- Live At The Orpheum by King Crimson: One word: MORE. This 2014 single CD, live recording of Robert Fripp's latest incarnation of King Crimson consists of 7 tracks one of which is the band's "walk on" music. I'd love to hear more, to hear an entire concert's worth.
- The Repercussions of Angelic Behavior by Trey Gunn, Bill Rieflin, and Robert Fripp: Think of it as another fine example of a King Crimson ProjeKct. Sample on YouTube.
- Heaven & Earth by ProjeKct X (aka Adrian Belew, Robert Fripp, Trey Gunn, Pat Mastelotto): Rare. Worth it. Another KC ProjeKct that is kinda like the orphan of the ConstruKction of Light recording sessions. Sample on YouTube.
- Octane Twisted by Porcupine Tree: It took this great live recording to get me over my hump with PTree despite the fact that I'm a fan of Steven Wilson's solo work.
- Hand. Cannot. Erase. by Steven Wilson. Nice follow-on to 2013's The Raven That Refused to Sing. Some very nice keyboard work on here by Adam Holzman.
- So (25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) by Peter Gabriel: I've been a fan of Gabriel since his Genesis days, have several of his solo CDs, and have seen him live 3 or 4 times. Why it took me this long to get this album can't be explained. Great versions of Family Snapshot, Intruder, and Family and the Fishing Net.
- Avonmore by Bryan Ferry: Nice, but no Avalon.
- Totem by Tuner (aka Markus Reuter and Pat Mastelotto): Good clean fun. Samples at iapetus.
