Recommend me some underrated Progressive Rock albums
That's only on rym; rym specializes in metal and prog more than any other genres. Go to any other community and prog will be as fairly rated as any other genre
Btw Sumut by Sume is some underrated progressive rock.
I hope you don't think ITCOTCK is underrated.
You're not really wrong, but there are definitely prog albums which aren't as well known as they should be.
I am a huge fan of Yes.
>My favorite album.
Not a huge prog fan, but I thought it was enjoyable.
when prog hits post-rock people look the other way and it's tragic
There's some, but it's mostly either extremely derivative of English prog (Starcastle) or just kind of questionable in general (Kansas). Rush may be the only great North American prog band from the 70s.
And also the album named Spartacus (by the same band)
Don't know if you can call it underrated but whatever, just listen to it if you haven't
>inb4 not prog rock
Good point, but listen to it anyways
Most underrated Ango Prog I can think of.
John Wetton - Vox and Bass
Eddie Jobson - Keys and Electric Violin
Terry Bozzio - Drums
The swedish prog (progressive) scene is very good, but I haven't listened to enough to give solid recs. If you're interested, try fläsket brinner, bo hansson, and samla mammas manna.
That höstsonaten album is the only one i've heard. People here love the band so I'm sure they have more exiting stuff in the discography.
Also devil doll is ok. Overrated by those who've heard it, but still a very unique and good band.
Asia Minor - Between Flesh & Divine
Finnish prog represent
Ommadawn is great.
It was because Mike Oldfield went through that whole "rebirth" bullshit and turned into a pop artist.
Why is pop always the fate of prog rock bands?
Along with Wigwam, Tasavallan Presidentti is the other big Finnish prog group of the 70's
Both worth checking out for fans of 70's prog, particularly of the Canterbury variety
At least Yes's pop (Big Generator) was good
I like the pop as well as the prog from bands like Genesis and Yes, you can still have quite proggy songs on a pop album, take Abacab for example. Home by the Sea and Dodo/Lurker had some prog parts
Anima Latina by Lucio Battisti
Definitely underrated for some reasons:
1) it's italian
2) even italians ignore that Battisti was into progressive in the mid-70's
3) latin prog rock, a very specific sub-genre
4) not easy listening (compared to other prog works in the same period)
In my opinion, it's a great work and it's as good as (if not even better than) the best albums of the most famous prog bands in the early 70's
Yeah you're right. I am a big Peter Gabriel fan but he had his pop phase to made his money before he came back to prog. Every time I hear Solisbury Hill I die a little inside. At least he went back though.
That's because prog is really underrated everywhere else and yet produces better music than your generic indie
What was the last time Pitchfork or Rolling Stone have positively reviewed a prog album?
Is that really underrated? That album is amazing and a lot of people know it.
Not sure how popular this is on /mu/ but it's definitely worth checking out. a bit medieval
Try some stuff here
Ignore the metalcore and basic prog metal sections
Forget what /mu/ thinks. Like many other boards its all meme opinions, with a few unique individuals. It doesn't take an especially bright person to know that Alan Parson Project is very, very good prog. Good taste.
Oh, and 666 by Aphrodite's Child. One of the most diverse albums I've ever heard. Mixes psychedelic rock, pop, prog, experimental, metal, ambient, and avant garde stuff in one very, very neat package. And it was recorded in 70/71.
VDGG - Pawn Hearts
Gentle Giant - Free Hand
These are all highly acclaimed in prog circles, not underrated at all
It will always be Ommadawn before tubular bells. It was when he was in the heat of his depression, and you could hear it in his music. I know its selfish to be upset that he went through that whole 'rebirth' process, but imagine the beautiful music he could have made.
Yeah you're right. I only posted selling england because it was related Peter. Doesn't make it a bad suggestion though.
Great now some faggot detailed the thread
Pic related is a great underrated album though the
You aren't even good at this, it's so blatantly obvious that you're pretending to be more than one person
The postercount hasn't changed at all, it's still at 40. You can't win man
No, because that was the entire point of the argument. It was literally my statement that Muse are awful copies of Radiohead that caused you to sperg out so badly.
Oh you have more than one browser on your computer, cool.
>implying Solsbury Hill is bad
You must be one of those guys who think Duke is a bad album as well.
>postercount still at 41
God damn you sure are unsubtle.
How beautifully ironic is it that you claim that my argument is a meme when calling my argument a meme is a meme?
>implying Duke has been played 5 times a day on radio stations, and at most weddings you've ever been to
Yeah straight up. Its not that Solsbury Hill is a bad song, its just, man, when you've heard it for the 400,000th time it loses its luster.
Still enjoy Duke though. Genesis is one of those bands that never really got bad, no matter what 'phase' they were going through.
My general impression is that prog people kind of hate it from what I've seen, so in my view it's very underrated
I'm a sucker for spoken word and this aesthetic though
Not sure if I can vouch for the whole album, but I really like this segment
Portugal doesn't have much when it comes to Prog Rock, but the few albums that we do have, oddly enough are pretty good.
Two really notable ones from one of our most famous pop artists back when he was young and didn't suck:
I don't see this album mentioned as often as it should be. Very romantic album, easily my favorite Italian release
Van Der Graaf Generator - H to He Who am the Only One.... Fripp plays on a song
Loving what I'm hearing
>3 stars on progarchives
I really don't understand that site
Kansas's vocalist and lyrics is what I really despise. I feel like they're responsible for cheesiness in Prog like the worse 2/3's of Dream Theater's music and anything by Neal Morse.
Mars Volta gets shit on pretty frequently... Frances the Mute definitely has moments of brilliants and is completely underrated
Curved Air - Phantasmagoria (or Live)
Beggar's Opera - Pathfinder
Atomic Rooster - s/t
Lucifer Was - Underground and Beyond
Black Widow - Sacrifice
Anything by Birth Control
Most of these are pretty heavy prog, so if you don't like that then out of these you'll probably only like Curved Air out of this bunch
Japanese symphonic/canterbury-ish prog from the 80s
another Italian favorite, not sure if I'd call it "underrated" though
Norwegian hard prog with female vocalist (and a good one at that)
I'm PT myself, never really cared for José Cid, only knew him for sometimes singing a few radio rock songs on those Sunday afternoon programs.
Never knew he made god-tier prog in the 70s
This is the first time I've ever seen anyone other than myself post about either Birth Control or Beggars Opera on /mu/.
Also, Lucifer's Friend, particularly Banquet. It's kinda fusion-y. But progressive nonetheless.
Unsurprisingly noone has mentioned this album yet. It was produced in 1967 and it was a crucial work for the development of art rock.
José Cid / Quarteto 1111 made 3 Progressive Rock Albums in the 70s when he was young, which were thoroughly ignored by everyone, so he just stopped doing them and become a pop singer. Don't even bother looking up his discography, you'll be thoroughly disappointed.
If you want to complete his collection the last piece of Prog Rock he ever did was this:
This might be good. Haven't listened to it in full but what I heard was really good.
Yeah but when people aren't shitting on it they're saying it's their favorite of TMV
This for real tho
