    Anyways, I've been busy listening to some Van der Graaf Generator:


    It's amazing stuff. You should all listen to The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other and Pawn Hearts. They're only albums I've listened from them so far and I love them both.
    you should get H to He, Who Am the Only One next

    Killer is always awesome to listen to, even if it isn't one of their deeper cuts.

    The Emperor in His War-Room and Pioneers over c. are also tubular (except for the lame sax solo in the latter)

    Gave some of ELP's In The Hot Seat a listen. It was okay, I liked it. Wouldn't say it's any good though

    I'm too afraid to do so myself.

    I'm attempting to get some friends to delve into this sort of music, as most of them like older rock music, and I feel they would enjoy it.

    So far, I've got people into Rush, but that's it.

    I don't really know any people who love jazz like I do..

    I do know a few prog fans though. Some are more into symphonic stuff though as compared to the "free improvisation" stuff that I like :3:

    Actually, now that I think about it, my mother is a Pink Floyd fan. But I think that's it.

    Listened to Black Moon this morning, I can understand why people saw it as a strong comeback. It's good.


    Also I listened to the 13 Pink Floyd studio albums I have yesterday, in chronological order

    Quiztime:
    What song initially got you curious about a prog band or the prog genre?


    Not even too dense prog, but from there I got heavily into porcupine tree and was preoccupied with anything Steven Wilson related for about a year. Also hit up Anathema during that time and The Pineapple Thief. Then dad decided to get Pink Floyd's Time via the itunes store and I was already curious about it. Now I have 5 Pink Floyd Albums, a few King Crimson albums and am listening to Thick as a Brick.

    Surprisingly it was Yes' Fragile album that got me into Progressive Rock.

    Particularly this song.

    ChronoFloyd listeners whoo

    And to answer to quiztime, Dream Theater's Pull Me Under got me into progressive metal.
    Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and King Crimson's In The Court Of The Crimson King got me into progressive rock.
    Especially King Crimson's I Talk To The Wind.

    Porcupine Tree's Deadwing and In Absentia albums got me into prog rock. I remember my brother came home, he was 16 and I was 12 at the time, with In Absentia and said "This album is amazing, listen to it". So he sat me down and made me listen to it from start to finish. I think my jaw literally dropped a couple of times.

    Octavarium by Dream Theater got me into prog metal. The idea of a 24 minute long metal song piqued my interest (odd thing for a 12 year old now that I think about it...)

    Blackwater Park by Opeth got me into prog death, I remember listening to it the first time and thinking "It's good but I don't like the growls" then I listened to it again and was all "HOLY SHIT AMAZING"

    The Moving Pictures album from Rush. Flawless album, absolutely flawless. I think I was... 11 when I listened to it.

    The Still Life album made me realise the greatness of Blackwater Park.

    I never really listened to their earlier stuff until this year because I had heard that pre-Blackwater Park was more black. But it's so awesome. It's really folky in parts. April Ethereal off of My Arms Your Hearse and The Moor from Still Life are two of my favourite Opeth tracks now

    In ways I prefer their earlier work. I don't think it's darker though..

    No, I soon deduced that the person who told me that is an idiot and listens to Korn.

    Morningrise and Orchid are black-metal influenced.

    Gilmour on his "About Face" album: "Looking back on it, it has some great moments on there but the whole flavour of it is too '80s for my current tastes."

    :wtc: His own music isn't his taste?

    I don't understand how you grow up through the 80s then end up disliking it. :raise:
