Prog - A Beginning - Discovery Rd 3

In the 80s and 90s, prog fans got second wave prog, neo-prog, third wave prog...and whatever else you want to call it. Basically, guys who love the prog sound jamming on just like the day they first heard Trick of the Tail. Now that these bands have invested many years into the genre playing the music they love, they may even have a trick or two of their own to teach.
A Glorious Disturbance

"Syzygy is an American prog band that began under the name "Witsend" back in the 1980s. By this live album, their last major work before disbanding, most of these middle-aged dudes had been playing unapologetic retro prog for decades, and it shows in the best possible way. Tight harmonies, interesting keyboard sounds, shredding bass and guitar, complex drum rhythms, you know what you are going to get, you just my be surprised how good it is. Songs from their entire back catalog are more than replicated with grooving performances and pristine sound quality, and songs like "Coronation," a new song about the prodigal son story, prove they had the songwriting to be as well known as Spock's Beard or Echolyn." - Friday13th

Love Over Fear

"A neo-prog gem from one of the most underrated bands in the entire genre who’ve been at it for decades.
Is it a tad cheesy, a bit over produced and lacking a certain something? Yes but I’ll be buggered if it’s not one of the greatest albums of the last few years." - zakalwe
