Thick As A Brick, without even blinking an eye. This, in my mind, is truly a masterpiece of progressive rock music, from beginning to end.

Yes I can hardly find fault with the Tull album; but for me DSOTM by a whisker.

Suprisingly, the only ELP album in the top 100 is the self-titled debut at number 78.

They are voluntary contributions and votes based on reviews from (as Nigel said), thousands of prog rock fans and so a valid list of the out and out classics.

If you look further down the top 100 you will find Camel represented very well wink

Anyway, have you heard all those albums? wink





Yes, at least most of them. Not recently though.

I guess what I really think of these albums, is that they are not really masterpieces! I could pick a favourite from the list, but it seems wrong.

My favourite King Crimson album is Lizard.

I wonder if Hackenbacker would call me a hipster. grin

This comment might make you one, since this is often cited as their hardest-to-get album. Though I like it, it's certainly a toughie. (PS Fragile is 11)

My personal favorite from that list is Close To The Edge. But what I think is very interesting is how narrow the music sources are, with a somewhat obscure and limited list of candidates down the line.

Hi there




Thick As A Brick. Not only is it a brilliant piece of prog but also a superb p*ss take on the genre which the critics completely misunderstood at the time - Ian Anderson is a genius imo.

I recently got some Floyd CD's online- so I will soon have Animals and DSOTM (which I only had as a download) as well as the Wall.

Voted for In the court. For me, this sounds like the real birth of a new era of music and sound. Fantastic songs, great arrangements, stellar performances, and an overall great mood on the album. Illusive, haunting, out of this world.

[edit]
I looked at the full list, for some reason I fail to understand why Miles Davis and AldiMeola are in the list. Kind of blue is not prog rock in any sense (though it is my favourite Miles album, along with In a silent way).

Because lots and lots of people have voted for them.

Although Symphonic Prog is the predominate genre on Progarchives, it caters for fans of all different types of alternative music including, jazz, fusion, prog metal, etc.

That list is the overall top 100 from years and years of votes but you can narrow it down to sub-genres if you wish. It just goes to show how amazingly loved those 2 jazz albums are that they are in amongst mostly classic prog rock albums wink

The only album from that list that I don't own is Godbluff. I chose Close to the Edge (closely followed by DSOTM & WYWH).
