Prog Rock gets it's come-uppance!
5 September 2007 | by andyjmr-1See all my reviews

A hilarious trot through the archives of 70's progressive rock, masterfully compèred by Bill Bailey, with witty commentary by Mark Radcliffe. Counting down the Top 10 prog rock bands of all time, the pomp and pomposity of the genre is revealed in all it's gloriously overblown indulgence, without ever resorting to caustic derision. The likes of King Crimson, ELP, Yes, Genesis, and Pink Floyd, are gently brought to task for their excessive on-stage antics, interminable guitar solos, unfathomable lyrics, concept albums, and costumes. it was all over too quickly for my liking, as i could have watched it all night, but nevertheless this will give much humour to those of us who were never fans of the genre, and i imagine, a lot of chuckles to those who were.
