I Know You Well Miss Clara - Chapter One
Review by Gary Hill
What an odd name for a band.

Ice Age - The Great Divide
Review by G. W. Hill
It would be easy to describe this album by saying that it is very Dream Theater influenced. It would also be somewhat inaccurate. Yes, there are a lot of Dream Theater influences throughout, but there are other leanings here as well.

Ice Age - Liberation
Review by Gary Hill
Ice Age, Josh Pincus, Jimmy Pappas, Hal Aponte and Arron DiCesare have released Liberation, the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut, The Great Divide.

Il Cerchio d'Oro - Dedalo E Icaro
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a cool album. It has a lot of classic prog built into it, but also fusion and many other things.

More
Il Rumore Bianco - Mediocrazia
Review by Gary Hill
This short release (four tracks, roughly half an hour) is quite strong.

Illusion - Out of the Mist/Illusion
Review by Steve Alspach
There are fewer musical bedfellows stranger than the Yardbirds and Renaissance. The seminal 1960s blues-psychedelia-based band featuring Beck, Clapton, and Page seem to have little in common with the group that put the rock in Rachmaninov.

Imagery - The Inner Journey
Review by Gary Hill
The mix of sounds on this is quite cool.

More
iNFiNiEN - Light at the Endless Tunnel
Review by Gary Hill
This is the new album from these guys. They are an incredibly creative act.

More
Ingranaggi della Valle - In Hoc Signo
Review by Gary Hill
Italian prog is a sub-genre all its own. There are people thoroughly devoted to the musical style.

More
Ingranaggi della Valle - Warm Spaced Blue
Review by Gary Hill
This is such a cool album. It's modern in some ways, but really the grounding is within the more old school type of prog. There are symphonic things here, jazzy prog elements and more. 

More
Innsmouth Gold - Illustrations of Madness
Review by Gary Hill
This set is based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft. It’s theatrical and often atmospheric.

More
Innsmouth Gold - Ritual and Dream
Review by Gary Hill
Based on H.P. Lovecraft, this album is suitably creepy.

More
Intelligent Music Project II - My Kind O’ Lovin’
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a diverse set, covering things from jazz to hard rock, progressive rock and more.

More
Intelligent Music Project III - Touching the Divine
Review by Gary Hill
This set is quite effective. It’s prog rock, but in a very AOR sense.

More
IO - Strange Tales From The Urban Circle
Review by G. W. Hill
In fairly sedate prog modes, this is Canadian prog. The band seems a lot more interested in creating strong melody lines and coherent songs than they are in who is going to take a solo and in what way to enshrine the instrumental break.
More
IQ - The Seventh House
Review by Steve Alspach
I don't know what it is about bands like IQ that I find endearing - well, they're not one of those "bobblehead" bands that are springing up on every corner, for one thing - but I get the impression that they do what they do not to make a grand statement, but simply because it probably never occurred to them to do anything else.
More
IQ - Dark Matter
Review by Steve Alspach
Having reviewed the last Jadis album, my curiosity was piqued by the fact that two of the band members were from IQ. I found their latest CD (independent CD stores - ya gotta love 'em), and gave it a spin.
More
It Bites - Eat Me In St. Louis
Review by John Pierpoint
This was the last studio album from the original line-up of It Bites.

More
It's Just Craig - Dark Corners
Review by Gary Hill
This isn't the tightest fit under progressive rock, but it works in that category.

More
Ivory Tower Project - How Much More?
Review by Gary Hill
This act is billed as "classic rock." I'm not sure that is a real genre.

More
Izz - Ampersand Volume I
Review by Josh Turner
For those not already familiar with Izz, this is one of the best bands of the genre. As for their sound, there are many similarities to Spock's Beard in their songwriting and style.
More
Izz - Sliver of A Sun
Review by G. W. Hill

Definitely progressive rock in the '70's tradition, this album takes elements of many classic prog bands and combines them into a mix all their own. Among the bands who Izz seems to give a stylistic nod to are Yes, Genesis, UK, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, and Renaissance.


More
Izz - Ampersand, Volume 2
Review by Gary Hill
This new album is very intriguing. The music changes a lot from song to song.
