Wave Mechanics Union - Second Season

Well, this cd was a GREAT surprise! I had no idea there was something like this on the market, or I would've bought it long ago. I'm a big progressive rock fan. Perhaps not towards the arty direction, but the pop direction of Queen and Yes. Because do know you what's on here? It's

Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who
Killer Queen by Queen
The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin
The Great Gig in the Sky by Pink Floyd
Available Light by Rush
De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da by The Police
Eleanor Rigby by The Beatles
Why Should I Cry For You? by Sting
Elephant Talk by King Crimson
Istanbul Not Constantinople by Four Lads
Heart of the Sunrise by Yes

As you can tell, they've got a few of my favorite lads in there, blowing the lid off the conventions we associate with prog - which is the whole point of prog in the first place. Congrats for doing that! There are music people taking prog and its "rules" too seriously, and it's about time someone bent this steal into new playground material.
