Not one, not two, but three prog-lovin’ critics lace into Rob Sheffield’s New York Times review of Yes is the Answer (And Other Prog Rock Tales), a new critical anthology about prog rock edited by Marc Weingarten and Tyson Cornell. Check out Phil Freeman in Running the Voodoo Down, Rick Koster in The Day, and Glenn Kenny in Some Came Running.
I actually agree with some of the criticisms here (not all, but some), but if this means it’s no longer acceptable to crack “Return of the Giant Hogweed” jokes, sorry Proglodytes — that’s a bridge I just refuse to cross.
But on a more serious note, what do you think?
