One supposes pointing out that this comment reeks of complacent snobbery would be a pointless exercise?

Anyway, Purple rule. Zep sucks.

So there.

And if someone burnt all my Zeppelin albums, I wouldn't really be that arsed. Now THAT'S complacency ;) . I actually wish I liked hard rock because there's so much music I've missed out on, but it just doesn't "rock" my boat. Most of my school pals loved rock and I'd be skulking in the corner with my copy of "Future Days".

Delightful, their first four were superb in my book, the fifth was pretty good as well. Diminishing returns after that. Saw them live in their heyday, wonderful.

A good call

I'll go to seven - just

The 1975 reunion album with Sandy is very good though and a couple from the 80s

Babbacombe Lee was the last album I truly enjoyed by them, but what a run of albums up to then

I must play this again. It's probably been a decade since I played half of it.

Not my fave Genesis album....

New Trolls - Concerto Grosso Per I
I'm not usually one for symphonic progressive rock, but this ain't bad. Supposedly the first such Italian effort in that rather niche genre. Lyrics in English, drum solos, Hendrixian guitar, lengthy expositions, etc. The Vivaldi-type strings initially welcome the listener and all of side one is aces. Whether or not it's all live I can't tell. The liner notes are in Japanese. I'm sure some of you here have this.

Looks interesting - thanks Matt

Talking of Italian prog - Banco del Mutuo Soccorso - probably my fave Italian prog band

Try this Matt:



Full of music

Fucked Up - Queen of Hearts

Another band that surprisingly won a Prog Cup round for me last time around. (Not this track.)

2 versions, firstly the album track itself, then the official video release with school children providing the vocals. Great video this, doing something very unusual and inventive.





Enjoyable - thank you Bob

The video is excellent

Glass Hammer - Anthology 2 2011-2020

They don’t release their albums on streaming services so I don’t get to hear much of their stuff, but this is the 2nd anthology collection to be put on Spotify and it is excellent.

Very Yes like in places, in fact the vocalist in early 21st Century was Jon Davison who sounds so much like Jon Anderson he joined Yes in 2012.

Last FM shows I played this 3 times back in October 2013, my post on here at the time indicates I found it “interesting and rewarding”.

And then I completely forgot about it.

Thanks for refreshing the old memory - back on current playlist for a revisit.

Leprous - Aphelion

New release, Leprous are never exactly easy on the ear (one of their tracks had a beating on latest Prog Cup) but they are always (to reuse recently used phrase) interesting and rewarding, and hugely progressive. There was nothing like them back in the halcyon days so I doubt anyone could call them derivative.

The voice is mesmerising. Smooth and soaring with the occasional return to a Cookie Monster roar.

Image

This is the closing track - the video flits about far too much for my liking but it’s a good indicator of their music.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s weird that I like this lot as growling vocals turn me off completely, but there’s something about the music that grabs me and won’t let go.

Small doses maybe but sometimes the energy blast is just what I need.
