Dude! How can you make a prog thread and don't even pin progarchives? fixed for ya
Now, i have no issues with KC, Yes and Kansas being on the the list but Closer to Home? A Night at the Opera? Out of the Blue? To call those prog is a stretch; those are, respectively: radio-friendly 70's rock, symphonic pop rock and disco. But then again, the term "progressive rock" encapsulates so many different genres that i have no doubt someone would consider those a part of such.
Anyway, adding one that was brought to my attention recently:
Decent folk act if i may say so. The person who suggested this one is kinda of a slippery asshole - not complaining, though.. i developed a liking for such assinine kind.
Much respect to Slash though. Never cared for Axl.
Now here's some good progressive rock I don't know how well known this group is but it's not on the digital jukebox systems at bars.
Thomas the Rhymer, Seven Hundred Elves, and Edwin are probably the best three tracks.
There's some later edition called Now We Are Six Again but it seems to be missing something despite extra additions within its tracks.
Although there's a couple tracks on the album I skip. (I really don't need to hear Twinkle Little Star. Usually just stop it once that song comes on.) Gotta love the sound of a great bassist on a good sound system, where you can feel those notes being plucked on the instrument rather than the usual mindless bass beat, or dumbass rock groups or producers editing out much of the bassist. (Screw you, Lars Ulrich, total douchebag.)
