I would say Primus is experimental or progressive as the less hip say.

Lobo, I was shocked by Johns vicious attack on your lists.

I surrender....as I said before, clearly keyboards means progressive. Dread listed a lot of albums I just considered rock music. They were certainly leading music into new directions, and thus guys like Devo and The Cars should be included.

Queensryche was my favorite band for quite a while, but in addition to Mindcrime, I'd put The Warning on the very-short list.

I hadn't head the term "Progressive Rock" until a year ago, actually, and was suprised to learn I grew up with it. It seems most "classic" rock is also "progressive" rock.

Prog rock/metal is characterized by a classical influence, and uses intricate harmonies and repeating themes (like classical music.) Iron Maiden, especially the later stuff, is prog metal. I think most of Dio's work qualifies too. Queensryche, definately. I was asking around on another forum for modern bands in a similar vein, and was told about "Hammers of Misfortune". The group's got a few members of GWAR (another band I've not listened to much), and sounds pretty good. They've also got a female vocalist- unusual for metal bands. Check 'em out on iTunes if you like prog metal and have a chance.

Oh, apparently they've signed with a record label, which will be re-releasing some of their older albums. Should be interesting.

Some other new catagories of music are "heritage", "jam band", and "adult alternitive". My opinion of "progressive rock" is rock music that is not "regressive". I will not name any regressive music, because I don't want to get into an argument, but there's lots of it out there.

I've heard of almost all of them, and I've only met one person before that's heard of Sonia Dada. I really dig those guys, very interesting sound they have going on.

Looks like you're a big fan of Dylan and The Band. Do you recognize the house in this picture?

That's an easy question because a picture of the house was on the Band's first album.

Sonia Dada is a great little known Chicago group, and I loveem. I fear that they are no longer together, but here is a little ditty that they sang.

Radiohead

as a certified pink floyd fan, I'd have to say Dark Side was not progressive, compared to their other works. I would say ummagumma or relics are more progressive.

Check out Sinergy for a great metal band with an amazing female singer. In particular, I'd suggest "I Spit On Your Grave."

Surprised no one has mentioned-
Dream Theatre: Images and Words

Smashing Pumpkins: Mellons and stuff with the long stuff and such. (Not actual title)

I hate to say it but Tool's early stuff.

I have to admit, prog ain't my favorite genre so I don't know a ton about it.

I had a complete collection of moody blues records, but I sold my records, and now I have just my iTunes file, and my ipod as my music collection. There are no boody blues on my ipod because I tried to put only the music that I will listen to on it, and I have no desire to listen to music just because it is nestalgic. You can judge what is a keeper, and what is just another old song for youself, but I don't want my ipod to gather any dust. IMHO

I should have specified Images and Words. I vividly remember the first time I heard "Pull Me Under" Holy crap! They also do the most amazing covers.

They do at that. I played a Petrucci Music Man once, sweet guitar. Best. Action. Ever. Have a couple of his books too. He's been an influence. He's my uncle's favorite guitarist, and my uncle is one of my favorite guitarists, so it's trickle down musicology.
