For those wondering, I'm planning on updating some of my customs in the near future.

Release:

Spinal Tap - (Listen to) the Flower People

http://customscreato...r-people-r16174

Yep. Spinal Tap! The best band in the world. This is a song recorded back in 1967 when they were a psychedelic pop-rock group. This song has a similar feel to stuff The Monkeys would be putting out around that same time.
 
This song was included in their 1982 album "Smell the Glove", as a bonus track since they were running out of new material to put on the album. This album sparked much controversy over it's heavily censored cover, the original cover [according to Bobbi Flekman] was "a greased, naked woman on all fours with a dog collar around her neck and a leash, and a man's arm extended out... holding on to the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it."
 
I don't know sounds ok to me.
 
Either way Marty Di Bergi did a great documentary of the band at that time covering the North American leg of the "Smell the Glove" tour [Dubbed "Smell the Tour", if my sources are correct]. This is a great song from the band, and one that will last a lifetime
 
just a note this is not the reggae version that was released as DLC, this is the original version.

Excellent writeup!!!

 

"This pretentious ponderous collection of religious rock psalms is enough to prompt the question, 'What day did the Lord create Spinal Tap, and couldn't he have rested on that day too?'"

So I was going to bulk release these, but ultimately decided against it. The update for "The Spirit of Radio" is up, with a new keys track thanks to ejthedj! Credits for each part are in the new description as well!

Release (with Bsbloom):

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick (album)

imJST4K.jpg

 

Part 1:http://customscreato...k-part-i-r16743

Part 2:http://customscreato...-part-ii-r16744

 

Lyrics by Gerald "Little Milton" Bodstock. The lyrics were considered to controversial and as a result he was disqualified from the poem competition. Well Jethro Tull wrote a 40 minute epic around those lyrics and what we get is considered by some to be the best progressive rock album ever made. You know everything about this song already, it's Thick as a Brick!

 

Special thanks to Bsbloom who let me work on this with him, it great fun and a pleasure to work on this project. As a final note, there is a "full song" version in the "other" downloads section, it's the whole album as one custom (when researching the album Ian Anderson stated that part of the concept was that it was supposed to be one song spanning two sides of an LP). The midi is well over the minimum, but when playtesting I came across no issues.

 

Here's Bsbloom's Origonal post.

I've just watched the preview through cPlayer, haven't played it in game yet.   This really is the most fascinating custom I've seen here in months.  I don't think anyone is going to top this one for a long time.  I've already excitedly told two band mates "some madman charted the entire Thick as a Brick album as one giant custom".  Just amazing.  You rock dude!

Tried the full version on guitar. Lots of fun, although it unfortunately froze when trying to load the score screen. I wonder why it gets all the way to the end of the song and THEN freezes? THat's happened on other very long customs I've tried as well. At least I could play, managed gold stars too.

The midi for the 40 min version is well above the limit for a midi. Although I had no issues when testing it myself, that kinda thing might happen ("Colors" by BTBAM and "Cassandra Gemini" will do that to me on occasion).

Yep.  Parts I and II work.  The combined version might work for you - it works for some people.  Given the size of the MIDI, it isn't supposed to work at all.
