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.

In The Court Of The Crimson King
King Crimson Eclectic Prog

Review by Luqueasaur

5 stars INTRODUCTION FEATURING "EXPLANATION OF WHY THIS ALBUM IS SO MEANINGFUL"

If you attempt to picture yourself in 1969 and think of what are the other great "progressive rock" acts going on, you'll find plenty of good stuff. However as you may put, though, most of them were pretty mild. They didn't achieve their full potential in this sense, they were still ascending into a higher form of prog being. Look at YES, GENESIS, CAMEL, etc. All of them are genre-defining bands that, by 1969, were pretty tame. So under this context, KING CRIMSON was groundbreaking.

If you still can't picture the situation, let me give you an analogy. In the early 20th Century, Europe's avant-garde Modernist movements influenced and dictated many peripheric nations' cultural endeavors. This was the case for Brazil, too, until an ambitious young lad called Mário de Andrade, hoping to give his nation's culture identity, shoot out for the whole world to see the Cannibal Manifesto, which shook the nation and brought Brazil forward to the Modernist era. Naturally, Mário wasn't the first with this revolutionary dream, as many contemporaries of his were "militant" Modernists as well; but the thing is: Mário was the man that materialized it. That made it go from "hopes and dreams of progressive artists" into "a truly concrete movement".

Now, try to swap "Brazil" with "rock", "Europe's avant-garde movements" with "popular, repetitive and radio- friendly approach", "Mário de Andrade" with "King Crimson" and you'll be able to picture what I'm talking about. Right? Right? Great.

So, say what you want, but IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING is a compulsory item in the catalog of any prog enthusiast, for historical value. Undeniably, this album is overrated. But assuming of its importance for the genre, it's fair. Let people worship it, even if it's a little out of proportion... what harm does it make?

Now, regarding musical value, to how enjoyable this is... that's a whole different story. In general, the album is highly diverse and there's no way to label it as of, say, "well, if you like jazz, listen to this stuff" (which in my opinion is the most progressive thing to be). If you read the definition of "what is prog rock" and listen to several five-stars albums, you'll find said definition a little out of touch, as if there's not much connection between what is spoken and what really happens. Not with this. "There's a change from blues influence to jazz/classical music"? CHECK. "It's highly complex"? Look at Mirrors (21st Century Schizoid Man's instrumental part), CHECK. "It tries to be distinct from the pop type of music of the time"? Well, just how many songs are similar to the homonymic track? CHECK.

So, in short, we've got three adjectives for those lads: DISTINCTIVE. INNOVATIVE. UNIQUE.

A SMALL COMMENTARY ON EACH BAND MEMBER (FROM MOST TO LEAST HIGHLIGHTED).

MICHAEL GILES, just as fellow reviewer ProgMetaller2112 says, brings this up a notch. Not only his virtuosity is amazing, but he is immensely creative and present on EACH FRIGGIN' TRACK. I can bet that on every single song you'll notice him and his drumming shenanigans. He's the star of this whole damn thing.

IAN MACDONALD's superb performance at the instrumental parts "Mirrors" and "The Return of the Fire Witch" are the next big thing on this album. It's amazing that a man at one moment can be deranged and insane while on the other so calm and efficient.

ROBERT FRIPP's performance on both the acoustic and electric guitar are superb. His performance on Mirrors and In the Court of the Crimson King are spectacular, to say the least.

GREG LAKE's vocals are, above everything, FITTING, for each track. Which the way I see is more important than being "good" or "enjoyable".

PETER SINFIELD's lyrics are interesting. Even though he (probably) repeats the topic three times (Vietnam War & Politics on 21st Century Schizoid Man/Epitaph/In the Court of the Crimson King), the theme doesn't feel repetitive.

NOW, I PRESENT YOU, EACH TRACK. INDIVIDUALLY "ANALYZED".

21st Century Schizoid Man is the first thing Fripp and his lads brings to you, with what I personally consider the true "embodiment, archetype, paragon" of progressive rock - alternatively of what I deem the popular opinion is - and not In the Court of the Crimson King. Well, this might be a little because I prefer songs with three-digit tempos. Here we have the most marvelous fusion between jazz and rock I've seen, folks. It's a maddened and aggressive, as I've read somewhere, "proto-heavy metal" (or should it be progressive metal? Or would it be jazzgressive metal?). I believe it's in the vein of freestyle jazz. It features distorted vocals and a disorderly vibe. Intentional, you might deduce correctly; this song is a criticism of the Vietnam War and politics (Sinclair's first attempt to tackle the subject). The instrumental piece "Mirrors" (aforementioned, like, ten times by now?) is the pinnacle of musicianship in this album, where the saxophone, drums, and guitars altogether jam an insanely delightful cacophony. You get another verse & chorus and then the chaotic outro, which, in comparison to the next track, is a shock.

I Talk to the Wind is a calm song with three verses and two chorus repetitions, and overall simple and straightforward lyricism (accordingly to Genius.com, it's about religiousness, as "the wind" is a metaphor for God). Don't be fooled to associate "calm" with "uninteresting" or "boring", though (leave this to Epitaph). In spite of the track's tranquil atmosphere, the drums are potent, MacDonald's flute solo is serene, but attention-grabbing. I'm not a fan of slow/mellow songs, but even so, I'll definitively give this song more than only one shot.

Epitaph is a slow but definitively not calm song. It's now leaning towards a more emotional approach. It hasn't called my attention, both instrumental parts - the bridge "March for No Reason" and the outro "Tomorrow and Tomorrow" - are forgettable, just the song as a whole. It is vigorous if you put in perspective Lake's passionate performance as he sings the lyrics - themed by a lack of faith on humanity as we march towards an apocalypse because those in power are fools... and because of nukes, too - but otherwise, its just... bland. The very definition of "60's unhopeful song about Vietnam War". I find this the low point of the album.

Moonchild is another calm song, although not in the same sense of "I Talk to the Wind" (serene). I'd, instead, use the word soothing. The first part, "The Dream", brings me images of nighttime, melancholy and loneliness as the tale of the Moonchild are told (possibly referring to Aleister Crowley's 1917 novel, 'Moonchild'). Eventually, part two begins - The Illusion. Imagine if King Crimson decided to make an instrumental lullaby only with three instruments: a piano, a vacillating guitar, and maddened drums. For ten minutes. Impromptu. Yeah. Well, it's nowhere as bad as it seems, BUT the instruments are flickering. It can just go calm and rather boring right after an interesting drum passage. And, most importantly, out of nowhere you hear a blasting Mellotron that gets you thinking, "Hey, that's not Moonchild, that's In the Court of the Crimson King!".

Finally, the legendary In the Court of the Crimson KIII-III-III-III-III-IIIIIING. Folks, this is an amazing song. The Mellotron riff makes you think "Now that's some real psychedelic stuff" (and in a good way!), it's so simple yet so effective at being distinctive and easily recognizable. This is yet another track criticizing Vietnam War. 21st Century Schizoid Man did so by predicting a lot of bad stuff happening, and being angry about it. Epitaph did that too, but this time, by being emotionally appealing. In the Court of the Crimson King does so by being highly poetic and mesmerizing, and variating from powerful passages (such as the chorus) to smooth ones (such as the flute solo of "The Return of the Fire Witch"). Right after the last chorus, as the outro "The Dance of the Puppets"'s silence ends, a rather... unexpected, short piece comes in. "Is this Zelda? Nintendo? On '69?" You'll ask yourself. Would I be surprised to know this song influenced 8-bit music? Not one bit (no pun intended).

SO, IN THE END..

. this is an essential masterpiece of progressive rock music. Personally, I can't consider this one of my favorite albums - although 21st Century Schizoid Man is my newest darling - but I don't even need it to be to recognize how amazing KING CRIMSON was. To think of this as a debut (well, to be honest KING CRIMSON'S debut was actually live to, like, 250,000 people maybe?) just gets me even more amazed. Anyone who's new to the genre should listen to this. Anyone who's old should listen again. Anyone who likes good music should listen to this. Anyone who hates Vietnam War and wants it to end should listen to it. Anyone who likes Mellotron should listen to this.

Okay, I'll make myself simpler: anyone, and that includes everyone, should listen to this.

A Lenda do Quarteto 1111
Quarteto 1111 Eclectic Prog

Review by VianaProghead

3 stars Review Nº 107

"A Lenda Do Quarteto 1111" is a compilation of Quarteto 1111 and was released in 2008. It has songs released by the band on EP's, singles and also on their eponymous debut studio album, Quarteto 1111, released in 1970.

As I wrote before, the presence of Quarteto 1111 in the end of the 60's in Portugal represents the birth of progressive rock music in my country. Nothing was the same after them. They were a breath of fresh air in Portugal, at the time. Quarteto 1111 was a band strongly influenced by the British music of those days, mainly The Beatles, despite their lyrics were almost in Portuguese. They made music influenced by the British music with typical Portuguese features.

"A Lenda Do Quarteto 1111" has twenty tracks. The first track "Os Faunos" was released on their debut EP. It's a song about fauns, which was a rustic Latin god or goddess of Roman mythology. The second track "A Lenda De El- Rei D. Sebastião" is the title track of their debut EP released in 1967. It's about a Portuguese king who disappeared during the battle of Alcácer-Kibir, in Morocco, and Portugal lost its independence to Spain in the XVII century. The third track "Balada Para D. Inês" is the title track of their second EP released in 1968. It's about the tragic love of infant D. Pedro, the future king of Portugal, with D. Inês de Castro, a noble Galician, which was executed by order of the father's king, D. Afonso IV, the king of Portugal, in the XIV century. The fourth track "Partindo-se" was also released on their second EP. It's about anguish and sadness in our eyes when we see our beloved family depart to distant places in search of a better life. The fifth track "Dona Vitória" is the title track of their third EP released in 1968. It tells us about the contrast between those who lived well and had a good job and those who lived in the suburbs and had no job. The sixth track "Meu Irmão" was released as a single in 1968. It's a psychedelic song that speaks about love, solidarity, friendship and brotherhood among men. The seventh track "Dragão" was also released on their second EP. It's about the sad, dull, hard and routine life of any working man. The eighth track "Os Monstros Sagrados" was released on their single "Génese" in 1969. It's about the purity of nature against the human technology and its industrial applications. The ninth track "Génese" is the title track of a single released in 1969. It's about the beauty of nature in contrast with people that suffers because the different colour of their skin. The tenth track "Bissaide" was released on their single "Nas Terras Do Fim Do Mundo" in 1969. It's a very simple instrumental song. The eleventh track "Nas Terras Do Fim Do Mundo" is the title track of a single released in 1969. It's about one of the most brilliant chapters of Portuguese History, the Portuguese discoveries, released in the XV century. The twelfth track "Domingo Em Bidonville" was released on their first studio album in 1970. It's about Portuguese emigrants who left their country in search of a better life, and leave their country, family and friends. The thirteenth track "João Nada" was also released on their debut album. It's about emigration. It's about a man who returns to his homeland, at the end of his hard working life, and he has nobody waiting for him, except his coffin. The fourteenth track "As Trovas Do Vento Que Passa" was also released on their first album. It's a cover of a song of Adriano Correia de Oliveira with a poem of Manuel Alegre. It's a song of the resistance of Portuguese University students against the dictatorship regime. The fifteenth track "Maria Negra" was another song released on their first album. It's an anti-racist song about the women with black skin, which are often viewed and treated as inferior human beings. The sixteenth track "Todo O Mundo E Ninguém" is the title track of a single released in 1970. It's a song with intimate and symbolic lyrics about life and dead. The seventeenth track "É Tempo De Pensar Em Termos De Futuro" was also released on their single "Todo O Mundo E Ninguém". It's another song with intimate lyrics. It tells us that it's now time to think about to build a better world, uniting races and breaking down the barriers. The eighteenth tack "Back To The Country" is the title track of their single released in 1970. It's a song that appeals to men to the return to the fields. It represents the first attempt to internationalize the band singing in English. The nineteenth track "Ode To The Beatles" is the title track of a single released in 1971. It's represents homage to The Beatles. It represents also the second attempt to internationalize the band singing in English. The twentieth track "Uma Nova Maneira De Encarar O Mundo" was released on their single "Sabor A Povo" in 1972. It's a song, as its name indicates, which makes an appeal to a new way of seeing the world. This is a way of seeing it with more peace and love.

Conclusion: "A Lenda Do Quarteto 1111" is the third compilation of Quarteto 1111. The others are "A Lenda De El- Rei D. Sebastião" and "Singles And Ep's". Like the other two, it's also a very interesting and important compilation with many similitude with the other two. After reviewing the other two compilations, I can say that "A Lenda Do Quarteto 1111" is a better option, because is the biggest and most complete of the three. If you want to have on a single album many of the songs released by the group and dispersed on so many singles and EP's, this is the right place to have it.

Snafu
East Of Eden Eclectic Prog

Review by Zephyr

4 stars Probably the place to begin and end your East of Eden experience. The more psych-rock of their debut has not aged very well. In contrast, Snafu is an engagihg listen every time. I think about how Kansas' song "Leftoverture" was a series of stitched-together musical ideas and favorite warm up jams; maybe because we have become so familiar with that great piece that it all seems to naturally flow together. But, of course, you can certainly hear the not so subtle transitions within the piece that one could argue make it sound exactly the way it was made. With Snafu I get that same feeling, but the changes that occur (the many that don't build on the theme, that just start a new one) seem very exciting. That anticipation of changes of tempo is, dare I say enthralling. This is a real solid album, and any critique I've read about lack of cohesion is exactly what is great about it. Lots of musical ideas to consume....and in the end, just like Leftoverture, it all seems just as it should be. Adding to the many melodies and anti-melodies explored here are an array of fascinating instruments that add a non-western flavor that is quite exotic to these New York ears. I listen to a lot of prog and I keep coming back to this. Other reviewers have done a great job with the song by song rundown. Listen with a nice system for max affect.

Bootcut Eclectic Prog

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars 3.5 stars really

This band from Sweden named Bootcut formed by Beardfish keybordist and singer Rikard Sjöblom helped by a bunch of musicians with quite high skills. Bootcut released so far two albums, the latest being their best so far. De Fluff is the name of the release issued in 2006. This is keyboard orientated prog, with a slightly jazzy feel. The entire album is quite accesible in sound, but has plenty of tricks in instrumental sections, the hammond is present and in combination with the drums and guitar in places and even sax are quite enjoyble most of the time. The music is groovy and has that jazzy atmosphere, the pieces are kinda short all are under 6 min, but all are energic and well played. All in all a decent album towards great in places, I do prefer this band Bootcut more then anything Beardfish released over the years. Very fine booklet and all package. A little known band who gone under the radar of prog collectors.

The Bob Lazar Story Eclectic Prog

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars Released in 2015, Matt said this EP "sounds like two small bands having a fight on some stairs.". I guess one of those bands plays acoustic guitars, while the other is into harder rock, and somehow they have to share a drummer. And they all like Zappa, and Fripp, and jazz, and being able to make musical sense out of intricate melodies where nothing should gel, but does. Somewhere along the line Chris and Matt managed to misplace Mike, so they were down to a duo. There are even quite a few "vocals" here, but they are mostly spoken word so it doesn't detract too much from the instrumental insanity that is going on for the rest of the piece. One of the songs is nearly nine minutes long, but another is only sixteen seconds, with the seven songs getting just past the twenty-minute mark.

All their albums/EPs stretch musical boundaries without ever seeming to do so, as this music is just so easy to listen to, yet shouldn't be. I was playing this at work the other day, and I was asked what on earth it was as it was so compelling. When I told him that they were a local band (I now work in the city these guys are from) he was amazed and immediately went off to find out more. Which is exactly what you should be doing right now. Music as adventurous and wonderful as this needs full support. They have signed to Bad Elephant for their next album, which should be out in a few months' time. Until then get over to Bandcamp and listen to some music that will blow your mind.

Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars Looking at their Bandcamp page, I can see that Matt Deacon describes his band as "Purveyor of tritonal wankery, The Bob Lazar Story hail from Christchurch, NZ and offer you an oasis of ProgMathsyFusion to soothe your weary earholes". I've been lucky enough to hear both their albums, and their first EP, with this one following in 2014. Seven songs, with a total playing length of fourteen minutes, this is even more eclectic and brilliant than normal! One could argue that this is a close relative to Zappa, while I have also seen someone describe their music as "a tasty cake of dribbly madness". Chris Jago has an incredibly important part to play behind the drums, making them much more of an in your face instrument, very much in keeping with jazz, than one may expect from a rock act. Mike Fudakowski has a similar role with the bass, and they both try to keep up with the manic Matt on guitar.

They are all obviously off their rockers, as this music is hard to describe, yet also always makes total perfect sense. It is melodic, controlled, easy to listen to, yet takes King Crimson to whole new level. Why these guys aren't huge I will never understand, but until the world sits up and takes notice, us in the minority will smile and nod knowingly that these guys are musical geniuses

Voyage Of The Acolyte
Steve Hackett Eclectic Prog

Review by Andre the Aeropagite

5 stars This is considered by the majority the best album steve hackett ever recorded. And I can understand why. It is in my top 10 best rock albuns of all time. There is not a single weak track in this recording. Starting with the frenetic drum solo in ace of wands, passing through the calm and peaceful Hands Of The Priestess Part I, and finishing in the dense and powerful Shadow Of The Hierophant , the album flows like a roller coaster. Alternating fast moments with calm ones really sounds very nice, Hackett definitely hit the Jackpot. He also deserves a lot of credit for the songwriting (it does not sound like a solo album from a first class progressive rock guitarrist) and for the selection of the musicians. His brother John Hackett on flute, Robin miller on oboe, Sally oldfield and Phill Collins on vocals and mike rutherford on bass guitar. What else can you say when you have 3/5 of Genesis on the lineup. I highly recomend to every prog fan out there. RATINGS 1. Ace Of Wands - (8,5/10) - starts with a frenetic drum solo by Phil Collins and evolves to a calm section with flute and keyboards... very nice opening track. 2. Hands Of The Priestess Part I (9/10) - pastoral song with great performances by hackett in the acoustic guitar and his brother John in the flute. 3. A Tower Struck Down (7/10)- the worst song in the album, however it is still good. 4. Hands Of The Priestess Part II (8,5/10) - beautiful track. The problem? Too short. 5. The Hermit (9/10) - another pastoral song with nice acoustic guitar. 6. Star Of Sirius (10/10) - the second best song in the album, just amazing. 7. The Lovers (8,0/10) - contains a very nice acoustic guitar sound but it is too short. 8. Shadow Of The Hierophant (10/10) - best track. a Progressive rock masterpiece.

Quarteto 1111 Eclectic Prog

Review by VianaProghead

3 stars Review Nº 106

"Singles And EP's" is a compilation of Quarteto 1111 and was released in 2006. It has songs released by the band on EP's, singles and also on their eponymous debut studio album, Quarteto 1111, released in 1970.

As I wrote before when I reviewed their debut compilation "A Lenda De El-Rei D. Sebastião", the importance of Quarteto 1111 to Portuguese popular music is completely undeniable, especially for the birth of Portuguese progressive rock music. The band was formed in 1967, in Estoril, a place near Lisbon, and can be considered the father of Portuguese progressive rock music. They opened the door for some excellent albums made by great progressive bands in Portugal.

"Singles And EP's" has fifteen tracks. The first track "A Lenda De El-Rei D. Sebastião" was their first song and was recorded on their debut EP, with the same name, released in 1967. It's a song based in a Portuguese legend and is about the missing of El-Rei D. Sebastião, a Portuguese king, allegedly killed in the fields of Morocco during the battle of Alcácer-Kibir. The legend said that he should appear again on a foggy morning to help Portugal to recover its independence lost to Spain in the XVII century. The second track "Os Faunos" was also released on their debut EP. It's a song about fauns, which was a rustic Latin god or goddess of Roman mythology often associated with enchanted woods and the Greek god Pan and his satyrs. The third track "Gente" was another song released on their debut EP. It's a song about anonymous poor persons abandoned in the world, without having home, care and love of someone. The fourth track "Balada Para D. Inês" was released on their second EP, with the same name, in 1968. It's a song about a famous and very popular episode of the history of Portugal, in the XIV century, the tragic love of the infant D. Pedro, heir of Portuguese throne and future king D. Pedro I with D. Inês de Castro, a noble Galician, which was executed by order of father's king, the king of Portugal D. Afonso IV, because he felt their love immoral and illegitimate. The fifth track "Partindo-se" was also released on their second EP. It's a sad song about emigration. It's about the anguish and the sadness in our eyes when we see our beloved family depart to distant places in search of a better life. The sixth track "Dona Vitória" was released on their third EP, with the same name, in 1968. It's about the big difference that separated the rich from the poor in those times in Portugal, in the dictatorship regime. It tells us about the contrast between those who lived well and had a good job and those who lived in the suburbs and had no job. The seventh track "Nas Terras Do Fim Do Mundo" was released as a single, with the same name, in 1969. It's a song based in one of the most brilliant chapters of the Portuguese History. It's about the deeds of the heroic Portuguese navigators, who in the XV century, discovered new lands, "giving new worlds to the world". The eighth track "Meu Irmão" was released as a single in 1968. It's a psychedelic song that speaks about love, solidarity, friendship and brotherhood among men. The ninth track "Domingo Em Bidonville" was also released on their first album. It's a song about the Portuguese emigrants who left their country in search of a better life, but who still miss their country, family and friends. The tenth track "João Nada" was released on their first album. It's another song about emigration. This is a very sad song about a man who returns to his homeland at the end of a hard working life far way from Portugal. The poem tells us that he has no longer his family, his friends and his dog waiting for him. Nothing is waiting for him, except his coffin. The eleventh track "As Trovas Do Vento Que Passa" was released on their first album. It's a cover of a song of Adriano Correia de Oliveira with a poem of Manuel Alegre. Originally, it was an important song, a symbol of the resistance of Portuguese Universitary students to the dictatorship regime in Portugal. The twelfth track "Epílogo" was also released on their first album. It's a song with short lyrics and is an ode to the nature and to the men, in their effort to find perfection in the search of God. The thirteenth track "Back To The Country" was released on their single with the same name, in 1970. It's an appeal to men to their return to the fields. It represents the first attempt to internationalize the band singing in English. The fourteenth track "Ode To The Beatles" was released as a single in 1971, with the same name, and represents a homage to The Beatles. It represents the second attempt to internationalize the band singing in English. The fifteenth and last track "Uma Nova Maneira De Encarar O Mundo" was released on their single "Sabor A Povo", in 1972. It's a song, as its name indicates, which makes an appeal to a new way of seeing the world. This is a way of seeing it with peace and love.

Conclusion: Like "A Lenda De El-Rei D. Sebastião", their debut compilation, this is also a very interesting and important compilation released by Quarteto 1111, because it was possible to have in only one album many of the songs released by the group in so many singles and EP's. However, of the fifteen tracks recorded on "Singles And EP's", only six are new in relation to that previous compilation. So, actually it doesn't bring to us practically any new stuff. Anyway, this is perhaps preferable to "Singles And EP's" because it has more three songs than the first one has.

Prog is my Ferrari. Jem Godfrey (Frost*)

The Total Experience Live In Liverpool
Steve Hackett Eclectic Prog

Review by SouthSideoftheSky
Special Collaborator Symphonic Team

3 stars A mixed bag

Steve Hackett has been touring relentlessly for a long time and he has been extremely prolific when it comes to releasing live albums/videos from his tours going all the way back to the late 90's with the release of The Tokyo Tapes. For the last five years or so he has been touring extensively under the concept of "Genesis Revisited" and this period alone has already spawned several live releases including Genesis Revisited: Live At Hammersmith in 2013 and Genesis Revisited: Live At The Royal Albert Hall in 2014. The most recent in this series is the present one released in 2016 entitled The Total Experience: Live In Liverpool. The "total experience" refers to the fact that about half the show is Steve Hackett solo material and the other half a straight continuation of the "Genesis revisited" concept with Nad Sylvan's convincing Peter Gabriel impersonation. Personally, I found the concept of the tour a bit confusing and separating the solo stuff from the Genesis stuff in this way only helped emphasise how different these are from each other.

The first half of the show draws material from two main sources: Steve's 1975 solo debut album, Voyage Of The Acolyte, and his latest studio release at the time, Wolflight, which explains the "from Acolyte to Wolflight" part in the name of the tour and in the subtitle of this live album. We also get here a few songs from other early solo albums like Please Don't Touch, Spectral Mornings, and Defector. Most of these songs, if not all of them, have been included on other live recent albums. As I remarked in my review of the Wolflight studio album, it sounds very much like Steve's previous albums going back at least to 2004's To Watch The Storms. It is not bad, but feels a bit like more of the same.

Turning now to the Genesis stuff, any fan of that band is bound to get interested in these selections. It is particularly nice to see that they have included a few "new" songs that were not performed on the previous couple of tours, including Get 'em Out By Friday and Can-Utility And The Coastliners from Foxtrot and The Cinema Show/Aisle Of Plenty from Selling England By The Pound. These are all excellently performed and will not disappoint anyone. Still, even with these excellent surprises I think that Steve has now come to the end of the road with the "Genesis revisited" concept. Continuing on with this beyond this point would be milking it.

The Total Experience is not a bad live album, but there are many others in Steve's extensive live catalogue that are much better than this one. (I should add that I am only familiar with the audio of this release and not the accompanying DVD. I did however see Steve live in Malmö, Sweden on this tour where the same set list was performed.)

Review by HarmonyDissonan

4 stars Hi. It's been a while and I admit that I'm not really prepared to do a review that will do this cd (album) justice, but if I wait much longer, it just won't happen like so many other - albums that I would have loved to review! So here goes and I apologize in advance for all that is lacking. I have to say that this cd was one of those that had reached the coveted 'hard to remove' potion from my cd player in my van! I've used that expression before, but that is where a large percentile of my listening is done. After many listens, I had found that I was still finding new bytes of audio taste sensations that made the listening experience a slightly 'new' flavor with each subsequent listen. I enjoyed the great variety on the album without that variety causing the album to lose any coherency or flow. I highly recommend this cd (album). I discovered it through PA and am glad that I did so. Most of my music purchases in the last decade or so were discovered that way. Although I can't quite give it the 5 star masterpiece rating, it is just about as close to reaching it as possible and I would definitely give it 4.5 stars if I were able.

Take care and enjoy God's gift of music!
