Gazing at a sea of stars: Astronomy to Ave Maris Stella

A long list, but chock full of good stuff.  Pink Floyd always seems to find their way into these lists, this time with like fifteen solid hours of music in two songs.  OK, maybe not fifteen, but close well over 40 minutes.

Starting with my first “hard rock”/prog rock love, Blue Öyster Cult, through Floyd and Marillion, and even hitting some Barry Manilow before finishing with This Ascension, who were a gothic/ethereal outfit from San Francisco who I was introduced to by the same person that got me hooked on BÖC.  1991’s Light and Shade is my favorite of their albums
