The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Gryphon

They explored new musical territory fusing medieval music and rock. Incorporating diverse instrumentation such as recorders, crumhorms, bassoon and mandolin they sounded like no-one else. Richard Harvey and Brian Gulland are brilliant multi-intrumentalists, Graeme Taylor, like Steve Howe, a versatile guitarist in many styles. David Oberle great on a drum-kit or various percussion and vocals. Later members of comparable ability. Pity they only lasted for 5 albums

Maybe not the most obvious choice for a prog list. But with Dream Theater in the top 10, there should at least be a mention of this awesome band!

The greatest prog band ever, still playing after 45 years with original members lead singer Sonja Kristina and drummer Florian Pilkington-Miksa. The first 3 albums from the early 70s were masterpieces, check out Air Conditioning, Curved Air 2nd Album and Phantasmagoria for spellbinding arrangements and musicianship from Francis Monkman and Daryl Way.
