Re: Shut down progarchives

Wow, this thread frightened me at first. I love ProgArchives - I go there frequently to learn about artists I've recently heard about (whether hearing a track here on the Moon or elsewhere). As...

Re: Ken's Novel

I actually preferred their first album, The Guide, over Domain of Oblivion. I thought the tracks on the latter album tended to run together in my mind with fairly little to distinguish them.

That...

Re: New Jadis CD and Martin Orford leaves (cut and paste)

My opinion is that Jadis albums alternate great and okay:

- More Than Meets The Eye: Okay. "Wonderful World" is a great track.
- Across The Water: Great.
- Somersault: Okay, with a couple of very...

Re: What do you like best in prog?

I think that fundamentally what I appreciate about prog is that it rarely strays into the basic pop form of verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-verse-chorus. The structures are varied and fluid, and it...

Re: What CD's Are you Playing RIght Now? Top 5

Hmm, I like Snow quite a bit, but I have to admit I always think of it as a prog version of The Who's Tommy. It's essentially the same story, with a dose of Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land...

Re: What CD's Are you Playing RIght Now? Top 5

I don't object to it, but music with lyrics coming from a substantially different worldview from mine can obstruct my enjoyment of the whole package.

I do own some Christian music. I enjoy Iona,...

Re: OK.....here's a very easy one to get the ball rolling.

In order for it to be easy, I would need to be a fan of ELP and PH, but I've never heard anything by them other than their radio "hits"! :rolleyes:

Hmm, a little searching turns up a song by each...

Re: What CD's Are you Playing RIght Now? Top 5

I've been reluctant to buy Morse's post-Spock's Beard stuff due to what I understand is substantial Christian content. (A girlfriend once described me as "the least spiritual person she knew".) How...

Re: What CD's Are you Playing RIght Now? Top 5

CDs mainly get listened to in my car; elsewhere I just put iTunes (http://www.apple.com/itunes/) on random song rotation. So, here's what I've got in my car, listed more-or-less in order of...

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! ZNR (mentioned by termin8r) looks especially promising.

Prog on-line stores

Has anyone bought any CDs from the Kinesis (http://www.kinesiscd.com/) on-line store? I just stumbled across them and figured it wouldn't hurt to ask whether anyone's had any good or bad experiences...

I like the requesting system. I don't make a large number of requests (a few a week at my peak). But I do enjoy having the feature there. I use it to listen to specific artists I'm interested in, and...

Re: Prog subgenre definitions

This page (http://www.progarchives.com/Progressive-rock.asp) has some decent definitions of prog subgenre terms. As with any such definitions, take what you like and completely disregard the rest. :)

Re: What a sham!

My ten favorite musical artists, in no particular order, are:

The Who (including Pete Townshend)

Re: Re: Re: Re: What a sham!

Not last I checked. :)

I graduated high school in the late 80s, so my prime teen years were at the dawn of MTV and the heart of the 80s. But I hated the music then and I hate it now. It wasn't until...

In Absentia

I picked up In Absentia and haven't been that into it. "Blackest Eyes" is a good rocking song, but otherwise I found the album to be pretty faceless.

I actually put it in the same bucket as Opeth's...

Re: Re: What a sham!

If it weren't for U2, Depeche Mode and REM, 80s music would have been merely bland. Instead, it was actively annoying. ;)

Geez, the 80s. What a musical wasteland.

Re: Dada

I remember when Puzzle came out, and I bought it on the strength of "Dizz Knee Land". I've always thought of them as alternative pop rather than progressive, and the album struck me as being rather...

One Song, Many Tracks

One thing I'd like to see is for songs that are split across many tracks to get merged into a single track on the playlist. This is something I do in my own music library (thank you, iTunes...

Re: Flower Power

Aw, c'mon, "Magic Pie" isn't that bad. You just have to have the right goofy 60s mentality to appreciated it!

The second disc does have several great tracks: "Deaf Numb and Blind", "Stupid Girl" and...
