    I'm chilling here to Yes's album Tales from Topographic Oceans. It's pretty fucking kick ass, chill and trippy.

    Who else likes this wonderful genre?

    Porcupine Tree are a great prog-rock band. Not too familar with many others. Opeth - Damnation was very prog-rock too, that was a good album.

    I've heard some stuff by Porcupine Tree....it's pretty cool.

    I've been listening to a few neo-progressive bands like IQ and Marillion :bowdown: they are awesome.

    Dream Theater is also pretty good...they have a great guitarist

    The new PT album comes out mid-march I believe. I'm looking forward to it. Yea DT are ok, their guitarist is definetely their best feature, but I never really got into them. A good prog-rock album in the same vein is Ayreon - The Human Equation. There are sometimes 4-5 different vocalists on one track.

    I'd love to add this genre into my ipod music list, but I feel the term "progressive" is too subjective for me to ever figure out which bands are pushing the boundaries. I consider APC, Radiohead and a few others to be Prog Rock, but its so difficult to think of more.

    Well if you wanna call it prog rock based solely on pushing the boundaries then I think you'd have to definitely include Tool in there.

    BTW the new TMV is freaking amazing. New leak is 320kb/sec, but don't worry I'll be at the store on March 1st to get my copy.
