This week Prog-Watch and The Progressive Aspect begin a three-part “prog-stravaganza” looking at the best albums of the past ten years! Ten of TPA’s reviewers have selected their three favorite albums, and I will be presenting their short reviews and playing tracks from those albums over the course of three programs!
With contributions from Rob Fisher, Basil Francis, Andrew Halley, Magnus Moar, Bob Mulvey, Jez Rowden, Graham Thomas, Roger Trenwith, Leo Trimming, and John Wenlock-Smith!
649: Prog-Watch and TPA Present the Best of 2010 – 2019, Pt. 1
This week’s Prog-Watch is our semi-annual collaboration with some of the merry reviewers at The Progressive Aspect, bringing you some of the best Prog Rock releases this year! We’ll hear short reviews and sample music from ten of the best albums of 2017, as suggested by Mel Allen, Tony Colvill, Shawn Dudley, Rob Fisher, Jez Rowden, Roger Trenwith, and Leo Trimming. I’ll also pick a favorite of my own, and run down the whole list of albums which were nominated, but not represented on the show. (We do only have 90 minutes, and more than 30 albums were suggested!) So join me this week for a year-end round-up of some of the best new music released this year in our favorite genre!
