”The listener also hears something new or something different with every listen due to the multiple instruments and melodic layers”....

”I like how the band always leave breathing room for the listener to absorb and digest every album according to their individual personalities. The Samurai Of Prog also prove there is still a market for organic uncompressed traditional progressive rock.” - The Power of Prog

 

”The lyrics and storyline for this fantastic water–themed adventure are perfect and tell some magical tales. Buy this album and enjoy a journey into the way progressive music used to sound at the height of its popularity.”

- Professor Mark / The Progressive Aspect”

 

 

Lost and Found

On We Sail

Europe, USA, Canada, Japan, Australia - 16 euros

 

 

”All of the six tracks on this double album are of a very high level music wise. Therefore the highest rating of five stars a second time around is very well in place. This release is a must have for everybody who is into retro progressive rock. Highly recommended to those who like the music made by Rick Wakeman, Yes, Jethro Tull, Kansas, Supertramp, Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Steve Hackett and Yes back in the good old seventies.” - Henri Strik / Background magazine

 

”The second disc is composed of just one piece, the fifty-seven minute "The Demise". It is a breathtaking piece of music that fully captures what is/was so special about '70s progressive rock”… ”The Samurai Of Prog will appeal to fans of classic '70s progressive rock like King Crimson, Yes, Gentle Giant and the aforementioned ELP. Really, what's not to like? Lost And Found is quite simply a fantastic album that will be treasured by this reviewer for many years to come.”

- Jon Neudorf / Sea of Tranquility
