread somewhere on this site, I'd recommend checking it out.

Well if they inspired Rush and Dream Theatre than I must get it. Those are two of my favorite bands. And so is Tool.
