But, I can’t allow this afternoon to pass without noticing one of the best new releases of the year, Days Between Stations’ latest, “In Extremis.” What can I write, but that this album is simply mind boggling. I played it for the first time only early yesterday morning, and I’ve listened to little else in two days. I’m sure I’m on my seventh or eighth listen.
This is prog. Psychadelic prog, but prog–unapologetic prog–to be sure. There are some hints of Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, early Spock’s Beard, Genesis, and The Doors within. Regardless, Days Between Stations is its own band.
To add to overall beauty of this album, Colin Moulding, Tony Levin, and Rick Wakeman contribute.
It is an absolute must own. A huge thank to Billy James of Glass Onyon for letting me know about this thing of beauty. And, long live the Eggshell Man.
