Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums
The Contenders: Page 5XW
Masterpiece. The last breath of prog rock by Genesis.
This is the greatest progressive live album of all time! - FariamixD
The second best Floyd record. Piper is the first
This album is NOT prog. While his first 2 were, this one was just heavy metal. Don't take my word for it, check it out on Wikipedia.
I've listened to thousands of rock and jazz albums since I was 11 and this is by far the best and still listen to it after 40 years. The amazing thing is that I never got tired of it and even enjoy every listen still. This is such a emotionally moving album.
It bites came back in 2008 with John Mitchell taking over from Francis Dunnery. And what an album. Modern prog rock, one great melody/arrangement after the other. Check it put.
Best progressive rock album of the 2000s (21st century). Not EXTREMELY good, but deserves being at top 20, because it brought back progressive rock, not like Dream Theater, things like that are Prog Metal (also Tool and stuff). Very good album, never get tired. 7.5/10 - patrickfloyd
A masterpiece that will make you want more!
Yes, into death metal. But drawn with progressive elements. A great album.
This is the culmination of what "prog" and "rock" really mean. Symphony X brings mastery of every instrument and mastery of complex compositions to the table.
Understandably low as AAL is fairly new to the scene, however it should be MUCH higher. Some awesome harmonic and rhythmic complexity with amazing songwriting. Not one weak band member. If you've never heard of them I highly recommend you give them a shot.
What the crap this isn't prog. This is well... literally crap!
This album is all great, but it contains "Icarus: Borne on Wings of Steel." The song is based on the legendary flight of Icarus in Greek mythology but its in the first person and its application today is amazing.
