Progressive Rock CD Reviews

Luna Kiss

Gravity

Review by Gary Hill

I know a lot of people will probably argue with this making it to progressive rock. I can’t see this combination of sounds landing anywhere else, though. Whatever label you apply to this, though, I really like this four song EP.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Gravity

Heavy, yet also quite proggy, this is slow and very cool. It drops way down for the vocals. There are some cool changes in this cut. Parts of it are harder rocking. There is a dreamy modern prog quality to quite a bit of this. Yet, it’s also built on some alternative rock in a lot of ways. The instrumental exploration later in the track is all prog. I love the bass in that section.

Hart
This is a more purely alternative rock based song. That said, some of the sections and particularly part of the vocal arrangements contain definite prog rock leanings.
Close
A more high energy piece, this does a great job of combining those prog and alternative rock elements. This is one of the best songs here really. It has some great sounds and cool riffs and hooks.
Monochrome
This is creepy and rather psychedelic. It’s definitely modern progressive rock. It’s a little unsettling, yet very dramatic. It gets heavier and harder rocking on the closing movement.
