Then again.. music is all perception.. you get to like a lot of crap music just because you've been brainwashed by it through the radio and such

That's exactly why I haven't "listened" to the radio in over twenty years!

It also explains why listeners are turning away from FM to XM in droves. The FM stations have to follow strict play lists, concocked by some marketing executive, and so they play the same 20 songs or so all day long, day after day. And since maybe 95% of the FM stations are now owned by only a handfull of media giants, is it any wonder they all sound the same?

Hi all

I'm delighted to find myself embedded in that prog list!

I call my music progressive because it 'progresses' from the standard rock form to quite involved. structured pieces, relying heavily on counterpoint, modulations, theme development and other classical devices.

Much of my material is on the web at www.soundclick.com/tombyrne Do drop by an have a listen.

Best regards

Death Cab for Cutie
Cat Power
The Hives

My daughter has been asked to do an assignment on Dream Theatre - I'd never heard of them.... After listening to some of their stuff on Youtube, here are the conclusions I came to (feel free to disagree..:-)

Dream Theatre - Genre: Heavy metal – originally from ‘heavy mettle’ – clumsy ability

Although their style followed on from ‘progressive’ rock in that their early music was not based on short song forms, their compositions amount to little more than extended riff rock relieved by shows of technical dexterity – what Frank Zappa once referred to as “clouds of educated gnat-notes” (He also referred to their "pathetic lick-spewage and freeze-dried stereotypifications.")

Metal lyrics tend to be juvenile and banal, with romantic tragedy being a standard theme of metal. Heavy metal songs often feature outlandish, fantasy-inspired lyrics, frequently inspired by mythology and fiction, lending them an escapist quality. This theme was probably initiated by Black Sabbath's "The Wizard’ and Led Zeppelin’s “Ramble On’ . Dream Theatre have nothing new to offer here.

Early Heavy metal bands, such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Black Sabbath, had singers with vocal strength and range that matched the power of the bands – a necessity in the days of inadequate PA systems. Very few bands following this era had singers who could do little more than speak the works of their songs. None of the singers in Dream Theatre appear to have had more than mediocre ability. The current fashion in the Metal formula, which Dream Theatre follow, is for the lyrics to be screamed and heavily distorted. This covers up any lack of vocal ability.

Legacy: their early hit ‘Pull me Down’ appears to have set in stone the formula for modern Metal sound, particularly the sound of the bass and guitar doubling the underlying riff, which nearly all metal bands use today. Although there later albums appear to be more oriented to shorter song based music, there appears to have been little musical development in their style over their career. It remained for a few Bands such as System of a Down, who used Armenian folk tunes and political protest, and Rammstein, who combine theatrical performance with more melodic songs, to break the mold and bring new life to the genre.
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

I'm still stuck in the ELP/King Cimson/This Mortal Coil/Traffic/West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band era.
The music may be progressive but I don't appear to have progressed very far.
