    What I mean is that the intention of the artists back then was "let's just create some beautiful awe inspiring music." Later, it became, "lets create music that will be filtered into this marketing/historic genre of prog rock." Not saying that these people didn't accomplish something spectacular if others think its so. More power to them. My personal tastes are all over the world map when it comes to music, and I get something from 70s prog and a few later bands like Magma and Yes more or less were consistent. But what my heart feels as great music from the heart could be almost any genre these days. It's about a message, like the way long distance runaround felt to me as a 8 year old, I might get from a totally obscure private press record that they made 200 copies of. I think intellectually I'm stimulated more by classical music and my own music. I think perhaps these people are intellectually stimulated by working in the prog genre.

    I have no problem admitting that younger people may like newer prog in a way that I may not be able to, and there isn't necessarily a quality difference between the old and new. (I am all for creating a system that makes people less ornery as they age).
