Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums
The Contenders: Page 9
One of the most versatile instrumentalists out there today. Deserves some recognition on the list.
Lol guthrie govan is not prog rock
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
Nektar's best album - not only for the music and musicianship, but they also had the best light shows of anyone!
This live album was a concept album about gigs on road trips. Zappa at his best!
One of the key protogynists in what became Krautrock and what a brilliant debut to start the ball rolling
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
The song Hocus Pocus is probably the only progressive rock song in history that includes yodeling. It is a classic.
Has many great songs - Sunrise, Spider Woman, Sweet Lorraine, and The Magician's Birthday.
The low rating figures, since they aren't real popular and crossed the lines from space rock, but this album has "Assault and Battery", "Opa Loka", and "Kings of Speed". Their light shows are awesome, too! - roncohp
This is one of Hawkwind's best albums.
A fabulous jazz fusion album that crossed the line into progressive rock (see genre on Wikipedia). John McLaughlin is a guitar virtuoso, and Billy Cobham cannot be beaten on drums. Besides bass and keyboards, they even have violin! - roncohp
I would rate this as Mahavishnu Orchestra's best album.
Chick Corea's band was known for jazz fusion (progressive jazz), however at least this album crossed the boundary into progressive rock. See the genre for the album on Wikipedia if you don't believe me. - roncohp
The title track alone, is one of the greatest accomplishments in musical history. It's a shame how unknown it is. This is a great king crimson album that is highly underrated. Definitely a keeper. Wondering why this wasnt already on the list.
The fact that I had to add this album to the list just proves how overlooked Rush is. It's their twentieth album and they're still at the top of their game. It's no moving pictures or 2112, but it can still stomp anything by Pink Floyd into the ground.
