I put together a list of all the new releases of January 2019 to make it easier for everyone to do reviews on all the new stuff.  I made a New Year’s Resolution to try to make reviewing new releases a priority, and have found some really great discoveries while doing so.  There are some that I didn’t get to, but I found out that there are several out there that didn’t get any other reviews than the ones that I posted.  I want to put this list out on a monthly basis in order to hopefully help other members see what is new and provide more reviews on the new releases that get forgotten about and slip into oblivion. 

 

Anyway, here is the list of what was released last month.  I am sure I have missed some, so feel free to add to the list, but make sure they are listed on this site first.  If they are not, and you think they should be on Prog Archives, then go into the thread that is created for that purpose, namely “Suggest New Bands and Artists”.

1/25

Lost Crowns - "Every Night Something Happens" - RIO/Avant Prog 
Celeste - "Il Resveglio del Principe"  Rock Italiano Progressivo   Released 1/24
Adventure - "New Horizon"  Symphonic Prog   Released 1/25
Evergrey - "The Atlantic"  Progressive Metal   Released 1/25

Sonora Sunrise - "The Route Through the Canyon"  Released 1/16
Stephan Thelen - "Fractal Guitar"  RIO/Avant Prog   Released 1/18
 

 

As you can see, this is quite a list.  I tried to review everyone of them, but was unable to do them all, so I decided not to review live albums unless requested by the artist.  There were a few others that I didn’t get to that I am hoping to.  But, this is a daunting task and so your help is much appreciated.  These artists rely on our reviews to help spread their music around.  Just pick a few that you think you would be interested in or do as many as you want.  Most of them are available for streaming on Bandcamp or YouTube and other places.  You might find something you really like, like I did.

 

Here are my top picks (in no particular order, remember I missed a few):

1)     Mono – “No Where, Now Here”

2)     Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov – “Adventures at the Babooniumfest 2017”

3)     Buke and Gase – “Scholars”

4)     Helium Horse Fly – “Hollowed”

5)   Magnesis – “Alice au Pays des Delires” (1st disc)

      6)   Lost Crowns - "Every Night Something Happens"
      7)   Celeste - "Il Risveglio del Principe"
      8)   Evergrey - "The Atlantic"

 

 

Honorable Mentions:

1)     Mad Fellaz – “Mad Fellaz III

2)     Samuel Cadima – “Outros Horizontes”

3)     Michael Zucker – “Strawberry Melt”

 

Feel free to add comments or add any that I may have forgot and I will edit this list. 

Any suggestions will help as I plan on doing this every month, but feel free to review any time!

Actually I did notice that you entered a lot of the new releases and that was extremely helpful.  I really appreciated that most of the NRs were already added to the database thanks to your work!  Clap  This way I could spend more time reviewing.

This album is incredible and I'd be very surprised if it isn't sitting at #1 on my list come December.

I have heard it and I reviewed it.  It's pretty standard Santana with touches of R&B and jazz fusion, made up of 3 new tracks and 2 edited versions.

Great job, TCat! Also good job with all the new 2019 reviews. I don't keep up with new things as much as i should because there's so much old stuff lurking out there! This is a valuable resource indeed :)

Thanks Silly Puppy.  When there are a lot of new releases like there have been in the last 2 - 3 weeks, I get behind and then start to wish I can review something more familiar, but I'm going to keep trying.  I think I'm behind like 10 new releases now and it seems I will never catch up.  So you'll see something reviewed from my personal collection once in a while.
