All songs written by Mars Hollow

Notes: (*****) Mars Hollow made a bit of a splash with prog fans with their debut album in 2010, produced by Ronan Chris Murphy. They turned to Billy Sherwood for this, their second album, and the relationship has continued, with, as I write, a forthcoming live show with Mars Hollow opening for CIRCA:. The band's sound has echoes of ELP (Beller and Chicoine were in an ELP tribute band previously), Yes and Rush, but they very much have their own style. (HP, 26 Nov 10)
