Prog rock!!

Length does not automatically equal greatness.

He released the album New Morning in '71. Not one of his most notable albums for sure, but it features "If Not For You" and one of my favorite lesser-known Dylan tunes, "The Man In Me" (best known for its appearance in The Big Lebowski, probably, though also covered by the Clash).

I had no idea that '71 was that good of a year. I can't think of a better year off the top of my head, though if I did, I'd guess it certainly wouldn't be too recent. 1987 featured the release of two of my favorite albums, The Joshua Tree and the Pixies' Come On Pilgrim, but I'd have to do more research on that before I could give a better answer.

Edit: '87 was a very good year for music, but still doesn't compare to '71

Oh look, someone who doesn't understand what progressive rock is about. Moving on. 1971 was a great year. 1979 wasn't too bad either. Albums released in '79:

Pink Floyd - The Wall
The Clash - London Calling
Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Supertramp - Breakfast In America
The Police - Reggatta De Blanc
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door
The Who - The Kids Are Alright

Some good singles released that year as well in a variety of genres. Disco, on the whole, sucked a lot, but who can forget I Will Survive (technically '78 but it was released late in the year), Tragedy or Voulez-Vous?



1977 is another favourite year. Great albums released in '77.

Pink Floyd - Animals
Television - Marquee Moon
Queen - News Of The World
David Bowie - Low
Supertramp - Even In The Quietest Moments
The Clash - The Clash
Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True
The Alan Parsons Project - I Robot

Etc. The 70s were just fantastic in general.

That's a rather silly reason to dismiss an entire genre of music.

I thought it was anti-everything.

Apples and oranges I say.

I like the fact that when Malcolm McLaren first spotted Johnny Rotten when the sex pistols were being formed, Rotten was wearing an 'I hate pink floyd' t-shirt. I find that mildly amusing.

However, that kind of t-shirt won't go down particularly well on this message board

Do you know what I find mildly amusing? The Sex Pistols only wrote one album and it isn't even any good. The Clash were about a million times better than the Sex Pistols. And so were Pink Floyd. Believe it or not, it is possible to enjoy punk and progressive rock at the same time!!!!111!

blueeyedgirl, not all progressive rock sounds like Yes. In fact, most prog rock bands are drastically (and I mean DRASTICALLY) different from one another. If you are basing your disdain for the genre on one keyboard player, then I really don't know what to say.

I've been enjoying quite a bit of Pink Floyd of late actually, it's a lot better than most of the 3 chord punk bands that came out in the late 70's. However, there are times when the progressiveness of it just annoys me. I.e. Time by Pink Floyd, fantastic song, but does it really need those first 2 and half minutes?

Anyway, this has kinda meandered off topic...

Yeah, I know, sorry about that. That initial (completely off topic) post about prog rock just peeved me off because progressive rock is NOT about song length. It's also not about being arrogant or showing off. But anyway, if you're enjoying the Floyd but are turned off by the 'progressive' sound effects, you should check out 1972's Obscured By Clouds. Fantastic album with beautiful melodies. Probably their most un-prog album. "Wot's...Uh The Deal", "Childhood's End" and "Free Four" are brilliant.



Back on topic. 1967 was great. Some albums:

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Doors - The Doors
The Doors - Strange Days
Cream - Disraeli Gears

Lots of fantastic singles from that year as well. Here's just a few.

The Doors - Light My Fire
The Beatles - Baby You're A Rich Man
Pink Floyd - Arnold Layne
Pink Floyd - See Emily Play
Simon & Garfunkel - Scarborough Fair
The Who - I Can See For Miles
Aretha Franklin - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman (I'm personally not a fan of this song or this genre, but I recognise its importance to music in general)
Aretha Franklin - Respect (see above)
