Frost* – Falling Satellites (Full Album) – YouTube

 

Favorite track: “Heartstrings.”

Track most like the town music from a Square RPG: “Lantern”

Edit Many of the lyrics seem quite depressing.  Even though the music is fantastic, I am going to take this one off my playlist.  Ah, well.

Music of the Day

The self-titled debut album by Dutch band Spin:

The Internet calls this jazz/rock/funk, and I can’t find a more concise way to describe it.  My favorite track is “Little Bitch,” which has some very nice guitar work!

Music of the Day

“Infinite Fire” by Flying Colors.  I only learned about the band today, although it features some musicians I know and love from other bands (including Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy).  This track is a prog mini-epic, clocking in at only twelve minutes.  But I can summarize it in one word: Wow!

There are also lots of live versions on YouTube just waiting to pop up in your search results.

(By the way, why are so many prog musicians named “Morse”?)

Music of the Day

“Treason” by Gryphon, released in 1977.  I’ve just started the third consecutive play of this record, so I think it’s time to give it the recognition it deserves!  The opener, “Spring Song,” is fantastic.  “Flash in the Pantry” is light and enjoyable.  High-grade prog.

 

By the way, my thanks to the WordPress team for clearing out the outlook.com spam-followers that have been popping up over the last several months.  I appreciate it!
