    That was a great song, and they seem awesome. Cool - a new band discovery for me!

    Oh good! That's why we're here. Stick around, and let us know what we're missing!

    I will. I have a broad music knowledge but my 'Prog' knowledge is restricted to the classics/standards: DSOTM, The Wall, 2112, Selling England by the Pound, Close to the Edge, Thick as a Brick.

    Not sure how many prog power fans here but I absolutely love Seventh Wonder.

    GREAT START Just expanding on those 5 groups you've mentioned try the following

    Pink floyd:
    Atom Heart Mother *
    Ummagumma *

    (*acquired taste but great)

    Farewell to Kings

    Nursery Cryme

    The Yes Album

    Jethro Tull:
    Aqualung and everything else but not all is prog!

    Then move on to Gentle Giant, King Crimson. Hatfield and the North, Caravan, Camel. Van der Graaf Generator (the litmus test for true Progrockfreaks>:) ) ELP etc to experience the true golden age.

    To continue with that (EDIT mainly) early seventies vibe when British rock ruled the world get in addition to every Progressive Rock album of the time, everything recorded between 1969 and 1973 by the Who, Free, The Faces, Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Atomic Rooster, Wishbone Ash, Mott the Hoople, Alex Harvey, Rory Gallagher (he was Irish I know but I don't care) etc etc.

    Times never to be repeated

    Oh and every folk rock and singer song writer album too (particularly Roy Harper, Nick Drake and John Martyn)


    .....not to mention David Bowie, Roxy Music, Moody Blues. Procol Harum, Supertramp even Elton John and 10cc; the musical peak in rock. AIMHO

    Love this! Any more suggestions for modern prog that incorporates classical instruments like flute and violin?

    Not modern and never happened but I'd like to see this:
    Jean-Luc Ponty & Ian Anderson :sunglasses:
