THE PROGRESSIVE TRACKS SHOW #290 
(The State of New Music – 2018)

What is the state of the world as we reach the end of 2018?

Let’s just say it’s ‘fuzzy’.

But (attempting to remain in my ‘box’), I can definitely say that 2018 has been a ‘very very good’ year for Progressive Rock.  So much so, that there’s still a lot out there that we’ve just not been able to air.

So this week is an attempt to ‘catch up’ on some of the amazing music that has been released this year.
