Window To The Soul
Review by Josh Turner
Spock’s Beard is prog rock’s pop equivalent. Dream Theater is prog rock’s metal equivalent. And The Flower Kings are prog rock’s jazz equivalent. So what is GPS?

Review by Josh Turner
GPS was difficult to assess. While they were great, I felt as if they didn’t bring their A-game.

Erik Norlander - And Friends - Live in St. Petersburg DVD
Review by Gary Hill
As to be expected from Erik Norlander and his friends, the newly released DVD documenting his landmark concert in St. Petersburg, Russia (and chronicling the three-month 2004 tour as they traveled east from California to the Russian city) is another must-have from this group. It contains 90 minutes and 15 songs from the St. Petersburg concert, which features the vocals of Lana Lane and Kelly Keeling.

Erik Norlander - Hommage Symphonique
Review by Gary Hill
I know there are those out there who would consider that a CD of covers is not worthy of being a real release. Well, I’m here to tell you that if you have that attitude you might miss out on what could well be the best prog disc of the year.

Erik Norlander - Into the Sunset
Review by Gary Hill
This solo release from Rocket Scientist Erik Norlander is a very strong CD. He enlists the aid of quite a few of his friends to pull the disc together, and the result a very solid prog CD with some metallic elements.

Spock's Beard - Live
Review by Gary Hill
I have to admit, I haven’t seen Spock’s Beard live since the departure of Neal Morse. While this wasn’t a conscious decision, I have to admit to some trepidation about how the band would sound without their former front man.

Spock's Beard - Live DVD
Review by Gary Hill
I remember when I heard Spock’s Beard for the first time way back when I wasn’t really blown away by them. Mind you, I enjoyed their CD’s enough, but they just didn’t seem to have any “magic” to them.
