    Prog from the 2010's

    Disconnected (Airbag, 2016) Disconnected is the fourth studio album of Norwegian progressive rock band Airbag. No further developments, this is pretty much in the same style as their first three albums, with Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree as main influences. But the songs are great (perhaps...

    Crusade 1212 by Dorian Opera, a prog metal masterpiece

    Three years after their very worthwhile debut album No secrets, German prog metal band Dorian Opera have returned with a masterpiece. Crusade 1212 is a fascinating concept album with a tragic opera-like storyline, inspired by the historical Children's crusade. The original four members are still...

    Blue Intermezzzo - Andrew Roussak

    The recently released Blue Intermezzzo is the second album of Andrew Roussak - I have reviewed his debut (No Trespassing) before here. One of my few complaints about that debut was the bewildering mix of styles - well, for his second, he has opted for a solo piano record which indeed makes for a...
