Hi Stephen,

I think it's just that people look for different things in their music, and you may just be a little too song orientated for the likes of Eloy or early FM. Sometimes with prog the arrangement becomes more important than following the rules of the song.
I think I lean more towards Eric's way of thinking, especially where bands like Angel are concerned. White Hot is also my least favourite. I like most of the songs but it was too radical a change from Tower and The Fortune which had great arrangements (as did stuff like Just A Dream and Cast The First Stone).
I have a friend who likes early Kansas but finds some of the instrumental workouts in the middle of songs like Cheyenne Anthem totally pointless. I think it was this unpredictability that made them so appealing to me. Different strokes I suppose.

Take care,
