Sky
CD Reviews
Cadmium
Review by Gary Hill
This album is not nearly as classically oriented as some of their others are. Still, the classical elements do drive some of the pieces.

Carillon: The Singles Collection 1979-1987
Review by Gary Hill
A while ago I reviewed a box set of studio albums from Sky. For my money, that might be the best introduction to this act.

Mozart
Review by Gary Hill
The final album (to date - the group has not worked together since, but have not officially disbanded), this is the most classical release they ever did. It was recorded with a symphony orchestra.

Sky
Review by Gary Hill
This was the debut album from Sky. It really set a high bar.

Sky 2
Review by Gary Hill
This was originally released as a double LP on vinyl.  It actually almost feels like two different albums.

Sky 3
Review by Gary Hill
As you might gather from the title, this was the third album from Sky. Between the two releases Francis Monkman had departed, being replaced by Steve Gray.

Sky 4: Forthcoming
Review by Gary Hill
The fourth album from Sky focused on new arrangements of music written by others. While there is an emphasis on classical music, there are other things included as well.

The Great Balloon Race
Review by Gary Hill
While overall the concept of instrumental prog/fusion isn't greatly changed from their previous works, this one is just so strong. The quality and intensity are really dialed up a lot.

The Studio Albums: 1979-1987 Box Set
Review by Gary Hill
This is a particularly awesome box set. It's also a great value. You get all seven of Sky's studio albums, and as a bonus there is a live DVD included as the eighth disc.

Curved Air - Phantasmagoria
Review by Steve Alspach
Curved Air was an English band with a lot of interesting little quirks. It's where Eddie Jobson and Stewart Copeland both got their starts, and it's the band that came out with the first picture disc (on its debut album, "Air Conditioning" - they should have spent the time and money cleaning up the sound of the album).

Curved Air - Phantasmagoria: Remastered & Expanded Edition
Review by Gary Hill

This is a great new release. It includes a remastered version of the Phantasmagoria album along with some extra tracks. If that was all you got, it would be worth having.

Review by Gary Hill
Is this progressive music? Yes. Is it progressive rock? I don’t know.
