Must listen-to prog rock albums/bands that aren't King Crimson?
This is fucking god-tier prog.
The first album featuring Collins as the singer, but it still sounds like classic, proggy Genesis at their best.
Don't know what most of the prog fans here think of them, but The Dark Third by Pure Reason Revolution is pretty damn good imo.
Uh. I haven't listened to prog for a few years so I never was in with the /mu/ shit so maybe you guys haven't heard of these
Spock's Beard (plenty of releases, all solid), Enchant (a bit cheesy but that's all prog), Deja Vu (older band, overshadowed, quality shit, catchy too), Beardfish (newer, kind of fun), and uhm.
I deleted most mine I guess.... Used to be all I listen to then I deleted half it.
Ayreon? Have you listened to them?
Uh. Human Equation.
And Dream Theater gets shit on but they aren't bad if you don't think you're some intellectual for listening to them, they make fun melodic-as-fuck music with good energy.
