No, no, Erik, if you have something to complain about you should be always allowed to do it.
OK, you don't owe me a thing Wink.

No problem Eugene, if I am complaining about hardly any reactions from fellow collaborators, I am not allowed to complain about your 'copycat-reaction ' Wink ..!

Might be likely candidates for Art Rock... Unfortunately, at the moment we're swamped with suggestions, but if you can wait for a bit we'll try to give that a listen, and possibly add them to our chart.

haha, Erik you owe me for spreading your word...
LOL
Seriously, it was my spontaneous reaction when I saw a familiar band's name.
I was contemplating to buy this album in combination with some others, but was afraid it will turn out to be too sweet for my tastes, and your review convinced me that I was probably right, so I postponed buying it, but the name of a band just got stuck in my head - well, Combination Head it was.

Well, Wayward Son, say no more, last week I asked attention for Chilean band Astralis, this resulted in only a few reactions while many fellow collaborators were posting and debating frequently non-prog topics on the Forum, very frustrating and it happens more and more, the huge success of the Forum as a 'bla-bla-place' has turned into real threat for postings like yours Unhappy .....
 
Back to Combination Head, see Eugene his post LOL !

That's what Erik said about them
 
 
COMBINATION HEADCombination Head
album%20cover

- This is a new UK progrock formation featuring a keyboardplayer, guitarist/bass player and three different drummers for the eight compositions. Their eponymous, instrumental debut CD delivers fluent and dynamic music with a lush keyboard sound (including a wide range of ‘vintage keyboards’) and great interplay by the musicians. The sound is melodic and very pleasant, I cannot trace weak songs and especially the work on the Hammond organ is outstanding like in Clover RD R.B.C. (captivating and alternating, from dreamy with piano to compelling with a bluesy Hammond sound and an accellaration with fiery guitar) and Devonshire Crescent (swirling solo and splendid drumming). Halfway this CD a mellow, very beautiful classical piano piece is a short mellow interlude but in general Combination Head delivers swinging tracks like the Jeff Beck (Wired-era) sounding The Bonk (flashy synthesizer – and biting electric guitar solo along powerful Hammond runs), the ELP-inspired Clover RD DEF (exciting Hammond – and Moog sound and howling guitar) and the hypnotizing, electronic oriented Fourteen (a slow rhythm with spacey synthesizers). The final song For What? Is a very strong ‘musical goodbey’: a fluent rhythm with fiery guitar and a swinging end featuring a spectacular synthesizer solo and again fiery guitar.

Highly recommended!

My rating: 3,5 stars

It´s strange that the Sex Pistols receives over 20 posts, but when a real progressive band is suggested the thread is forgotten and pushed to the back.
Any other opinions on this band?

I discovered this excellent band the other day. I don´t think they are listed here.

Here are some samples (What genre would you put them in?)
