There are quite a few pieces from bands that aren't prog as a whole which nevertheless qualify as prog songs. Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" are the most famous examples. "Fool's Overture" is another. I call this phenomenon "slipstream prog". But then Supertramp are much closer to being a prog band than either Queen or Led Zeppelin.

I'd say overlooked by me, personally.  I dig the classic Tramp as much as anyone, but I've never been able to warm to most of Quietest......maybe it's that I've owned a first generation CD copy that leaves the whole thing limp.....no sass, weak highs and inaudible lows.....then again, maybe not - nothing ever caught my ear from EITQM, especially the epic Overture.

Convince me that an original vinyl pressing may show me the way.....I've always sided with the more acoustic end of Supertramp.  Crisis is their best, IMO, but their first, a full half of Stamped, and most all of Crime are all excellent.  EITQM - man, I've tried....and tried.  Nuttin'.  
I like to feel the suspense when you're certain you know I am there.....
