Welcome to the 11th annual ProgArchives Collaborator’s Album of the Year contest!

As is our annual tradition here at ProgArchives, the collaborators that work tirelessly behind the scenes of the site – the admins, special collaborators, collaborators, Prog Reviewers, and VIP members – get together to discuss and exchange the best music of the year. Each collaborator submits a list of his or her favorite albums of the year, and I again had the honor to collate these lists into an exhaustive list of the best music this year had to offer.

 

The collaborators of this site shock me each and every year at the simply daunting amount of music that they are exposed to each year and the depth that they listen to each album. 2015 proved to be another stunning year for progressive music, and the array and variety of the music that was released shocked me more than any other year. Old favorites, new favorites, and everyone in between offered something new and exciting this year, and you can find just about anything on this list. This year, 61 voters selected a record-smashing 307 albums as their favorites from 2015.

 

Each year, I am simply shocked by the amount of quality music our collaborators are able to listen to, and 2014 proved no different! Many voters brought albums that sadly they were the only voter for, but it shows just how far our collaborators look for high quality progressive rock. This list, I feel, is an excellent source for anyone who wants to jump into the more obscure field of progressive rock. While of course every album could not have been evaluated by every voter, this provides an excellent snapshot of our site’s taste.

Now, without further ado,

The ProgArchives Collaborators’ Top Albums of 2015

1.   Anekdoten – Until All the Ghosts Are Gone

The masters are back – the Swedish experts in heavy prog haven’t released a studio album since 2007, and it seems that 8 years in between A Time of Day and Until All the Ghosts Are Gone were well spent. The band’s sixth studio effort tops our list this year and shows just how creative a band can be even after years out of the studio. Anekdoten rightly takes the top spot this year, and all we can do is they rush back to the studio to give us another delicious offering.

Until All The Ghosts Are Gone is the long awaited album from Anekdoten, a wait of eight years since the  excellent A Time Of Day. Fortunately it's been worth the wait as it's as good as and sometimes better than most of their back catalogue. Some achievement when you consider the illustrious company it keeps…The haunting and melancholic melodies, the dynamic rhythm section and of course the ever present Mellotron…As a whole Until All The Ghosts Are Gone is a stunning achievement, an album that can sit proudly alongside anything in the bands past.” – Nightfly, Special Collaborator

2.   Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase.

It seems like there isn’t a year where the master himself, Steven Wilson, has a hand in the production of a masterful piece of progressive work. Steven has personally been at the top of our curated list 4 times, and productions that he’s been directly involved in add an additional 2 – it’s clear that Steven knows what he’s doing. Hand. Cannot. Erase. is no different – this exquisite production is a display of Mr. Wilson’s songwriting ability, instrumental ability, and production ability (the album just simply sounds good) and it’s no surprise that it was a hit among our collaborators once again.

             

Steven Wilson takes us back on another journey of his progressive rock adventure, and the expectation were high because of the quality of his music… Sometimes we can feel the light atmosphere with the piano and the flute and at others times, the heavy blast of guitars…the music here has this atmospheric feel, almost cinematic with different moods and sounds, from melancholy, to dreamy and to explosive… This album combined the quality of songwriting and musicianship with refine arrangements. It's got an overall sound that is new and old, melancholic and modern. It's a natural evolution of the man's career that his marked by his originality and creativity.” – rdtprog, Special Collaborator

3.   Jaga Jazzist – Starfire

Our second non-prolific Scandinavian outfit of the list, Jaga Jazzist is perhaps the ultimate prog fusion band. The eight-piece band never fails to provide a unique sound, and the atmosphere produced in their sixth release, Starfire, is no exception. Starfire is dark, moody, and groove-based – they never miss a beat and always keep on time. They flirt with electronics, brass, strings, and more, and it pays off. The album is a slim five tracks, but the 50-minute adventure holds you in the whole time, and it fell into the third spot on our list.

         

What an incredible breath of fresh air! I am so glad to be reminded by an album like this of how much I love upbeat, happy-go-lucky groove tunes like these. From the first notes of the opening song, Starfire, I was gushing with a big grin across my face… The entire album plays out like some incredible soundtrack music… This is an awesome album of great mood pieces--all deserving of film soundtrack contracts… it's just a little at the edge of what I consider progressive rock music--which is really a good thing…  Check out the album! You will LOVE it!” – BrufordFreak, Collaborator

4.   Riverside – Love, Fear, and the Time Machine

Our first metal band on the list, Riverside’s newest offering comes into fourth place this year. Despite the genre placement, however, Riverside has taken much the same route that Opeth took in their past two releases. Like many of the other albums present on this year, Love, Fear, and the Time Machine is a mood-driven album. While there is a heavy riff here and there, Riverside chose to take a step back this time and produce a true work of atmospheric art. The band’s sixth album rests amid a decade-long history of marvelous releases, and it’s very much so home amidst its brothers.

            

LFTM represents Riverside at their most mature, both on a musical and an emotional level… this new album is a purposeful exploration of a warmer, lusher, more hopeful side to the band… Riverside gives us a vision of life with hope, happiness, and purpose at the end…Spacier, lovelier, and happier, "Love, Fear and the Time Machine" laps and flows like the waters at, well, a riverside. Instrumental sections sound organic and naturally flow in and around choruses and verses…. I feel that they have completed their emotional journey, and they've taken me along for the ride.” – Second Life Syndrome, Prog Reviewer

5.   Elephant9 – Silver Mountain

Elephat9, or more accurately, Elephant9 with Reine Fiske, have wowed us before – 2012’s Atlantis was a display of what happens when the avant meets the jazz meets the groove meets the Hammond B12 – and what happened was beautiful. The collaboration returns this year with Silver Mountain, and where Atlantis brought a frantic pace throughout the whole experience, Silver Mountain is a much more deliberate, groovy offering. The screeching Hammonds and Mellotrons are still there, but the album takes much longer to build, and as with many things, with patience, the longer wait pays off, landing Silver Mountain at number 5.

            

I was surprised how different this album is when compared to the previous ones… Just the way they jam and the way the organ often seems to boil under the surface. I kept waiting for them all to break out but it rarely happens here. This is a trippy album that is often subdued and comes across as being improvised jams. The thing is we get four lights out musicians who have done something really special here in my opinion… This is a long one, a double vinyl album clocking in at 76 minutes but much like "Bitches Brew" the time flies by… You can't go wrong with any of the four studio albums this band has released but this one and "Dodovoodoo" are my favourites so far.” – Mellotron Storm, Prog Reviewer

6.   Leprous – The Congregation

Clearly, the Scandinavians, or perhaps specifically, the Norwegians, are doing something right – Leprous, the Norwegian tech prog metal band, have released The Congregation, their fifth effort, to much critical appeal. Leprous is an example of a band with no qualms about what direction their music goes, and it seems that each time they release an album, they explore a new direction or musical opportunity and they never seem to miss.

            

Let it be kept no secret: I firmly believe Leprous are the most evocative band operating within progressive metal today… the new album brings a revitalized emotional immediacy to Leprous' music, and in this respect I am more affected than I have been by an album in many a while… Where some of my favourite progressive albums take a few listens to 'get' them, The Congregationhad me hooked from the first listen… With The Congregation, Leprous have once again proven that my recognition of them once as the most promising band in progressive music has been well-founded. Time and again, they've delivered on that promise, and I cannot wait until their next presumably unfolds in 2017.” – Conor Fynes, Prog Reviewer

7.   Unreal City – Il Paese Del Tramonto

The first appearance of an incredible number of Italian prog bands on this year’s list, Unreal City represent perhaps one of the bets years in Italian prog seen in many years. Il Paese Del Tramonto is everything that one looks for in a well-crafted, evocative Italian prog record – synth driven, dynamic, and endlessly fun to listen to. While the band holds true to the remarkable tradition of 1970s RPI, the band also forges its own path in modern prog, pulling influence from across the prog spectrum. Il Paese Del Tramonto impressed our collaborators so much to place it at seventh on our list.

          

[Unreal City] seem to have incorporated mountains of hours in reliving the RPI greats of the past and simply learned from their glorious history and forged a new form of RPI… Within the confines of one track, there is an abundance of diversity, feeling, mood swings and technical know-how that will make your head shake/quake in disbelief. Not even a bum second on this piece of plastic, just a sheer pleasure ride… The cover art is drop-dead beautiful, the sound ecstatic and musically, a glaring omission of any kind of occasional blandness or prog-by-the-numbers. The end result is possible the finest RPI album in recent and past memory, full of bravado, courage, balls and delight. A classic prog album.” – tszirmay, Special Collaborator

8.   La Fabbrica Dell’assoluto – 1984: L’ultimo Uomo d’Europa

The second Italian band in the top 10, La Fabbrica Dell’assoluto is a new face on the scene, releasing their debut 1984: L’ultimo Uomo d’Europa this year. LFDA (as I’ll refer to them as that’s a bit easier to type out!) plays a much darker and more bombastic style than Unreal City and have a good time doing it. It’s clear even from the beginning that LFDA have a good time playing their fast paced, energetic brand of RPI and parts even seem to be influenced by the raw energy of metal in the early 80s alongside the RPI bands.

           

Every year in every progressive rock-related style, there are those couple of particular titles that stand out and hugely impress right from the very first play, destined to become a truly special work that makes a massive impression, only growing in stature and reputation as rave reviews and good word-of-mouth spreads… For its entire 55 minute length, you'll be hard pressed to find a more thrilling and satisfying modern Italian symphonic work that stands just as strongly as many of the vintage classics so beloved by generations of Italian progressive music fans. This is not merely some fawning imitation, instead La Fabbruca dell'Assoluto indulge in the sounds of their favourite Italian prog heroes and fuse it with youthful energy, confidence and sheer guts, offering an almighty kick up the backside of the RPI style.” – Aussie-Byrd-Brother, Special Collaborator

9.   Ciccada – The Finest of Miracles

Ciccada is a band that is perhaps a bit more surprising than some others – I admit that the first time I had heard them was when I was putting together this list. The Finest of Miracles is this Greek band’s sophomore effort, and even with just one other release under their belt, the band clearly knows how to put together an album. Ciccada is also perhaps our only “traditional” prog album on the list, with the album being very much so in the vein of much of the classic prog we have come to love. This by no means implies the band is ‘by-the-numbers-prog,’ as they have been able to forge their own sound of folk-meets-rock-meets-prog-meets-jazz, and it brought them up to the ninth spot on our list.

        

Diversity is something of a central characteristic to be given Ciccada's second album. The foundation of their style is progressive folk rock, but with details and excursions from jazz, traditional folk music and symphonic progressive rock incorporated into the totality, alongside elements that one might describe as chamber rock to boot. A well made album on all levels, and while not as challenging as it may sound from description, the overall production merits that description due to the sheer diversity of the material. As the band cites bands such as Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant and Gryphon as sources of inspiration, those with an affection for those bands appear to be a likely key audience for this CD.” – Windhawk, Special Collaborator

10.        Guapo – Obscure Knowledge

Guapo is perhaps one of the most well-known bands in the modern avant-garde rock scenes today and has been steadily producing high-quality productions for a number of years. Similar to their last effort, Obscure Knowledge is three lengthy jam-oriented songs full of cranking Rhodes lines, chugging drum lines, and a guitar and bass duo that never seems to relent. Those who enjoy this type of furious jam-oriented avant-prog (I myself am one of them, and I hope you are too) love this stuff, and it’s no wonder that Guapo have once again found themselves a top spot on our list.

              

Once again I'm left spellbound by the sheer power of the music from [Guapo]… Sounds pulsate as the atmosphere becomes uncomfortable then it kicks in hard before 2 minutes followed by the guitar lighting it up… Powerful organ runs as well then the guitar rips it up again… Man this can be so experimental but they give me enough melody to balance it out really well. This is an intriguing album that will appeal to Avant fans especially.” – Mellotron Storm, Prog Reviewer

Thanks Andy Thumbs Up

100% agreed. The Anekdoten album was on top of my list.

These albums were my contribution to the 2015 list. Until All the Ghosts Are Gone, The Time It Takes and La Potestad belong to the finest releases of the 2010s in my humble opinion. Between parentheses are the numbers in which these albums appear on the list:

 1. Anekdoten - Until All the Ghosts Are Gone (1)
 2. Nice Beaver - The Time It Takes (45)
 3. Alejandro Matos - La Potestad (95-98)
 4. Cailyn Lloyd - Voyager (108-115)
 5. District 97 - In Vaults (72)
 6. Battlestations - The Extent of Damage (54-55)
 7. La Coscienza di Zeno - La Notte Anche di Giorno (13-14)
 8. IOEarth - New World (30-31)
 9. Ciccada - The Finest of Miracles (9)
10. Grand Tour - Heavy on the Beach (56-57)
11. Big Big Train - Wassail (58-59)
12. Roz Vitalis - Lavoro d'Amore (54-55)
13. Red Jasper - The Great and Secret Show (254-262)
14. Profusion - Phersu (142-152)
15. The Psychedelic Ensemble - The Sunstone (137-142)
16. Corvus Stone - Corvus Stone Unscrewed (41)
17. Unreal City - Il Paese del Tramonto (7)
18. Advent - Silent Sentinel (103-106)
19. Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine (4)
20. Perhaps - Third (79-82)

Four from this list are in the top 10, #1 and #9 at the same places. There is a cluster of albums from my list in the 50s.

The year 2015 was a year of long awaited albums: Anekdoten (8 years), Nice Beaver (more than 10 years - it took time indeed) and Red Jasper (c. 18 years, I was the only one to add this album).

Looking at the top 10, I see that three of the first six albums come from Norway. Ragnarøck seems to be booming these days. I think I give the new Ulver album a listen this week.

Wow, for the first time since I've been on PA (almost the start of this formula), I've never had so many of my top yearly picks selected and that are well ranked in the compounded PA Top list
 
I've got three of the top fiveStar, another three in the next 15 spots Approveand another 4 in the next 20Hug (so that's 10 in the top 40)...
Added to the fact that I've heard at least 10 more albums (but didn't select them) in that top 40, I think it's been years since I've been as much in phase with PA spiritClap
 
I've thought about 2015 being maybe the best year since the millennium.

Andy thanks for doing this, it's been real fun participating and communicating with everyone about our favourite albums.
It turned out to be a very surprising list, turning the spot light on bands that aren't exactly popular but no doubt about are just as good if not better than the usual suspects.
Thanks again Andy!

P.S - I'd like to mention that Reve General are listed twice here, first at #26 and then at #109 as Rêve Général, I guess that won't change anything but still...

That is a first. I usually have 4 in the top 100. Jaga, elephant9, Guapo and Fabbricca. Would not have guessed that going into this.
Just goes to show how big of a difference there is between the frontpage folks and the collabs...which to me is very exciting. It'd be boring if everyone ate tuna. Some people need their swordfish.

Another thing I'd like to add is that I found it excrusiatingly hard producing this list. Looking down the final result now and I find so many albums I would have liked to include. I count at least 15 that are just as great as 2/3rds of my list.

Hi Karl - good to see you again.
If you're planning on a little jootoobing then check out Finnish band Circle's Pharaoh Overlord;-) Krautrock a la Navajo with basstrombone in copious amounts. Somewhat repetitive yet wonderfully hypnotic. I actually stumbled back n forth between it and Silver Mountain for my AOTY.

I am also happy about Reve General, whose debut is superb. Personally, I would have liked William D. Drake to rank higher (as it did, surprisingly, in the DPRP Collabs list), though I understand it's an album that will not necessarily appeal to everyone.

I have 2 in the top 10 and 4 in the top 20.  Makes me kind of sad that I spent so much time listening to 2015 albums over the last couple of months in order to prepare my list and it had zero impact on the top 10, which would have been the exact same without my list.  Unhappy  Oh well, I guess given that the downside meant that I got to listen to whole lot of great music doesn't make it such a bad thing.  LOL  The only album I haven't heard in the top 10 is the one from Unreal City, which I wasn't able to find streaming on-line.  The other 9 albums are solid releases and although none of them made my personal top 10, no complaints from me.

Thanks for compiling it Andy.  I am curious to see what the list looks like if you only include the collaborators top 10 votes, instead of 20.  I wonder if it makes any difference.

Not a bad list this year. 4 of mine made the cut, which I imagine is the record (or ties the record) (though with the expanded format percentage wise I'm still quite the outlier)

If SW came ahead of Anekdoten this year there would be NO justice in this world.

EDIT:

The biggest surprise IMHO was Jaga Jazzist coming in third. Not the album's bad, but it's very underwhelming, specially considering that it came after two excellent albums: the Zappa-esque One Armed Bandit and the ethereal What We Must. I really hope they don't continue like this in the future.

I think Starfire is every bit as good as the albums leading up to it...maybe with the exception of the live release they cut with the "Britten Symphonia", which imo smokes everything else they've done.
Also, I really dig the way they've incorporated electronics into their sound. Feels fresh and bubbly like sodapop.

I stumbled over Baron's latest 'Torpor' too late in the process to consider it, but it has been a real pleasure diving deeper into it. I've just had my second real spin of it and I am absolutely loving what I'm hearing. 

BTW to those of you who don't know, Baron features Alex Crispin (vocals, guitars, keys) and Luke Foster (drums) off of Diagonal.

A great big thank you goes to our local psychedelic warlord Uwe for reminding me of these guysClap

Sorry, maybe my reference to the other album's styles may have given you the impression I didn't liked the style, which isn't the case: innovation and reinvention is something I very much look forward to in a prog band. I didn't like the compositions. Same thing with Riverside's newest: they are one of my all-time favourite bands (I've been following them since the debut), but Love is their absolute worst release, tied in the bottom with the EPs Memories in My head and Voices in My Head.

I just didn't point out Riverside because it's basically prog's equivalent to FM radio: easy listening, 0 risks and it marked all the checkboxes regarding "do this in order to sound prog".

Of the ones voted in the top ten that I haven't heard I'm going to pickup Jaga Jazzist and Unreal City. I wasn't going to check out Jaga Jazzist only because I wasn't much into the one("What We Must") I do have but seeing CCVP's dislike of "Starfire" probably means I'll like it. We have the opposite tastes it seems which is cool. For example my two fav Riverside albums are Love, Fear And The Time Machine and Memories In My Head LOL

The Schnellertollermeier album is really getting to me....in a good way. Funny how many great albums seem to reveal themselves slooowly. I love how they make the strings sound like a knife edge being plucked in these spiralling sequences.

I only submitted a list of ten this year. I wasn't impressed, really, with the selection of releases in 2015, but I tried to pick the albums I thought I might still listen to going forward in 2016.
 
(1) Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress
(2) Steven Wilson - Hand. Cannot. Erase.
(3) Jaga Jazzist - Starfire
(4) The Decemberists  - What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful Word
(5) Riverside - Love, Fear and the Time Machine
(6) David Gilmour - Rattle that Lock
(7) Circle - Pharaoh Overlord
(8) Iamthemorning - From the House of Arts 
(9) Caligula's Horse - Bloom 
(10) Tim Bowness - Stupid Things That Mean the World




Did you by any chance check out Agusa's second album Två?

I really enjoyed their Högtid album (in fact, I voted for it in 2014). Really loved the Procol Harum cover sequence during "Uti Var Hage". To be honest, I wasn't that moved by the new album's two songs. Good in parts (like the hippie lead on Gånglåt från Vintergatan ), but overall...meh.

I just spun this on Youtube the other day, Dave, and I plan on buying the vinyl, it sounds really great! A very folky kind of symphonic prog with a welcome hint of darkness.

The biggest surprise IMHO was Jaga Jazzist coming in third. Not the album's bad, but it's very underwhelming, specially considering that it came after two excellent albums: the Zappa-esque One Armed Bandit and the ethereal What We Must. I really hope they don't continue like this in the future.

I think Starfire is every bit as good as the albums leading up to it...maybe with the exception of the live release they cut with the "Britten Symphonia", which imo smokes everything else they've done.
Also, I really dig the way they've incorporated electronics into their sound. Feels fresh and bubbly like sodapop.



Sorry, maybe my reference to the other album's styles may have given you the impression I didn't liked the style, which isn't the case: innovation and reinvention is something I very much look forward to in a prog band. I didn't like the compositions. Same thing with Riverside's newest: they are one of my all-time favourite bands (I've been following them since the debut), but Love is their absolute worst release, tied in the bottom with the EPs Memories in My head and Voices in My Head.

I just didn't point out Riverside because it's basically prog's equivalent to FM radio: easy listening, 0 risks and it marked all the checkboxes regarding "do this in order to sound prog".

Sorry Caio - I kinda forgot about this thread, but suffice to say that I understand where you're coming from. I haven't listened to the newest Riverside more than twice, but nothing on it stuck with me. Then again, I think I'm somewhat allergic to Dudazs' vocals, so that may have something to do with my distaste for the albumTongue

Ahh Michael you're in for a real treat albeit you'd improve the whole experience by snatching up the debutWink 
My first impressions of Två was that it was a big step down from Högtid... I still feel that in some ways, but it has won me over through numerous spins. I think the change in sound has to do with the inclusion of Jenny Puertas on flute. While this has made the band's connection to the past all the more evident - sounding particularly close to Kebnekaise and Fläsket Brinner - it still feels a little too docile and rural compared to that fiery first album. Still very good imo.

"Två" was a major step up from "Högtid", I thought. I'd sort of written them off after their debut, which I found a bit underwhelming, but after hearing one of the two tracks from "Två" (thanks to one of your polls, David) I knew it was something different and more to my taste, and I'm glad I gave them another chance.

Excellent work as always, Andy. Thumbs Up A bit disappointed with the top 2, which neither did much for me, but I got three of my 20 in the top 10 (and Jaga and E9 in very deserved positions, I might add), with a total of four in the top 20, and 15 in the top 100, which is basically what I expected, so I'm fairly pleased. Smile

My top 20 list:

1. Møster! - When You Cut Into the Present (47)
2. Agusa - Två (89)
3. Zs - Xe (63)
4. Jaga Jazzist - Starfire (3)
5. Elephant9 with Reine Fiske - Silver Mountain (5)
6. Magma - Slaǧ Tanƶ (24)
7. Lindsay Cooper / Fred Frith / Gianni Gebbia / Lars Hollmer - Angels on the Edge of Time (196)
8. Dungen - Allas sak (30)
9. Battles - La Di Da Di (21)
10. William D. Drake - Revere Reach (67)
11. Krokofant - Krokofant II (166)
12. Simon Steensland - A Farewell to Brains (49)
13. Sannhet - Revisionist (89)
14. Rêve Général ‎- Howl (19)
15. Toe. - Hear You (89)
16. Jono El Grande - Melody of a Muddled Mason (273)

Last year was such a great year for music - so much so that I thought 2016 only really had one destiny...which was to disappoint big time - sorta like pooping out a pebble after a colossal astrofart.
I stand corrected though. Ever since Bowie's gutwrenchingly beautiful swansong 2016 only seems to have grown wider and more interesting musically. I most definitely have a difficult time deciding on what to put in my AOTY list. It literally makes my head spin just thinking about it
Before we reach that stage though I thought it would be interesting to hear people's thoughts on yesteryear's finest output. Are there any changes or late newcomers - things that later clicked with you or indeed stopped making sense? If so please share your thoughts.

Personally I feel a little bad looking at Pond adorning the 13th spot. Listened to it last night and absolutely loved it. Right there and then it felt like the best thing that came out last year. I couldn't believe my own list now but then remembered something about grading it down on account of it not really being a "prog album". Hell I still don't think it's a prog album! But a very fine contemporary psych rock album with colourful synths attached to it. It is also an album you can dance to!?!!!?? Yes! Crazy right? -and not in an LSD-type-snaky-Woodstock-aspiration kind of dance but more like funky Bob's your uncle kind of thang.
Anyway when I take a look at what is listed above 'Man It Feels Like Space Again' (and below for that matter! Schnellertollermeier for instance should be MUCH higher!!! But I bought it late in the year...) I realise that the "competition" just happened to be insanely good.

I'd probably put Hooffoot a few places higher. I only got the LP this year and it really grew on me since then Approve
About Pond's latest, I have it on CD and heard quite a few times but it never clicked for me. Still more interesting than anything I heard from Tame Impala though.
I also discovered this year Maserati's "Rehumanizer" and I'm sure it would be on my top 20 now.

I haven't followed them since their 2010 album Pyramid Of The Sun, which is sorta strange seeing as I really dig it. May just have been the inclusion of Steve Moore from Zombi on electronics that pulled me in...and when he then went away on the subsequent album I too went away. Wasn't entirely done on purpose though...but I guess the mind works on autopilot most of our lives.
Haven't spun Hooffoot in a while - definitely making up for that today! 
A latecomer that certainly should've been on last year's list is the Finnish band K-X-P and their lll album:

I'll have to check out their previous albums. When I saw this cover I couldn't ignore it, that's how I found it LOL

I'm listening to that K-X-P album, really cool stuff Cool I didn't know Sonar either, I'll have to listen to the album that track is great Thumbs Up

Yup Darryl it is basically a bogus Krautrock album from last year claiming to be an old forgotten gem. It is however very well done and while I don't run to it as I hate all forms of running - I do use it as a soundtrack for cycling and it works.

I know the feeling Samuel - that is buying an album based solely on the cover art;) Found quite a few humdingers that way.

Looked them up on PA and it turns out I ha e exactly squat of their output. Also looked up Buldozer to see where my mind had fumbled. Turns out the Yugoslavian titles of their albums may have lead me astray...

For people in Europe, this is a good place to get their albums:

I didn't get that one yet, but I think it is a kind of "best of, re-arranged and re-recorded".  Per Google translate from the indies.eu site:

Group UJD had set for its thirtieth anniversary for their fans, several large events. Three crosses the new album, which contains a selection of the best songs of the band's thirty year existence. Bangers chosen partly themselves fans, but who will also see new, very radical arrangements. When the band exists for 30 years, this is cause for celebration. In addition, when these 30 years filled with thousands of successful concerts, touring dozens of countries and highly appreciated line of albums, it's a reason to celebrate even more. But because the band already have at home is not only a survivor myself, but a living, active, energetic and inspiring body, this celebration just sort of a nice point in its unremitting history. Prior to 15 years ago, we already went home CD 15 drops of water, a kind of Best of the period. It is a compilation of existing recordings. Now, to its 30 years, is in place next compilation. But this time the band decided to record their songs again and in a completely or partially new coats. Jassica exchanged the piano for guitar, Hollywood has become a bit of Latin, in a Corrosion occurs Wallachian Notecka and waltz to 4 times the Mariana Islands for a moment becomes a song to a campfire, and so it is song after song, sometimes more, sometimes less. The songs on this album were half-selected fans themselves and their new names are also small test for the audience, whether they assign names of the original ... The compilation is called Three crosses and Martin Velíšek again did not disappoint. On the packaging appears hill with three crosses, essential playhouse, boom and deer (time rather reindeer), and because it is a hill can not be missing skiers. Křížcích hangs on three characters - a writer, musician and painter, word, music and pictures. At the intersection of these three categories all what I have at home in 30 years did originated and can be expected in the future will emerge.

So probably a good point of entry.  Think I need to place an order before too long.

I guess you're likely to get more of a coherent 'real album' feel when the current lineup plays all the pieces and changes things up to make them their own.  A great idea I reckon, more bands should think like this - and give people who already have all the original tracks a much better incentive to get it.

Thanks man - feels a whole lot lighter. Now I just need the pinched nerve running down my leg to come back to life (now on it's 8 month wuhuu!!!), so I can finally get my mojo back and start walking normally, then life will be good.
You've got a point about the culture thing. You can drive your bike to just about anywhere in Denmark...in the designated bike lane.
