Published on 17th June 2015 | by Jez Rowden

With a US tour starting in July and European dates scheduled for the end of the year, Messrs Govan, Beller and Minnemann return with the third studio instalment of their mind-bendingly dextrous outings as The Aristocrats.... Read More

Emerson Lake & Palmer - Trilogy

Emerson Lake & Palmer – Trilogy

Published on 16th June 2015 | by Bob Mulvey

Deluxe 3 Disc Edition including 5.1 Mix There’s no potted history of the band included here, and after 43 years, I can’t imagine Emerson Lake & Palmer’s third studio album needing any introduction either. Certainly not in a... Read More

Burnin Red Ivanhoe – W.W.W.

Published on 6th June 2015 | by Roger Trenwith

Crooked Mouth - One Bright Midnight

Crooked Mouth – One Bright Midnight

Published on 3rd June 2015 | by Bob Mulvey

Constantly reviewing new albums does have its downside, especially as it seldom allows the time to reflect upon or backtrack to albums reviewed in the past. So always a pleasant treat when a new offering allows... Read More

KoMaRa – KoMaRa

Published on 30th May 2015 | by Roger Trenwith

Formed in November 2014, KoMaRa consist of drummer and percussionist Pat Mastelotto, who should need no introduction, Slovakian guitarist David Kollar, and trumpeter Paolo Raineri. Paolo Raineri is a well known figure in progressive jazz, and... Read More
