seeing the typical silly comments about who is prog. Yeah some delve in other genre but all the bands I see listed are prog or at least crossover or prog related.
My list is going to drop bands down if they had some crappy albums.
Gong Family(I'm including Pierre's Gong, Steven Hillage Band and Daevid Allen's solo and other projects) - this isn't even close Gong is my premier prog band.
KC - brilliant stuff from 70-2020 -
Pink Floyd - brilliant space rock from 66 until Animals - not a fan of the Wall but its still good.
Strawbs - another band all good.
Genesis/Peter Gabriel-they would be higher but after W&W so add in the Gabriel solo to up them on the listing
Soft Machine - If you don't think they were prog you don't know what your talking about.
Porcupine Tree/SW - finally a newer band that deserves the credit
Marillion - fan of both Fish and H singers and eras - extra points for still going
Magma - mostly for being unique
Yes - interesting how much they have dropped on my lists, I just don't listen to them much. They also lost me after Going for the One although the next one had its moments
Jethro Tull- love or hate by album for me
Zappa - love plenty of Zappa maybe he should be higher, dropped because its not all prog
ELP - love early hate late
The Decemberists - I consider them very prog
Henry Cow - just not enough material
Radiohead - they have their prog elements
PFM, Blanco, LE Orme - italian prog giants
Ozric Tentacles - another great space rock band
