Fallen: Evanescence Covered
Recreation of the Evanescence album Fallen with covers. Artwork generated with Leonardo.Ai and PhotoReal. Text written with free Evanescent font. I remember noting that Evanescence was the first new band I got into during the 21st century. Although I had heard some metal during the 20th century, it seemed to be angry, abrasive music with bad vocals and little artistic merit. But the music of Evanescence was very artistic with beautiful female vocals. In some ways it was similar to October Project, but it had a harder edge. 1. "Going Under" by Lauren Babic, Chris Mifsud Lauren Babic is a Canadian singer who frequently posts covers of hard rock and metal to YouTube. She has collaborated and toured with both Halocene and Violet Orlandi, mentioned below. It is her face on the cover of the a

Hybrid Theory: Covering Linkin Park
Recreating Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory with covers. Artwork generated with Leonardo.Ai. I discovered Linkin Park through the Live Earth concert Al Gore organized for 7/7/2007. While Evanescence was the first, Linkin Park was the second metal group I got into. Both have more artistic music with better singing than I had previously heard from metal. But another thing that distinguished Linkin Park was its hybrid of rap and metal. While I have never been much into straight rap, I have appreciated rap mixed with music, such as the last Miles Davis album Doo-Bop or "Roll the Bones" by Rush.
A recreation of the Tori Amos album with one cover per song, all in the same order. Each cover is my favorite of the ones available, though sometimes only one was available. Drawing inside the frame generated with Leonardo.Ai and the Cute Anime Girls model

I first heard Tori Amos playing in the background while I was at a cafe with friends, and I thought it was Kate Bush playing. One of them corrected me, telling me it was Tori Amos. I soon got into Tori Amos and found that I liked her even more than Kate Bush.

Most of these have female vocals. A few are instrumental, because vocal covers were not available, and the title track has male vocals, because that was the only option. I tried to get different artists where I could, but necessity stopped me from completely doing that. Also, I th Draw, Songs, Girl Model, Anime Girl, Cute, Amos, Drawings, Artist

A First Tour of Progressive Rock Through Live Albums
Starting with Asia, through whom I got into progressive rock, this playlist features live albums from artists I got into through or soon after Asia. Multiple live albums by the same band are chosen to complement each other by showcasing different periods or lead singers. Instead of being yet another list of favorites, this is a curated list of live albums for getting into progressive rock. A live album brings together some of the best music of an artist. As some bands had long careers with multiple periods or even lead singers, I represented some with two or three live albums. When I did, I tried to minimize overlap between songs and between lineups. I chose artists I have been listening to for a long time. I got into most of them during the 80s, and I had albums by all of them before I

Yesmen: The other music of Yes Members
Music from members of the progressive rock group Yes. It's probably best to play on shuffle, since whole albums are grouped together. You can browse the list to find out what else your favorite Yes members have done. I will add new albums as they come out or I learn about them. This is a huge collection of almost any music I can find by members of Yes outside of Yes. This includes solo material, collaborations, and work with other bands. For the purposes of this list, I am counting only officially recognized members who have recorded with Yes on at least one album. By this criterion, Yes has had 18 members. The collage represents all but one of them. Solo albums with a clear picture of the member are normally favored. To fit 17 members on 16 albums, one album is a collaboration between tw

Yes Covers: Going for the One

Of the individual performers, Adam Wakeman is the son of Rick Wakeman, who was the keyboardist on Going for the One, Lee Pomeroy is a bassist who has worked with Yes feat.

Yes Covers: Yesterday & Before
Covers of songs from the first three Yes albums, Yes, Time and a Word, and The Yes Album.

"Beyond and Before" by Mabel Greer's Toyshop Mabel Greer's Toyshop is what Yes used to call itself. So, the original members of Yes are all former members. But before the lineup that became Yes, this band included vocalist Clive Bayley, drummer Robert Hagger and bassist Paul Rutledge. In 2014, Bayley, Hagger, and Tony Kaye, who were all former members, joined Billy Sherwood of Yes and Hugo Barré for the lineup that recorded this cover. 2.
