Emerson, Lake & Palmer: English Prog

Intense! Even a blast beat or two  ;)

Premiata Forneria Marconi: Italian Prog:

The flow, and smooth thematic transition of old-school prog compared to modern prog stands out.

Van Der Graaf Generator: English Prog

This is perhaps a fleeting example of what we were told would be the permanent outcome of liberation and democratisation of culture: High art being embraced by the masses. A composer in every rehearsal studio, musicians exploring themes of humanity and existence on every radio station. Encorporation of high culture into modern forms. A genius on every street corner.

Instead we have tripe.

Pink Floyd: English Psychedelia (early)/Space Rock(mid)/Prog(mid-later)

The pioneers of space music. Their early, wandering period flirting with mysticism in between loosing their first front man and achieving world-wide fame with darkside of the moon is in some respects their most interesting. Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk and the rest of the rest of the 'krautrock' movement would not have existed.

Agree. My favourite would be Piper at the Gates of Dawn which unlike their later stuff is pop stuctured with a subconscious profundity rather than 'profound' music that is just pop at heart.

And speaking of the Tangerine Dream influence, witness this quirky gem:

Great! Piper is certianly arresting.
Are you suggesting
that it is more profound than their more famous offerings?

TD has certainly came along way, and that's for sure.
In amongst the drones
The 'singer' in this clip looks as though high as a motherfucker.
Though I did hear a flicker or two of set the controls.

I could never get into anything this band did.

Much respect for the old stuff though, it's some weird shit - can totally see how some metal bands took influence from it.

Yes. And I'm pretty sure the Idiot-Savant diagnosis was specifically invented for people like Syd. Without him the band was basically just some talented musicians. A meaningless poem that pretends to have meaning. But I do like most of their stuff prior to Darkside of the Moon.

This song is great! I know it from the game Dink Smallwood. Actually now I'm beggining to remember this song from several places.
