Pieces of Eight is the eighth studio album by Styx, released on September 1, 1978. Like the band's previous album, The Grand Illusion (1977), it managed to achieve triple platinum certification, thanks to the hit singles "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)" and "Renegade". The band members produced and recorded the album (like their previous three efforts) at Paragon Studios in Chicago with recording engineer Barry Mraz and mixing engineer Rob Kingsland. "I'm O.K." was recorded at Paragon and St. James Cathedral. This would be the last album to be produced at Paragon Studios. The album's cover was done by Hipgnosis. Some consider the album to be Styx' second concept album (1973's The Serpent Is Rising arguably being the first) as well as the last Styx album with significant progressive rock leanings.

Amenophis was founded in 1978 by Michael Roessman, Wolfgang Vollmuth, and Stefan Roessmann. The name was taken from an Egyptian Pharoah, and was meant to have international appeal.
Amenophis' self-titled 1983 debut is regarded by many as a masterpiece of symphonic prog. Its moody and mystical world enveloped the listener in a spell not broken until sometime after the last bonus track had reached homeopathic decibel levels. Unfortunately, the album achieved little sales success, and the band was only able to release a follow up if it met certain commercial standards, hence "You and I" from 1988, a decent pop prog album but with few of its predecessor's charms. It sold only a little better, and that was pretty much that, perhaps…

Chernobyl 7991 is the eighth album of the Jazz fusion band Area and was released in 1997. This is the first album in 17 years, and Area had been in hiatus from 1983 to 1993. They first reunited as a trio consisting of Fariselli, Capiozzo and Tavolazzi. Tavolazzi, after the first shows, left the band in order to pursue other projects. Much like the previous studio album "Tic&Tac" from 17 years earlier, this album is much more of a jazz/fusion product than Area's classic sound. This is the only album with bass player Paolo dalla Porta, who replaced Tavolazzi.

A companion to the same label's masterful reissue of John Cale's Paris 1919, The Frozen Borderline remasters the two albums that Nico recorded (with Cale in attendance) for Elektra and Reprise in 1968 and 1970, adding a heap of bonus tracks and the kind of deluxe packaging that fans – accustomed to the cheapness of other Nico repackagings – have previously only dreamed about. Spread across two discs, one per original LP, the two albums sound spectacular. Neither was exactly a production tour de force, their instrumentation dominated, of course, by harmonium, and the handful of flourishes that Cale layered on.

Sinkadus played LA's Progfest with Malcolm Parker at Cyclops (their European label) releasing the recording of the event as Live at Progfest '97 the following year, packaged with the original version of the album as a bonus disc, rather clumsily entitled Aurum Nostrum, Version 1. The trouble with putting out a live recording this early in a band's career (see: Spock's Beard) is their lack of material, usually resulting in a run-through of their sole album with a new track or two thrown in. Well, that's exactly what you get here, although at least they changed the album's track order around. The album has a great sound, very 'in your face', with the standard Progfest vintage keyboards to the fore…

Pekka Pohjola (1952-2008) is without doubt one of the greatest bassist/multi-instrumentalist in Europe. He knows how to handle several other instruments too… violin, piano, organ, keyboards, synthesizers, and trumpet as well. His style could be described with words as progressive rock filled with invention & Scandinavian folky/jazzy delights. In 1970 Pekka joined Wigwam, a Finnish group around the English singer and pianist Jim Pembroke, staying four glorious years. In 1977, he formed The Group and in 1979, he toured with Mike Oldfield, who is an admirer of this bass-player. In 1980, The Group changed its name to Pekka Pohjola Group, but along the way the word "Group" is dropped, so the band played on as Pekka Pohjola…

Pretty good single from pretty good album "Dead Bees on a Cake". Sylvian's solo career balances new-agey pretentiousness with truly affecting minimalism and instrumentation. Here, he somewhat returns to pop, and it works.

This official Esoteric CD edition has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an essay by Sid Smith.

The story of Campo di Marte (named after an area of Florence) is a familiar one in the annals of Italian progressive rock. Like many of their fellow countrymen they released one album and due to a lack of interest and record company promotion split up. In fact the band had already called it a day before the album was released. Nevertheless it remains an important release and well worth seeking out for anyone with more than a passing interest in the genre.
The band was formed in Florence in 1971 by ex-Senso Unico guitarist Enrico Rosa who also composed all the material…

No Smoke Without Fire is the ninth studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It is the first album since 1972's Argus to be produced by Derek Lawrence. It is also the heaviest Wishbone Ash album in years, featuring rockers like the hit single "You See Red" and the multi-part progressive rock epic "The Way of the World." Many fans considered this to be a true return to form after their flirting with an "American" sound on their previous trio of albums.

Seven Tears finds Golden Earring continuing to develop its distinctive blend of hard rock and prog elements, but the end result is not as consistent as 1970's Golden Earring. The big problem this time out is that the group's adventurous genre-hopping tendencies don't always result in strong songs: "Silver Ships" is a soft, science fiction-influenced song that generates a potent atmosphere but lacks the strong arrangement and sense of dynamics that would allow it to take flight, and "You're Better Off Free" loses sight of its catchy tune with a lengthy midsection guitar jam that derails an otherwise interesting song. Despite these problems, Seven Tears shows a band willing to take big risks to transform its combination of elements into a totally unique style.

With the release of Anchor Drops, Umphrey's McGee has made only two studio albums to go with its four live albums, an appropriate balance for a band more comfortable jamming on-stage than writing songs and trying to come up with definitive performances of them in the studio. Necessarily, a studio collection focuses more on the songs as compositions consisting of lyrics (usually) and melodies, rather than on flashy playing before paying customers. Boasting 14 tracks, only a couple of which run over five minutes, Anchor Drops demonstrates that Umphrey's McGee remains a collection of riffmeisters who haven't quite figured out how to make music that is as involving as it is admirable. The players remain formidable instrumentalists who like to construct tracks from interesting bits they've stumbled upon while jamming, instead of actually composing within a structure…
