The leap from 1970's „Benefit“ to the following year's „Aqualung“ is one of the most astonishing progressions in rock history. In the space of one album, Tull went from relatively unassuming electrified folk-rock to larger-than-life conceptual rock full of sophisticated compositions and complex, intellectual lyrical constructs. While the leap to full-blown prog-rock wouldn't be taken until a year later on „Thick As A Brick“, the degree to which Tull upped the ante here is remarkable. The lyrical concept–the hypocrisy of Christianity in England–is stronger than on most other '70s conceptual efforts, but it is ultimately the music that makes the album.

While never as high-minded or technically facile as the likes of Yes or ELP, Tull began incorporating complex time changes, sophisticated harmonic structures and highly developed lyrical themes on „Thick As A Brick“, the realization of the artistic growth begun on „Aqualung“. It's here that Tull finally bursts into full-blown prog-rock mode. While „Aqualung“ was a group of discrete compositions united by a theme, „Thick As A Brick“ consists of one extended piece that occupies the length of the album.

Money that can't be forged, that will appreciate rather than depreciate, and that can be used worldwide without transaction costs. It exists, and some people consider it to be the digital version of gold: bitcoin.

Huminoita is a music collective from Oulu, Finland. Basically they are playing psychedelic/space rock with a shot of post, stoner and jazz, the latter due to some saxophone attendance.
This album is yet another proof of the overlapping nature of genres. All is Two mixes rock, metal and even jazz and finds new musical dimensions with each layer. The band does not twiddle. Its music has always been about wide strokes - the drums, the bass and the electric guitars build momentum, and the wind instruments and the chanting vocals raise the songs to their eloquent zeniths.

This release, Images, is part of a twin set of the works of Ketil Bjornstad. The sister album, Shimmering, is being released simultaneously, and they will also be released as a double set. Both albums were recorded by Ketil Bjornstad himself, on the same piano, but two years apart in two different studios. Solo piano holds an important place in the compositional work of Bjornstad. His piano albums often morph into an improvised recital. Some parts of the album will have completely improvised segments, and some will have musical fragments that have a profound meaning for Bjornstad. Bjornstad describes “Images” as intimate. “I wanted to avoid many of the percussive elements that are always a part of my concerts. In that way, all of the remarkable overtones of this instrument became very powerful and prominent.”
