This, especially. The first time I heard it, I had a huge smile on my face. I kinda laughed a little bit too. It's such an enjoyable album!
I seem to remember a big silly grin on my face when I first heard that album, great pick.

Bridges Across Forever - Transatlantic
And most recently Big Big Train's latest two releases.

I consider drone metal to be progressive...

Oh, some great mentions in here!

I shortlisted In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel), The Yes Album (Yes), Pictures at an Exhibition (ELP), and honorary mention for Beardfish's And The Stone Said, If I Could Speak, because I listen to it every single morning to pep myself up.

But my special album is Den of Iniquity by the Norman Haines Band.  It just makes me want to tip my hat to everyone I see.
Stop me from dreaming?
Okay :-(

Several I think ...

Jethro Tull's Minstrel in the Gallery. Cold Wind to Valhalla, One White Duck, Baker Street Muse always put a big broad smile on my face. Especially Valhalla.

Ayreon's Into The Electric Castle, for its glorious cheesiness, + Amazing Flight has got to be one of the best ayreon tracks ever. The rest of disc 1 is pretty uplifting as well (musically)

Biffy Clyro's Only Revolutions is not exactly prog but it is definitely one of my go-to choicesfor feel good music with a twist to it. Can be said of most of the latest album Opposites as well

Dream Theater's Images and Words. Take the Time and Metropolis pt.1 are instant smilers (... Is that a word) ?

Haken - Visions
The melodies are very uplifting, even though it is a dream about death.  It lacks the melancholy that much of the prog world seems to like.

At the moment Big Big Train - English Electric parts 1 and 2.

A nod to the golden era of progressive music and my youth.
 
And to a pastoral, simpler way of life in England ( albeit tough for many )

Hey, nothin' wrong with liking The Monkees. Approve


I also like The Monkees.  My favorite is Headquarters.  Cool
I listened to More Of The Monkees and Headquarters the other day, but I couldn't remember what made me do so.  Must have been this thread!  Smile  Fun stuff.  We had the first two albums when I was a kid (mid to late 70s) and we'd all dance around like crazy to them!
Smile I am not as embarrassed anymore seeing that I have company here.  I got suckered into an Amazon MP3 sale a couple of days before I saw this thread and got the Monkees...Best of for $1..99 (25 songs).  Could not pass it up since I danced around like an idiot as a kid  back then also! LOL

I believe it. I love that album! Topographic Oceans, Relayer, and Close to the Edge are my favorite Yes albums.

I have several Beach Boys albums and they are always quite uplifting and cozy (Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe and a S/T one from 1985....).
