This was the first GE album I came in contact with back then. And it was quite a shock, I must say.
Some legendary tracks are featured here, and this album will be the showcase for their great live performances. From basic pop songs in their early days, the band has now evolved into a great hard- rock style tinted with special prog flavours (keys, flute, sax).

A perfectly well-crafted and eclectic album of art pop music - nowhere near as dull as most critics call it. The ingredients are simple, but thanks to a good sense of melody and arrangement the whole thing becomes really tasty after all.

This is a genuine oddity in the career output of Andrew Lloyd Webber, growing out of a personal/familial vignette. The piece, a set of variations on Niccolo Paganini’s “Caprice No. 24” (which had previously inspired adaptations by Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms, Sergei Rachmaninov, and Boris Blacher, among others…

Anyone’s Daughter bursts into the scene of German Symphonic-Progressive in the late 70s, with this powerful pressing.
There’s no denying the influence of Genesis, they manage to print their own stamp thanks to their effective vocalist.

This was the most controversial Tomita album, where he uses Holst's spectacular, mystical suite The Planets as a launching pad for what amounts to a simulated spaceship trip through the solar system.

The most perfect Jarre release for me, "Equinoxe" defines Jarre's classic sound extremely well, maybe even better than the previous "Oxygene" album.

This was the first album released by the band after the departure of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. Many wondered at the time if the remaining half, Gouldman/Stewart, could pull off a decent album or would it be a let down. When it came out I rushed out to buy it, hoping it would be pretty good.

A hugely successful album on its release, “How Dare You” spawned two monster hits “I’m Mandy Fly Me” and “Art for Art’s Sake”. I remember I hardly had this off the turntable at the time. Each song is a gem, there is no filler on this brilliant album.

Having played for the prog bands UK and Jethro Tull, Eddie Jobson decided after to start a solo career, and "Zinc" is his first album. Absolutely progressive, the tracks are often loaded and dynamic. Jobson even provides the lead vocals, which are really not bad. He plays some excellent electric violin parts, as always.

Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
This is the live record of the 2 UK's studio albums. The sound is only good. There are 2 new songs: "Night after night" and "As long as you want me here". The more accessible "Night after night" is not very complex, more diluted, so that it is a bit disappointing, although there is a very good organ solo.
