What do you think the best prog album titles are, independent of the actual music on the album? Titles that make you think or move you in themselves or that just sound awesome.


Some of my favorites:

The Light That Dwells In Rotten Wood (Falls of Rauros)
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place (Explosions In the Sky)
Lateralus (Tool)
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven (GY!BE)
Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (The Beatles)
Feel Euphoria (Spock's Beard)
Larks' Tongues in Aspic (King Crimson)

I tried disregarding music as well as cover art, which was very tough to do.

Yes - Tales from Topographic Oceans
Porcupine Tree - The Sky Moves Sideways
Van Der Graaf Generator - The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other
King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic
King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black
Genesis - Wind and Wuthering
Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos

I like the titles


Dream Theater-Black Clouds &  Silver Linings
Genesis-Wind & Wuthering
Gentle Giant-The Power & The Glory LOL


It is has a good ring to it and the album cover is brilliant in my opinion

"Insurgentes", but you have to pronounce it correctly.
