4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends ... (Audio CD)
If for nothing else it is worth buying this CD for the awesome version of Tarkus. Apart from slipping in a bit of Epitaph from Greg's King Crimson days, it climaxes with the best version of Aquatarkus you are ever likely to hear. Prog rock got/gets a lot of stick but this shows that musical genre at its best. Great playing, inventive music, a tremendous show. And I was luck enough to have seen it live!

You know, I continually hear reviewers say "Prog gets a lot of stick", but I never really read that 'stick' anywhere except from the fans themselves. Maybe prog rockers should stop with that cracked record and maybe the fixed idea will vanish.

Prog has received a huge amount of stick over the past 30 years. For three decades, a large section of the music press has been implying that all prog is just self-indulgent, pretentious noodling.

Back in the mid-1980s, music titles such as Melody Maker and NME were continually making comments about "boring old prog", "too many notes", and "dinosaurs" while at the same time waxing lyrical about inconsequential indie bands that everybody's since forgotten. They even referred to Mike Oldfield as "Mike Oldfart" while he was still in his mid-20s...

And last year there was a girl singer (can't remember her name, but she was a nobody fronting a 'here today gone tomorrow' band) at Glastonbury referring to another group as "horrible proggy crap". There seems to be at least two whole generations who have been indoctrinated into being scared of instrumental orientated music that isn't made for people to dance to.

You've clearly been living on the North Pole all these years, E. J. Ryan. Or maybe you're still a teen. I suspect you're just a troll...
