(I owe you five more, sorry)

stick to prog artists, No Jacket Required is not a prog album, sorry... 

I agree with your choices, except Peter Gabriel's Ovo which i like. 
There's No Jacket Required to take part in this thread, so if Phil Collins wants to gain entry, he can do, even if it's Against All Odds at Face Value. Smile

if you want any artist in the list, please ask an admin to move this thread to the general music section then.

I gathered that after Robin Trower was rejected for inclusion in PA. That's why I put prog related in lower case letters and not capitals. Smile

I'm afraid The Dreaming is only a poor 2-star album for me, but on a positive note, Hounds of Love, Aerial & 50 Words for Snow are all 5-star favourites. Thumbs Up

I'm speechless.

It's a daring adventurous album. We should expect that some hate it...

Yea, I was a little surprised to see The Dreaming on his list too (along with Discipline)
But I guess we like what we like.

Love the band, but "Pure" never click on me, perhaps the voice of Fog or the lack of experimentation compared to "Strange in Stereo" and "Omnio".

1.The Construkction Of Light - King Crimson
2. Giant For a Day - Gentle Giant
3. Wonderworld - Uriah Heep
4.  Locked In - Wishbone Ash
5. Aerosol Grey Machine - VDDG
6. Broadsword and The Beast - Jethro Tull
7. The Unfortunate Cup of Tea - Horslips
8. Ian Anderson - Rupi's Dance
9. Mother Focus - Focus

I just realized...maybe I am not really into prog, as I can only select these 9 acts I possibly "love"... all the other prog artists that I have in my collection I just don't "love" that much. Uriah Heep I loved up until 1973....and Wishbone Ash are prog-related as well.

Question is; can anyone really love King Crimson?! Or is it too simplistic to love KC?! I don't love them; just respect them.

I really like Aerosol Grey Machine, and I like Mother Focus. As for Giant for a Day, it's more that I just plain dislike it than love to hate it.

I can't think of any albums that I love to hate, I know there have been some guilty pleasure ones that I have somewhat hated to love.

The only love to hate thing that I can think of right now might have been Chibnal's Doctor Who run, which is off-topic.

As for King Crimson, I have no reason to think that people don't genuinely love it. I genuinely love KC music, but not all of it. I haven't thought of it as particularly simplistic nor that complex. There is a lot of very simple music that I love, and I know that a lot of very simple music that people love. I'm not sure how serious you are being or if I may be misunderstanding you. Even in Prog, I wouldn't call it simplistic, let alone compared to much mainstream rock and pop music.

What an odd question. Or perhaps I just don’t understand what you are questioning? Or perhaps you are being facetious?

I definitely love King Crimson. Not everything they’ve done - but then again, I’m not sure there is any band or artist for whom I love everything they’ve done. But I certainly love a lot of King Crimson’s music, and enough for me to say that I love them. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Crimson's The Construkction Of Light is actually one of their best albums. Actually Crimson never made a weak album, they are all enjoyable, and their best albums can be found in any of their phases.

[/QUOTE]

But at least he tried out things on Earthling, such as drum and bass music (whether or not one likes that type of music is another story - it's not so much my thing, but I acknowledge its qualities). On Hours it doesn't sound to me like he is trying anything.
[/QUOTE]

I know. 1. Outside esp the full 2 cd version is very interesting. Nice re-write after The Leon Suites,which his distribution company refused. That would have tested many.

Earthling is very powerful sounding. The second Cd sort of acts like a mini Dead Man Walking concept piece. He took the modern approach then (as ever) and applied song craft. Very novel.

Just because someone hates particular albums doesn't mean they aren't any good, just that we respond differently to certain albums and the fact we love particular bands we tend to react harshly to the albums we don't like from those bands we love because we have high expectations from them.
