ECLECTIC PROG

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Eclectic Prog definition

The term 'eclectic' in the context of progressive rock describes a summation of elements from various musical sources, and the influences and career paths of bands that take from a wide range of genres or styles. While progressive music can be, in a larger sense, eclectic, the 'Eclectic Prog' term is specially meant to reference bands that trespass the boundaries of established Progressive Rock genres or that blend many influences.

Eclectic Prog combines hybrids of style and diversity of theme, promoting many elements from different sources. The Eclectic category recognizes bands that evolved markedly over their career (in a progressive, evolutionary way), or have a plural style without a clear referential core.

The basic features lie within the music's variety, rich influences, art tendencies and classic prog rock elements. Among the representative bands are KING CRIMSON, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR, and GENTLE GIANT.

The Lost Broadcasts
Curved Air Eclectic Prog

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

— First review of this album —
4 stars I did not have the focus on this band in the early 1970's. Not sure why, maybe somehow because they simply were well ahead of time, not easy to pigeonhole anyway. So what, in the aftermath, more than 45 years later, 'The Lost Broadcasts' shows them on rather eclectic paths, while blending classical, symphonic, fusion and folk elements to their own approach of playing sophisticated rock music. Furthermore, of course versatile front singer Sonja Kristina, who for example also was involved in the London version of the musical Hair, marks a special trademark. And she's a real eyecatcher on top of it, you bet!

The band witnessed a lot of line up changes during the years. On this occasion, concerning the year 1971, we have a shift on the bass guitar to notice in any case. However, when following the band's official timeline, drummer Florian Pilkington-Miksa should be the correct listing when it comes to the second session, which took place some months later. But for me it looks like Jim Russell is involved here. Never mind, it doesn't matter in the end. The first song Vivaldi surprisingly sees Sonja sitting behind the keyboards. Darryl Way turns out to be the centre of attention due to some strong violin soloing. And again, differing to the studio version, Sonja is present with vocals too.

It Happened Today and Propositions are wellknown band songs played with a jazzy vibe. Especially the latter evolves to Francis Monkman's showpiece. Excellent! Both Back Street Luv versions then are somewhat peculiar, relatively short, because for what reason ever abandonded, just when Monkman is going to start some solo activity with his guitar. Piece Of Mind finally is their most complex and tricky performance. Taken from the original German Beat Club series and released on Gonzo Multimedia, this DVD/CD couple offers a song collection with acceptable audio and video quality. Quite a spellbinding documentation of the bands qualities.

The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery
The Tangent Eclectic Prog

Review by javajeff

4 stars I always expect a high quality progressive rock album with every release from The Tangent, and The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery is no exception. Andy Tillison is one of the best keyboard players in the business, so I always describe his playing as electric. Like other Tangent releases, The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery has a heavy infusion of jazz that takes the listener on a journey of unexpected turns. As far as compositions go, this is a stellar work to enhance his usually witty lyrics, and exceptional musicianship. It is nice to hear some female vocals mixed in to provide some harmonies, and there is also some spoken narration for variety. The entire band sounds great, and I am always happy with a new release from The Tangent. From the excellent cover art to the satisfying, old school, jazz infused rock and roll arrangements, this should please any progressive rock fan. This will be in my heavy rotation for quite a while.

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars Understanding the lyrics is obviously the advantage here (being the crazy poetry kind of juxtaposing contrary things together, mundane situations made suddenly weird). Think paranoia about being watched, criticism of current shallow society or just a man who thinks he's a chicken and will live in a henhouse. It works more with suggesting/hinting at concepts rather than directly naming them. Knowing Czech is not mandatory though.

It's OK, as there are many instrumental parts of the songs and also instrumental songs only. Very similar both lyrically and musically to Plastic People of the Underground. Being sometimes jazzy (cacophonic kind), it never lasts too long and there is strong melodic theme thorough the tracks. You can bang your head (slowly) to some of them, the rhythm goes on well.

Other than that, Rivertree said the rest well, better than I could. He gets the history of this band right and the (bad for non-conformist, Prog music) situation in Czechoslovakia back in the day this music was conceived (the height of "normalization in Czechoslovakia" - read about it on wiki, it's well written article and interesting I think). And also good translations of songs (knowing both Czech and English well I can tell that he must understand something about our culture and nation. Well, maybe a little correction, first track is actually "Tomcat has arrived (to us)" and the Cell (as in jail cell of medieval type).

One of the most proggiest Czech albums, go for it fellas!

Disen Gage Eclectic Prog

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

4 stars

There are a lot of great bands coming out of Russia these days, and thanks to both the internet and people wanting to promote them, it is getting easier to understand some of what is going on. This is the fourth album from the band, and to say it is intriguing is somewhat under stating what is going on. This is an instrument album, much of which I would imagine was recorded live, as the interaction between the four (plus guests) couldn't have happened any other way. According to the band themselves, the album "is whimsically balancing on a weird edge between psychedelic trance and romantic mood, between a krautrock improv and a soundtrack to a western. To us, the aftertaste of the album feels similar to what one feels after casting an accidental glance at a pile of randomly scattered photos. They may be a part of someone's, or your own life, or they could be snapshots of Nature - but then we are all part of Nature."

Whimsical and weird is probably one of the best ways of describing this album, as I've been playing it a great deal and I still have no idea at all on what is going on. There's RIO, there's King Crimson, Radiohead, fusion, art-rock, avant-garde jazz, plus loads more, all mixed together so that I some ways none of this makes musical sense at all, although at the same time it is in perfect harmony with each other. It builds, it moves, and never with a standard verse/chorus structure, and often not in 4/4 time, but none of that matters as Disen Gage are presenting us with music as a fluid living beast, something that is making its own path. Having heard this I am now intrigued to what the other albums sound like, as when music refuses to conform yet also is as compelling and interesting as this, then it is something very special indeed.

Phersu
Profusion Eclectic Prog

Review by someone_else

4 stars Three years and a half after the excellent RewoToweR, Profusion returns with a new album, Phersu. A phersu is a male figure, depicted in painted Etruscan tombs that appears at first sometime during the 6th century BC. The phersu wears a long beard, a conical cap, a short tunic and a mask. The word means "mask" or "actor", became "persona" in Latin and went viral in many European languages. He plays a role in funerary games.

Like on RewoToweR, the music is an eclectic blend of styles on a foundation of melodic progressive metal with complex rhythm patterns and catchy melodies. The line-up of the band has not changed, which is a good thing. These musicians have a high level of instrumental skill and the clear and rather high-pitched vocals of Luca Latini are always a pleasure to listen to. The album kicks in nicely with "Snooze", a powerful song with a catchy chorus. "Freefall" starts in a similar way but moves into more complex territories. It has some lines from a verse by Georgian poet Galaktion Tabidze. Metaphor or meteor?

"Forgetful Hero" starts with gentle piano and a short powerful part before the vocals enter with a very folky melody. Hereafter it becomes heavier with alternating 5/8 and 6/8 time signatures.

In "Wrinkled Maiden" the first guest musician enters: Anita Rachvelishvili, a distinguished Georgian mezzo-soprano who has performed in many venues all over the globe, slipped out of the opera house to take a short break from the plight of the Bizets and Borodins of that world and handle the vocals in this short song. "Wrinkled Maiden" is recorded to support AIMA, an Italian organization which supports Alzheimer's Disease patients and their families.

"Nomen" is the killer track of this album. This song represents the essence of Profusion in six minutes - a superb showcase of eclecticism. Here we have two more guests: Mamuka Ghaghanidze from the Georgian fusion band The Shin on percussion and vocals and the Polish accordion virtuoso Jakub Mietła. This song is somewhat reminiscent of "Tkeshi/Chuta Chani": the first half is a strong piece of Kartvelo-prog. Halfway the song the vocal part is taken over by Luca Latini and there are some lighter and jazzier passages alternated with pounding metal riffs. The accordion adds a strong folky character to this song.

"Infinity" is one of the resting points on this album. This song is featured by the sound of a harp, though I think it's not a harp, but probably keys. And why not? If in one of the YouTube vids that accompanied this release, at some point the vocals of La Rachvelishvili have a striking resemblance to the sound of a theremin, this should be easily possible.

"Masquerade", "Veteran" and "Vanity Fair" are three songs with a length between four and five minutes and catchy melodies that tend to get stuck in your head. Yet they have alternating rhythm patterns. The album ends gently with with "Forbidden" in which the vocals are only accompanied by a piano.

Phersu may have flown somewhat under the radar so far, but it deserves more attention. It may not have the sparkling and instantly conquering charm of RewoToweR, but it sounds more mature and it is definitely a worthy successor. Not to be left for excavation by later generations.

King Crimson Eclectic Prog

Review by memowakeman
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars For over 14 years I've been waiting for King Crimson to comeback to Mexico City, and this will finally happen this weekend (Jul 14), so as you can imagine, I am as excited as a child with a toy. King Fripp and his colleagues will hit the stage for five unique evenings in which we will find a lot of songs from the band's catalogue, including probably the ones featured on this EP.

This is a short EP that shows us the current lineup, with a bunch of extraordinary musicians that have been in the musical scene for so many years making related and non-related King Crimson music. Robert Fripp has gathered a new elegant lineup that brings Jakko as the singer, a man who has a nice voice that perfectly fits with some of the classic tunes. It is a mistake to try to compare his vocal range with Lake, Wetton or Belew, so when you decide to simply enjoy Jakszyk's voice you will be enchanted by his subtle tune.

Fripp originally recorded guitars for "Heroes", an anthem created by David Bowie who passed away last year. He was friend of Fripp (and so many people) so the King decided to play the song in a frequent basis for the last 2016-tour, and even put its name for this new EP: Heroes (Live in Europe 2016), a nice homage to Bowie. The song can be found here in two forms, the one recorded live in Germany, and a radio-edited version. I am eagerly waiting of it to be performed here in my city.

A wonderful version of "Easy Money" is featured here, though the essence does not change, there are so many figures and solos that I assume change every concert as a part of that improvisation they always give. It is relevant what Mel Collins creates here (and in all of the songs of the tour, actually), he can bring a lot of nuances and atmospheres, he is capable of changing our mood with his sax and flute, and in this track one can easily notice that. Of course, mellotron and guitars play also a cool role on this song, which sounds truly powerful with this lineup.

The weak part of this EP is this edited "Starless" version. Man, you know how powerful that song is, how people love it, you cannot give us only a sneak peek of it. The four minutes are cool and let our imagination play, but it is cruel to cut that masterpiece and I think it was a mistake to include this edited form in this release. "Hell Hounds of Krim" show (as KC use to) the talent and interplay of the drummers. For me it is difficult to recognize what three drummers in the same stage can do, I am not a drummer at all but it will be a delight to watch those big guys playing and exciting us. Of course, uncle Tony Levin who is a true KC reference will also give us countless moments of passion and elegancy through his bass and stick.

This is a good but non-essential EP that give us a hint of how the current lineup sound. The highlight is definitely "Easy Money", followed by "Heroes".

Enjoy it!

Out of the Abyss
Pentwater Eclectic Prog

Review by siLLy puPPy
Collaborator PSIKE & JR/F/Canterbury Teams

5 stars Now here's one for the prog addicts who just can't get enough complexity in their music. PENTWATER were true masters of delivering the perfect balance of melody and crazy complex prog rock elements into their woefully too underground career that formed all the way back in 1970 in the Chicago area by the adventurous duo of Mike Konopka (guitar, violin, flute, vocals) and Tom Orsi (percussion, vocals). These guys were untrained in a traditional sense but were eager in emulating their musical idols and then taking it several steps further. PENTWATER was one of the more unique bands to emerge from the USA. True that they followed down the path that fellow USAmericans Cathedral, Mirthrandir and Yezda Urfa trod with heavy driving complexity on steroids built on the influences of their overseas heroes but more than anyone else, PENTWATER managed to take these influences and melt them together like a prog collector's album collection left in a car on a smoldering hot Phoenix day during a blistering heatwave when temperatures exceed 120 degrees Fahrentheit / 49 degrees Celsius and in the aftermath leave a glistening glob of bizarre and unexpected artistic delight.

While they began their journey as far back as 1970, the duo began as mere imitators covering everything from The Doors, Hendrix and even Ike & Tina Turner however their ambitions were high and without knowing it found a knack and fondness for complex time signatures, polychromatic modulations and idiosyncratic modal interpolations. As they discovered the ever burgeoning world of progressive rock, they realized that their inclinations weren't merely in a vacuum and that there was indeed a desire to hear this strange sort of pomp and awe. As their ambitions flowed, so too did their magnetism and rightfully attracted equally adventurous minds and with the inclusion of Ron LeSaar on bass, Ken Kappel on keys / theremin as well as Phil Goldman on additional guitars and Ron Fox on yet more guitars and oboe too. The band formerly known as PENTWATER RIVER dropped the second part of their name and sallied forth into full musical adventurousness.

Adventurous indeed, but just a tad too late to catch the first wave of prog's golden age. Despite forming at the proper time all the way back in 1970, PENTWATER didn't really get their prog mojo flowing until 1975 and then didn't release their first and only eponymous album until 1977. However, while Beef Records was trying their darndest to steer this loose wire creative outfit into somewhat commercial channels, they didn't quite make a dent with their debut as it came out just when punk and disco were giving the prog world the boot off the world's stage. Luckily PENTWATER was recording and hoarding their heart's desire from 1973 to 1976 and those straight-from-the-heart recordings are featured on this archival release OUT OF THE ABYSS which was only released in 1992. As a result of spanning several years, the tracks are quite varied not only in style but in sophistication and it's easy to peg which came first and which chickens were fully hatched and run around like wild animals doing whatever they wanted.

Musically PENTWATER displays a healthy tribute to the 70s greats. Laced with a freneticism and jittery time signature workouts that pomp prog dreams are made of, OUT OF THE ABYSS displays Emerson, Lake & Palmer keyboard aggressiveness, symphonic Yes inspired classical compositions, Gentle Giant meets Crosby, Stills & Nash harmonic interplay and heavy eclectic jazz rock riffing that can change abruptly in midstream. There are pastural Genesis type segments and some of the keyboard riffs even remind me of Kansas and Supertramp. The beauty is how well it's all thrown in the blender and tastefully poured into a glass to be enjoyed as a prog smoothie with the utmost care in how melodic developments gleefully prance around in full prog regalia with time signatures run amok and filthy abandon at every juncture. In this regard PENTWATER most resembles fellow USAmericans Yezda Urfa in melodic sensibilities fused with reckless prog complexities, a rare trait that few bands can execute with such grace and precision. OUT OF THE ABYSS is tailor made for seekers of the most adventurous prog there is to be heard and more interesting a hundredfold from their sole album released in the 70s. While PENTWATER wasn't the only late to the prog game band that packed a whole career of ideas into a few short songs in the late 70s, they were one of the few USAmerican bands that managed to pull it off so convincingly. This one has become a favorite!

4.5 stars but rounded up because it's not getting enough love in these parts :)

Latin Mass
Os Mundi Eclectic Prog

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is OS MUNDI's ambitious debut released in 1970 where they sought to convert a Catholic Mass into a dark and heavy psychedelic work with rough production. And don't forget the Latin lyrics, and I like that the vocalist has some character to his voice. It took a few spins but this is an excellent Krautrock record but I still prefer the more jazzy second album "43 Minuten". Besides the usual instruments we also get flute, sax, bongos and cello. The sax and cello seems to get buried in the sound but I'm not complaining.

"Ouverture" hits the ground running with the organ out front. Great sound here when it settles into a groove. A calm 1 1/2 minutes in then some guitar expressions come and go. Nice. I like the way this unfolds and changes yet keeps the same vibe. A dark mood arrives after 3 minutes then back to a brighter mood with guitar after 3 1/2 minutes. It blends into "Kyrie" where vocals join in quickly. This is really good. The vocals are manipulated at times as it becomes experimental. Organ, a beat and more as we get this fairly pleasant sound before 2 minutes.

"Gloria" opens with organ as a beat joins in and more as it builds to a full sound. Vocals too. It settles back around 2 minutes but not for long as it picks back up. A rumbling drum solo after 3 minutes goes on to the end. A bit much. "Credo" is a top three tune and my favourite. A full sound hits us right away with vocals. Catchy stuff with some killer bass lines and organ runs. It turns experimental after a minute and then starts to self-destruct as it were with discordant piano and more. Then this amazing organ melody with bass and drums kicks in. So good! Vocals join in. Amazing sound here. Classic krautrock right here people! Check out the guitar 5 1/2 minutes in as he starts to solo. So much going besides this though. Just a great track.

"Credo II" is a top three and we get some grungy sounding guitar with organ, bass, drums then vocals. It lightens 2 1/2 minutes as the vocals also settle down. I like this. Back to the previous theme before 3 1/2 minutes. "Sanctus" is my final top three song and the longest at over 9 minutes. A vocal statement as it were before the guitar starts to solo with organ, bass and more. A calm with vocals a minute in. A relaxed guitar solo 2 minutes in after the vocals step aside. The flute replaces the guitar 3 1/2 minutes in. Sounds like they are improvising a minute later. It settles back as sounds come and go to the end. Interesting stuff.

The previous song blends into "Agnus Dei" where the arrival of the pounding drums signals a change. We get FLOYD- like vocals that pretty much shout the lyrics briefly then we get an almost dead calm. Distorted and insane guitar follows. Vocals are back then it kicks into gear. The organ stands out here and I like how themes are repeated. The guitar is crying out late.

My cd is a re-issue from 2004 on Mason Records but the liner notes are in German unfortunately. Even the pictures inside disappoint because they are so tiny. Great album though.

Giant For A Day
Gentle Giant Eclectic Prog

Review by Caleb9000

1 stars I wish that there was a 0/5 stars option so that I could express my contempt for the absolute trash that is this album. What truly baffles me is the fact that it came from Gentle Giant, a band who is known for its masterful compositional skills, which are able to manifest in their music while there is still plenty of emotion and soul. This album has soul, but it's the same kind that every other radio-rock album has. Cheesy vocal harmonies... check. Predictable vocal melodies and predictable music in general... check. Stupid, pretentious lyrics pretending to be meaningful... check. Guitar work that was stolen from other artists... check. A song called "Words From the Wise" that literally sounds like a carbon copy of "We Built This City"... check. A sellout band... quadruple check.

I actually struggle often to remember a whole lot of the music on here, despite the fact that I've listened to this album multiple times. What surprises me even more is that I can't remember things despite the fact that they stole from songs that have been ingrained into my head. Perhaps the vocals do this. They fail at being catchy so much that it is downright embarrassing. The simple tone of the vocals doesn't suit the music, as it did previous material from this band.

I'm aware that this is a very short review that hardly describes the music, but there is hardly anything to describe, as this album has little to no character of its own. Other pop-rock albums of the late 1970s could be described in a similar manner. This album is an absolute travesty against man and beast alike and because it failed to achieve the commercial success that Gentle Giant was looking for, the band split up. Possibly for the better, as I would hate to imagine them continuing and having this music as their main legacy.

The Power And The Glory
Gentle Giant Eclectic Prog

Review by Caleb9000

5 stars This is an album that uses a formula that many have used years later, for the worse more often than the better. Many bands in the progressive genre tend to try to blend as many different instruments as possible, but not really caring as to what is being played on said instrument, resulting in pretentious music. This is an album that uses the formula correctly, but doesn't get too chaotic for its own good. Rather, it takes a unique approach to each instrument while still blending them together to create a common enough atmosphere to create emotion. "Proclamation" has a rather nightmarish atmosphere while maintaining a groovy-enough rythym to keep a casual listener interested.

Speaking of casual listeners, there is even a dance-type song on here (The Face), though it is so oddly structured and disjointed that one cannot think of any movement to make. But it is still highly enjoyable, due to the melody that is played on a violin that resembles funk, but keeps the classical touches of old. In fact, there are often different genres that are reflected by each instrument on an independent bases, but they all keep the progressive rock overtones to keep things to their roots without going into an over-convoluted mess.

Gentle Giant has been known for their "medeval" approach to vocals, but that aspects comes much more into play here than it does on any other album. In fact, the accent of the vocals almost sounds Scottish, which makes sense, considering the vocal melodies quite strongly resemble medieval Scottish music (there are no bagpipes on the album), while still maintained a blues/soul-rooted twist. They are also rather intricate, making a fair amount of use of the vocalist's range is quite a short amount of time, without sounding like Opera or ancient Middle-Eastern music (not bashing those genres at all).

While their previous album, "In a Glass House" may have been more complex, the melodies on each album were a bit derivative at times and they didn't branch out into other genres like this album does. This is a difficult album to listen to at first, but as times goes by, the album can be appreciated for the masterpiece that is is. This is an absolute landmark in progressive rock history from an underrated band that deserved credit that some other bands simply did not. There are no flaws what so ever, and there is no moral flaw in buying it with your money (or streaming for free).
