Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Joseph Sant

Sea White Salt

Review by Gary Hill

I can see people arguing with this getting placed under progressive rock. That said, there is plenty of modern prog built into this. We only get four songs here. I’d really like to hear more. This is strong stuff, even if you don’t think it’s prog.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Horse at the Beach

As this comes in with a stripped back arrangement, it feels like folk music. When layers of sound fill out the arrangement, it begins to resemble modern progressive rock like Radiohead.

Sea White Salt
This cut is considerably slower. It’s also a bit of a wonder. It is trippy and pretty. It’s a lot like something you might expect from RPWL.  There are hints of early Pink Floyd and Radiohead here, too.
Nor’easter
More energized and rocking, this is again a lot like the proggy side of Radiohead. I can make out some shoegaze here, too. There is a bit of drum solo mid-track, and the piece is suitably trippy.
Only the Shock
Combining folk music with the kind of dreamy stuff we’ve heard throughout, this is short, but also particularly effective.
