I trust Mojo wont mind if I post this intriguing list from the pages of their Prog  magazine
here we go
  • SEX, DRUGS & WIZARDS: From Wish You Were Here to OK Computer - 40 Cosmic Rock Albums To Blow Your Mind
  •  
     
    CAN SOMEONE POST THE COVERS TO THESE?
    anyway - I can guarantee if you use the list as a starting point you get a pretty good feel for the genre altho some albums are criminally overlooked (mostly English speaking here which is a dang shame as some of the best prog is found elsewhere such as Italy) Anyway take it as you will.
     
    ALL OF THESE ALBUMS HAD A SECOND CHOICE AS WELL MENTIONED, BUT THESE ARE THE MAIN ONES.

    40 666 - APHRODITES CHILD
    39 ONCE AGAIN - BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST
    38 PHAEDRA - TANGERINE DREAM
    37 IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CHORD - MOODY BLUES
    36 DANCE OF THE LEMMINGS - AMON DUUL II
    35 FLYING TEAPOT - GONG
    34 HATFIELD AND THE NORTH - HATFIELD AND THE NORTH
    33 ALL TOGETHER NOW - ARGENT
    32 MOONTAN - GOLDEN EARRING
    31 ROXY MUSIC - ROXY MUSIC
    30 MUSIC IN A DOLL'S HOUSE - FAMILY
    29 FIVE BRIDGES - THE NICE
    28 L - STEVE HILLAGE
    27 AGAETIS BYRJUN - SIGUR ROS
    26 PAMPERED MENIAL - PAVLOV'S DOG
    25 A NIGHT AT THE OPERA - QUEEN
    24 MOVING PICTURES - FOCUS
    23 MOONMADNESS - CAMEL
    22 LARK'S TONGUES IN ASPIC - KING CRIMSON
    21 LATERALUS - TOOL
    20 THIRD - SOFT MACHINE
    19 IN THE LAND OF GREY AND PINK - CARAVAN
    18 FRANCES THE MUTE - THE MARS VOLTA
    17 MISPLACED CHILDHOOD - MARILLION
    16 OCTOPUS - GENTLE GIANT
    15 THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS WAVE TO EACH OTHER - VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR 
    14 THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY - GENESIS
    13 HOT RATS - FRANK ZAPPA
    12 THE YES ALBUM - YES
    11 WISH YOU WERE HERE - PINK FLOYD
    10 OK COMPUTER - RADIOHEAD
    9 TUBULAR BELLS - MIKE OLDFIELD
    8 SPACE RITUAL - HAWKWIND
    7 AQUALUNG - JETHRO TULL
    6 A FAREWELL TO KINGS - RUSH
    5 BRAIN SALAD SURGERY - ELP
    4 IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING - KING CRIMSON 
    3 CLOSE TO THE EDGE - YES
    2 FOXTROT - GENESIS
    1 DARK SIDE OF THE MOON - PINK FLOYD

    of all the albums the ones I wished i didnt purchase are octopus, Roxy Music, Third, and Phaedra. I actually went on to the CD prog store specialist and gave him the list and he pulled them off the shelf one after another! I had to stop him eventually as i was up to $800. Anyway eventually i bought them off him and became a VIP customer - those were the days before downloading was in vogue.

    The only thing I can suggest is ebay also although occasionally second hand shops may have it.

    I remember seeing this a while back and I loved the top 40 list! Got me into Sigur Ros (particularly Agaetis Byrjun), The Moody Blues (In Search Of The Lost Chord) and various other's such as Hawkwind, Aphrodite's Child, and A Night At The Opera by Queen.

    Great list - I have 26 of them. Of the rest, several are not my cup of tea and the rest are on my wish list. Prog Archives woke me up from my Prog slumber and got me back into the genre. I already had 19 of the aforementioned 26.

    Currently 26 out of those 40, but at least 20 of those I had heard and "been there" when they came out (like Moody Blues, even though I don't have the albums), and was well aware of the feelings and ideals that they represented and made you think, and you and some of your friends talked about it in school.
     
    Trust me, that in 1968, many of us in school discussed and asked what Jimi and Jim and Janis meant! And sometimes we wondered if we were missing something of what it was all about. So when you hear the anger in one song by Creedence later, you know that it was real ... not an idea!
     
    I am not sure that the magazine can make this reality that helped create the music important, or that it bothered, which is one of the reasons why I tend to not enjoy many of these. It makes the music come off empty and meaningless for me.
     
    But, all in all, it is good to see it show new fans and folks something about that time and place! Just remember that ... time and place! Not just music!
    ... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

    I heard all 40 on that list but do not agree they should be on it when other prog artists were absent. Its still a pretty good list though for the newbie.

    Someone asked a question about that issue of Prog mag on a another thread so a few of us directed him to this old thread.
    I'll have to dig out that issue from my closet ....prolly full of dust and spiders by now.

    The only part that hurts is that 45 years later, lines like "c'mon baby light my firrrrrre!", still don't mean much, other than a frivolous act or a quickie! Or hearing Jimi tear up an anthem in front of garbage, is still ignored and not understood because everyone wants to hear the blues God, or Janis screaming about a piece of her heart, means nothing to anyone anymore!

    Maybe I take these things too seriously, but I believe in the "heart", and its honesty and there is a serious difference in color between what some of these people did with their hearts and a bunch of crappy pop songs out there, and this was the generation that helped define what became known as "progressive", which at the time, would have been considered music that was more intelligent and not just a pop song.

    The magazine, for my tastes, looks at it all as just a popular form of music for the masses! Albeit I have no objection to seeing another generation learn about it, and appreciate the music. That part is awesome, with one exception! They will just remember one song and it's just a part of their list of songs, and that is not what "progressive" was all about at all!

    We have to come to "grips" with that sooner or later. We either believe in the form, or it's just another pot and pan out there for your kitchen!

    For newcomers to the progiverse, the magazine serves as a very good signpost.  Readers can see a name they like the sound of, and check them out on youtube/spotify/wherever and then explore further if they like what they hear.  But it starts with magazines such as this one.  Just as in the early 70s it started with "Top Of The Pops" for many people.
