But alas alot of people on here dont have the respect for progressive music as I do, expect for a few.
Ayreon are not progressive in any sense of the word.
Sure they are.
Whats makes a song, or a band progressive?
pls david tell me
Actually making music that progresses? I mean this not in the sense of within the context of their own music, but rather within the grander scheme of of metal as a whole or even music as a whole.
Sure, they have the 'prog.' formula down of cheesy synths, weedly solos, etc. down pat but, man they just aren't progressive in any sense of the word DUE to them being formulaic like that.
Not that there is anything wrong with liking music that makes no effort to go anywhere, I love a lot of s**t that has no desire to move forward, but the thing that makes these bands interesting and worth listening to is that they do not hide behind these 'progressive' pretenses.
