pick-of-the-monthThe Jeff Green Project - Elder Creek album cover, as reviewed on The Phantom TollboothElder Creek is a great example of new-wave or crossover prog, and tells a story of memory.  A unique mix of symphonic prog, psychedelic rock, folk ballad, and classical mythology, this is an uplifting album with the power to entertain, encourage, and invigorate.

Profit feels more like a Ty Tabor solo record than on the first three projects.

neal morse grand experiment, pick of the monthThis is an album that demands a physical reaction (in my case: air guitar, air drums and random punching the sky) but it is also chock-full of a spiritual power and musical excellence. Virtually guaranteed a place in the 2015 best-ofs and surely a career best for Morse? In many places it's virtually perfect.
