Some of the earlier stuff was ok, I don`t mind some early King Cimson or Van Der Graaf Generator but when bands like Genesis, Emerson Lake & Palmer & Yes came along it just turned into pretentious self indulgent twaddle.

I`d rather burn in hell than listen to a Rick Wakeman solo album

Agreed but Tool I think has done a really great job with making it a serious art form and not a lite rock scale-fest. Prog also is a loose term (as is all musical boundries) and so its hard to know what you'd consider prog, would Frank Zappa be prog, I'd say so on some songs. Is rush? I find them appealing.

21st Century Schizoid man it think is one of the best songs I've ever heard, and King Crimsons Schizm is really adept as well.

I`ve never really liked Tool to be honest.

It`s almost like they`re trying too hard to be angry & serious.

Does absolutly nothing for me

After that yawn factory known as APC's emotive, I think Maynard needs to write an apology letter to the fan in reference in the song "hooker with a penis." Im getting a sense of where theyre headed, and if it werent for Danny Carey and Opiate, I honestly wouldn't give a flying fuk about what they have to put out.

So you think there best disc is the one that isn't even full length, and you picked the guy who once was in green jelly.

You can tell the kids begging for credibility a mile away. And there just as bad as the kids who listen to nickleback, cause there doing the same thing just in the opposite direction. You stick to your anti-anything thats good attitude. Thats why they write songs like hooker with a penis, cause your just as bad as what you rally against.
