Short album reviews by The Prog Yak. No puffery here, just a simple review and score from 1 to 5 yaks! Have a new album you'd like The Prog Yak to review? Let us know.
Emerging from North Carolina, the band Nospūn presents their debut masterpiece, "Opus". Undoubtedly, it ranks among the most formidable debut albums we've encountered lately. The production is impeccable, and the harmonious blend of melody and accessibility makes the tracks ideal for the Prog-Radio airwaves.
My initial impressions of "Opus" were reminiscent of the awe I felt when I first encountered Haken’s brilliant album, "The Mountain". Imagine the musical prowess of Dream Theater and Haken, sprinkled with the playful charm of Barenaked Ladies, and there you have the essence of Nospūn.

Nospūn is a name I anticipate we'll hear echoing in progressive rock circles. Here's hoping they continue to deliver more musical treasures.
