Progressive Rock CD Reviews


Hey Ya (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

Here’s one that might not exactly fit under progressive rock, but it’s close enough to a lot of the electronic prog out there to fit in my book. It’s energetic and a lot of fun. I like it a lot.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 3 at

Track by Track Review
Hey Ya

Electronic music and more collide on this. It’s got lot of energy and has some definite leanings toward dance music. Yet there are also bits of things like Vangelis and even some space rock in this. The male vocal has a bit too processing on it for my tastes, but this still classy. It’s full of energy and is quite catchy in a lot of ways.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
