I won't bore you with a top 10 list, but anybody have any prog rock favourites?

like, say

King Crimson: 3 of a Perfect Pair
Emerson Lake and Palmer: Take a Pebble
Rush: 2112
Muse: Knights of Cydonia


Anybody?

YES… Roundabout & All Good People
Supertramp… School & Bloody Well Right
Early ELO… pretty much all of it; even their later stuff is not too bad

My taste in music is too controversial.

You know I love you Al. Just give us a couple. Maybe your favourite Jethro Tull tune.

I've never been sure exactly what progressive rock is. So far I've seen hard rock, pop rock, and bad rock presented as progressive. Based on that I have no idea what to list.

A lot of great tracks have already been listed, I'll throw Last Chance by Shooting Star into the mix.

I only hava a couple Van Morrison on my ipod. All of those other picks have a dozen or more songs on my ipod.

I'm an old guy, and Mose Allison is a little older than I am.

Typically, progressive rock has unusual rhythms and/or song structures.

Here is a good example.

That was a great video of Rush, and "thirty days in the whole" is Humble Pie's most played song.

Okay, I cannot put Rush into the progressive catagory, they are too good of a band for that, ground breaking maybe.

I'd say Rundgren is progressive, ELP sure, Pink Floyd certainly, based on what John said. Progressive is just not a term I'm familiar with and I think that punk as defined prior to the punk movement applies. It almost seems a keyboard is what makes something progressive....I just don't know.

I am down with the Humble Pie though.

Moody Blues would be on my short list. For Tull, I'm more of a fan of their early hard rock efforts (Cross-Eyed Mary, Aqualung, etc.), though I know the hip thing is to cite Thick As a Brick. ELO is another band I like quite a bit. I never really appreciated Yes as much I probably should. I'd also put Zebra on the list.

In the progressive metal sub-genre (of either prog rock, or of metal; take your pick), I'm partial to Fates Warning and also a fan of Dream Theater.

Knights of Cydonia is an amazing tune.

Does Zeppelin's Kashmir count?
