Comedy of Errors - Fanfare And Fantasy 2013
9.8
Symphonic Neo Prog Rock
This album combines great symphonic rock, neo influences
with classical music. A Gailliard is a medieval (renaissance)
dance. The whole album is a great symponic adventure

WolverineListen - Communication Lost 2011
9.4
Symphonic Prog Doom Metal/Hard Rock
This album is so beautiful, there is no way to describe it. Metal mixed with melodic pop...never poppy though...the themes of the songs are sad, but uplifting in a way... the music is between metal and soft rock...the vocals are the best I know...the lyrics are great...best album of 2011 upto now...

Atmospheric Neo Prog Rock
This album is stellar! If you like Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree, then you HAVE to get this one. The track Homesick I-III is for me already track of the year....can't get much better than that...

David Minasian - Random Acts Of Beauty 2010
9.5
Symphonic Prog Rock
David Minasian succeeds in making a great symphonic record, everything fits here. One of the best albums of 2010, if you love Moody Blues, Camel or Steve Hackett solo.

GazpachoListen - Missa Atropos 2010
9.0
Gazpacho did it again, they made a great album, 3 in a row now... I got this album at the Lorelei prog festival, almost 3 months before the official release date...If you like Night and Tick Tock, you should get this one as well!

Mystery - Beneath the Veil of Winter’s Face 2007
9.0
Neo Prog Rock
Because of "One Among The Living" I bought this album too, and it's also great neo prog. The only difficulty I have with this album is that the production is much less than the production of "One Among The Living", the music is just as good.

Peter GabrielListen - Scratch My Back 2010
5.5
Generally I only comment on albums I like. This is one I don't like. I post it here only to show that I don't like everything....

North Atlantic OscillationListen - Grappling Hooks 2010
7.5
English/British Prog Rock
Good debut album. The music has some resemblance to bands like Oceansize, The Pineapple Thief, Pure Reason Revolution. Might be classified as "Post-progressive Rock"

AnathemaListen - We're Here Because We're Here 2010
9.3
English/British Poetic Prog Post Metal/Rock
We've got a winner here! The style didn't change much from the "Natural Disaster" album, but this album contains no filler, all tracks are top the only somewhat weaker track I can spot is "Get off Get Out". This album is a classic which will stand the test of time.

Spock's BeardListen - X 2010
8.8
Symphonic Prog Rock
This is a return to form of Spock's Beard: Much better than the previous records, on par with V. It's jazzy symphonic rock (don't know where to put the jazzy part in the tag editor...) and I think it's a great record.

HakenListen - Aquarius 2010
9.0
Prog Metal/Rock
Great album and debut! This is metal mixed with jazzy influences. There are a few growls here but don't let it take you away from the music, it's great (like Opeth...) Any lover of Opeth will love this also.

Martigan - Vision 2009
9.5
Neo Prog Rock
Big surprise for me, and new find of the year 2009 so far this mixture of Marillion (Fish era) and Galahad with superb quality (symphonic) neo prog. The singer has a voice which reminds me strongly of Cousins of the Strawbs!What a great album!

GazpachoListen - Night 2007
10.0
Neo Prog Rock
This is the best album I heard in a long time. I'm completely overwhelmed by it. This is definitely a masterpiece. The tags here don't do it right, it should be something like post neo prog. I could describe the music as a mixture of Radiohead, Talk Talk and Marillion but that doesn't do this unique album right. The album is actually one track, split up in 5 pieces. It's a concept album about sleep and dream. It is  creative, coherent and marvelous music which doesn't fail in all the 53 minutes, and in the end leaves you wanting just one thing: To hear it again.

The Aurora ProjectListen - ....Unspoken Words 2005
7.8
Spacey Prog-Related Metal
The music on this album is quite good, it
resembles somewhat Porcupine Tree (Stupid Dream, in
Absentia). However, there is very much talking bullsh*t 
in between the rather good musical tracks.

Vanden PlasListen - Christ.O 2006
8.5
Metal
This is a good metal album (PA 4 stars). The best tracks imo are " January Sun " (excellent!) and Christ O and Silently. The rest is not bad either, but somewhat less. Some tracks are somewhat cheesy metal (e.g. Wish you were here which starts out nice, but quickly becomes boring). I don't like the version of "Gethsemane" very much, I think the original with Ian Gillan in Jesus Christ Superstar is better. The singer just does not hit the emotion of the song enough, it's too polished, it should be more raw.

La Maschera Di Cera - LuxAde 2006
9.6
Symphonic Prog Rock
The best album upto now of 2006 IMO. This is high quality
symphonic rock. Also the vocalist is excellent, he reminds
me somewhat of Gabriel in his better years. The music has
a hint of a mixture of ELP and Genesis, but with a strong
Italian flavour to it.

Neil Young (& Crazy Horse) - Live Rust 1979, Live
9.3
Non-Prog Rock
This is IMO one of the best Live albums of all times. It start
with an acoustic set. Then from the middle of the album the
electric guitars come out and the album really rocks! This is
one album I wish I could judge only for the album, not the
individual tracks. Overall it's so much better than the
individual tracks. Also, stuff like progressiveness,
experimentality and technicality don't mean much to me
here...it just makes me want to sing along and jump! PLAY
IT LOUD!
