Re: “Greg Lake

I'm going to chime in here one more time. What I'm sensing is two camps,
you're in either one or the other. Enjoying one genre of music doesn't
have to negate the enjoyment of another. They are not all mutually
exclusive. There are very talented musicians in every generation. The
art form doesn't die out with the generation you grew up in. To say
there is nothing of merit being made today is to be every bit as narrow
as the reviewer. The industry has changed, that's for certain, and is
probably why the consensus is so poor regarding modern music. Find a
different avenue. If you detect big money, run the other way. You can
find many musical acts with much to offer, maybe not all with the rare chops
of our guys in ELP but still they are searching and finding their own way to
make glorious sounds. They are drawing from the past, too, whether
they're aware of it or not. Their sounds may seem foreign, their tools
frighteningly newfangled but what was the Moog? Think of the spirit
behind King Crimson. Driven by creativity, not cash. That spirit still
exists if you know where to find it. Clue: it's not in the top ten.

You're not wrong in defending progressive rock. I'm just saying it's a
much richer life if you can find something good in both what came before
and what came after.

Re: “Greg Lake

To use sciolism and virtuosic in the same sentence describing the same musicians is a bit contradictory. Whether or not it's your cup of tea you cannot deny the extreme skill and the willingness to experiment ELP possessed.
Each person constructs their own unique taste- mostly informed by collective exposures to music during their lifetime. The rest is just mystery, of course. Therefore, I will assume that you are still building your foundation. I will say, however, that I am glad that through the shallow, murky pool of your musical experience Greg Lake's talents came shining through like a beacon lit on your ears.
In time, you will see how this music you deride has come to alter and form the musical lineage of your lifetime. Open your ears and enjoy the ride.
