Progressive Rock

Postby dsnito » Wed Sep 18, 2002 6:06 pm

Although I'm not a fanatic for Progressive/Symphonic Rock I do like groups as Emerson, Lake and Palmer, Yes, Jethro Tull, Rick Wakeman and English Rock Ensemble, Genesis, etc.
What do you guys think about Progressive style??

Peace.

Depends on what is labelled a Prog Rock. I've heard both Queen and Styx labelled as such, and enjo them. Rick Wakeman, I also quite like (my mother and I saw him live a couple of year ago). In general, I tend to go for the acts who have established their greatness of many years' standing.

It depends what do you reckon as "classic", I think classics are the 50s standards, Beatle-songs, and all the great rock songs.
Progressive Rock is a mix of classic and rock music, and symphonic orchestra is used generally, as well as the synthsizers.

Well Liam, I think Queen and Styx can be included in another cathegory of style, but not much as Progressive. The Queen never used synthsizers in their early works, and Styx was more a "theatrical"style as we can see on "Kilroy" as kinda "rock-opera".
Progressive Rock groups used to be symphonic concertists wannabe, they used to mix classical works and hard rock lines with much synthsizers and symphonic orchestras are usually present on recordings.

By the way Liam, did you already listen to Wakeman's "Tribute To The Beatles" CD, released in 1998??
I think Wakeman's performance is OK, but a bit "cold" on his Beatles' covers...
