Mountains Come Out Of The Sky from the Author: Will Romano. (Book). From its artful beginnings (Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, the Mothers of Invention, and those progressive forebearers, the Sgt. Pepper-era Beatles), through the towering guitar solos, monumental synthesizer banks, and mind-boggling special effects of the Golden Age of Prog (Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes, ELP, Genesis, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, UK), through the radio-friendly "pop era" (Asia, the Phil Collins-led Genesis, and a reformed Yes), and right up to the present state of the art (Marillion, Spock's Beard, and Mars Volta), this is a wickedly incisive tour of rock music at its most spectacular. This is indeed the book prog rock fans have been waiting for, the only one of its kind, as fantastic as the subjects it covers.

from the Author: Susan Cain. Кілька століть нам нав’язували ідеальний образ людини — комунікабельної, харизматичної, енергійної, — мовляв, саме ці риси — запорука успіху. Тому й не дивно, що більшість переступила через себе, намагаючись відповідати цьому взірцеві. Сьюзен Кейн вважає, що час скинути маски, і на численних прикладах з політики, бізнесу, освіти, громадського та культурного життя розповідає, у чому криється потенціал тихих людей. Кейн сама інтроверт, тому щиро ділиться порадами, як здобути успіх на роботі і в особистому житті, при цьому залишаючись самим собою.

Close To The Edge from the Author: Will Romano. (Book). The first half of the 1970s was an especially fertile period for British progressive rock, laying claim to classics such as Tarkus , Selling England by the Pound , Larks' Tongues in Aspic , The Dark Side of the Moon , and Thick as a Brick . Collectively these and other works represent the best British progressive rock had to offer. Yet, it's Yes's 1972 three-track masterpiece, Close to the Edge , that presents a snapshot of an adventurous rock band at the peak of its powers, daring to push itself musically, both as individuals and as a unit. In this absorbing chronicle, which draws upon dozens of original and archived interviews and features rare photographs and an extensive discography, acclaimed music journalist Will Romano examines why Close to the Edge is the ultimate prog rock album. Yes had previously penned epic tracks for The Yes Album and Fragile , but nothing on the magnitude of the musical gems appearing on Close to the Edge . It's something of a small miracle perhaps even magic that the virtuoso quintet crafted such a cohesive and compelling album during an often-hectic recording process that very nearly relegated this monumental work to the dustbin of history. So potent was the power of Close to the Edge that even before its release it had forever shifted the personal dynamics of the group and the course of progressive rock. Rarely had Yes, or any rock outfit for that matter, been simultaneously so expansive and concise, spiritual and savage, profound and nebulous.

Sky Cloud Mountain from the Author: David Anirman. Let history drop behind as we explore the sacred confines of a temple city built by a race that was here long before us; before our species was even a glimmer in the cosmic eye, and whose work is still evident, usable, and heuristic. Dominated by a mountain, sculpted as a pregnant women, with a lion at her feet and a rearing serpent behind, the site is still alive with eddies of spiritual energy. Between the colossal lady and lion is a saddle in the mountain beautified by mazes of stone, sparkling sand terraces, and the gardens of windswept splendor with the rock everywhere seeming to be incised with aesthetic, undecipherable hieroglyphics. The site is beautiful, bolstering, and enlivened; geometrically tuned to the cosmos, whose forces it appropriates to utilize in various ways. Join in as we uncover a few of the marvels of an authentically magical place with a psychedelic consciousness adapted to tuning into the ancient mysteries; giving a new dynamism to the on-going story if a truly sacred mountain.
