          Three Friend's - Gentle Giant
          The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway - Genesis
          -----------------
          I think out of all my prog rock collection, which is huge, these two albums hit me the hardest.
          Powerful, highly adventurous music that's performed impeccably and nearly impossible to define.

            Nektar - A Tab in the Ocean



            This truly is a killer album. Sadly it's not mentioned in the same breath as Tales of Topographic Oceans or In the Court of the Crimson King and that ilk.

            Because it 100% definitely deserves to be.
            I don't want to sell my music. I'd like to give it away because where I got it, you didn't have to pay for it.

              I have that album Muddslide! I also have the remastered versions of Remember the Future, Recycled, Down to Earth, Magic is a Child, and Prodigal Son.
              I actually have the first version of Remember the Future on cd, which was a messed up mix!!

                So, I want to delve into the world of progressive rock and need some recommedations for listening.

                I am looking for 2 or 3 quintessential albums on which to get my feet wet. I have had exposure to the standard Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Genesis that gets played on classic rock radio, but I want to go a little deeper.

                I know this is a broad topic, but where should I start?


                Check out a German band called High Wheel.

                  I really dig Lucifer's Friend, who were a bunch of German prog rockers except for singer John Lawton, who was English. Their bassplayer was just unfrikinbelievable. I think his name was Dieter Horns or something. Wicked, just like Lawton's voice.

                    That is cool! I have Tab on vinyl but it's falling to pieces. The CD I burned from it is pretty staticky and scratchy too.

                    I need to upgrade to some of these remastered discs fo' sho'.

                    • I have In absentia, Deadwing, Lightbulb Sun, Nil Recurring, and FoaBP. What should I get next? And how is the Blackfield stuff?


                      Stupid Dream or Signify.

                      The Blackfield stuff blows my mind how good it is. It is less Prog, but completely badass. Grab both albums.

                      • I agree with lug Fragile is the place to start, along with In the court of the crimson king and Camel - Mirage

                        Camel - first 4 albums
                        Comus - First Utterance

                        Gong - Radio Gnome Trilogy
                        Van der Graaf Generator - Pawn Hearts
                        Taal - Skymind
                        Morte Macabre - Symphonic Holocaust
                        Gryphon - Red Queen to Gryphon Three

                        • The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, Going for the One are in my opinion better than Fragile.

                          Jon Anderson MAKES YES. His voice is sometimes irritating, but as a singer, he's miles ahead of his contemporary bros.

                          I have to get my hands on that Nektar album, now.

                            Better but not more accessable. My personal favorite is Relayer and Close. Like him or not, Anderson can match his album performances better live than almost any singer I've ever heard.

                                Ill be the round about
                                The words will make you out n out
                                You change the day your way
                                Call it morning driving thru the sound and
                                In and out the valley

                                The muses dance and sing
                                They make the children really ring
                                I spend the day your way
                                Call it morning driving thru the sound and
                                In and out the valley

                                In and around the lake
                                Mountains come out of the sky and they
                                Stand there
                                One mile over well be there and well see
                                You
                                Ten true summers well be there and
                                Laughing too
                                Twenty four before my love youll see Ill be
                                There with you

                                I will remember you
                                Your silhouette will charge the view
                                Of distance atmosphere
                                Call it morning driving thru the sound and
                                Even in the valley

                                Along the drifting cloud the eagle searching
                                Down on the land
                                Catching the swirling wind the sailor sees
                                The rim of the land
                                The eagles dancing wings create as weather
                                Spins out of hand
                                Go closer hold the land feel partly no more
                                Than grains of sand
                                We stand to lose all time a thousand answers
                                By in our hand
                                Next to your deeper fears we stand
                                Surrounded by a million years

                                Perfectly clear to me!
