hm...im a big fan of Tool. Opeth and Yes are also cool, but i dunno, would Floyd be considered prog? i consider them more psychadelic rock, or something along those lines. but ya, Pink Floyd is amazing, i think that Roger Waters is a genius.

I've seen him post, he doesn't just know the bands in his sig.


And I like older prog, some of the new stuff is interesting but it's not always my thing. Loads of technical metal proggy stuff, and while I like some of it I sometimes prefer subtler, more folky prog.

I'm sure it's out there, I just haven't found it yet.
(Slightly outdated) Electronic and classical compositions by m'self: Check 'em out

new prog exists that isnt metal.

I'm more of a fan of the older prog as well. Some stuff these days I simply cannot listen to. The main Prog bands that i like are Umphrey's Mcgee and the Dixie Dregs.

Awake, I got it for $10 and it's full of good songs.

Awake has only like three or four memorable songs, everything else is poor. Actually, most of DT's early albums are pretty mediocre. But I still enjoy Train of Thought, Images and Words, and Metropolis pt.2.


I'm a fan of older prog and I like King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull (Thick as a Brick is one of my favorite prog albums ever), and Camel.


As for Rush, I know they are good instrumentally, but the only song I like is YYZ and the beginning of 2112. All their other songs are good but I don't like them really.
#23
omg omg omg no one mentioned PLANET X, vitalij kuprij and greg howe have some prog elements in tahir music, virgil donattis serious young insects is great prog album, hiromi uehara great keyboard-piano musicianist or what ever the word for a female musician is

I've been getting into Neal Morse's solo stuff lately... it's really great if you don't mind the religious lyrics.

Blah i can't stand most of dt's new stuff.
Get scenes from a memory, best cd by far imo.

Neither can I... at least I thought Octavarium was really bad. As was When Dream... Metropolis Pt 2 is my favorite followed by........ Train of Thought perhaps.
I have nothing to put in here.

The only good song on Octavarium was...well Octavarium! The rest was rather boring and uninspired.

Gentle Giant is a really good band.

Anything from Jethro Tull to Opeth to Marillion to Camel to Van Der Graaf Generator to Cosmosquad to Dixie Dregs to Gong to Kansas to Karizma to Yes to Soft Machine to Uncle Moe's Space Ranch to... Well, lets just say prog can be pretty fun.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Tool, Dream Theater, The Mars Volta, Queensryche, Sum 41, Pink Floyd.

Prog is by far my favourite genre, especially prog metal. This is a great thread, I will look into some of these bands!

Oh, and I was kidding with Sum 41, obviously.

Does anyone here like Umphrey's Mcgee? They are relatively unknown but I'd say their worth taking a look at.

I think Awake is possibly their strongest album.

I think possibly yes. I suppose it all comes down to what aspect of Dream Theater you like the most. Personally, it's my favourite
