Call the Names I'd say, dear.
I think you missed the point to be honest. Tell me, are you part of the Rafa/Djoko-tard brigade, eh?

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

Well they call these bands prog rock, when i say we i mean the Media, and all the bands i will name now i have heard and are complete bollox, maybe its because i'm English and a lot of these bands are Swedish and are european countires and ive always felt the best music comes out of America and the UK and i just dont understand or get the european scene,i hate all the keyboard/synthesizer music that is all over the rest of europe anyway will name em

Opeth,Ayreon,Dream Theater,Sylvan,Oceansize there is more but thatwill do for now- you may not feel they are all prog but they are lavelled as that

Hey mate - just to let you know - the leading current Proggies are English - here you have 'em - Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, Anathema, Pure Reason Revolution, Oceansize et al.

Not to mention the Swedish Bunch - Anekdoten, Opeth, The Flower Kings, Pain of Salvation, Paatos - et al.

Have you EVER witnessed a live gig of either of these bands, I dare ask?

EDIT: a few more: Riverside (Poland), Demians (France), Lazuli (France), Nemo (France) -

Do I need to continue, eh?

I didn't even mention the Americans, yet. Yes, THEY are there as well!

Just check out either of these fellows. I'm sure you'd be very positively surprised!

Solid performance of a classic tune. Subdivisions is definitely one of Rush's foremost pieces of lyrical poetry. In that regard, the social commentary of this song has become more meaningful to me through retrospection, both by looking back at my own experiences and understanding what some of my peers dealt with.

From a literal standpoint: during noctural plane flights, I'm sometimes reminded of Subdivisions when I look down and see the many brightly lit metropolitan areas contrasting with the darkly shrouded forests, lakes, and prairies that exist out beyond the "subdivisions."

...

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer
Or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions -
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions -
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help disprove
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Somewhere out of a memory
Of lighted streets on quiet nights...

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!



How at the train tracks -
I dream of escape!
But a song comes onto my iPod,
And I realize it's getting late...

I can't take the staring,
And the sympathy -
And I don't like the questions:
"How do you feel? How's it going in school? Do you wanna talk about it..."

Way out, way out of here!
Fade out, fade out, vanish!


I'll try to forget you -
And I know that I will!
In a thousand years,
Or maybe a week.

I'll burn all your pictures
Cut out your face
And the shutters are down
And the curtains are closed
And I've covered my tracks -
Disposed of the car -

And I'll try to forget,
Even your name
And the way that you look -
When you're sleeping, and dreaming of this...

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, fade out, vanish....


Fantastic vid, Mr. S.W. - I adore you!!!

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

Okay, I have to get out of here right now... but here's Opeth's LOVELY "Burden"...



"... If Death should take me now -
Count my mistakes and let me through!
Whisper in my ear,
You've taken more than we've received
And the ocean of sorrow is you..."



Yeah, a bloddy Death Metal-band this is.
or not?

I have witnessed a lot of prog groups through my work and none of them are as good as the classic prog rock groups,l theres something missing i dont know if its the songs or their attitude but its just not as good, but thats just my opinion

Re: Stupid Dream's PROG ROCK thread!

That's because they can't understand progressive rock had its moment in time and that moment has passed. They wanna imitate the classic bands, which played like 30 years ago. That's why it's crap.

Well no one calls opeth prog rock, they're progressive death metal. And how do they sound like a rehash of older bands? When I listen through Blackwater Park I'm definitely not sitting there thinking of the 70s. Ayreon I don't get the hype about, I hate both albums to be honest, ESPECIALLY the human equation, how pretentious can you get?

As to the countries thing... You must not have gone in depth with most genres.

Certain countries are crap at certain types of music a bit like England are crap at cricket when the likes of India and Australia are around- its just a fact... You aint gonna get a great rock band out of Pakistan are you so they shouldnt even bother these countries, and they should also sing in their own language, i dont wanna go on holiday to Paris and hear English/American bands i wanna hear French music, if i wanted English i may aswell be in a pub in London...
