Echo Us - II:XII A Priori Memoriae
Review by Gary Hill
Echo Us’ brand of progressive rock leans toward new age.

More
Echolust - Veldisa
Review by Gary Hill
Perhaps this doesn't really fit under progressive rock. It has a lot in common with bands ranging from The Cure to Depeche Mode.

More
Echolyn - The End is Beautiful
Review by Josh Turner
After Echolyn steamrolled fans with a shockingly long and surprisingly well-written song, they are back at it again. This time, however, they opt for a more song-oriented approach.
More
Echolyn - Cowboy Poems Free
Review by Gary Hill
With this album Echolyn have truly created a unique work that should stand the test of time. The true strength of this band is not in musical virtuosity, although there is plenty of that on display.
More
Echolyn - Mei
Review by Gary Hill
To this writer, Echolyn's greatest strength has always been their uncanny ability to craft music that, although quite progressive in nature, still manages to maintain a mainstream, almost pop sensibility.
More
Echolyn - I Heard You Listening
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always liked Echolyn.

More
EchoTest - From Two Balconies
Review by Gary Hill
As a bass player, I have to love any band whose sound is built around two bassists.

More
Tristan Eckerson - Dance Craze
Review by Gary Hill
I can imagine people quibbling with my classifying this as progressive rock. Clearly the “rock” part isn’t here.

More
Eclat - En Concert
Review by G. W. Hill
Hailing from France, this prog rock outfit does music a bit in the styles of UK, Genesis and others with a definite fusion tilt to it. The guitar on this album really steals the show in many places.
More
Edensong - Years in the Garden of Years
Review by Gary Hill
This brand new album from Edensong is pretty amazing.


More
Dave Edmunds - On Guitar...Dave Edmunds – Rags & Classics
Review by Gary Hill
I am in no way suggesting that Dave Edmunds is a prog rock musician.

More
Egg - The Civil Surface
Review by Gary Hill
I have heard of Egg over the years, but until this reissued album, I never actually heard them.

More
Mattias IA Eklundh - Freak Guitar: The Road Less Traveled
Review by Gary Hill
I have to say that having heard an earlier disc by Eklundh I came at this with more than a little trepidation. That other album literally gave me a headache.
More
The Electric Family - Terra Circus
Review by Gary Hill
The mix of sounds here might not land under progressive rock to your senses. However, it's got a healthy helping of space rock in the mix along with psychedelia.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - Electric Light Orchestra
Review by John Pierpoint
This 1971 album was apparently entitled No Answer in the USA, although this was due to a misunderstanding between the band and the distributor.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - ELO2
Review by John Pierpoint
First, a confession: I was a huge ELO fan when I was at school. I thought they were the gods of pop.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - On The Third Day
Review by John Pierpoint
After two reasonably successful albums for EMI Harvest, Jeff Lynne’s merry men moved over to Don Arden’s Jet records for their next release.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - Eldorado
Review by Gary Hill
This album is an intriguing one.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - Face the Music
Review by Gary Hill
It might be obvious, but this has always been one of my favorite albums from Electric Light Orchestra.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - Zoom
Review by Gary Hill
When Electric Light Orchestra came back with Zoom, I think a lot of fans had moved on to other things.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record
Review by Gary Hill
This is definitely one of my favorite ELO albums.

More
Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record (Expanded Version)
Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed the standard version of this album previously.

More
Electric Soul - Second Paradise
Review by Gary Hill
Sounds ranging from psychedelic rock to King Crimson, The Doors and even metal are mixed together on this set.

More
Kev Ellis - Space Cadet
Review by Gary Hill
If you like space rock in general and Hawkwind in particular, you are sure to love this disc.

More
Eluusif - 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.

More
Pablo Embon - The World Within
Review by Gary Hill
This is a fusion album. It has a nice mix of sounds within that heading.

More
Pablo Embon - Funky Side of the Road
Review by Gary Hill
I love the mellow jazz on display here. You'll note that I've included this in the progressive rock section of Music Street Journal.

More
Pablo Embon - What Comes into Play
Review by Gary Hill
So, you say you like melodic fusion? Well, then you should give this a try. It's a great album. The music varies well enough from song to song, but also feels like one cohesive set at the same time.

More
Emerald - Crown of Creation
Review by Gary Hill
I got this CD not having heard anything about the band. I put it in and was immediately captivated.
More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - King Biscuit
Review by G. W. Hill
A compilation of tracks from two ELP performances are presented here in a double disc set. These performances are from the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show.
More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Then And Now
Review by G. W. Hill
This two disc set is a live album featuring performances from two different ELP eras, "then" and "now". The "then" material is from Cal Jam `74, and the "now" is from shows on the most recent tour.
More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Brain Salad Surgery
Review by Josh Turner
I would not be the first to say that their music has not held up over the years, because it obviously hasn't. Before we count them out completely, it is important to point out that Emerson demonstrated many innovations in music long before the digital age.
More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Review by Gary Hill
This first album from Emerson, Lake and Palmer is really a classic.

More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Trilogy
Review by Gary Hill
The third album from Emerson, Lake and Palmer this has some great pieces of music.

More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Tarkus
Review by Gary Hill
This is another classic ELP album that we’ve not previously reviewed.

More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Live at Montreux 1997
Review by Gary Hill
This live album features a strong performance from Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Pictures at an Exhibition
Review by Gary Hill
What a year it’s been, and not in a good way. Since the last issue of Music Street Journal went up at the end of January, we lost three great (and very different musicians).

More
Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Once Upon A Time In South America
Review by Gary Hill
This live set should definitely please ELP fans. It's four CD set that is made up of music recorded on three different nights.

More
Keith Emerson - Honky
Review by Gary Hill
This album from Keith Emerson was recorded in the Bahamas.

More
Keith Emerson and Greg Lake - Live from Manticore Hall
Review by Gary Hill
This live recording features Keith Emerson and Greg Lake doing ELP songs (and a little more).

More
Keith Emerson and the Nice - Vivacitas - Live at Glasgow 2002
Review by Gary Hill
Billed as Keith Emerson and the Nice, this recent release is accurate with that name from a technical standpoint, but in some ways it is a little deceptive. While all of the music on the disc does feature Keith Emerson, only the first CD is actually with The Nice, and even then, it's only two of the members of the band (plus the keyboard wizard).
More
The Keith Emerson Trio - The Keith Emerson Trio
Review by Gary Hill
Most people probably know of Keith Emerson for his work with The Nice and Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

More
Empty Palace - The Serpent Between the Stars
Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed this from a format I haven’t dealt with in a long time – cassette tape.

More
Enchant - A Blueprint of the World
Review by G. W. Hill
Although, perhaps more progressive than metal, this album still seems to fit fairly well into this category. The musicianship and song writing on this disc are quite accomplished.
More
Enchant - Juggling 9 or Dropping 10
Review by Steve Alspach
You know when you're in Europe when even the little record shop at the airport has a Prog section. Duly impressed, I took a chance on this band based on the interesting album title alone.
More
Enchant - Break
Review by Gary Hill
With Break Enchant have created a concept album that is both personal and universal. Such a dichotomy is appropriate for this band, as they seem to be experts at dual natured concepts.
More
Toulouse Engelhardt - Mind Gardens
Review by Gary Hill
Not everything here is progressive rock.

More
The Enid - Something Wicked This Way Comes: Live at Claret Hall Farm & Stonehenge 1984
Review by Gary Hill
This new live set from the Enid is quite good. It includes two different shows on two separate DVDs.

More
Epica - Consign To Oblivion
Review by Gary Hill
If I had to choose one word to describe this CD it would be "mind-boggling." OK, so technically that's two words - still it fits.
More
Epitaph - Fire from the Soul
Review by Gary Hill
Based on the band name and album cover, I almost expected a heavy metal disc.

More
Esquire - No Spare Planet
Review by Gary Hill
One could expect Esquire to sound like the music of Yes (and particularly Chris Squire). One half of this band, Nikki Squire, used to be married to Chris Squire, and they do share some musical reference points.

More
Eurasia - Ilmondoarovescio
Review by Gary Hill
While the members of this act might not be well-known to American audiences, each of the five musicians in this band have reputations in Italy.

More
Existence - Live in Montreal
Review by Gary Hill
I’d never heard this act before. Their brand of progressive rock is quite cool.

More
Existence - Small People, Short Story, Little Crime
Review by Gary Hill
I wish I could say that I was familiar with this act before I heard this and their live set.

More
Exovex - Radio Silence
Review by Gary Hill
The sound here definitely lands in the modern progressive style.

More
Explorer's Club - Age of Impact
Review by G. W. Hill
This album could well be the most important progressive disc of the decade for two reasons. Firstly, by the sheer magnitude of performers on this CD.
More
Explorer's Club - Raising the Mammoth
Review by Gary Hill
Explorer's Club is in session once again. This time Trent Gardner has assembled a different group of musicians that includes drummer Terry Bozzio (UK, Frank Zappa, Bozzio Levin Stevens), bassist John Myung (Liquid Tension Experiment, Platypus, Dream Theater), Kerry Livgren (guitarist for Kansas), Gary Wehrkamp (Shadow Gallery) and keyboardist Mark Robertson (Cairo).
More
Eyes of Blue - In Fields of Arduth
Review by Gary Hill
This is the reissue of an album from 1969. Perhaps it’s not progressive rock. It’s psychedelic and really very much proto prog, though.

More
Eyes of Blue - Crossroads of Time
Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed another reissue by this band in the last issue. This one is more mainstream than that album.
