    I figure we have a thread on Metal, Rap, and various other forms of music; so why not progressive rock? Fans of Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Genesis, Super Tramp, Styx, Rush, Queen, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and all the others, let's get together and talk about our favorite type of music. Fans of Progressive Metal and Soft Jazz-Rock are also more than welcomed to join. So let's get this thread started off strong with the greatest album of all time, Dark Side of the Moon.

    Why thank you.

    That's fair.

    Agreed

    I've seen it before. Love it. One of my favorite movies and one of favorite bands? How could I not have?

    Have you seen Dark Side of the Rainbow?

    Oh man, Dark Side of the Moon is one of my all-time favorties. I consider it Pink Floyd's greatest work - truly sublime in its surrealness.

    Some other prog outfits I like, and my favorite albums from their discographies, are as follows:

    Aphrodite's Child - 666
    Dream Theater - Images and Words
    King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
    Queen - A Night at the Opera
    Queensr├┐che - Operation: Mindcrime
    Styx - The Grand Illusion

    I only named the first bands that came to mind. Sorry.

    I agree with you that Dark Side of the Moon is their best album (I also believe it's the greatest ever), however, my favorite is still Wish You Were Here, then Dark Side.

    Steely Dan is another one of my favorites.

    YouTube - Steely Dan-Aja

    Their combination of R&B, Jazz, and Rock is just so chill, And the Sax solo halfway through is just pure beauty in the form of music, it's not to light where you don't notice it's existence, and it's to overpowering to the point where the song relies on it.

    My nephew is only 20 yrs-old and he listens to progessive rock like Led Zeppelin, which it really surprised me.

    I've always like Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

    I love me some Coheed and Cambria, Mars Volta and on the slightly heavier side Protest the Hero could be considered proggy.

    Then you'd really be surprised at how many Zep heads (me included) there were back when I was in high school a couple years ago. Those were the days.

    What got me into Zep was dad's old records.
    Here i was listening to Jungle Book and Kenny Rogers, until having that crazy idea of throwing one of his vinyls on my mickey mouse record player.

    My life started at AH AAH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH AHHH

    I'm not sure that I would classify Zepplin as prog either, but that's just my opinion. I know this is rock n' roll blasphemy, but I've never been a huge fan of Led Zepplin. I can certainly respect what they brought to the table, but I just can't listen to it for too long...

    Dream Theater is probably my favorite band. From the first time I saw the Pull Me Under video on MTV waaaaay back in the day, I've been hooked! I've seen them three times live and can honestly say that a performer has to go really far to top their show. The only band to top them that I've seen personally is Iron Maiden. I think the key with these guys is consistency. I've yet to hear them do a bad album.
