Not exactly prog but quite beatiful. (From the new album.)

I bow to your superior knowledge. You are correct.

Thanks for posting. It is so rare that I even want to post video that I can never remember how to do it and people have told me many times. I'm hopeless. :D I

I've actually owned most of this and I've never owned a lot of Crimson. I'm not familiar with #10 so I can't comment on that one. I would probably pick a track off of Beat or Three Of A Perfect Pair. It sounds like I've managed to focus on their highlights according to this one source at least. I'm not surprised it is weighted to the first half of their career. They were more unique when they began. Don't laugh but their music had more soul in the beginning.

I don't know the last two, as I stop at Red. Of the first eight, I would drop the pretty hideous Ladies Of The Road, and replace it with the title track from the album it came from, Islands. I'd also replace 21st Century Schoizod Man, with In The Court Of The Crimson King. And The Night Shift would go, in favour of The Great Deciever. I'd have to make room for I Talk To The Wind and Trio, but otherwise, a pretty good list :D.

I've played this 3 or 4 times over the last few days and it's getting the thumbs up from me.

Robust stuff?

I think so

Good work Lord R

Good to see another BBT convert in "C." whoever you are.

Now, 1st play of another new album, the well-received Lonely Robot - The Big Dream. (John Mitchell's band - he of It Bites, Arena and Frost*.)

Acid folk with a goth vibe going on - never heard of them before this week but this is an excellent album.

Sure it's somewhat derivative of late 60s stuff, but good to hear it done better. Recommended.

New young Italian band's debut.

Very promising; good tunes, very Genesis sounding keys, lyrics in English are a bit forced, but the singer has a decent voice.

Definitely a band to watch (for me).

Cellar Noise - Alight

Ascent - Triage

Image

Rother hipped me to this mediocre, nay, repellent, slice of Nu Prog.

Ascent are four lads (Harriett Clement - Tubs, Ian Masterpiece - Tubs, Doc Loam - Tubs, and Thomas "Tubs" Beard - Tubs, Synth and Sackbut) unafraid to unleash a thirty-minute epic of hey-nonnying, time-signature-switching disgrace, lads not bothered that they sound like Marillion being strangled by the ghost of Ian Anderson's Flute Teacher.

Robust stuff.

A long haul at 5 hours but any fans of TD-era Berlin School-music who like to travel back to these heady days and catch some unreleased 'new Tangerine Dream'- music should check out this:
https://www.mixcloud.com/Spiritland/ulr ... pril-2017/

Curated/mixed by Ulrich Schnauss. Really good stuff in there.
