    Anyone on here as interested as me in progressive rock music? I've been listening to as much as I can get my hands on since I was 11 or so, starting with the relatively modern Porcupine Tree and extreme prog metal like Opeth then expanding into the classics of the late 60s-early 70s scene before diversifying to everything from Prog-influenced punk like Cardiacs out to psychedelic folk like Comus, avant-garde school fusion ala Frank Zappa, progressive electronic like Tangerine Dream and post-metal like ISIS and Neurosis. I can hear the mentality of a band trying to capture progressive ideas in so much modern pop music such as Muse and say Foals, but I don't think song-writing can ever be as fulfilling to me as when bands completely abandon the constraints they have to fit to be commercially successful - say as Jefferson Airplane did between Surrealistic Pillow and After Bathing at Baxter's.

    Been listening to Hatfield and The North's two albums this morning (a supergroup of the 'Canterbury scene' and it really is brilliant, a tasteful mash-up of psychedelic rock, jazz fusion, 60s English pop and so much more. Absolutely brilliant compositions and really great ideas about how to segue between songs and sections of music.



    Anyhow, now to see whether prog will live up to its name of being very unpopular via how many people post on this thread!
