Quality & Originality:Albion is the next step for the amazing band Ten with a powerful prog hard rock epic album. Gary Hughes produced, wrote and arranged this beautifully written album. Albion was Mixed and mastered by Dennis Ward. I love how the songs were written and the meaning behind them. I think Gary did such a amazing job really getting his point across that Ten is and always will be at the front of the prog rock genre.


My Opinion:Albion is a great follow up to the bands Heresy And Creed from 2012. They have always pushed themselves to not just be another prog band but to be at the front setting the standards for all other bands to follow. This album is no different with great playing from all parties involved. So many of the songs off this album are almost instant prog rock anthems that have such a positive and bold presence to them that so many people can easily connect with!!


Overall & Favorites:Alone In The Dark Tonight, Albion Born, Die For Me. I give this album a solid 8.5/10 cause Ten really brings back how prog rock should be done with Albion brilliance!!!!!
