Album of the Day

UK, by UK (1978): Word in the prog world is that drummer Bill Bruford, who shines on this album, is easing into retirement. Initially, it sounded like Bill was just stepping down from touring, but, apparently, he'll be out of the biz completely after a new album comes out later this year. That's a damn shame, but he's certainly earned it. Bill is like the Kevin Bacon of the prog world, with all kinds of bands and subgenres linking through him: Yes, King Crimson, National Health, Genesis, etc. Enjoy the golden years, Bill!
