I think with this record we found the perfect mix of songs, dynamics and emotions... Dutch band Lesoir’s output is generally described as art-rock rather than prog, but it’s clear the genres cross at some point, and this might be it. Lesoir toured as Special Guests of the Polish band Riverside in the spring of..
Once again we see Spirit appearing under the roaming eye of Esoteric, with another in their rather wonderful series of deluxe reissues. This time it’s a slightly unexpected album getting the treatment, in the shape of Tent Of Miracles from 1990 – the band’s penultimate studio record. They were at what can only be described..

If you're a fan of bands such..

[The Fall Of America] kicks in immediately with a heavy, churning circular guitar riff driving the whole thing along like a juggernaut relentlessly crushing a picnic area. Okay, confession time here: I had no plans to review this album initially. Not out of sloth, but merely because I didn't think it would be for me...
