I need some more great, melodic rock-much like these albums:

Dredg-El Cielo, Leitmotif
Cave In-Jupiter
Porcupine Tree-(everything)
Team Sleep
Mars Volta-(everything)
Tool-(everything)
Rush-(everything)

Just throwing some classic stuff out there; I know most of the usual suspects though.

When I first heard "Jupiter" and "Leitmotif" I was floored.

I need to be floored again.

if you look up those bands on itunes in the store, on the right hand side you will see something that says "listeners also bought" if you only want something that sounds like a spacific album, click on that album first and then look. you should be able to find something you like

Guys-thanks for the recs, but Boston and Genesis are not really along the lines of what I am looking for.

As compared to what I listed above, im looking for the hard-prog-rock recs.

Anyone?

How about Joe Satriani? Also Spock's Beard?

Big Wreck if you like it a little on the classically trained but heavy side.

x2 on Riverside

Not exactly proggy or artsy, but for pretty good rock and fairly unique sound/style, check out the self titled album by the band Tantric.

Also, A Perfect Circle is a must if you are a tool fan.

Yes - Fragile and Close to The Edge (although its drastically different, but still good prog with melodic elements thrown in)

Ayreon - Human Equation

Maybe check out some Marillion as well

I would second the King Crimson - the album "Red" would be a good one to check out

I'll second Yes. A friend introduced me to them a few weeks ago and I'm really loving Close to the Edge. It's got a jazzy, offbeat, dissonant feel in parts which is interesting and something different in rock music.

Ayreon's great as well. Definitely something that has to be listened in albums from start to end though.
