    DISCLAIMER This review is overly long, somewhat bloated, and quite possibly pretentious and self conscious This is perfectly in keeping with the subject matter My introduction to progressive rock , or prog as it iscommonly known, was somewhere around 1976 or 1977 Bored with KISS and Aerosmith, I walked over to the local mall and hit my favorite record shop in search of new sounds Punk had yet to coalesce and make it s way to small town America, and hard rock had become a shrill rep DISCLAIMER This review is overly long, somewhat bloated, and quite possibly pretentious and self conscious This is perfectly in keeping with the subject matter My introduction to progressive rock , or prog as it iscommonly known, was somewhere around 1976 or 1977 Bored with KISS and Aerosmith, I walked over to the local mall and hit my favorite record sho...

    Spotty.Some of the essays were good Some, I m still trying to figure out why they were even in the book One basically amounted to why I don t listen to Rush and another was ode to a deceased heavy metal forum poster who happened to like King Crimson Lots of I was a teenager, geeky and high, so naturally I liked Prog anecdotes.It could have used someactual music discussions.That said, I do havethan a few bands to go research And I really do need to give early Genesis anothe Spotty.Some of the essays were good Some, I m still trying to figure out why they were even in the book One basically amounted to why I don t listen to Rush and another was ode to a deceased heavy metal forum poster who happened to like King Crimson Lots of I was a teenager, geeky and high, so naturally I liked...

    I enjoy prog rock pieces, somethan others I ve always liked some groups such as YES, but I have never been a diehard FAN of prog As such I wanted to read this book for information on the bands as well as finding out other people s opinions.I found most of the essays in this collection to be enjoyable a couple were excellent, a couple were somewhat tedious, and one was just poor in writing and attitude In particular, I found There is No Rush by Joe Meno, In The Court Of The CrimsonKi I enjoy prog rock pieces, somethan others I ve always liked some groups such as YES, but I have never been a diehard FAN of prog As such I wanted to read this book for information on the bands as well as finding out other people s opinions.I found most of the essays in this collection to be enjoyable a couple were excellent, a couple were somewhat tedious, and one was just poor in writing and attitude In particular, I found There is No Rush by Joe Meno, In The Court Of The CrimsonKing02 by Charles Bock, an...

    Gen Y here, born 1990 Was given this book as part of an ongoing cultural exchange with a friend of mine in his 50s Some of the music discussed here has aged well and stayed relevant to my generation In the early 00s, we listened to Pink Floyd as much and as excitedly as the people who were alive at the time Todd Rundgren, although his name recognition is not huge, is also a Gen Y hero and considered a legend largely on the back of A Wizard, A True Star Genesis, though, are completely irrele Gen Y here, born 1990 Was given this book as part of an ongoing cultural exchange with a friend of mine in his 50s Some of the music discussed here has aged well and stayed relevant to my generation In the early 00s, we listened to Pink Floyd as much and as excitedly as the people who were alive at the time Todd Rundgren, although his name recognition is not huge, is also a Gen Y hero and considered a legend largely on the back of A Wizard, A True Star Genesis, though, are completely irrelevant to us I had heard of them before but only listened after reading this collection It s very hard to imagine that the Sussudio and Sledgehammer guys were in a band together, and even harder that they were taken so incredibly seriously Prog overall has not aged well, and most of these writers are embarrassed and self conscious about their geeky passion for acts like Emerson, Lake Palmer Often their personal, heartfelt stories transcend the songs themselves It was interes...

    I burned through this book in a day and half I loved it so This is not just for Prog fans, it s also for the haters, maybe evenso It s really about memories about growing up awkward and misfit with large doses of weed and masterbation None of the essays focus on two of my favorites Magma or Van Der Graaf Generator Emerson Lake Palmer and Genesis figure prominently There are also essays on Yes, The Nice, King Crimson, Styx and the Caterbury scene Pink Floyd and Utopia I recomme I burned through this book in a day and half I loved it so This is not just for Prog fans, it s also for the haters, maybe evenso It s really about memories about growing up awkward and misfit with large doses of weed and masterbation None of the essays focus on two of my favorites Magma or Van Der Graaf Generator Emerson Lake Palmer a...

    Fun read A series of personal essays about Prog music, varying from Prog is awesome and you shouldn t be ashamed to listed to it to Yes, you should be ashamed I feel both ways The book isn t really a history of the form, instead a series of personal encounters with the genre I spent much of my early music learning on prog bands and can appreciate much of the book The only thing missing was attention to the new wave of prog bands, but if you have any kind of soft spot for Yes, early Gene Fun read A series of personal essays about Prog music, varying from Prog is awesome and you shouldn t be ashamed to listed to it to Yes, you should be ashamed I feel both ways The book isn t really a history of the form, instead a series of personal encounters with the genre I spent much of my early music learning on prog bands and can appreciate much ...
