|3||Thinking Plague||Lycanthrope||In This Life||1989||Recommended Records (ReR)|
"Perhaps the finest attempt so far by an American
band to add to the pantheon of classic Rock-In-Opposition records, although
there have been several other notable entries. Mike Johnson's compositions
are astonishing and -- the clincher -- beautiful, and Suzanne Lewis' vocals
are both eerily enigmatic and ten times more accessible than Dagmar
Krause's. Fred Frith guests on one track, by the way." - Matt Martens (New Sonic Architecture).

|4||Ozone Quartet||Dragonfly||Fresh Blood||1997||Flat Five Records|
"The band formerly known as Cloud Nine have really matured, just in time for their first
CD. This line-up of violin, guitar, Chapman Stick, and drums produces intense instrumental
rock and fusion that will certainly appeal to fans of Boud Deun, not to mention King
Crimson and The Mahavishnu Orchestra." - Kinesis.
|5||Discipline||Crutches||Unfolded Like Staircase||1997||Strung Out|
" One of the "must have" titles in this catalog. After a long
delay Discipline return with their second album. Far more
developed than "Push & Profit" both in terms of musicianship
and composition. The band is led by Matthew Parmenter who
plays keyboards, violin, and sax. His singing is a bit from
the tormented artist school - a cross between Peter Gabriel
and Peter Hammill. Dark passionate music evokes early
Genesis and VDGG but also has a modern sensibility without
sounding "neo". This 65 minute disc consists of four very
long tracks loaded with Mellotron, organ, synth, and fiery
guitar. Definitely in the running for best progressive rock
album of 1997." - Ken Golden (Laser's Edge).
