Hello, today the 20th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock. At the time I was still more interested in better popmusic and this looked to intelektual for me, pretentious wasn't in my vocabulary yet, maybe it was the fans that were drooling over it, anyway i kept my distance then. Nothing to dance to..
Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accomodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.
The key components to every great prog-rock album comprise memorable guitar riffs, punchy immediacy that draws you into the song, ample rhythmic kick, and the imaginative capacity to transport the listener to a place well beyond the confines of reality. This album features all of these rare qualities and more, the 1971 record as significant for saving the band’s career as well as for establishing new parameters in virtuosic technicality and skilled composition. The first set recorded with guitarist Steve Howe, it remains the band's grandest achievement and claims a musical vision the British quintet’s contemporaries struggled to match. Combined with Squire’s flexible bass lines, Howe’s inventive solos and acoustic tuckpointing, Bruford’s restrained thunder, and Jon Andersen’s poetic words, and it seems inevitable that The ? Album could’ve been anything other than a smash success. The record’s memorable tracks still orbit today’s radio playlists and sports stadiums.
