I've had a lot of new music arrive in the past couple of weeks.
Kansas: The Absence of Presence Another solid album, plenty of good guitar moments from Rich Williams and Zack Rivsi.
Fish: Weltshmerz He claims this is his final album before retiring. While I was hoping for more guitar highlights, since John Mitchell (Frost*, Arena, Kino, Lonely Robot) was involved, it's just such a wonderfully made album that I can't really say it's lacking.
Circuline: Circulive-New View Great live album. Not just because I was at the show; but the presentation and recording of this live album is top notch. Andrew Colyer is a killer keyboard player; "new" guitarist Alek Darson is a nice addition, adding a bit of edge to their sound. He even gets a fretless guitar solo on one track.
