Temporal Analogues of Paradise is an album by bassist Jonas Hellborg, with guitarist Shawn Lane and drummer Jeff Sipe, released in 1996 through Day Eight Music; a remastered edition was reissued through Bardo Records in 2004. It was recorded live at different locations in Sweden, France and Germany[3] during the trio's extensive touring in 1995 and 1996.

Totally improvised, though still achieving a distinct musical dynamic and structure, the album marks a "headsplittingly magnificent" (Mac Randall, Musician Magazine) reference peak in rock/fusion history,[4] not only through astounding technical virtuosity, but especially through an exploring, emotional flow of ideas that the artists are able to communicate, individually and as a group.[5][6][7][8][9]

As acknowledged by the musicians themselves [10]"Temporal Analogues of Paradise" is probably the most representative recording of the group.
