peakingo, I was listening to 70s prog when you were still in diapers. I have most of the bands you mention on vinyl, and I still listen to them quite frequently. The sad fact, though, is that none of them have done anything new and interesting for the past 35 years, and I'm not about to spend my life living in the past (although it`s not as pathetic as living in someone ELSE`S past). There has been some truly incredible prog music made in the last 20 years. If you can`t appreciate it, that`s your loss.

@Old Ollie, I don't care what the masses think. Which to be honest is a fair thought of most music prog music fans. I don`t get wtf you just post. When was that site designed in 1997?
Music is subjective, people dig what they dig. Personally-I think modern (post 70s) prog bands suck. Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Spocks Beard, etc... I`m not a fan at all. They lack soul in their music and unless we`re talking about post-punk German Industrial music such as EinstÃ¼rzende Neubauten, then having a soul in music is very important to me.
20 + years after 70s prog masters such as Yes, King Crimson, Camel, Can, Neu!, Harmonia, ELP, Caravan, Silver Apples, Van Deer Graaf Generator, Klaus Schulz, and Tangerine Dreams just to name a few... everything else is just a bad copy.
Seriously, listen to any of those bands and tell me again that DT is comparable.
You like them that`s cool, go to their shows and watch their stupid long goatees flip

trebowski -if you understood that only half of the equation is the speaker itself, and the other half the recording equipment he used to capture it in action (obviously a low-to-mid quality camera with video-recording capability), it would be apparent that the speakers aren't entirely responsible. I do wish he had used better recording equipment to aptly demonstrate this device. I`m thoroughly bewildered.
