Things are a little ‘off’ this week: I’ll be playing lots of new music this week, but there will be no theme.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure there’s no theme.
But you might be able to conjure up a theme… if you try hard enough.
Theme or not… be sure to take some time to relax, put on some headphones, and immerse yourself in some quality progressive rock. It may well be the best part of your day.
Because the days are still long:Remember, you can steam/download this, and any of the 113 previous editions of The Progressive Tracks Show broadcast on Progzilla Radio, any time you want at: http://www.progzilla.com/?s=progressive+tracks.

Review by TenYearsAfter — "Good news from Greece!"What a coincidence, I just finished my serie of reviews about the early King Crimson albums (the 40th Anniversary Edition), then I started to listen to this new Methexis CD, to me it sounds like the experimental side of, indeed, early King Crimson (1970-1975 era). This third Methexis […]
Review by astrophotographer — My first review and 5 stars? Absolutely, and no question. A recent convert to MA (puzzled as to howI've missed hearing till now) I've had this disc almost exclusively on my system maybe 2 dozentimes since it was sent out to me in NZ, the pleasure increasing with each play. .

Review by TCat — Humus is a band that has been around for quite a while, since 1987 in fact. It started out as a one-man project founded by Jorge Beltran from Mexico and has released several albums during that time. The music can be classified as Psychedelic/Space Rock, and, as far as I know, […]
Review by TCat — Cheeto's Magazine is a crossover prog band from Barcelona, Spain. The band typically puts on a colorful front in their shows with a bit of humor and cartoon-ish vibes. Originally, the band was a duo putting on shows with Esteban Navarro doing hijinx and vocals, keyboards and Manel Orella on guitar. […]

In 2018, he released an album "Out to Sea" which was quite well received by critics and fans. On that album, he had several tracks that paid homage to […]
Review by LearsFool — Disen Gage is a band that has never been afraid to try completely different things to make fine prog. I last listened to "Hybrid State", which was a spaced out take on the band's sound. This time, the group has focused on a particularly heavy sound that features various different sounds […]
Review by kayd_mon — Morse's solo output has been marked by a tendency to sound samey. The records often have highlights, and more than a few moments that make them worth a listen, but they often kind of blend together in your memory. Testimony, Sola Scriptura, and Similitude were all solid efforts.Enter the Great Adventure. […]
Review by jamesbaldwin — Also, like Kempokid and others, after receiving (with a private message) the request to review "ROZMAINSKY & MIKHAYLOV PROJECT - Adventures at the Babooinumfest 2017", published in last month, I received the request to review this album (Shalash, 2018) by the group keyboard player Dmitry Karavaev. And so, flattered, now I'm […]
