Just received today.
I can't begin to start with, how good this album is. Prog Metal at its very best. Blowing my tiny little mind.[emoji2962]

Hi Proggers,

 

An afternoon of Prog Rock CDs that arrived last week and ripping them as flacs to a SSD. First up, Nine Stones Close - One Eye On The Sunrise

From www.progarchives.com

 

When one has raved over an album by a band, there is always a small concern when the next one arrives that it may not be in the same league so it was a little hesitantly that I started playing this one when it arrived. Happily I can report that I had absolutely nothing to worry about! The follow-up from 'Traces' is in a similar vein, but perhaps with just a little more polish and finesse. Adrian Jones Adrian (Numb, Lie Big) Brendan Eyre (Riversea) and Marc Atkinson (Mandalaband, Riversea) have been joined now by Peter Vink (Q65/Ayreon/Star One/Finch) and Pieter van Hoorn (Knight Area) and the result is yet another extremely layered and complex album with elements of Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, Marillion and Flower Kings.
If you want to hear just how majestic symphonic prog can be then look no further than "Janus" where every member has a chance to shine, and even simple repeated piano arpeggios can have a major impact on the overall sound.

Just listened to this on Qobuz. Loved it. Am now playing their Traces album. Loving that too. Have just downloaded those two albums plus their latest, Leaves. This is bankrupting me. Again.

I’m not sure what rock I was under when this was released, Sweet Oblivion.

This is a collaboration of DGM mastermind Simone Mularoni and legendary Geoff Tate with a selection of high-end musicians who have brought us an exceptional album. Working to create that classic sound that Tate made famous in the 90s with his former band Queensryche mixed with the guitar riffs and solos more commonly associated with prog rock, it is quite the genius album.

I know, time seems to stop when you order on line. Be worth the wait though, especially " Night " . It's getting a hammering on my tt.
