At the age of 3, Little Mark Stephens' parents were already worried that perhaps he invested a little too much attention in playing 45 RPM records for hours on end.
At the age of 13, he discovered Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. He went on to become a commercial FM radio DJ/Announcer. He soon discovered, however, that music promotion was much more rewarding when he promoted music he really believed in! Although he now earns a living as a mild mannered Project Manager, when the time is right, he still dons his patented Rick Wakeman ProgRock Super-DJ Cape and spins tunes at LoudCity's ProgPositivity Radio!

No, at this point I wouldn't be at all surprised at reviewers' inconsistency: it's the rule rather than the exception. Unfortunately, our ears have been trained to want the same ol' thing over and over again, and it's a rare soul that deviates from the norm, even in 'alternative' systems. Thank you for the encouragement: rest assured that the negativity hasn't slowed me down at all.
