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.


Looks like they needed a quick album cover and just slapped something together in Microsoft Word.

Spectral Mornings is better than Defector,
and Please Don't Touch is better than Spectral Mornings.

Actually some of his more recent albums are much better than Highly Strung

Because he let his ex-wife Kim Poor design them and she's pretty terrible. Mind you since the divorce his covers have been no better.

Cosmograf - The Hay Man Dreams

I admire Robin Armstrong’s output, as a multi instrumentalist self-recording, self-performing and self-releasing his early albums he has built a reputation and now has input from a whole batch of prog Luminaries on his albums.

That said there has always been a little something missing for me and it irritates me that I can’t quite put my finger on it.

This one is relatively short and sweet and probably my favourite of his albums. Maybe I’ll “get” the others in due course.

Tuomas Holopainen, leader of Finnish prog metal band Nightwish, released this solo album a couple of years ago. Not bad as it happens, very different from the band’s output. I’ll give it another play or 2 I’m sure.

New release from one of the best Polish bands, this one marking the departure after 18 years of distinctive vocalist Lukasz “Gall” Galeziowsk.

Melodic symphonic prog with excellent lead guitar and plenty of sax which I do enjoy.

Millenium - “44 Minutes”

Dave Kerzner - Static

Not as instant as New World, or the Sound of Contact album Dimensionaut he did with Phil Collins’ son but plenty of decent tunes.

Kerzner's reforming with Sound Of Contact at CttE next year. Cosmonaut is one hell of an album.
