  • Dimension X Project...

    What is "progressive" music..? Anyone I can listen to to get the gist of this?

    I'm sure this sounds behind the times, but I am.

    Progressive music? Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes, and Genesis, for earlier bands. Drean Theater, Queensryche, Fates Warning, for some more modern stuff.

    There are much more out there, and more varying fields of "progressive" than what's represented by what I've listed.

        Hmm, I've never thought of Pink Floyd as progressive..

          The first thing that popped into my head was like old King Crimson, but take some of Robert Fripp or Adrian Belew aside and some of it is still just a jam. i.e. rock y roll...

            Best place to really learn about the different genres of Prog Rock is:
            http://ghostland.com/ghostland/

            Many reviews on Prog rock bands.

            Links,
            Labels,
            Etc..

            To me it's a complex music.
            Time changes, tempo changes, long pieces, different moods.
            All can be happening within one song.

            Sometimes even getting a little bit on the fusion side of things.

            I myself am more into the Prog Metal.
            Dream Theater
            Fates Warning
            Vanden Plas
            Dali's Dilemma
            Magnitude 9
            Explorers Club
            Threshold
            Shadow Gallery
            Symphony X
            Angra

            and many more....

            Many of the labels like
            Road Runner
            Metal Blade
            Century Media

            carry prog metal bands as well.
