Very High Frequency
Review by Gary Hill
What an amazing set this is. In fact, it is likely to make my “best of 2014” list.

Derek Sherinian - Blood of the Snake
Review by Gary Hill
Derek Sherinian always seems to be looking for new ways to stretch out musically and this time around he's brought a lot of friends on board to help him in that process. The end result is Blood of the Snake, a disc that is arguably his most diverse. It also might well be his strongest album ever.

Lana Lane - Covers Collection
Review by Gary Hill
Lana Lane has one of the best voices in prog rock, and her band seems to do a better job of combining prog and harder textures in a palatable and accessible melange of sound. Here the group turns their attention to nothing but covers, and it is a mixed bag.

Lana Lane - Gemini
Review by Gary Hill
Like the new Erik Norlander disc, this one is an album of covers. While this CD works quite well, I’d have to say I prefer the other one.

Derek Sherinian - Inertia
Review by Gary Hill

With this CD Sherinian continues his tradition of creating hard edged prog that is quite firmly rooted in fusion. The disc succeeds very well in creating an energetic and considerably potent instrumental mode that sends the listener on a major journey.

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.

Review by Gary Hill
I’ve been a big fan of Derek Sherinian for years and it seems like every album he does is a climb above the one that preceded it.

Review by Gary Hill

Derek Sherinian - Planet X
Review by Gary Hill
This one really comes as a surprise to many. Coming from such gigs as Alice Cooper`s band and Kiss, when Sherinian joined Dream Theater, he was perceived as more the rock and roll type of style, and less prog.

Lana Lane - Project Shangri-La
Review by Gary Hill
In the liner notes to this album Lane says that she and Erik Norlander (her husband and main musical cohort) were just starting work for this album when the tragedy of September 11th, 2001 occurred. She goes on to speak about how hard it was to start the project in the midst of all that.

Lana Lane - Secrets of Astrology
Review by Gary Hill
Lana Lane has a spectacular voice. Honestly, any review of a CD of hers, could at least start with, if not consist almost entirely of that statement.

Carmine Appice - Ultimate Guitar Zeus
Review by Gary Hill
An album like this could be a tricky venture. Essentially the concept is a series of songs with the same basic core band.
