Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums
The Contenders: Page 6
Underrated because of the shadow cast by the first one.V 1 Comment
Not as 'in your face' proggy as many albums on this list, but far more enjoyable and melodic. I'm glad to see some good (sensible) modern suggestions on this list as I feel there is often a strong bias towards 70's music when discussing progressive rock. This album many not have had the same impact that Dark side of the moon or Close to the edge had (for example), but I certainly play it far more frequently. I feel that this band was on the verge of a (long overdue) commercial breakthrough before they split, but I'm glad to see Steven Wilson's solo career doing so well!
Can't believe this wasnt on the list, better than In Absentia if you ask me. Definitely deserves top 20
Although their earlier album, "Gone to Earth", wears the laurels as the third most popular album of all time in Europe's biggest music market (Germany), this album probably marks the high water mark of this excellent band's studio album output.
The second best Floyd record. Piper is the first
It's really difficult between this one and King Crimson's debut, so I'll vote back and forth between the two until I make a solid decision.
This album is NOT prog. While his first 2 were, this one was just heavy metal. Don't take my word for it, check it out on Wikipedia.
It bites came back in 2008 with John Mitchell taking over from Francis Dunnery. And what an album. Modern prog rock, one great melody/arrangement after the other. Check it put.
Best progressive rock album of the 2000s (21st century). Not EXTREMELY good, but deserves being at top 20, because it brought back progressive rock, not like Dream Theater, things like that are Prog Metal (also Tool and stuff). Very good album, never get tired. 7.5/10 - patrickfloyd
A masterpiece that will make you want more!
This is the culmination of what "prog" and "rock" really mean. Symphony X brings mastery of every instrument and mastery of complex compositions to the table.
One of the best albums of all time. These guys are the Kansas of Progressive metal.
Wow, outside of top 100, really? It's one album I keep coming back after many years of listening
Understandably low as AAL is fairly new to the scene, however it should be MUCH higher. Some awesome harmonic and rhythmic complexity with amazing songwriting. Not one weak band member. If you've never heard of them I highly recommend you give them a shot.
