Edit:
Not quite right, as I'm fond of as many Psych/Space albums as Folk.

If to be precise, I can't be quite sure about Symph either, as I've never made a separate list for my Symph albums.

I think Gone to Earth was possibly the last decent album they made, XII is passable.. after that, it really became soft easy listening pop-rock...

I'd Love to get hold of that album but I've searched in every record store in Nottingham for it without success so I think it must have Gone to Earth. John Lees' one and only solo album from 1977 is also A Major Fancy of mine too. Smile

And I've totally forgotten the Eclectic Prog albums that I'm fond of, which are more than Folk and Psych/Space, 
so there's surely some difference concerning which sub-genres are my fave comparing to yours, Paul.

Admittedly, I only have 19 Eclectic Prog albums out of 3200 CD's in total, which works out at precisely 0.59%, so I just need to buy one more King Crimson album to reach 0.6% of the total for Eclectic Prog.. Tongue

But if we just talk about the number, I have 24 "Eclectic" albums, so in that way, the difference is not such big. Smile

This is something that is probably only of interest to me personally, but I noticed exactly 2% of my total albums (64 out of 3200) are Symphonic Prog, so I have a lot of catching up to do in exploring the vast progosphere. Embarrassed

By the way, Marillion's Fugazi is the first Neo Prog album I ever bought and I only purchased it earlier this year, so I have a lot of catching up to do in the Neo Prog arena too. Double embarrassment! Embarrassed Embarrassed

I'm similar at 58 Symphonic out of 2,300, I have 9 Neo albums, my first was probably Sanguine Hun - Diving Bell

At least you have three times more Neo Prog albums than I do. Tongue

Nah, on second thoughts, I prefer Steve Hackett over King Crimson any day, seeing as they're both listed under Eclectic Prog. Smile

I'd Love to own more Neo Prog CD albums but they're very hard to find at charity shops and car boot sales. They're about as rare as finding Black Sabbath's albums at a Christian charity shop - not that I've looked for them there though.  Tongue

^^ I agree with you Paul, a lot of 90's Neo (other than Marillion) is either out of print and goes for silly money, or in some cases can be bought new for 11- 14, but very rarely comes up 2nd hand... 

Every so often I do come across a bargain which I already own and have thought about letting PA'ers know its whereabouts.... do you think there is any merit in having a Bargains thread, where links can be provided??

I think that's a reflection of just how good Neo Prog is generally, because serious prog collectors would never give their precious prog albums away to a charity shop, unlike me, who once gave away Pink Floyd's Animals to a charity shop, but then it was an animals charity. Tongue

Once Again is one of my all-time favourite prog albums, or albums full stop. Never really got into any other BJH though.
