Although "Close to the edge" gets the plaudits (and rightly so as it is wonderful), the Yes album is my personal fave. The first album I played when I got my first stereo system. Follow that guitar from speaker to speaker !

Had a bit of a Marillion day on Tuesday.

Don’t like this one at all.

This one on the other hand (1st of the Hogarth era) was very good. (1st time I’ve played it.)

Ooo yes, Unfolded Like Staircase is excellent. (Never noticed anyone posting Discipline on here before except for me. Good to see!) :D

This is the other Marillion album I played - very familiar and very good.

Yep - complete with Peter Hammill style vocals. That said, he’s one of a kind!

A perfect album that never ages. Unlike me, unfortunately.

Revisiting this - it really is very good.

Someone on progarchives said....”Here one will find all: marvelous symphonic tunes, folk and balladesque melodies, hard and metallish parts, new classical & romantic & baroque, psych & space tints....”

Lord Rother wrote:Argentinian prog band’s debut album from 2006. They were formed with the aim of creating an audio visual show and by all accounts the shows were quite spectacular.

Symphonic but with lots of twists - bit of tango, lots of violin and quiet piano passages, decent guitar, some heaviness, in large parts instrumental.... it’s a very good mix actually. Vocals are delivered in good English (heavily accented are a bit of a turn-off for me).

William Gray - Living Fossils (and no, I have no idea where the band name comes from, not that anyone was asking as it happens.)

Nth Ascension + Stranger Than Fiction

English band from Blackpool - 4th album, mainly hard neo prog but with plenty of melody. Vocals are slightly unusual with an almost guttural quality though never dirty. After a while the tone gets slightly offputting although by the end I had got past that feeling.

Accomplished and enjoyable, although I slightly prefer the 3rd album In Fine Initium.

Oak - False Memory Archive

Norwegian band’s 2nd album. Wasn’t planned but in many respects it’s quite similar style to Nth Ascension and I have a similar reaction. Decent.



Pushing on to 1,000.....! I’ll get us there. :D
