Album of the Day

Children, by Illuvatar (1995): When I first got back into prog, I bought almost everything I could find that was described as "sounds like mid-period Genesis." As a result, I ended up with a sort of neo-prog overload and turned off to the genre for a while. Children was one of the discs I got during that time. I was a little underwhelmed and filed it away. But recently, I've been listening to some of these things with new ears and really enjoying them. Children still isn't the best example of neo I can think of, but it's solid enough to merit repeated listenings.
