I've been starting to think it's the keyboards..

It's the reluctance for artists to deviate at all from their formulas... which is a comfort to the type of listeners those albums have.

I really like Yes. I try to take a dip into Genesis and Camel every now and then but they still bore me. I find the rest that I've heard rather atrocious. The other subs (minus prog metal and neo) always seem to offer some consistently good finds for me, to varying degrees. 

I still don't understand the theory that people are intentionally voting against their favorite sub. There seems to be the assumption that the same people voting for symph are now voting against it because %16.20 of the voters voted for it here. It isn't a majority vote by any means. That %83.80 that voted for other subgenres seems to be more likely, both logically and numerically, to have voted against it in the knockout poll.

Is it?
Hmm........let's see ,  29 votes above for it ....you're right it's hated by most.
Krautrock is surely the fave with 28 against.

Neo is the only SG that I don't enjoy any of the bands that I have heard. I tend to enjoy mostly "inaccessible" and dark sounds. So RIO got the vote.

(Not sure why I never voted on this poll yet.)


I guess it's kinda official. Tech/extreme prog metal for me.

How could I get through the day without...




Though I could also say I couldn't live without classic 70's stuff. Smile

I don't know, it just seems funny to me that the same people that would make Extreme Metal would make prog, too.
It's just kinda like, you hear "Prog Extreme Metal" and you're just like "What? How is that even possible?"
As for Krautrock or Progressivo Italiano, those just sound kinda strange to me.

Symphonic Prog

Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory? Rip off the masks and let's see.
But that's not right - oh no, what's the story? There's you and there's me.
That can't be right.

Ironically I think that is what put kraut in the lead this far into it. Suddenly you get people from both perspectives voting it after interpreting it differently.

OP was mad that Krautrock was beating his beloved symph prog so, being childish and a sore loser, he edited the poll to read "I Hate Krautrock"
