Air Conditioning
Review by Gary Hill

This new Curved Air remaster release is classy. The first disc has the original album in its remastered glory along with one bonus track.

Air Cut
Review by Gary Hill

This is a new re-mastered edition of a classic Curved Air disc. The music on this is a great mix of folk prog, psychedelia and more hard driving prog.

Live Atmosphere
Review by Gary Hill
This new live album from Curved Air is quite strong. In a lot of ways much of this reminds me of a proggier Jefferson Airplane.

North Star
Review by Gary Hill
The latest album from Curved Air, this album includes several new songs along with some reworkings of several classic Curved Air pieces and a few covers.

Phantasmagoria
Review by Steve Alspach
Curved Air was an English band with a lot of interesting little quirks. It's where Eddie Jobson and Stewart Copeland both got their starts, and it's the band that came out with the first picture disc (on its debut album, "Air Conditioning" - they should have spent the time and money cleaning up the sound of the album).

Phantasmagoria: Remastered & Expanded Edition
Review by Gary Hill

This is a great new release. It includes a remastered version of the Phantasmagoria album along with some extra tracks. If that was all you got, it would be worth having.

Curved Air - Live at London’s High Voltage Festival, July, 2011
Review by Alison Reijman
On a personal note, this was the first prog band your humble reviewer got into at an incredibly tender age but they are back touring extensively and sound as vibrant and edgy as ever.

This band is just so cool. They really are rooted in old school progressive rock, but there is folk music and some world sound here, too.

This was originally released as a double LP on vinyl.  It actually almost feels like two different albums.

Sonja Kristina - Sonja Kristina: Anthology
Review by Gary Hill

I've put this under Sonja Kristina solo, but technically speaking, it's part of the Curved Air rarities series. This double disc set has some intriguing stuff.

Mask - Technopia
Review by Gary Hill
It’s still early and this is possibly the first 2010 disc I’ve heard – in fact, I’m pretty sure it is (since I often get discs weeks before release it's hard to be positive).

Sky - The Studio Albums: 1979-1987 Box Set

Considered by many to be one of the greatest prog albums of all time, it is a shame that the line-up lasted only one album and tour.

Darryl Way - Ultra Violins
Review by G. W. Hill

Is this progressive music? Yes. Is it progressive rock? I don’t know.

Darryl Way - Vivaldi's Four Seasons in Rock
Review by Gary Hill

The very act of combining rock music with classical qualifies music to land in progressive rock in my opinion. Of course, Darryl Way gets classified there at Music Street Journal anyway.
