I still can't deal with either band. There's good cheese and bad cheese. Genesis and Yes are unbearably bad cheese.
The only reason why I'd consider Dream Theater any worse is because of their singer.

And yet you listen to the metal you listen to.

You spend time analyzing new super hero movies and can't take some cheesy prog? I thought you EU folks were open minded.

Are you kidding me? It turns into the cheesiest thing I've heard in a long time in just over 1 minute.

I've written a short comment on three super hero movies my sister wanted me to watch. That's me being open minded. I'd rather just not watch any of them!

Most progressive rock works on me like garlic on a vampire. I'm still not able to cope with it at all.

Yes are brilliant but you have to accept their distinctive approach to melody first. Close To The Edge (the album) is so highly regarded even outside of prog circles that Pitchfork gives it a perfect score. And those guys despise most prog with a passion.

That being said, maybe you'd appreciate their stuff more being covered with some attractive female vocalists.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Yes. The music is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the lyrics will go over a typical listener's head. There's also the group's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into their performance- their personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these tracks, to realise that they're not just cool- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Yes truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Close to the Edge's existential catchphrase "down by the river," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Chris Squire's genius wit unfolds itself on their speakers. What fools.. how I pity them.
