For Christians, today is the Feast of All Souls, a day dedicated to praying for those trapped in a purgatorial state, somewhere between this existence and the next.
Yesterday, I posted “Calling All Angels” for the Feast of All Saints.
Try as I might, however, I can’t for the life of me think of any prog songs directly related to purgatory? Am I missing some? The closest I can think of would be Glass Hammer’s album, PERILOUS. I don’t think Steve Babb, however, would see this album as purgatorial. Maybe Big Big Train’s THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE? Gazpacho’s NIGHT? Maybe LIGHTDARK by Nosound?
Maybe “Arriving Somewhere But Not Here” by Porcupine Tree comes the closest.
Or, possibly, Anathema’s “Dreaming Light”?
