Those two genres of rock, Progressive Rock and Psychedelic Rock, are the weird dudes in the bunch of popular hard rock, metal, and punk genres.
I consider Progressive rock as the nerdy geek of the crowd, while Pshychedelic stands out as just the junkie that lives on acid.
They're often looked down on because of their weird sounds, but lets admit it, we all love them.

As far as I know, there are tons of Rush, Pink Floyd, and Dream Theatre fans in this forum, and some Hendrix, Cream, and Jefferson Airplane fans.
Which genre do you prefer more?

I'm just getting into Prog Rock.
I was sorta disappointed by the Dark Side of the Moon, but people keep telling me that I'll love it eventually.
I listen to Rush from time to time, I love their catchy techno geek sounds and how the band dresses...
I have no interest in dream theatre at the moment, but the Chili Peppers, kinda prog rock, is becoming interesting.

For Psychedelic rock, I love it.
The genre is basically in decline since the 70s, but I love Cream because they don't sound like any other band in this universe.
It makes me dizzy at times, and it's good when you want to chillax.

I wouldn't call the chili peppers prog rock. Just alternative.

You'd probably like Ataxia though.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.
#3
of the two I'd have to say a mostly like psychedelic rock. the only prog band I really like is Pink Floyd and they sort of blur the boundary between the two genres

Dude, if you want an amazing pink floyd album get animals or the wall. the wall takes a little time to catch on but they are both outstanding. Btw, I wouldn't call progressive rock geeky, I'd call it more artsy than anything. Prog rock is about experimentation and psychadelic rock is about being trippy.

The Wall really isn't progressive or psychedelic, it's more stadium rock. It's definitely an incredible story and awesome album, but for more psychedelic I'd suggest Saucerful of Secrets.

Dude, if you're getting into Prog rock, you gotta listen to An Endless Sporadic and Yes. Also try King Crimson. You might like Coheed and Cambria, but they are like a mix of alternative and prog, so try them.

Dark Side of The Moon is one of most favorite albums, it grows on you. I love Psychedelic, 60's early 70's era.

Cream isn't really psychedelic rock, psychedelic rock is more like Strawberry Alarm Clock, Jefferson Airplane and 13th Floor Elevators.

It is Psychedelic rock, they and the Jimi Hendrix Experience were the two great forerunners of the genre in Britain.

They where precursors to Psychedelic rock, but they both actually played Blues Rock.

Agreed, but Jimi's music does have a lot of psychedelic nuances in it.

However, Jimi was a blues player at heart.

I like the way you think... Cream were, in my opinion, the tightest and best sounding band of the time, and had the most talented musicians.

I love psychedelic rock though

True, but a lot of Cream's music was psychedelic in nature as well as blues rock.

Understand that most bands don't have a single genre that defines them, unless they're the Sex Pistols, which is obviously punk.
Led Zeppelin isn't just hard rock is it?
NO, it's folk, celtic, regge, blues, psychedelic, arabic, eastern, and many others.
