Camel is a favorite prog rock band of mine.
Their first four albums from the 70's are the best. But their later work has some gems.

The most blessed prog band. Make sure to listen to their other works/side-projects:
L'heptade (their best)
En tournee (L'heptade live, as good if not better than the studio version)
Harmonium (their debut, pretty good)
Deux cents nuits a l'heure (Weakest of their works, but still good regardless)
Live au el casino (Very comfy jazzy album, more towards jazz-rock)
Harmonium Symphonique (Nice orchestral rendition of their work)
Serge Fiori's solo albums are alright, but no really true Harmonium

Can anyone from Canada please tell me if Viens Voir Le Paysage has actual concert footage before I purchase it?

Bitches Brew is jazz-rock fusion, which isn't really the same as prog rock, though there is some crossover but not much. Even prog bands that feature jazz elements like Soft Machine are doing very different things than 60s-70s Miles

Remain in Light, but prog. In all seriousness, I believe it inspired Radiohead even though I don’t think they’ve ever mentioned it. Even the way Thom Yorke sings reminds me of Adrian Below especially on Frame by Frame. Anyways, this is definitely one of the best records of the 80s

First 4 and Last 4 albums are good. It shame it is almost same with all the prog bands, first albums are best then they make unlistenably mediocre stuff for 30 years, come in to sences and make few good ones and then die of old age.

Still even mediocre one has at least one good song in them, like Echoes from Breathless and First Light from Rain Dances.

The feelgood factor was so fucking high for this album and you can hear it in every song. Deeply talented musicians at the top of their game and before Peter got a bit too carried away with himself. I still like the Lamb and Selling England but the storytelling became too clever for its own good.
>>
>>113712950
i'd definitely recommend going deeper into the bands you listed here. from elp, check out the rest of their first four albums plus pictures at an exhibition. from genesis, check out their albums from trespass to wind and wuthering. from king crimson, if you enjoy the heaviness of red, i'd recommend larks tongues in aspic, starless and bible black, thrak, and power to believe. in the court of the crimson king is also an essential king crimson album. from yes, check out anything from the yes album to going for the one. i don't know much about mike oldfield so i can't give you any info there.

other albums that are generally considered to be essential prog rock canon are octopus by gentle giant (a bit weird so if you don't like it don't be dissuaded), thick as a brick by jethro tull, 2112 by rush, crime of the century by supertramp, mirage by camel, and pawn hearts by van der graaf generator.

if you're open to more modern stuff i'd recommend checking out dream theater. they're one of the biggest bands in the modern prog metal scene and they are heavily inspired by a lot of 70s prog bands. i'd recommend images and words by them to begin with.

progarchives is a great online resource for discovering more about the genre

Van Der Graaf Generator. Pawn Hearts, H to He, and The Least We Can Do are all really well loved amazing albums if you like the epic style of Yes like Close to the Edge. Yes has other good albums too. The Yes Album and Fragile have more jam songs like Siberian Khatru. Relayer is also a fan favorite. I think Going for the One also has great songs with cool organs. Don't know if you've listened to Rush, but they also do a proggy heavy style you may like since Red is your favorite of all KC albums. Another anon said you should listen to Brain Salad Surgery and I agree if you like Tarkus. Basically circus prog lol.

people who almost exclusively listen to the name British bands, because the 80s were quite dire for most of them
bands from outside that sphere weren't affected, and obviously some more niche sounds kept going as well, like Magma et al
one of my favorite prog albums ever is from 1981

have you heard the studio version they put down in the 90s? It's similar to the abridged version they played live on the In Concert lp in that it cuts a few parts from the suite, running about 15 minutes. It was recorded in dolby surround sound and sounds amazing on a good set of speakers. You can find it on the deluxe edition of In the Hot Seat on streaming or just on youtube

well I mean to be pedantic, 95 percent of John Zorn's music is jazz or modern classical, and this is really just Electric Free Jazz with some electronic elements
don't get me wrong, Electric Masada is one of my favorite groups period
I actually really like these prog metal quartets he's put together for the past few years as well, though

Electric Masada's At the Mountains of Madness feels just as much a rock album as it does a jazz album.
>>
>>113736796
Very bizarre take. Not one of those musicians is associated with prog (except maybe Dunn but that's kinda a stretch) and the music itself is still just like Masada. Jewish and klezmer, scales, Ornette Coleman-style modes, free collective improv. It's maybe 10% rock at most. The fact that there's an electric guitar is the only thing that even loosely resembles rock music in general, let alone prog rock specifically. Obviously there's a jazz-fusion vibe on most of the tracks, but not all jazz-fusion is jazz-rock, let alone prog rock-fusion.
>>

Polish prog
>>
>>113736796
It's just a more electric version of Masada, hence the name. It's got some of that Naked City manic energy for sure, but it's just Masada cranked up to 11, and Masada is just Zorn-style Free Jazz with Klezmer influences.

It’s good but look up their live performance in Munich 1982. They perform a lot of the songs from Discipline and they’re all better live, especially indiscipline. I’ve watched the concert many times and I never get sick of it. Belew the showman in his flamingo colored suit, Fripp the autist calmly shredding on his stool and Levin ascending to enlightenment while playing the Chapman stick. And of course the drums…

I always assumed it was nonsensical references to In The Court and just there to keep the song from being an instrumental. I don’t think Lake’s strong suite is (meaningful) lyrics, which was why he ended up hiring Sinfield a lot.

I don’t get it either. Battlefield is clearly talking about how warmongers ignore the effects of war on the planet and people while reaping the benefits. What’s so confusing about this?
>>
>>113743855
Well this applies more to Stones of Years and Mass which I think is half loosely connect with the theme of the song and half just filler that sounds cool. If you look back at the lyrics of Battlefield, that section is pretty straightforward, pretty similar to Emperor In His War Room

No? I mean it's King Crimson, written and played some the same or most of the same people.
The intro of Red isn't any more "brutal" than the last sequence of Starless, which is aggressive an jazzy in the same way that 21st Century Schizoid Man is, so that doesn't work.
Fallen angel is a "ballad" I guess but there are no "Woodwinds" in Fallen Angel and it's much more aggressive overall.
The word you're looking for with Moonchild and Providence is "improv" but ALL of Providence is a pared down improv session while Moonchild starts as a much more conventional song before going into improv.
The album that's a ripoff of Court is In the Wake of Poseidon.

7 Minutes really isn't that long for a Progressive Rock Song.

Yeah they did Ys is such a fucking good album. Really nice to see someone mentioning it.

Gentle Giant were definitely on drugs what the fuck are you talking about? Virtually every or every other musician from this period was on something.

>using drugs makes you a degenerate
That only applies to hard drugs. Sid was a heroine addict. The guys at GG probably experimented with lsd and weed like everyone did during the 70s

About regionality really. It would be fair to say that prog was predominantly white but moreso that most of it was from Western Europe. Mostly British and German really

Isn't Wattie an Arch Conservative?

nobody said it was

Ok yeah that's fair enough,I'm not going to try to argue that crack or heroin are good for you although I would assume most Progressive Rock Bands did Cocaine or something similar as well as maybe MDMA or whatever The 70s Equivalent would be.

Who’s Wattie?

I thought you were referring to the song "Muckie Pup" by 80s British Hardcore Punk Act "The Exploited",as opposed to a band called "Mucky Pup" which I'll assume was named in honor of him and/or his band.

Camel has a lot of masterpieces,really hard to say for sure.

Annon hasn't done Molly.

Oh yeah I was lol. I don’t know these assholes names, but yes, I was referring to the exploited cover of Mucky Pup. It doesn’t really matter because the melody is the same, but the exploited suck less than the band who created mucky pup. One good thing (and the only good thing about punk rock in general) I will give Mucky Pup is that it has a lot of energy.

Time to make a new general

It's a well done rip off of Talking Heads by better musicians than Talking Heads

It just felt a bit too polished and the fact that Greg's voice wasn't as great didn't really give it justice

Lenny Zakatek is the best

Listening to Peace – An End right after Tarkus is a vibe
