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.

Ossicles Crossover Prog

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars The Veland cousins' debut album under the Ossicles name sees them mashing up vintage prog keyboards and compositional approaches with modern electronic wizardry. With influences ranging from jazz-rock to trance, it's a bit of a wild mix, and there's points where it feels a bit like a slightly incoherent demonstration piece, revealing their capability to play well without necessarily hanging together as a cohesive artistic statement. Fun stuff, and impressively executed for a two-man hobbyist band, but whilst they might display it proudly on their mantelpiece, it's not a masterpiece by a long shot. Stream it on bandcamp before spending money, is my advice.

Incantations
Mike Oldfield Crossover Prog

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Structurally speaking, this one is Mike Oldfield's Tales From Topographic Oceans, being as it is a double album of just four side-long pieces. And like Tales From Topographic Oceans, it's a divisive one, with people who had been won over by his single album-length compositions put off just as others embraced it.

To be honest, I think the running time is the major issue here - any album clocking in over 70 minutes is going to find keeping the listener's attention a challenge at times, and the material here is repetitive enough that I don't often find it as rewarding to listen to the whole thing in one sitting compared to Tubular Bells or Ommadawn. However, taken as individual tracks, the various parts of this whole are as good as ever. My advice: take it slowly, chew it over carefully, and give yourself a chance to digest it properly, and you'll get the best out of this one.

Ommadawn
Mike Oldfield Crossover Prog

Review by SteveG

5 stars Listed In PA under "Crossover Prog", Ommadawn, to me, is at the apex of symphonic progressive rock and is without a doubt a must have album of it's, mostly, instrumental subgenre. Multi instrumentalist Oldfield crafts another astonishing album with magnificent variations on themes which now include a heavy nod to Celtic and African influences and fusions.

Where Tubular Bells rang out with orchestral over and undertones, and Hergest Ridge goes for a pastoral ride in the English countryside, Ommadawn encompasses both while bringing celestial embellishments into it's rich sound mix. Starting out with a simple music box like melody played on a harp, it soon devolves into the ominous minor chords of a synthesizer section, supported with choir like vocals from both Oldfield's sister Sally, and the incredible Clodagh Simonds. Its only with 40 years of reflection that Oldfield's patch plug ARP 2600 synthesizer reveals itself as the only instrument to date the album. All other organic instruments such as bouzouki, acoustic guitars, mandolin, grand piano, harp, tympani, recorders, pan flutes, electric guitars, hand drums and tympani sound as fresh as the day that they were committed to tape.

Side one the album, or part one of the CD reissues, features much of the gentle contrasted with the bold such as side one's coda that is the now celebrated, and at the time, remarkable, fusion of syncopated African hand drums contrasted with both acoustic and electric guitar figures, and Simond's faux Celtic language styled chanting before the piece finally dissolves into just the lone hand drums and fades out.

Side two, or part two, revisits one the opening side's earlier themes, but this time in a layered sea of electric guitar arpeggios that's revisited with more of Oldfield's incredible synth notes that seem to want to explode out of the dense sound mix, burst out the speakers and into one's listening space. It's one of the most remarkable pieces on the album followed a short ways by some inventive Uillean pipe playing from none other then an uncredited Paddy Maloney of the Cheftains. After a quiet folky section that features Oldfield's bouzouki and acoustic guitar, Maloney does all in his incomparable power to coax beautifully sweet notes from such a course and strident instrument as the Uillean pipes. It's fascination to me is listening to it's stunning beauty contrasted by the instrument's own throaty droning rasp. For many, this section is either a "love it or hate it" piece, but to me, remarkably, it's both.

After another electric guitar army crescendos it's way into part two's final fade out, the Ommadawn album ends with an anti climax with the trite sing along song "On Horseback", which is terribly overproduced and is the only piece of music on the album to sound like a Phil Spector produced overindulgence, with even a child's choir throw into the mix.

So, Ommadawn does not end on a high note, but I suppose an anti climax is better than no climax at all. 4.5 stars, as Ommadawn is arguably Oldfield's finest work and remains almost timeless. I usually do not go into too much detail on remixed album remasters, but the 2010 CD edition features both the original and remixed albums remastered by Oldfield himself. I prefer the original sound mix as the 2010 remix features more defined bass detail and lower bass extension overall, but as usual with these remixes, it looses some oomph in the top end. However, both versions sound excellent.

Pineapple Thief Crossover Prog

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

5 stars The Pineapple Thief remain dedicated to their way of making music, growing in reputation and fame, though routed firmly in going way beyond just standing still , rehashing a tried and truly glorious career, but instead choose to explain away their lives, their loves , their hopes and all of their dreams. Yes, occasional nightmares and even tragedies. We survive. Somehow. Steve Wilson concentrated on the analysis of apathy, drug addiction, ignorance and of course, inner pain. All very existential. Bruce Soord prefers a more basic suffering in human terms, dealing with tragedy, loss, grief and often, discouragement. Both vistas are surely depressive but also altruistic in its desire to understand and to heal. On this monumental album, the long-awaited masterpiece has arrived, aroused by the cosmic beauty of past works such as the tragic "Little Man", and the correspondingly majestic "What We Have Sown?" . After a couple of more obscure releases, they are back to proggier realms, with insanely stellar poetry that hits hard and straight, in pure agony. The rather toned-down instrumentation is one of the finest examples of 'less is more', certainly in progressive rock terms, as these musicians simply seize the divine mood and bloom accordingly.

The somber "In Exile" is a mood setter par excellence, scouring for skin deep emotions, sensually sung by Bruce, who never sounded more mournful and penetrating. He can now join the top prog elite with the likes of Steve Wilson, Danny Cavanaugh (Anathema), Marco Gluhmann (Sylvan) and old-timers like Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) to challenge and emote on the wildest level. Incredibly infectious and deeply aggrieved, he arms himself with lyrics that tend to focus on human emotions, something we used to call 'feelings' back in the day. "Don't be afraid to miss me, don't be afraid to hate me", gulp. In exile is a sense of solitude, internal penitentiary and pensive bondage. Bruce's high pitched wail is flooded with an intense mellotron squall, ticked by deft percussives, the band barking up the Porcupine Tree.

Poignant, bold and surreal, the score is minimalist with simply dense drum work from master Gavin Harrison, a genial choice to man the rhythmic arsenal, with a spectacular display of basic percussive mastery as projected on "No Man's Land", beyond a gorgeous a song as it aims to become a hymn to the human condition. Soord croons the dejected song with complete assurance and believability, mainly because it's heartfelt as well as the consequences of his personal grief, the nature of which I will not divulge, at this time. If you want to know then research it, I guess. The song's final section is jaw-dropping, oozing atmospherics from every pore, drenched in restrained exaltation. Harrison again shows his mettle, delivering punchy accents and deft propulsion when the after burners kick in and turn this piece into an epic classic.

The volcanic "Tear you Up" is quite the entertaining ride as well, maintaining the vacillating heartache and shoving it a little harder along, articulating "a distant shore", a solitary figure "drifting on the open sea". It gets punchy with a rough guitar rasp that expresses all the agony of loss, a powerful dose of reality. Another persuasive killer track, "That Shore" has a radiating quality of near ambient desolation, a vaporous mist of infectious aromas, captained by a despair-ignited soul singer, and a melody that owes a great deal to Wilson's fabulous ballad "My Ashes", off the "Fear of a Blank Planet" manifesto. Except here, Bruce aims for the loftiest highs, his hushed voice crushingly sorrowful, the instruments at their most basic, enriching pools of pearled emotions that defy categorization. Devastating !

Two tracks destined to live well together as they focus on the follow up twin emotions to shock, known as rage and anger. Jon Sykes shows off his considerable bass guitar skills on the thus punkier "Take Your Shot" , a gallant compulsion to defend the principles behind civilized behavior by fighting back, at least with words and with imperative music. The competing hard and soft voices demonstrate clearly the deep discord and the ripping confusion, a nasty guitar slaying the beast of despondence. "It's time to make your move. Oh Yeah!". Its roommate is the equally blustery "Fend For Yourself", a clear message of survival from above, from the heavens that rule all of our fears. Terrific Harrison shuffle, an effervescent beat to liven up the soporific voice that 'never looks back", a charming clarinet solo from Supertramper John Anthony Helliwell, a kaleidoscope of simple mosaics that firmly anchor the survival mode message.

But what comes next is the true slayer of the beast of indifference, "The Final Thing On My Mind" is a masterpiece of prog, period! Mournfully melancholic, it exudes a universe where pain is transmitted within a vessel of delirious music, superbly crafted and emotionally intense. The lyrics here play a preponderant role, recalling a story of love that turned into pain and into heartbreak, a crushing admonition ultimately, acquiescence and then survival. Ughh! I can relate having my love walk away into silence, a few months ago. Not a good feeling, being so suddenly alone. So when these words hit home, I can smile and pray for salvation. "Every waking dawn it's you I see, coming back to me". Musically, its breathtaking, a very swooning entrance with an almost minimalist arrangement, pushed by the masterful Gavin Harrison's humble and yet relentless pummel. At the four minute mark, it falls into a magnificent atmospheric pool of deep ambiance, crushingly slow "Everything you did is a part of me, ripped apart from me" as mentioned already by my colleague mellotronstorm. I can feel it and I know John can too. We survive, as best we can until a new sun comes into our existence. The most beautiful melody slowly emerges from the mist, delicately caressed by a forlorn piano motif, a gut-wrenching guitar solo trails but somehow this is all very comforting. A witness to agony, we all commiserate.

The dexterously woven "Where we Stood" ends this magnificent opus, not on a positive note but rather a long look back at what once was and not anymore. A memory, a reminder of "such a beautiful feeling", scorched by a stunning but short guitar outburst.

Need to say something about the artwork, part and parcel of that fabulous No-Man album "Wild Opera" that featured vintage 60s 'America is Great' pictures, courtesy of Beech. A family wretchedly waiting for the encounter of the last kind, searching for a missing father, a missing man, lost somewhere on the upper slopes of desolation. "Your Wilderness" is also a crowning achievement for the man who should be hailed as among the very best talented drummers in the world, which is permanently seared into the grooves with stellar stick work that should impress every stripe of music fandom. He makes Bruce Soord's at times demanding music shine. Their finest album ever and maybe a permanent monument to 2016 prog, who knows? Well, not quite true, Donald Trump knows everything! But I digress. Number 1, I say!

Barclay James Harvest Crossover Prog

Review by maryes

4 stars I agree with the Progrewier LOSERBOY when he say in his review #22596 (Posted Wednesday, March 17, 2004) Barclay James Harvest first album is mainly inspired by The Beatles ,The Moody Blues and Procol Harum... . This is easily perceived in all tracks of this first album, as for instance "Taking Some Time On" , "Good Love Child" "The Sun Will Never Shine" ( The Beatles), "Mother Dear" and "The Iron Miaden" ( The Moody Blues ) and "The World Was Woken" and "Dark Now my Sky" (Procol Harum). However their sound are not a "cheap copy" from these above mentioned bands. In fact the album is a very good debut album, and although their music isn't full of virtuosity is a very pleasurable work for the listeners ! My rate is 4 stars !!!

Hair In A G-String (Unfinished But Sweet)
Colin Tench Project Crossover Prog

Review by Kati

5 stars Track Part 4B - Don't miss it! The title of the album is a take of Bach's Air on the G-String. While (Unfinished but sweet) is often described in classic music sheets unfinished suite. This album as a whole, one can't help but think of Alice Cooper's UNFINISHED SWEET musical landscape with explosion of colors taking you to Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory, to James bond sexy spy thriller, from the Beatles fun filled tunes and harmonies, to Nino Rota's latin musical scores, evolving to a dramatic opera with all the trimmings giving you Queen with Vangelis crescendos.

Hair In A G-String opens with Part 1 - The Opening - Stunning, stunning, song! Acoustic guitars, piano, keyboards, electric guitars lead in to "it's time to start the show, sit down, relax,...", Pete's voice sounds unbelievable, like Peter Gabriel with lyrics Bowie could have written. But the best part is yet to come. At 4.33mins Peter Jones saxophone 'OMG', you feel it starting right from your gut, an absolute stunner, reminiscent of Floyd's Dark Of The Moon.

Can't see any other way - Beautiful 70's feel good song, guitars play lead and response to Phil Naro's amazing 4 octave vocal range and harmonies. The bass guitar really shines here and Colin lead guitar at times sounds like a saxophone.

Part 2 - The Hairy Part - A track full of surprises - most endearing classical orchestration beginning, goes into full rock mode, changing to fluttering drumming and deep inhaling guitars, fast and rhythmic clever, 3mins into the track, ... "bang" Santana arrives... in big way... with a fantastic samba explosion.

The Mad Yeti - Romantic Spanish Acoustic song, fast and slow beautiful melodies.

And so today - Homage to Four Beloved Artists we sadly lost last year. Lyrics make special reference although not obvious to Sir George Martin (5th Beatle), Glenn Frey, Lemmy Kilmister and David Bowie... this song hits a nerve, emotionally grabbing, leaving lump in my throat, brings me easily to tears. Besides vocals, Pete plays clarinet with a touch of Genesis and the Waltz whereby the acoustic guitar, piano, violins and bass notes, all complement each other. Colin's small lead-break halfway through adds the right beautiful touch.

Part 3 - I'm Going Down - The first part of this song up to 2.17mins, orchestration, guitars hit every sensitive nerve, one feels, hangs on to every note. Then the song takes a Queen turn, May lead guitars kick in, at 2.38mins Pete vocals come in, soon turns into a darker Queen Opera, and back to melodic full orchestration of flowing fanfare 'fom fom fa fom fom fa' accordion to The Beatles Sergeant Pepper, the last part followed by Pink Floyd The Wall with my favorite ending Colin's guitars playing funky chucking notes like Nile Rodgers to describe it the best I can. N.B.: A secret backwards message at the end.

Lisa Waltzes Back In With No G-String - Gob smacking brilliant Waltz! Maestro Gordo orchestration is huge, Colin's guitars start a lead and response war, the horns, violins, bass and drums all join in to produce a marvelous explosion.

Lisa's Entrance Unplugged - Another big favorite, acoustic guitars, whistles and the flute performed by Ian, telling a Sicilian story with a touch of western, beautiful & touching like Nino Rota's The Godfather.

Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Screwed - Masterpiece - Exciting Instrumental song, great guitar tunes, beautiful lead breaks and magnificent crescendos.

La Palo Desperado - My favorite acoustic track on the album, Spanish Paso Doble and The Tango. Exciting full of flavor and raunchy with slower seductive bits. Olé ! And a slight pink panther tune.

A Beautiful Feeling - Phil Naro vocal harmonies take you back to the classic early 60's Frankie Valli and the 4 seasons, a song to be played anywhere, the soft samba rhythm, slide and lead guitars added by sweet percussion with shakers, easy to dance either alone or with a partner.

Dnieper Summer Day - a quirky fast acoustic guitar track, layers changing and overlapping each others. You cannot possibly sit still to that.

PART4-B - Favorite ending of an album, The Rat Pack Sinatra and Crosby with Zappa joining in. Very clever and funny, Peter Jones and Phil Naro duet with lead and response guitars joined by big band orchestration done just right. I have to highlight the comical middle section with Jay's drums adding to the whole band having fun.

PART4B Redux - This short piece, I envision Monty Python and the Holy Grail start of the movie, but this time they are Minions.

Unbroken Spirit Lives In Us
Loonypark Crossover Prog

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This was the third album from Polish act Loonypark, and in the intervening years there was just the one line-up change with drummer Jakub Grzesło departing prior to their 2011 release, 'Straw Andy', and being replaced by Grzegorz Fieber. In many ways, this is quite a different album to the debut, which perhaps isn't surprising given that there were seven years between the two, as the band were by now confident in what they were doing, and it is this confidence that shines through in everything they touch. It is more symphonic than before, and whereas the power was somewhat restrained in the past, here it is allowed more freedom. Sabina hits the notes she wants to, and maintains them without a quiver, standing proud to the world, showing that she knows she has the voice, and is going to use it.

The delicate guitar lines that were the trademark sound of the debut are still here, but not as frequent as they once were. The band have shifted so that Krzysztof's keyboards are even more important than they were previously: they are much more integral to the overall being that is Loonypark. He isn't afraid to play delicate piano if that is what is needed, or use the sounds of a harpsichord, while Piotr Lipka brings in a fretless bass to give that extra warmth, or they can easily move into all-out bombastic over the top symphonic prog. There is a real sense of space within the music, so that the listener can move between the interweaving strands and concentrate on whatever seems to be the most important. "Treasure" is a real highlight, with so much delicacy at the beginning that it feels as if a gossamer thread is being wove, before being blast away just in time for them to start the process all over again. I became a fan of Loonypark when I first heard their debut all those years ago, but this album is just so much more than I could ever have imagined that they would become. Awesome.

Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Polish band Loonypark was formed in 2007 by Krzysztof Lepiarczyk (keyboards) and Jakub Grzesło (drums). They soon found the right singer in Sabina Godula-Zając (who had previously been in Liquid Shadow with Krzysztof and had sung with Millenium), and Krzysztof then looked to another of his previous bands, Meteopata, for guitarist Piotr Grodecki and bassist Piotr Lipka. For a debut album, this is a polished affair, but given that the guys had all been around the scene for a while that probably isn't too surprising. Unlike Liquid Shadow, here all the vocals are in English, which immediately makes it more accessible for those who don't understand Polish, and the music is also quite different in that here it is far more reflective, and not nearly so in your face.

It contains elements of symphonic prog, mixed with good strong melodies and sensibilities while also using some wonderful Camel or Jadis-style guitar lines. There is a real warmth to the keyboards, and Sabina has beautiful control and timbre that gives the music a depth and quality sadly missing from many bands. It certainly doesn't come across as a debut, there is far more power and passion, but all restrained and dealt with in the right manner. Guitarist Maciek Tomczyk, who later turned up in the Polish avant-garde metal band Luc Occulta, is a guest on this album for some of the songs, and it is hard to imagine that he later became more abrasive as here his guitar sings gently and sweetly, combining with some wonderfully dated keyboard sounds to create something quite special. Poland has long been a haven for some amazing progressive bands, and Loonypark are yet another strong act.

Hair In A G-String (Unfinished But Sweet)
Colin Tench Project Crossover Prog

Review by chiang

1 stars Listening to this album has been one of my very disappointing musical experiences of the year. There are many good reviews about it!! So I was expecting for something really great. I prepared myself for an hour of great sound, big arrangements and all I know is a big prog album. And then it came "Hair in a G string" and I knew why the complete name has the "(Unfinished but sweet)" commentary Oh, my boy, IT IS, "Unfinished but sweet"!!! I will ask Colin Tench. Please why didn't you finished them all, BEFORE releasing the whole bunch? To me a prog album is greatly polished. OK, you got some good tunes here, but you got to work a lot on them before get a "prog album" of this stuff. Colin Tench in a very good musician, he plays guitar virtuously, but that's not enough to me. In the end, to me this is but a bunch of pop songs (some with long soft intros): "sweet but unfinished". I can't rate it as a "prog album".

3 stars Live from the Black Hills...

When I stumbled across a prog rock band from the formidable prog rock power center of South Dakota, I knew I had to stop what I was doing and listen. It's so much fun to listen to obscurities from the glory days. This one is no exception. White Wing formed in the late 60s and had regional success before morphing into the band Asia in the mid 70s. Asia had completed a second album and seemed poised for bigger things when it all fell apart, partially because of legal problems arising from the use of their band name, which was clashing with another band called Asia across the pond. But that's another story.

Before there was Asia there was White Wing. This is one of those midwest regional bands like Surprise or even early Curulewski-era Styx, who blended together influences of British progressive rock with plenty of good ole American hard rock. I'm guessing the fans at their shows were far more interested in the kegger after the gig than they were in obsessing over Tony Banks. Again, just a guess. In the summer of 1976 one of their tracks called "Hansa" actually charted with Billboard which is probably not that common for South Dakota prog bands.

White Wing's self-titled and only album was recorded in Minneapolis and is likely the culmination of music the band had been gigging for years at that point. Thus there is much passion and no doubt some nostalgia in these songs, both for the band members and their fan base. There's also quite a bit of good music. My favorite parts are the softer, very dreamy and very 1970s acoustic guitar interludes like "Hansa-Cygnus", "Hansa-Aquila", and "Tuzashottma." The first two sound a bit influenced by early Crimson, bathed in Mellotron, while the latter is more classically influenced like the stuff Emmett would throw on Triumph albums.

Most of the rest of the songs are riff-heavy bluesy hard rock with lots of testosterone, blazing guitar, and occasionally organ splashes. There is an eclectic touch to the songwriting just as there is on those first four Styx albums so you are always in for a surprise or two when listening to White Wing. Some of those surprises you might really like and others might have you reaching for the gong mallet. "Wait Til Tomorrow" is one that sounds a bit different, a bit like 60s Moodies or even early Pete Ham songs. "Harbinger" approaches Deep Purple territory, heavier and no doubt a fan favorite live. "A Little Levity" is a party anthem with a cool, hyper energy strum that sounds like an SG cranked in someone's garage-I swear I've heard it before. Great keys too!

White Wing is never going to make the "greatest" list of anyone around ProgArchives, but I'll tell you, it has the kind of spirit and musical warmth that is sadly missing in many of the cold and technically talented "progressive" bands (and attitudes) of today. While I often enjoy the math-y, the dissonant, and the avant myself, there is so much room in my heart for bands like White Wing. Any band from the Badlands is welcome on my turntable, it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
