Locomotive Breath
Roundabout

These tracks led me away from the popular to the adventurous.

Hmm, lots.

Igor Wakhevitch - "Materia Prima"
Comus - "Winter is a Coloured Bird"

Was going to mention Soft Machine's "Moon in June" too

I agree with Logan by saying lot's.Far too many pieces have touched my life as I grew up.Brick in the wall comes to mind during the period of school riots,it became our anthem.
But a lot of head scratching later and I could pick a couple of pieces with great difficulty. Primary school I was exposed to Music Inspired By The Snow Goose by Camel. It is a creative piece of music and I feel much more creative and productive when I listen to it, and it brings back good memories of PE lessons and Art in primary.One of our teachers was with it and rather hip in the 70's and he introduced the class to this record.
 
The other piece of music I literally found laying in the gutter. It was a single by Renaissance called Northern lights/Opening out.Don't know what it was doing in the road, perhaps somebody used it as a Frisbee, but it came home with me and it got played to death. I still love that tune today some 40 years later.

Kraftwerk - Autobahn
The Residents - Third Reich & Roll (the part that was shown on Whistle Test in 1980)

These made me realise I could do it myself, and thus they changed my life.

Comfortably Numb got me into prog in the first place.

Octavarium got me into modern prog.

Vangelis - Pulstar
Magma - De Futura

These 2 pieces were the ones that broke through all the conventional boundaries for me.

Genesis -Cinema Show/ Firth of Fifth hooked me on prog (not the first prog stuff I heard), Fantasy's Alanderie and Memoriance Et après showed me how great prog can be. I know I said 4 not 2, I couldn't help it

Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Pts. 1-5)
I Talk to the Wind

I talk to the wind especially took me into the prog rock genre but Shine On is my favourite song ever.

Probably something like Roundabout & Turn it on Again.
 Entry level stuff but they got the ball rolling for me.

Yes' South Side of the Sky which showed me how truly adventurous prog could be and Crimso's One More Red Nightmare, as distinct a sound as any prog outfit could conjure. Both are evergreens for me and never grow tiresome. I'm left wanting more.
