CD Reviews
Entering the Spectra
Review by Josh Turner
This is supposed to be a solo project by Jonas Reingold, but it really stands alone as a complete band. If it were good it would defy expectations.

In a Perfect World
Review by Gary Hill
Karmakanic’s latest release is a killer progressive rock album that combines a lot of sounds into something that’s quite unique.

Wheel of Life
Review by Josh Turner
To say this disc would be as good as the band's debut would be saying a lot. The first one offered a variety of styles.

Karmakanik - Live at RoSfest, April, 2006
Review by Josh Turner
Karmakanic were very good, but in my heart of hearts I expected more from them. After Krister Jonzon and Jonas Reingold blew away the crowd with The Tangent in the previous year, they returned to these hallowed grounds wrapped up in this different package.

The Flower Kings - Alive on Planet Earth
Review by Gary Hill
This live album by The Flower Kings shows that they are not just a studio phenomenon. The disc should be evidence to the prog fan that this band is one to catch live as well.

The Flower Kings - BetchaWannaDanceStoopid
Review by Josh Turner
How can this be strictly improvisational jams? It's not possible.

The Flower Kings - Flower Power
Review by Gary Hill
The Flower Kings sound contains elements and leanings of the classic prog of the '70's, but is definitely still their own. Since the Stardust We Are disc, the band's writing skills seem to have matured.

Nick D' Virgilio - Invisible
Review by Gary Hill

On the one hand, Nick D'Virgilio has been out of Spock's Beard for a while now. That means that perhaps the mentions of the band and comparisons aren't entirely appropriate.

The Flower Kings - Live In Palatine, IL, 2002
Review by Gary Hill
Talking to those in attendance after this show it is obvious that there were two types of fans in the audience. On the one hand there were those who ate up the entire set, savoring, and even reveling in the improvisational jamming that was spread throughout the band's set.

The Flower Kings - Paradox Hotel
Review by Steve Alspach
You gotta admire the Flower Kings' work ethic. On the heels of Roine's solo album "Wall Street Voodoo" comes the latest album from Sweden's no. 1 progressive group, and it's a 2-CD set to boot.

The Tangent - Stars and Pyramids
Review by Josh Turner
If you missed them at ROSfest 2005, you missed the best thing they've done so far. If you haven't even seen them live at all, it is essential you hear this disc.

The Flower Kings - The Rainmaker
Review by Gary Hill
The Flower Kings return with their latest dishing of their particular flavor of progressive rock. The group typically has a style that is very hard for journalists to keep up with because it changes so briefly.

The Flower Kings - The Sum of No Evil
Review by Josh Turner
When I receive a Flower Kings’ album, it’s a personal event of the utmost importance. The only problem is finding a long-enough lunch, a shady tree to idle under, or a stretch of asphalt that’s sufficiently-straight.

The Flower Kings - Unfold The Future

Sweden's most prolific progressive band returns with another two-CD album of songs that shows the band's willingness to try any and all musical styles. Fans of this band will find this to be another excellent album in the band's catalogue.
