Esquire, if they are known at all, are mostly known as a minor Yes off-shoot fronted by Chris Squire's ex-wife.  But I beg to differ. 

Their 2 albums to date showcase a great and criminally underused vocal talent in Nikki Squire, while the latter album 'Coming Home', free from the commercial considerations presumably imposed on the radio-friendly debut set, is a movingly personal and exemplary collection of bona fide progressive rock songs. 

In particular, the title track and especially the sweeping 'Tron Thomi' - which may be familiar to Yes fans from various compilation CDs - reflect a purpose from singer/songwriters Nikki Squire and Nigel MacLaren to maintain a tradition of space/art/symphonic rock utterly lacking from most so-called 'neo-prog' bands.

Of course, I respect the views of anyone who greets the above text with a shrug of the shoulders or outright animosity - apart from the bit about Nikki Squire's voice.  She REALLY DOES have an amazing voice; in a different life she should be up there with La Bush and other unique artists.  In my world she does.  It's a nice world.
