Have not been on this site for a few months. I actually thought that the site had petered out due to lack of interest.
I thought for nostalgia sake, l would check out some old posts amd see if l could find any new prog inspiration. And low and behold, l saw it was very much still active. I wondered why l hadn't received any posts, and l found that l had inadvertently unfollowed myself. What a prat. Not sure how l did that!
Anyway, now back onto one of my favorite sites.
So what's been happening you may ask yourselfs? Still buying the odd cd/record. But l got a bit frustrated with the snail pace mail delivery. At least it has gone from 8 weeks to around 5. But l suspect that it will go to several weeks +, due to another Covid wave going through the UK/Europe. Still got several coming. But l mainly go to Amazon Aus. They have been really good.
Anyway this is the few l have accumulated the last several weeks:
Airbag-A Day At The Beach.
In my humble opinion, this is the best prog album of 2020. Simply stupendous. My go to cd that never leaves my cd player.
I alternate it with this cd:
Anathema-A Sort of Homecoming, a live concert in Liverpool. The dvd included is superlative to watch. This is my favourite prog band at the moment. Pretty much have all their albums now. All in cd with the exception of a best of record (2) but more on that later. For mine, this is the perfect band. They are all talented multi-instrumentalists, and their vocal and harmonizing, quite frankly, still gives me goose bumps; no matter how many times l listen. Just heard that they are going into a permanent hiatus. Doesn't sound like they are coming back.
That being the case, l will scrutinize their back catologue.
Buy what ever LPs are available.
Anyway, I'm back and l will be posting heaps. Prog is my favorite genre now, pretty much all l listen to.
