I feel like I'm stealing from David here, but Lucio Battisti must feature in this list:

They sound interesting on a quick listen......thanks for the recommendation, Mascodagama!

I agree wholeheartedly, Quinino, on 'Curator of Butterflies' - The Passing Widow" from 'The Second Brightest Star' has a similar uplifting effect on me - bringing me both smiles and tears at the same time! Maybe I'm just a soft, old bugger!

Oh wow, a lot to listen to here! I don't know if there's time for me to get to all of it. I'll have to just go for the best of the best I think. The stuff that everyone seems to agree on, like BBT, Dreadnaught, Lucio Battisti, etc. 

You're all awesome. Thumbs Up

"Now her bones are crumbling, too
Used to find a brighter view
Of life without the one she knew
And loved so well

She bears a message to us all
We hold the net to catch our fall
Keeping strong and standing tall
In deeds and words we tell

So, give a hand to the passing widow
She runs far from home
Going strong, as beautiful as ever
She shows us all we're not... alone"

YESESIS - To reach the smiles, you must travel the road of tears..... Nice thread by the way!

Plenty of great stuff posted so far. I'll just chime in with a few of my own favourite feelgood prog albums:

Cherry Five - Cherry Five
Gotic - Escenes
Gryphon - Red Queen To Gryphon Three
Gryphon - Raindance
Yezda Urfa - Boris

If you want to be "uplifted," look no further than FZ's Sheik Yerbouti. Vulgar as hell, but if you aren't on the floor holding your sides, you don't have a pulse!

I think DT's first album When Dream and Day Unite fits the bill. 

Twelfth Night's Fact & Fiction, too!

Oh I know that FZ album well lol, love the Dylan impression.. spot on! lmao

And yeah I should give DT another chance. Listened to them a while back(along with PT) and just wasn't really feeling any of it, but thanks for the suggestions!

Oh wow, thank you friend for posting that, that's actually beautiful. And yes, you're right.. there's a lot in the spiritual stuff that I read about have to go through the bad stuff to be able to appreciate the good stuff, etc. Glad you appreciate this thread. :)

^ I think you'll like them. All of them (except Gotic) are quite Yes-like at times, and Yezda Urfa has a strong Gentle Giant touch as well in their vocal arrangements. As for Gotic, they're more of jazz fusion-oriented, along the lines of Return To Forever, but their music is still very airy, romantic and serene.
