Topic: Favourite PA Prog Sub-genre

Subject: Favourite PA Prog Sub-genre
Date Posted: September 23 2013 at 19:07
The 19 choices above are the prog subgenres that are recognized by the PA search engine (I excluded "Various Genres" as it's too vague).  I'm curious to see which subgenre's are the favourites of PA members.  As a shortcut to reading and comparing the definition of each subgenre on the PA search page, I included the top 3 ranked bands by album for each one so you can get a flavor of the typical bands PA identifies with each subgenre.

Canterbury Scene - Robert Wyatt, Caravan, Gong
Crossover Prog - Supertramp, Mike Oldfield, Steven Wilson
Eclectic Prog - King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant
Experimental/Post Metal - Tool, Devin Townsend, Maudlin of the Well
Heavy Prog - Rush, The Mars Volta, Porcupine Tree
Indo-Prog/Raga Rock - Andre Fertier's Clivage, Abstract Truth, Codona 
Jazz Rock/Fusion - Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham
Krautrock - Ash Ra Tempel, Popul Vuh, Dom
Neo-Prog - T, Marillion, Arena
Post Rock/Math Rock - Sigur Ros, Russian Circles, Godspeed You Black Emporer
Prog Folk - Jethro Tull, Los Jaivas, Spirogyra
Progressive Electronic - Tangering Dream, Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese
Progressive Metal - Dream Theater, Riverside, Pain of Salvation
Psychedelic/Space Rock - Pink Floyd, Eloy, Dashiell Hedayatt
RIO/Avant-Prog - Frank Zappa, Kayo Dot, Univers Zero
Rock Progressive Italiano - PFM. Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, Area
Symphonic Prog - Yes, Genesis, Anglagard
Tech/Extreme Prog Metal - Opeth, Edge of Insanity, Death
Zeuhl - Magma, Dun, Eskaton

I would appreciate an explanation of this: Exactly how do Math Rock and Post Rock differ and please use bands to exemplify each. (I know, Dean, that I could easily go to the sub-genre page but ... here we are!) 

P.S. Voted Zeuhl. I'm tired.

Ok.  

In the most general sense, Post-Rock is a lot of times more calm and deals with more crescendos, walls of sound, shoegazey sometimes and such.Bands that embody PR are Sigur Ros, Godspeed You!Black Emperor, Ef, Battlestations (just to name the most common and highest rated here). 

Math Rock is a lot of times much more hectic, technically complex, and deals with time sig changes, tapping, and whatnot. The sound of MR can get pretty punky sounding sometimes as well as metal (PR too though). Bands like Don Caballero, Russian Circles, Lite, Giraffes?Giraffes! are again popular/high rated bands here. 

Honestly they're complete opposites in my eyes. The similarities are that they are typically instrumental..

Just to compare the basic sound of each..

Seems to me there's no multiple votes allowed - or was there to begin with? 
I voted for Canterbury and then that was it. 

Otherwise I would've given some love to:
Krautrock
RPI
Avant
Electronic
Eclectic
Zeuhl
Folk
Psych
Fusion

I don't really categorise music unless I have to communicate with peeps on this site though.

Symphonic (Camel, Genesis, Anglagard)
Neo-Prog (IQ, Pendragon, Marillion)
Prog Folk (Mostly Autumn, Horslips, Strawbs)

I loathe all the Rio/Avant, Zeuhl and Krautrock I've heard and Post/Math Rock and Tech/Extreme bore me to tears. Most of the rest are generally OK at the least.

I stopped running multiple choice polls weeks ago because a PA member can't resist the urge to multiple vote a single choice to the point of absurdity and ruin the integrity of the poll.  Since then, I've only run single vote polls, but I thought this one would be more fun as a multiple...alas...someone has taken it upon themselves to once again ruin it for everyone else.

Whoever is ruining these multiple choice polls, why don't you come on out into the light and tell us why?  Of course if you're too shy, you can always PM me.

The landslide victory for Krautrock was tweaked (apologies to the "real" Krautrock fans out there) and the poll converted to single vote only.

Its a shame the poll got ruined. Anyhow it seems my favorite bands are in eclectic, symphonic and heavy sub genres. I have also lot of love for rpi, crossover and neo and finally really like some bands from space, canterbury, folk and metal. I'm still struggling to find something pleasent for my tastes in the rest of the genres, with the special exception of Tool which i love

Not counting non-styles like "eclectic" (GG, VdGG and the first 3 KC albums are primarily symphonic). RPI is very distinct but it's a subgenre of symph:

Symphonic
Canterbury
Electronic
Folk
Avant
Neo
Space
Metal

I considered avant above folk because there's more of it, but my favs of folk are so good. Same thing to a far lesser degree with space v. metal. I can't stand fusion anymore for the absolute most part, but still love RTF.

What's the deal with "I Hate Krautrock"? I far from hate it but when I get the hankering it only lasts about one song.

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"

If you're asking which do I think is the funniest-- Maybe the fact that there is actually Tech/Extreme Prog Metal, or Krautrock or Rock Progressivo Italiano.
If you're asking which is my favorite genre-- Probably Progressive Metal or Heavy Prog, perhaps Neo-Prog, perhaps.

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.

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.

Symphonic music just began to bore me after a while. I still listen to Foxtrot and Trespass every so often, because i love those albums. But besides them, I don't think i listen to anything else offered by the genre. Closest thing i own is The Tangent. 

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

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.

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 don't have a problem with formulas. I just have a problem with formulas I don't like.
