NewEARS Album Of The Month"The Tangent has evolved into a platform of experimentation. And why not? Andy Tillison has been making high quality progressive rock for a long time, so it is good to explore new possibilities. Under the label of Eclectic Prog, Proxy does experiment with different genres of music. For example, the 16 minute "The Adulthood Lie" fuses Fatboy Slim type of electronic funk with classic The Tangent in a way that is brilliant. It will mesmerize, intrigue, excite, and venture through many twists and turns. The majority of Proxy is classic symphonic progressive rock with Andy's spin on the world as he tells stories of politics, music, and life. "Supper's Off" is a classic b-side from Le Sacre Du Travail that features Andy's electrifying keyboards and can fit nicely on any Tangent album and deserves it's place in the sun. From start to finish, Proxy does a lot of things right, and fits nicely in a high quality catalog of music. jvj-PA"
The Tangent - Proxy
"Just over a year after the release of the wonderful album The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery comes the band's 10th. The musicianship on the album is of the highest standard and the overall packaged album is, for me, by some way the best of the year . Brilliant 5 stars." CJG-PA
Essential Track: " My favourite is The Adulthood Lie, at over 16 minutes, it is a fast- paced monster (you will also see it released as a single) that delighted me from first listen." CJG-PA

The follow-up to 2016's critically acclaimed 'THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM', which critics hailed as "a masterpiece," will be the ninth studio album with Morse, Portnoy and George, and the third as a true collaboration with this current lineup. Together, Morse and Portnoy have launched four bands, but the one that has endured the longest and thus with the most musical output has been THE NEAL MORSE BAND.
"Let the great adventure now begin…" The closing line of 'THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM', has proved to be strangely prophetic. The new album is exactly that: a perfect companion piece to 'THE SIMILITUDE OF A DREAM's partial retelling of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. It has everything that fans would expect from an album by THE NEAL MORSE BAND, and more: rock, metal, classical and jazz elements appear throughout, as well as some killer melodies, all played faultlessly by some of the greatest rock musicians on the planet.
