Without a doubt, one of the best recordings, since Deadwing; but that was only a cd, and solo ago.If this doesn't make you start to purchase pre-orders, nothing will. Bonnie the cat makes me glad I don't own one-cats. A pure prism of listening pleasured event of the year.-mw

Fear of a Blank Planet and In Absentia were PT's best albums so far. The new album doesn't join this list unfotunately since it sounds like a Greatest Hits of Porcupine Tree.

This gets full marks from me. Another excellent outing from PT. I love the 55-minute song cycle concept, it just flows so well and covers all the sonic bases from light and melancholic to heavy. I've been playing it obsessively since it arrived. Already one of my favorite albums of the year

In the years to come this will be their "Dark Side" from Floyd, or Marillion's "Clutching at Straws" or IQ's "Suberranea". A crowning achievement. I admit it took a couple of listens for all the textures to fall into place. Amazingly the live performance in Cleveland sounded better than the record

Excelente regreso de Steve Wilson y Cia. Con un CD doble compuesto por una obra conceptual de 55 minutos y otro CD de un poco mas de 20 minutos que no tiene mucho que ver con el CD 1, ni tampoco aporta mucho. La verdad que no hay nada muy novedoso en este excelente CD. En este nuevo trabajo de PT, han recopilado en 55 minutos todos los trabajos y estilos que han ido realizando desde el año 2000, podemos escuchar metal progresivo, ambient, rock industrial, psicodelia y POP. Se trata de un CD muy entretenido que sin duda gustará a los seguidores de Mr. Wilson, pero no es una "Obra maestra" tal como indican algunas revisiones. Sin duda que es un trabajo muy bien ejecutado con momentos muy memorables, como es el caso de los temas en donde casi clona los rasgueos de Animals de Pink Floyd, pero de muy buena manera. Pero tambien hay momentos muy metaleros y otros muy POP, lo que en resumen crean un CD muy variado y entretenido, pero NO se trata de una Obra maestra. Uno de los puntos bajos, es que se indica que se compone de un tema de 55 minutos y la verdad que no es así, mas bien son un conjunto de metas, unos enlazados y otros notoriamente separados que tematicamente tratan del mismo asunto (como the Wall de PF o Subterranea de IQ), pero no es un solo tema como Solar Music. Un agrado escuchar a PT que está dejando un poco el Metal de su disco anterior (sin dejarlo por completo) y escuchar un nuevo trabajo muy variado y entretenido. Muy recomendado, pero no se trata de una Obra maestra tal como lo indican algunos fanaticos de PT, creo ellos han perdido autoridad para analizar las nuevas producciones de Steve Wilson. Me suena como si el Club de Hanna Montana analizara los discos de HM, pues siempre para ellos serán Obras maestras. Hugo Castro Salinas, Santiago de Chile.

  • "A vintage live recording from highly acclaimed prog rock band Greenslade in one of their final performances, packaged in a sleek digipak with extensive liner notes!Digitaly remastered to achieve a rich, clear sound, this concert album features highlights from the band’s latter career including “Bedside Manners Are Extra,” “Drum Folk” and more!“I listened with pleasure to the recordings.

  • "The proper follow-up to Among the Living was somewhat disappointing in its inconsistency. While there are some good moments -- "Be All, End All" is one of the band's most melodic moments, and several other tracks catch fire -- the best thing here is a cover of Trust's "Antisocial," and it doesn't bode well when covers outshine original material. The lyrics continue the self-consciously intellectual, PC approach begun on Among the Living, but about half of the album is surprisingly dull." - All Music Guide

  • In Hoc Signo is the blowtorch debut from this Italian band playing in the "Rock Progressivo Italiano" style.  Its a young band based out of Rome.  Their goal was to use vintage sounds and replicate the sounds of the 70s and they do it in spades.  Mellotron M400, Hammond B3 Organ, Mini Moog Voyager, Electric Piano, Elka Synthex - all the good keyboard stuff that will send chills down your spine.  Killer lead licks on violin and guitar fight for space with the keys.  I'm reminded of Quella Vecchia Locanda, PFM, King Crimson and Le Orme!  If this isn't enough the band added a couple of guests: Anglagard's Mattias Olsson plays on a track and helped with arrangements.  The legendary David Jackson plays sax and flute.  This one kills and it kills and it doesn't stop killing.  BUY OR DIE!

  • "November 2006 saw a highly successful UK tour by John Lees' Barclay James Harvest. Featuring founder BJH members John Lees & Woolly Wolstenholme, the tour featured some of the finest music from the BJH canon. Perennial classics such as "Mockingbird", "Poor Man's Moody Blues", "Child of the Universe" & "Hymn" were joined by definitive versions of "The Great 1974 Mining Disaster", "The Poet" / "After the Day" and "Poor Wages", none of which had been performed live for over 30 years. A film crew & mobile recording unit for a DVD & CD release captured the London concert on November 5th. Cited by John Lees as "The best live album I've ever made", "Legacy" is a superb audio document of a legendary band."Valhalla (Introduction) / For No One / Child Of The Universe / The Iron Maiden / The Great 1974 Mining Disaster / Poor Man's Moody Blues / Suicide? / Medicine Man / In Search of England / Poor Wages / Mocking Bird / The Poet / After The Day / Hymn

  • Remastered edition with bonus tracks."This album attempted to repeat the pop-metal formula of Gary Moore's 1985 album, Run for Cover, but falls short for various reasons. First, the songwriting wasn't quite up to par and except for "Over the Hills and Far Away, the title track, and "The Loner" - a beautifully moody guitar instrumental, Moore seemed to be going through the motions. Second, and most fatal was the decision to use a drum machine throughout the album; a failed experiment which just plain sounds wrong. Still, this is hardly a bad record, just slightly disappointing." - Allmusic Guide

  • "The 'Motor' of this concert was built from the core of the 'Mild Maniac Orchestra' with Volker Kriegel on guitar and Thomas Bettermann on keyboards. Completing the line-up are three extraordinary musicians: The Eberhard Weber on bass, Wolfgang Schlueter on vibraphone and Ralf Huebner on drums. Calm, pending sounds, sequences like movie soundtracks, artful swapping, virtuoso ending in swinging solos and finally far settling into melancholic prevailing moods with subliminal, quiet pleasure, which made everything Volker Kriegel did so distinctive."

  • New studio album from Roye Albrighton and Ron Howden carrying on with the Nektar name.  Since the band reformed last decade, their studio output hasn't lived up to the reputation of the classic 70s era.  This album appears to stop the skid.  Keyboardist Klaus Henatsch has been with the band for some time now.  His keyboard arsenal has that old school sound utilizing Hammond organ at every turn.  Fill-in bassist to the stars Billy Sherwood rounds out the quartet and he also handled production.  While no two Nektar albums sounded exactly alike there was an overriding sound - once you heard a song you immediately were able to identify it as Nektar.  A lot of that had to do with Albrighton's vocals and guitar work.  Time Machine is just that - a trip back in time to the sound of Nektar in the early 70s.  I'm not going to tell you that is will supplant Remember The Future as their magnum opus, but I have to say that this isn't half bad at all and pretty closely approximates the Nektar sound that we all know and loved.  Surprising and satisfying.

  • HDCD remastered edition."The Grateful Dead's fourth title was likewise their first extended concert recording. Spread over two LPs, Live/Dead (1969) finally was able to relay the intrinsic sonic magnificence of a Dead show in real time. Additionally, it unleashed several key entries into their repertoire, including the sidelong epic and Deadhead anthem"Dark Star" as well as wailing and otherwise electrified acidic covers of the Rev. Gary Davis blues standard "Death Don't Have No Mercy" and the R&B rave-up "(Turn on Your) Lovelight." Finally, the conundrum of how to bring a lengthy performance experience to the listener has been solved. The album's four sides provided the palette from which to replicate the natural ebb and flow of a typical Dead set circa early 1969. Tomes have been written about the profound impact of "Dark Star" on the Dead and their audience. It also became a cultural touchstone signifying that rock music was becoming increasingly experimental by casting aside the once-accepted demands of the short, self-contained pop song. This version was recorded on February 27, 1969, at the Fillmore West and is presented pretty much the way it went down at the show. The same is true of the seven remaining titles on Live/Dead. The rousing rendition of "St. Stephen" reinvents the Aoxomoxoa (1968) prototype with rip-roaring thunder and an extended ending which slams into an instrumental rhythmic excursion titled "The Eleven" after the jam's tricky time signature. The second LP began with a marathon cover of "(Turn on Your) Lovelight," which had significant success for both Bobby "Blue" Bland and Gene Chandler earlier in the decade. With Ron "Pigpen" McKernan at the throttle, the Dead barrel their way through the work, reproportioning and appointing it with fiery solos from Garcia and lead vocal raps courtesy of McKernan. "Death Don't Have No Mercy" is a languid noir interpretation of Rev. Gary Davis' distinct Piedmont blues. Garcia's fretwork smolders as his solos sear through the melody. Likewise notable is the criminally underrated keyboard work of Tom Constanten, whose airy counterpoint rises like a departing spirit from within the soul of the song. The final pairing of "Feedback" -- which is what is sounds like it might be -- with the "lowering down" funeral dirge "And We Bid You Goodnight" is true to the way that the band concluded a majority of their performances circa 1968-1969. They all join in on an a cappella derivative of Joseph Spence and the Pinder Family's traditional Bahamian distillation. Few recordings have ever represented the essence of an artist in performance as faithfully as Live/Dead. It has become an aural snapshot of this zenith in The Grateful Dead's 30-year evolution and as such is highly recommended for all manner of enthusiasts." - Allmusic Guide

  • "Esoteric are pleased to announce the reissues of the entire Vertigo label recordings by Jackson Heights, the group founded by Lee Jackson, bass guitarist and vocalist with The Nice. Upon the demise of The Nice, Jackson founded his new band, recording one album for CHARISMA before moving home to the legendary Vertigo label, for whom the band recorded three albums. By this time Lee Jackson had assembled a new line up of Brian Chatton (Keyboards), John McBurnie (Guitar) and Mike Giles (formerly of King Crimson) (drums). This line-up was the band’s finest with The Fifth Avenue Bus being their debut for the Swirl label."
