This band has been recommended to me for years. Someday I need to sit down and give them a proper listen.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Good stuff

Now, interestingly is 'progressive rock' and 'prog rock' the same thing...?

Is the word 'prog' just a truncated form of the word 'progressive'

Many of the youngsters think is but history states otherwise

Even Ian Anderson of Tull, says that they were a progressive rock band and not a prog band. And elsewhere the same lad from 'The Auld Grey Toun' states that Eddie Jobson tried to make Tull a prog band....

Some folk will be airbrushing out Trotsky next....!

If you are of the broad church persuasion they are one and the same thing. But you know that C ;)

As you know C. there are those of us who know the difference between progressive and prog and they are not one and the same thing.

Incidentally, here are two examples of 'good' prog

I hate King Crimson with a passion even I find hard to understand.

By the way, I'm not trying to find prog that I like. I don't like prog and that seems to be that.
What I was trying to do at first was to identify what exactly prog is, or whether particular tracks/albums/bands can be called prog. Now my mission is to identify what makes prog 'good' to your ears. I know who the canonical proggers are; what I'm looking for is something that I can predict you will like without it being part of the canon. Obviously, I've failed in this case and it may be impossible. If I don't like it, it'll be hard to know what would tickle your prog tastebuds.

We shall see.

I might venture that as incautious terminology, my learned friend.

It's truly awful. The worst thing I've heard for a long time.

I'd never heard of them before this appeared in one of my Spotify-made playlists. Having looked them up, they sound like they could be interesting; they seem to have adopted a huge variety of styles over the last few years.
