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.

World in Motion
Fossil Evolution Crossover Prog

Review by Angelo
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin

— First review of this album —
3 stars Belgian band Isopoda was also referred to as 'the Belgian Genesis' in the 1970s, and has long since disappeared from view. However, former singer and bass player Arnold de Schepper is still very much alive and kicking, and tries to bring the remains of Isopoda back to live, by means of Fossil Evolution, a band in which he plays together with his three sons and one of their friends.

Their debut album World in Motion was released in October of this year, and contains some great music, that does require a attentative listen to be appreciated fully.

A track like opener Beautiful Colours starts out slow and mellow, and just when your attention drifts away, it takes of into a well performed, melodic instrumental that resembles Genesis (and of course Isopoda).

Title track World in Motion itself has a similar song structure, initially starts as an acoustic guitar based folk song fashion. As more instruments joins in, the song gains more power, but it never satisfies me completely, and I have the same problem with The Voice Inside.

The drums and bass, and the vocal harmonies of Arnold and Maarten de Schepper (father and son) make up for that on Next Time.

Oblivion has some jazz influences in its structure, as it builds up to an instrumental climax that is dominated by a guitar solo that reminded me (surprisingly on an album like this) of Savatage.

The icing on the cake of this album is the Isopoda cover Considering. This is a full blown 12-minute epic. The piano and keyboard on this one are nearly perfect. A trumpet solo and the vocal harmonies complete the show. However, the fact that the cover is the best part of the album means that the band has some work to do to be able to top this effort on a next release?.

Entropy Of The Century
MoeTar Crossover Prog

Review by maryes

3 stars 3, 5 stars !!! If you want to hear a really different sound or (at last to me) an uncommon experience of prog music , you can try this with the North-American band MOE TAR second album "Entropy Of The Century". Although I think which the band, could better explore his musical skills with more extensive tracks (only the last track overcoming 5 min ).... However, the melody is complex with unexpected scales and broken beats and there are not monotony. Their sound includes jazz, hard & heavy, pop and a hint of avant-garde. The track 1" Dystopian Fiction" starts with vocal/guitar duo and create a almost dreamer atmosphere follow by an intricate way of scales with bass/guitar duos. The track 3 "Regression To The Mean" is another higher point, where the mix of this unexpected scales and broken beats are easily perceptible . The track 7 " We Machines " is a tecno-pop progressive experience. In a general way the disk are very equilibrated, the musicians are competent . I give 3 stars , but I want make the safeguard which this album deserves a place in my collection !

Gone Through Years
Cyril Crossover Prog

Review by Thierry

4 stars What a big surprise! Behind a rather common cover and name hides a true gem. All Genesis fans will enjoy this album. The vocals are very close to Gabriel's and Collins' but the refined melodies also echo the British band. Add a rich instrumentation (sax, clarinet, mandolin), some female vocals, a great concept and rich lyrics (inspired by Wells' "The Time Machine", more precisely a study of the emotions that the traveler experiences), a great variety of atmospheres, hints of Pink Floyd, of Supertramp and you'll have the recipe for a success. German band Cyril was formed in 2010 following the demise of mainstream rock band Gabria. Denis Strassburg (bass), Ralf Dietsch (guitars), Marek Arnold (keyboards) and Clemens Litschko (drums) were joined by Larry B. (vocals) to form this new band. What a brilliant idea! You don't believe me? Play the record to the average rock fan and watch his reaction. Wow! Highly recommended.

Initiation
Todd Rundgren Crossover Prog

Review by CassandraLeo

5 stars Arguably Rundgren's most progressive solo release, Initation represents him standing athwart a mountain and telling the critics who wanted him to lay off the Eastern spirituality, synthesizer motifs, and progressive rock flourishes to deal with it, a subject he directly addresses in "The Death of Rock and Roll". The critics naturally didn't like it, but Rundgren likely didn't care.

The album is divided into two halves, one a thirty-two minute song suite bookended by "Real Man", the album's only concession to pop music, and the other devoted to the synthesizer experiment "A Treatise on Cosmic Fire", with movements named after the seven chakras and prana, the breath of life. The quality of the music is high throughout, with the too-long a cappella workout "Born to Synthesize" being the album's only arguable misstep, and while Rundgren never completely abandons the melodicism of his pop roots, the album nonetheless represents a bold leap into the unknown and stands as one of his most underrated efforts. Strongly recommended for progressive rock fans, and easily worthy of at least a 9/10 rating.

Fall in Love with the World
United Progressive Fraternity Crossover Prog

Review by Angelo
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin

4 stars One of the albums I ran into through the great community around House of Prog is Fall In Love With the World, by United Progressive Fraternity (UPF).

A line up consisting of former members of Unitopia and The Tangent, give this band has a solid musical base, and it shows on this album. An album that carries a message that was also brought forward by Unitopia earlier - we should take better care of our planet. A broad subject that affects us all and is high the agenda of UPF. This shows in the lyrics, all centered around this theme, each track in its own way.

Opening track is the film music like We only get one world. The album contains a lot of heavy progressive rock, driven by guitars and keyboards. Still, the band has left a lot of room for quieter parts and other instruments as well.

Best proof of this, because it fills about 25% of the album by itself, is the 22 minute epic in 7 movements, Travelling Man (The story of Eshu). This track contains well executed saxophone and (sax-)flute solo's, but also driving guitars and wailing keyboards. To me, the best part of this track, and maybe even the album is the combination of the 3rd and 4th movement here. The former contains an almost marching beat, on top of which the vocals, keyboards and guitar interleave with each other like on early 70s Genesis tracks. It transfers almost seamlessly into the second, which moves from a heavy guitar driven part into a middle eastern feel and then suddenly introduces a violin that shows how well violins and guitars can rock together.

The Water is also an 'ear-catcher', that contains backing vocals and vocal effects recorded by Jon Anderson - making UPF singer and producer Mark Trueack a very happy man, according to the liner notes. The driving beat of this track makes it really work. The acoustic guitar based alternative mix that is included as a bonus is also not bad, but lacks a bit of that drive.

In Choices, Don't look back - turn left and Religion of war, the band manages to mix slightly pop rock choruses with just the musical complexity to make rock into progressive rock. The interplay between the instruments, including that aforementioned saxophone makes this into modern symphonic rock, with a catchy edge.

Surprisingly, the least appealing track to me on this album is the title track, Falling in love with the world. The track is based around an acoustic guitar, with other instruments playing around it in the same way as on the rest of the album. However, the track lacks a bit of power, not in the least due to the very low tempo of the vocals. Not a bad track, but nowhere near for example Travelling man.

Overall, I am pleasantly happy with this album, and the way it UPF combines old school symphonic rock with modern sounds and instrumentation. Some tracks, like Don't look back and Religion of war and certainly The Water are actually good material for getting the band air play on rock radio stations around the world and the internet.

More than worth buying for sure!

Blue Suburbia
Traffic Experiment Crossover Prog

Review by AcquiredTheTaste

— First review of this album —
4 stars I just don't understand why no-one has reviewed this album yet. It's simply fabulous. Great melodies, brilliant musicianship, soaring vocals. A little bit of everything in the mix makes it difficult to categorise (maybe psychedelic prog' ballads?), but the overall result is very assured. Hailing from Guildford, the epicentre of bourgeois middle England, the band describe themselves as "a UK-based independent progressive art rock band". Stuart Chalmers's fluid guitar work forms the backbone of the music, but he's ably supported by an assured rhythm section and there are some lovely, angelic backing vocals. For those British readers who grew up hiding behind the sofa on a Saturday evening, I would also recommend the evocative single Vashta Nerada (Doctor Who Theme). Outstanding

Walking On A Flashlight Beam
Lunatic Soul Crossover Prog

Review by ergaster

5 stars 5/5

In a year where very little of the new music has grabbed my attention, the new Lunatic Soul has roared in like a bullet train; "a breath of fresh air" hardly does it justice. This album is huge. Yes, I know that very often that initial rush of lust does not last. We fall prey to hope and hype, the album gets played exhaustively?and then months later we realize how much we were oversold.

Not this time. I got the files for LS IV early in October for another review, and it has not been out of daily rotation since. It is going to join the other three LS albums as some of the most important music of my life. There is no little niggling doubt, my gut feels just as happy as the rest of me.

The album we have is not exactly the album that had been planned; Mariusz Duda has been quite open about his difficulties with making this record. I think there are also clues in the very first teaser released early on: the images and the colours do not correspond with the album that eventually materialized. Walking on a Flashlight Beam was inspired by deliberate disconnection from society, seclusion, chosen solitude, the artist Zdzisław Beksińsky and his son Tomasz, the Japanese hikikomori phenomenon, and his own brief retreat from the world--an album about self-imposed isolation, loneliness, longing and fear--dark in theme, dark blue in colour scheme, and the most entirely individual statement Duda has yet made in his music. This is a true solo album, unlike any of the others, with all instruments and vocals his own, only the drums left to the inspired and underrated genius of former Indukti member Wawrzyniec Dramowicz. It was clearly the album he needed to make, and the results are stunning.

Intricate and cinematic, it is an album of deep emotional resonance. It is structured in three distinct parts over 9 songs: the first three tracks are dark, intense, electronically-driven, building a mood of foreboding, despair, desperate yearning. The standout song here, and arguably on the entire album, is "Gutter", an absolutely monstrous track of charging, relentless, downright sexy oriental rhythms and a massive bassline...and the singing. Oh my god, the singing!

The middle section is mostly instrumental, ambient and textural: "The Fear Within" all anxiety-inducing jagged intersecting rhythms and themes. After that "Treehouse" comes as a bit of a shock, with its conventional song-structure and poppy upbeat feel, it almost seems out of place, but not quite.

The last third of the album is the climax both musically and lyrically. "Pygmalion's Ladder" is the long piece, very prog-like in its intricacy and expert shifts in mood over its 12 minutes, with echoes of "Gutter" in its strong rhythms, eastern themes, and fine singing. After the poignant "Sky Drawn in Crayon" the album ends with a sense of resolution in the majestic title track--this is an immense song, and to my mind represents maybe the finest (or so close to it as to make little difference) piece of music that Mariusz Duda has ever written. Soaring, orchestral, with staggeringly beautiful melody and vocal moments, it would be perfect if it didn't take a bar or two too long to end.

WoaFB is unmistakably Lunatic Soul, but it does have a different feel from the other three albums. It is darker and denser in texture, heavily dependent on electronics and effects, but all the key elements are present: no electric guitar, lively with percussion, and despite the sometimes ambient feel it is very melody-driven. The real revelation for me though is the jaw-dropping singing from Duda. He is known for his beautiful voice, but on this album he pulls out all the stops: subtle, nuanced, heartbreakingly delicate, an unsuspectedly wide range and control, this man has some serious vocal chops.

The more I hear this album, the more I want to hear it. Maybe I'm biased, but to hell with it. It is what it is. It hits an emotional chord in me that pretty much nothing else has come close to even finding. Not only is it orders of magnitude better than the vast majority of music I have heard this year, it tops most things from the past half-decade at least. I always suspected that Mariusz Duda deserves way more notice for his pure songwriting skills and musical vision, and this album demonstrates why.

Magnolia
Pineapple Thief Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars UK band THE PINEAPPLE THIEF was formed back in 1999 by composer and musician Bruce Soord. Initially a self-described bedroom project, that have developed into a well defined and rather popular band as the years have gone by. "Magnolia" is their tenth studio production, and was released through UK label Kscope in the late fall of 2014.

Whenever you're dealing with a Kscope production, you know that no matter what kind of music the album contains the mix, production and overall sound quality will be excellent. This latest production by The Pineapple Thief is no exception there, those fond of well produced material in general will get their fix solved quite nicely here. The sound comes across as fairly analogue, in that it doesn't come across as compressed in the manner in which many contemporary productions may be, and the soundscapes comes across as warm sounding and organic to my ears.

As far as the music itself, the lead vocals of Soord makes certain comparisons undeniable for me. He's got a voice that in timbre and approach does have some clear similarities to Radiohead's Thom Yorke, up to and including a certain sad, mournful touch, and this aspect is dominant enough to give this entire album a slight late 90's Radiohead sheen. I might add that Soord has an excellent vocal control, and he rarely if ever have that desperate quality to his delivery that Yorke has. Yorke as a vocalist may come across as a guy that appears to be in the middle of a nervous breakdown, while Soord always sounds like he is in full control of events. So while there are similarities, especially in the songs or sequences that pairs off Soord's voice with a careful, fragile instrumental backdrop, they remain similarities of a more distant kind. Related you might say, rather than identical.

Whenever The Pineapple Thief hits a more hard edged stride, which is fairly often, the band comes across as rather more similar to the likes of Porcupine Tree. With pumping bass, driving rhythms and dark, compact guitar riffs with or without noticeable keyboard supplements, The Pineapple Thief is a band that could give Porcupine Tree a good run for the money indeed. Again it is a case of similar features and a similar approach in my opinion, related but far from identical.

Rather than exploring these two facets separately The Pineapple Thief tends to blend these two somewhat different sounding traits into a complete whole. Sometimes by pairing off these tendencies in calmer and harder edged sequences following each other, at other times by using certain aspects from both directions in a seamless whole. There are songs here that sounds more like one or the other, but the general and overall feel I get is a band that assembles aspects from both of these indie rock flavored aspects of progressive rock into a whole, and manage to do so in a manner that sounds natural and logical too I might add. Which indicates that The Pineapple Thief, rather than being a band that strives to incorporate influences from the aforementioned bands, is a band that share influences with both Radiohead and Porcupine Tree. And that it is due to this that they share certain similarities with both of these bands as far as sound and expression is concerned.

It all ads up to an enjoyable production of indie flavored progressive rock. The album as a whole comes across as on that should have a strong mainstream potential, but also a creation with enough ear candy and sophisticated features to be of interest to fans of progressive rock, and then in particular those fond of bands like Radiohead, Porcupine Tree as well as those with a general fascination for artists that approach progressive rock from an indie rock perspective.

Clessidra
Laviŕntica Crossover Prog

Review by andrea
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Laviŕntica come from Rome and their origins date back to the late eighties when was formed Alterego, a band influenced by the neo progressive sounds of Marillion, Twelfth Night, IQ, Pendragon, Ezra Winston and Leviathan. Later the band changed the original name into Laviŕntica (which, according to their website, is a contraction of the words "La Via Antica" that can be translated as "The Old Way") to underline their choice to play in a retro style. Anyway, it wasn't until 2013 that the band, after many years of hard work and various problems, managed to self-release a full length debut album with a consolidated line up featuring Marco Palma (electric guitar), Paolo Perilli (bass, vocals), Luciano Stendardi (piano, keyboards), Paolo Musolino (keyboards, acoustic guitar, vocals) and Andrea Schiappelli (drums). During the recording sessions they were helped by some guest musicians such as Alice pelle (vocals), Andrea Bongiovanni (drums) and Laura Senatore (violin) who contributed to enrich the sound and the result is a nice, introspective concept album about the relativity of time entitled Clessidra (Hourglass). The band's melodic vein tends to prevail upon an overtly challenging, adventurous musical approach, but this is not a cheesy album and lovers of neo prog bands from the eighties will undoubtedly appreciate it.

The opener is the short instrumental "Intro" that sets the atmosphere. The mood is dreamy and the music conjures up a peaceful springtime landscape... "Nel vento" (In the wind) describes in music and words a day stolen from the daily grind and spent in the country. There's an open field covered with dancing flowers and colourful butterflies flying all around. Your hands lightly touch the grass, you can hear the sound of the shaking leaves of a near tree and breathe fresh air. Suddenly you begin to move your hands, maybe you're dreaming to fly, you're taking off... Live and never stop!

Next comes "Sole" (Sun) where the rhythm rises and the music flows with a flapping of wings. The soaring vocals warn you that the horizon is just an illusion and that you have to follow your inner light. A free man is ageless, everyone has a leading soul and a different fate... Then the sound of thunders and pouring rain introduce the following "La pioggia" (The rain), where the music and lyrics invite you to think about the secret messages that the rain can write carving the rock, drop after drop for millennia. From above you can see shining shadows moving in the puddles along the streets, there are people invoking the rain and others fearing its force but who can really understand what the rain has to say?

Then comes the melodic, dreaming "Finché il giorno non finisce" (Until the end of the day) where the music and lyrics invite you to savour every single moment of the day, every instant of your life. Now you can relax and look at a wonderful landscape from a lookout on the seashore but Time is always on the run and it never comes back, your thoughts and feelings soon will become just memories... The following "Icaro" (Icarus) is another nice ballad that celebrates the freedom to fly high toward the sun running after your dreams. Even if you know that you have to come back, for a free heart the desire to fly can never fade...

On "Tempo" (Time) the atmosphere becomes a bit darker. Your beautiful day is coming to an end. Make use of your time because life is short, so try to gather speed and run after your time... Carpe diem! The following "Clessidra" (Hourglass) is light and melancholic. The wheel of time is still in spin, there are shadows and dust clouds running down a metaphorical hourglass in the sky. A night train takes you home but the evening breeze is still carrying thoughts and smells waiting for the moonshine that will reflect them. The long, complex instrumental "Laviantica" (The old way) concludes the album with a solemn pace and a strange atmosphere filled with dreams and memories.

All in all, this is a really good work that deserves some attention. Have a try and judge by yourselves: you can listen to the complete album on bandcamp. By the way, the download version is slightly different from the CD, without the intro and the sounds that bind all the single tracks together... If you buy the physical copy you'll get both!

Jean-Jacques Toussaint Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Born in 1956, bassist/keyboardist Jean-Jacques Toussaint starts his journey in the music field in 1975, composing and playing music for theater, before joining his first band Phoenix in 1977 and building a strong relationship with drummer Eric Delaunay.Upon meeting with guitarist Remy Chauvidan in mid-80's, they formed Tiemko, releasing four albums until 1996, when the band dissolved after the sudden death of Delaunay.Toussaint reappeared in discography about a decade later, in 2009, with the album ''From Tiemko to travelling'' on Musea Records, where he teams up again with ex-bandmate Remy Chauvidan and ex-Abus dangereux drummer Francois Verly.The line-up though is pretty extended with 9 more guests, mostly with a Jazz background, helping during the sessions.

This is a nice sum of Toussaint's career as a composer and his deep interest in Classical, Jazz and Rock Music, containing hints from his career with TIEMKO, but mostly remindind me of JEAN-PIERRE ALARCEN's early stuff, exploring the grounds of Jazz Fusion and Classical Music in the same album.Different tracks have different protagonists in this album, there are the standard TIEMKO-spiced pieces with the intense Fusion acrobatics, the display of atmospheric keys and the slight references to the complexity of KING CRIMSON'S music, then the whole thing goes to the opposite direction, proposing arrangements with chamber instrumentation and even some MIRIODOR-like intricate R.I.O.-flavored instrumentals.The music is often quirky and the one and only questionable element, appearing also in the TIEMKO releases, is the use of virtual keyboard programming, that makes the sound a bit inhuman and sterile.Composingwise though there is a lot to like in here.From the bombastic bass/drums/keyboard sections with the powerful Fusion background to the cinematic textures, even if held down by the programmed orchestrations, and from the laid-back Classical arrangements to the exhibition of Avant-Garde/Electronic Music with the use of effects and keyboards.So, stylistically this works is all over the place, sometimes with success, others with a decent result, which definitely neded some improvement.

The return of the living history of TIEMKO in a similar style and featuring some expanded deliveries in the field of R.I.O. and Classical/Chamber Music.Good and warmly recommended stuff.
