I have to thank the same friend that introduced me to City Boy, BJH, Kayak, Camel, Supertramp & Genesis for getting me into The Moody Blues. I used to play the compilation double album "This is The Moody Blues" in my car a lot, never really knowing what song I was playing - just that t...

I must've been distracted or just not paying attention during the year 2000 because I completely missed Dream Theater coming through the Bay Area (S.F.), and I think Spock's Beard was touring with them at the time. The first tour I saw was the "Six Degrees..." concert (at the Warfield Thea...

Go ahead and vote Andy... as long as you have an opinion. I'd highly recommend you getting "Demons and Wizards". I remember trying to get my friends to listen to UH when I was in high school, but the vocals kept turning them off... but I loved it !! I thought it interesting that the guy th...

"Images and Words" was the first one I heard back when it first came out. It's great to see how much more known they are now than before. They're accepted among many different crowds, the Proggers, the Metal thrasher-types, which includes a wide age range - just go to a concert and you'll ...

. DREAM THEATER is a very unique band in that each member is an absolute master of their instrument and the sound is what so many bands thrive to be able to imitate... these guys are a collective, unbelievable talent !!!!! Their sound Prog Metal, without a doubt, and that's where they've dropped fro...

URIAH HEEP was one of the first hard rock bands with a progressive twist that I had ever heard - and it must have been around 1974 that I got the LIVE album. My brother and I split the cost and ended up liking opposite styles - he liked the long, more involved tracks (Gypsy, July Morning) and I like...

a strong 8 for Supertramp !! I normally go back to listen to the earlier albums ('mid 70's through early 80's). Roger Hodgeson's departure after "...Famous Last Words" changed their sound and style very much IMO. Favorites are probably "Even In The Quietest Moments" and "Cri...

This is a rating of the band... so I'm stretching here to go with a 7 for Steelhouse Lane only (since I haven't heard any of Nowhere Land yet). Most of the songs don't grab me and hold me for continuous listens. If I were to vote on the guitarist and his impact on the music or the talent of the guit...

I agree about your comment 'jam' about PT's music being wide ranged. That is the reason that they moved up my favorites ladder so quickly after I heard "in absentia". I feel the same way about A.C.T (and City Boy for that matter) in the sense that the heavy parts of the songs make sense an...

. I h-i-g-h-l-y recommend anyone who likes the newer styles of progressive rock to check this band out. Steven Wilson's voice is very nice - matches the music which does have a similarity to Pink Floyd, but really, they have their own sound (which is familiar as a PT style now). I got into PT with t...

. This one's a little tough. If I balance things with the rest of my votes, I've got to go with an 8... I wish I could start over again (with all of the votes). I think I would've voted higher for some of them (ie. Genesis). Blue Oyster Cult is one of the earliest of favorite rock bands for me. I fo...

. Everytime a POLL like this comes up, I get the urge to go get all of my CD's out (if I have any of that band) and delve further into that band, usually after I've voted. So far it wouldn't have changed my vote... Last night I picked up a copy of ELO's Out Of The Blue tour, Live at Wembley... it wa...

. I started listening to E.L.O. around '75. I lost a little bit of interest when all I heard on the radio from ELO was pop and Top 40 songs. The beat was always a 4/4 from beginning to end. I really started to appreciate their style more in the mid-90's when I started to pay more attention the album...
