A very interesting album from another great Scandinavian band, this is a blend of good old Classic Genesis and heavy metal. The disc grows on you after several listens and the beautiful voice of Sylvia Erichsen is certainly worth listening to!

Roine Stolt of the Flower Kings is one of the most prolific songwriters out there. Here with his band The Tangent (with two others of the Flower Kings on board), he brings us five new pieces.
Progressive Rockers Happy The Man got back together to create a new album. With its sleek production, this CD takes the listener through various landscapes.
Three terrifically talented musicians (Glenn Snelwar, Michael Manring and Mark Zonder) team up to make this great album. It’s a treat right from the very first note!
Pinkeye d’Gekko are back with a new album which has less country influences than their previous effort and is, overall, a better disc.
Four very talented and very different guitarists indulge in playing their own compositions. They favour us with the best they have to offer in both composing and playing. The result is an incredible album with everything blending in together so perfectly.
A new solo effort from the Flower Kings’ keyboardist is always something to look forward to! Is it as good as Pinup Guru? A-J definitely thinks so, even though Sonic Boulevard shows us a side of Bodin that we’ve not seen before.
Trent Gardner’s Magellan are back with a new album. Impossible Figures is an album that marries different styles. One will find heavy keyboards, in the genre associated with Jean-Michell Jarre or Tangerine Dream, yet the overall sound quickly reminds one of Yes.
