So i gave this a full listen after all the praise and this is really great, my prog AOTY so far, barely any weak moments despite 2 hour length.
Listen to it here
No idea what to expect from new Steven Wilson since it will sound totally different from the first 2 revealed songs. Same with Neal Morse album.
That's cutting it a bit fine. Like Miles Davis wasn't playing prog rock. He was playing jazz influenced by rock but he was no more a rock artist than Flying Lotus is a jazz artist.
Listened to this the other day and loved it
it's my first experience with the Raga Rock genre but I am definitely going to explore it more now, I love the way they blend traditional southeast asian instrumentation with krautrockish jams.
guess I'll post this here since no one really cared when I made a thread for it.

Gentle Giant is the bomb, Acquiring the taste is my favorite by them
I listened to Three Friends by Gentle Giant, very good, possibly my second favorite by them
Been listening to The Rotters Club by Hatfield and the North and let me just say, it's great. I adore their self titled, but I'm leaning toward their latter album as my favorite. Also, Yes is my favorite prog band get at me.
CHON - Puddle
finally a relevant place to post this yee
you guys familiar with the swedish prog scene at all?
also y'all should check out the orient express for some zesty sitar-driven prog. heard about them for the first time yesterday, really cool stuff
If anyone is familiar with Plini, he is a solo guitarist from Australia who makes sort of CHON - like short EPs, he has a third one coming out soon.
this guy's guitar gymnastics are good as fuck, songs are fun and catchy and jazzy. I think its light enough to stay in the category of prog rock and not quite pass into the category of prog metal.

anyone here into progressive electronics? I Listened to pic related recently and it was banging af, I want to delve further into the genre, anyone got recs?
Room - Pre-Flight
>Jazz Rock, Prog Rock
one of my favorites from 2013.
i've finally found prog. rock that i can enjoy, namely strawbs' from the witchhood and grave new world. i guess i like the folky sound. also the song structures don't ever get too complex for my tastes.
Even Brewer was the bassist of the faceless with drummer alex rudinger, alex did the drums for evans album both absolutley amazing musicians
I've been jamming to this a lot lately. It's short but very good. I also bought the cassette.
I keep seeing prog thread after prog thread so I can't hold my tongue any longer. Prog or "progressive" rock is Olive Garden in music form. By that I of course mean that it is low culture which masquerades as high culture in order to make those who want to appear intellectual without actually putting in the effort feel as if they have arrived at that end. In its attempts to add elements of music which is ACTUALLY progressive and artful and elite (classical, electronic, the purer forms of jazz) to rock, which is by its very nature generic, simple, and made to appeal to the lowest common denominator, "prog" ends up not only being the antithesis of both but more objectively terrible than either, for it knows that it has failed in transcending mediocrity but continues to pretend as if it has.
Is this their bst lie album? Love Sleepless on this one, Bruford's on fire.
I keep seeing this type of comments. Why not listen to all of them? I listen to classical (mostly baroque era) and jazz but why not enjoy or listen to other genres? This just comes as close minded
Well you see, people who are easily duped into believing ideas as ludicrous as rock being able to become "progressive" by poorly appropriating elements of genres which are truly more majestic are usually a bit slow so I was just making sure you could get it.
>I don't know anything about music theory yet I think I can have a well informed opinion about music
Laugh every time.jpg
favorite heavy prog album?
mine is pic related
I play in my college's symphonic band, music theory still has nothing to do with any perceived intellectual value of music
also prog rock borrows heavily from classical composition and if you can't tell that I think you need a lesson in theory
This is a far cry, but if the anon who told me to go get The Great Deceiver is here, you're great. I really prefer it over the other KC live stuff.
I do it for AllMusic recommendations but it really has no meaning at all. I've found that most of my favorite albums have 3.0-3.80 raing on RYM and I don't really see why I and anybody else should care
Hello /prog/ friends
I'm going to be attending ROSfest this may
I've heard of most of these bands but the only ones I've actually listened to are Spocks Beard and Haken
Are any of these other ones a must-hear?
I can understand not enjoying Gentle Giant as a whole but I feel like it is quite similar to most of their early material, especially acquiring the taste, so I see no reason to enjoy some and not Octopus. I personally think it is their best. Would you care to explain why you don't enjoy it?
