Following feedback from our members and from the prog genre teams, we (the Admin team) have updated the definition of the category "Prog related". The revised definition can be found here: http://www.progarchives.com/subgenre.asp?style=38
 
We do not envisage any major change as a result of this, the objective was simply to make the definition clearer and to ensure it reflected the way bands are assessed for this wide ranging genre.
 
Our thanks go to John (Easy money) who led the project.

Clap Sounds good to me. (Still don't see why some bands are in there but, as I'm sure you know, I am a good forum member who never complains. About anything.)

Pretty good definition.  Could've used a werewolf though.

Yeah, we welcome it with knives, swords, spears and such Wink

There's a point where "avant-garde" and "experimental" becomes "terrible" and "pointless,"

That's a much better definition, but the rhetorical question at the end is missing the question mark! UNACCEPTABLE!

Now can you guys please remove the text ad for vividseats.com at the top of the prog metal definition? I don't know how it got there but it's embarrassing. And EL, your review of Zeppelin IV from 2006 is still italicizing every other review after yours!

PS - Should a rhetorical question have a question mark. Or not?

yes IMO a question mark is called for at the end, and should probably read:   A very good way to describe prog-related would be to imagine an exhaustive book that covered the history of progressive rock. Would such a book include references to Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven', David Bowie's 'The Man Who Sold the World' or Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?  Probably so.

also Led Zeppelin reads 'led Zepplin', which I assume was a typo (or the English pronunciation Tongue )

an excellent def and a huge improvement--  kudos to all involved

OK, back on topic. It indeed is well said definition and I personally think that it's better than some Prog definitions :-D It's new, it's updated, it's carefully debated topic (so it's bulletproof, kind of).

What are practical outcomes of this update ? How will this help to new Prog-related additions ?

Of course.  You should add a rhetorical question mark. Wink

Frankly, most of the definitions on this site read like they were written in a different language, then poorly translated.The new "Prog-related" one, on the other hand, is clear, well-written and interesting; good work.

Great definition that creates many new posibilities!
The only thing that I reacted to was that Progarchives wasn't written with a capital letter.

It would seem to me that, based on criteria 2, 4, 6 and 7, we should finally admit Boston.
