Progressive music is an approach to music that can be applied to several different musical genres. The dictionary meanings of the word "progressive" summarize the approach often taken by musicians working in a "progressive style": (1) moving forward; advancing. (2) proceeding in steps; continuing steadily by increments: progressive change. As of the early 2000s, it is most often used to describe styles of electronic dance music, but can also be applied to the styles of progressive rock and progressive metal. As a whole, progressive records tend to be less conventional than other styles of electronic music and rock. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_music [Sept 2005]
Progressive rock is a broad and convergent style of rock music and progressive music which arose in the late 1960s, reaching the peak of its popularity in the early 1970s, but continuing as a musical form to this day. Progressive rock is often closely identified with other styles of music such as experimental music, symphonic rock, art rock and progressive metal.
Progressive rock artists sought to move away from the limitations of the radio formated rock, mainly its cyclic structure, favoring a progressive one (hence the term "progressive"). Progressive rock is often wrongly percieved as complex and elaborate music, requiring a high level of musicianship from the artists, mainly because of the impression left by some of the most popular progressive bands. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_rock
