If you have nothing good to say, say nothing. This is my firm belief. No matter how rude people are on the big ol' Internet, I try to remain positive at all times. That's why I tend to review only music I'm exited about and only post comments on YouTube videos that I like. I just can't be bothered with crap, really.
However, some things do bother me. A lot of things, actually. For once, I want to speak my mind about a couple of practices in my beloved niche of progressive rock
, that have either recently crept in or have been going on for ages. These things confuse me, annoy me or just tick me off. And prog musicians should stop doing it.
5 - Cut Up Epics
So, you've written a 15+ minute piece of music that goes through a lot of time and tune changes. Good for you. Way to keep the spirit of Prog alive, I say. For good measure, you've named each and every time shift differently, turning the whole thing into an amalgam of titles.
