    Their Red album is probably easier to get into, but their debut must be heard :3:

    Try some Pink Floyd too.
    Oh yeah, Pink Floyd. Never really thought of them as progressive, I just think of them and think of classic rock. Listened to Meddle by them, it was pretty great.

    The Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd is the album that got me into prog, so you might want to try that too.

    Fair enough, they're kind of hard to judge as they change styles so often.

    One day they're Space Rock, then Psychadelic Rock then progressive rock then pop rock.... :psyduck:

    You'll enjoy some Genesis and Yes though.

    Got it
    Gonna finish this album and I'll get started on King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King then Genesis - Selling England By The Pound then Yes - Fragile and finally Pink Floyd - The Dark Side Of The Moon.

    Feel free to add anymore to the list. I am all for making huge lists of bands that I'll never finish listening to. Check the metal challenge I set up on my Last.fm page <:

    You absolutely have to try something by Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
    Tarkus and Brain Salad Sugery are their best in my opinion.

    Got a 5 hour Spotify playlist set up that'll cover the albums mentioned except all the King Crimson and Pink Floyd.

    Really hoping I can keep the new music mood for long enough.

    I'm confused, why have I not heard of them either?

    :psyduck:

    Edited:

    Miles better than Asia.
    Yea, what's up with Asia, anyways? It's like all of the best Prog artists get together and start making pop .

    You've got to hear this version of Lark's. It's even heavier. God I love the crazy violin part.

    Yes, and ELP are truly great, but I only like their SERIOUS stuff. Most of their songs seem to be just foolin' around and it doesn't really appeal to me.

    The only songs I think are "foolin' around" are Jeremy Bender, Are You Ready Eddy? and Benny The Bouncer.

    It's nice, but expected a "pre-Asia" period of pure prog.

    It's like starting Genesis straight away with Phil Collins!

    Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes. :smug:

    Wait...

    King Crimson BECAME New Wave in their later days. :psyboom:

    Can anyone reccomend me some ELP? I tried listening to them before but couldn't really get into them. I've developed my proggy palette a lot since then so I thought I'd give them another go. Anyone?

    in before Tarkus

    I myself didn't like Black Moon.
    The next sentence I will put inside spoiler tags, because it can cause rage.
       I liked In The Hot Seat more than Black Moon

    No worries. It's like saying you like Invisible Touch more than Trick of the Tail.

    Now that you mention those albums, I should probably go listen to both of them.

    Listened to the first. I think I'm already hooked! Probably going to wait until I get Brain Salad Surgery before I listen to all the impressions.

    Thanks, Hakita! :buddy:

    No problem.
    The second impression is very different from what you expect, that I can already tell you.
