It's time for another prog rock general! Prog February edition.

I want to listen to 20 prog albums in this month (one for each day except weekends). I used to think I was done with prog once I found King Crimson, but there seems to be a whole section of Zeuhl, Avant-Prog, RIO and basically all other things that are still worthwhile, even if they are not your typical Anglo-Prog (KC, Yes, Genesis, etc). Which albums should I get to expand my knowledge on /prog/? Posting library below

Bacamarte - Depois do Fim
Camel - Camel, Mirage, Breathless
Dream Theater - SDOIT, Octavarium, Change of Seasons BC&SL
Dün - Eros
Eivind Aarset - Sonic Codex
EL&P - Brain Salad Surgery
Focus - Moving Waves, Focus III, Hamburguer Concerto, Mother Focus, Focus, Hocus Pocus
Frank Zappa - Cruising With..., Hot Rats, Waka Jawaka, The Grand Wazoo, Apostrophe, Overnite Sensation
Genesis - Trespass, Nursery Crime, Foxtrot, Selling England(...), The Lamb Lies Down(...)
I Signori Della Gallassia - Iceman
Jethro Tull - Stand Up, A Passion Play, Thick as A Brick, Aqualung, Heavy Horses, Songs From The Wood
Kansas - Leftoverture, Point of Know Return
King Crimson - All of it
Magma - Magma, MDK
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire, The Inner Mounting Flame
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Pink Floyd - All worthwhile albuns
Rick Wakeman - The six wives(...)
Robert Fripp - Exposure
Rush - 2112, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures
Tha Alan Parsons Project - I Robot
The Mothers of Invention - Weasels Ripped my Flash
Tool - Anima
Yes - TYAlbum, Close to the Edge, Fragile, Drama, Fly From Here

So, what am I lacking in /prog/?
Jokes on you, I already have it
>So, what am I lacking in /prog/?
Modern stuff, good prog metal, and avant-prog that isn't zeuhl or Zappa

Get your hands on:
Samla Mammas Manna - Maltid
Area - Arbeit Macht Frei
Peter Hammill - The Silent Corner & the Empty Stage
Riverside - Anno Domini High Definition
Leprous - Bilateral
Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet
Phideaux - Snowtorch
Mice on Stilts - An Ocean Held Me
Blindead - Affliction
Thank you!
Prog folk rock is slept on too hard
What should I get from ELP? Already have Trilogy, ELP and Tarkus.
That's more than enough ELP

Although some people would say Brain Salad as well
How bad is ELP?
I think people usually stop on Jethro Tull
>IIII'l make love to you
dun dun dun dun-dun-dun
>In all good plaaaaaces
get some canterbury scene.
also drop ELP and Rick Wakeman, they aren't worth it
Pretty bad, but have moments of decency, unlike a lot of today's wank-core bands. I blame them and Wakeman for killing prog by going too far with pretentious shit
ELP seems to be unnecessary/derivative/a bad version of other bands, I agree with that
But Rick Wakeman actually makes something different.
Also, how do I get into Canterbury?
>But Rick Wakeman actually makes something different.
Aimlessly slapping an organ until all the notes overlap and make a rather disgusting mess of tones may be different, but it ain't good.
Well, it's been some time I heard it. Probably need to hear it again nwo

Is Riverside good?
What are the worthwhile pink floyd albums?
Is Steve Howe solo any better?

Kind of
Try these
The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute
The Mars Volta - Deloused In The Comatorium
Rishloo - Feathergun
Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused To Sing
Tool - Lateralus
Piper, Dark Side, Wish You Were Here. Check out the rest if you're a big fan, but most are variants on the same theme
Of course not
Basically everything before the Wall, I guess

Listen to this anon

Any good /prog/ releases this year?
listen to
Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom
Soft Machine - third
Caravan - ItLoGP
Gong - flying teapot
Hatfield and the North - s/t
National health - s/t
Soft machine - volume two
and report back

Agreed. Also,
Omar Rodriguez Lopez - Old Money
Omar Rodriguez Lopez - Doatimashite (live)
Unicorn Porn - The White Stag
Closure In Moscow - Pink Lemonade

There's a lot of great contemporary Prog-rock actually. OP should listen to more new stuff!
Needs more Gentle Giant
Isn't Gentle Giant the typical Anglo-prog though?
>Closure In Moscow - Pink Lemonade
Counter-recommending this. No one should sit through such shit

Not really typical, they're like Genesis but with a bit more outside influence. Touch of avant-prog, a bit of canterbury. Famous for really interesting a cappella segments
What do you think of Thrak? To me it's not on par with their best, but still a fantastic album.
>Unicorn Porn - The White Stag
Can I get a link for this?

Yes I checked the sticky and soulseek.
Points for trying but it's not really all that interesting. Extra points for making something relatively decent in the prog vacuum that was the 90's

>no comus
I don't know why they don't get any love around here. They're a really interesting blend of psych folk and prog rock.
they get a whole lotta love in general
can do a couple threads without em, eh?

Where has grorious nipponese progrockku been hiding all this time?
I've seen them posted maybe once on here, sans the times I've posted about them.
They get so much love around here, dude. It just gets boring it people bring them up every time.
Seriously? My count would be well over a hundred now, it's one of the few prog albums /mu/ as a whole discusses.
dude, Comus is not good. I can't believe you assholes talked me into listening to that.

And, yeah it get's talked about and praised here constantly. I think it's just because it uses folk instrumentation primarily.
Someone recommended it right here>>53288720
Hey it's that one guy who doesn't like Comus

How are you doing, that one guy who doesn't like Comus

You're the only one, by the way.
>I think it's just because it uses folk instrumentation primarily.
Also because, you know, it's fucking dope?
