Fragile is great but personally I've been digging Tales from Topographic Oceans recently
In terms of their 70s stuff:
The Yes Album
Tales from Toby's Graphic Go-kart
Close to the Edge
Going for the One
Time and a Word
In that order. All are sublime, though, ignoring Tormato, only On The Silent Wings of Freedom was to my taste from Tormato.
Listening to The gates of delirium with winamp pro visualizer on my desktop.
Shit is so cash.
Any modern upcoming prog rock bands?
I don't mean prog metal because that's already accomplished itself, I'm talking about straight up prog.
It's not metal
Also the album PwnNoobsFtw gave me is awesome...
Try some Spock's Beard maybe?
Where did you find something like that? :psyduck:
I don't actually remember
You should also check out Satellite, The Black Noodle Project, Sylvan, Amplifier, and Quidam
If you want a new project to look out for, Squackett. Steve Hackett and Chris Squire, so it HAS to be good.
Requires some "prog listening" capability... but it's absolutely worth it.
Only released last year too
Akayz, have you tried Aquarius by Haken? It's not prog rock in the strictest sense but it's the most 70s prog influenced album I've heard in a while. Failing that, check out White Willow
Last week or something
Is a damn shame.
Dancing With The Moonlit Knight and 21st Century Schizoid Man.
Two songs that torture me with their ability to play in my head all the time.
...wait a second, is the thread title a reference to Yes' Starship Trooper vv?
Thinking of getting into this kind of music. I think I listened to a Dream Theater album once, and some Dear Hunter. Tell me a good album to start off with though.
I got both their albums on vinyl
Surprised neither of you have heard of them
