So very good,......with Jon Anderson as well! How could it fail ? Well, if you were expecting swathes of mellotrons, forget it. If you want a band that was never afraid to push boundaries, this is for you.

New album from US band Presto Ballet.

Nothing startling but another decent release. They remind me a lot of Spock’s Beard, and are at least as good.

New one for me - US band Savatage and their 1998 release, The Wake Of Magellan.

Symphonic prog metal, not too ott, but a bit predictable. Nice guitar and piano in the quieter bits, not too heavy with the metal, reasonable vocals.... not a bad album at all but the lack of surprises counts againstit a bit.

Wouldn’t class myself as a particular fan of John Martyn (I didn’t even know his real name was Iain McGeachy until today) but this is nice (inspired by recommendations on another thread about the man’s music).
