Jack O’ the Clock - Night Loops
Review by Gary Hill
This is a pretty amazing and unusual disc.

Jack O’ the Clock - Repetitions of the Old City - I
Review by Gary Hill
This is a very impressive album. It has so many shifts and changes throughout.

More
Andy Jackson - Signal to Noise
Review by Gary Hill
Although this does get a little samey in terms of the moodiness, there is enough variety to keep it interesting.

More
Andy Jackson - 73 Days at Sea
Review by Gary Hill
In a lot of ways, this album really is one long work, all interconnected.

Jadis - More than Meets the Eye
Review by Steve Alspach
Progressive music rarely gets more accessible than this. For those who haven't connected with the genre, Jadis would serve as an excellent introduction to prog.

Jadis - Fanatic
Review by Steve Alspach
You have to hand it to IQ - you give a band an opening slot with you and end up loaning them half your band. So it is with Jadis - the "classic" lineup of Gary Chandler, Steve Christey, Martin Orford, and John Jowitt got together to record this, their tenth CD release as an off-shoot of long-time fixtures IQ.

Jakko M. Jakszyk - Waves Sweep the Sand
Review by Jason Hillenburg
With the looming debut of a new King Crimson incarnation including Jakko M. Jakszyk on lead vocals and sharing guitar duties with Robert Fripp, the time is right for a review of Jakszyk's stellar solo offerings. 

More
Jaugernaut (a. d.) - Contra - Mantra
Review by Gary Hill
It's a band, it's a solo album, it's a band, it's a solo album - well, actually it's kind of both. Apparently the band Jaugernaut was around in the 1970's and after having broken up achieved a cult following in Europe in recent years.
More
Jack Jeffery - Enlightened Horizon
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite cool. The music ranges from Vangelis like music to territory like Enigma, Pink Floyd and more.

More
Jeremy - Kingdom Come
Review by Gary Hill
The latest effort by Christian prog artist Jeremy Morris, this one shows him to be progressing quite well in his compositional style. It is certainly the most dynamic and diverse release he has done to date.
More
Jeremy - Salt The Planet
Review by Gary Hill
Jeremy Morris is a Christian prog rocker who goes by the name of Jeremy. This is his third album of instrumental music.
More
Jeremy - Celestial City
Review by Gary Hill
Created as a sequel to Jeremy's Pilgrim's Journey album, this one continues the story line that is told on that one. As to the listening, this is more instrumental prog based on Christian themes.

More
Jeremy - Pilgrim's Journey
Review by Gary Hill
The first instrumental journey from Jeremy (Christian artist Jeremy Morris). This one is definitely in the classical tradition, leading one to think at times of Synergy, Genesis and classical music.
More
Jethro Tull - The Very Best Of
Review by Gary Hill
Choosing what songs to include on a Jethro Tull compilation like this one must be a daunting task. Just think about the wealth of material available in their catalog and then try to imagine culling just enough material to fill one CD.
More
Jethro Tull - Crest of A Knave (Reissue)
Review by G. W. Hill
Part of a series of reissue released this year, this is a fine Tull album, although not really from their classic period. In fact, it was this disc that found the band taking “Best Metal Artist” Grammy in the first year of that award.
More
Jethro Tull - J-Tull Dot Com
Review by G. W. Hill
Arguably Jethro Tull's strongest album in quite some time, this one really captures the Tull sounds from every era and combines them into a smorgasbord of potent music. The band seems to add new elements to the mix and come out with an album that is certainly not tied to the sound of one period of the band, or one style of music.
More
Jethro Tull - Minstrel In The Gallery (Reissue)
Review by Gary Hill
This disc is another of the recent reissues by Jethro Tull. It is also one of the band’s finest works of all time.
More
Jethro Tull - The Jethro Tull Christmas Album
Review by Gary Hill
For those hankering for a Jethro Tull album that fits nicely into a similar style as their late 1970's albums, this disc was just the ticket. Adding the holiday theme makes a bonus.
More
Jethro Tull - Live at Hammersmith ’84
Review by Scott Prinzing
Originally recorded live on September 9 for broadcast on the BBC Radio One on December 27, 1984, this CD wasn’t released until 1990. 

More
Jethro Tull - Catfish Rising
Review by Gary Hill
This was the first album from Jethro Tull in the 1990s.

More
Jethro Tull - Roots to Branches
Review by Gary Hill
I have to say that this is a Jethro Tull album that doesn’t get a lot of attention compared to some of the rest of their catalog.

More
Dusan Jevtovic - Am I Walking Wrong?
Review by Gary Hill
This is a purely instrumental album with a pretty wide range of sounds.

More
Dusan Jevtovic - No Answer
Review by Gary Hill

The brand of instrumental fusion here is hard to pin down. At times it's freeform and very jazz oriented.


More
Dusan Jevtovic - Live at Home
Review by Gary Hill

You can count on Dusan Jevtovic and company to consistently produce killer music. This new live CD is no exception.


More
Jon And Vangelis - I Hear You Now / I’ll Find My Way Home (7 inch vinyl single)
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve been going through some of my old vinyl and getting things reviewed.

More
Percy Jones - Cape Catastrophe
Review by Gary Hill
Percy Jones is probably best known as the bass player for Brand X.

More
Robert Jordan - Gypsy Curiosa
Review by Gary Hill
Coming out of groups like The Executive Slacks and Tubalcain, Robert Jordan was part of the industrial movement. Now he has taken his generally dark and gloomy bent and brought it to progressive rock in a solo album.
More
Angela Josephine - Daylight
Review by Gary Hill

Some music is really hard to categorize. This release is such music.


More
Joykill Collective - Battle Cry (Digital Single)
Review by Gary Hill
This digital single is quite a cool piece. I love the classic acoustic guitar sounds that open this.

More
Robert Jürjendal - Source of Joy
Review by Gary Hill
Prog, fusion and classical are all merged on this disc.
