    I love progressive music, but have to say, anytime I hear a song in 6.5/8 or 13/8 it kinda makes me sick. (Coming from the guys writes in 5/4 then switches to 10/8 (Triple time, with beat be tied with left overs), then gets annoyed at drummer for messing up :P)

    YOU CANNOT HAVE THAT OK. IT DOESN'T EXIST IT IS AGAINST THE LAWS OF EVERYTHING.

    It would be 13/16.

    6.5/8 was the joke that Tool made about their song Schism, right?

    Yeah, but fractional time signatures do exist. 4.5/4 is similar to 9/8 in that it lasts the same length of time, but is counted in 2s rather than 3s as it would be in 9/8

    ""The Dance of Eternity" by Dream Theater. This instrumental contains mixtures of faster and slower beat groupings in 8, 7, 6, 5, and 4. It goes through over 128 time signature changes in just over six minutes."

    By my reckoning it's the same as 3/64, but it must be counted in a different group

    Edited:

    Too late for complex time signatures :byodood:

    Weird time signatures can be awesome, but they can also be extremely wanky. I've written a song in 13 and managed to make it sound not wanky I think.

    Most of Elton John's early albums are very "prog" influenced.

    In fact, he was considered for vocals on King Crimson's In The Wake of Poseiden :psyduck:

    No, that's Tippett. His "Keith Tippett Group" is awesome.

    The compositions don't change on vinyl, man.

    Besides, Fragile isn't The Yes Album.

    Compositions don't but I don't care about that. It's about sound, they do draw a LOT of sound out in the remasters.
