This Greatest Hits double-disc release is both utterly deceiving and painfully disappointing, since its tracks are made up of fabricated instrumental pieces of Rick Wakeman’s album cuts. Played by Wakeman, the songs are glossed-over remakes that may be true to their original note form, but are not the actual tracks from their previously released albums. Coming off like synthesized Muzak, popular favorites such as “Merlin the Magician,” “The Journey,” and Yes’ “Starship Trooper” lack depth, color, or energy, with only their familiar rhythms and melodies remainingRead More

An eye-opening trip to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury during the summer of 1967 inspired British-born drummer Chris Judge Smith to compose a list of possible names for the rock group he wished to form. Upon his return to Manchester University, he began performing with singer/songwriter Peter Hammill and keyboardist Nick Peame; employing one of the names from Judge Smith’s list, the band dubbed itself Van der Graaf Generator (after a machine which creates static electricity), eventually earning an intense cult following as one of the era’s preeminent art rock groups.

Just when you thought the greatest and most venerable American prog band could get “none more prog,” along comes THE BREAKING OF THE WORLD, the best work of Glass Hammer’s career and, in some related fashion, their most progressive album thus far. This is not just album number fifteen in a list of fifteen sequential studio albums. Of course, there’s no such thingRead More

By all accounts, the somewhat unexpected 2014 King Crimson tour was a resounding success and Live at the Orpheum is the first offering for those who were unable to attend. The band had been reinvented with a combination of new and returning players and the set list consisted largely of tunes that hadn’t been performed live since the ’70s, if at all. The main wild card was the three-drummer front line, which easily could have turned into a messRead More
