Japanese band Green Milk From The Planet Orange unveiled an original form of prog-rock on the EP The Shape of Rock to Come (2001), containing the 19-minute cosmic psychedelic chant In The Space Far Away From This Planet and the 14-minute Switch On, and on Birth of the Neo Trip (2002), containing the 16-minute When Every Color Turns Black (whose atmospheric acid-raga-jazz fusion turns into a more conventional hard-rock tornado) and the 26-minute Ground Lyrics. He's Crying "Look" (Beta-Lactam Ring, 2004) reprises When Every Colour Turns Black and adds the 19-minute U-Boat.

City Calls Revolution (Beta-Lactam Ring, 2005) contains the 20-minute Concrete City Breakdown, whose first movement invents a melodic form of Terry Riley's minimalism and whose last movement is a hysterical gallop and a hard-rocking jam a` la Fushitsusha is sandwiched in between, 38-minute A Day In The Planet Orange, whose litany turns into one of their most savage jams, plus the seven-minute OMGS and the eight-minute Demagog.

The mini-album You Take me to the World (2007) contains the 24-minute Away

After a long hiatus, the band released Third (Inferior Planet, 2019). The 20-minute Abraxus exhibits the usual alternating of guitar-driven thunderstorms and quiet sections (alas, sometimes with singing). nine-minute Stardust At its best, the 13-minute Phoenix is a virulent noise-rock song a` la Jesus Lizard, but at its worst it indulges in sterile, slow, interplay. The problem with this genre of music is that there is little that one can add to an already gigantic canon of prog-rock and psych-rock music without sounding dejavu or even obsolete.
