CD Reviews
Dancing on A'A
Review by Gary Hill
I got this disc after having heard quite a few other Birdsongs albums from the catalog. Yes, the music here is consistent with the rest of their material; jazzy free form progressive rock excursions that are often hard to classify.

Dawn of the Cycads
Review by Gary Hill
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic are a unique outfit. They have a definite classical edge and lots of jazz in their mix.

Faultline
Review by Gary Hill
This is arguably the most accessible disc from Birdsongs of the Mesozoic. That said, don't expect to hear the latest pop or rock sounds here.

Petrophonics
Review by G. W. Hill
If you are a fan of off kilter, instrumental prog with jazzy overtones; do yourself a favor and check out this band. The sound is really all their own, although comparisons to early King Crimson are justified.

Pyroclastics
Review by Gary Hill
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic is an unusual band. While they practice an adventurous form of progressive instrumental rock - at times closer to jazz or classical - they still manage to come across as playful and catchy.

The Iridium Controversy
Review by Gary Hill
Birdsongs of the Mesozoic definitely have class. The group has always combined classical instrumentation with more rock and jazz oriented compositions into a musical style that is nearly impossible to pigeon hole.

with Oral Moses - Extreme Spirituals
Review by Gary Hill
Progressive rock, experimental in nature, has always flirted with unique combinations. Rick Wakeman’s IceCapades type version of the Myths and Legends of King Arthur... album and Jon Anderson’s EarthMotherEarth ballet are two examples that immediately come to mind.

Various Artists - Got Prog? - Sampler 1
Review by Greg Olma
Sampler compilations are always sketchy endeavors. I for one would not want to compile one myself. My tastes are far too wide and I would be thinking of what I like and not what I thought fits best.
