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.

They have released a live CD, recorded in Toronto on November 20th, 2015. With Mel Collins, Tony Levin, Jakko Jakszyk, Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin and Pat Mastelotto. Today I am playing CD 1, next week CD 2.

King Crimson - Red (1974)

I am back from my holidays, but unfortunately I could not make it on my usual time at Starport Omega. Nevertheless, I can stream today on Floating Islands at 3pm SLT.
I am spinning King Crimson's Red. This album is the last album of the '70ies' King Crimson before they disbanded and reformed in 1980, and many hailed it also as their best. It is also my favourite.
