Holy Hand Grenades Batman! Check this out! THE THEANDER EXPRESSION. The latest Swedish mega project featuring Andrée Theander, plus a truckload of guests. If Sonic Station, Street Talk, Work Of Art and a handful of other acts are thrown into a pressure cooker, then this is probably the result. Can't wait for this!!

One of the most challenging and innovative rock genres of all time has to be 70's Italian Progressive Rock scene. One album that sticks out is this 1975 effort from Area, one of the more significant bands of the time.
There's been some glowing adulation for this album, with one reviewer actually praising Warwick for sounding identical to Lynott. To me it's the worst thing about the album. To try and capture elements of Thin Lizzy's vintage sound the band used Kevin Shirley as producer, but not even he could save this from being a dull excuse for a hard rock album.
Hailing on all frequencies from Arizona; the epicenter of metaphysical weirdness in particular a large amount of UFO sightings; Planet Blue was led by Joe Sofia who apparently had a reputation on the local Phoenix music scene as a bassist extraordinaire and a first-hand believer in extraterrestrials.'Planet Blue' (the album) is sort of a cross-pollination of 1980's Camel, The Moody Blues and sophisticated pop groups such as Tears For Fears and China Crisis.
Despite the turning of the years, John Taglieri still has the ability to create decent melodic pop/rock. In fact, he's sounding better than ever, and though this is only a 6 track EP, it caught my attention with ease.
Here's a great little independent release from New York band Station. You'll hear a myriad of influences. For me, Trixter, White Lion, Tyketto, plus Firehouse. All good references, and it's not hard to tell when you switch on their groovy four-track EP 'Wired'.
French rock history is littered with colourful, sometimes bizarre characters. At the forefront of the French prog movement were Ange. They took a more melodic and listenable approach to their 70's prog output, admittedly a touch bizarre at times, yet much of it is considered classic by serious prog aficionados.
