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 ssmarcus — Here we have another wildly talented and fun Eastern Europe based heavy progressive rock/metal act with an inexcusably goofy name. On Sound Goat Project's debut record Deep Inside, the band pulls together an undeniably catchy track list with an abundance of genuinely endearing surprises. In order to not spoil these surprises […]
Review by kev rowland — To try and put together a potted history including all the details of what has happened to this band over the years is a task beyond me, but let's just say that since their inception back in 1972 they have been one of the most important progressive rock bands in […]
Review by kev rowland — Here we have the third in Perdomo's trilogy of instrumental albums, and although I have enjoyed some of his releases it is safe to say I was not a fan of the previous album in this series, so wasn't really sure quite what to expect with this one. When looking […]
Review by ChristianRO — After the first two albums which had poor audio quality, LogoS released the impressive 5-stars album "L' Enigma Della Vita" and now, after a 6 years rest, we have an epic return with another five-stars album "Sadako e le mille gru di carta".Being a big fan of Rock Progressivo Italiano (PFM […]
Review by Steve Conrad — Madness and AnarchyThere's Stately Beauty HereYes, it's undeniable. Some passages lead me straight to fantasy- an orchestra, ballet dancers, a vast stage. Stately chord progressions that grow and swell, then begin to subtly change key and direction, putting the listener on the alert- quiet anarchy.Electric Mud in Pulsating ManeuversThe name […]
Review by SouthSideoftheSky — 'Life forms between the lines' Yes surprised their fans last year when they released this mini-album featuring previously unreleased material. From a Page has four songs, all of which originate in 2010 when the line-up included Oliver Wakeman and Benoit David in addition to the core of Chris Squire, Steve Howe, […]
Review by TenYearsAfter — *FIRST REVIEW OF THIS ALBUM*Last year German electronic musician Robert Schroeder celebrated his 40th year in music, since his debut album entitled Harmonic Ascendant (on Klaus Schulze his famous IC label) from 1979. In 2019 the label Spheric Music also released his 40th album entitled Fata Morgana, in 40 years, incredible! […]
Review by lukretio — Thankfully, Katatonia's hiatus announced in 2018 did not last very long. In Autumn 2019 the band let fans know they were back in the studio to record a new album. Fast forward to April 2020 and the new album, City Burials, is out. So, how is it? Certainly not an easy […]
Review by lukretio — There are two short instrumentals on Hexvessel's fifth album Kindred that represent very well its sonic identity. The first instrumental, "Sic Luceat Lux", is a sparsely arranged affair built around a hypnotic drum figure and a dissonant, almost cacophonic 12-string guitar pattern, that wouldn't have been out of place on a […]
Review by lukretio — Discovering Green Carnation is one of the few good things that came out of my lockdown. Of course, I already knew of Green Carnation, a frontrunner of the Norwegian post-black metal scene that, together with bands like In the Woods, Ulver and Arcturus, in the late 1990s / early 2000s started […]
