    Just in case you guys haven't heard them, allow me to recommend a very modern progressive band: Karnivool, a fantastic Australian band. Their album Sound Awake is my favourite album, out of any album, ever.
    I saw them live. Great show.

    I really love 80s Prog Rock.

    Can't get enough of it actually... some really great stuff pulled through.




    Yes they were pop sounding, but that's the beauty of it. It was "fun" music, always puts a smile on my face. It isn't a guilty pleasure or anything because I can't get enough of this era.

    I'm of the opinion that Power Windows had the best mixing of any album ever. The sound is so crisp and clear! And Marathon was a prog song, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    omagod, just discovered what may be the greatest "random" find ever.

    The cover looked interesting and these were the sounds I got. :smug:

    Robert Fripp has said there is no hope for a King Crimson reunion. So no more albums ever again. :smith:

    Where the crap is Porcupine Tree? One the best and well known modern prog-bands?
    Anesthetize(aka orgasmic)
    Sound of Muzak
    As a drummer, Gavin Harrison is also a huge inspiration to me(not forgetting Phil Collins and Bill Bruford).
    Saw Porcupine live last years, was so cash. Funny thing is, Gavin Harrison played with King Crimson in 2008 or something, live.

    Genesis - In the Cage(my favourite)
    Too bad Phil can't drum anymore, since his back is fucked.

    Just because Porcupine Tree isn't mentioned in the OP doesn't mean we don't like to talk about it :smug:

    I guess within the last 3 years have they started getting popular so can't really value it's influence just yet.

    I need to hear their earlier work.

    It's true. It is due to the way they are confused about how Prog Rock has become accustomed to newer music. We'll never get anything like it was in the 70s.

    Nothing like will ever happen :3:

    RUSH is a bit different though. Instead of trying to sound like they used to, they change their sound to what fits them the best at that time. This is the main reason why they still have it going so well.

    Not necessarily. If you dig deep within what happened in the 70s, you can technically be occupied for the rest of your life with 70s prog rock.

    It wasn't just Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Genesis, Yes, ELP and King Crimson. I assure you

    I guess thatīs true, but I still find it sad that that entire era is pretty much lost for ever. Itīs like realizing you will never again play Pokemon Gold on your Gameboy Color for the first time (replace with any definitive/memorable moment from your childhood that you will never experience again).

    Well, you can't re-experience a memory, since its already a memory of yours and cannot be recreated without the knowledge of the original memory it is based on.

    I still haven't managed to find anything that even comes close to this, and I probably never will, which makes me a bit sad.


    There is something about the way the lyrics and musics goes so well together in that song that makes it so perfect for me.

    Thatīs pretty good, though Iīd like to understand what heīs singing about. I know there is tons of stuff for me to discover, but discovering something doesnīt really compare to getting your hands on a new album youīve been waiting for, and nowadays there isnīt much of that, for me at least.

    Well, you can't re-experience a memory, since its already a memory of yours and cannot be recreated without the knowledge of the original memory it is based on.
    Yes, but itīs still something thatīs forever lost in time. Damn you time for being such a bitch :argh:.

    maybe that's true of their first album, but Ars Longa Vita Brevis is certainly prog, and still came out almost a year before ITCOTCK.

    Well obviously nowadays there isn't because times have changed.

    Also this.

    It was released only last year.
