2 stars A mix of cows and birds, I would say.

Some of the stuff here is not what I would call prog rock. The Kinks, Small Faces and Humble Pie is as much progressive rock as I am a cat. But some of the tracks fits the bill well. Soft Machine and ELP is well represented. So is The Nice. Of the three CDs, they should had scrapped some songs and released it as a double CD just to call it a prog rock sampler. The inclusion of Fruupp, Gryphon, Comus and Marsupilami gets both thumbs up from me.

This title has been and will probably still be sold very cheap on both Amazon and Ebay in the future. Some may fall for it and they get good value for that price. But for hardcore prog rock fans like most of us, this sampler is as interesting as a wet towel. In other words; if you have a relative who you want to give a nice present which is cheap and looks impressive; give them either the BEST PROG ROCK ALBUM IN THE WORLD... EVER sampler or this one. it is a good Christmas present idea. They may even like the music. For prog rockers with good taste; this is one sampler best avoided.
