Obvious - Obvious
Review by Gary Hill
This great disc combines elements of Pink Floyd, Hawkwind and other guitar dominated prog styles with a killer modern rock texture to achieve a wonderful result.

Oceans of Night - Midnight Rising
Review by G. W. Hill

It seems to me that each album from Oceans of Night is better than the one that came before it.

Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells 2003
Review by Steve Alspach
There's an old joke that goes "Why does a dog lick himself? Because he can." Some may credit the same reason as to why Mike Oldfield has remade Tubular Bells.
More
Mike Oldfield - Incantations
Review by Steve Alspach
"Incantations," released in 1978, may have been Mike Oldfield's most ambitious work to date.
More
Mike Oldfield - Exposed
Review by Steve Alspach
I suppose the main question anyone would want to ask regarding this CD is whether or not Mike Oldfield could pull off a live version of some of his larger works such as Incantations or Tubular Bells.

Mike Oldfield - Hergest Ridge
Review by John Pierpoint
Ah! The difficult second album! When your first album becomes an unexpected hit and makes you an international star, how do you follow it up?
More
Mike Oldfield - Ommadawn
Review by John Pierpoint

Completing the trilogy of early albums that began with Tubular Bells and continued with Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn manages to trump both earlier efforts with its sheer power and innovation.

Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Review by John Pierpoint

It's now 40 years since this classic and genre-busting album was first unleashed on the world.


More
Mike Oldfield - Platinum
Review by John Pierpoint

After a string of successful instrumental albums (Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn and Incantations), Mike Oldfield’s eagerly awaited next album Platinum came as something of a surprise to many.

Mike Oldfield - Songs of Distant Earth
Review by G. W. Hill

This album is apparently based on an Arthur C. Clarke book.


More
Omenopus - The Physician (CD Single)
Review by G. W. Hill

There are two songs here. One of them is based on a television show, but I won’t spoil it before the track listing by naming that show.


More
Omenopus - The Archives
Review by G. W. Hill

I have to say that I’ve liked everything from Omenopus. One thing remains constant with them (other than some personnel) and that’s change.

One World Project - Grief Never Grows Old
Review by Josh Turner
Out of all the progressive rock relief projects, this one features the biggest names: Barry and Robin Gibb (The Bee Gees), Paul Von Merten, Randell Kirsch and Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Boy George (Culture Club), Steve Winwood (Traffic), Rick Wakeman & Jon Anderson (Yes), Dewey Bunnell & Gerald Beckley (America), and a handful of others.

OnOffOn - Surrender Now
Review by Gary Hill
This debut release from OnOffOn features song writing that covers many musical styles. In fact, if one wanted to pick a shortcoming of the work, it covers too many styles.
More
OnOffOn - Your Mind
Review by Gary Hill
With their second album, OnOffOn have created one that is more consistent in tone, but very hard to classify. Certainly the jazz influences are strong here, and the band manage to pull together some strong blues influenced material.
More
Orbit Service - Twilight
Review by Gary Hill
This CD is a very intriguing, if not fully successful one. The main elements here are sort of a combination of the more prog oriented modern Radiohead and Pink Floyd, but there are other sounds present as well.
More
Øresund Space Collective - Organic Earthly Flotation
Review by G. W. Hill

This new album from Øresund Space Collective delivers.


More
Øresund Space Collective - Music for Pogonologists
Review by G. W. Hill

The newest album from Oresund Space Collective, this is a double disc set.


More
Orkestar MÉZÉ - Peasant Funk
Review by G. W. Hill

This is quite a cool album.


More
Orphan Project - Orphan Found
Review by Josh Turner
This orphan may just revolutionize the face of music if given the proper nurturing by the listening audience. Scores of influences can be heard in their music.
More
Osada Vida - Particles
Review by Larry Toering

This is a band from Poland that I've been enjoying lately, and they bring the prog like no other in their homeland.


More
Willie Oteri - Spiral Out
Review by Bruce Stringer
Produced, recorded and mixed by Ronan Chris Murphy, "Spiral Out" is an extension of the improvisational outings that made acts like John McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra and Tony Williams Lifetime, King Crimson and even Frank Zappa the uniquely memorable experience that made musical history.
More
The Oxford Coma - Morphine EP
Review by G. W. Hill

I can definitely see people arguing about this landing under progressive rock.


More
Ozone Quartet - Nocturne
Review by Vivian Lee
I'd been looking forward to another Ozone Quartet album since hearing their first, Fresh Blood, last March. With that album, I'd found a band whose sound embodied many of the odd time signatures, and eclectic influences of progressive rock married with fluid freeform jazz.
More
Ozric Tentacles - Waterfall Cities
Review by Steve Alspach
Ozric Tentacles has been at the forefront of the more ambient realm of progressive rock for about fifteen years. Their trademark "pick a key and go for it" style of musicianship allows the listener to use the imagination more than most bands allow.
More
Ozric Tentacles - Spirals in Hyperspace
Review by Steve Alspach
Those veteran cosmic rockers are back! Celebrating their 20th anniversary of exploring rock's cosmos, the Ozrics are back with their 20th album. Anchored by mainstays Ed Wynne, John Egan, Seaweed, and with Schoo and Pazza on drums and bass respectively, this disc once again takes the listener to points unknown.
