5 stars Is this album "prog"? Should it merit the "prog" label?

What is "prog" anyway?! Does it stand for "progressive" music? If so, then for the time it was released Ommadawn MOST certainly qualifies as progressive.

Does this album have tricky time signatures and instense drumming or ripping guitar leads? No, because MO's music is not about that. MO offers a very unique and original music that only he can claim sole ownership of. Some will say that MO was the the precursor to today's new age. I don't know about that. New Age is an absurd classification and one that has gobbled up artists undeserving of such trivial nomenclature.

Bottom line: The frist three MO albums are masterpieces. All of them different, but yet enough alike that they make up a nice threesome that every prog fan should own.
