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 TCat — Doctor Nerve is a project from guitarist and composer Nick Didkovsky who originally formed a large group of instrumentalists to perform his quirky compositions. The band itself has been around since the 80s. The music has been described as a hybrid of jazz, metal, avant-prog, but especially as a combination of […]
Review by TCat — Coming from Bergamo, Italy, the Heavy Prog band Marsyas has released their debut album in January of 2020 after being together since 2014. The quintet of Francesco Luzzana (bass, backing vocals), Marco Adibati (guitar), Omar Ghezzi (drums), and Paolo Salvi (keyboards, synths) have taken the sounds of heavy prog perfected by […]
Review by Steve Conrad — It's All RelativeCreative People Must CreateThere are things I simply can't understand. For example, that star. People with much bigger brains than me tell me it may not actually be there any more.It may be long dead.Staring into the enormous void, that star looks real. It exists. It appears to […]
Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother — By this point, the idea of a female folk singer writing songs about nature is virtually a clich', but it's hardly surprising that it would take an intelligent artist like Tirill Mohn to actually deliver something truly thought-provoking and significant with the concept. A member of Norwegian symphonic group White Willow […]
Review by siLLy puPPy — TRICOT has been around for a decade now and one of Japan's best examples of all girl math rock.Coming from Kyoto this adrenalized girl's club that is known for its intricate rhythms and janglydissonance returns in 2020 with its fourth album 真っ黒 Makkuro which translate into English asblack as if […]
Review by Dirkteur — The (likewise called) Third album of FC is their best until now. I got interested from their debut on, because of the known names of the musicians. I heard their music performed in an almost perfected way, but that's not what makes the shiver in my spine - no other than […]
Review by Deadwing — Pendragon's latest effort is a big departure from their previous later albums, being their mostexperimental release since Pure (2008). Love Over Fear brings back lots of the colorful sound fromtheir classic Symphonic Rock releases, but at the same time presents lots of new ideas and palettes,while still being indistinguishable Pendragon. This […]
Review by javajeff — This is another excellent release by Rick Miller. I am new to his music, and have been taking in many of the albums at the same time. Belief in the Machine is up there with his best releases like Heart Of Darkness, Dark Dreams, and Immortal Remains. Majority of his music […]
Review by siLLy puPPy — While the Brits may have created both progressive rock and heavy metal with King Crimson and BlackSabbath taking rock into two distinct yet completely different directions an amazing 50 years ago,it was the USA where the idea to link these two styles together really took off with bands likeWatchtower and […]
Review by Drmick1971 — Birds of Passage is Antony Kalugin's follow up to Échoes from within Dragon Island'.With returning musicians from the previous album, Alexandr Pavlov (Bassoon), Maria Baranovska (Violin) and Elena Kushiy (Flute) and the welcome return of guitarist Mathieu Spaeter from Magicians Theater. I believe Viktor Syrotin's drumming is articulate, I think this […]
