Interesting. IQ's "Nomzamo" sounds like a borderline case to me

Believe it or not, that's the correct spelling
from the Latin spelling of the phrase procul harum. "Away from these things."

I'd say everything in the Crossover Prog section, including the Alan Parsons Project, the Moody Blues, Procol Harum & Supertramp, amongst many others. Smile

crossover prog is still a prog subgenre.

I was intending the "what would you say" form of the question to require a personal feel about music you hesitate to call prog.
I, for example, feel that ambiguity with "Aladdin Sane". Not that I can't read the label on it, just feel it.

Regardng the OP's point above.......I don't consider many of the bands listed here on proto prog and prog  related as prog.....but I suppose that's why those categories are color coded differently on the banner..?

Yes it is, but at the risk of being called Captain Obvious again, Crossover Prog is quite literally a crossover between Prog-Rock and Pop/Rock, just like those four bands I mentioned in the Crossover Prog section of ProgArchives. Smile
