Music most ahead of its time

sure, maybe a purely academic exercise, and, technically, Zager & Evans hold the title, yet ...

what do you think?

"Until the 12th of Never" is sort of open ended... and not dated...;)

Hank Williams music. His songs are still covered today. Dead at 29 but wrote more than 700 published songs. Timeless.......

i see your point, yet a bit vague, as if hedging its bets

i liked EWF's use of it in Fantasy

(and cheers, will be listening to that all night now, man, that bassline)

me? there is a track that sticks out, it was Goth, and i'm not Goth, hence the effect was more profound. yet at the time its minimalist approach, especially the guitar, stood out like a sore thumb.

ahead of its time, or just different to everything else, i dunno, not knowledgeable enough

I don't know about "most", but a lot of Nick Drake's music sounds like it could've been written yesterday..

you read my mind, i wrestled with 'most'

just different from everything else at the time, maybe?

i went with the element of competition, it's what makes us the human 'race'

Funny you should mention them...One of my Pandora stations plays that several times a day, so I probably hear that song about 10 times a week at work.

Bands/artists that I think are truly ahead of their time are:

The Residents.

DEVO. Enough said. One of the most forward-looking bands of the 70s, and stayed relevant into the next decade as well. If you listen to some of the official bootleg material on the "Hardcore DEVO" releases, much of it was recorded between 1974-1977 and still sounds ahead of its time.

Brian Eno ...essentially invented ambient music and his first two solo albums are so interesting...they could come out next year and still sound fresh and ahead of their time. Just astoundingly good pop weirdness and hookery. But they were released in 1973 and 1975. His production work is also very unique.

and finally, a criminally underrated band that existed in its original state more or less between 1976-1982.

Chrome.

Just a great, cool band full of melodies and soundscapes that sound at once catchy and alien.

Helios Creed would likely get my vote for the most face-meltingly, mind-blowingly psychedelic guitarist ever.

Oh yea..well said.... a couple of my standouts, too...great time to be a teen getting into music back then.... it was a chocolate box of the finest quality...

we didn't know what "genres" were... there was so much going on style wise... it was all music to us...

#1=Beatles. The later the album, the further ahead.

I always thought King Crimson's Discipline, Beat were years ahead of their time.

XTC, Police, Peter Gabriel, Zappa, Iggy pop, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, early Four Freshman. Joni Michell. Dixie Dreggs.
Bill Bruford's Gradually going Tornado.
Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key Of Life.
Steely Dan' Aja
