Mike Keneally - Wooden Smoke 2001
8.0
Instrumental Minimalistic Prog Rock
A very calm and gentle album compared to Mike's other albums which are much more experimental and quirky. Acoustic Guitar and Piano are the dominating instruments, some tracks with drums/bass, some without, and of course there's Mike's vocals and his "unusual as usual" songwriting.

Mike Keneally - hat. 1992

Avant-Garde Prog Rock
What a hilarious roller coaster ride! The whole album is a relentless mix of musically demanding compositions which a heavy dose of improvisation. The whole album is constructed like a radio show - it consists of many short tracks and a few longer ones, and they all contain short bits of "musical narration", the kind of which only Mike Keneally produces - for example, right at the beginning of the album you hear him saying "thank you for buying hat." by means of carefully arranged multi-layered vocal arrangements. Simply hilarious!

Mike Keneally - The Universe Will Provide 2004
8.7
Instrumental Prog Rock
A very nice fusion of a fully fledged orchestra and rock band. Well, not exactly your typical rock band if you know Mike Keneally. Quirky and weird are words which begin to describe his style, it's all very creative and resourceful and the collaboration with the orchestra works amazingly well ... the guitar, bass and drums blend perfectly with the other instruments, reminding of the Zappa albums where he used a big ensemble, only that in this case even more instruments are used.

Mike Keneally - Dancing 2000
9.0
Eclectic Prog Rock/Independent
This is one of the more accessible releases by Mike Keneally. The album is a fascinating mix of genres and influences. Mike is backed here by a number of musicians. On stage MK & Beer for Dolphins usually are a 3 piece band, but here they're more like 8 piece - and then some. Some of the songs are really weird and Zappa-esque, but some are more in the Fusion style, and some are quite plain. But they're all really good, and an excellent starting point to get into the weird and amazing world of Mike Keneally.
