Yeah.. by "towards" I meant "regarding," as opposed to "in favor of," but you're right... GRAMMAR NAZI!!!

Im not biased against punk rock, i dont know how i could be, since i happen to like a good deal of punk rock....The Ramones are one of my favorite bands, and Alexisonfire made a point when he said that The Ramones were so anti-progressive that they were in a way progressive themselves, dont get the wrong idea, they are not prog, rock that is progressive isnt automaticly progressive rock, sounds a little like a oxymoron there but being progressive rock isnt as simple as its title suggests.

The reasons i didnt focus very much on the punk rock communities point of view is because i didnt want to go off topic and because i didnt have enough room due to the 10000 character limit.

Still, you should notice that i never debunked the claims about prog being pretentious by saying they were not true, nor did i ever say they were true, i basicly left that to the reader to decide, since its a matter of opinion anyway.

made it seem a bit biased against punk, and sorry, I missed the part where you adressed people seeing prog as pretentious and self-indulgent.

I mention it several times, especialy when i explained the main reason prog lost its popularity in the 70s, people clearly got tired of its overexposure, the same fate that punk rock (or what is labeled as punk rock) is suffering today, its a continuing cycle.

Also the things i said about punk was not a negative subjective remark, but a objective fact, i never said being sloppy or basic was bad, but from a technical point of view most punk is basic in structure, and there are few punk musicians that would be considered "virtuoso's"...This is a undisputable fact, i never meant it as a negative remark...And i certainly didnt say that punk rock was lacking in quality because of this fact, not at all.

Don't worry. I didn't mean that you were biased at all. I was just being a grammar nazi .

Very nice. I didn't realize that there was so many genres. There needs to be one of these education thread for every forum.

^ Clean out your inbox.

since you haven't I'll request them here.

Can I have some Symphony X and Rhapsody please?

www.yousendit.com works best, unless the music is already loaded online somewhere
