My name is Rob. This website was intended to supplement the things that I post to the Facebook page which is always the primary source for everything I do. I am the host of Progressive Music Planet, a weekly radio show on Metal World Radio that highlights the best of progressive metal and progressive rock. Music ranges from the well known bands to the up and coming new bands. The show is Sundays at 10am Eastern Time, 3pm UK. It is replayed on Delicious Agony Progressive Rock Radio on Tuesdays at 8pm Eastern Time.
UPDATE: This site is going to continue. The number of reviews will be less but my intent is to just review releases that motivate me to write something about them, whether good or bad or otherwise. I had considered stopping reviews altogether and, while that may happen in the future, I think limiting myself has me more inclined to do reviews as warranted.
It is true that nusic reviews have made me listen to new music in a way that I do not look forward to. It’s a method of snap judgement that causes me to dread listening to new music. But rather than look at it as a job, I am looking at it as a chance to offer my take on something (if I wish to do so).
I am still not accepting independent submissions. Labels can submit albums to me as can PR reps. I would appreciate it if those reps consider the genres that I write about and not add me to lists that are unrelated and thus just waste my time.
That’s where I am now.
