Michael Reilly Great & Terrible Potions showcases the integral elements of progressive rock: a grand and inventive scope; extensive and creatively varied instrumentation; epic guitar solos; and a unique voice (all definitions). This is exciting, quality prog from a songwriter in great form. Favorite track: No Specific Harm.

Dr. Beaf I'm tipping Ben's dad has a very similar collection of records as mine. Force fed Yes and Floyd on road trips until we loved it. He's done a smashing job. Best symphonic style prog-rock release since the 80's. Favorite track: No Specific Harm.

Craigory Bacon This is THE BEST Prog release in years. Ben brings the goods with tons of lush keys and strings, piercing and precise guitar lines (ala David Gilmour), and two great longer compositions. Favorite track: No Specific Harm.
