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 kev rowland — Here we have a two-track digital single from one of the best new prog bands around, Kaprekar's Constant, with all proceeds going to the charity Crisis. While the title cut is a new song, the second 'Call It A Memory' was their debut single back in 2017. Their mix of […]
Review by admireArt — Steve Roach has acquired through the years a personal way of electronic music expression, which somehow more than once is relegated for the more known and far more popular Berlin School related electronic music language as in his Bloom Ascension (2019).As for me I do prefer the evolution of his own […]
Review by TCat — Zone Six, founded in Germany in 1997, has been made up of a variation of lineups through the years. They have also played and collaborated with members of Hawkwind. Their music is considered Space Rock, which it is, but it also borrows quite extensively from Krautrock styles, which produces a nice, […]
Review by guiservidoni — I've been listening to Terraformer for a couple of months religiously every week, trying to come up with a consistent reason why my inner snob tells me this is a five-star album. This is my attempt of explaining it.This album has been received by critics as a great album, albeit overly […]
Review by Matti — The first album Aquarius (2017) by Glorious Wolf -- the moniker of the Dutch multi-instrumentalist (primarily guitarist) Ruud Dielen -- was all instrumental, but this second release features vocals and lyrics of Oscar Anema on most of the nine tracks. I haven't listened to Aquarius. For those of you who have, […]
Review by maani — IQ and Marillion arguably "started" neo-prog (with their near-simultaneous 1983 releases, Script for a Jester's Tear and Tales from the Lush Attic, respectively). And they continue to be its standard-bearers, and most consistently creative, innovative and virtuoso bands. And although I don't agree with many of my colleagues here that Resistance […]
Review by Glissede — Searching for new releases, I've come across this work. Although the style is kind of neoprog, other influences of groups such as Pink Floyd or Genesis are intuited. It seems clear that its main objective revolves around thematic ideas (both musical and lyrical) that excite listeners who likes subtleties without paid […]
Review by Pulpreality — Hungarian prog band Solaris are back with their 5th studio album. What we have here is transcendant musicianship with all instruments working very well with eachother and having their time to shine. Their music is still filled with the beautiful melodies and occasional latin vocals (maybe a bit more this time […]
Review by TCat — The Jazz/Rock fusion band "Djabe" takes its name from the Akan people of Ghana's language. The word means "freedom". This band plays a mix of jazz and Hungarian/African music. They have worked with Steve Hackett on previous collaborations, including the album "Back to Sardinia" which was released in December of 2019. […]
Review by memowakeman — Review originally posted in www.therocktologist.com Almost ten years have passed since I discovered Alcest, a band I loved since the very first minute, a band I've followed closely through those years. It was love at first sight. And now, I am here to celebrate the release of 'Spiritual Instinct', their sixth […]
