    Yup, Genesis by the end were just a soft rock band. They progressed by ditching the progressive bit. Their music still makes me wince in either form though.

    It turns out you're not the only one.

    Actually, I've tried listening to them but I just can't find anything in their music that interests me. Tell me which album is their best one and I'll give it another go.

    Don't bother unless you've got a mullet and a lot of spare time.

    Thought this was appropriate, from Planet Rock

    New music from Rush at 2:12pm with Uber-fan, Darren Redick. Enjoy! Cheers, Rob.

    Great album/song. Probably my favourite, along with Tales From Topographic Oceans. The guitar intro in Close to the Edge is orgasmic.

    Thought this thread was going to die, thank you Prog God for not letting that happen!

    Huge prog fan here. I have in fact even seen The Musical Box. Twice.

    Even released a prog album as well.

    Every Instrument, Especially Rick Wakeman's solo on the organ.

    You and I is a great song as well, especially for the acoustic guitar.

    My dad introduced me to this, he still has it on Vinyl, I am of the younger generation, but I listen to music of that era and think damn it must have been great.

    You just shut your mouth right there.

    Subdivisions, Red Barchetta, Tom Sawyer, Spirit of the Radio, Limelight... etc. Great band. Great songs.

    Prog doesn't really get any better than that imo.

    True. After I listen to that album I try hard enough not listen to anything else, that I don't spoil what will be playing in my head whole day.

    Fave prog albums.....

    Yes- ....Topographic Oceans (The Daddy!)
    Genesis - Foxtrot
    Floyd - Ummagumma (live disc)
    Rush - 2112
    ELP- Tarkus

    I always found King Crimson a little too arty, and a lot of Prog ventured too far into jazz, which is just musical masturbation for me. I also liked *****rock in small doses (Faust, Can, Neu) and the French proggers Magma made some fabulous albums in the early 70s. I was never much of a fan of the more pastoral prog of Gentle Giant or Caravan, but I always had a soft spot for the 80s New Prog of Marillion, IQ et al. Of course, by the time Rick Wakeman was doing King Arthur on ice it was all getting a little silly, and there's no room nor patience any more for 20 minute epics with cosmic lyrics performed by accomplished musicians, which is a great shame, but there's tons of the stuff from the late 60s and early 70s waiting to be re-discovered.

    Good list. Not so sure about Rush though, and I'm not a big fan of ELP, except for their first album.

    Here's mine:

    King Crimson - Larks Tounges in Aspic
    Van Der Graaf Generator - Pawn Hearts
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    Gentle Giant - Octopus
    Yes - Close to the Edge

    There's some newer bands I love as well, such as Beardfish and A.C.T.

    Recommend Samla Mammas Manna as well, for those who havn't heard them, pretty unknown I guess. Very special and unique.

    The Italian prog scene is very good as well, bands like Banco del Mutuo Soccorso And Premiata Forneria Marconi.

    Anyone not feeling anything whilst listening to this album needs put against a wall and slapped with a wet kipper.(plus neil peart thinks gavin harrison is brill so that does me!)

    CAMEL !!!! Nobody mentioned Camel yet, bit of a letdown that i can tells ya, so heres some http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vrAW...eature=related , i could easily get lost in that track if i am being honest.

    If you are talking prog you have to include Focus http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGaVUApDVuY, Zappa was mentioned on page 1 so i thought i would add some English strange and include Gong and Daevid Allen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAQYK..._ZdPTC2QbufppQ This man put me on my butt in Brixton Academy during Hawkwinds 21st Anniversary gig and all he did was run on stage with a glowing skull on a silver stick, fried my brian that night !

    Ah, totally forgot about them. Great band, and very easy-listened as well (for a prog band at least).

    Did vocals, bass and drums on that one.

    Was able to dig up the CDBaby page for it

    http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/azureth

    Quite proud of some of the stuff we did on that one, and wouldn't mind doing some prog again.

    A couple of full songs up on myspace btw (azurethmusic).

    Listening now, that's some good stuff mate! You've got a good voice, nice bass and drums as well. Was it all online, you didn't even know these guys? Pretty cool if so.

    So you're norsk then. Actually went to a prog rock festival in Oslo a few years ago, although it was so small I'm not sure if you could call it a festival. I think it was Subtacto festival or something like that, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks

    Yep, everything was done online. Lots of emails flying about across the Atlantic. Myself in Norway, one in Florida, and one in Texas.
    We actually met at a collab forum about a decade ago. Never actually met any of the guys in person.

    For a group of guys that's never even met it's not too bad I guess.

    Yeah, that's pretty amazing. How long did it take to make the album?
