Are you surprised? Headache only posts about The Who, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Pearl Jam. He probably hasn't changed radio stations in years.

Not surprised, but certainly irritated that he would make such a ludicrously hyperbolic claim without a shred of irony.

I like Nerve Net too. Fractal Zoom is certainly a close relative to One Minute Warning. Here Come The Warm Jets and Before and After Science are my faves.

These different levels of irony are getting to be a bit much.

So it's only okay to hate something if your hatred is ironic? Would it be better if he adopted a painfully pretentious and unnecessarily verbose posting style to comment on everything? If you want to call headache a hypocrite on his tendency to offer his negative opinion on bands/ artists he doesn't like when he's just as likely to flip out on people who say they dislike something he likes, that's fine.

It's fine to "hate" whatever you want. Coming into an appreciation thread and summarily and casually dismissing the work of the artist with absolutely no explanation is just asinine.

Okay... I find Brian Eno's solo work, and a large majority of prog rock, to be pretentious bullshit. Does that work for you?

Yea. That's all. I don't even own a radio.

You forgot Nickleback, Creed and Train.

Umm... thanks?

I'd love to see examples of "flipping out" when people mock bands I like. Really. I would.

I don't find Here Come The Warm Jets to be especially proggy.

The closest Eno ever got to prog was allowing Robert Fripp to play on some tunes.

Tunes that were by no means prog rock, like St. Elmo's Fire and Golden Hours.

I can certainly see people finding the ambient or later material to be too artsy, but Warm Jets and Tiger Mountain have more energy and humor than what I would generalize with prog rock.

I mean, this is essentially doo-wop, no?
