Who's laughing now? It's on page four.

How hard is it for a person to look through a five-page thread and find the thing he is looking for?

I'm not an expert on these things but I don't think Kashmir is in 3/4 or 6/4. It's certainly not in waltz time despite the odd timing of the riff.

6/4 over 4/4 in the verses.

The most appealing to prog rock standards, for me, is Carouselambra.

Looks like I got some of the theory to revisit.

Agreed ... and by definition definitly the one piece that is "progressive" ... and he can explain it to you really well in "It's Gonna Get Loud" ...
 
I like LZ a lot, but I really think that stretching this to progressive is a bit scary ... although by the time we put the distinctions side by side, LZ will come off more progressive than half the bands we DID call progressive.
 
I have fond memories of the age of bootlegs and some of these by this band! Their concerts were (generally) excellent.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Achilles is the one...
No Quarter is next.
Friends of the Folk/Prog song off of III is worth a shout.

I agree, by any standard actually, it is their most progressive number in the studio -

I always thought Song Remains the Same to be proggy......but No Quarter, Kashmir and Achilles also fit the bill for me.

I went with this. The live version on The Song Remains the Same is just sublime. It's one of those songs that I just *had* to learn how to play, note-for-note.

if any kind of long song is "progressive" , so "November Rain" is a prog-epic lol:


Did Guns-n-Roses sing about elves and pixies? About magic runes writ in gold? About Mordor and the Hammer of the gods? Hmph. I thought not. Wink

Four Stix, my favorite under appreciated LZ track. I love how the 5/4 and 3/4 sections fit together. I don't know if it's their most prog but I love it.

Agreed. Other tracks on IV get all the notice (Stairway, Levee, Rock & Roll, Black Dog, Evermore, Going to California), but it's Four Sticks and Misty Mountain Hop that are the real backbone of this album. Such an amazing album, one that's hard to appreciate because of its ubiquity (every song got massive air play on AOR stations in the US in the 70s/80s).

Come to think of it, 4 Sticks is probably the only song from IV I haven't heard on the radio.

Spoken by someone who's probably only heard 'Black Dog'. 

No Quarter, Achilles, The Song Remains the Same, the Rain Song, Carouselambra, etc, not prog? Eh?
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...
