The Dividing Line / ANNOUNCEMENT: Progopolis Schedule Change
« on: February 04, 2012, 09:35:19 am »
February 4, 2012

In order to give our listeners a more reliable broadcasting schedule, and in order to allow us to keep the show alive while continuing our efforts at fostering something of a respectable social life, Progopolis will henceforth be heard on the last Saturday of every month. The next episode is scheduled for Saturday, February 25 (or 25 February, for those of you existing in countries where the DD/MM calendar is observed). Expect some exciting changes to begin with the next episode, including the infusion of more experimental music into the mix of standard progressive rock, and a new "Desert Island Discs" show centerpiece that will likely thrill as well as confound. In the meantime, be sure to check out the archives of past shows at

The Top 20 Albums of 2011

Would you believe it? 2011 was another great year for music, making it even harder for us to narrow down our list of choices for the 20 best albums. Being natural born "list makers" didn't make it any easier, apparently. Although we'd known for quite some time that "Peak of Eternal Light" by Moonbound was probably going to be our number one choice, some last-minute discoveries and fabulous late December releases forced us to make some painful decisions – like pushing Van Der Graaf Generator, Trey Gunn, Opeth, and John Wetton out of contention. We're kidding about the Wetton. But not about the rest. We hope you'll agree with the majority of our choices, although we know there's not a snowball's chance in hell that anyone will agree with them all. Thanks to all of the wonderful artists who helped make 2011 an unforgettable year.

The 50 Most Underappreciated Guitarists of All Time, Part 3

Spurred by the criminal negligence displayed in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list, we decided to take matters into our own hands and make things right. The latest episode of Progopolis serves as the final chapter of a 3-part series counting down the people who we consider to be the most underappreciated, overlooked and ignored guitarists of all time. Who made it into our top 10? Who will be our number 1 choice? You'll have to listen to the podcast to find out, but the good news is there's plenty of great music to absorb as you work your way toward the ultimate revelation. This episode of Progopolis also features our traditional Holiday broadcast of the Progopolis-exclusive track “Jingle Bell Prog” featuring Bobby Helms, Steven Wilson, Adrian Belew, Fish, and Shawn Bishop. We hope you agree with our selections! If not, drop us a line and let us know and we'll include your suggestions on a future episode tentatively titled “Axe Gods: Oversights and Omissions.”

The 50 Most Underappreciated Guitarists of All Time, Part 2

On the latest episode of Progopolis, we continue the countdown for our selection of the 50 most underappreciated, underrated, and generally overlooked guitarists in the world and deliver a spiteful "Take THAT, Rolling Stone!" to the creators of the top 100 list that inspired the theme. If you're dying to find out who our top 10 choices will be, make sure to tune in live on Saturday, December 17, where we'll perform the last great reveal and quite possibly deliver a shock to your senses so severe that it'll take you weeks to recover. You've been warned! This week's episode also features music from the exciting debut release by Hess & Franzen.

In response to Rolling Stone's recent 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time list, which criminally ignored some of the most important guitarists in recent memory and added insult to injury by listing many that don't even deserve mention, we decided to come up with our own. The latest episode of Progopolis represents part 1 of a 3-part series counting down the individuals who we consider to be the 50 most underappreciated, underrated, and generally overlooked guitarists in rock and prog history. Some of our choices may cause you to scratch your chin, others to pump your fists in agreement. Hopefully, our decision to force you to listen to the podcast to discover our choices won't tick you off too much. Besides, spoilers suck! This episode of Progopolis also features the world premiere of a track from the forthcoming album by GRICE, as well as a brand new track from Kate Bush's recently released 50 Words For Snow.

"What is Post Rock?"

According to Wikipedia, the definition of post rock is "A subgenre of progressive rock characterized by the influence and use of instruments commonly associated with rock music, but using rhythms and guitar textures not traditionally found in rock. Post rock musicians typically produce instrumental music." This is a pretty broad definition that's led many to continue to ask the question: WTF is post rock, anyway? In this episode, we endeavor to answer that question. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Artists & Music / The return of that totally awesome 80s pop-prog sound
« on: September 03, 2011, 01:57:00 pm »
New album by Moonbound heralds the return of that totally awesome 80s pop-prog sound.

I’m just going to throw this out there. Moonbound’s Peak of Eternal Light is one of the best damn albums I’ve heard in years. And I have a feeling that if you heard it, you might say the same thing. Of course now that I’ve made such a pronouncement, you’ll probably expect me to back it up with a bunch of frilly adjectives and literary dissections of every track on the album. If that’s the case, you’ll be disappointed. Partly because I can’t stand it when people do that, but mostly because doing so would be a disservice to an album that accomplishes something so many fail at: being greater than the sum of its parts.
