I love Styx. Dream Weaver, however, annoys me to no end
I probably haven't given GW a fair shake
Can you recommend something more progressive by him?

Good poll btw
Very similar these three
I voted Styx cuz they were "pop-prog" from the start
Asia, on the other hand, were classic prog giants selling out
At least that's my take on it
