^ Totally agreed. And speaking of this, when reviewing a free download album, it would be great if reviewers specified this somewhere with caps or by bolding. That helped me finding some nice free albums by reading the reviews on the homepage.

An update of the free dowload albums list would be in order, I guess.

Hint, hint........

Ideally, we should have an own Collab doing this because there will be a lot more free albums out there now with the restructure of the music industry.

Please download and review. That's why these albums are there. To be reviewed and hopefully; the artist will be able to attract record labels and gigs on the back of some reviews in ProgArchives. Which then again will benefit our community and the prog rock scene. 

Please, please keep this in mind.


I'm hoping to review the Larsen Rupin albums before long as they're all available to listen to on Daniel Spahni's website.  I was going to do the debut last night, actually, but my mind essentially blanked when I tried to write about it.

But can prog'rs see modern dance in Pink Floyd ... that is the $10 dollar question of tomorrow!
that's also about how much a ticket to one of those shows would've been Cool .. and no I don't think we're listing bootlegs at all

BTW the Floyd boots for '75 are also outstanding

Hi,
 
That's really weird .. I was there at the time ... and the only releases were "Chicago" and "Chicago" ... and in the first pressings there were no numbers, only the color was different. This was updated after the first pressing, as it caused some attention in the media that made fun of how would anyone know which album it was, in an article on the Sun Times.
 
Weird .. still can't find those albums anywhere! But I can review Chicago 1 and Chicago 2 ... easily enough ... since I happen to think that was the "progressive" movement Chicago style, although at the time Sons of Champlin were not as well known but it was often thought they were better, though with less horns.
 
The likelyhood is that those three I listed are the SINGLES ... and I am not sure that we should review the singles at all, and we might have to do some cleaning ... specially since we're trying to be a "progressive" board ... and we want to bring the music out "pop music" and "hit" status ... though 25 or 6 to 4 did do very well as a single. I still maintain that we should concentrate on the artist and the albums/music ... and not the singles.

Not having been a regular visitor for a while, I forgot there was such a thread for unreviewed albums. Anyway, here's two albums that are unreviewed no longer - and both of them highly recommended:

Beppe Crovella - What's Rattlin' on the Moon? (http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=303651)
Afroskull - To Obscurity and Beyond (http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=303905)

Hi,
 
I give up ...
 
I can't even find the list of lists of all the listings anywhere -- for things that need to be done.
 
Sorry ... I'm partially blind and these invisible links don't cut it! (3 right eye surgeries)

Hmm, the list is too long to itemise copy into a forum thread so has to remain as a dynamic SQL Query of the database - to date it contains 12,673 unreviewed releases:

That list also includes live albums, compilations, box sets, promos, fanclub releases and singles as they form a "collectable" part of any artists official discograhy, not just the studio albums. Since many of those are incredibly rare it is unlikely that reviews will be possible for all of them, but there is always at least one fan who has a copy of something we list and maybe, just maybe, they'll reveiw it for us one day.
What?

Hi,

 
Just sent the start up, and rough draft, of what I am putting together for "Carmen", to Dean for a quick evaluation/suggestions ... hopefully he won't tell me to get stuffed!
 
Where do I send it when done, btw? ... just posting it, would require some clean up and detail to help make it clearer and better. I'm doing all 4 albums and the band information all in one, as it makes better sense, than making it look like it's just a bunch of songs.
 
When I get done with this, I will attempt Alquin, and hopefully I can come up with something. After that, I'm thinking that Battiato would be fun to work on, but haven't decided yet.
 
I'm actually wanting to tackle that Syd Barrett album, but I am not interested in fighting a giant hogweed ... in my book, Madcap Laughs and Octopus are two of the saddest albums I have ever heard in my life. To the point that I am not sure I know why I even keep them in my collection ... it is one of the all time "tragedies", and I am not convinced that drugs were the issue yet. And hopefully one day Kevin, Daevid, Robert and others, will tell us some more about this.
 
Thx

No worries. I got tonnes of unreviewed albums in my 8 feet high mountain of albums. I will get onto most of them before the end of 2015.

"First review of this album" only appears if the album has no rating.
