How stupid is it to assert that prog is the whitest music ever, and then profess a love for punk, which is even whiter?

He may look like a douchebag, but that doesn't outdo his fine work as Peter Brady in A Very Brady Christmas.

The trapped, eunuch ferocity of Geddy Lee’s voice, squealing inside the nonsense clockwork of Rush, disturbs me...

Oh my.
I wouldn't worry too much about the opinion of someone who writes for a living but can't tell an adjective from a noun.

Writers and music reviewers like this guy (and many film reviewers as well) write with a lot of condescension -- like they're better and smarter than the band/genre/film they're writing about, and especially smarter then the people who like it. It's like, "You nerds don't get it because you're not as smart and cool as me. Allow me to enlighten and belittle you while I use a lot of 20-point Scrabble words." Meanwhile, it's usually the reviewer who doesn't get it. Prog is over this guys head -- he can't follow along with it, so he bashes it.

Time to give "Close to the Edge" and "Hemispheres" a spin.

Hell yes!

'Hemispheres" "All Night Long!"

Prog Rock isn't the whitest music ever made.  It's for nerds and intellectuals of all colors and creed.

I think Living Colour is progressive hard rock metal pop funk soul!

FUKK THAT DOUCHE!

We who are aware and awake to all quality music certainly have the "Cult Of Personality."

I know I do.

NO FEAR!!  MORE BEER!

That's a punk reference children.

I thought of this yesterday. How can progressive rock be the "whitest music" when centuries of 100% white European medieval, baroque, classical, and romantic music exists?
