For several months now, we've been publishing a review by Mike McLatchey every Thursday, our version of #TBT (Throwback Thursday). The albums covered have represented his "Top Tier" most favorite recordings of all time. Starting today, we're moving along to his "Second Tier": albums that are worthy of being remembered, but don't quite fit into the highest echelon. The distinction, he admits, is a fine one. "There's really not much more than an arbitrary difference from the first group in quality, all of these are classics."

Most other days, we present a review of something new, the latest releases by both well-known artists and obscure newcomers, but it's also valuable to pause and look back at some of the great works of the past.
Today starts out with the self-titled album from Gracious, and in future weeks, we'll see everything from Canterbury classics (Caravan, Hatfield and the North, and so on) to German gems (Embryo, Tangerine Dream, and more) to Italian wonders (Museo Rosenbach, PFM, etc.) to a variety of other categories (Crucis, Steve Tibbetts, Magma – you name it). And since this is McLatchey's list, there will be more Steve Roach.
