Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Mohamed Assani

Lucid Dreaming (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

I reviewed a full set from Mohamed Assani a couple issues ago at MSJ. I landed that one under progressive rock but said that it wasn't a tight fit. I'm doing the same thing here. This instrumental is certainly progressive music, but it's perhaps not prog rock. That said, it comes pretty close in a lot of ways. However you categorize this, it's compelling stuff.

This review is available in book (paperback and hardcover) form in Music Street Journal: 2020  Volume 5. More information and purchase links can be found at:

Track by Track Review
Lucid Dreaming
I dig the cool trippy vibe that starts this. It almost feels like it's set in a country music zone at times. Yet, it's really all about both world music and psychedelic sounds. This instrumental takes the listener on quite the journey. It's almost eight minutes long, and good use is made of that time.
