Panic Room - Skin

Welsh band formed from an early incarnation of Karnataka with vocals from Anne Marie Helder who provided solo support on Steve Hackett’s Genesis Revisited tour 2 or 3 years ago.

It’s very pleasant without setting the pulse racing.

Composer and multi instrumentalist Graham Dunnington is Looking-Glass Lantern.

His 2nd album was The Hound of The Baskervilles.

Well, it’s just about ok but the stunning review I read in Progarchives is well OTT.

I'd hope more effort was put in to the music than the crappy cover. Fuck me that is BAD.

Too smooth for the BCB Prog Canon?

I’ve tried a couple of the highest rated albums but didn’t really do it for me.

(And the singles have been played so often they are just irritating now.)

New release - I appreciate it’s probably not what real fans would recognise as PFM but although on 1st listen there’s not a lot to really get the teeth into it’s a pretty decent set of songs.

PFM - Emotional Tattoos

Wobbler haven’t really done it for me before but gave this new release a twirl and it is absolutely excellent! Retro prog for sure, derivative? Maybe. Who cares?

One of the clutch of Dutch symphonic prog bands I really enjoy.

This is Silhouette’s 5th album, The World is Flat..... And Other Alternative Facts. Having listened a few times now I’m not sure it’s quite up to previous albums but enjoyable nonetheless.

A great album.

I saw them live support Tull with Procol harum at royal Albert hall in 1970

Still my favourite after all these years.
I also played the latest two, "Wolflight" and "The Night Siren" which are rather good, but this is the best.
