The Emperor in His War-Room and Pioneers over c. are also tubular (except for the lame sax solo in the latter)
Got Works Vol. 1 by ELP today :iia:
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 was about to talk about Emerson Lake and Palmer.
Karn Evil 9 Series = godly
New Prog is fine too. :3:
Indeed it is.
This song is brilliant
So far, I've got people into Rush, but that's it.
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:
I'm gonna give this a listen.
Carl Palmer in that picture makes me crack up.
Still haven't listened to it yet. I'm holding back until I'm ready :3:
your body is not ready for Palmer's hairy chest
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
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.
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.
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?
Tastes can change
