    Hey I started a new group for music fanatics, the focus is going to be different than the ExMF and the frosty paradigm. It's a bit of an experiment but if a bunch of people get in it could be cool. Join if you are interested. I want this group to become a center for music discussion on Lastfm (even though it's metal centered, other genres are more than welcome to be discussed.) Cheers!

    conservative rock [2] Prog is elitist. It's music for introverts, people with a classical sense of aesthetics who grew up with rock music. That is not a value judgment in any way. But hipsters and punks DO need to shut the fuck up. Prog isn't for you and it never will be.

    Prog: The only rock genre that actually tweaked my cerebral cortex in an interesting way, yet it ultimately induced seizures. Subsequently, Punk ravaged and destroyed my peripheral neurons (in a strangely satisfying way). BTW, I'm a vegetable now, listening to ABBA.

    I'm someone who would say that I dislike prog rock (as a whole) but funnily enough most of my favorite rock bands are considered prog rock or are related to it in some way.
