    My prog rock starting point.


    Someone posted Karnivool on FP in a thread while back, and it was the first time I had heard anything like it. I was just totally blown away by it.

    Holy fuck, SW is coming all the way to Sweden and Norway on the second leg but still doesn't bother coming here

    YOU'RE BREAKING MY HEART, WILSON

    Also, I've almost completed my Boris discography now. They aren't exactly prog but they're pretty damn amazing and they're progressive-ishly minded enough so they must count. Experimental - progressive, what's the difference? Feedbacker, Pink and Akuma No Uta are some of the best albums I've heard in a long time.

    I'll just leave this here:

    Keepin' the thread alive.

    i was searching around from some of the worst 80s progressive rock and came across some of the most vile things ever.

    The good pretensions of the 70s seemed to have worn off by then I guess.

    You know, prog rock thread, I am surprised at you. Some of what might be the best news for prog rock since the 70's and you pass it by.

    40th Anniversary edition of Aqualung has been released and it's pretty fucking excellent, but Steve Wilson posted a very nice announcement which is pretty fucking exciting. Not only is he remixing Thick as a Brick, but:

    I recently had the pleasure of mixing the new Ian Anderson / Jethro Tull album, which is a follow up to the classic Thick as a Brick album from 1972. TAAB2 is very much in the tradition of the first album, a continuous 54 minute concept piece with a similar musical palette and style. It's just been officially announced for release in April as a CD/DVD (including a 5.1 mix and stereo in high res), more details on the Tull website. I also completed mixes for a 40th anniversary surround sound edition of the original Thick as a Brick, though not sure when that is coming out.

    Youtube video has music in it and it sounds FANTASTIC.

    Thick as a Brick is probably up there on my top 5 or 10 favorite songs of all time, but I feel shamed for not really listening to anything past that point.

    Thick as a Brick was great but I don't know what to think about this one. 70's prog bands trying to make 70's prog in this day and age just sound so, I don't know, forced and out of place. Might be just me, though.

    I didn't particularly like Fly from Here either. Jon Anderson was right to want to move the band forward rather than dwell in the past and his leaving the band was completely justified.

    From what I can hear from the youtube video trailer, it sounds really nice. I have high hopes, but its not going to be a classic or anything, I don't think

    Sounds like it'll be a great album. But theres little to no chance it'll live up to the original. Which is a bit unfair.
    In other news, Storm Corrosion is now officially signed to Roadrunner and the album is due out April 20th. I'm excited.
    So many albums coming out around then. Flying Colours, Koloss, Storm Corrosion, TTAB2, new Neal Morse album (possibly)

    apparently its a lot darker and less humourous, so I'm really looking forward to seeing how that goes

    I mean he cant exactly parody 70s prog again in the way he did the first time. Its not the 70s anymore.

    Also its funny, the boy it was about, Gerald, becomes a member of the labour party

    All FOABP needed to rate as my favourite album ever was a reworked version of this song with the lyrics to close the album, maybe an acoustic version or something that really emphasises the lyrics.


    But seriously FOABP still rates as one of my top albums, the concept is so strong, its political and not too fantastical like other prog rock concepts, it begins really strongly with the title song, hits some of the best production techniques in Anesthetize, like that bit where the guitar makes a groove using panning to the left and right which I never get sick of. Then songs like My Ashes and Sentimental which are some of the most well-composed songs I've heard.
    convinced me getting the album

    The drummer is so awesome, but then remembered Ian Wallace was actually a King Crimson drummer.

    Passed away.

    To top it off, Anathema is releasing an all new album on April 23rd which is purported to be better than We're Here Because We're Here, it's called Weather Systems.

    April is going to ruin me financially

    Anyone listened to these guys called Aphrodite's Child? They're Greek, I'm currently listening to 666 (The Apocalypse of John, 13/18). It sounds really good. I like it a lot.

    This is considered the "single" from that album:

    Vangelis' original band before he went solo if I remember correctly. We had that record in my shop for ages. Always intrigued me but it was a bit expensive for a blind buy.

    From what I remember reading about it one of the tracks is two minutes of a woman having an orgasm

    Aye. The song is called ∞. It features a Greek actress saying "I was, I am, I am to come" in different freaky tones, almost hysterically. It is supposed to be her climaxing though, yeah.

    Also how I wish they did a live version of the lizard album. Lizard is one of the most overlooked crimson albums and also one of the most unique

    Is anyone here a listener of Peter Gabriel's later stuff? I'm listening to to Us in work, I've got Up at home.

    It's really clear to see the influence on the likes of Steven Wilson's solo stuff in Up. Lot of the same elements.

    Yeah funnily enough I've only heard New Blood of his recent stuff. It's like I skipped 2 decades worth of good stuff. I still need to hear Us and Up.

    Us is much more in keeping with his early stuff. Up is an absolutely incredible curveball which is really reminiscent of similar "70's heroes-gone-solo"'s later forays into darker music, but it's much more earnest sounding. Signal to Noise is one of the best, most intense songs I've heard in a while
