What are the most relaxing prog songs in your opinion?

Not annoying relaxing... and not heavy relaxing... like relaxing relaxing (if you know what I mean).

Good music isn't dead, it just isn't on radio. Good art is being made, but you don't go to any museums or hang with the right people.

And if you aren't really looking, what do you expect to find?

When I go to bed and want to relax, I usually listen to Soft Machines Third album.

Especially Slightly all the Time, very relaxing and helps with sleep

I don't know if you'd consider that prog but everything that has ambient elements could be what you're looking for. Brian Eno, Edgar Froese, Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Ashra, etc. are all worth checking out.

It is not exactly what I am looking for... I would not listen to anything ambient as prog.

Talk Talk's last two albums are very relaxing and very progressive (too progressive to be called prog for some people). And then you can look for post rock bands influenced by them like Bark Psychosis.

Same for you, you're a part time prog rocker as well. Perhaps we get pizza and have a party Clap

Genesis’ Ripples from A Trick of the Tail is a nice before bed piece.

I’m not sure if I like being called a ‘part-time prog rocker’ as this music has never left me even when I pursue other musical interests. Yes, some pizza would be great. I’ll have double pepperoni and cheese.

I guess there's too many songs I would consider relaxing for before going to bed. However, the one particular song I have used when I'm stressed that helps me relax and feel better is "Shine on You Crazy Diamond"... all 25 min together. I can almost feel it rearanging my nerves and my head.

Ah yes, always a good one to mellow out to. Smile

Prog before bed - any early Floyd, especially live, most Krautrock, Space/Psych, Canterbury etc.
at the same time, I can relax if I spin Opeth or Slayer, or whatever sounds I find 'soothing'. VDGG, Univers Zero or Magma. Whatever. As long as the tunes are something you enjoy, then it works.
One thing though - if I chose to spin Deathspell Omega before crashing, I do recall having nightmares - well, not heart-attack dodge, but horror-themed dreams. No blood, from memory.

I love falling asleep to Damnation by Opeth, with honourable mentions to Significant Other by Steven Wilson, Entangled by Genesis, side 2 of Wind and Wuthering (bar All in a Mouse's Night ffs, ruddy filler...), bits and pieces from the Snow Goose...
Stop me from dreaming?
Okay :-(

That piece is absolutely awesome. My favorite part of Trick of a Tail!

I often play Dead Can Dance before bed time....great music for relaxation and providing interesting dreams.
I also enjoy Caravanserai by Santana and the early Moody Blues albums.
