    Well pretentious is just a buzz word you can throw around to discredit anything that uses three syllable words...I don't think it's pretentious when you can easily see what they're talking about and relate to it emoitonally

    besides, man, it's hard to ignore dt's lyrics...the bad jumps out at you. just saying.

    Fair enough. :) And, I have been using pretentious to discredit anything and everything in my path years before it was a buzz word.

    Sounds like you guys have a different opinion of prog.

    Do yourself a favor and check out anything by the bands listed below.

    ZOMBI
    Magma from France
    Ostric Tentacles

    This shit will blow you away.

    Im like baffled as to why these bands were not mentioned yet sheez.

    That's *Ozric.

    Too meandering, unfocused for my taste. Would probably sound good as background music.

    For some reason I see Magma as more funny than anything. Now THAT'S a band I wouldn't be offended if someone called pretentious. Some of their stuff's really interesting, though.

    Well, at least they are pretty original. Plus the drumming is just out there. They have good songs, and then just some wierd ones.
    I really dig it when they peak out from building up from some super crazy tempos.

    They're an interesting band. It just puts me off when bands act as if they have some sort of mission to reveal their own genius to the world. Maybe I'm just getting the wrong impression.

    Nah, that's a pretty accurate impression for most of the pretentious prog world.
