Fall of the Leafe - Aerolithe Review by Gary Hill When you talk about hard-edged neo-prog the easy approach is to compare it to Dream Theater. Well, there are moments here that do call to mind that band a bit, but really that influence is understated and pretty minor. More
Far Corner - Far Corner Review by Josh Turner This is unbelievably accessible for avant-garde. As far as instrumental music goes, it's as catchy and experimental as Kopecky. More
Farflung - A Wound in Eternity Review by Gary Hill I should start with a few words about the inclusion of this review in the progressive rock section. Most people consider space rock to be a sub-genre within progressive rock. More
Farpoint - First Light Review by Josh Turner There is a lot of debate over what may or may not be progressive rock. Farpoint would be a great place to start for anyone who might be wondering. More
Farpoint - Grace Review by Josh Turner The album is equal to the debut, but not entirely equivalent. The music is booming and bombastic in this release. More
Ferris Mudd - Ferris Mudd Review by Bill Knispel Ferris Mudd (the band) is a trio hailing from Alabama. Comprised of Steve Richard (lead vocals, lead guitar, guitar synth, acoustic guitar), Danny Dicus (bass, acoustic guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), and Lester Meredith (drums, percussion, keyboards, acoustic guitar, backing vocals), the band writes and performs progressive rock with a heavy melodic emphasis. More
Fish - Internal Exile Review by Gary Hill The lineup on this album is Fish(Derek W. Dick), Mickey Simmonds, Robin Boult, Frank Usher, David Paton, Ethan Johns, Ted McKenna and assorted side-musicians. Internal Exile was released in 1992.
Fish - Field of Crows Review by Steve Alspach Scotland's favorite 6'5" singer (well, how many are there, really?) returned in 2003 with a new CD. Using the figure of the crow as a thematic center to the album, there is a unity to many of the songs in this CD. More
Fish - Raingods With Zippos Review by Gary Hill While moving in fresh and original directions, this album also captures some of the magic of Fish`s former band Marillion. It seems to take progressive rock to another stage, utilizing much of the magic and beauty of the format, while bringing a new accessibility to the style.
Fish - Yang Review by Gary Hill Part of a 2 CD combination of "Yin" and "Yang", this disc is a collection of Fish rarities and alternate takes. The reworks of Marillion tracks are some of the highlights of the album, but really it is all quite interesting. More
Fish - Yin Review by Gary Hill Along with the companion CD "Yang", this album contains many rarities, reworkings ad other items of interest from Fish's career. This one is especially noteable because of the appearance of Steve Howe (Fish's take on "Time and a Word") and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band ("Boston Tea Party"). More
Fish - 13th Star Review by Gary Hill I first became a fan of Fish in his Marillion days. For my money the CD’s that group released when he was the front man were the best of their career. More
Josh Fix - Free At Last Review by Gary Hill On the one hand this is some killer pop rock. On the other hand it’s progressive rock in the same way that Queen was progressive rock. More
Flash - Flash Review by Gary Hill This was the first studio album from Peter Banks’ post Yes band Flash.
Flash - In The Can Review by Gary Hill The second album from Peter Banks’ first post Yes band, this one finds the group producing some of the best material. More
Pamela Fleming - Fearless Dreamer Review by Gary Hill Essentially a jazz album, this work does include influences of prog rock and more pop oriented music. The disc is a very enjoyable listen and features some fine musicianship from all of the players. More
Pamela Fleming - and Fearless Dreamer - Climb Review by Gary Hill Pam Fleming's second CD, Climb continues with the progressive rock rooted firmly in jazz fashion that her first disc presented. The disc is a fairly sedate one, but a definite winner. More
The Flower Kings - The Sum of No Evil Review by Josh Turner When I receive a Flower Kings’ album, it’s a personal event of the utmost importance. The only problem is finding a long-enough lunch, a shady tree to idle under, or a stretch of asphalt that’s sufficiently-straight.
The Flower Kings - Paradox Hotel Review by Steve Alspach You gotta admire the Flower Kings' work ethic. On the heels of Roine's solo album "Wall Street Voodoo" comes the latest album from Sweden's no. 1 progressive group, and it's a 2-CD set to boot. More
The Flower Kings - Adam and Eve Review by Steve Alspach They're nothing if not prolific. Sweden's Flower Kings are back with another excellent offering of lengthy numbers and shorter, more accessible tunes. More
The Flower Kings - Unfold The Future Review by Steve Alspach Sweden's most prolific progressive band returns with another two-CD album of songs that shows the band's willingness to try any and all musical styles. Fans of this band will find this to be another excellent album in the band's catalogue. More
The Flower Kings - The Rainmaker Review by Gary Hill The Flower Kings return with their latest dishing of their particular flavor of progressive rock. The group typically has a style that is very hard for journalists to keep up with because it changes so briefly. More
The Flower Kings - Space Revolver Review by Gary Hill The newest release from the Flower Kings finds them both staying true to their trademark sound and moving in new and unusual directions. We definitely find signs of both on this potent album More
The Flower Kings - Stardust We Are Review by Gary Hill This album is the latest by Swedish band The Flower Kings. Featuring a fresh approach on influences from many classic prog bands, this is a strong release. More
The Flower Kings - Flower Power Review by Gary Hill The Flower Kings sound contains elements and leanings of the classic prog of the '70's, but is definitely still their own. Since the Stardust We Are disc, the band's writing skills seem to have matured.
The Flower Kings - Alive on Planet Earth Review by Gary Hill This live album by The Flower Kings shows that they are not just a studio phenomenon. The disc should be evidence to the prog fan that this band is one to catch live as well. More
Fluid Time - Live at JJ Kelly's Review by Gary Hill This live disc is a first release of sorts from this Chicago area band. The CD is not really an official release, but just something that they put out to give people a chance to hear them at home. More
Forever Einstein - Racket Science Review by Gary Hill I know it's early in the year, but I can say with certainty that Forever Einstein have cinched at least a couple of titles with their latest release. The winner for 2005 for the most unusual and creative song titles (and longest ones, too) will almost positively go to Forever Einstein. More
Jack Foster III - Tame Until Hungry Review by Gary Hill Jack Foster III is building up quite a catalog of killer hard-edged modern progressive rock. Tame Until Hungry is his latest, and as in the past he’s joined by (among others) Trent Gardner and Robert Berry on this.
Jack Foster III - Raptorgnosis Review by Gary Hill While I don't think this entire album truly qualifies as progressive rock, much of it does. Add to that fact the presence of prog rockers Trent Gardner and Robert Berry and it should be obvious why I put the disc into that category. More
Fractal - Sequitur Review by Gary Hill This is an intriguing disc that melds newer prog stylings (think Radiohead and Porcupine Tree) with modern King Crimson and older stuff like Kansas, Pink Floyd and Yes.
John Orr Franklin - Transformation Review by Gary Hill John Orr Franklin regards his music as progressive rock, and I agree. It seems that many prog purists would be likely to disagree, though.
Rob Fried - Wind Song Review by Gary Hill Progressive rock is an elusive beast to pin down, particularly when it gets into fusion.
Fripp & Eno - Beyond Even (1992-2006) Review by G. W. Hill This is a collection of previously unreleased collaborations between Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. As one might imagine the majority of this music is firmly rooted in atmospheric territory.
Robert Fripp - Exposure Review by Steve Alspach Robert Fripp's first solo album (not counting the side projects with Brian Eno) was considered "A Day in the Life" for the 1970s. Fripp proves himself to be the "21st Century Schizoid Man" because this album runs the gamut from harsh metal to more ambient dreamscapes. More
Frost - Milliontown Review by Josh Turner I’m sure you’ve heard of a one-hit wonder. Well, that usually refers to a single sing-able song. In this case, this entity could be categorized under a classification that’s much rarer: a one-album-wonder.
