Ghost of Hope
Review by Gary Hill
The Residents' brand of sound is clearly not progressive rock in the traditional sense of the kind of music prog bands were doing in the 1970s.

I Am a Resident
Review by Gary Hill

This is intriguing album. Then again, can't you say that of anything from The Residents?

Intruder
Review by Gary Hill

The list is getting rather crowded, but this a contender for my best of 2018 list. Then again, you can pretty much count on The Residents for releasing music that works well for me.

Present The Bunny Boy
Review by Gary Hill
I know a lot of people are probably going to quibble with my putting The Residents in under progressive rock. I have to say their form of weirdness really isn’t far from RIO (Rock In Opposition).

The Big Bubble
Review by Gary Hill

The third (although it's called the fourth in the trilogy) in a planned series of albums from The Residents, this is my favorite of the three. It's much more vocal based (in fact, only one track is sans vocals), but the vocals are strange.

The Mark of the Mole
Review by Gary Hill
When this was released in 1981 it was to be part of an ambitious project, the Mole Trilogy. It was to be an epic tale of two colliding cultures told through a series of albums.

The Mole Show Live At The Roxy, 1982
Review by Gary Hill

This, as you can probably gather, is a live album from 1982. The Residents are captured in all their weirdness and in fine form.

The Residents' Mole Box
Review by Gary Hill

This new box set is really great. Over the course of several years in the 1980s The Residents set out to record and release a multi-album concept project.

The Tunes of Two Cities
Review by Gary Hill

The second album of a planned series that were intended to work as an extensive concept work, this is a bit more accessible than its predecessor. There is definitely more jazz in the mix, too.
