Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Deadwing - Porcupine Tree

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

122 More - Pink Floyd
123 Fireball - Deep Purple

I know, Deep Purple are no Prog rock band, but this album is prog. Just listen to Fools and The Mule. Pure progressive rock - DarkSideOfDragons

124 Face the Music - Electric Light Orchestra
125 The Division Bell - Pink Floyd
126 Ocean - Eloy
127 Vrooom Vrooom - King Crimson
128 Pyromania - Def Leppard

How is this prog?

129 Once Again - Barclay James Harvest
130 Invisible Touch - Genesis

This is the first album by Genesis that is NOT prog. 'Duke' was their last prog album. This one is pure pop. Check out the album's genre on Wikipedia, if you don't believe me. Both Wikipedia and I agree with the first comment.

Brilliant album. Pop prog hits like the title track and land of confusion share the bill with more classic prog stylings like dominoes. Essential.

Not prog - RalphSaad

131 Duke - Genesis
132 Promise Land - Queensryche

Whoa whoa how do you forget this album by Queensryche. Really! At I was smart enough to do this. Well the album is 9 out of 10. Best Qnr albumm.

133 Aenima - Tool

Best heavy prog album ever

134 Breakfast In America - Supertramp

"The Logical Song" is my favorite song by Supertramp!
