Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Totemic

Falling

Review by Gary Hill

This is electronic music. It might not be progressive rock. In fact, it’s not rock music at all. It is certainly progressive, though. This is purely sans vocals. It’s also quite cool. Despite the seemingly limited scope of the music, it never feels redundant or tired.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Falling

I dig the energetic electronic textures on this thing. I like the piano driven melody quite a bit, too. The mellower section at the end is quite classy.

Static Blitz
The electronic sounds on this are quite classy. The percussive elements lean toward electro-dance music, but the melodic stuff is more in line with proggy stuff and perhaps something like Kraftwerk.
Devil's Heart
This is very trippy and spacey. It’s a bit dark and ominous, too. This is definitely progressive music. It’s also pretty cool, if a bit strange.
Endless Dream
The sounds that open this feel like tuned percussion. It grows out from there into some fast paced almost tribal stuff. This is highly percussive and very progressive in scope.
