CROSSOVER PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Crossover Prog definition

Crossover Prog contains progressive rock music that, though 100% progressive, may have a musical connection to popular music-- whether it be the lack of emphasis on extended compositions, or an influence from mainstream music in addition to classical, jazz and folk. Compositions, however, still exhibit a high degree of sophistication, sometimes outright complexity, and the musicianship and virtuosity is often on a par with established Prog acts. Much like their kin in the established prog sub-genres, these groups will incorporate many major parts of what defines prog rock: the fusing of rock with the structures and discipline of more traditional musics, the use of syntheisizers and new technologies, intelligent thematics, and the expansion of the form.

The defining characteristics of Crossover Prog are a pop music influence that is largely vacant in typical prog rock. Songs tend toward shorter, more concise presentations though still reach beyond the typical verse, bridge, chorus pattern. The harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic structures may be more easily digested in Crossover while not losing the musical integrity that a prog listener expects. Whereas Prog Related bands are generally commercial groups with certain prog elements or players that were involved in prog acts, Crossover Prog artists are predominantly progressive with elements of popular music.

The most representative examples for this genre include The MOODY BLUES, SUPERTRAMP, DREDG, CINEMA SHOW, RADIOHEAD.

We Are in the Time of Evil Clocks
The Rebel Wheel Crossover Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy

4 stars My first experience with the Canadian band THE REBEL WHEEL is their 3rd album WE ARE IN THE TIME OF EVIL CLOCKS. This is a truly eclectic progressive rock band with a whole host of influences ranging from the eclectic prog champions King Crimson to the spaciness of Pink Floyd and the wild time signatures of classic Yes. There is metal guitar, funky fuzzed out beefy bass lines and jazz-fusion saxophone and keyboard riffs. There are folk passages between highly energetic and heavy ones. There are both male and female vocals trading off when the mood of the piece demands it. In short this is one mighty beast of an album that tackles the ever so occult themes such as clocks turning to the dark side and even worse, witchcraft.

The majority of the album is filled by nice tastily composed instrumental jam sessions with vocal segments punctuating the often time consuming musical workouts. All is timed fairly well to keep your interest and the variety between the songs is surprisingly diverse. The first five tracks are very well constructed displaying their eclectic nature with gusto with titles like "Scales Of The Ebony Fish" and "Settling Of Bones." All tracks are melodic and have well thought-out developments and progressions. The highlight of this album though is by far the 5-star masterpiece of the album, the 30 minute plus 7-part epic "The Discovery Of Witchcraft." This track truly satisfies the progressive itch like few others do. It has heavy dramatic parts followed by folky atmospheric ones followed by incredible progressive workouts only to come back to a more subtly quiet passage. It cleverly ratchets up the energy and mood building crescendos until a satisfying climax is achieved. It is then ushered out with the ambient finale "Evil Clocks" which adds a terrifying layer of weirdness that makes you wonder how evil the clocks really are and if they are really as sinister and nefarious as THE REBEL WHEEL implies.

An Ocean Held Me
Mice On Stilts Crossover Prog

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

5 stars Mice on Stilts passed through my radar undetected, perhaps due to the fact that their name somehow did not inspire me = I had pet mice when growing up but moved on and was never very impressed with stilts. Poor attempt at humor, I guess but let's face it New Zealand is not exactly a prog hotbed but this only goes to prove that prog globalization is becoming a reality. A full blown world-wide community. My previous unrequited love for the ultra-quirky Split Enz has definitely added to my evaluation. And why, not, as the instrumentation here is just as uniquely original and both sublime vocals /instrumentation.

So guitarist Ben Morley sent me their EP, something I also am generally averse to, being a stickler for full ALBUMS as opposed to songs (MP3s I am really not a fan of). And frankly, once again, I am proven to be a moronic dingbat. Hey, humility only makes you stronger! Truth is that Mice on Stilts offers masterful progressive rock music, definitely original in terms of instrumentation, though there is a flowing Floydian mood that is palpable. With a track entitled "Syd's Socks", what do you expect? But all the focus should be on the lead, harmony, backing and special effect vocals that are exemplary. Honking organ, windswept saxophone and that clanging guitar all combine to shape this brooding opening song. The unshaven voice is tired, frazzled and disconsolate.

A lamenting viola (Sam Hennessy) introduces a piano that expresses the deepest sorrow, the slowly evolving "Binocular Bath" (now that is what I call a prog title!). It's also a fabulous song, a conspicuous dirge of profoundly felt melancholia, swooning vocals, prominent Sam Nash bass, and pulsating 'drumster-isms'. The electric guitar is stormy and aggressive when needed, the melody overpoweringly effective. The lead vocalist (Ben, Is that you?) sounds eerily similar to Airbag's singer Asle Torstrup, who owns a Dave Gilmour slash Robert Smith wail.

The Nick Wright piano introduction to "A Moss Ocean" is so crushingly beautiful, I had a hard time believing my ears! The voice is breathlessly passionate, the classical-tinged orchestrations are very close to Penguin Café Orchestra's Simon Jeffes (a sadly unknown genius), with dense use of viola, saxophone and trumpet to highlight the pain. The overall mood is one of anguished reflection, a style I particularly love as it permeates deep into the soul and takes you somewhere you know well but have never been. This one really kicked me in the pants, I was one step away from crying. The final lyric "She left in a Russian car" only adds to the mystery. Love this stuff!

The loping cinematography of "Vulnerable Vader" is perhaps a tad more straightforward with winks at Radiohead as it veers into slight dissonance, the circumspect saxophone (Aaron Longville) blowing through the blustery clouds (OMG, what a sublime instrument that is, eh?). Tolling guitar chimes, piano rivulets, brooding bass and hefty drum support are all impeccable but it's that damned viola creeping forth that really nails you to the cross. The vocal effects are also exemplary giving backbone to the gritty wail of the deranged sax and the dirty guitar. This quickly veers into Mel Collins meets Bob Fripp delirium as found on "Sailor's Tale"! Tortuous, deranged and damned angry, the gruesome oil of rage is expertly expressed.

Then finish off with the larger-than-life "Tuatara Lawn", an astonishing composition spanning a dozen minutes that expertly encompasses the values of the Mice on Stilts sound, inflicting Dead Can Dance pain, releasing Anathema-like sunny angst and having it then marinate in Pink Floydian symphonics, with the added viola/sax in unison with the delicate piano. The upward vortex of specially effected voice sounds, courtesy of Joseph Jujnovich give the whole that wailing operatic flavor that hits you hard in the gut. Powerful and majestic, densely atmospheric and utterly gorgeous. Morley gives his resonating, echo- laden axe a long, simple and lovely workout, oozing emotion with a profound sentimentality. Music of this caliber should appeal to a wide swath of progressive fans and maybe even be inclined to give some outsiders a further understanding of how meaningful talents create masterful music in relative silence.

Colossal and timeless surprise, I bow in subjugated appreciation. Wow!

Björk Crossover Prog

Review by Chicapah
Prog Reviewer

4 stars I started checking out Bjork earlier this year and have been somewhat surprised to find how interesting her music is. I've always liked the female voice whether it was Barbara Streisand's, Linda Ronstadt's or Billie Holiday's but didn't encounter it to any extent in the progressive realm's heydays of the 60s and 70s so when courageous ladies like Bjork and Tori Amos appeared on the scene in the 90s I paid them little attention. But prog rock paints on a much wider canvas these days and it took me a while to accept that all progressive music isn't necessarily going to sound like Yes or Genesis or ELP. Once my horizons were broadened (thanks in no small part to this template-expanding website's existence) I realized that I'd only been limiting myself by not giving the younger proggers a fair listen. Bjork is one of them and she is cool in every sense of the word. Her first official solo record, "Debut," was impressive and made me want to investigate her aural art further so "Post" was the logical next step in my education.

As she did with "Debut" she opens her sophomore CD bravely with something challenging. This time it's "Army of Me." A strong drum beat and a NIN-styled synth bass line precede the emergence of a strange, wandering vocal melody that doesn't seem to be grounded in any kind of established chord progression. In other words, if you come here looking for something akin to Aretha Franklin you'll quickly realize that this ain't exactly the queen of soul. The excellent "Hyperballad" is next and it's a song that possesses a little more structure that makes it much more comprehensible. The tune's jazzy electric piano as it wafts over a light techno rhythmic scheme is intriguing and Bjork's singing motif sticks out as being wholly unlike any other on earth. "The Modern Things" follows. Its underlying track develops in a way that's reminiscent of Peter Gabriel's early solo work and the jazz influence detected in her songwriting is undeniable. Yet Bjork is remarkably unorthodox on all counts so you never know what to expect. "It's Oh So Quiet" is a case in point. As she did on the previous disc, she slips into nostalgia mode skillfully and without apology, this time as she brazenly fronts a big band. What's great about this cut is how she manipulates the contrasting dynamics and her clever humor so brilliantly. It's highly entertaining stuff. On "Enjoy" she jumps back into an industrial groove that Trent Reznor would approve of and once again sings in a key that only she can hear. The number creates a bizarre, unnerving aura that is somehow magnetic. "You've Been Flirting Again" is a short vocal-with-string- section piece that provides the album with a classy change of pace moment right in the middle.

"Isobel" is another standout song. It sports a full orchestral opening and then morphs into a number containing a pulsating rhythm that exudes a slight South American vibe but the tune avoids becoming your average girl-singer fare because Bjork takes the score wherever she wants to regardless of conventional wisdom. I like that she so openly flaunts her freedom. "Possibly Maybe" is next and it begins with an electronically-generated loop of sampled sound before evolving into a slow-paced number wherein her emotionally-charged voice dominates, establishing a dichotomy between the serene and the passionate. "I Miss You" is another highlight. Its subtle dance beat is augmented by both artificial and authentic percussion instruments as the track strides beneath her aggressive vocal. She wisely lets the intoxicating momentum carry the song on its shoulders without hindrance and the brassy horns are an exciting addition. "Cover Me" is a brief arrhythmic, experimental composition that displays her fearless nature flawlessly. She closes with "Headphones." After an extremely subdued start she introduces muted synthesized toms that instigate a beat pattern to guide you through an array of inventive vocal snippets and manifestations of her free form poetry and utterances that tastefully manage to skirt around the potholes of becoming irritating or insincere.

Released in the summer of 1995, "Post" reached #32 in the USA but streaked up to #2 in the UK. The singles that the CD spawned also did much better in Britain than here in the states and that further confirms to me that the English continue to be much more prog-minded and flexible in their musical tastes than their Yankee counterparts. The effects of the MTV virus still linger, evidently. Bjork's music also suggests that the final decade of the second millennium was a lot more progressive than I realized and that may be due to the fact that her eclecticism kept her off of US radio stations that were too timid and conservative to give her songs a decent chance to flourish. Over here she was more likely to gain exposure from her wild costumes and exotic looks than from her adventurous music and that's a shame. Hopefully a lot more American proggers will discover her charms in time. Give her a spin. 3.5 stars.

Meseglise Crossover Prog

Review by Todd
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano!

— First review of this album —
4 stars A pleasant side road

Sithonia has been around the RPI scene for about 25 years, releasing over that period five studio albums and a live album, all fairly solid entries into the second wave of RPI canon. Over the last 14 years, members of the band wrote and recorded several songs in a slightly different style, more in a singer-songwriter vein than Sithonia, with progressive and Mediterranean shadings. Sithonia keyboardist Paolo Nannetti and guitarist Marco Giovannini decided to take these songs and create a side project. They added three members (Maurizio Lettera on drums, Maya Seagull on bass, and Maria Robaey on violin) and enlisted other Sithonia personnel to assist on the final recordings. The result is the debut album by the band Méséglise, entitled "L'assenza."

The music of Méséglise on this debut album is highly melodic art rock, mainly laid back with a distinct Mediterranean sound, including much piano and frequent accordion. There are many keyboard flourishes that make prog fans feel right at home (including a fair bit of mellotron), and the ambience created is a comfortable, nostalgic one. The songs are always well written if not complex, sometimes brooding, other times content, often wistful. But the music is always welcome, never tiresome, and the experience is overall a very enjoyable one. Samples are readily available on the web, and the album is widely distributed by Lizard. 4- stars (Gnosis 11/15)

The Light Beyond The Shades
Spleen Arcana Crossover Prog

Review by ProgShine
Collaborator Errors & Omissions and Crossover Team

5 stars Spleen Arcana is a one-man French band in which Julien Gaullier is responsible for all of the instruments, compositions, vocals and technical details, the only exception is the drums recorded by David Perron. The Light Beyond The Shades (2014) is an album that took around four years to be completed for Julien recorded everything on his own calmly at his home studio in Paris.

I got to know the band back in 2009 when Julien himself got in touch with me asking if I would like to review his first album, The Field Where She Died (2008). At that time despite seeing that the project had quality I thought that something was missing in Julien's music, perhaps a greater identity to it. Well, in The Light Beyond The Shades (2014) he got that!

For fans that follow Spleen Arcana two of the three tracks on the new album are not that new, despite the fact that they have new outfits in the new album they were available before through the band's Bandcamp page as singles around 2 years ago. But, as I mentioned, for the new album they were re-worked and can be considered new. The tracks are 'Erin Shores' and 'Fading Away'.

The opening track, 'Erin Shores' starts where the last track of The Field Where She Died (2008) ? 'A Kind Of Heaven' ? ends and shows Julien's passion for Scottish folkloric music. Julien's vocals are calm, serene and gentle, however his music not always follows this path, especially in the instrumental moments. Listening to this opening track is quite obvious that Julien is a big fan of the classical period of Prog, the 70's, however Spleen Arcana's music sounds fresh and new. This fact is even more noticeable in the second track 'Fading Away' where his wife Marie Guillaumet helps him with backing vocals (like on his first album). Julien is a great instrumentalist now, and one can see his growth from his first album, he does well both in the bass and in the electric and acoustic guitars. Keyboards are also present, but in a discrete way most of the time. The instrumental section on this second track is simply superb, at the same time Julien was able to write something that is worthy of the great 70's Prog bands but with a freshness rarely present in the new bands. I must also say that David Perron's works in the drums are great on this track.

But to be honest, the surprise of The Light Beyond The Shades (2014) is the third and final track 'Memento Mori', an epic of 24 minutes. 'Memento Mori' is a perfect example of the classic Prog Rock format in the 70's and the new Prog Rock made in the last ten years or so. Julien shows us that it is possible to mix both and that they match perfectly. Moreover, he shows us that you don't need to be trendy and super hyped to be a good Prog band nowadays. My only complaint is the vocal parts. Though I recognize that Julien improved a lot since his first album in this matter I think that the vocals on his new album are much alike, however I don't think this downgrades his work much, and the sounds you'll find in The Light Beyond The Shadows (2014) are so rich that honestly you'll find a great number of details for you to hook on.

Plenty of times when I start to write a review I ask myself if there's a way of sounding like the Classic Prog that we love but at the same time bring something new to the table. Most of the time I disappoint myself with new bands because of that. I believe that Spleen Arcana is my answer to that question! The album shows Julien with loads of Classic bands influence such as Mike Oldfield, Pink Floyd and King Crimson but at the same time he's listening to the new bands like Porcupine Tree as well. You can be sure that this five years waiting was worth it.

If you're one of those listeners that love the 70's and grew up listening to those but also like to know what's going on right now The Light Beyond The Shades (2014) is your album, you can buy it with no fear. On top of that I think this is a great format for an album: 3 tracks in 46 minutes.

I just hope that Julien will not take another five years to release a new album, but if that happens and if he can top The Light Beyond The Shades (2014), I don't mind waiting!

Saga Crossover Prog

Review by 10string

4 stars (I've been a Saga fan since their 2nd LP , I was at their legendary gig in San Juan that appears in the jacket of Worlds Apart- I have the original LPs of their first 6 releases and various CDs, even Network on DVD Surround-GREAT MIX btw)

yes, Saga , reinvented themselves again... Very strong material here and , although , extremely compressed, excellent production. No, you won't find a lot of Saga's "trademark" gtr/synths 32 note harmonies here, but the lyrics are very strong (funny, cynical...) Lyrically they have left heir "storytelling" phase quite a while ago and now they are just "normal" lyrics.

Mind you, I have the LP version, 2 LP's at 45 RPM, which give it an incredible sound! This is the FIRST NEW Saga LP I bought since..."In transit"..CDs are something else... The first time I actually can HEAR the BASS clearly on a Saga LP. Ian is VERY present on this mix and Jim is a great counterpoint, maybe on a not too distant 2nd place.

The LP is VERY nice, great photos, with lyrics on the jackets (except that they screwed up the illustration on the 2nd Lp's jacket , it's upside down)-not a very CLEAN pressing but definitely worth it...

I was also surprised that 20/20 got such a bad rep being another strong contender, but that's another story.

Men Singing
Henry Fool Crossover Prog

Review by admireArt

4 stars Far less modest than the previous 12 years ago, first release!

This album "Men Singing" by HENRY FOOL, their second release, has all kind of ratings, with their respective reviews, bashing it or loving it. So, it all comes down to what kind of MUSIC you like in this Prog universe.

To measure it up to expectations, is kind of selling it unwisely. Therefore just to point out where this big "All Star Band" (with guest stars included!) heads on music wise, I will point out some referentials.

For starters no vocalist! (no Tim Bowness' singing, he just plays guitar). The sound flows between Post/Math Rock and (Post?) Space/Psychedelia. It is tainted all the way with very colorful electronics. The structures (songs) are creative and dynamic. The added touches of a Mel Collins (no, he is not on this one!) kind of like wind player, sets it sometimes close to modern Prog/Jazz/Rock moments, therefore also near the King's territories. But the effectiveness of the song writing never stays too much in one single place or style, thereby it is no big deal!

The electric guitar is also the great thrill on this album, it is the setting tone to the four songs. It ranges from wild fuzz distortion to creative and "sparkling" electric arpeggios! The synths cover the whole environments with I repeat, highly ctreative electronics and symphonic strings (simmultaneously sometimes), therefore it is also matches with the Symphonic prog tagging.

Its highlights have to do more with music composition, than with "arena" band strategies of grandeure, although it does not lack that kind of intensity ("My Favourite Zombie Dream", track 3, is a good example of this).

It all comes to what kind of Prog music you like!

I myself, having no complaints (besides the Mel Collins sound alike), have had a really delightful time listening to it. It is so well written and diverse, that it never stops showing some new colors in each playing! And I will surely repeat the experience again. In addition it is completely "instrumental" which always adds up points in my account!

****4 "creative, colorful, hypnotic, unpretentious" PA stars.

Review by demolition man

5 stars An absolute gem of an album; probably my favourite of all the catalogue. Yes, the early albums are stunning, very different and timeless, but for me this is the album that I have consistently played over the last 39 years.

Without a weak track the whole album has a mixture of prog and some unique pop. What was to come next through the 70s was also very good (even Out of The Blue; mostly pop) but this for me was the greatest. Very surprising that none of this great band's album could muster even a 4 star here. Some band's albums transcended sound and some will forever remain in the favourites list; this album achieves both for me.

A special mention to the album opener; the haunting Fire on High which explodes into life......the band have really excelled themselves. Interesting enough the remastered CD comes with a very much different version. ELO have done a great job with all their re-masters and this track alone was well worth the purchase price. Even Evil Woman bonus comes with some fantastic piano work.

5 stars for my favourite ELO album.

An Ocean Held Me
Mice On Stilts Crossover Prog

Review by lucas
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Hailing from New-Zealand, Mice on Stilts play a music covered in melancholy, where the complex alternative country of 16 Horsepower meets comfortably the space rock of Pink Floyd and the dark atmosphere of King Crimson. The instrumentation is rich, as, besides the usual bass/drums/guitar trio, other instruments abound, like piano, saxophone, viola and to a lesser extent accordion, mouth-organ, trumpet, Rhodes and organ. All these instruments are played slowly, thus being each a brick of of the wall of sadness. A few more luminous moments intersperse the prevailing desolation, such as the enchanting guitar backed by the jolly drums in "Syds Socks", some upbeat piano notes as well as the optimism that soars from Nick Wright's mouth in "Tuatara Lawn", and last but not least the lovely female choirs in "Binocular bath". In line with the lyrics of the closing track ("we are endlessly in torment") and the imploring cry of "Binocular Bath", the music is in the end tormented yet delivered in delicate ambiances, where instruments, staying in harmony despite their abundance, are accompanied by a beautiful pleading voice.

Live From Manticore Hall (Emerson & Lake)
Keith Emerson Crossover Prog

Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
Special Collaborator Symphonic Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars "Live from Manticore Hall" is a live 2010 show featuring legendary Prog specialists Emerson Lake & Palmer members without the Palmer. No brilliant drums basically but this is awesome stuff and I wish I could have seen the show. Lake spells it out to the captivated audience in the intro that this is going to be a concert where they invite the crowd into their studio where they experiment and create things, looking back to the halcyon days of King Crimson and The Nice and of course ELP. The band explain many things as they explore their past glories and it is a wonderful journey they take us on.

For the first time since 1969 they perform I Talk to the Wind that appeared on that little known album "In the Court of the Crimson King". Say no more. From the Beginning is the opener and no one can complain as its one of the greatest of the many Lake ballads that surfaced over the years.

Bitches Crystal is given a classical piano treatment and it's very cool, Emerson being a master of the ivories bar none. He slams those keys with staccato glee and it jumps along with familiar melody and extended piano concerto vibes. It is sans bass and drums but still works as a compelling piece.

The Barbarian from the first ELP is a great choice, "a catchy and annoying tune, that grows on you" according to Lake. He pulls out the Hammond sound on this one, and there's drums, by some unknown muso. The piano interlude is fabulous too. This is great to hear after all these years; a genuine triumph. "Listen they're whistling it already" says Lake at the end of it.

Take a Pebble is one of my favourites so to hear this revamped version was a joyous experience. Lake's dreamy vocals carry it along beautifully. The piano is welcome and at times this sounds like old school ELP. It's an edited version at 5 minutes 20 but it's still wondrous to hear. It segues immediately into Tarkus.

Tarkus is here. Tarkus! A 17 minute version so there's plenty to indulge in here. This is so beloved you can imagine the crowd adoring this. It is a bit unrecognizable at the start with a lone grand piano instead of the bombastic wall of sound on the original masterpiece. Emerson is just enjoying himself as he strolls through this criminally complex piece of music. Lake comes in as the Mellotron strings enter with Stones of Years. It is refreshing and again it must have been extremely moving and uplifting to be in the audience as this washes over you. Emerson tinkles away with unabashed virtuoso style capturing the greatness of the epic. Lake touches the guitar at times to maintain the off kilter rhythms. The echo on his voice is effective, and overall he is sounding the same as he did all those years ago "The weaver in the web that he made!" It's interesting to hear this version of Manticore too. The track really picks up with The Battlefield, into Aquatarkus with pounding drums and squelchy synths. Emerson pulls out the electronic synth wall for this one and blazes away into full flight like he used to and I wonder if he dragged a synth out stabbed it with a knife here. This captures ELP glory and undeniably is a crowd pleased. I suspect a standing ovation followed. Brilliant to hear Tarkus played with so much dynamic energy and passion!

The melancholy C'est Le Vie is next and brings things down to a calmer level after the previous blitzkrieg. Though not one I like, the song is still sounding similar to the old version with acoustics and relaxing strings for a peaceful atmosphere. An accordion sound comes in too for a Parisian touch. "Merci Beaucoup" indeed Mr Lake.

Pirates is a surprising choice from "Works" and it certainly progs along nicely at 13 and a half minutes. Opening with narrative and ethereal keys it fires up into familiar territory along the allegorical seas of turmoil and adventure. The keys sound similar to the original version, right down to the percussive crashes and flutes. The drums are great here, but who is playing them? The whimsical melodies of sea shanties drift along nicely,

The concert closes with a Moog Solo and then into a glorious rendition of Lucky Man. Lake tells us that Keith "wanted to like it but" it as not initially received well. Is that swirling psychedelic synth solo present at the end? This is the "retro-spective" version and Keith dusts down the old Moog, the same one to produce some mind bending psyched up sounds.

Overall this is a glorious return to the prog brilliance of ELP, with smatterings of The Nice and King Crimson sprinkled over the top. At little more than 78 minutes one has to wonder what the rest of the concert was like and what was omitted on the CD release. Some research reveals that on this tour the omitted songs were Prelude to Hope, Malambo, America and Rondo. A 2 CD release might have been appropriate to include these, especially America and Rondo. This is the setlist they played in 2010 in the USA both at Rams Head On Stage, Annapolis in April, and at The Birchmere, Alexandria in May, respectively. It leaves one slavering for more as the concert cruises by so rapidly. It is a joyous concert, an intimate night out with the prog legends Emerson and Lake.
