progressive

some ramblings on progressive rock…i listened to an amazing soundboard recoring of pink floyd playing “dark side of the moon” live on November 16, 1974, one of the best concert recordings i own…i’ve been really enjoying a band from philadelphia called echolyn – they play very vocal-intensive progressive music that is hard to compare to anything else i have ever heard…marillion’s marbles is by far my favorite album of the last year, maybe the last ten – the opening with “invisible man” through the close with “neverland” is so powerful, and if you get this album, be sure to get the 2-disc set that contains the 17-minute opus “ocean cloud” one of the best progressive rock pieces ever.
