Slowly but surely the new Threshold album "March Of Progress" takes shape. It will be the first album with singer Damian Wilson since "Extinct Instinct" (1997). Which brings us to the subject. In addition to his successes with Threshold, Ayreon, Star One or the very latest Maiden United, it is often forgotten that Wilson has also released several albums as a solo artist since 1997 (including "Cosmas", "Disciple" and "Let's Start A Commune"). With them, the Brit with the big voice is mainly in the singer-songwriter business (with occasional excursions to rock/pop regions), but his art is certainly not less touching in this context. On the contrary: Especially in the simplicity of the arrangements Wilson's voice captivates even more. With the double album "I Thought The World Was Listening 1997-2011" (with a fancy Digi-Flap Cover) Wilson perfectly summarizes his solo work so far and garnished the successful selection with unreleased songs and some newly recorded titles.
