Out of the Depths of the Sea...

This is my progressive rock review blog! I will review all of the latest prog rock CDs (and other CDs) that I acquire and will give my opinion of it and my score based on a 1-10 scale. If there is a dry spell where I don't get many new CDs for a while, I will give what I call a "Spotlight Review" where I will showcase an album from my collection that I consider fantastic and an essential album for all prog fans.

I will give a listen to an album at least 3 times before I give my opinion of it on this blog. At the end of the year, I hope to look back through this blog in order to determine the best albums of the year. Just to give you an idea of my music taste here are my top ten albums of last year:

10. The Garden- Unitopia
9. The Bedlam In Goliath- The Mars Volta
8. Not As Good As The Book- The Tangent
7. Who's The Boss In The Factory?- Karmakanic
6. Watershed- Opeth
5. The Tall Ships- It Bites
4. 01011001- Ayreon
3. Blomljud- Moon Safari
2. Experiments In Mass Appeal- Frost*
1. Lifeline- Neal Morse

Some of these albums may even be featured in one of my "Spotlight Reviews". I also may do many other things that I'm considering (such as showcasing favorite songs or having random countdown lists), but they will always relate to music- mostly progressive rock. Music, specifically prog rock, is a huge passion of mine, and I'm excited to share my excitement for this music with everybody. Prog rock did not die in the seventies, it is alive and well right here and now. So, come and ride the Leviathan- it is going to be exciting (and a little dangerous, mua ha ha!).

  1. I think you should spotlight Crazy Horses on Lifeline's bonus disc. ;) So, how often are you going to do song reviews? I'm personally more interested in song reviews than album reviews because I'm worried that album reviews will be too general, while song reviews will be more specific.
