Here are sets of Pictures to suit almost every personal art gallery. The newest issue (though not the most recently recorded—it has a 1979 analogue source) is the least memorable. The orchestral playing is excellent and certain portrayals are striking, the ”Ballet of Unhatched Chicks”, for instance and ”Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle”, while the closing sequence is strongly projected.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.
SHADOWFAX. Nice name for a progressive rock band. At least that's how they started off. Named after Gandalf's a horse in Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings. They are often classified as new age, but their first album really wasn't, it was rather quite like a more rocking version of OREGON and had a mixture of hard and soft songs. And really their latter albums weren't completely although they lost some of their harder edge and devoted themselves to more mellow fair.
Essential: a masterpiece of rock music.
History has not been as kind as it might, and arguably should, have been to Blood Sweat and Tears. In their day, they made some of the most exciting progressively influenced jazz rock ever. Their greatest asset was the wonderful voice of David Clayton- Thomas, but there was far more to the band than simply a voice and a brass section.
"I Want More" (is a fairly heavy album): Originally released in 1987 as a vinyl-only release, "I Want More" was the album that helped lead to a bidding war by the majors for DIRTY LOOKS. FnA Records makes this very rare vinyl-only release available to the fans for the first time on CD and adds TWO never-before-released bonus tracks - "Smell The Gasoline" and the very unlike DIRTY LOOKS tune "Narcissist".
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
More or less?
With the commercial pop side now eluding Floyd's attempts, French cineaste Shroeder's proposition to create the soundtrack for his first film must've fallen from the skies, a bit as Zeus' gift. This project is instrumental in Floyd's middle career, definitely turning its back from the pop single market. Some progheads have problems considering this album a real Floyd album (some even pointing the group did as well), mostly due to the OSF letters printed on the intriguing psychedelic artwork. But there are a lot of real gems on More, some are even classic Floyd songs. If some people are put off by this, the shorter song format and the word Soundtrack are the culprits. Do indulge as this is a real Floyd album, because it is quite instrumental and experimental and very representative of Floyd's then-actual soundscapes.
Britain has more billionaires per head than any other country on earth, yet we're also the most unequal nation in Europe. We were told the super-rich would make us richer too, so why hasn't that happened, and what does the arrival of their astronomical wealth really mean for the rest of us?
