You could say the same about genre-jumping Jethro Tull and they're loved by most young prog dudes. Prognards remember that Thick as a Brick was ironic parody. Still their best album in spite of that prick Anderson.
Genesis biggest problem at the time was poor production values imo. Whether it was money or just inexperienced engineers they're pretty muddy records. I think Trespass is the best thing they put out. lol if you think anything after gabriel left is worth a shit. Banks is still one of the best keyboardists of all time, but he couldn't keep that train wreck together by himself.

Are you serious? I mean Yes has some phenomenal albums but ~90% of what he's released is absolute garbage.
>>
>>53020264
I guess I should have worded it different. Most albums in a band he's in is great. But he's also released great solo stuff( Not Necessarily Acoustic, The Haunted Melody, Steve Howe Remedy, Time) a lot of his solo stuff is in fact shit though. Like the homebrew series is godawful.

They did "genre jump" but their music is still great.

It's good

ITCOTCK and Red are better though
>>
>>53021092
maybe Red but definitely not ITCOCK.
>>
>>53021165
my cock?
>>
>>53021165
you can post any album you want on this thread, and it will never be better than ITCOTCK
>>
>>53021270
But King Crimson themselves have made better albums than ITCOCK. Multiple albums. ITCOCK is still fantastic, but Larks Tongues, Red and Discipline are all better.
>>
>>53021270
Typical /mu/drone opinion
>>
>>53021270
Red, Starless and Larks' Tongue are much better than ITCOTCK if you ask me.
>>
>>53021270
this is true
>>
>>53021288
Larks and Red i can understand, but why does everybody love Discipline so much? First time i heard it i was so dissapointed, it's just some trippy Tony Levin basslines with generic 80s guitar effects on top.
Anyway, nothing beats ITCOTCK
>>
>>53021426
Because Discipline is a fantastic album. It's the African-influenced polyrhythms that make it so impressive. So many times in that era, the guitars are just playing in different time signatures from each other. It's really impressive and the music is also just killer. And no, plenty of prog albums beat ITCOCK. Get your /mu/drone shite outta here

its pretty ok i approve of this
just remove pink floyd and rush and save yourself some time since they are not really prog
can also add more gentle giant, more magma more soft machine and maybe some return to forever
>>
>>53021508
both Rush and Pink Floyd are prog dummy.
>>
>>53021442
first of all i don't even know what /mu/drone is so lick my ass-crack.
if Discipline's only about the time signatures, then that's not really that interesting. There's more to music than just trying to be unique.
Not only ITCOTCK but even Islands and Lizard are better than fucking any 80s King Crimson, or any 80s music for that matter
>>

Hemispheres is prog as fuck.

I wasnt saying theyre just good because of the time signatures, you just said " it's just some trippy Tony Levin basslines with generic 80s guitar effects on top." and I was pointing out that you are objectively wrong as to what the substance is. Whether you like it or not is up to you, but you asked why people liked it and I pointed out that there are some very interesting ideas put into place in that album/era. I like 70s King Crimson, but Islands and Lizard better than Discipline? lol

Gnosis2000 > ProgArchives

Not Prog, I just added the Top 100 albums from the site in chart, independently of genre,
>>
>>53021747
so its not a good prog chart then.

>>53021875
What do you mean?
>>
>>53021902
I think we should just use an actual top 100 prog chart in the prog thread. Ya know, seeing as how its a prog thread.
>>
>>53021948
There are like 5 non-prog albums there, it' not really that important.
>>
>prog
>not prog

>proggier than thou
>no true progsman
>>
>>53021902
no ELP
>>
>>53021978
I mean, it certainly gives a good basis on what are some good prog albums, talking it up as a really good prog chart is silly if there are non prog albums on it.
>>
>>53022003
But it has PFT and Banco, which are superior.

>>53022010
Well, now you have the edited version.
>>
>>53022040
Not even Brain Salad Surgery?
>>
>>53022040
bitch
>>
>>53017620
Get the fuck out
>>
>>53022053
It's a good album, and I like it a lot, but if you commpare it to every other album on the chart it makes sense why it isn't there.

>>53022058
Hey! Why?
>>
>>53017620
I agree. By far the worst of the "big" prog bands.

Yeah man, I'm really looking forward to them making a new official album. The demos and singles they've released recently is some of their best work.

I love it. It's not really prog so that's why it's an honorable mention, but yeah, good stuff. It's like proto-ITCOTCK.

Does it actually sound like Proto- ITCOTCK?

>>53022441

Also, K.A. was written in the 70s, so I don't think it fits on the chart.

It's a Prog Archives chart, not a Prog chart.

>>53022846
But, but why doesn't prog archives listen to prog exclusively??

Because they are allowed to rate stuff that was influential on Prog.
Still, Gnosis2000 is better in any possible way.

This is slowly turning into one of my favourites, and dear god how amazing this is after a few listens
>>
Listening to this for the first time, thoughts?
I feel it will require multiple listens for true appreciation
>>
>>53022904
You can, at least relatively more objective (or unbiased). Putting two albums from your favorite band in a essential chart is definitely not being objective.

Nope. Will try to listen to it today.

>>53022932
Diana is one of the objectively best songs ever. The chorus is extremely powerful.

Can we all agree that Hatfield and the North are the best Canterbury Scene band by a comfortable margin?

I guess, haven't listened enough of it, but Gnosis agrees with you.
I really like their song Share It.
