I still haven't heard ELP's In The Hot Seat album. Apparently that's the most hated prog album of all time. :smith:
I thought the most hated was Topographic Oceans?
It has its moments of awesomeness (like Wakeman's synthesiser solo at the end of the first track) but there's a lot of filler.
It isn't so much of a journey like the others, it's more like a place you've got to go and adapt to.
I may be talking as if I'm high, but that's how this thread has to go :smug:
Also, this album is the first of two albums which go together, Their next will contiune the story in this one.
Ah sweet. Do they have an actual full length in the works, or was it just this EP?
This one was an EP, but it's part one of a story which will be continued by the next full album.
They did it as an EP so they could release it quickly and have new songs to play live
Back the day it was accepted that a 25 minute album was an actual LP. Now it's generally seen that 45 minutes is the boundary for LP qualification. :3:
It's pretty much on the dividing line between an LP and an EP in length, but it's marketed as an EP and the band consider it as such so it's an EP
what is BTBAM doing here?
some people reccomended me their album "colors", i listened it, oh god it was bad.
i mean i really like prequel to the sequel, awesome riff, until the singer started singing.
either way i'm pretty sure they're not prog rock
They're progressive metal, but they do take influences from prog rock for sure
Also it's not like their singer just growls or screams, he does cleans too.
Oh and their album Alaska was released as an instrumental if you enjoy the instruments but not the vocals.
meant awful get your panties out that twist.
I like my panties twisted thank you very much
Come on, guys, you seem to be awefully rude here.
I am in awe over these posts :smug:
One thing like about BTBAM is the fact they go from really heavy to soft then sometimes back to heavy.
No, the label will have announced it as an LP because an LP will get more notoriety than an EP, and they obviously want more copies sold
BTBAM is pretty damn awesome
It's not often you hear metal in a major key
