Go to http://www.random.org/
Choose a number from 1 to 56
Listen to the corresponding album and tell us your opinion!

Feel free to post any album related to Prog. This includes Math Rock, Avant Prog, Experimental/Art Rock, and even Jazz, Folk and Metal!

Update for the Chart in short (now with Google Spreadsheet, so it's easier to make fast changes). Any changes I should make?
Oh, and feel free to ask for recs!

Add Saucerful Of Secrets by Pink Floyd. Essential prog in my mind.

why do you pretend to be a girl on the internet

There's no prog metal on the chart I think, but it says all styles

I'm listening to Drones (1980) by Jean-Philippe Goude
Now I know where Koenjihyakkei got their sound from.
Very fun and upbeat, sounds nothig like the cover.

>>50824411
Will do!
The problem is choosing which Pink Floyd album, since everybody thinks different.

>>50824416
I don't.

>>50824439
Yup. That's because Prog Metal is a whole new genre that is almost as big as regular Prog.
>>
>>50824439
Yeah. The title should really be changed to "Prog Rock - All Styles" or something. Prog Metal could use its entirely own chart.
>>
I don't see any neo-prog. I know the genre isn't very well liked here but it's still a well established subgenre of prog
>>
>>50824465
>I don't.

talk about intentionally vague. you are a guy, not a girl, you mentally ill fuck.
>>
>>50824518
I will just keep it at Prog, because there's also Prog Folk and Jazz. If someone asks why there is no Prog Metal I will just link them this chart.

>>50824560
If it's a well established gnere, what is Neo-Prog, exactly?
I will add some in the next version anyways.

>>50824584

>>50824695
It's typified by the use of atmospheric guitar and synth soloing with symphonic leanings, with a tendency towards floating synth layers and dreamy soloing. An additional trait is the use of modern synths rather than vintage analogue synths and keyboards. The main reasons for Neo-Progressive artists to be separated from the ones exploring Symphonic Prog in the first place are the above, as well as a heavier emphasis on song-form and melody than some of their earlier symphonic counterparts.
>>
>>50824774
Sounds good.
Which one should I add?
>>
>>50824794
Not really sure, I don't really like the genre myself, but I know it's fairly popular in some circles.

Yeah. Well, my chart might be shit, but I'm considering everyone's point of view.

Why is it so average though? What would you add/remove?
>>
>>50825894
>Why is it so average though? What would you add/remove?
I dunno it just feels like there's way too much focus on obscure stuff, avant-prog and math rock, which is really misleading. Most people will see it, recognise like two albums, be confused about where all the normal classic albums are, then disregard the whole chart because it looks like mostly weird shit, especially in the modern section.

I know I did it a little bit, even though I know like 15 albums on there

>>
>>50825894
Like, I'm just looking up the bottom row on RYM, the only one I know is Perhaps, and most of the genres there look like this, or some combination of math rock and avant-prog, and they don't have very high ratings or many ratings, which isn't great considering some people will want to use the chart for getting into prog

I know aggregate sites aren't perfect, but this chart seems to be ridiculously biased towards your own taste, and most people are just going to ignore it because of that.
>>
>>50825991
>I dunno it just feels like there's way too much focus on obscure stuff
Definitely not. It's all relatively well known stuff that brings new things to the Prog table.
>avant-prog and math rock,
Well, every Avant-Prog album here sounds very different from each other, and the same goes for Math Rock
>Most people will see it, recognise like two albums, be confused about where all the normal classic albums are, then disregard the whole chart because it looks like mostly weird shit, especially in the modern section.
There are like 30 very well known/classic albums there.
Modern section you are sort of right, but that's because most people think Prog died in the 70s.

Still, I had the idea of making this chart in a google spreadsheet, so that every album has some "notes" with a DL link, a youtube sample, and a description of the album. It would make the chart a lot more accessible.

the best thing you could probably do is redub it from "essential" to an "esoteric" (or something along those lines) and kick out Yes/KC/JT/etc
or maybe divide into two categories, mild bobby sauce and tangy spongy sauce

Marillion
IQ
Pendragon

>>
>>50826061
I don't really like National Health, I don't get them. Still, Collapso is a great track, especially because of those "Synths"?

>>50825991
I would appreciate it if you could tell me what to add and remove btw.

>>50826094
Yeah, Perhaps is the least well known, but that's because it's from 2013, so it's obvious that not a lot of people have heard it. But it's there for a reason, which is the combination of multiple genres they make (Space Rock, Math Rock, Prog Rock, Heavy Metal, and Jazz Fusion in a very fun way).

>they don't have very high ratings or many ratings, which isn't great considering some people will want to use the chart for getting into prog
Well, that's their fault. The idea of the chart was make something with actually progressive albums, instead of stagnating with the same revivalist on the top of RYM's modern prog charts.

>this chart seems to be ridiculously biased towards your own taste,
Well, that's obvious, but few people are giving actual useful recs, so it's going to stay like that until someone else does something about it.

>and most people are just going to ignore it because of that.
I will add some Youtube samples so that people actually give those albums a try.

>>50826148
Haven't listened to it.

>>50826246
I already added those to the new version.

>>50826261
Okay, I already have Marillion and IQ.
Will check out the rest soon.
>>
>>50826287
>few people are giving actual useful recs
That's because if you were to make it properly it would involve dropping almost half of those albums and it's easier to just start again, which is what gallifrey did.

Where is he btw? thread's already an hour old and he hasn't showed up yet

Also Perhaps is the only one I know, and that's because they had their 15 minutes of fame on PA last year. I didn't really like it, too mathy for me.

WTB recs similar to Porcupine Tree and the Pineapple Thief and such

Sure would be easier if these were numbered.

I rolled 34, which is Ozric Tentacles - Erpland. I've already listened to it actually. My impression was that it these are very talented musicians and excellent improvisers (if they're improvising.) But I didn't find it very entertaining or exciting. It works fine as background music, but when I try to really listen it's 2mellow4me.

Re-rolled and got 21. Babu - Anabelas is going on my to-listen list.

>>50827495
Why not just use the one I'm already making? It has everything, with the exception of the Download links and samples. Just tell me which ones to add and we will have the perfect Prog chart.

I already have that covered under the album notes, with specific recs for more stuff similar to the album's genre.

Gentle Giant's Octopus is a very good start.

I have to say Genesis' 80s pop period is miles away better than Yes'. You still hear all that retarded Invisible Touch shit. Plus Abacab and their self titled are actually fairly decent. And they never put out anything as putrid as Big Generator.

Of course, only King Crimson made it through the decade without embarassing themselves (of the "popular" prog bands)

Put some goddamn Renaissance and Caravan on there already.

Turn of the Cards and In the Land of the Grey and Pink. Is it too pop for you or something? Nine Feet Underground is one of the best prog compositions ever.

Also, no Camel?

>>50828833
>Put some goddamn [...] Caravan on there already.
>Also, no Camel?
Soft machine is already on there, which is already a good representation of the Canterbury scene.
>>
>>50828951
Soft Machine represent the jazzier/psychedelic side, but not the more melodic side. I suppose Hatfield and the North fits that niche though.
>>
>>50828833
I still have to listen to Renaissance, but why Camel and Caravan? They add nothing new.
>Is it too pop for you or something?
Pop is cool. There are two Prog Pop albums in the chart and Gong.

>>50828785
That wasn't me. I never use that kind of sarcasm.

>>50828992
Exactly. You have HatN and Gong.
>>
>>50828992
Personally, I love Camel and prefer it to Soft Machine, but you have to draw the line somewhere or else the list gets too long or too focused on one subgenre. And IMO Soft Machine belongs on that list more because of its historical significance.
>>
>>50829015
The list says essential prog, not groundbreaking prog. How are you gonna tell me In the Land of the Grey and Pink is not essential prog. It's miles better than fucking Third, which is like shitty jazz fusion. You've got 60 albums there, and you only want to put one from one of the most productive progressive scenes there was?
>>
>>50829116
Maybe it's essential, but every other album in the chart is more esssential than it.
Third has a lot of historical importance and is considered one of the best by a lot of Progressive Rock sites. Calling it "shitty jazz fusion" only makes your point seem less convincing (not because you
Also, there are a lot of other Canterbury albums that are more diverse and groundbreaking (yes, being groundbreaking is important, because one of the reasons I made this chart was people saying that there was no good modern progressive rock, and I mean progressive as in moving forwards).
I'll give it another listen tomorrow and reconsider it though.

Fine fine maybe I got a bit too vitriolic, but I just personally prefer the first two Soft Machine albums to Third. I really don't see why Caravan isn't considered groundbreaking at all, its not like all members of the Canterbury scene sounded alike.

Even if you don't put them on the list, I recommend to anyone who wants to hear good melodic prog rock to check out Caravan, particularly In the Land of Grey and Pink and For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night.

On a different note, can Procol Harum be considered prog? Their first album was groundbreaking and is a clear influence on many on this list.

Hell, go ahead and pick Lumpy Gravy while you're at it.

I'm using a combination of both, and personally, I do find Uncle Meat better.
And none of the albums on the chart are shit or boring, you just have narrow tastes.

>>50830198

Hot Rats is more jazz fusion though

>>
>>50830227
I'm just fucking with you, I get where you're coming from but maybe we can also make a list of prog albums that are more accessible, more of an introduction? People need some time to get into this kind of music, and I think it would be easier on them to start with Fragile instead of Close to the Edge, for instance. Or Gentle Giant's self titled instead of Octopus. That's how I got into it anyway.

>>50830262
You've got Mahavishnu Orchestra and that's clearly jazz fusion. Plus Third is basically jazz fusion too. Clearly the line between jazz fusion and prog rock is hard to define, and pretty much any Zappa album that could be considered prog could also be considered jazz fusion.
>>
>>50830227
Also I don't mean to say Wikipedia is a great source for music classification, but it does list Hot Rats (and the great Burnt Weeny Sandwich) as progressive but not Uncle Meat.

I'm working on it, don't worry. I'm going to put an asterisk to the least/most accessible ones, so that people who want to get into Prog listen to the easy stuff, or the experienced ones want something more challenging.
>People need some time to get into this kind of music, and I think it would be easier on them to start with Fragile instead of Close to the Edge, for instance.
That's a fair point. On the google doc I will put a Liked? Go for X Y DIdn''t liked it? Go for W, V. Do you get what I mean?
>Or Gentle Giant's self titled instead of Octopus. That's how I got into it anyway
Self titled is pretty bad compared to the rest, and not really that accessible

>You've got Mahavishnu Orchestra and that's clearly jazz fusion
It's Prog Jazz Fusion. The difference is that Hot Rats sticks to a single theme in it's songs, while MO uses a lot of themes per song.
>Plus Third is basically jazz fusion too
Same for Third, and Third is not only Jazz Fusion, but Canterbury
>Clearly the line between jazz fusion and prog rock is hard to define, and pretty much any Zappa album that could be considered prog could also be considered jazz fusion
Multi-sectional songs is the key to differentiate those

>>50830521
Define Prog then
Just because Wiki,RYM, PA, or whatever says it's a certain genre doesn't really mean it is
>>
>Premiata Fomeria Marconi - Per un Amico
Never heard of it before, listening to this for the first time...
It's okay, not quite my cup of tea though. I'm enjoying it, but I don't think I'll come back for a second listen.
>>
>>50830602
Outside of the fact that it looks ugly as fuck, that's a far better list of albums. now make it look better
>>
>>50830678
Do you like Yes or ELP?
If the answer is yes, give it another listen, because it's like both of them combined and better.

The Flower Kings - Desolation Rose
>hey you wanted some neo-prog thread, here you go, with some symphonic prog in there for good measure

yeah, I'm a big Yes fan. Like I said, I'm enjoying this album, it's decent, it just doesn't strike me as anything amazing.

It's still your first listen. There are a lot of hidden treasures through the album.
>>
>>50829685
>Should I go with Uncle Meat?
Probably Burnt Weeny Sandwich since it has "the little house i used to live in" and that's the closest Zappa gets to being prog. Or maybe Roxy & Elswhere

Gryphon anyone?

Red Queen to Gryphon Three is pretty essential if you ask me.

Also, I know most people don't really consider 10cc prog, and I suppose they aren't, but Sheet Music is definitely a great art rock album.
>>
>>50830602
>>50830888
yeah man, seriously, put Three Friends on there, that album was phenomenal.

Ah fuck knew I was missing a big name

They can sneak into symphonic right? Just?

Need to decide which of the three on the right to shove out, and which album would be best
>>
>>50830851
how does this compare to that album of theirs with the mermaid on front? that used to be one of my favorites, haven't listened to it in quite a while though
>>
I really like the Muffins.

I've had them on the HD for a long time, and I knew I liked them, but I finally started retreading some albums like 185 and Manna/Mirage and I adore the sound.

I guess I really have a love for the Canterbury Sound and the RIO Sound.

Anyone given this one a listen? I'd recommend it.
>>
>>50830728
>Do you like Yes or ELP?
I always thought it was more on the early king crimson side
>>
>>50830950
Nearly all the Gentle Giant albums have similar ratings on RYM, would that be the best one? Want to pick one that covers their sound pretty well and is a good entry

>>50831034
I think it's miles better but I hated Aquarius so maybe not for you. Visions is better than both though.
>>
>>50831083
>Want to pick one that covers their sound pretty well and is a good entry
Octopus
>>
>>50831083
Acquiring the Taste maybe. I personally like their self titled a lot as well.
>>
>>50831182
Me too, their debut is pretty underrated.
>>
>>50831182
gentle giant is pretty much pure gold down the line

I agree with you on Gryphon.
Red Queen to Gryphon Three is truly amazing and should be essential prog-folk

I plan to add links to further listening under each of the subgenres, so I'll definitely put that in for folk. Also Harmonium, which I was considering putting in over Comus because it's probably more prog, but I personally prefer Comus

give this a try

hey Gallifrey. what about Hosianna Mantra by Popol Vuh?

I vote for Civilian, asshole.

Am I really the only one here who likes Renaissance? Annie Haslam has such a beautiful voice...
>>
>>50831432
Didn't really think of them. But they would be under Krautrock probably and that would require dropping one of Can/Faust/Neu, which are pretty much the core three of the genre, and I don't want to expand specific subgenres too much in this initial chart

Also Amon Duul II would probably be above them
>>
>>50831414
Holy shit, I completely forgot about Harmonium. I don't wanna write the name of the album, but it's the one of the five seasons. it's a beautiful album, and hard to decide between that and Combs.
>>
>>50831534
I haven't actually heard them but I know a lot of people who like them

>>50831549
The one with the grass and the long title and shit
>>
>>50831536
well, you have a point

>>50831549
L'Heptade was pretty awesome too but it's way too long

While we're waiting for people to make up their fucking minds on GG, which album should we drop to fit them in

God you guys all suck

I'll probably repost these at the start whenever we next have a prog thread

This might be the only non shitty thread on /mu/ right now.
