Thinking about the bands I listen to (see my previous comments) reminds me that I generally have an aversion to prog rock bands other than Genesis. I can’t stand most Yes songs. Their lyrics often sound to me like the pseudo-intellectual musings of a wannabe 16 year old poet, and their music is not as consistently melodic as is that of Genesis. ELP tends to be “too grandiose” by half for my taste. I could go on, but the general point I’m raising is that Genesis is the only prog band that consistently does it for me (though King Crimson has its moments). Am I out on an island alone feeling like this?
I have often wondered if I am the only one.
I love Pink Floyd but I'm unsure of their prog credentials. I feel like they are more in the psychedelic/classic rock line of work.
I love Genesis with a passion but have yet to register anything like a moment of excitement for their stablemates.
