Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Sunshine Superman

Sunshine Superman

Review by Gary Hill

Combining progressive rock with psychedelic and jazz, this is a cool set. It’s just a short EP (only four tracks). I’d love to hear more from this outfit because they are quite cool.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2012  Volume 2 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
Paranoia

There’s a bit of a piano and voice introduction to this. Then it turns to jazz meets progressive rock. This is a little odd, but also very cool. There’s some great instrumental work built in here and there and sometimes it reminds me a little of “Godspell.” There is a great instrumental movement that has a lot of classic prog in it later.

March Along
This is more psychedelic early. It works out to a rather symphonic arrangement that has a lot more mainstream progressive rock built into it.
Easy In My Skin
Coming in like something from a jazz trio, this is a tasty number and the vocals are nicely bluesy.
Out of Your Sky
Here’s a cut that’s the most mainstream of the bunch. It feels like pretty standard prog rock with a definite pop music link. It’s a good tune and a satisfying way to end the set.
