I admire both bands, but Talk Talk is closer to my heart, so to say.

Area has long been one of my absolute favourite bands for quite a few years and I cannot vote against it. That said, I like Talk Talk a lot and actually they make the kinds of music that I'm listening to a lot these days. .

Gotta go Talk Talk here, love the meloncholy 80's sound that they have.  It really transcends many different genres all of which I love.

They're probably either referring to the better known one, Spirit of Eden, or asserting that Spirit of Eden isn't prog and Laughing Stock is.

I like Talk Talk, but the samples I heard from Area convinced me to give them my vote.

That has to be in the same way all post rock bands are progressive but not prog then.

this is what I thought, but, I'm fairly sure that both albums warrrant the description Prog(ressive) ^ I don't care for the distinction either!

Whichever, both albums are fantasticBig smile

so what. Prog.. progressive.. it is all the same.. but oh so very different. Give me a progressive group over a prog group ANY DAY of the week.

progressive describes the majority of the database here and a great number of recent additions to the database. Prog is a ingrained genre with dots to connectas much as any genre, thus those that fail get the dread 'not prog tag', however progressive rock is free of such bullsh*t, simply musicians doing music that inspires them using the kitchen sink and more. You know.. what  the original 70's masters did before it became instuttionalized and they became parodies of themselves and others simply became modern updates of the same sound and style.

Prog is a dead genre.. or one on life support if one wants to be really generous. It will last creativity as long as the last boomer is around.

However progressive rock is alive and well in a vast number of current and recent history bands. That is what many young people, and many musicians are into.  I like to sh*t on Steven Wilson whenever I get on the chance but one smart thing he did was deny the ;prog' tag. That is a toe tage for new groups wanted to have audiences and careers past playing old folks prog festivals and sites like this.  Many bands are tagged by this site as 'prog' yet strangely deny it, or blissfully unaware they have been lumped in with prog as a genre.

The site itself long stopped being simply about prog long ago man.... otherwise we wouldn't have the genres we have here: for example the  RIO/avant, electronic, krautrock, crossover, fusion/JR subgenres even to a large extent the folksie sub genres. Clap
