181 The Seventh House - I.Q. The Seventh House - I.Q.

Awesome lyrics and epic ending!

182 Rings of Earthly Light - Eris Pluvia Rings of Earthly Light - Eris Pluvia

Very good use of wind instruments. The section with the female vocalist adds drama to the story of this 17min epic... Too bad Eris Pluvia only released 2 albums...

183 Devil's Playground - Flower Kings

The fretless bass solo is simply stunning!

184 Jerry Was a Race Car Driver - Primus Jerry Was a Race Car Driver - Primus
185 Innuendo - Queen Innuendo - Queen
186 November Rain - Guns N' Roses November Rain - Guns N' Roses
187 Estranged - Guns N' Roses Estranged - Guns N' Roses

Not prog by any means

188 Swim to the Moon - Between the Buried and Me Swim to the Moon - Between the Buried and Me V 1 Comment
189 April - Deep Purple April - Deep Purple

Amazing 12-minutes long song from Deep Purple's third album.

190 The Fall of the House of Usher - Alan Parson's Project The Fall of the House of Usher - Alan Parson's Project

Why is this song so low? It's a great progressive song from their first album.

191 A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd A Saucerful of Secrets - Pink Floyd

One of their best early instrumentals. It paved the way for their later masterpieces. The song is devided into four sections. 1) "Something Else" is very spacy with strange sounds, 2) "Syncopated Pandemonium" consists of an improvisation over a drum-loop. 3) "Storm Signal" and 4) "Celestial Voices" are very melodic and a big contrast to the first parts.
It's a song you have to listen multiple times, but it's worth it. One of the best Floyd instrumentals.

192 Lonesome Crow - Scorpions Lonesome Crow - Scorpions

13-minutes long and one of their few progressive songs. The instrumental parts and exspecially the guitar work of Michael Schenker is amazing.

193 Child In Time - Deep Purple Child In Time - Deep Purple

A masterpiece by Deep Purple. Ian Gillan's screams are amazing, as well as Ritchie Blackmore's guitar.

194 We'll Burn the Sky - Scorpions We'll Burn the Sky - Scorpions

Starts as a ballad, but leads in to a heavy, but still melodic rock song. It is only about 6 and half minutes long, but still very complex and the guitar work of Uli Roth at the end is amazing.
