Terra Incognita: A Line in the Sand
Review by Gary Hill
I continue to be astounded with the quality of music coming out in 2010.

Ayreon - - 01011001 – Special Edition CD and DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Ayreon is Arjen Luccassen. He creates magnificent rock operas under that name and manages to bring in some of the most impressive musicians in the business to work with him on these projects.

Dominici - 03 A Trilogy Part 3
Review by Gary Hill
Charlie Dominici is probably best known for his work in Dream Theater on their debut CD. While I’ve always like James LaBrie, for me, Dominici is the “real” Dream Theater vocalist and LaBrie the replacement.

Saga - 10,000 Days
Review by Gary Hill
This CD should please long time fans of Saga. There’s not really a lot of surprises here, the disc feels like classic music from the band, but when it’s this good, who cares?

Michael Sadler - Clear
Review by Josh Turner
The albums being released from Prog Rock Records these days exhibit exceptional production. This is by no means an exception.

Kansas - Device-Voice-Drum DVD
Review by Gary Hill
This DVD is one that has both positive and negative aspects. On the positive side the performance here is very strong, and it is just plain nice to have a Kansas video.

Stream of Passion - Embrace the Storm
Review by Josh Turner

Arjen Lucassen is a pioneer of the progressive as he can always be found engineering new and innovative projects. He finds talent in all the right places and involves many gifted artists in all aspects of his music.

Stream of Passion - Featuring Ayreon – Live in the Real World
Review by Josh Turner
Like a platypus, this is double-billed for twice the satisfaction with two effective mouthpieces.

Ayreon - Flight Of The Migrator Universal Migrator (Part 2)
Review by Gary Hill
Dutch band Ayreon has released two albums together as two parts of one story. The discs both have very different sounds, and a large cast of supporting musicians.

Kansas - Kansas (Remaster)
Review by Gary Hill
Along with Song For America, this disc is the first in a series of remasters of classic albums by this American prog band. The two CD's definitely show different sides to the band.

Kansas - Leftoverture
Review by Gary Hill

This was the breakthrough disc for Kansas. Many times that means “sell out” album. That’s definitely not the case here.

Various Artists - Leonardo The Absolute Man
Review by Gary Hill
This is a rock opera based on the life of Leonardo da Vinci. Although this album says "original cast recording" and I have (as does Magna Carta on their website) listed it here as by "Various Artists", it is probably closer to the truth to say that it is by Trent Gardner and friends.

Kansas - Masque
Review by Greg Olma
I don’t know why I never considered Kansas a prog band.  I was always putting them in the classic rock genre and leaving it at that.

Various Artists - Mullets Rock Too
Review by Gary Hill
It's a safe bet you've heard every song on this disc – although you might not have heard the Ace Frehley track as performed by him. That doesn't mean this set isn't enjoyable.

Kansas - Somewhere to Elsewhere
Review by Gary Hill
Somewhere to Elsewhere finds Kansas back to their older styles while still being innovative and originally. Fans of the classic prog era of this band should really be able to sink their teeth into this release.

Kansas - Song For America (Remaster)
Review by Gary Hill
Kansas is in the midst of reissuing its catalog. The first of these remasters is the self-titled album and this one.

Vapourspace - Sonic Residue from Vapourspace
Review by Steve Alspach
Here's an interesting concept - take songs from various releases from a progressive rock record label and let the music be transformed by a techno mix until it's nearly unrecognizable from the original source.

Magellan - Symphony for a Misanthrope
Review by Gary Hill
I've seen pictures of the Gardner brothers, the backbone of Magellan, and if I didn't know any better I'd have sworn that I opened up a 401k with them.

Ayreon - The Dream Sequencer Universal Migrator (Part 1)
Review by Gary Hill
Dutch band Ayreon has released two albums together as two parts of one story. The discs both have very different sounds, and a large cast of supporting musicians. This disc is the more melodic, song-oriented mode.

Kansas - There’s Know Place Like Home DVD
Review by Greg Olma
I can’t believe that Kansas is 35 years old.  I remember first getting Leftoverture when it came out and that is 33 years ago.

Saga - Trust
Review by Lorraine Kay
Saga outdid themselves on this, their latest studio CD. After 30 years they have not lost any freshness in their music.

Kansas - Two For The Show
Review by Steve Alspach
Kansas rode their crest of popularity in the late seventies with this two-album set that displays their fine skills. Released after "Point of Know Return," this album was recorded during several concert performances at various venues in the U.S. in 1977 and 1978.

Kansas - Two For the Show 30th Anniversary Edition
Review by Gary Hill
Kansas is a band that hasn’t always gotten the respect they deserve in the progressive rock community. Sure, part of that fact is due to their pop rock period in the mid portion of their career.

Star One - Victims of the Modern Age
Review by Gary Hill
This is the second album from Star One.

Dream Theater - When Dream and Day Unite
Review by Gary Hill
This was the debut disc from Dream Theater and the first album from them I ever had.

Kansas - Works In Progress
Review by Gary Hill
This disc is a new compilation from Kansas. There is one interesting paradox (and you might note that that is in fact a title of a Kansas song - although one not included on this set) here.

Saga - Worlds Apart Revisited
Review by Gary Hill
If the only track you've ever heard by Saga is “On The Loose” you probably don't realize that they are really a prog band. Certainly they lean often times toward more mainstream pop rock, but there is plenty of real prog in the mix.
