Izz
CD Reviews
Ampersand Volume I
Review by Josh Turner
For those not already familiar with Izz, this is one of the best bands of the genre. As for their sound, there are many similarities to Spock's Beard in their songwriting and style.

Ampersand, Volume 2
Review by Gary Hill
This new album is very intriguing. The music changes a lot from song to song.

Don't Panic
Review by Gary Hill
This new release from Izz could well be their best yet. It's also a contender to land on my "best of 2019" list. The modern take on classic prog sounds works very well.

My River Flows
Review by Steve Alspach
Sometimes Amazon steers you right. I was on a CD-buying binge a few weeks ago and one of the links was to a band called Izz. "My River Flows," the fourth album by this NYC outfit, was ripe for the pickins, and I've found it to be full of well-crafted and innovative songs.

Sliver of A Sun
Review by Gary Hill

Definitely progressive rock in the '70's tradition, this album takes elements of many classic prog bands and combines them into a mix all their own. Among the bands who Izz seems to give a stylistic nod to are Yes, Genesis, UK, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and Renaissance.

The Darkened Room
Review by Gary Hill
I haven’t heard an Izz album in quite a few years. I have to say, the band has done nothing but get better in that time.

Laura Meade - Remedium
Review by Gary Hill

This album from Laura Meade is a unique and intriguing pleasure. It's hard to really pin down to a musical style, beyond the vague "progressive rock" heading.
