102 Deliverance - Opeth

Very progressive music with a lot of different soft and hard parts.

You deaf idiots you put all the garbage on top and OPETH at 55 go check your ears.

103 Flying - Anathema

This songs is fantastic one of the best last 4min songs ever.

One the best songs I have ever heard :((

104 Cygnus X-1 Book II: Hemispheres - Rush V 1 Comment
105 The Spirit of Radio - Rush V 1 Comment
106 Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd

What I love about this song is that it's haunting, melancholic, dramatic, mellow, humourous and weird but also beautiful. David's solo is very underrated and is, in my humble opinion, the first one where he really shines. I love the orchestra and choir, I love Rick playing that simple keyboard riff whilst being accompanied by a violin and I love the "chorus". It's a track that needs to be played occasionally. While there are other prog rock songs that might be sligthly better, this one is a masterpiece, and it deserves to be higher on this list.

Definitely needs to be on this list. I always have chills listening to this incredible masterpiece, which makes you go through so many emotions.

GREAT progressive rock song from this classic progressive rock band. They are the forefather of progressive rock. Please listen once. It deserves higher position...

The best prog ever written and nothing close can ever be written again...
Porcupine Tree gets on your brains and nerves and makes you wanna listen to this like a trillion times non-stop...

This is a great song from a very underrated band. If you only have listened to their radio hits, then you are missing out. Definitely a prog masterpiece.
