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.

The Unknown is Edge of Paradise’s imaginative movie brought to life

Despite the hiatus, it’s a relief to know that there’s a lot of spirit inside them

Comet Control – Inside The Sun

They have taken the genre into a breaking rule book momentum that screams out with pure motherfucking vengeance!

Be-Bop Deluxe – Live! In The Air Age

But 44 years later Live! In The Air Age is quite the revelation. It’s not just the original live album, but the live recordings that are on this box set, will give you a historical momentum on how much the band went through.

NMB – Innocence & Danger

It may take a few listens, but it’s quite a bit of departure to understand that the NMB are more than just a conceptual rock band.

Steve Hackett – Surrender of Silence

Recorded during the lockdown, Steve himself can still pack a punch like no other. But at times, he is like the mad scientist on his new album.
