Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Direct Divide

Abduction (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

I recently reviewed an album from this band and really liked them. Let me just say that, they are not a progressive rock band. That said, this new single from them is really prog. It’s also quite strong.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 6 at

Track by Track Review

This starts with a balladic approach and grows out gradually from there. The piano and the strings add a lot here, but the vocals (this is a female fronted act) really bring it all home. There is some crunch in the mix here. This gets quite lush and powerful. It’s a real powerhouse and it’s pretty dynamic and diverse. I love this song and highly recommend it to anyone who likes heavy rock.

(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. )
