and not by using too much CGIs! even worse!
here's a piece of prog-rock that almost defies description. I had never heard of it until I was looking for "Reflections of a Rock Superhero" (more on that, later) but while discussing that with Mr. Owari, Christopher Elam, he mentioned some sort of "progressive rock" album about the Marvel Superheroes.
naturally I was intrigued, but being no fan of prog-rock at all, I was not expecting much.
and I sure didn't get even that. take the worst of Yes, Jethro Tull, the Moody Blues and mix 'em up and you get this, "The Marvel World of Icarus". released in 1972, this English band manages to make listening to songs about superheroes just an excruciating experience. when compared to the awesome theme songs the Japanese heroes got, it gets even worse.
I mean, really, whoever thought the flute was a rock instrument? and it's in every damn song! does the Hulk make you think "flute solo"?
oh yes, Chris, you will be getting a copy of this.
now I have to listen to the 60s theme songs for Marvel heroes, since that should wash all this prog-crap out of my ears. I'm really glad I never knew about this as a kid... it might have some nostalgic value, as I am sure I would have wanted a copy of it. I might have liked prog-rock!
