I love how they use their own tuning, B F# B G B E
Oh yes, love prog.
I really love 80s Prog Rock.
Can't get enough of it actually... some really great stuff pulled through.
Yes they were pop sounding, but that's the beauty of it. It was "fun" music, always puts a smile on my face. It isn't a guilty pleasure or anything because I can't get enough of this era.
I'm of the opinion that Power Windows had the best mixing of any album ever. The sound is so crisp and clear! And Marathon was a prog song, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
omagod, just discovered what may be the greatest "random" find ever.
The cover looked interesting and these were the sounds I got. :smug:
Robert Fripp has said there is no hope for a King Crimson reunion. So no more albums ever again. :smith:
Atleast we still have the classics!
At least we have a new Yes album in the works. :smug:
tool, isis, opeth.
Where the crap is Porcupine Tree? One the best and well known modern prog-bands?
Sound of Muzak
As a drummer, Gavin Harrison is also a huge inspiration to me(not forgetting Phil Collins and Bill Bruford).
Saw Porcupine live last years, was so cash. Funny thing is, Gavin Harrison played with King Crimson in 2008 or something, live.
Genesis - In the Cage(my favourite)
Too bad Phil can't drum anymore, since his back is fucked.
Just because Porcupine Tree isn't mentioned in the OP doesn't mean we don't like to talk about it :smug:
I guess within the last 3 years have they started getting popular so can't really value it's influence just yet.
I need to hear their earlier work.
Nothing like will ever happen :3:
has the dawn ever seen your eyes
I see. I have some more "oldie" bands for ya..
Funny that Emerson, lake and palmer is not mentioned? They are friggin' huge!
Fanfare for the common man
Karn Evil 9
Heres Colosseum, a great band from the 70's. Jazz/prog/rock with John Hiseman on drums(one of the reasons is started drumming).
Valentyne suite(from the 1994 re-union)
Rope Ladder to the moon(same)
Take me back to doomsday(Beat club)
Atomic Rooster(munchies vocalist)
A Spoonful of Bromide Helps The Pulse Rate Go Down
Also, if ya guys are feeling experimental, check out som Krautrock.
Neu! Fun tip: Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk played with them for a short while.
Have a good one!
Makes me want to go around and fuck everything up D:
Listening to Instrumedley (Dream Theater)
Never gets old
It wasn't just Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, ELP and King Crimson. I assure you
Well, you can't re-experience a memory, since its already a memory of yours and cannot be recreated without the knowledge of the original memory it is based on.
There is something about the way the lyrics and musics goes so well together in that song that makes it so perfect for me.
That ending is just beyond awesome
TehKaboose, you're supposed to use apostrophes, not acute accents.
