It's a pity that the Pink Floyd vote is split between 2 albums.

True. Those 2 King Crimson albums are pretty different too. I like one much more than the other!

Which one?
I voted for ITCOTCK. I like Red and Starless is among their best songs but none of the other 4 are, except maybe, on a very good day, Red. (They're good songs, no doubt.)

ITCOTCK for me. I like ITWOP too. Prefer the more melodic King Crimson.

I'm split, Larks is my favorite, SaBB is my least favorite of 69-74, and red is a good album but only my 3rd or 4th

I like the Red album a lot. Providence is the only track I skip. It sounds to me like a jam thats going no-where. Too abstract to make anything of itů

I don't dislike it, but it is perhaps a little much. I think One More Red Nightmare and Fallen Angel are a little weak; they're good songs but it sounds like someone tried to make a pop song into a prog song (almost like Yes's version of America, which is actually quite good.)

If someone were to ask me for my favourite 8 prog albums, the list (excluding Genesis) would probably include:

1. King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic
2. King Crimson - Lizard
3. Jethro Tull - A Passion Play
4. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
5. Van Der Graaf Generator - Godbluff
6. Van Der Graaf Generator - H to He, Who Am The Only One
7. Yes - Close To The Edge
8. Caravan - In The Land of Grey And Pink

In short, there would only be two albums on my list that would have made the top 8 Prog Archives ranking (Thick As A Brick and Close To the Edge). On the other hand, my favourite groups would be fairly similar, the major exception being Pink Floyd. (I do like PF, by the way!)

So what does that mean? Very little, except that even in the small world of progressive music (and the even smaller world of "classic" progressive music) there might seem to be great differences, when in reality that's not the case.

Guess what? We all like more or less the same thing laugh

A very nice post Julian smiley

Mind you, I don't necessarily agree that we all "like more or less the same thing". Obviously the one thing we all have in common is a love of Genesis but there is quite a divergence after that I think.

Personally speaking, the same classic bands I loved in the 70s (Genesis, Camel, Floyd, Yes, Rush, etc) are the ones I still love now. I have tried to revisit the other classic bands (Gentle Giant, VDGG, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, etc) thinking I was just too young to appreciate their quirkiness but the only one that I warm to more now is Jethro Tull, mainly because I have grown to love folk music over the past 7 or 8 years.

Cheers!
