Marco the Lobster ,

Seminal neo-prog masterpiece

As a huge prog fan/collector I've heard about this album before but I've never gotten around to listening to it until recently I found it at a record store in VA and decided to buy it along with Clutching at Straws. Needless to say, for the past few days, I've been obsessed with it. If you love Genesis like I do, this album is like a mix of the sounds of Foxtrot, Lamb and Duke, with maybe some influences of The Who, U2 and Pink Floyd. It's like classic, 70s, suite-oriented prog rock interfused with modern-sounding synth rock. There's so many soaring, cathartic moments throughout this album, especially in songs like "Kayleigh", "Heart of Lothian" and "Childhood's End?". I definitely recommend this album for any prog fans looking to broaden their horizons past the 70s.
