among modern prog bands, which could be called post-progressive rock I recommend:

Steven Wilson (obviously)
The Pineapple Thief
Gazpacho
Il Rumore Bianco
Lazuli
La Coscienza di Zeno
The Secret Sits

Of old: IQ and Marillion.

More recently: no specific favourites. I have heard some good albums by Grand Tour, Magenta, Comedy of Errors and Nine Stones Close in recent years. The most recent album by Nine Stones Close will probably end on top of my 2016 list, but this one has more to do with Heavy Prog than with Neo, unless my ears are mistaken.

Before i'm blown out the water, this French band (and this lp in particular) has most of the hallmarks of 'Neo-prog' style before Marillion, IQ, Twelfth Night and Pendragon came on the scene.. it was released in 1978 so not far off. If you like very early Marillion you will probably appreciate this...

If you love the Neo, Multi-Story's debut East/West is essential listening!

Oh ya, I absolutely love "In Sheltered Winds"!  I think it's really cool to hear Peter Nichols in a band without a keyboardist so his voice is even more out front than usual Wink

I love Mona Lisa!  I found them through being a huge Ange fan (considered "Symphonic Prog" on PA) but I can hear the Neo style connection you mention as well.  Hopefully some people will give this album a try and if they like it, I'd also highly recommend the 2 excellent Mona Lisa albums previous to this one (Le Petit Violon de Monsieur Gregoire:1975 and Grimaces:1977) though be warned, Mona Lisa is very heavy on the dramatic French vocals which I love, but they may be a bit much for others to take Wink

That's good to hear.  Sometimes when these 70's only prog bands reformed a couple decades later the results weren't so good LOL

The concert's on DVD, but it doesn't show the band entering through the lobby, tossing flowers (LOL) and serving wine & cheese to the audience in the middle of the set!

True, but if people who wouldn't normally be exposed to the band check them out and like them because of this thread, isn't that a good thing Wink

Ange are great too!.. I was introduced to them in the late 70's.. I felt that the approach they took to the style of music of Genesis and King Crimson in particular, pre-dated the 'Neo' idea in that they were creating their own music by respectfully/ reverentially referencing these (slightly) earlier bands but in a particularly accentuated and stylized way.. which, after all, is all that Marillion, IQ etc were doing a few years later..

I also feel that Eloy's late 70's output (Colours, Planets & Time to Turn) was pre-empting the sound of the new wave of British progressive rock (NWOBPR)
