Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums
The Contenders: Page 4
piano-driven prog rock, simply magic - diegokatabian
The exchange between Hodgson and Davies was never better, with those two major talents firing off each other brilliantly, complemented fully by a crack band.
A truely masterpiece! And also one of the best produced albums in the 70's.
Where metal meets prog a classic of its era.
How is this not on here while Tokio Hotel is...
This continues the greatness of their debut album. Great melodies, instrumentation, and variation with the use of mellotron. The title track is particularly moving.
This is an incredible album, Genesis aside. The guest vocalists and range of featured instruments is exquisite. Consisting mostly of sweeping gentle songs, punctuated by some remarkable rockier tracks that surprise and bewilder on first listening, the overall mood evoked is poignant and wistful.
The greatest adaptation of Symph-Prog to Latin/Spanish music. Echoes mostly from Genesis, and Yes, it is simply the genius of Charly Garcia at his most crafted music and brilliantly songwriting skills. LISTEN TO IT NOW!V 1 Comment
Fantastic album, you can hear the Genesis of Genesis on this album!
Production and feeling just so good. A warmth like no other live album. Listen to Hackett's guitar work on The Carpet Crawlers
The moody blues has been the most influential band in my life. The first time I heard this album, I was hooked. From there it only got better. However, I wouldn't classify them as prog rock, more symphonic than anything. The poetry in the opening and close of the album is haunting, and sets the scene better than any other intro I can think of. Coupling with Peter Knight was amazing, as the interludes between songs were masterful. This album was the first of it's kind, and will never be forgotten. A+ work. Moodies Forever!
One of the earliest and best works of the genre. Listen and enjoy.
Has many great songs - Wizard, Rainbow Demon, Traveler in Time, Easy Livin'
Fear of a Blank Planet, the name itself has a arcane and mystical feeling to it while the compositions add to the feel. Guests like Alex Lifeson(Rush) and Robert Fripp(King Crimson) have graced the album with their spine chilling solo performance. Steven Wilson with his compositions accompanied by the ambience mastermind Richard Barbieri, jazz infused bass playing elements incorporated by Colon Edwin and of course, the man from a blank planet, Gavin Harrison showcasing his drumming prowess and seems a bit too much to take for us, the resident of Earth.
All the best things about progressive rock without the time-wasting.V 1 Comment
This is seriously underrated.
Just give this band another couple of years. It has the potential to be up there with the greats: Pink Floyd, rush, yes, dt. Porcupine tree and tool are also great.
