Some of my readers may know me by my real name – Raffaella Berry, formerly associated with two well-known progressive rock sites, but now happily launched on a ‘solo’ career as a reviewer of all kinds of progressive music, from classic prog to anything else that might fall under that umbrella.
Even though my approach to music is an impressionistic one (I am not a practicing musician, and never have been), I have always been an avid listener, and can claim to have a good knowledge of many musical genres. In the past few years I have made a reputation for myself as a fair- and open-minded reviewer – someone who will always show respect to musicians, no matter how much she might dislike an album.
Each and every one of my reviews is a labour of love, written after having carefully listened to the material, as well as having done extensive research on the artists involved. Therefore, I hope that anyone who reads my reviews will find them useful as a guide for their musical explorations, and that the artists about whose work I have written will see their vision reflected in my words.
