Will Anyone Else Admit to Listening to Prog?

True. Speaking of, new Guided By Voices album is out today. Not quite prog, but definitely weird with prog bits.
I can see you absolutely loving this album. That melodic style isn't my thing but I can appreciate it from a distance. There's some good moments on this album so far, definitely, but this is way more a "Stig Album" than a "Crip album."

Edit: Some parts, the singer almost sounds like the guy from Aspirin Hammer.

I am looking for more prog rock suggestions both new and old. Like Genisys and Yes.

Check out Steven Wilson for new prog.


Marillion has been putting out great shit since the early eighties.

I'm a mark for Gazpacho but I don't know anyone who listens.

This song features the most piercing guitar note that I've ever heard. Listen in headphones for full effect. (Note at 4:30 or so mark)

Other honorable mentions:
I, Vigilante by Crippled Black Phoenix
Interludes For the Dead (feat. Neal Casal) from Circles Around The Sun although you should probably be a Dead fan for some of that.
Folklore by Big Big Train
Delusion Rain by Mystery
Mammoth by Beardfish is pretty Yessy I think, but I personally have to be in a certain mood for this one.
Anathema is good if you really want soaring, epic sounds.
Also Riverside is good for that, and they're a great background soundtrack for that.

And Heeler would kill me if I didn't acknowledge Therion, which is like Gothic Viking Prog.

I hear that his XTC mixes are stellar.

If you ever have a chance to listen to a SW remix of one of those XTC albums, I'd love to hear your take. Ballad of Peter Pumpkin Eater in 5.1!

New Dream Theater album dropped today. Great album for fans of prog and lots of great metal parts for the harder metal types around here.
