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.

This comment section confirms again that there are two kinds of people.

@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 Einstürzende 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.

@peakingo So, you're denying you're a liberal?

Actually, your opinion is not shared by the vast majority of true prog rock fans, a group to which you obviously do not belong.

Seriously Old Ollie. STFU.

The day I'm intimidated by your taste is the day you become young again.

The band blows d*ck. It has no soul, no purpose they're all Berkley teachers who just want to stroke their own ego.

It's a fact, if you dig it congrats go masturbate to it for all I care.

I think they suck... scratch that, they do suck. mike portnoy is a Peart wanna be without the creativity or skill as someone like Danny Carey.

Rudess is a great keyboard player when he's not over doing it, great guy too. Met him in music school years ago.

Lastly, at what point in my time on this site and my engagements with you have I written anything that can be misconstrued as a child like mind that believes Beiber is the best music?

To me that logic falls in place with TEA BAGGERs and Cons who feel that anyone who disagrees with them is a Liberal, but then again let's consider who I'm talking about.

Makes sense.

I was seriously expecting more from those speakers. "Meh" post of the day.

Their music wasn't bad, either. They certainly aren't Creed.

Maybe they would be if Creed spent 10 years at Juilliard.

30 minute guitar solos with absolutely no purpose other than for the guitarist to show how proficient he is. Same goes with the drummer, who is so over rated and the keyboardist, though I've met him and he's a nice guy who can take his ego out of his instrument. sometimes... sometimes.

And this coming from a massive prog rock fan who loves 20/30 minute song epics from YES and ELP.

Might work for a tweeter.

And peakingo, you have the taste of a maggot. Now go put on a Justin Beeber album and for God's sake, use headphones.

I don't see what's wrong with 'Dream Theater', never heard of them. Their music wasn't bad, either. They certainly aren't Creed.
