Recorded in 1998 and featuring several big name players from the Prog-Rock scene - every Prog fan should have a copy of this album in their collection!

For those who don’t remember this 1998 epic that was a HUGE selling Prog title at CDS Towers back then, ‘Into the Electric Castle’ is a Double Concept Album (or ‘Space Opera’ as some would call it) that features practically every good element that the Prog genre has to offer, all encapsulated into 105 Minutes of pure Progressive heaven! It's all here: driving and singing electric guitars, delicate acoustics strumming, a vast array of soaring synthesizers, organs and Mellotrons, tight driving rhythms sections plus great vocal performances and narration work.
From ‘Lamb’ / ‘Trick Of The Tail’ period GENESIS through to YES' ‘Topographic Oceans’ time, JETHRO TULL's ‘Brick’ and ELOY's ‘Planets’ period right up to PINK FLOYD at their instrumental best and DREAM THEATER in full flight - you will find influences from them all on this epic double helping of Prog magic that features a star-studded line-up of guests from the UK and Holland: Fish (ex MARILLION), Clive Nolan (PENDRAGON), Ton Scherpenzeel & Edward Reekers (KAYAK) and Thijs Van Leer (FOCUS) are all included! It's pretentious, a bit over the top at times, but that is what great Prog is all about isn’t? - A must have album to have in your collection!
Back in the day we said of ‘Into The Electric Castle’ that it was certainly an album that every Prog fan should have in their collection. It IS one sensational work that has masses of great music on it, with something to offer anyone who was ever been into Prog/Space Rock! The whole work is well thought out and brilliantly put together with skilful production and playing of the highest calibre!
