3 stars UK outfit ARK was formed in the mid 80's, and established themselves as a second tier Neo-Prog band in the decade or so they were active. Constantly changing line-ups was at least partially responsible for the band never managing to really get going though, and in 1995 the last incarnation of arK called it a day. Come 2009 and former member John Jowitt, now a household name in the Neo-Progressive scene, decided to revive his old band after being in contact with guitarist Steve Harris. They were promptly signed to US label Progrock Records, who issued their new album "Wild Untamed Imaginings" in the fall of 2010.

"Wild Untamed Imaginings" might not contain too many compositions adhering to standard progressive rock formulas, but the blend of hard rock, stadium rock and art rock should most likely go down well with quite a few fans of all these genres, with fans of artists like Magnum and Uriah Heep among the ones I'd imagine would enjoy this material. Dedicated neo progressive fans might want to approach this one with a bit of caution though, especially those amongst them that doesn't care too much about harder edged material.
