Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums
The Contenders: Page 5
Fantastic album, you can hear the Genesis of Genesis on this album!
Octavarium definitely gets my vote. - naFrovivuS
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.
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.
A modern prog classic full f strange concepts and progressive time changes will feature in best of lists in times to come.V 1 Comment
Has many great songs - Wizard, Rainbow Demon, Traveler in Time, Easy Livin'
An overlooked masterpiece by an overlooked band
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.
Masterpiece. The last breath of prog rock by Genesis.
This is the greatest progressive live album of all time! - FariamixD
Without doubt the best piece of music by the best musicians ever.
In my opinion, that is.
Some of the other entries are fantastic, but not including this masterpiece at all would be a crime. Symphonic prog at its best! Don't be discouraged by the Italian lyrics; the album is mostly instrumental and rivals the sound of Genesis.
Don't be afraid about this Italian Group!
This is one of the best progressive rock album of ever...
Think about the "delicate songs" of King Crimson and immerge yourself into this sweet Floyd of WONDERFUL MUSIC.
NOT TO BE MISSED! :-)
I've listened to thousands of rock and jazz albums since I was 11 and this is by far the best and still listen to it after 40 years. The amazing thing is that I never got tired of it and even enjoy every listen still. This is such a emotionally moving album.V 1 Comment
The ultimate in literary concept albums.
Underrated because of the shadow cast by the first one.V 1 Comment
