The Contenders: Page 5
Can't believe you would leave them out folks, they along with Tool should be in the top five with Pink Floyd Led Zeppelin and Yes! Really. EP Old Hippie
Agreed, English Electric part one and two are stunning. They carry you back to industrial revolution England- and there is a musical beauty that runs through this that owes a lot to Tull and XTC, but there's so much more. the sort of albums you copy and press on every friend you have because "you need to hear this".
English Retro-Prog band which gets better with each new album. They carry forward the 70's prog of Genesis and Yes. Their sound is melodic and very atmospheric.
Great band. Lead singer sounds like a mix of Steve Winwood and Peter Gabriel.
Best prog rock band of the modern day. - TheAwesomeBrosVotesV 1 Comment
3rd generation progenitors, in the spirit of Genesis and Yes.
Incredible band. One of my all time favorites
One of my favourite bands, should be way higher in my opinion.V 2 Comments
This band deserves more points than any band here.
Totally original and excellent musiciansV 2 Comments
Why is this found only in the seven page? This band made such masterpieces such as "July Morning" and "The Magician's Birthday," that they deserve a spot in page 4 at least.
Mainly rock but lots of excellent Prog songs make Uriah Heep a band that needs to be much further up this list.
July morning is a progressive rock classicV 1 Comment
Great but unfortunately shortlived band, in my opinion their far best record is IF 4.V 1 Comment
The best compilation band of uniquely talented members. They completed their first album in 5 days... enough said.
Basicly Dream Theater with another name (portnoy, petrucci and rudess are in this band). They don't deserve a place in the top 10, but they're pretty cool. However, DT has way better albums than this guys.V 1 Comment
If their lyrics were in English, Fragil could be considered in the top 30V 1 Comment
The fac that this band is currently only 91 this a crime, one of the most forward thinking prog rock bands of the decade that is sadly no more.
Can't believe nobody put Pain of salvation on this list... they're like, amazing!
There is no earthly way they can't be in this list but the fact they come from Italy...V 1 Comment
The only Polish rock band to have successfully broken the restraints of the iron curtain, SBB - an abbreviation for either Silesian Blues Band or Search Break-up Build has been mesmerising their fans with long spacious melodies created by Jozef Skrzek, a true master of Hammond organs, that can easily break into fast galloping songs and poetic lyrics. Musicians of the Mahavishnu Orchestra once called SBB the most influential band they had ever met. Truly a must for any prog rock fan!
Probably, Pink Floyd is most known and most influential progressive rock band, period. But they are already on the first place - and this is why I decided to vote for SBB (shortcut for Silesian Blues Band).
It's not very popular group, especially because they were formed in Poland, when this country was behind the iron courtain.
If you don't know them, I highly recommend you to give them a chance. You won't regret.
It's a real deal - ambicious and full of emotions. Personally, I listen to them along with King Crimson or Pink Floyd.
The contemporary master of prog the man who has combined musicianship with sumptuous melody and heart felt anthems that make me glad to be alive againV 1 Comment
Their Sandinista and London Calling is a great progressive punk albumV 4 Comments
Smile was kinda progressive in my opinion - RecklessGreed
