Psychedelic Progressive Rock

Progressive rock music has its roots in the mid 1960's psychedelic cultural phenomena. During that time the British Invasion and folk-rock bands began to expand the sonic possibilities of their music. These groups slowly started to abandon the concise verse-chorus-verse patterns of rock & roll, and moved towards fluid, free-form oriented song structures. Just as important was the incorporation of elements from Indian and Eastern music. Along them the principles of free-form jazz were included to the psychedelic sound, emphasising spontaneous emotions over calculated and estimated compositional constructions. Experimenting with new studio technology, electronically altering instruments and voices, was a part of this altered approach as well. Acid rock groups like THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and CREAM stand as descriptive and popular examples of the path from psychedelic sunshine pop towards a more aggressive and distinct rock expression, in particular showcased in their improvised live performances.

The boundary dividing the "Experimental" and "Progressive" classification is a thin and at times contested one for this era. The pioneering psychedelic progressive rock bands to be found at www.progarchives.com will in most cases be found in the Proto-Prog section of the site. Amongst these pioneering outfits are acts like THE BEATLES, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE AND VANILLA FUDGE. Artists such as PINK FLOYD will not be found there though, as their career extended well beyond these first, formative years.

Psychedelic progressive rock music may contain the elements previously described in varying combinations, but the artistic perspective of progressive rock is another factor. Some psychedelic rock bands stuck to the mid 1960's beat rock style in purist form, not partaking in the experimental development of the impressionistic possibilities of psychedelic rock music others spearheaded. The evolution of the psychedelic depth within a progressive context could be seen for instance in the 1960's recordings of ARCADIUM and BABY GRANDMOTHERS. One good example of early 70's Continental European progressive psychedelic rock is the album by AHORA MAZDA, and from Britain JADE WARRIOR's early efforts fuse psychedelic rock and ethnic music. Current artists exploring the vintage 60's/70's style and sound are acts like THE SPACIOUS MINDS and ACID MOTHER'S TEMPLE.

The entire Western pop culture scene was influenced by the psychedelic culture to some extent, including other prog genres such as Prog Folk. In Germany, artists influenced by the British psychedelic movement formed their own genre called KRAUTROCK. The pioneering early 70's bands in this genre represent the progressive acid rock sound of Germany, experimenting with long instrumental improvisations, emphasizing the use of psychedelic effects and weird electronic sounds. Some examples are artists like AMON DÜÜL, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, GÄA, NECRONOMICON and YATHA SIDHRA. The PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC style emerged from Krautrock. Some of the most influential artists of this genre, such as TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE, explored a distinct psychedelic musical style at first, which was influential for the development of the "space rock" sound:


Progressive Space Rock

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene also spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation.

Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. HAWKWIND's live album "Space Ritual" is said to be the ultimate space rock album due to the collaboration with sci-fi author Michael Moorcock. His lyrics are performed by a narrator and underlaid with synth elements. PINK FLOYD can be regarded as pioneers of spacey music during the band's early phase, as exemplified by certain tracks from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" or the stirring live performance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene" from "Ummagumma". GROBSCHNITT provides another fine example of classic space rock with their epic effort "Solar Music". Other bands explored the space rock sound for a limited time period only. GONG released groundbreaking albums in the genre at the start of their career, while British hard rock band UFO released the extraordinary album "Flying - One Hour Space Rock" as their sole contribution to the genre in 1971.

A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound. Swedish bands are known for a brisk exchange of musicians among each other. The "Strange Daze" festivals from 1997-2000 showcased the American space rock scene. Japan is an inexhaustible reservoir of artists exploring both psychedelic progressivce rock and progressive space rock. Representative examples of the style are bands such as ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE with their focus on long grooving improvisations, QUARKSPACE and OZRIC TENTACLES with their stronger emphasis on electronic elements and VESPERO and HIDRIA SPACEFOLK with their inclusion of ethnic-originating musical components. Other groups like ESCAPADE and THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS represent an avantgarde approach to the genre, whereas SUBARACHNOID SPACE and KINSKI are examples of artists that provide transitions to the post rock genre.


The boundaries of Psychedelic Progressive Rock connected with Stoner Rock and Acid Folk

The 1960's and 70's were a time of liberation, a time of rebellion against rigid rules and strict moral boundaries. In those "freedom of expression" days, an artist would typically herald their liberal attitudes as a mind-expanding trip on stage together with the audience in two ways. One was to realize audio/visually the visual and auditory hallucination as it was, and another was to play their repertoire spiritually and improvisationally under the trip. As for the latter approach, they devoted themselves solely to slow-to-mid tempo playing with low-tuned guitars in a heavy and expansive manner for playing steadily under this twilight condition. In the same time period, this approach to the musical trip was also taken on by some artists especially in the hard rock and heavy metal scene. This new style, drenched in heavy and downer psychedelia, was called "Stoner Rock". The name originates from the expression "stoned", referring to people in altered states of mind while under the influence of psychedelic substances. The Stoner Rock genre was universalized "as a strict musical style only" by the Industrial Grunge Rock genre that gained worldwide popularity in the early 1990s. The common denominator of all the artists mentioned is the representation of their personal cultural and political backgrounds, whilst playing slow-paced depressive songs with heavy guitars and echoic rumbling drums as the dominating features. Most of current outfits claiming to be the so-called Psychedelic Heavy Progressive Rock ones should be much influenced by the traditional Stoner or Grunge Rock as well as the early Psychedelic Progressive Rock. They can be considered as a borderline case between Psychedelic Progressive, Heavy Progressive, and Progressive Metal.

"Acid Folk" can be mentioned as another musical style with hallucinogenic approach. Psych Folk or Psychedelic Folk are other names for this genre, and is vaguely defined as a rock subgenre due to the mixture of folk rock and psychedelic rock. This is a style lacking in strict definitions, and it is contested whether or not the term was actually used at what is deemed the dawn of the genre. It's an undeniable fact that the Acid Folk scene gained some popularity by the efforts of artists in "The Folk Revivalism", but it's important to remember that there were two distinctly different approaches taken by those who helped shape the genre in the mid 1960's. Some folk singers approached a psychedelic rock structure as was popular at that time, while some psychedelic rock outfits tried to absorb and incorporate techniques and elements from folk rock. Both have great importance in the development of Acid Folk, and this may be the reason that strict definitions of the genre cannot be given. In view of the history, it's no exaggeration to claim that TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SYD BARRETT or THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND in UK rock scene seasoned the "traditional" Acid Folk with a more progressive spice. They, as eccentric or heretical rock outfits, accepted and incorporated Middle-Eastern and Oriental elements or instruments, and the result was the foundation for the current progressive Acid Folk movement. And in the Eastern parts of the world, different acid streams was provided by artists such as TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS or MAGICAL POWER MAKO who exerted a great influence on younger progressive bands. Their amazing achievements resides in the twilight zone between the Prog Folk and Psychedelic Prog subgenres.


A path that never ends

In addition of the styles described, psychedelic elements can be found in many other genres of progressive rock. The psychedelic cultural explosion had an immense influence on the western popular culture, and traces of it can still be heard also outside of progressive rock circles. The collective techno rave parties carry on the legacy of the audiovisual attack from the PINK FLOYD concerts in 1968, to cite one example. As the psychedelic movement was a large cultural phenomenon, it is difficult (and maybe unnecessary) to fence it to a clear category. Psychedelic progressive rock has been developing towards several different directions over time, and the task of classifying them as distinct genres and sub-genres is an ever ongoing process, often loaded with strong opinions. The psychedelic rock artists which are not considered as progressive in style are not listed in the databse of www.Progarchives.com. This in order to maintain the site's scope to be a progressive rock reference.

The aim of this description is to be a tool of reference for potential and existing fans of the genre, and we hope that this will aid those who read it to a better understanding of the genre as well as to enjoy and discuss the subject at hand both in the forums of the Progarchives website as well as in other places online and offline both.

Live Underslunky
Ozric Tentacles Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

5 stars If you've only heard the Ozrics' studio albums, you've only heard half the story. Having come up through the free festival scene, it was in live space rock jamming that they first refined their sound - those early cassette releases might have helped cement their reputation, but it was through gigging that they honed that material in the first place.

Live Underslunky captures them right at the height of their powers, capturing material taken from a couple of November dates on the tour for Strangeitude. With great sound, the set takes the listener on a space rock journey which is replete with the Ozrics' signature Gong-goes-reggae sound.

Fuzzed in Europe
Goat Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mortte

— First review of this album —
3 stars Year after their great third "Requem"-album Goat released already second live record. When "Live Ballroom Ritual" was recorded from one concert, this album songs are taken from Manchester, Gothenburg, Paris, London and Berlin on their 2016 tour. Their first live album was released right after "World Music", so material was only from it and some singles. In this LP songs from every album is included and two songs have released before as single. Together with "Double Date" these are only vinyl releases.

As their second album "Commune", "Fuzzed In Europe" starts with "Talk To God". It´s one of my favorites from them! This version is very same kind of as in "Commune" except doesn´t have that great reverb that is whole through the album. "Time For Fun" is originally only single piece. When studio version has drum machine, in this live version there are only natural rhythmic instruments and it makes this song much better! Very good groove in it! Also I like farfisa sounding organ in this. "I Sing In Silence" is a neat song, but not really best ones from "Requem", so I don´t quite understand why they chose it in this album. Version is very similar as the studio piece.

Some reason "Gathering Of Ancient Tribes" hasn´t got the power as it should have! Maybe it has taken from the very end of the tour and they were tired? Last two pieces were already in "Live Ball Room Ritual". "The Sun The Moon" is again only in single released piece. This live version is clearly recorded than in previous album, but also lacks little bit strength the original version has. "Run To Your Mama" is ten minutes long version. Intensity starts to rise in the middle of song, but it ends into only vocals as always. Maybe little bit too long version without enough interesting jamming.

Goat hasn´t succeeded to capture their gig magic and intensity neither of these live recordings. This album is better recorded than previous one, but to me it sounds like there are only direct microphones from the instruments and vocals and no mics taking the sound of the concert hall. All the way sound is very tame. To me it seems these songs have recorded straight from the board and not mixed much after that. Also I am wondering did they really choose the best versions from their tour. Hope we will have some day better Goat live album, but of course the best experience is to go to see them alive!

Dungen Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars The Swedish band here definitely taking a foray into a more upbeat, psychedelic pop-oriented direction. They've decided they're flower children. And they're successful! It works! This is really good!

1. "Vara snabb" (3:10) a poppy instrumental in which flute takes the central lead in place of a voice. Nice song. (9/10)

2. "Min enda vän" (3:15) more upbeat pop with claps and major scale key. Sensitive vocals and strings and flute contribute to this song's universal accessibility. Definitely a top three song. (9.25/10)

3. "Brallor" (3:15) following a kind late-1960s "dirty" psych-pop musical style similar to The Association or The Pretty Things, popular female vocalist Anna Järvinen matches up very well to Gustaf Ejstes. Another top three song. (9/10)

4. "Soda" (3:39) sensitive guitars, acoustic and electric, are matched with sensitive multi-track vocals. Reine gets some shine-time and the drum-and-strum supported chorus sections are awesome. Beautiful "Flower Child" song. A top three song for me. (9.5/10)

5. "Högdalstoppen" (4:44) an psych-jazzy instrumental to let Reine loose--in which the Inner Hendrix is set free. Even the support band sounds and feels like Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding. (8.5/10)

6. "Skit i allt" (2:59) back to pop--a melodic structure not as engaging to Americans because of the Swedish lyrics. (8.5/10)

7. "Barnen undrar" (3:21) a kind of hybrid of psychedelic fuzz guitar into a pop song. Oddly, it works: it's as if Reine's guitar and Ejstes' voice are having a conversation. (8.75/10)

8. "Blandband" (3:49) opens like a Vince Guaraldi Peanuts song with piano, jazz drums, and syncopated clapping creating the uptempo fabric of what will stay an instrumental song. Reine's reined in guitar joins in during the second or third "verse" and is very spacious and respectful in its contributions. Flute, clapping, and excellent drumming really carry the tune start to finish. (8.75/10)

9. "Nästa sommar" (3:20) acoustic guitar and congas are soon joined by Byrds-like picked electric guitar. The song takes a minute to gel, but then Gustaf's vocal sense and Pan-like flute play bring it together. (8.5/10)

10. "Marken låg stilla" (2:55) Paul McCartney-like piano chords open this before cymbal-heavy drums and bass join in to support Gustaf's vocal. Reine's heavy electric guitar joins in during the first chorus and then persists. Not sure Reine's and Gustaf's visions for this song/album are in sync here. (8/10)

Total Time: 34:27

Though Reine Fiske's guitar contributions are, in my opinion, not always the best fit for several of these songs, I think the band's crossover into a more pop-oriented realm of music is justified--they have the talent and skill to be successful there--especially in a world that is very much interested in a renaissance of hippy/flower child styles and dreams.

B/four stars; a nice addition to any prog lover's music collection--especially if you love the psych pop of the late 1970s.

Journey to the Centre of the Eye
Nektar Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by JohnProg

4 stars Excellent debut that integrates -quite skilfully in my opinion- the hard rock of the time, psychedelia, the spatial sounds that derive from it and the dynamics that would later become the standard of progressive rock. An album, moreover, that is thought of as a single piece, although with two differentiated parts: the first -the 'side A'-, which flows as a single song with several mostly instrumental sections; and the second - side B-, which gives the impression that the band composed several songs or 'themes', to later order all the material and create a single piece that is more varied and has a more hectic pace than the first: being the common denominator the acid, distorted and sharp sound of the guitar; but also the dreamy melodies and understated harmonies of the organ and mellotron.

Live in San Francisco '16
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Up to and including 2019 this band had released 15 studio albums but no live records. In 2020 they released eight live albums including the one I'm reviewing, then six more in 2021 and two so far in 2022. So some homework is required before buying their live stuff as these guys cross so many styles of music. I'm sure there's a live one that best suits you. "Live In San Francisco '16" is without question a record full of tracks I really like and the other one I want to track down is "Live In Adalaide '19" with those "Flying Microtonal Banana" tracks and the "Polygondwanaland" tunes. This one though was recorded live at The Independent" on May 25th to an approving crowd.

We get thirteen songs, five tracks from "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" and five tracks from "Nonagon Infinity" both top five albums from this band for me and a big reason why I love this double disc recording. The other three tracks on here include "Trapdoor" from "Paper Mache Dream Balloon" which fits that energetic style. On disc two we get two old favourites in "The River" from "Quarters!" and "Head On/ Pill" from "Float Along-Fill Your Lungs". I like that in between those two tracks they placed "Evil Death Roll" which connects the two discs as we only get those three songs on disc two while we have ten "on fire" tracks on disc one. The band must have been tired after this one.

Disc one ends with four straight "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" tracks all blending into one another. The other track from that record is between the opener "Robot Stop" and "Big Fig Wasp". After "People-Vultures" Stu says in a droll "What's goin' on?". "The River" to start disc two is a fan favourite, a jazzy affair but the biggest cheer is for the closer "Head On/Pill" when those opening guitar sounds fill the air. A 22 1/2 minute trip. Somehow "Cellophane" ends up in there. There's a couple of places where we get a lot of energy from the band like at 6 1/2 minutes then later at around 19 minutes.

This is a must for fans of "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" and Nonagon Infinity" and I like that this is from the one concert as we get that same vibe throughout.

Changes
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by WJA-K

4 stars Alright, another new King Gizz record this October. I'm a Gizzhead, I admit. I have least liked virtually everything they published since around 2014. 'Changes' is no different.

The record starts off with the longest track, called Change. It lives up to its name as the changes are abundant during the 13-minute track. All around a central theme. But the best of the track comes after it finishes. Because then will gradually find out that all the following tracks relate back to this one. 9/10

Hate Dancing has the same chord progression as Changes has but still sounds like an entirely different track. Very light and fun, but oh so well played. Just listen to how the bass and drums drive the track forward. 8.5/10

Astroturf is funky as heck and may be my favourite track of this album, continuing the chord progression. 9.5/10

No Body slows things down considerably. Naturally, with the same chord progression. Gotta love the drums, the base and the beautiful guitar solo. 8.5/10

Gondii has electronica in abunance. It's mesmerizing to understand all tracks are sharing the chord progression. Pleasant enough. 7.5/10

Exploding Suns is as laid back as can be. Great atmospheric track. 8/10

Short Change is a fun reprise of Change to end this album 8.5/10

For me, this is a 4-star album. It is great. It's bold. It is delicious.

Journey to the Centre of the Eye
Nektar Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Kabajohnny

5 stars I have to be honest, as of November 2022, this is my all-time favourite album. The debut album from Nektar, Journey to the Centre of the Eye.

My longstanding favourite was The Dark Side of The Moon. It always made me feel like I was floating in the stratosphere, away from the entire world. But Journey, literally blew me off to a different galaxy. I had never felt so immersed and in sync with a piece of music quite like this before hearing it for the first time a couple of months back. Whether it is the obsolutely top-notch production( super impressive if you consider the era and the band's resources at the time imo), the screaming reverb-and-delay-fuelled guitars, the powerful yet gentle vocals, the naive lyrics which I always find a way to relate to, or the superb work on the keys, I find the overall sound very full and dense, in the best possible way.

From the very first listen, from the very first seconds, I realized this wouldn't be just another prog album with an intresting album cover. It starts with a creepy intro, but doesn't take long in introducing the spacey atmosphere. The third track "Countenance" is forever engraved in my heart. One time I was so immersed into the music, my forehead and belly were actually went numb for a few seconds. I am not joking you. Then the album takes an instrumental and exprimental turn, which I admire for how abstract it is while still being a part of constructing the mood. Then, The Dream Nebula suddenly bursts on and sets the direction for the rest of the album. Following is an amazing second side with many twists and turns, gorgeous melodies and emotional vocals. Eventually after such a Journey(pun intended), it all ends where it started, with a beautiful reprise of 'Astronaut's Nightmare" 's main melody.

The entire record is very cohesive and trully serves as a 40 minute continuous piece. In general, I believe Nektar is a band that can offer a lot to any listener throughout its discography, I think there is something for everyone to really enjoy within it. I absolutely love 'A Tab in the Ocean' and 'Remember The Future', but 'Journey' has that extra touch for me. There are moments where my whole life flashes right in front of me. Where so many emotions are created by what I am hearing that I only listen to it every little while because that's how sacred it is to me. I believe it is at least worth a try, even if the space rock/krautrock combination doesn't sound like your cup of tea. I am forever grateful to Nektar and the entire team behind this album for their wonderful creation.

The Endless River
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by theCoagulater

3 stars This is probably the most split album in terms of what Pink Floyd fans think of it. Some people like it, some people dislike it, some people think it's amazing (they're probably fans of ambient music already or just love Wright), and then some people absolutely [%*!#]ing hate it (they either don't like ambient music as a whole or just hate whatever Pink Floyd does without Waters).

I'm in group A, this is a good album. Every song from the first three sides is great. They're nicely fleshed out, flow into each other perfectly, Gilmie's guitar solos are great; even though they're not this epic monolith surrounding an already beautiful song.

What gets me is how they ended it. This is supposed to be the cap on the entirety of Pink Floyd. The final release to undoubtedly one of the most influential bands ever. A band whose works is so close to so many people's hearts. And they chose to end this fifty year long career with Louder Than Words.

This song is atrocious, an affront to god himself, Richard Wright is rolling in his grave. They could've ended this album with Surfacing, didn't have to be anything special, just extend it a little bit, let it fade out over a couple minutes. That would've been perfect, a nice cap to Pink Floyd. If they wanted something big, something grandiose to close with they should've never released this album, leave it at The Division Bell. Maybe have this as a bonus disc to the fifty year super size ultra mega deluxe limited edition The Division Bell box set.

Louder Than Words already comes in hot with the worst lyrics to any Pink Floyd song, "We bitch and we fight, dis each other on sight." Gilmour was never a great lyricist to begin with, but a sixth grader could've done a better job. This is a joke coming from the same person who wrote Fat Old Sun. The auto-tune doesn't make it better, and than the background signers all together make this a painful experience. At least I can just skip it without causing too much damage to the experience of the rest of the album. But it still leaves an awful, sour, old man flavored taste in my mouth that turns me off from listening to an otherwise great album. Shame on you Gilmie

The Tale of Moon Hollow and Other Ghost Stories
Tyler Kamen Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Dapper~Blueberries

4 stars Well, it's that time of year when things become a little more festive, and a tad bit scarier. Halloween is just one of those holidays that you cannot help but love. It is a holiday that I think is on par with Christmas in terms of greatness. It is a holiday you gotta take into effect, and so it'd come as no surprise that there would be Halloween- themed albums that'd come out this time of year. Most of them have some horror theme, but for me, Halloween is more than just horror, scares, or spooky nonsense. Halloween is also a very cheesy time of year, with dumb spooky horror monsters all about. So I figured to reflect the goofiness by reviewing an equally goofy album, that being a concept album by solo multi-instrumentalist Tyler Kamen, The Tale of Moon Hollow, and Other Ghost Stories.

The album starts with a song that fits for an introduction to what we get into, and that is The Tale of Moon Hollow. It is meant to effectively introduce the listener to the vibes of what this album has to offer, and by doing so they create a very good opener. It sounds like a mix between Phideaux and Eloy, with some space rock influence mixed with more poppy instrumentation, giving the listener this haunting yet tranquil energy. Not only that but Tyler's singing is very good, not as good as say Peter Gabriel or Jon Anderson (I mean who is?) but Tyler is consistently good in his pitches so listening to him is very enjoyable. I love how this song starts and ends, because it is quick to the point but takes its time to establish itself in my mind. It is a very effective Halloween-themed prog song that I love.

Funny enough the rest of the album takes stabs from other rock genres, not just progressive rock, which makes sense because a lot of horror movies had soundtracks with songs with varying genres, which I honestly dig. Stone Man has this fun 80s hard rock sound to it, similar to that of AC/DC or KISS. Unlike those bands, I do not get any cringe from listening to this song because it evokes that 80s Halloween horror movie feeling. This would play in an opening scene where a guy and his girlfriend are driving while listening to this song on their tape machine, but then soon crash and get killed by the evil serial killer. It has that perfect balance of cheesiness and good music that I cannot help but see as a plus.

This whole Halloween theme carries on with the rest of the songs but in different ways, such as with Waning Gibbous. The organ work here is the most recognizable element, featuring this almost child-like innocence, almost like it's some soundtrack for a kid's trick-or-treating adventures. Not only that, but the drumming having this very polyrhythmic sound just adds to the privacy Tyler provides in the music, making this extremely effective seasonal song.

Honestly, this album seems to just be doing a lot of highs for me, especially within The Doppelganger. This song is so fun, having this very Spock's Beard style of retro progressive rock mixed in with the more juvenile hard rock sound from Stone Man makes this song one of my favorites off here. I love the guitar sounds here, they just have this very fun and rich energy that sets the bar a tiny bit higher for this album. I think this song is most enjoyable when you get pumped up for what the album has to offer, and this album does reward you for being in the Halloween spirit.

Things do stay consistently good within Crooked Staircase. It goes towards a more atmospheric progressive rock, taking some slight notes from Steven Wilson's music from say Blackfield, but tweaking it to be festive. I love the emphasis on the atmosphere here, having this fun yet still cryptic energy surrounding it. I guess if the album cover was a song, this is what it'd sound like. It is fun, bright, and colorful, but contains a lot of passages that may sound a bit more dead than usual. Not only that it is the longest song here, being nearly 5 minutes long, which is a little strange since this is a progressive rock album, but Prog is still Prog no matter the lengths.

I guess my point on length follows Piper's Comet, which so happens to be the shortest song, only 55 seconds long. It is the only song on here where I didn't like it, well not liking is a strong way of saying it, how about I go with not adding it to my playlist instead? It is a fairly fine folksy tune, but it is too short to grab my attention. I think that is the album's biggest flaw. I think this album would benefit from some longer songs or even a long length of music. To me, 34 minutes, while not a bad run time, seems a bit too short in my opinion, and I think if they made Piper's Comet 1 or 2 minutes long instead of a measly 55 seconds could make this already really good experience even better it could make this a masterpiece.

Though, if you wanted a spooky folk song that Piper's Comet teased you with, Carolina Shade may do the trick. It has a more acoustic feel, with an emphasis on the acoustic guitar, though it does transition from an acoustic to an electric guitar the more the song goes on, so not fully folk, but I guess you could call it something similar to that of the music Jethro Tull makes with a folk feel, but still incorporates harder rock signatures. Fret not though because this song is still really good, with a lot of great riffs and instrumentation that I am impressed with, since this is all created by one guy, kinda like Tame Impala, but unlike Tame Impala who makes very generic psychedelic rock music, Tyler knows his footing and tries to exceed past his limits by making different styles of music to make his sound be both varied, and progressive.

Same Old Song does also show a variety of moods Tyler can put out, not solely sticking to cheesy Halloween- themed progressive rock but instead allowing himself to create different varieties of rock music. This more rock and roll movement where people would bring out their lighters and wave them around really resonates with me for some reason. This song and Closer To The Heart by Rush are prime examples of that type of music, where the melody is slow but still has an optimistic step to it. I may be a progressive rock nerd but I cannot help but like a good candlelight melody.

I always have a favorite song from any album I review (even the poopy ones) and this goes for this one as well. It's gotta be The Haunting of Mildred Tuttle, with just this very beautiful space rock energy pouring out of every pour, but still keeping up with the creepy sounds and vibes from the songs prior. I cannot stress enough how good this song's atmospheric tensions are. How the song weaves around these ideas Tyler had when he made this album, and how it plays into the magic while also creating its own let this be one of my favorite songs to come from this album, if not the best song from here.

I also really like A Ghost in Bethlehem too. It is a little shorter, but it still really gets the job done. It reminds me a lot of the early Porcupine Tree, which I think is a great way to divide the two feelings for Halloween, the mystery and the cheesiness. This balance between the two sides is very greatly captured on this record.

The last song of Dime a Dozen with an 80s-styled hard rock song like Stone Man, and like Stone Man it does that style of music well without making me cringe. The album began with cheese and ended with cheese.

I love this album, while it may be a bit too short it is still consistently good. I highly advise listening to this for your Halloween night, because it is one of those albums in which the varying styles found here work to the album's benefit, creating something best reserved for those spooky seasons. A frighteningly cheesy album.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars "Gumboot Soup" was the last of five studio albums released in 2017 and they did it just under the wire for dramatic effect. This is like a compilation of b-sides and leftovers from the first four records released earlier that year. So yes this is all over the place as far as styles of music goes as we get the microtonal stuff, the light jazzy tunes and some heavier tracks. The fun part is guessing what albums these were originally meant for.

"Sketches Of Brunswick East" is my least favourite from that year, that lighter, jazzier sound like the opener "Beginner's Luck", "Barefoot Desert" or "The Last Oasis" all ones I could do without. Top three includes "Greenhouse Heat Death" which is a fairly heavy, seventies sounding piece with vocals. Maybe from "Flying Microtonal Banana". Just love this track. Same with "Muddy Water" also sounding like it's from the banana album and my second top three. Final top three is "The Great Chain Of Being" sounding like it's from "Murder Of The Universe" all the way. Heavy with those character vocals. I'm pretty happy with those three and there's some others I don't mind but this is a 3 star record in my world.
