Any thoughts?

The Ladder I have not heard in years but recall being underwhelmed. I bought Magnification and saw that tour, but would struggle to name any of the tracks! Not one of my favourites then!

Haven't heard either of these two for a long time, almost forgotten how great TB is.

Having only recently popped up on Spotify this is a 1st time listen to Jadis for me.

Most enjoyable.

And another debut listen this bright and chilly morning.

Cressida is a band I’ve not seen mentioned on here (to my recollection) which is surprising seeing as they are from the (supposed) “classic era” of prog, this self-titled album being their debut release, from 1970. (Only released 1 other album.)

Again, most enjoyable!

They have been mentioned before my friend by the mighty C himself, probably on the previous Prog Corner or a 'Something for the Weekend' choice long ago. On his recommendation I purchased their albums, as usual the recommendation held up.

Reading prog band from the 80s.

This is by some distance their highest ranked album by the looks of it.

inspired by the post above & the recent conversation about The Target, I'm giving this ago. I'd left Reading by the time Twelth Night were active, this is my first hearing. First three minutes have passed well.

I like that album a lot. I chose one track as the tie breaker in the Prog Cup one year and nobody liked it.

Ken’s Novel - Domain of Oblivion

2nd album from Belgian band, released in 2004 and then they were no more. Never heard of them until this week but having played it a couple of times they were pretty useful.

London band’s 2nd album - some good moments but overall doesn’t live up the the reviews that sucked me in. The female vocalist has been variously described as wonderful and remarkable.... I found her a bit harsh on the lugholes personally.
