My $.02.  Prog rock is the greatest thing to ever happen to rock music and is truly one of the great art forms...

care to comment?  

I don't like Prog other than King Crimson. Arguably, RIO music has been more progressive musically than most 'progressive' rock has. Bands like Henry Cow, Univers Zero, Blast, etc, have far more to offer than generic Genesis, or ELP crap.

What the derp is "progressive rock"?  Musical genres make absolutely no sense.  I mean, I have yet to figure out what "industrial" is, and I'm not going to even bother figuring out what the derp "house" is supposed to be.

The name Industrial came from "Industrial Records", created by a confrontational electronic group, Throbbing Gristle. The name stuck to a wide variety of bands, and ultimately got taken over by lame dance music.

Prog rock is stuff like Pink Floyd. Long songs, lots of guitar solos etc. Tongue

Floyd wasn't prog. Smiley

Anyone got any recommendations for good blues music?

Electric, or acoustic?

For acoustic blues, check out Skip James, Son House, Robert Johnson, and Mississippi John Hurt.

Industrial isn't always lame dance music though.  I wouldn't consider NIN dance music lol.

I wouldn't consider any of Trent Reznor's music industrial at all.

Soundgarden and people claim it is metal. Ugh.

Soundgarden's Ultramega OK, Louder Than Love pretty much sound like Black Sabbath revisited. Their most metal song, "4th Of July" is on Superunknown. Smiley

I agree about that, too. It's just a shame both albums were terrible.

Unpopular Winston Disraeli Music Opinion .2 - A Tribute to Jack Johnson is better than Bitches Brew (Miles Davis)

Agreed.

There is strong stigma against this in metal, & you see humorous things, like Megadeth becoming more pop over the course of the 1990s & then returning to an older style in the early 2000s.

I think it's justified, certainly. Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Cryptopsy, all turned into commercial oriented bands, and the music definitely suffered.

On the other hand, a band like Gorguts cemented their legacy by going into a completely different direction, and rupturing eardrums by going more extreme than any death metal act before.

Slayer makes it to your worst list, but Oasis is on your good one?

     It took you that long to figure that out? Tongue

I was suspicious, but this was the final straw-nail that broke the camel coffin.

Opinion of Something Corporate.

Quite terrible. Like if you took the worst traits of Morrissey, and threw in that guy from Dashboard, plus the light piano stylings of Billy Joel, and maybe Generation-X era Billy Idol.

Skinny Puppy ranked best to worst:
Too Dark Park
Last Rights
VIVIsectVI
Rabies
Cleanse, Fold and Manipulate
The Process
Bites
Mythmaker
Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse
The Greater Wrong of the Right

I don't generally take offense to people's lists because, you know, it's your own thing, but there's no way in hell Mythmaker is better than Mind, or Cleanse, Fold better than The Process. It makes my mind esssplode.

(Haven't heard Back & Forth yet, or Remix Dys Temper... that's supposed to be sh-t though, so that will be enjoyable Tongue )

Those Brap collections are really for the most diehard of fans. Some b-sides, outtakes, live stuff, remixes, and what not. If you're really into them, I think you should check them out. The remix thing isn't too bad. Mark Walk did a great job, out of a few of the better tracks on there.

Ministry ranked best to worst:
Psalm 69
Land of Rape and Honey
The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste
Filth Pig
Twitch

(Haven't heard the rest yet)

I think Al Jourgensen's most creative peak (that's not embarassing) is Twitch. The Land of Rape and Honey, like most of his other albums, suffer from being spotty. It's Big Black with samples, essentially, and some really good bass playing on the part of Paul Barker. Post Filth Pig is pretty much garbage, except "Animositisomina". It's his last good hurrah, and definitely noise rock, not big dumb metal like the rest of his stuff.

My rank, essentially comes down to:

Twitch
Animositisomina
Land of Rape and Honey
The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tied with Psalm 69
.
.
.
.
.
.
Filth Pig
Dark Side of the Spoon
With Sympathy
Houses of the Molé
Rio Grande Blood
The Last Sucker
Cover Up

Anyone else here like (or even know of) The Gerogerigegege?

I really like Tokyo Anal Dynamite. Nice, unoffensive rock.

KMFDM ranked (albums I've heard so far):
Nihil
Angst
Naive
WWIII

I think you'd like Symbols. Ogre from Skinny Puppy is on one or two tracks.
