I AM IN AGREEMENT WITH YOU!

IT IS STRANGE!

I think that at least the first albums of Santana, especially the marvellous "Abraxas" and "Caravanserai", qualify as prog and should be featured here. However, the addition of bands which only have a few prog records to their credit presents quite a few problems, IMHO. Just yesterday, while looking for an album in the Album index, I happened to come across "Queen with George Michael and Lisa Stansfield". Well, I am very open-minded, but to say that came as a shock would be an understatement...

I've made this point before, but ....

This site has hundreds of reviews of Dream Theater's SFAMM II, most hailing it as the greatest artistic achievement of the 20th century, and people feel that the presence of one album featuring George Michael as a guest artist undermines the site's credibility? Get real!

As for Santana, I'd definitely be in favour of their inclusion, but the majority consensus seems to be against it.

I agree, but all of that post creative peak material on here bares the mark of low rankings; to separate it from the cream.

Yeah, Abraxas and Caravanserai are well worthy of inclusion!! The only two Santana's studio albums I own.

I don't know if I got your point right, but I DON'T think that Queen album undermines the site's credibility. After all, I'm a collaborator as well, and that would be somewhat inconsistent. That said, I agree with you about the hundreds of rave reviews of DT's record. I haven't even heard SFAMM II, but the DT records I own (with the only exception of Images and Words) bore me to tears, and I can't to this day understand what's so exciting about them - apart from their technical proficiency.

Back to Santana, I understand his later production is rather poppy and commercial and has no real relation to the great records he made in the '70s - but this is true of many artists featured here. Genesis, anyone?

Santana WILL be added for sure, but one thing at a time

His huge discography is scary when you know that the whole thing must be entered
