Normally I'd be worried about double-posting, but it's been two days... screw it.
Neal Morse - Testimony 2: Live In Los Angeles
While released simultaneously with Transatlantic's "More Never Is Enough", this 3CD/2DVD set is more evocative of Transatlantic's prior "Live In London" album - a well-produced work that spans the near-entirety of Morse's solo career, and a live performance that, "VH1 Storytellers"-esque interludes aside, sounds a lot like a studio album in terms of musical quality. Recommended both for fans of Neal Morse and for those getting into his particular breed of Christian symphonic prog for the first time.
Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. - The Ripper At The Heaven's Gates Of Dark
AMT's second album of 2011 proves to be yet another gem, further sharpening their droning, fuzzy psychedelia with the help of additional Japanese folk influence on their sound as well as a fair bit of nods to 70s hard rock and psych (especially the very Led Zeppelin-influenced "Chinese Flying Saucer"). For those expecting the more "classic" Acid Mothers Temple sound, the nineteen-minute "Electric Death Mantra" serves up a ton of squealing synths, jazz-derived percussion, and Kawabata Makoto simply going apes*** on the guitar. Alongside the release earlier this year of "Pink Lady Lemonade - You're From Inner Space", The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. have likely put out two of their best albums in their deep discography... and back to back, no less.
EDIT: "Pink Lady Lemonade - You're From Inner Space" is from Acid Mothers Temple & The Cosmic Inferno... so it's two straight solid AMT releases, just not both from the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. (although the only difference in personnel between the two at present is the bassist).
