I think you nailed it when you mentioned them taking the best bits of other stuff. I think it's fine doing that if you can do something interesting with them and in this case I don't think they do because to me they just sound like your average 90s/00s rock band influenced by that sort of stuff.

I'm sure this will go down real well but I find this stuff to be basically musak with guitars.
I can't blame you for not liking them, you would have shocked the hell out of me if you did.

I can understand the main criticism of Porcupine Tree, while I don't consider them to be an imitation of anybody, their sound isn't too "unique". But I don't think that takes away from the quality of their music in any way. At least in my opinion.

I can't say how important a band PT will be in the future, or the impact they will have on this so called prog revival. PT have gotten pretty popular and are getting younger people interested in prog rock, so I'm very happy about that.

But I think what we really need is a band that can completely reinvent the genre of prog. The Mars Volta have come closer to this than anyone else, but everyone hates them, hipsters and proggies alike. Tis a shame because I think they're great, but it's to be expected when you mix two completely different styles like prog and punk together. The funny thing with prog fans is, they praise progressive rock for how revolutionary and innovative it was at it's conception, but today you won't even be considered prog if you're too innovative.

PT aren't innovative, they're just good, and they're just original enough, so they keep prog fans happy. Though I must admit I'm a bit suprised by how well recieved they are by prog fans because they usually whine like bitches whenever a band blends prog with pop, as Porcupine Tree does. But I think people are starting to miss the point of what prog actually is. Prog was very innovative in the early 70s, but then everything became rather cliche after that and by 80s until now any "true" prog band is expected to not really do anything different from the prog bands of the 70s, tis a shame.

Sorry guys, internet being down + Uni is a pain.

Porcupine Tree have failed to be nominated, next up is a nom from Alfred.



At The Drive-In

At The Drive-In was one of the most influencial bands of the 1990's, and seemed to get better with every album they recorded. Their lyrics were cryptic and metaphoric, and their music was intense and emotional. Their final album was praised by many reviewers. Guitar World ranked it number 94 on thier list of 100 Greatest Guitar Albums Of All Time, and Spin Magazine ranked it number 83 on their 100 Greatest Albums of 1985 - 2005. Their sound ranged from simple Indie Rock to intense, emotional Post-Hardcore. Their sound was truly unique. At The Drive-In broke up in 2001, and formed two separate bands, The Mars Volta, and Sparta, the former which has recieved much critical acclaim.

No

Only made one album that was really worth anything & they spilt up without even trying to top it.

All a bit too flash in the pan to be in any hall of fame in my opinion.
