The Contenders: Page 9

161 Passion and Warfare - Steve Vai
162 Angel's Egg - Gong

This is part 2 of the Radio Gnome Invisible series. All 3 are great. Part 1 is Flying Teapot, and part 3 is You.

163 The Incident - Porcupine Tree
164 Discipline - King Crimson

Oops meant best of the 80's trinity

The best of the 60's trinity.The other two couldn't match this and are avoidable

165 The Velvet Underground and Nico - The Velvet Underground

How exactly, is this a concept album? One of the best, but not for this list.

Ops, last comment, disregard - wrong list!
Still wouldn't call it a prog album though...

166 Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson Lake & Palmer

Sick album Emerson is a god Rip

167 Scheherazade and Other Stories - Renaissance

This album is beautiful symphonic prog. It is one of very few prog bands (3? including Curved Air and Catapilla) with a female vocalist and Annie Haslam has a 5-octave range!

168 Wake Pig - Three
169 Out of Myself - Riverside

Part 1 of a trilogy

170 Rapid Eye Movement - Riverside
171 Second Life Syndrome - Riverside
172 The Songs of Distant Earth - Mike Oldfield
173 Still Life - Opeth
174 Erotic Cakes - Guthrie Govan

One of the most versatile instrumentalists out there today. Deserves some recognition on the list.

Lol guthrie govan is not prog rock

175 The Power and the Glory - Gentle Giant

This is the best album ever. With "So Sincere" and "Cogs in Cogs" on the same album, what can top it!

I agree with this review and In a Glass house is neck to neck with it

176 Remember the Future - Nektar

Nektar's best album - not only for the music and musicianship, but they also had the best light shows of anyone!

177 Fillmore East, June 1971 - Frank Zappa and the Mothers

This live album was a concept album about gigs on road trips. Zappa at his best!

178 Monster Movie - Can

One of the key protogynists in what became Krautrock and what a brilliant debut to start the ball rolling

179 Phantasmagoria - Curved Air

The song Marie Antoinette is a classic progressive rock song. The story is of the French Revolution, and their female vocalist is a rare treat in progressive.

Criminally underrated band and deserve the same accolades that are afforded tot the likes of yes,genesis and all the rest

180 Moving Waves - Focus

The song Hocus Pocus is probably the only progressive rock song in history that includes yodeling. It is a classic.
