Isn't it a bit of semantics? There's a mix between rock/pop or rock and softer rock, if you prefer. I certainly wouldn't say they are dissimilar. Another group in this mix and period would the Styx. They have some rocky numbers and ballades like 'She Cares' ... (one of my personal all time top 10s).

Boston was probably more rock in their early years and got 'softer' with age.

But try comparing a song like Amanda (mid 80's) to say Toto's Pamela .. (Edit .. or Rosanna of course ).

And about Genesis. Agree with Jimmie. Genesis with a heavy Phil Collins influence is also my preference. I too am a fan of his solo work.

Oh ... it certainly wasn't taken as such. We all have different tastes ..

I guess, the point I was trying to make was, I feel the lines between heavy rock / rock / soft rock is rather blurred ..

Hmm, no, not really. "Kind of Blue" is a quintet recording while on "Sketches of Spain" he's accompanied by a big band conducted by Gil Evans. Don't let the mention of the words "big band" misslead you into thinking that it's a swing record though because it ain't.

Re: Music Thread

Since prog-rock was mentionned, I've always liked 70's Jethro Tull...

Re: Music Thread

Well, as we now have a music thread ... I did not see this one coming :

Tara Palmer-Tomkinson launches music career

There's even a music video .. if you're brave enough to listen (don't be scared. Auto-tune is your friend).


http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...5-Seconds.html


If anyone not familiar with this 'socialite' wonders why her nose looks funny, then it's because of reconstructive surgery. Sniffing half a ton of Columbia's finest (not coffee *hint*) isn't good for your nose.

I saw them twice back in the day, and they put on a great show, but I'm not a fan and find their ditties simplistic, BUT, they are hugely important in terms of musical progression and punctuation (in the rock and roll genre). Yawnaff yes, overrated No.

Well not all song writers can be geniuses, and just because they fall way short, I can think of worse to pick out for ridicule...

So who would have the gravest effect playing live in an Asylum... Tom Waits, Leonard cohen, or Nick cave?

Any amount of humiliation endured for a little stretch to the 15 mins... Shhh... IT Girl...

Isn't this a Music thread though?

I think I prefer an impassioned original Rodrigo... Was he trying a Gets? Miles Debut album was mind blowing...

Fussing the other way, I have been nodding to some Led Zeppelin cover with wicked guitar solos on grande, strings, and wood.

And here's Hiromi's jazzed up version. At the start she even makes her piano sound like a harpsichord, which was of course a key instrument of the baroque period. Further on she really starts to kick butt and gets ultra-virtuosic. Amazing stuff, although I expect that most of you will probably not like it.

Victor Borge's love child is Hello Kitty?

That's exactly what my 40 something balding accountant always used to say when I let the Jimmy rip. I think his second favorite was Marrilion.

Re: Music Thread

Was just browsing iTunes charts.
http://www.apple.com/euro/itunes/charts/top10songs.html
Being as Caro is playing in Korea this week, I thought it appropriate to mention, the most popular download is a Korean 'song' .. Dance Max.

Gangnam Style



And like Carly Rae's 'Call Me Maybe', there's a lot of copies springing up on You Tube



Brilliant
