I’m a freelance writer/blogger that started doing reviews nine years ago. I’m a fan of Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Heavy Metal, and Jazz Rock. Also a musician for 20 years. Music has been my friend since listening to the Beatles when I was a little boy. It wasn’t until I discovered Pink Floyd 20 years ago and it changed my life. Geek also, but the Progressive genre has still kept me going from day one. And there’s no stop sign for me. I also have a blog site in which I also do reviews since 2008 entitled, Music from the Other Side of the Room.

Jane Weaver – Love in Constant Spectacle

Almost an imaginative art house movie that Weaver herself has unleashed to her listeners as we go inside the theatre, to give an understanding on why we go to the movies.

Grice – Mordant Lake

A surreal, yet significant piece of work that’ll take you towards the town to reveal more clues that the small town has hidden behind closed doors.

K’mono – Mind Out of Mind

K’mono are the masters when it comes to prog-rock by keeping the flaming fires burning brighter than ever.

Anta – Organesson

It puts you right over the edge of the cliff, not knowing when you are going to make that jump and launch your parachute at the right time, at the right place before making a soft landing.

Sverre Knut Johansen – Still Time

Still Time may not be for the faint of heart, but what Johansen has done is to capture the sounds of the natural world in all of its tricky momentum.

OU – II: Frailty

They’ve come back stronger than ever by unleashing more mind-blowing results to give you what they got. And believe me, if you’re very new to the band’s music, this one should be in your record shelves, right about now.

Sachi Kobayashi – Lamentations

Lamentations may not be for the faint of heart. It’ll take repeatable listens to see what Sachi herself was trying to do. And it’s quite a mysterious sense of beauty that is unfolding in front of your very eyes.

Louise Patricia Crane – Netherworld

Another crowning return for Crane to deliver another welcoming return after her 2020 debut during the pandemic. She’s here to stay, and she’s never turning back.

Tu-Ner – Tu-Ner For Lovers

Tu-Ner’s music may not be for the faint of heart. Yes, it may not be everyone’s cup of tea per se, but there is a strong sense of wisdom behind the three-piece.

Hollan Holmes – Sacred Places

An imaginative documentary covering the landscape of the lone star state.

Christian Holm-Svendsen with Daniel Sommer and Mariusz Prasniewski – Totem

Totem is a true form of jazz music like you’ve never heard it before.

Daniel Davies – Ghost of the Heart

More than just a prog-rock album, but a heavy, moody, and metallic attitude that would take you upwards to the skies above.

Ozric Tentacles – Lotus Unfolding

Ozric Tentacles have all of the right ingredients they needed to bring their sculpture to life. And we have experienced a true sense of wisdom that is placed in front of our very eyes on Lotus Unfolding.

CAN – Live in Aston 1977

A trip down memory lane to close your eyes and imagine yourself being at the university, rooting for CAN.

Proud Peasant – Communion

It’s one of those albums that is very much an imaginative movie inside your head as Rapstine takes listeners on this magic carpet ride that’ll keep you on your toes and what to expect when you put this album on from beginning to end.

White Willow – Sacrament

Sacrament is the album that puts you right in the middle of danger, horror, eerie stories coming to life, and the ascending nightmare that’ll take you closer to the edge and descend into madness.

Rascal Reporters – The Strainge Case of Steve

It is a weird, odd, strange, but off-the-wall fun with its avant-rock approach and nod to its Canterbury milkshake that is waiting for you after finishing a big meal that you had for lunch.

Marjana Semkina – SIRIN

An album filled with strength and wisdom.

North Sea Echoes – Really Good Terrible Things

Whether it’ll move you or not, you have to give both Adler and Matheos credit to break free from their metal roots. They know have to try something different, this album is quite the trip.

Benjamin Croft – We Are Here to Help

This album is a well-delivered release that’ll be in your collection, for the rest of time.

Bass Communion – The Itself of Itself

One of those albums that’ll need repeatable listens to get an understanding on why Wilson himself has pushed the envelope, and go beyond that heavy rotation.
