Lazy Fifty: Devil On His Day Off (2024) single

Here we have the seventh release in Troy’s 10/10/10 project of ten albums in ten different genres in ten years. This time credited to Tory Kingi & The Room Service, each album has a different credited band (although often the same musicians, this time it includes...

Todd Mosby: Land of Enchantment (2023)

No-one can accuse guitarist Todd Mosby of skimping on the musicians on this album as he has brought in Prince bassist Rhonda Smith, woodwind player Tom Scott (Joni Mitchell, Quincy Jones, Frank Sinatra), drummer Vinnie Colaiuta (Herbie Hancock, Jeff Beck, Frank...

Peter Xifaras: Fusion (2023)

This album finds Peter providing guitar and keyboards, and he is joined by Shunzo Ohno (trumpet), Xander Nichting (violin), Max Gerl (bass), Scott Jackson (drums and percussion) along with the Czech National Symphony, Orchestra on a few numbers. Now, I enjoy fusion as...

S.C.R.A.M. (Safety Control Rod Axe Man) is the solo project of Pranjal Tiwari who is probably best known for his work with the long-running cult doom metal band Cardinal Wyrm, Finnish-language hardcore band Ransu's Revenge, and more. Over the last few years he has...

Matt Smith’s World: Into The Light (2023)

I must confess that I am sent a lot of music which can take time to get inside, whether it be avant-garde, technical death metal, jazz or prog, so sometimes the ears relax into a smile when they realise what is being played can be enjoyed the first time through...

Madre Vaca: Knights of the Round Table (2023)

When I was young, I was fascinated by the stories of King Arthur, Galahad, Guinevere and others, and I am sure this is why I named my first GSD, Merlin. Then of course came Rick Wakeman and his astonishingly ambitious and incredible first two albums, and from then on,...

Mac Gollehon & the Hispanic Mechanics: Bite of the Street (2023)

Trumpeter Mac Gollehon is one of the most in-demand musicians around, having played on literally thousands of records, including more than two hundred gold and platinum albums since the 1970’s, including his decade-plus run in Duran Duran. He’s widely known for his...

JOHN HOLDEN (UK) Proximity & Chance

Since 2018, this composer and multi-instrumentalist has not only been consistently delivering standout albums that I am proud to possess and review, all very highly rated but also because the recipe ingredients and manpower invited happen to vary from album to album....

RETURNED TO THE EARTH (UK) Stalagmite Steeple

The previous album “Fall of the Watcher” released in 2022 made my heart flutter so deeply that an EKG was not necessary in determining the workings of my arteries. So, what… I fell in love again! That is what romantic progressive ‘pop’ music can do to the melancholic...

OCEANS OF NIGHT (USA) Mindstorm

When discovering rock back in the very early 70s as a teenager, the exploding hormones certainly found a haven within loud and crunchy power riffs, being raised on Deep Purple, Sabbath, and Led Zep, to name only the obvious. Yes, banging heads was fun and more...

CELESTE (ITALY) Echi di un Future Passato

Two words to start: flute and mellotron. If for whatever odd reason, these two instruments are not among your favourites, please stop reading promptly. Phew, now that we got that out of the way, Celeste will always be remembered for their luminous 1976 debut album...

VIOLENT JASPER (GERMANY) Control

The much-vaunted German group Sylvan decide to go on a mini-sabbatical, subsequent to releasing their latest album, “One to Zero” in 2021, a masterful album of the highest order. Longtime keyboardist Volker Soehl and guitarist Johnny Beck decided to launch a new...

AGE OF DISTRACTION (UK) A Game of Whispers

Connections, connections, connections. The progressive rock community’s greatest attribute is how closely linked everyone seems to be, with geography being no longer an issue. New projects seem to blossom organically, as a simple e-mail or text can germinate into a...

CRISTIANO VARISCO (BRAZIL) Aline

There is nothing more enjoyable for the Rogue than receiving review requests from artists around the world, who invariably deserve very much to be heard and, in most cases, applauded for their talent, often far removed from the ultra-packaged, hyper-polished fluff of...

ANDROID (HUNGARY) Wordless Scriptum

I am totally proud of being a huge fan of this Hungarian band since their East of Eden debut in 2009 , not because we share the same language and culture but mainly because they have progressed over the years, not only constantly fine tuning their craft but also for...

RIVERSEND (USA) same

What makes the perpetual search for a new source of musical pleasure such a thrill, is when you land on something with zero background, or any kind of advance notice. Such is my chance meeting on an innocuously dull day with Riversend, absently surfing the proggier...

INNER PROSPEKT (ITALY) Unusual Movements

As I was imputing this latest offering from Inner Prospekt into my database (I have so many albums I need to keep track of them all), I was stunned to visualize that I have all 14 studio albums from this amazing musician I first discovered when he was /is still a...
