Progressive Biography

My name's Ian, it's been a couple months since I wrote my first bio, and found that it's crazy outdated, so I'll give you a new one, but a lot less lengthy.

I came to the site like 99% of most of us, drunk on seventies music, especially Yes, and their live album Yessongs, which I still consider the best collection of songs in the universe. Two years later, I have almost completely shyd away from seventies music, and I find myself almost being hipocritical for being on a site thats run on seventies music. What can I say, I moved on, and I've grown to like more modern things. My musical loves are Post rock, post/experimental metal, Math rock, and even some Black metal when I'm feeling extreme. I really dislike folk, punk, and 99% of pop/hip hop (if theres a difference). I do my best to support modern music ithe forums, and sometimes get into some trouble, but sometimes we need to realize that a lot of us are stuck in the seventies, and even though we tell ourselves were open minded, a barrier of three decades will tell us otherwise.

Some of my earlier reviews are really crappy, but as you can tell, the later they are the better, thanks for reviewing, and feel free to private message me questions, comments, praises or hate messages =). Thanks for reading.
