Sorry for not introduce songs after 1980, itīs not Prog at all. Or am I mistaken?

Salisbury, similar like April from Deep Purple. Unique, symphonic, fantastic!

July Morning's intro is a gem.

Shadows of Grief, period.

Salisbury is too much inspired by Deep Purple's Concerto. July Morning (though I like it even better than SoG) is too much inspired by Child in Time and Starship Trooper to be called progressive.

Shadows of Grief may not be UH's best song ever, but it combines everything that's typical for the band in the most extreme way. Just take a listen at the very end - that offensive ah ah going from one speaker to the other, immediately followed by a seemingly misplaced major chord. And still it works.

UH were the absolute masters of bad taste (that's exactly why I enjoy them) and SoG best shows why.

Without a shadow of doubt, I will pick "Salisbury" It's 16-Minutes and has an Orchestra, That sounds pretty Prog to me.

The poll is predictable as hell, it's 'Salisbury'.
This night wounds time.
