The album Milliontown will stand up to any album by any band in this category. Frost suffers from 1 ailment when it comes to top 10 lists; they did not begin recording before the 90's.

Please listen to the song Milliontown. - Owengresham

An incredible bang out of Sweden. Sleeping in Traffic pt.1 and pt. 2 are fantastic!

116 Dixie Dregs

Second best band of all time, next to RUSH. Who else could combine rock and country and jazz fusion?

Prog rock or American bluegrass rock? Let's be straight.

117 Prism Prism Prism is a Canadian rock band formed in Vancouver in 1977. They were originally active from 1977 to 1984 and have been active again from 1987 to present.
118 Happy the Man

Surprised not to see them already.

This band should have been at the top of this list!

119 Anekdoten
120 Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso

This is Top 5 material, particularly the first three albums. Symphonic, dual keyboards, operatic singing - doesn't get much better than this.

BMS is one of the best Italian prog rock band. I cannot belive that they are in this rank at the 121th place
