Holon‘s The Time Is Always Now is a bit of a misnomer. Rather than focusing on the hypermodern in progressive rock, it’s a tour of the genre from its formative years onwards. There’s some art-rock jamming, there’s some late ‘80s panpipe noodling, there’s some grainy, pop-focused rock. It’s an impressive undertaking, easily clocking in at over an hour and featuring some of the densest musical styles around. Certainly not for the faint of heart, holon’s newest should satisfy prog fans of all stripes.
