Re: Re: Glass Fans of the world unite!!!!!

It was called Part 5.

It was actually quite pleasant, if unimaginative, for the first 30-40 secs. Then it started getting boring because it just repeated over and over. By the end of the second...

Sure! Limiting oneself that narrowly is for people who're more interested in making a fashion statement than in enjoying good music. IMO


Sure. I'd go along with that POV 100%

Let me reiterate here, I never said I hope I never hear Glass again; only THIS glass.


Is that good? He didn't use arpeggiators but made a piece of music that sounded as if he had? I'm not sure I'd...

OK, listen...

I didn't say all of Glass's work is bad. I didn't say all of this genre are bad. I said this piece is bad, very bad, and I really hope I don't hear it again.

Now I did point out, in...

I didn't criticize Glass's "work" for being MODERN. I criticized it for being BAD, BORING, MONOTONOUS, INCONSEQUENTIAL.

It's like it't trying to be Tangerine Dream by buying an expensive keyboard...

Perhaps, but like a lot of contemporaray art - all it says to me is "let's see how many people we can con into thinking this piece of [used food] is worth paying money for".

Certainly closer to classical than to jazz or blues, though it borrows from all the forms.

I'd say that what makes prog prog is it's relationship to the classical forms, though. Classical music is...

Nah! That would completely destroy the concept.

Angry Never again

Here's a request for a "song" I hope I never have to hear again.

Philip Glass, Part 5.

I suspect it took longer to listen to than to write. Sounds like he just left the keyboard arpeggiating for...

Does it matter?

Nobody, if you're only talking to yourself.

But if you're trying to compare notes with someone with a completely different definition then you can get into all sorts of misunderstandings if you're...

Definition revisited.

A little while back I discussed a very old definition of prog rock but in retrospect I don't like my use of the word "repetetive" in describing the alternative. I think the word suggests "boring"...

Definition of "Progressive"

I have never seen an adequate definition of "progressive" - man I hate labels - and I'm sure it is not defined - I don't consider "Progressive Metal" bands such as Ice Age or Braindance any more...

Trivia question....

Great idea

If this can be done, I think it is a great idea.

It could easily be abused, but this doesn't seem like the kind of community that would be a problem.

didn't like the vocals.

I liked GG's music but found the vocals a bit distracting. They seemed harsh and almost too discordant to me.

I had the same with Van Der Graph Generator. I loved some of the music, especially...

But there are several others that I could go for...

I've just read this thread and I feel like I'm in good company.

I agree with everything everyone else has put in except for some of the King Crimson stuff which I frankly don't like.

I liked BJH, but I recently gave one of their albums a re-listening and it turned out to sound VERY dated and a little weak. The same with Uria Heep's Magician's Birthday. I loved it when it was new...
