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.

  • This is yet another iteration of the splintered New Trolls.  This version of the band features drummer Gianni Belleno and keyboardist Maurizo Salvi.  Although the albums occassionally wanders off into a more pop friendly direction, for the most part this one stays true to the band's prog period.  Salvi offers up some nice ornate, baroque stylings on keys.

  • Formed from the ashes of the late great Polish neo-prog band Collage comes Satellite. The mastermind behind Satellite is drummer Wojtek Szadkowski who was the principal songwriter for Collage. Enlisting many of his former bandmates including singer Robert Amirian, Satellite has easily set a new standard for neoprog in this century. This flowing melodic neoprog hasmore than enough complexity and playing to satisfy old school progheads as well. Guitarist Mirek Gil at times reminds me of Steve Hackett but perhaps even more so Steve Rothery. The title song is an epic masterpiece that will be regarded as a classic in years to come. Overall the vibe of the album reminds me of Marillion's Misplaced Childhood. Bottom line is that if you are a fan of Collage this is like listening to an improved version. I've always gone on record as not being much of a neo-prog fan but Collage was a cut above the pack. With Satellite, Szadkowski has raised the bar. The cover art was created by Mark Wilkinson who was responsible for all the great Marillion sleeves. Easily a best of 2003 candidate. Highest recommendation.

  • Mind's Eye is a Swedish quartet who combine metal, rock, jazz/fusion, and even latin styles into one. Their guitar driven sound fuses melody with power and technical complexity. They experiment with different odd-meters, keys and arrangements to create open minded music. Perhaps similar to two other Swedish bands - Treasure Land and Lion's Share, their complex arrangements share traits of technical bands like Sieges Even and Psychotic Waltz. Guitarist Fredrik Grnberger's guitar sound is quite original blending elements of shredders like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani with fusion pioneer Allan Holdsworth. Although his solos are the focal point of the band they never lose sight of the song - this is not an exercise in guitar solo excess.

  • 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.

  • Tenth studio album from the reconstituted verison of Focus led by Thijs van Leer.  Returning is original drummer Pierre van der Linden.  Bobby Jacobs handles bass and Menno Gootjes lead guitar.  X doesn't break any new ground.  This sounds just like classic Focus - van Leer concentrates on flute and Hammond organ and vocals.  Pure prog with strong jazzy overtones in places.  Neat cover art and logo courtesy of Roger Dean.  Highly recommended.

  • HDCD remaster."It's called Van Halen II not just because it's the band's second album but because it's virtually a carbon copy of their 1978 debut, right down to how the band showcases their prowess via covers and how Eddie Van Halen gets a brief, shining moment to showcase his guitar genius. This time, he does his thing on acoustic guitars on the remarkable "Spanish Fly," but that temporary shift from electrics to acoustics is the only true notable difference in attack here; in every other way, Van Halen II feels like its predecessor, even if there are subtle differences. First, there's only one cover this time around -- Betty Everett's "You're No Good," surely learned from Linda Ronstadt -- and this feels both heavier and lighter than the debut. Heavier in that this sounds big and powerful, driven by mastodon riffs that aim straight of the gut. Lighter in that there's a nimbleness to the attack, in that there are pop hooks to the best songs, in that the group sounds emboldened by their success so they're swaggering with a confidence that's alluring. If the classic ratio is slightly lighter than on the debut, there are no bad songs and the best moments here -- two bona fide party anthems in "Dance the Night Away" and "Beautiful Girls," songs that embody everything the band was about -- are lighter, funnier than anything on the debut, showcases for both Diamond Dave's knowing shuck and jive and Eddie's phenomenal gift, so natural it seems to just flow out of him. At this point, it's hard not to marvel at these two frontmen, and hard not to be sucked into the vortex of some of the grandest hard rock ever made." - Allmusic Guide

  • 1975's Warrior On The Edge Of Time finally sees a reissue courtesy of Esoteric Recordings.  This iconic album features the classic lineup of Dave Brock, Nik Turner, Lemmy, Simon House, Simon King, and Alan Powell.  The album was reissued on CD years ago and has been out of print for a couple of decades.  The band or their management never gave clear explanation at to why the album remained out of print.  One assumes a rights issue that remained unresolved.  This newly remastered version is transferred from the original analogue master tapes and features one bonus track - the b side "Motorhead".  In addition you get a second CD with a new stereo mix from Steven Wilson.  This also contains 5 bonus tracks - one of which is previously unreleased.  If that isn't enough you get a DVD with a 5.1 mix from Steven Wilson, as well as his new stereo mix in 24/96 AND the original stereo mix in 24/96.  Don't know about you but I'm keeping one of these for myself!

  • "Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the next release in the continuing series of reissues of the entire catalogue by the legendary classical rock band SKY. Formed in 1979, Sky brought together the worlds of rock and classical music in a highly successful and inspiring way. Featuring the gifted talents of guitarist JOHN WILLIAMS, percussionist TRISTAN FRY, legendary bass player HERBIE FLOWERS, former Curved Air keyboard player FRANCIS MONKMAN and guitarist KEVIN PEEK, Sky recorded their debut album at Abbey Road studios in the early months of 1979. The band’s self-titled debut reached the UK top ten in May 1979 and went on to achieve Platinum status in the UK and was also a major hit in Europe and Australia. Also a huge live attraction, SKY released their second album in April 1980. "SKY 2” was a fine achievement, featuring the hit single "Toccata”, and topped the UK album charts upon its release. For the band’s third album, STEVE GRAY replaced Francis Monkman on keyboards, but the band continued their run of success as SKY 3 reached the UK top ten upon its release in March 1981. The album’s success followed a highly memorable concert by the band at Westminster Abbey in London on February 24th 1981, which was recorded and broadcast by BBC Television.SKY’s line-up remained the same for this, the band’s fourth album "SKY 4: Forthcoming” released in April 1982. Another successful chart album, "SKY 4: Forthcoming” has now been remastered and includes a companion DVD (NTSC / Region Free) of SKY’s live set for the BBC TV programme "Night Music”, broadcast in July 1982 (the first ever release of this classic television appearance). The original album artwork is fully restored and the booklet features a new essay."

  • "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."

  • "If Metallica and Slayer invented speed metal, Anthrax brought it to the East Coast and imbued it with the attitude and excitement of New York hardcore. Among the Living is, without a doubt, their finest hour--a roaring, adrenaline-pumped collection of flailing beats, precise, razor-edged riffs and shout-along refrains. Unlike most full-throttle metal vocalists of the era, Joey Belladonna chose to sing as well as shout, giving songs like "Among the Living," "Indians" and "Efilnikcufecin" ("nice fuckin' life" spelled backwards) a decided melodic edge. Yet Scott Ian and Dan Spitz's buzzsaw guitar flurries, and Charlie Benante's insistent drumming, prevented the songs from ever degenerating into the run-of-the-mill heavy metal they so despised. "
