I'm listening to this right now great album
Brave is such a good album. I prefer Marillion w/ Hogarth to Fish-led Marillion, by far. If you like this CD, you'll love Marbles. Just be sure to check out the 2CD version with Ocean Cloud on it.
favourite prog song:
So this past month I finally caved and started listening to Genesis & Gabriel. As a huge fan of the Moodies & Crimson I finally caved. I haven't went any further than The Lamb and I don't know if I really want to after the disappointment of Bruford leavin Yes.
Looking at Genesis though, they really were just the middle ground between Crimson & Yes, However they pulled it off better than Yes ever could.
It really is, I don't know why Egg don't get more credit at times.
The best Yes song is Then, Even without Wakeman and Howe, the band starts to find their feet.
Also Yes without Bruford are a soulless monster driven forward only by Squire's desire for money.
This is progarchives top 100
Egg's first album
Emerson, Lake and Palmer's first four albums
Mirage and Moonmadness by Camel
Atmosphera's only album
Moving Waves by Focus
Journey to the Centre of the Eye and Remember the Future by Nektar
Relayer, Close to the Edge and Fragile by Yes
DSOTM could be switched with another album. I feel like it's only in there for recognition's sake, but at least it isn't The Wall.
Tarkus' absence is a bit worrying when Lateralus is creeping around there.
Some people just don't have the concentration span required to appreciate it.
There's some really nice J-Prog from the 70's & 80's. I'd share a few albums but my HDD died recently. Your best bet is to lurk on Japanese BBS, My girlfriend has found some really nice stuff that way.
You may also want to check out some of the listings on Planet Mellotron, it can really help.
Almost a good list, but there's one HUGE problem with it.
>All that Crim
>No Brondesbury tapes
>No McDonald & Giles
So fucking close to being a good list too. I know some people might consider listing The Brondesbury tapes as just being a duplicate, but both are worth it, and if one has to go, let go of TCIOGG&F because The Brondesbury Tapes are better, we can lose North Meadow and One in a Million if we really need to.
Nothing wrong with it. People hate Haskell, but he was better than Boz.
We even have the best Jon Anderson performance in a song so pretentious that his involvement in it seems so un-pretentious.
>Love JoJo for over a decade
>I can't even call Roundabout my favourite Yes song.
It's just not Then, Starship Trooper, Heart of the Sunrise, And you And I or Siberian Khatru
Honestly, it's not that it's an over-exposure of Fripp, but rather that Level 5 & TCOL are not both essential, especially not together. One can be replaced with McDonald & Giles which is more likely to be buried than The Nice.
>tfw did the entirety of the Apocalypse in 9/8 solo for some friends at a party the other weekend where the house had an old Hammond spinet
>tfw none of them recognised it
What do you live in yurop or something? They're fucking everywhere around here. Pic related, mine.
Fuck yeah I do. Shit sounds great with everything. Chorus is great, amplification is great, ping-pong delay is too much fun with an actual piano. Even sounds better with headphones on.
If I had to nominate a Progressive Rock song for the best song ever, it would probably be War by Henry Cow. It's just 2 minutes and a half, but it has so many high and very emotional peaks. Plus, the concept of it is excellent. Listen to it if you haven't!
Also, I'm listening to Lincoln by They Might Be Giants. Is it just me or the first song is far better than the rest?
Gnosis2000 > Progarchives
Seriously, check that page out. It's a lot better.
Amused to Death, The Least We Can Do Is Wave At Each Other, In Search Of The Lost Chord, and Days of Future Passed belong on this list That's just a few from off the top of my head.
Reminder that Glenn Cornick, the original bassist for Jethro Tull is dying in a hospice due to heart failure.
4Chan is being a worthless piece of shit and won't let me post the facebook post so just google search "Glenn Cornick hospice facebook" if you need to see it.
New Kayo Dot will be this years AOTY. I know toby and he gave me a copy
this shit is so good
also album cover is totally Mahavishnu Orchestra
I have known them for some time. It's just that they can be posted in a lot of different threads. In this case, since OP asked for our favorite prog songs, War was perfect for the situation.
Could someone explain to me why the closers on every Gentle Giant album are significantly worse compared to the rest?
Also, Playing the Fool is the best GG album, if only for the Octopus medley alone
I understand what your saying about it being repetitive, and i agree (don't even love checkmate tbh, always skip it)
But to me, this album gives such a unique vibe that no album has ever given me. my favourite part is Second Spasm: the krumhorn break and the epic adventurous part after that is highly ranked in my mind as to what music should be like.
Yeah, that part is my favorite too. It always seemed to me that they were just average compared to bands from the same era on that album. So choosing it as the best prog album seems weird to me.
I know that its a popular pick but Shine On You Crazy Diamond is my favorite.
Anyone got love for Peter Hammill? This album gave me an appreciation for Van Der Graaf Generator.
The Lamb is Genesis's best album and it only goes downhill from there
That said give A Trick of the Tail and Wind&Wurthering a spin. They're decent
Everything after that it's like a different band. A shitty pop rock band
Anyone ever listen to this? Great album
Does anyone know if there's anything similar to this?
>Tipographica - ['95.9.23 Fine]
It sounds like playing three Super Mario Bros songs cutted and pasted at the same time. Fans of complex/difficult music will love this!
That was pretty weak, imo
Am I a pleb if Starless is my favorite song from the King Crimson
