I’m a freelance writer/blogger that started doing reviews nine years ago. I’m a fan of Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Heavy Metal, and Jazz Rock. Also a musician for 20 years. Music has been my friend since listening to the Beatles when I was a little boy. It wasn’t until I discovered Pink Floyd 20 years ago and it changed my life. Geek also, but the Progressive genre has still kept me going from day one. And there’s no stop sign for me. I also have a blog site in which I also do reviews since 2008 entitled, Music from the Other Side of the Room.

Nick D’Virgilio – Invisible

I hate to say this, but why would Nick D’Virgilio want to name an album called Invisible? That I have absolutely no idea. I had found it to be dragging, tedious, and an unpleasant experience I had to endure this year. It may work in some areas for Nick …

Jon Durant & Robert Jürjendal – Across the Evening

Jon & Robert have upped their craftsmanship to take listeners on exotic landscapes.

Magenta – Masters Of Illusion

I would love to think that six masters in the horror genre, would be thrilled to have this album dedicated to them.

Soft Machine – Live at the Baked Potato

If you’re very new to the Soft Machine’s music, Live at the Baked Potato is perhaps a great introduction to get you into the band’s work.

Kansas – The Absence of Presence

For me, Kansas aren’t just a band, but a family as well… The train for them will never, ever stop.

Rick Wakeman is a true visionary, a maestro, and a storyteller that has brought The Red Planet to life.

The music itself isn’t just your typical progressive rock album, but it’s surreal, nightmarish, insanity, avant-garde, doomy, and right in your face.

While it may not be everyone’s cup of coffee per se, Crane has come a long way to bring her debut solo album to life.

Kavus Torabi – Hip To The Jag

Hip To The Jag is Torabi’s crown jewel. He doesn’t pull any punches bringing his own music to life with his debut solo album.

Argo Vals – In Loving Memory Of

Argo Vals is someone you may or may not be familiar with. Not only that he’s from Estonia, but he’s also a composer, working with electronics, and a guitarist. What Vals would do is to take his music by going through these sudden movements between the …
