Tacachale Chamber Orchestra - Ocean Floor Funeral
Review by Gary Hill
First off, I’d like to say that this is probably not progressive rock.

More
Talinka - Talinka
Review by Gary Hill
I'm not sure about the whole concept of putting this under the "progressive rock" heading. It's on the MoonJune label, and that's a prog label.

More
Chandrika Tandon - Shivoham - the Quest
Review by Gary Hill

This is an unusual release in so many ways. First, there is just the configuration of the set. We have three CDs along with a nice book all in a box.


More
The Tangent - Stars and Pyramids
Review by Josh Turner
If you missed them at ROSfest 2005, you missed the best thing they've done so far. If you haven't even seen them live at all, it is essential you hear this disc.
More
The Tangent - The Music That Died Alone
Review by Josh Turner
Stop reading right here… Go out and get the album NOW!!! You should run, not walk.
More
The Tangent - The World That We Drive Through
Review by Josh Turner
With all the hype, this was setting itself up to be the disappointment of the year. So, how good is The World That We Drive Through?
More
Tangerine Dream - Rockoon
Review by Steve Alspach
Tangerine Dream started in the early 1970s as a keyboard-based trio. Their early efforts were quite exploratory, examining the range of sounds and effects of the then-new electronic technology.
More
Tangerine Dream - The Official Bootleg Series, Vol. 1: Reims Cathedral, December 1974 & Mozartsaal, Mannheim October 1976
Review by Gary Hill
The title of this set really goes a long way toward telling what this is.

More
Tangerine Dream - The Official Bootleg Series: Volume Two: Palais des Congres, Paris March 1978 & Palast der Republik, East Berlin, January 1980
Review by Gary Hill
This massive set of live Tangerine Dream is part of a series.

More
Brian Tarquin - & Heavy Friends – Guitars for Wounded Warriors
Review by Gary Hill
This album is designed to raise money for the Wounded Warriors project.

More
Brian Tarquin - and Company - Orlando in Heaven
Review by Gary Hill
A tribute to the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, this is a classy set of music.

More
Madeline Tasquin - Future Telephone
Review by Gary Hill

I've included this under progressive rock. Clearly it's not tied to the prog of the 1970s, or perhaps it is.


More
Tautologic - Re:Psychle
Review by Gary Hill

This is an unusual and oddly compelling set. The music lands quite firmly in progressive rock, while the vocals are often more in keeping with weird alternative rock styles.


More
Taylor's Universe - (with Karsten Vogel) - Once Again
Review by Josh Turner
I knew nothing about this band when I slipped this disc in. My first impression was one of confusion and utter uneasiness.
More
Taylor's Universe - (with Karsten Vogel) - Oyster's Apprentice
Review by Josh Turner
If you liked Robin Taylor's Once Again, this album makes the perfect companion. This is actually much of the same material, which makes it closely complement his previous creation.
More
Tea and Symphony - An Asylum for the Musically Insane
Review by Gary Hill
This is a reissue of a 1969 album. It is definitely proto-prog.

More
Tea and Symphony - Jo Sago
Review by Gary Hill
I recently reviewed another album from these guys. This, like that one, is a reissue of an old album.

More
Les Techno - Where Were You? (Digital Single)
Review by Gary Hill

This new single is apparently inspired by the Charlottesville violence between white supremacist groups and protesters.  


More
Tehnoloogiline Päike - Technological Sun
Review by Gary Hill
In a lot of ways this seems like Tangerine Dream or Synergy to me. It’s electronic music.

More
Telergy - The Legend of Goody Cole
Review by Gary Hill
I liked Telergy’s last album, but this one is definitely superior.

More
Telergy - Hypatia
Review by Gary Hill
Telergy consistently releases strong progressive rock albums.

More
Tempest - 15th Anniversary Collection
Review by Gary Hill
This box set shows just how much integrity and talent Tempest has. The Celtic based prog rock outfit could have simply put out a collection of their best known pieces and added in a few unreleased gems here and there.

More
Tempest - 10th Anniversary Compilation
Review by Gary Hill
The latest release from Celtic prog band Tempest, this CD is a compilation, but in an unusual way. Although these are all older Tempest songs, they are new performances of those songs.
More
Tempest - The Gravel Walk
Review by Gary Hill

Fans of Jethro Tull should really check this album out. This is good solid rock, in the vein of Tull, but with a more solid Celtic tradition. 


More
Tempest - Balance
Review by Gary Hill

Although 1999's 10th Anniversary Compilation included new recordings of the group's older material, this disc is the first album of truly "new" songs by this band since 1997's Gravel Walk. 


More
Tempest - Shapeshifter
Review by Gary Hill
As someone who has followed Tempest for quite a while it is very rewarding to see them release a disc as good as this one. They have nothing in their catalog to compare really.
More
Tempest - The Tracks We Leave
Review by Gary Hill
To some degree you know what you are going to get with a new Tempest album.

More
Tempest - Thirty Little Turns
Review by Gary Hill

It's hard to believe that Lief Sorbye first formed Tempest 30 years ago. This new album is a celebration of that rich history, whether you can believe it or not.


More
Ten Jinn - As On A Darkling Plain
Review by Gary Hill
Including an epic length number and influences ranging from Genesis to Tull and others, this album is definitely all progressive rock. The vocal arrangements on this release are one of its strongest points, but the music is not lacking in any way either.
More
TheKI - TheKI
Review by Gary Hill
I am sure I’ll get an argument with some readers about putting this under progressive rock.

More
THEO - The Game of Ouroboros
Review by Gary Hill
This is progressive rock. There is a wide range of ideas within that general label, though.

More
Theraphosa - Hung like Mussolini
Review by Gary Hill
I’m sure a lot of people will argue with me putting this under progressive rock. 

More
3rd Ear Experience - Peacock Black
Review by Gary Hill
What a cool piece of space rock this album is.

More
3rd Ear Experience - Boi
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool set. It’s definitely heavy.

More
3rd Ear Experience - Incredible Good Fortune
Review by Gary Hill
The newest disc from Third Ear Experience, if anything, this is stronger than their previous one. 

More
3rd Ear Experience - Stones Of A Feather
Review by Gary Hill
With this act you can always be sure that you'll get a lot of exceptional space rock. This disc is no exception.

More
3rd Ear Experience - Stoned Gold
Review by Gary Hill

One thing you can almost always say about space rock is that generally changes aren't quick within the music. That's true of this album for the most part.


More
3rd Ear Experience - Peacock Black (Vinyl Edition)
Review by Gary Hill

To some degree I really think vinyl is the proper way to hear music like this. Despite what a lot of people will tell you, vinyl has a more open and real sound to it than CD (and certainly digital files or streaming) have.


More
3rd Ear Experience - Stones Of A Feather (Vinyl Edition)
Review by Gary Hill

While there are many who will argue with this assessment, vinyl and digital media do not sound the same. There is a vitality and resonance with vinyl that you just don't get with digital.


More
Chris Thompson - Jukebox – The Ultimate Collection
Review by Gary Hill
Chris Thompson came to fame as the lead singer for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band.

More
Three Man Army - Third of a Lifetime
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new digitally remastered edition of a 1971 album. This band might be one that got lost in the mists of time, but that's a shame.

More
Three Wise Monkeys - Progetto Arte
Review by Gary Hill
I consider this album to be prog rock. I’m sure there are plenty of prog purists who will disagree, but honestly, I can’t see it fitting anywhere else.

More
Tibet - Tibet
Review by Gary Hill
This album has a cool mix of progressive rock, psychedelia and a lot more.

More
Tiles - Presents of Mind
Review by Gary Hill

With long time Rush producer Terry Brown manning the boards on this one, and a cover designed by Hugh Syme (also well known for his association with that band), the comparisons to that Canadian trio are to be expected. Truly, this group does have some common ground as far as sound with the band. 


More
Marius Tilly - Words for the Wilderness
Review by Gary Hill

This is certainly not included under progressive rock in the traditional sense. However, this is literally music that progresses from the norm.


More
Tilted Axes - Music for Mobile Electric Guitars
Review by Gary Hill
What an intriguing project this is. This is just essentially the "home game" version of Tilted Axes. I
More
Tin Scribble - Children of Saturn
Review by Gary Hill
Tin Scribble's Children of the Saturn is a good CD that takes a bit of getting used to. The main element that causes there to be a steep learning curve are Michael Moore's vocals.
More
Tohpati - Tribal Dance
Review by Gary Hill
You really can’t go wrong with Tohpati.

More
Tohpati - Tohpati Ethnomission - Mata Hati
Review by Gary Hill
You can always count on Tohpati to deliver some great music.

More
Tolerance - When Time Stops
Review by Gary Hill
In a lot of ways this fits into a heavy metal or mainstream hard rock sound.

More
Tomita - Pictures at an Exhibition
Review by Gary Hill
Since the last issue of Music Street Journal we’ve lost three exceptional musicians. I’m doing a retro review featuring each of them.

More
Tomita - The Planets
Review by Gary Hill
This retro review looks at one of Tomita's most famous albums. I've always liked this one a lot.

More
Tomorrow's Eve - Mirror of Creation III – Project Ikaros
Review by Gary Hill

Prog fans who feel that Dream Theater is metal rather than progressive rock will want to steer clear of this release.


More
Totemic - Falling
Review by Gary Hill
This is electronic music. It might not be progressive rock.

More
Toto - XIV
Review by Larry Toering
Toto are back with a vengeance and then some on this Frontiers release. Man, what a killer comeback to the studio this is.

More
Traces d'Illusions - Après la colline
Review by Gary Hill

This French outfit has produced an intriguing instrumental album here. It seems to live within some sort of zone that's part fusion, part classical music and part progressive rock.


More
Trans-Siberian Orchestra - The Lost Christmas Eve
Review by Gary Hill
For those not in the know, Trans-Siberian Orchestra is a spin off from the band Savatage. This is the third CD in a trilogy of Christmas discs the band has produced.
More
Trans-Siberian Orchestra - The Christmas Attic (vinyl)
Review by Gary Hill
This classic Trans-Siberian Orchestra album has just been reissued on vinyl.

More
Transatlantic - STMPE
Review by Gary Hill and Steve Alspach
When you talk progressive rock and the term "supergroup" comes up, this band will certainly come to mind. The band is made up of Roine Stolt of Flower Kings, Pete Trewavas of Marillion, Neal Morse of Spocks Beard and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater.
More
Transatlantic - The Bridge Across Forever
Review by Steve Alspach
Prog's premier supergroup (Neal Morse, Roine Stolt, Mike Portnoy, and Pete Trewavas) strike again with this 2001 release. This album sounds similar to their first effort, but there are many differences that set this album apart.
More
Transatlantic - Live in America
Review by Steve Alspach

It takes cajones to record an album consisting of your fifth or sixth performance ever as a band. But if you're as talented as the guys in Transatlantic, nerves are perhaps the only problem.


More
Tribute - Breaking Barriers
Review by Gary Hill
The mix of sounds on this is great.

More
Tribute - Live! - The Melody, The Beat, The Heart
Review by Gary Hill
This live album is quite good. It’s almost all instrumental.

More
Tribute - New Views (Colored Vinyl Edition)
Review by Gary Hill
I have reviewed the CD version of this previously.

More
Tribute - Terra Incognita
Review by Gary Hill
This album is a new reissue of an album from 1991. The music here ranges from classical to more pure prog, but there are things like African tribal sounds and more here.

More
Triumvirat - Illusions on a Double Dimple
Review by Steve Alspach
Triumvirat - a band of exciting keyboard wizardry, or the poor man's Emerson, Lake and Palmer? There can be some similarities drawn:
More
Troposphere - Troposphere
Review by Gary Hill
This project is the new thing from Greg Lounsberry. He's a busy guy who has been the main man behind projects from Laserdogs to October Tree and more.

More
True Nature - You Shouldn't Have To Shout So Loud
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve placed this one in the progressive rock section of Music Street Journal.

More
The Tubes - Live At German Television: The Musikladen Concert 1981
Review by Gary Hill
I reviewed the DVD of this last issue, but this time around it's the CD release. I have to say, the Tubes are a hard band to classify.

More
Tune - Identity
Review by Gary Hill
The most obvious reference here is to David Bowie.

More
Jartse Tuominen - Untold Stories
Review by Gary Hill
The guitar hero type sounds of Joe Satriani and Steve Vai are probably the closest reference point here.

More
Martin Turner - Written in the Stars
Review by Gary Hill
Martin Turner is best known for his work with Wishbone Ash.

More
Martin Turner - Life Begins – Deluxe 2CD + DVD Set
Review by Gary Hill
This set captures a live performance from 2010. As many will know, Martin Turner was a founding members of Wishbone Ash, and this particular tour was all about the 40th Anniversary of that band.

More
Martin Turner - New Live Dates
Review by Gary Hill
This is a new album in this configuration. The whole thing has been released before, though.

More
Nik Turner - Space Gypsy
Review by Gary Hill
Nik Turner is probably best known as a former member of Hawkwind.

More
Nik Turner - Space Fusion Odyssey
Review by Gary Hill
I was not expecting this set. It’s an instrumental album.

More
Nik Turner - Life in Space
Review by Gary Hill

This is the new album from Hawkwind co-founder Nik Turner.


More
Tuval Cain - Forging the Future
Review by Gary Hill
This is an Israeli progressive rock band.

More
The Twenty Committee - A Lifeblood Psalm
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a unique and effective set.

More
Twenty Sixty Six and Then - Reflections on the Future
Review by Gary Hill
I've never heard of these guys before. Given the strength of this set, it's my loss.

More
Tyranny Of Hours - Tyranny Of Hours
Review by Larry Toering
This is a female fronted progressive rock band from the Pacific Northwest, with a strong metal feel.
