2.) I've played 2 shows with some bands this week so I've been listening to underground demo cd's

3.) "Maps" by Scarlet

It looks like there a lot of Prog rock fans on this board. Any suggestions where a naive could get started listening to that? I have always heard good things, but never really knew what to pick up.

I'm a massive hip hop fan, and have limited interests in dubstep, drum 'n' bass, different forms of music, soundtracks and country.

The difference between libertarianism and socialism is that libertarians will tolerate the existence of a socialist community, but socialists can't tolerate a libertarian community.

My two favorite songs atm:

I listen to all kinds of weird stuff, ranging from Arab Islamic songs, to traditional Yugoslavian folk music, to rap, techno, Johnny Cash, rock (system of a down), whatever. As long as it sounds good.

I'm all over the map: Radiohead, old Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Mars Volta, Don Henley, King Black Acid, Sugar Free...

What have you been listening to this week?

Vanilla Sky Soundtrack, High Fidelity Soundtrack, Pearl Jam - the album Ten is excellent!

What are you listening to right now?

Jackson LaRose:
Be careful, RUSH stands for, R.uled U.nder S.atan's H.and

Just like some of my other fave bands, huh? "A.nti C.hrist / D.evil's C.hild", & "K.nights I.n S.atan's S.ervice"

Just ridiculously stupid, some of these things!

Jackson LaRose:
Try some Yes, and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer.  Oh yeah, and the guy from Budgie looks and sounds just like Geddy.

I dunno. I can't imagine anyone grabbing me the way Rush did when I first heard 'Xanadu', even if it was 15 years after it was recorded. And the only thing I know about ELP is that they threatened to sue Purple after the California Jam in 1974 becoz they didn't fancy their chances coming on after Blackmore nearly blew himself & Ian Paice up at the end.

Tom Jones is coming to Oz next month - now that's a bloke that can sing....still, he's Welsh, what do we expect?

Not sure if it counts but try Breaking Benjamin, a band I think is awesome.

Hoo boy, this is the kind of question I was born to answer.

Depends on what you currently like,  Judging by your initial post, I'd say

Pink Floyd - Echoes (or maybe just watch Live at Pompeii)

Yes - Fragile

Genesis - Live

Gong - Angel's Egg (Radio Gnome Invisible, Part 2)

Rush - Hemispheres

Emerson, Lake, and Palmer - Trilogy

King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King (Don't listen to the haters, 21st Century Schizoid Man Makes the whole album worthwhile)

Gentle Giant - Octopus

That's a pretty decent primer from the godfathers themselves.

Yeah, I'll give you the Tull, Thick as a brick is a classic.   Can is sort of esoteric, I was aiming for just a bare bones, beginner's guide to prog.  Believe me,  I barely even listen to these albums anymore.

I will be cold in the ground before I recommend Dream Theater to anyone, under any circumstances.

I tend to get that response from people.  They are a slower paced band (in some aspects).

It's not the pace, it's just overall blandness.  I listen to plenty of slow stuff.

Alright Jackson, I got a question for you: What defines Prog Rock?

I know what it is when I hear it, or at least I know the difference between Hemispheres & Grace Under Pressure, for instance. But what about 'The Fountain of Lamneth' or '2112'? And, if you're familiar with it, what about Metallica's 'Master of Puppets' - there are heaps of key-changes & time-changes on that album, and the title track itself goes for about 9 minutes, with abut 4 distinct parts, from quiet to heavy. Does that qualify, or does it have to meander along like 'Hemispheres' does? And if it doesn't qualify, then does 'Xanadu' qualify, and, if so, why? Is it simply that Rush are classified in some quarters as Prog Rock, so everything they do gets labelled such, whereas Metallica are classified Hard Rock, and so nothing they do qualifies as Prog Rock, or what? I dunno? This is not a gee-up - I wanna be educated!

In short, what is the definition of Prog Rock, where do we draw the line, and why?

Armin van Buuren is a genius....have all his albums - SOT '06 is the best, but anything he does is as good as it gets for Trance. And he's not averse to using guitars, which is a bonus for a Blackmore wannabe like me.

As far as I know, there is no set criteria.  If you go to the website Progarchives, you'll find all sorts of music, from the Residents, to Behold...The Arctopus.  There are a few commonalities, use of synths is one, strange meters is another.  It's just music that attempts to push the envelope (or sound like the stuff that pushed the envelope at one point) of rock music, or utilizing the palette of traditional rock music (guitar, bass guitar, drums, keys, vocals).  Beyond that, the sky is the limit.

PvD, Ferry Corsten, and ATB.

Dash Berlin has some good recent songs. Lasgo (original w/ Evi Goffin), Ian van Dahl (Annemie Coenen), and Lara McAllen = hotness.

Yeah, the borders are really vague. For example, math rock uses odd time signatures, shifting tempos and dissonance.

Some goddamn epic drumming in those videos.

Other good math rock bands are Cheval de Frise, Don Caballero, Tera Melos and Zach Hill's solo album. Hella is the classic shit, though.
