I personally wouldn't class you as a human being, but to each their own.

honestly, that's 1/2 the reason I suggested Cooper's WTMN for First Listens.

In response to morph's post- if you listened to over 1/2 of WTMN but you didn't listen to the tracks Years Ago, Steven, & The Awakening, then you can't make a fair judgement. Honestly, if you count the first Doors album as a 1st listen, there is no reason not to have WTMN. Either put up WTMN or take down Doors

Still, I know Alica isn't prog, but whatever.

see the thing is, the Doors were really creative and innovative for their time. They fused ideas and broke barriers, or, 'progressed' rock music to a whole to a new level of spirituality. Cooper is just a dude in make up with a shock gimmick

I did listen to Years Ago, Devils Food, Welcome To My Nightmare, The Black Widow, Some Folks, The Department Of Youth, Only Women Bleed, and Cold Ethyl. Steven and The Awakening I did not, though, but I shall right now as I type this.


......


Alright I listened to those two.

Steven has a lovely Piano in it, but the problem is, is that the piano is playing the same thing through out the song and it's a cliche measure that most people have heard of and is usually the first thing that comes to alot of peoples minds when they think of classical music. The Awakening seemed rather boring and also repetitive.

Honestly, this is like someone calling Voltaire Progressive. I mean yeah, he has some quirky bits here and there and some of his songs have out of tune and dissonant violins and such. Alice has some odd and eerie stuff in his music on this album and I can see how someone would consider it Progressive, but it doesn't really do anything but create shock value.

Everyone needs to listen to this. One of the best prog-folk albums I've ever heard, and Annie Haslam is a phenomenal vocalist.

Are Pentangle considered progressive folk?
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

Dear progface,

Do include Alphataurus - S/T and Magma - Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh in the A-list albums. Absolutely top-tier stuff

VDGG - Godbluff and Pawn Hearts at A; H to He, Least We Can Do, and Still Life at B

Thank you dahling

Well, In the Court... is probably the pinnacle, but it's also a good entry point into prog so...

I like Red, Larks', In the Court..., In the Wake..., and Starless and Bible Black the most.

I guess Islands and Lizard too.

I have neglected to give Larks a listen, all those other albums I know and lurve. <3

The Court is my favorite though, it and Red, then comes Starless.
#133
So, does anyone else like Le Orme or does everybody like them?

Also, a few bands that I've been spinning,

Bein Vecchio Charlie
Luciano Cilio (Although not really prog)
Jacula

Any other recommends?
#134
^ I absolutely adore Le Orme. Felona E Serona, Contrappunti, and Uomo di Pezza are classics.

I recommend the big RPI guys, i.e. Alphataurus, PFM, Banco, etc.

So is Red the pinnacle of King Crimson? Best album(s)?


In The Court and Islands are easily the best.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

While I still disagree, I wil admit defeat, only because you have soundly explained yourself. Congrats!

I was expecting to see Univers Zero - Heresie on the list, but it doesn't appear to be there. I guess progbass must hate freedom...

Now I know they are under Eclectic Prog, but I could of swore I put Uzed on there somewhere. No excuses for Heresie though.

In my defense, I did 90% off the top of my head

It really is a great record.

Do whatever you want mate, just add it in there somewhere.

Also, can someone tab this song out ? It would make an awesome prog rock song if re-recorded with 70s analog recording and Rush tones.

just listen to that bass and they keyboards. and the guitar leads. mmmmm

I really like most of his work, though I must admit the FF9 soundtrack is far beyond his other works, with FF6 being the closest.

The Burmecian / Freija's theme will crush your soul. The title theme is really good too, I think its called "We will return to this place someday".

its largely a neo-renaissance styled suite, but very enjoyable even for those who don't care for that stuff.

he actually has a pseudo prog band that plays his compositions in a rock aesthetic called the Black Mages. I've been half heartedly searching for a rip of the music but to no avail

I used to like prog rock more than I do now (or rather be in the mood for more often), but there's still a few album's a come back to every now and again.
Specifically

Which whilst it might split opinions, I feel is absolutely fantastic. Especially Ouroboros







Plus the more classic Floyd/Crimson/Yes etc.

Though I was wondering if I could be pointed in the direction of some of the best Prog/Folk?

Being obsessed with space, I'm quite partial to that Ramases album cover, even if the spaceship looks like the top of a gothic cathedral taking off.

Have to check that one out.
