I'm still getting into the genre, but so far I like contemporary prog better. Frances the Mute, In Absentia, Insurgentes, and ├ćnima or Lateralus if you count them as prog rock (which is debatable, but I've seen people say they are).

In 70s prog, I like The Dark Side of the Moon and In the Court of the Crimson King a lot. Red by King Crimson and It'll All Work Out in Boomland by T2 is very good too. Close to the Edge, Thick as a Brick and Third are good but I don't think I'll listen to them very often; I'm not into Genesis, didn't like Moving Pictures by Rush much either. I'll try Gentle Giant and Marillion next. Need to give Rock Bottom another listen too.

I don't know what's irony anymore, but Genesis is shit and could definitly qualify as le wrong generation fedora-core, while Foucault is a fedora would describe as "muh SJWur"

It's unlikely you'll like Marillion if you didn't like Genesis or Rush, I'd recommend getting into Van der Graaf Generator next.

How do I into prog other than King Crimson? Yes and Genesis are 2cheesy4me, and I already know I need to listen to Robert Wyatt/Soft Machine.

yes and genesis can be super cheesy, but there is good stuff by them. for example, fragile by Yes is just some good straightup rock with prog features. other groups you'd want to check out are henry cow (somewhat similar to soft machine by more avante garde) and maybe some zappa qualifies?
>>
>>53417913
you might like some jethro tull too. try out thick as a brick for total folk proginess or stand up for some more blues type stuff

>>53412505
Don't forget getting around Larks' Tongues in Aspic

It's funny, I find much of King Crimson's work infinitely more cheesy than Genesis.

I always felt a self-awareness in Genesis that's lacking in most other prog bands. They were legitimately funny--both with Gabriel and without him.

I agree about Yes, though. Mostly because of Anderson.

>>53418724
King Crimson is extremely pretentious, but I love it. You can tell they really thought they were making art with each album. The album art for In The Wake of Poseidon is really telling of how they thought of their music. If you can sort of agree with the level of pretension in their music, then you'll love it. If you're not as into the music then all that pretension is just going to seem like all of the self indulgent nonsense prog is mocked for.

I didn't care much for it som years earlier, but it has grown in unbelievable heights the more I listened to it.

Selling England is a very close second and Nursery Cryme is also GOAT.

I've never listened to prog-rock besides King Crimson (unless krautrock counts), what should I listen to next?

my favorites are Lark's Tongue In Aspic, Red and of coure ITCOTCK
>>
>>53422625
Larks and Red are weirder, less typical prog sounding albums than their stuff before that. I'd recommend checking out Magma for something that doesn't necessarily sound like it, but it has that experimental spirit. For more traditional prog (which I'm far more versed in) check out:
Genesis - Foxtrot
Yes - Close to the Edge
Camel - Mirage
Gentle Giant - Octopus
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
