Not Prog, but Pipers At The Gates Of Dawn really assfucks everything else Pink Floyd has ever done.
>>113758409Not even the best Syd album
>>113758425what he said is at least less retarded than if he called Piper at the Gates of Dawn prog
>>113758451>syd is barely on it
>>113758409Based and true>>113758451Syd was hardly involved in this one though
what the fuck was his problem?
>>113758470>>113758472Have it your way. If it's Syd you're after, The Madcap Laughs is better than Piper
>>113758470>>113758472Yeah Syd's limited appearance on the album is what makes it vastly superior to Piper
>>113758511the second half of his album not being as good as the title track

What is ELP's most kino live performance? For me it's thishttps://youtu.be/IOMx60ZxFxE
>>113759189>being good at your instruments is... LE BADcritics panning prog rock and embracing punk was the downfall of music. Prog was the next logical step after stuff like The Beatles.
I keep on getting filtered by Ruins.
After Crying https://youtu.be/7hJCnNBn31U
>>113761692Don't hear people bring it up much, but the live recording for the Mar y Sol Pop Festival has the best renditions of Tarkus and the Pictures suite I've heard:>Tarkushttps://files.catbox.moe/4dxjrx.flac>Pictureshttps://files.catbox.moe/oy2uj1.flac
>>113762444Have you tried out Sax Ruins and Ruins Alone?They're more accessible than most other Ruins stuff but they're gimmicky.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ca-jWQqWRZ8https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE7ai7LTj4U
>>113762524First link is nice but the second link goes completely over my head.
>>113759120The lack of self-awareness required for someone to label autism as an antithesis to soul is something else. Especially someone coming from this neck of the woods. Like, just because ELP's details and style were a cultural dead-end doesn't mean it has to be illegitimate or fake - it can just be a lot of effort that doesn't appeal to your at all for reasonable reasons.It's the same kind of inability to comprehend things you do not personally enjoy behind people writing of all of prog as "pretentious" as a genre.
>>113759189Cuckgau got cucked by everything after the 70s and deserves to rot in hell for helping popularize bitesized tweeting formats
>>113762444Do you like Koenji Hyakkei, Korekyojinn or zeuhl in general? Tatsuya Yoshida's music overall is definitely close to the most advanced end of the music spectrum, so there's no shame in not getting it
>>113758798The first time I heard Jeremy Bender I assumed by "bender" it meant drunk and that Lake was just trying to complete a rhyme when he called him a nun. So to me the song was about some king of the coomer getting it on with his family, like threatening to fist (punch) his actual sister for not being loyal to him. But after trying to get it on with a guy he mistook for a girl, that was the moment he decided enough was enough and he left for a more moral life.Given Benny the Bouncer and Karn Evil 9's lyrics, that didn't even seem off until I found out otherwise several years later.
>>113762595This is the age of narcissism, anon. If you don't like something or even don't understand it, the new meta is to call it "pretentious" so you can instantly feel intellectually, aesthetically and morally superior without any real effort or justification. It happened to the great bebop negroes of the 1930s, and it will keep on happening whenever a music genre makes someone feel insecure. That's just how most people are these days.
>>113762649He didn't get cucked by Punk, that's precisely what helped set him as a seeming "voice" of rock as a holistic scene.I do wonder if he really through Red was an A- , or if he felt like King Crimson had too much cred to freely shit on for critic-peen.
>>113761370God I fucking love Magma so much, bros. We need to have a fucking zeuhl general at this rate.
What are the greatest live prog albums of all time? So many of the best jazz albums are live in concert and I'm starting to think it low-key may be the same for prog.
>>113762665I like Koenji Hyakkei's first album and latest album. Angherr Shisspa is too schizophrenic for me.
>>113762712It is generally consensus that live prog albums showcase the best versions of a song, though it varies from band-to-band much like Jazz.For example, the live albums of King Crimson or ELP compared to studio are night-and-day due to their improvisational nature, while with bands like Genesis or Camel the difference is smaller as they tended to play "like the album" so to speak. Most bands are somewhere in-between.I've been listening to King Crimson's "The Great Deceiver Box Set (Live 1973-74)" lately, would highly recommend:>Exileshttps://files.catbox.moe/800lhg.flac
>>113762689>or if he felt like King Crimson had too much cred to freely shit on for critic-peenI think this is the case. He gave ITCOTCK a D- , but gave ITWOP a C+ and Larks’ in Tongues Aspic a B-. Which is funny because LITA is even more experimental and less accessible than their first two albums.
>>113762880>He gave ITCOTCK a D-What gets me about that is that he justifies it with:>The plus is because Peter Townshend likes it. This can also be said of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Beware the forthcoming hype--this is ersatz shit. Ersatz implies it's some inferior alternative to another offering. What in the flying fuck is it supposed to be an alternative to, whatever rock he likes?
>>113763051I guess was implying that early prog was a cheap imitation of rock music. But that still doesn’t explain why he rated ITWOP higher because it follows the same format as their debut. Cuckgau is just a pseud and a faggot leftist who wants rock to be the music of the underdog.
>>113763051Imbecile supreme this bastard
>>113762795Doesn't sound that much like jazz if the night and day difference only applies to two bands
>>113763157...what made you assume that was an exhaustive listing? Literally just off the top of my head since you asked. For a few more:Jethro Tull songs live is almost always superior. Rush has pretty good live albums IMHO. Yessongs and Yesshows are great, others I've listened to seem less stand-out to their album versions.Kansas is about the same live and album.Hawkwind is amazing live depending on the lineup.With Alan Parsons Project there's little difference at all, and the mastering of the studio albums makes me go with them every time.Anyway that did get me looking at more KC examples for listening, currently playing this live version of King Crimson's Discipline and it blows the album version out of the water:>Indisciplinehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnGD8RI0kGQ
>>113763157Oh wait, do you mean that most jazz-* bands are a day-and-night difference by default?Going by that metric, I'd agree that Jazz presents an even greater realm for freestyle exploration than Rock as a rule of thumb. Bill Bruford has commented similarly:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v3TI-Hd_QR8
why is it so overlooked?
>>113763274I don't know but cold wind to Valhalla is my favorite Jethro Tull tune
>>113763274Just didn't bring much new to the table in terms of what hadn't already been done, ergo little hype or rent in people's heads.Same deal with dozens of other prog albums.
>>113763263I don't know what you mean by -*. Nearly all jazz musicians play better versions of their material live with very few exceptions, whether we're talking post-bop or fusion stuff, and was just hoping the same might've been true for most of prog as well. I'm not even that much of a live purist but I know tons of Monk, Webster and Powell nerds who barely even acknowledge the existence of their studio output when making their "best albums" lists.
For me, it's Atomic Rooster
>>113762444>>113762665Ruins always felt like prog rock if it was played by cavemen to me
>>113763689Great description kek, i'm willing to bet the vocals have a lot to do with that
>>113758597Everything Syd worked on was kino
>>113763610DEATH. WALKS. BEHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
>>113763419Yeah I just added the asterisk as a wild card for generality, did not want to assume on particular subgenre.I think we are in agreement.
does /prog/ like progressive pop? :)
>>113764718i like klaatu but i think hope is there best album and the remake they made of the first album is better than the original.
>>113760269Fanfare from that album/show has got to be one of my favorite tracks by them. There used to be the whole thing on jewtube but I can't find it. Thankfully I saved the whole one when I could. https://files.catbox.moe/j8p9yu.mp4
>>113759344Very based for turning XTC's songs in a full blown concept album>>113764718Is XTC prog pop? Lately, I got obsessed with them. It's a lot like a pop version of Gentle Giant with a bit of Captain Beefheart's eccentric flavours and The Beach Boy's musicality. In my dictionary, they're as prog as it can get, especially the studio years. I stated learning some of their songs on guitar and what goes on there, as far as harmony goes, is truly amazing. The instrumentation is quite diverse. Dave Gregory actually played with Big Big Train and he's a solid instrumentalist, offering XTC a very strong musical backbone.
What's the best live improv jams from mid-late 90's King Crimson? I don't see that era or material mentioned enough nor get as much praise as it should
https://www.remaininlight.net/Going to see this, noticed there are still those "VIP" tickets. Normally I ignore special seating in concerts beyond location, but price isn't a big issue for me so curious:Do you ya'll have any good question for Adrian Belew that he hasn't been asked a bajillion times? I might be willing to shoot up for VIP if it peaks my interest.Also going to the The Factory in STL for this one, if anyone would like to join just put on a trip and reach out. Usually go solo but if it would move the meter for anyone I'm down with that.
>>113766404*piquesCan't say I feel sorry about that typo
>>113762509>>113762514Mar Y Sol is fantastic as well as the Milan 1973 show. You can find the Milan one on guitars101
>>113760269I always disliked the 90s rerelease of this show because it cut Pirates and Karn Evil 9 which were both on the original setlist. The Montreal show also didn't include Tarkus unlike almost every other show from the tour. In my opinion the Madison Square Garden show from 7-7-1977 is a lot better.
Did any rock band master ballads like King Crimson did during the Wetton era?
>>113766525Pretty much ELP's bread and butter innit?
>>113762712A few of my favorites:Dream Theater - Live Scenes from New York (also Budokan, Score, and Luna Park)ELP - Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never EndsGenesis - Seconds OutYes - YessongsKing Crimson - The Great Deceiver (you honestly can't go wrong with any live King Crimson albums)Anything that has Ritchie Blackmore on it will also be amazing live, like Made in Japan and Rainbow On Stage
>>113766567i should have said this but none of ritchie blackmore's bands were actually prog, he was just an incredible guitarist and deep purple and rainbow live featured amazing shredding and improv
I want to nakadashi the Foxtrot fox
Does /prog/ like The Mars Volta?
>>113766686This but the Gabriel in red dress version

Are any of the Yes albums released this century worth checking out? I listened to Fly From Here when it first came out and thought it was boring.
>>113763996Bought an original copy of this album three weeks ago, shit blasts
>>113766567I really wish Seconds Out had better guitar tone and it wasn't mixed way down. It just sounds so thin and weak most of the time, especially compared to stuff from the same period like the In Concert 1976 DVD. Still love the album but it kills some of the songs on it for me.
>>113768566I agree, Tony Banks joked that they mixed Steve out of the album because he left the band during the mixing process. My other complaint is the fact that the only Wind and Wuthering song on the live literally recorded on the album's tour is Afterglow. I would've loved to have One for the Vine or the Unquiet Slumber/In That Quiet Earth represented on the album. If you're into bootlegs, I'd recommend the Zurich 1977 show. It's got everything on Seconds Out plus One for the Vine, Inside and Out, In That Quiet Earth, and Eleventh Earl of Mar. It's an incredible soundboard recording. This site https://www.genesis-movement.org/ has literally thousands of genesis boots
>>113767905not really no. i've heard some good things about magnification from 2004(?) which was their last album with jon anderson. anything with the current lineup is pretty much not worth listening to, live or studio
>>113766525dream theater had a ton of great ballads. another day, hollow years, the spirit carries on, disappear...
>>113766686She's about to get boned by Winston Churchill dressed in drag... Oh no...
thought i'd ask here, anyone have the king crimson spurdo? (it might've been a j*jo edit, sorry if that's the case)
What did we think of The Ruby Cord
I don't visit /mu/ much, let alone /prog/- but I thought I would stop by and ask a question.Did Dream Theater's Systematic Chaos album ever come with any extra tracks, or maybe a special edition with a bonus CD, or any sort of leak online?Long story short, I was in highschool at the time that album came out, and I was introducing my friend to Dream Theater. He downloaded that album from somewhere a few days, or maybe weeks before it was released and gave me a copy on a cd. It had all the songs on the album, but there also were a few extras on there. If I recall, they were (mostly) all instrumental- and I thought they were maybe backing tracks? But I noticed later they were more than just backing tracks for the album. They had some of the most interesting guitar and keyboard riffs I had heard to that date.So much so that they have stuck with me all these years and I can hear it in my head clear as & I'm trying to tab some of it out... but it drives me absolutely mad. I have searched for everything I can think of, but the tracks were all named by numbers and had to other data with them & the CD is long gone sadly..Does anyone out there remember too? Am I insane?
>>113769905I know that the next album, Black Clouds and Silver Linings, featured 2 bonus discs. One had a few covers of songs the band liked and the other was instrumental versions of the songs.
Yes is the greatest white funk band

Recently listened to Incantations by Mike Oldfield. Not sure if it counts as prog or not, but its fantastic nonetheless.

>>113772615interesting take to say the least lol
should /prog/ have a discord or a group chat of some sort to listen to prog records as a group?
>>113772951>discordAlmost stopped reading, but this is a half-decent idea if a Cytube was set up. There'd just need to be a set time for it, so it doesn't turn out a spontaneous dead zone. I'd say weekly, two albums.Thoughts?
>>113772984sounds pretty good to me. I only said discord because most people already have one and it would be the easiest to get people to join but the platform doesnt really matter.
>>113772984That would be nice, it can be featured it in the general op with dates and times.
>>113769679I don't have that, but I do have this, please accept it.

>>113758380autechre not looking too hot these days
>>113773639solid chuckle m8
The Power and the Glory by Gentle Giant has to be my absolute favorite. Love the dissonant sound of that album. The album art is also fantastic.
>>113773843free hand is my fav :D
>>113772615This but with the first two reversed
>>113771267I personally like the albums that came before it more, but it's a really good album as well, it does get a bit too repetitive for my taste unfortunately>>113772984That actually sounds like a really good idea, I'd be down for that
>>113771267it's underrated. should be considered a classic along with his first 3.>>113775155>it does get a bit too repetitivethe only thing i personally can't stand that 8 minute repetitive wailing at the end of track 2
>>113773843Thoughts on Octopus?
>>113773876my favorite genre
>>113773876Add the first Family album and Arzachel
>>113776073Nta, but octopus is incredible.
>>113776073MY NAME IS PANURGE AND I'VE COME FROM HELL
>>113776073good but not as good as in a glass house and power & glory
picrel could have been great but it is fucking compressed shit. they need to remix this album like they did with Vapor Trails.
>>113780319No the Vapor Trails remix sucks ass
Tempus Fugit goes so fucking hard
>>113780769The original sucks more ass.
>>113780319what if steven wilson did the remix
>>113782162The original mix, though over-compressed, serves an artistic purpose of making the album as loud, muscular and in-your-face as possible. The remix over-corrects in the complete opposite direction to the point that it sounds impotent and sterile, like the recent Tool album but somehow even worse.
What if Kevin Ayers stayed with Soft Machine? Would they have been just as good?
>>113773843Hopefully it won’t disappoint me, but I’m on a gentle giant binge and I haven’t been disappointed yet
>>113784360Volume 2 wouldn't exist if he had stayed, so I'm glad he left desu.
>>113784541I mean, I feel like it would've been a combination of Joy of a Toy and Volume 2 had he stayed
>>113767158Yes, we’re a Bedlam or bust board though. Theodorefags need not reply.
>>113784360What I want to know is just how differently things would have played out if Daevid Allen's visa hadn't expired.
>>113784834Their'd be more guitars on the debut album I'd imagine
>>113763263thanks for sharing that link, great post anon
>>113758380Which era, genesis boy?Spoiler it's [spoiler]Pete Gab[/spoiler]
>>113785272Damn, didn't expect Kansas to be this good! Guess they lost it around 1979?
>>113758380We had a good thing Waltuh
>>113784360I seem to be in the minority in preferring their avant-prog/jazz-fusion work, so I wouldn't say so.
>>113785724They lost it when they lost Wyatt and gained Karl Jenkins
>>113785739True, Third and Fourth are their apex
>>113772984.be/r/progSetting it up, how's 6 P.M, every Sunday sound? Could move it to Saturday to account for people needing to go to work the next day. Right now only moderators (me) can do anything besides chat. I'll take album suggestions and emote suggestions. Two albums a day seems pretty reasonable.
>>113785840Won't let me type the full link, but for newfriends add a cytu. to the start of the link.
>>113785840kino. We need a tarkus emote
>>113773843I can listen to all of this album happily except So SincereIdk why but that track really gets on my nerves, even tho I like most their music a lot
>>113786518Based Peter Green fag
>>113785082No prob man, have a good one
>>113785840will it start this sunday or next sunday and what time zone are you?
>>113787744This Sunday. Meant to specify EST. Should be specified in the Cytube link.
>>113784340This but Chris Squire
>>113780780this but the entire album
>>113776073Octopus is also one of my favorite prog albums, along with Acquiring the Taste and Three Friends. I don't think there's an album that I don't like from them.
>>113784368I personally like all of their discography, there's not a single album that I don't like.
Yes (Fragile, Close to the edge)King Crimson (ITCOTCK)Pink Floyd and Genesis memesWhat else am I missing out on?
>>113776073ALL INALL EACHMAN
>>113789351the moody blues (they started all this shit)
>>113789351That's basically the 'Intro to Prog: Starter Kit"
>>113789275>>113789298Even Giant for a Day? I haven’t listened to that album yet (just finished octopus), but a lot of people hated that record
>>113789410To me, Giant For a Day doesn't capture the essence of Gentle Giant. That album IMO sounds "linear" in a sense, it almost sounds like Yacht Rock or Classical Rock. I still like the album, but is definitely my least favorite.
>>113789351King Crimson - RedGenesis - Nursery Cryme (idk if that's considered a "meme" Genesis album)Jethro Tull - Thick As A BrickGentle Giant - s/tRobert Wyatt - Rock Bottom
>>113789406Yeah basically. but I just want to expand to the next circle of classics beyond the start kit before approaching more obscure ones>>113789392thanks, would you start with days of future passed?
>>113789603thank you, I have listened to Nursery Cryme and I remember not liking it as much as selling england, but it's been years for this one so who knows. also some of those other albums from the bands I know I like like Red I've been holding ontoWould probably try gentle giant first, idk why it sounds intriguing to me
>>113789717>Would probably try gentle giant firstExcellent choice. They're one of several prog bands that were underplayed back in their heyday and are only now blowing up thanks to the internet
>>113789627Here's a flowchart. My personal favorite is In Search of the Lost Chord, but Days of Future Passed is where the day begins
>>113789603What’s “s/t” for gentle giant?
>>113789797I assume it's self titled (Gentle Giant - Gentle Giant)
>>113789797"s/t" is short for self-titled, meaning when a band releases an album which is simultaneously the band name and the album name. Gentle Giant's first album was simply called Gentle Giant.
>>113789822>>113789823>/prog/ actually helps the newfriend instead of being elitistguys why didn't you tell me it was opposite day
>>113789939/prog/ has always been helpful. It mainly turns into shit when people have autistic screeching matches over what is or isn’t prog. And I’m not new and I was familiar with their self titled album; I just didn’t know what “s/t” meant. I was fatigued and not really thinking at my best lol
>>1137899394chan has to be contrarian to the rest of the world in every way. So prog nerds here can be helpful and friendly instead of elitistic douchebags.
>>113767836I'm glad I'm not the only one.
Lyrics? Don't want 'em. Don't need 'em.
>>113789939prog fans are like jazz fans, by far the least snobby people on the board despite incessant whining and seething to the contrary. we don't care about meaningless culture war nonsense and actually just discuss the only thing that matters: the music
>>113792519True, just take a look at the absolute state of /metal/, they barely even talk about musicGhastly
>>113789351Can’t forget about tarkus and Karn Evil 9
>>113792387Lyrics? Yeah, sure, only the last song and make it political
>>113789939Because you cannot be a coper if you like progressive rock, i.e. you don't gravitate towards music that offers you patches for what you hate about yourself.Think about it: what genres have the most elitism, and the most aesthetic or subcultural signifiers? What types of people gravitate towards them? If you have a sense for understanding people you'll get it
>>113794042henry cow is just communist magma
>>113794230At first I thought you were talking about the rampant materialism inherent to pop, hip hop and indie but I think you're throwing shade at metalheads lul
>>113794416Magma doesn't have "words" or "lyrics" per se, though
>inb4 another autistic argument about the importance of lyrics
>>113789351King Crimson - Discipline is one of the best albums of the 80sAnd please check out Van der Graaf Generator, seriously some great stuffRush and Phish are a bit proggy, would rec their earlier music>>113789939Not sure how it usually is, but I am genuinely happy to see people get into prog and enjoy the music. I believe that guide to prog image has been posted in this thread or the previous thread, it’s helpful if you want stuff by genre.
What is your favorite Japanese prog band /prog/?
>>113796390probably this one but i honestly don't know much else. midori doesn't count since they're jazz-punk fusion
>>113796390anything with Ryoko Ono or Tatsuya Yoshida, but both together is better
>>113796174stfu and stop giving them any ideas
>>113758451retard couldn't even write the name of the band properly lol
>>113796524i shilled their tarkus cover in a prior thread and was shot down
Close your eyes and look at meI'll be standing by your sideIn between the deep blue seaAnd the sheltering skyIf we find no words to sayTo the rhythm of the wavesThen we'll both surrender thereWalking on air
>>113796624in due time; they'll come aroundI really wish they'd play together more though, since there hasn't been a Sax Ruins album in like 8 years and they haven't done anything aside from the new Koenjihyakkei albumPlastic Dogs was a lot of fun, though. Ivert is one of my favorite albums this year.
>>113796654Sax Ruins is my favorite Tatusya project, in fact. They are mesmerizing to watch live and some of his drumbeats manage to be earth-shattering yet groovy at the same time. Zeuhlbros will stone me for saying this (hard to blame them, Magma is my favorite prog band) but I'd rather a new Sax Ruins than a new Koenji Hyakkei
the leading horse is white
>>113796676I personally would prefer the same, honestly. Not in the sense that I dislike Koenjihyakkei (or Korekyojinn, Ruins, Acid Mothers Temple, Zeni Gava, etc) but that it's really fucking good, and also still fairly unique. It's manic and catchy and extremely tight--very fun music and I would love more.
>>113796630I need to give THRAK another listen now, thank you anon.
Earth, stream and tree encircled by seaWaves sweep the sand from my islandMy sunsets fadeField and glade wait only for rainGrain after grain love erodes myHigh weathered walls which fend off the tideCradle the windTo my islandGaunt granite climbs where gulls wheel and glideMournfully glide o'er my islandMy dawn bride's veil, damp and paleDissolves in the sunLove's web is spun, cats prowl, mice runWreathe snatch-hand briars where owls know my eyesViolet skiesTouch my islandTouch me
>>113796692I wonder what my very catholic grandparents would have thought about 666. I don't know if they were ever exposed to it and they all died before I ever heard it. My mother thinks it's cool, though.
>>113796630I saw Adrian Belew perform this live in New Hampshire a few months ago. If you ever get a chance to see Belew perform live, DO NOT MISS IT. His shows are legit astounding
>>113785840>>113788530Is this not happening? Did I misunderstand that you mean this sunday to be the one after tomorrow (today)?
>>113796390Mandrake, which included Susumu Hirasawa who is now much more famous for P-Model and his solo career.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYz_K4zlS7cScratches a similar itch to early King Crimson for me.
>>113799563I'm going to see him perform Remain in Light in February. Not that proggy, but still :)
Folk albums like picrel? Not really a fan of Jethro Tull besides the obvious two albums
>>113799932>besides the obvious two albumsSongs from the Wood and some other one?Aqualung and Thick as a Brick aren't that folky but those are the two obvious ones otherwise.
>>113796624i liked it>>113798323it's better than Starless and i don't give a damn what you say /prog/
I will finish this someday...https://rateyourmusic.com/list/Syndiciate/top-100-progressive-rock-albums-under-construction-/
>>113799980Aqualung and Thick as a Brick, I've tried getting into his more folky stuff but isn't clicking, I might give it another try but wondering if there's anything else that sounds like this album
>>113799932renaissance ashes burning
>>113762712Playing the Fool by Gentle Giant. https://youtu.be/nRtGOd7Pb9E
>>113773876Solid selection. The only others I would add are Music in a Doll's House by Family, and Vanilla Fudge self-titled album
>>113796390If we're counting prog metal I've always loved Sigh.
Here's a chart of some lesser known/obscure prog and prog-related bands that I've listened to. All 60s/70s but variety of genres.
more albums like this?
>>113801739love the ant phillips, gryphon and gnidrolog
>>113799932Comus First Utterance
>>113801376This is fucking based, thank you anon
>>113802943Like this album, even though CTTE and Relayer (and maybe TFTO) are better imoThe little individual pieces actually work well and the longer songs are simply epic
Zeuhlbros I just got around to listening to this album by Le Silo, it's great.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giACSqfB0t8
>>113802943>mfw Heart of the Sunrise
Yes should just get Geddy in the band full-time. It's not like he's got much else going on right now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1-NsnlPc54
>>113802299>more albums like this?
Have you ever met a girl who likes prog? I imagine the only ones who do look like picrel.
>>113811355I knew a girl who loved prog and I guess you could say she looked like pic rel (book wormish type?) but was actually hot. Genesis and Zappa were her favorites, but she was also the person who introduced me to Aphrodite's Child and Samla Mammas Manna
>>113811355Actual prog or prog metal? If the former, I knew a lesbian gal who liked Rush and we talked quited a lot about Van der Graaf Generator. She was really cute, nice breasts. If the latter, I know plenty chicks who are into Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Opeth and Tool but don't really give a shit about the fun stuff. They look nice, but kinda flat and utterly unbearable.
>>113810678Mark Hollis s/t doesn't sound exactly like it and will probably be too experimental for some progbros but it is better
>>113811476YESI was discussing with a friend about a year ago if there's a SINGLE woman out there who is a Van der Graaf Generator fangirl, and we both settled on the fact that she'd inevitably be a lesbian. Is she Italian too? That was the second quantifier because they have a surprisingly large Italian fanbase
>>113811476I knew tons of straight chicks who liked Rush but I'm Canadian so that's par the territory
>>113811639>Is she Italian too?Close enough, she's Romanian. It's quite fascinating to see how Italians enjoyed prog more than any other nation out there. There must be something in the air.There must be some women who know them and liked one or two songs, like my mother, since there were plenty of radiostation during her college years playing interesting music, but actual fangirls are rare.>>113811687I bet they're fun to hang out with.
>>113811561experimental prog is my favorite
Is prog masonic?
>>113802943>Three good songs and a bunch of filler
>>113812040>Three good songsLong Distance Runaround/The Fish
>>113758409Atom Heart Mother and Ummagumma >>>
What am I in for?
>>113811355never met one irl but the prog girls on youtube do indeed look like that >https://youtu.be/oGMEM7D5DXQ>https://youtu.be/Mb1inCKO69A
>>113812271complete prog kino that has filtered all but the top <1% of trve patricians.
>>113812271An unimaginably good prog album, don't listen to the retards who say it's too long
>Steven Wilson and Rick BeatoIs this peal boomer crossover?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03vThmG46A8
>>113812271the most bland chord progressions with terrible rhythmic display that only impresses people with pleb taste in ambient music. About 12 minutes of the album is good
>>113812376wilson maybe a boomer but he's our boomer that and also remember i saw an interview where he said the n word (no r) which was pretty funny.
>>113812279dude, that first chick is fucking blind, that's not even fair to her>tarkus shirt>is performing with pat methenyshe's based af though
>>113812271Mix of grand ambitions and absolute lack of energy.
>>113773876Updated chart. Pls give feedback.>inb4 Piper isn't proto-progIMO a lot of proggy elements are there in primitive form
>>113812406Post the inteview, I gotta see this
>>113812416didnt mean anything disrespectful btw flowers is cool and she did a lot colabs with emerson.
>>113812279Rachel Flowers is really fucking good, she does tons of ELP covers and nails it every time. Also, she's blind, so that makes it all the more impressive.

>>113812376>confirms the length of the new album at 64 minutesBased, I guess he's done with the recording, hopefully it will be out in a couple months
>>113812376Kino interview so far. I might be a boomer myself, after all

>>113813530My personal favourite so farhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwtaqozGwIY&ab_channel=TVR
>>113812376>>113813566very nice shame pt sucks major ass, hardly prog even. are his solo efforts any better?
>>113813843>hardly progwhat makes them not prog? They have lot of long song with unusual structures and time signatures>are his solo efforts any bettersince you don't like PT you probably won't like them either so just check his last album which is pure pop and even Fantano who hates Wilson's music liked it
>>113813843Grace for Drowning (certain songs, not all) and The Raven That Refused to Sing ditch a lot of the diverse elements PT had (poppy structures, krautrock, etc) and are more pure prog, though there is some jazz stuff in there. You'll probably really like some songs from those albums, I recommend giving them a chance.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjwPt1eNF9Ahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_w8SY_9yO8k
>>113813925>even Fantano who hates Wilson's music liked itHe gets filtered by prog almost as much as Cuckgau so that didn't surprise me one bit
>>113813530>>113813566This one is also pretty goodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB1ZDhK2dLM
>>113813943I've watched this one too, it was also great
>>113813964Wilson, Townsend and Akerfeld are the kind of musicians who are enjoyable to listen to because they always have something interesting to say and don't give cliched answers. Some people call Steven pretentious but he doesn't come as such in interviews.
>>113814048yeah wtf, haven't heard anything about it since the trailer dropped
>>113813843Hand. Cannot. Erase. is one of my favorite albums of all time, so yeah he's pretty alright in my book.
>>113814048It's not the sort of thing that would leak, especially with Fripp involved. Physical copies will likely be up for sale at DGM Live early next year.
>>113813990People don't even know how to use the word pretentious properly anyway. It's a coping narcissistic defense mechanism that's usually used when someone's ego feels threatened
>>113813925I dunno senpai I listened to their first couple albums and they sounded more like boring psych rock to me. the debut was particularly shitty it almost made me stop.these however are more of my jam, specially the second one holy shit >>113813928brb downloading his discog
>>113814477>the debut was particularly shitty it almost made me stopThat's universally agreed as their worst album loltheir early albums are sefinitely more psychedelic, with their third basically having the same structure as Wish You Were Here by Pink FloydTheir 5th and 6th albums are sort of progressive pop rock while everything aftetwards is basically heavy prog
>>113814509I see, I'll give them another shot if that's the case
>>113814477Glad you liked the song, like I said, those albums are more "pure" prog.Having said that, many Porcupine Tree songs will probably scratch the prog itch too. My favorite album of theirs is their third album, which is still psychedelic but much more Floyd sounding as >>113814509 points out.If you like longer prog songs (and I have a feeling you do), give these a chance when you have timehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=590BYwVuC_Ehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbWhpfXisZwYou'll probably also like Raider II from Grace for Drowning, massive prog epic with crazy structure and tons of great soloshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ru26kmc-1E
>>113813566This was a great interview, thanks for posting. Love the way he described Dubliners as "spiritual paralysis", that's a great phrase
>>113814286Why is Fripp such a butthole?
>>113814679Really liking the last one you posted, thanks again anon. The pt ones are good too. Yeah I think they're really in need for a relisten from me. Later though. right now I want to sink my teeth into Van der Graaf Generator since it's one of the few classic prog acts I don't think I'ver listened to.
>>113814868More than happy to be of service, and VdGG is based as well, you will not be disappointed

>>113758380shame we never really got a reunion with gabriel and hackett.
>>113816559Blame Gabriel because he has zero interest in doing it. He came to the last show and I hoped he’d do a surprise guest spot but no.
>>113816600thats not entirely fair as he was interested in doing a reunion with genesis in the mid 2000 that ended up falling threw.

>>113817652nta but how is the show? I love JA Seazer's work with Shuji Terayama and he's the main reason RGU is on my radar but I'm not sure if I'd dig the show, I'm willing to be sold on it though.
>>113818398Sword fencing and love polygons that deconstructs typical "princess meets prince" stories and every episode has a battle with its own unique prog rock track but also everything's an allegory slathered in like 20 layers of symbolism/metaphores and allusions to philosophical babble and classic literature wankery But here's a warning it's clearly aimed at woman and it has very blatant/strong left-leaning messages about lgbtshit and sexuality and directed by a gay guy who's a gay rights activist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnUOowCUJQo

>>113811355I guess I count, but I don't see this question coming up unless someone who just happens to like Prog is deep in the tfwnogf rut, and I've never had a bf or gf and if I did I don't see their musical tastes as being whatever would be our primary connection.So they exist. And they probably won't be your partner over someone else because they like prog.Such cases.
