Hi, I'm new on this forum and here's a collage of some prog rock from my personal iTunes collection. Just curious as to how similar my tastes are compared to other users here. Here's the hi-res version of this collage: https://ibb.co/eaqri8

That's quite a collage! You and I have 53 albums in common. Some of the more unusual ones are Gracious, Quiet Sun, and Maxophone. You even have a few titles I want to get, and I sure that if you saw my collection I would have some you would be interested in. My total collection probably numbers close to 5000 but not all of those are Prog.

I believe I own 81 of those, though I recognize many more than that. It's quite an eclectic selection.

That's great to hear! My total collection including non-prog stuff is around 3000+. I also listen to a lot of jazz/jazz fusion, krautrock, zeuhl, ambient, new wave, Brazilian MPB/tropicalia, classical/minimalism, funk, soul, afrobeat, old school hip-hop etc.

Not a big Tull fan although I've only listened to Aqualung and Thick As A Brick.

You are talking about a digital collection and not a physical media collection?

I heard 154 and own 38. In many cases I own other albums from the same band, or had a copy in the past, or they've been on my wishlist for a while.

Both, I own every album in the collage either on vinyl or my digital library. Probably have 25-30% of the albums shown on vinyl.

I have 89 of these from my collection of about 1100 albums.  Quite an interesting and well rounded collection Wink

Nice, I LOVE Zeuhl. Hope to see Magma live for the first time next year in London.

Wow nice! Is that 1100 prog albums or various genres?

I've got around 98 of those including pretty much all the RIO, Zeuhl, Italian & Canterbury. Nice collection, you'll fit in fine around here :)

I have 35 that I could identify, all on vinyl and at least half duplicated on cd.  I'm old school, like to have something I can peruse while listening.
