Album of the Day

England: Garden Shed. England was a second-generation prog band (from the UK, of course) that sprung up after and was influenced by the first wave of the early 1970s. As such, they can't help but be a little derivative of bands like Genesis and Yes, but still manage to do their own thing. I can't help but think that if this album came out in the 1980s, rather than late 70s, it would be written off as "derivative neo" rather than hyped as an underground classic. Regardless, it's a good disc.
