i agree with Yes
if you like heavier stuff check out Opeth


o i know about opeth, my favorite band, i was just looking for some lighter stuff, cuz it seems all the music i have is really heavy, and sometimes im just in the mood for stuff like the bands i listed

this seems to obvious, but pink floyd. i dunno if you've listened to them or not.

the flower kings are also pretty cool. if you want some ambient spacey type stuff check out ozric tentacles. another one of my favorite classic prog bands would also be emerson lake and palmer.

Kansas
Kansas
Kansas
Kansas
Magic Pie
Circus Maximus
KANSAS!

EDIT: for Kansas, listen to Leftoverture and all of the albums released before it. They had some superb, epic songs in their glory days.


On a side note, I saw them twice over the summer and they still put on a great show! I am also seeing them in May. Can't wait!

Get some Rush, and I'm surprised no one has mentioned Dream Theater. If you like Opeth...

Genesis : "Selling England by the Pound"
Haken : If you don't know Haken yet just check "the mountain" album. It's epic prog metal (far better than dream theatre in my opinion)
Riverside : lot of good stuff
Steven Wilson : The raven that refused to sing (one of my favourite album)
King Crimson : In the court of the crimson king

And of course pink floyd!!

By the way, thanks all for your advices I think I'm gonna start listening to Yes
#25
OH and I almost forgot to mention Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon is one of his projects) who is simply a god.

Listen to Kingcrow. This is exactly what you are looking for. And they just came out with a new album.
