Most Overrated Progressive Rock Bandshype
The Top Ten
Certainly, within their respective metal genre, they have earned the praise and acclaim that they deserve, but as a general prog group, they've never really struck me as outstanding. I admire their ideas on music theory and lyricism, but prog music obviously isn't all technicality as it is diverse sounds yet still giving off a "rock n roll" vibe. To me, Dream Theater is somewhat far from the most impressive group in prog, but still a decent enough band I can enjoy during my spare time.
Who wants to listen to a grown man whine over musicians wanking their instruments to death for 20 something minutes. - beb
Before you call it the most overrated, have you thought about how a large proportion of prog fans wouldn't have even discovered Genesis or Porcupine Tree if Pink Floyd hadn't made them love the genre? And since they are the most famous, probably they influenced the most prog bands since themselves.
I think this list should be titled "Least Underrated Progressive Rock Bands". - Alkadikce
Average musicians. Ambient music. Common pop songs slowed down + wailing sounds. The are good, just not THAT good.
Good band, but a pretty easy pick for your favorite prog band. It's a common opinion that they're the best.
Think Floyd is too often misrepresented as a "progressive rock" band. May have seemed "progressive"- i.e., innovative - four decades ago, but most of their music is blues-based and not particularly "progressive" as that term has been employed for the past 25-or-so years.
(facepalm) everything I listen to is overrated... - Alkadikce
Good god how is this not in the top 10?
