I don't understand how can someone like this


I don't understand how can someone think this is the worst album ever recorded.

I ttoally am NOT a prog fan but this is a totally awesome prog album. A true classic.

Look at his album votes and I think you'll see why. He clearly isn't very good at using the rating system.
Seriously this is one of those albums that just never gets old. Fucking brilliant album

The first and last tracks are quite enjoyable, but everything in between is horrid.

Really? Very rarely do you see prog fans that don't like this album.

I trick myself into enjoying this I was a bit dramatic, however - "Epitaph" is actually quite a decent song.

That being said, "I Talk To The Wind" is uneventful instrumentally and the vocals are lifeless. Also, what the hell is going on for most of "Moonchild"? How can anyone find that mildly stimulating?

None of this is directed at you, just trying to explain my reasoning for anyone curious.

Edit: changed my rating to a 7 - my initial rating was a visceral reaction :-/

I can sort of understand Moonchild towards the end... but "I Talk to the Wind" and "Epitaph" are bangers.
You explained your reasoning sufficiently enough, and I'm glad you reconsidered your '5'.

You wouldn't dare!! Nah I understand why this wouldn't be an album you'd feel eager about checking out.

Not an album I've actively avoided, just never seemed to come up at the right time. It's now been brought heavily into my purview so its days of anonymity are numbered.

I'll probably end up giving this an 8 when I get over my disappointment - my expectations were slightly inflated given that this is one of the most highly-praised prog albums of all time

^ not only one of the most highly praised prog albums, but many also argue that this is the 1st incarnation of prog rock. I can only say that it must had been very daring to record this back then.
Also, voting up it, given how much I like it, how many times I've heard it and the impact it have had on my music.

A true classic.

Kids these days they don't have taste for classics. Seriously, I think someone must be totally without good taste for good music if this album can't interest him/her.

Written by Guest on 26.11.2014 at 02:54

Not much though

then let me write a strictly disciplined plan for the albums you must listen

Written by mz on 26.11.2014 at 06:55

this is the 1st incarnation of prog rock.

why did you use "incarnation" ? I can't get it what you mean.

Certainly not the first, but perhaps one of the most daring.
