Ambient and Progressive

Ambient Rock and Progressive Rock Music Albums 

This is an attempt of a comparison between ambient rock music album and progressive rock music album. 

They may seem in some ways perhaps different but they both share at least one thing in common in that for one, they are a fusion of more than one style of a kind of music and style, two, they are pioneers in the frontiers of making music that is not easily categorized,nor  is easy to define although they are given the names ambient rock music and progressive rock music. 

They seem like two different avenues stretching through a town not necessarily crossing but in and around the same vicinity. 

A lot of albums are sort of amazing in that there is a theme usually or at least a progression from the beginning to the end of each album. A lot of times we can hear a song we like but may be in the dark of truly lies on the rest of the album. A lot of progressive rock albums are full of themes or they have some kind of concept or rather their entire album might be conceptual. It seems to follow the music and the usual kind of prowess of their instruments and technique and music theory that provides the ammunition to make an album a conceptual album from it’s beginning to it’s end. At least their might be themes within each song wether or not the entire album is conceptual. 

Ambient Rock might also vary between having an album a conceptual album or wether the songs are more of a collection of individual songs and sounds. Where as Ambient rock music might focus on sound and ambience and atmosphere, progressive rock might focus more on the actual notes and as well chords that are played. 

An ambient music artist might be the main decision maker in a band though it is very difficult to see behind the scene of an ambient rock music album. 

Sometimes, both ambient, ambient rock and progressive as well as progressive rock make a bit of instrumental music. Concerning this, ambient rock and progressive rock music are considered instrumental music artists all in the category of both ambient and progressive rock. 

Ambient rock and progressive rock that is also instrumental are some of the exciting and interesting of instrumental rock music. At least they have an arsenal of music, music theory and the instruments to assist them thus then depending on their technical skills for their instruments and the songwriting ability that each possesses. 

Though their are some similarities including ambient and progressive rock music there are also some differences. In some ways they may seem to have nothing to do with each other. In fact they are two streams which seem to begin close but veer away far from one another. What keeps things fresh and where they seem to be similar is in their novel approaches when they try and do things in their own way but differently as in new ambient rock music and new ambient rock artists. When a good progressive rock music album comes out and is inventive it is always a great listen but they both seem to depend on something and that may be to keep coming up with new approaches and a different and new way of creating their songs and albums. 

The similarity between new ambient rock music, ambient rock music and progressive rock music is the skill and boldness in finding new ways to make music and new ways to create their sounds. 

Once a kind of array of sounds exists both for ambient and progressive rock music, sometimes it’s hard to veer away from it, because it is a signature or brand if you will for each kind of music. There are exceptions, but that is one thing keeps a band or artist bonded to their created kind of sound. That being the case, still in terms of songwriting there is also a bounded phenomena but in both case their are exceptions where a band can and does break free of any not needed constraints.
