I’ve been meaning to check out this French Canadian album, but just seem to get distracted by other musical interests. How would you describe their sound? Symphonic prog?

While Harmonium is listed on the site as symphonic prog, Cinquieme Saison is definitely more of a prog folk album. Very gentle and pastoral with lots of gentle acoustic guitar and flute-driven sections.

Yeah, I guess that's a perfect description. Just check out either "Depuis l'automn" (for a 10 min vocal song) and / or "Histoires sans paloles" (for an instrumental 17 min journey) ASAP. They are among the most beautiful pieces of prog you could hear.

Thank you so much. I’ll definitely have to check this band out.

Before bed, I'm big on Ragnarok's debut album from 1976, the perfect mellow album. 

Metamorfosi's INFERNO is another one before bed, the whole journey on that album is quite peaceful, with great power at the same time. 

Milgres dos Peixes--while not on this site--is definitely prog, very tropical, very vocal, layered, and beautiful. 

On top of the Geese and the Ghost recommendation, The Meadows of Englewood by Ant is perhaps even more relaxing. The 36-minute epic is a cascading, beautiful track that is probably Ant's best.

I would think Entangled and Mad Man Moon also. 

Agreed!

Never matters to me but hearing Dark Matter (P Tree) lulls... and the awakens as my sensibilities get freaked and I then have unquiet slumbers...

Inferno for going to sleep? Not unless I wanted to have nightmares I guess... I do love that album, but I don't particularly think it's a relaxing one. Neither is it particularly heavy... and the nightmares thing was more of a joke, but I wouldn't call it relaxing either. Still a wonderful album that should be checked out.

The song that I played the most before bed is The Undercover Man by VdGG.

That is a good one... I did not even think to consider it!

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?

I wouldn't listen to prog rock before going to bed. It's too complex and involved. Keeps me awake. I tend to listen to stuff like Eno or ambient electronica. Nothing with lyrics and jazzy twists and turns.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I'm partial to Ulver's Perdition City and Shadows of the Sun. The latter is especially useful for facilitating that somewhat gentle, disassociated state of mind needed to cast off into oblivion. It's also the perfect length.

On another note, avoid catchy material. If you're like me, you'll wake in the middle of the night for a piss and suddenly find your brain replaying the same melodic hook all the way into the wee hours of the morning, at which point, fatigued and frustrated, you might just decide that music is in fact a great inexorable evil set upon mankind by prankish gnomes to drive us into insanity. Maybe.
