Big Big Train - Folklore (2016)

This weekend I am playing the new album of the UK-based band Big Big Train. Like the previous albums it is symphonic prog with a nod towards 70's Genesis without sounding derivative, with excellent compositions and a successful incorporation of symphonic instruments like strings and wind instruments into the band's sound.

Van der Graaf Generator - Do Not Disturb (2016)

 "Time to leave, close the door, time to let go..." are the last words on this latest release of Van der Graaf Generator. Will this really be their last album? Anyway, it has a good mix of melancholic, heavy, lyrical, jazzy and complex passages on it. A very enjoyable release throughout.

Opeth - Sorceress (2016)

With this album Opeth continues on the path that they have stepped onto starting with Heritage (2011). It mainly means that they left the death growls behind in favour of more 70's oriented prog rock. Like the two previous albums this album contains nods towards Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull.
I am playing the deluxe version of the album with bonus tracks.
