Steven Wilson: Home Invasion: In Concert at the Royal Albert Hall

Read "Home Invasion: In Concert at the Royal Albert Hall" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

One component of progressive rock composer/vocalist/guitarist/ Steve Wilson's widespread appeal pertains to his rather boyish charm and heartfelt vocal delivery. A strong composer and supreme melody-maker, the artist seduces the audience with the notions of living and breathing the experiences and implications of a song's lyrics. And he helped pave the way for post progressive rock ...

If rockers are usually supposed to slow down and lose their edge as they get older, Steven Wilson obviously missed the memo. He's a little way behind the departing or retiring rock royalty of the '70s (not that they've all become ...

Adam Holzman: Truth Decay

Read "Truth Decay" reviewed by John Kelman

Truly a musician's musician, Adam Holzman's career, visibility-wise, has waxed and waned over the keyboardist's thirty-year career, but he's never been less than busy.

Certainly, based on his work with jazz artists including ...

Steven Wilson: To the Bone
