  6. Ghosts (2016 Limited Expanded Editon)
    by Frequency Drift
    Mermaid (2016 Limited Edition Remaster) Mermaid (2016 Limited Edition Remaster)
    This album, originally published in 2011, is a solid neo-prog work with the combination of melodic guitar interweaving with solid keyboards. The female vocals also add a nice touch. What makes this album particularly interesting, is the addition of Nerissa Schwarz's harp, which really adds broadens and enriches the sound of this band.
  7. The Durutti Columns
    by Jean d'Auberlaque
    Universal Love Universal Love
    This album is fun. It's more retro than "neo" anything. It's sound feels 60s, but updated with riffs and gimmicks from bands all the way up to the 90s. There's a kind of subtle humor here: a sort of homage to retro for later bands that were already doing retro. It's that very conscious awareness, which makes this album shine.

    Conglomeration (or: The Grand Pathetic Suite) Conglomeration (or: The Grand Pathetic Suite)
    Prog rock, humor, and strange twisting of the riffs of yesteryear? Now combine this with lyrics that have a sense a humor, and you have the Shamblemaths. Even without the two Ph.D.'s Simen Ellingsen's is a solid composer. Great critiques of old rock idioms for those to hear and yet listenable. I suspect that bassist Eirik Husum is the one who keeps this music close to earth.
  10. String Quartet Live!
    by Kishi Bashi
    This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)
    Okay, his sound tend to the pop and not a clean fit in my collection! So what! I just think he creates a great sound with string quartet, which creates a great melodic and rhythmic interplay. Then, the timbre of Mike Savino's banjo is great too. Finally, the Kishi Bashi's lyrics are both smart and phonically sensitive. Pop music that sounds smart- you can't beat it!

    En Desped En Desped
    A solid neo-prog rock work. The use of Breton adds a bit of interesting poetic interest to the sound.
  12. Discontinuance
    by Ghost Medicine (GA)
    Desert Spring Desert Spring
    Fine American neo-prog, but it's the gentle touches of American Southern Music throughout gives it interesting nuances. Good sound and good musicianship!
  13. No More Time
    by Darrel Treece-Birch
    No More Time No More Time
    Darrel Treece-Birch's keyboards tend to play a powerful role in the bands he is in. In a sense it reminds me of the work of Geoff Downes throughout Asia. The keyboard guides a lot the melody and musicianship without dominating the other musicians. Unlike Downes, Treece-Birch is not afraid of the prog-rock epic.

    This album i Treece-Birch's ability use the keyboard to play with a variety of lyrical, introspective moods, but it remains firmly in prog rock territory.

    The guitar work that Matt Stevens is capable of is truly artistic. His use of loops is creative too. He is able to create one of those "guitar quartet" sounds single-handedly.

    Hydraulic Fracas Hydraulic Fracas
    This album is a syncretic stew. The focus of the album is on the interacting timbres. For the most part, the role of melody in this music takes a back seat to the harmonic and timbral tensions that arise from stirring together jazz-style drumming, China-influenced instrumentation, solid electric guitar. and spicing it with a wide variety of instrumental timbres that are kind of like a five-spice flavor of sound.

    Belka i Strelka Belka i Strelka
    A band with lead ukulele? It really does work. Alesya Izlesa's rhythmic plucked sound is an (oxymoronically) varying ostinato that stabilizes Yegor Svysokikhgor's more free-form effects-focused guitar. There's something vaguely reminiscent of the improvisation of King Crimson's "Red" era here. No matter what, the band takes you into orbit like spacedogs Belka and Strelka, and brings you back again. It's a hypnotic album and I keep coming back to it again and again!

    by Nemo
    Loin des yeux (Barbares parties XIII à XII) Loin des yeux (Barbares parties XIII à XII)
    Nemo is a band that can survive and thrive on multiple replays. Nemo's neo prog rock sound that maintains a solid balance between lead guitar, keyboard, varied timbre effects in a symphonic format. And though I don't understand more than random bits of the French,the vocals are strong and the beauty of language only adds to the music. I don't think there is a weak song on the album.

    Though their next album, Transfiction is a bit stronger, this album is clean relatively simple neo-prog . What makes it interesting is Julia Graf's vocals. They're not virtuoso but she conveys a sense of emotional sincerity.

  33. In Vaults
    by District 97
    Snow Country Snow Country
    What makes this band so interesting is they have a a sound that catches that tense musicianship of the post-Crimson band, UK. Like UK, District's 97 talented musicians play off each other with a style edging on jazz. But Leslie Hunt's mastery of her voice- clean, controlled and clear- allows the band to explore a wider sonic, jazz-like territory than UK ever could. Yet, band is tight enough to not walk off the map: their sound remains solid, well-controlled rock.

    Luo Mu + The Youngster Fishing For The Stars (live) Luo Mu + The Youngster Fishing For The Stars (live)
    The sound of the Electric Guqin with rock band support great sound. Oddly, there is a nostalgia in their sound too. It reminds me of Brian Eno's work around the time of "Another Green World".
