I'm too emo to listen to any music that lifts me up.
jk, Moonmadness does the job (Mirage would too, but Lady Fantasy evokes sadness). Hot Rats is always a joyous experience, too.

Camel is very popular here. Rightly so!

But for me as a knee-jerk reaction I've gone for 'Apostrophe' by Frank Zappa because I widdled on the Bingo Cards in lieu of the latrine.

It's one of the most highly regarded indie folk albums around.  Either you love it or hate it.  Personally, I love it.

This is kind of a weird one, since it is supposed to be a rather depressing album about alcohol abuse, but I love drinking some beer and listening to/singing along with Clutching at Straws by Marillion.  That would have to be my feel-good album.  Confused
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Not prog at all. But I am a huge fan of the Japanese group Perfume. Their albums Game and JPN are the ultimate feel good, happy, upbeat stuff ever.

Outside of prog anything by the Pogues tends to do the trick. But inside of prog I have 2 main feel good albums, and they're very different. One is Moon Safari's Lover's End, and the other is Sing to God by the Cardiacs.

Cheers - got an LP copy in my 'watch-list' on E-Bay as we speak - be fixing that up today.  'Indie' isn't my scene, but this one sounds somewhat eclectic and the instrumentation is diverse and interesting.  I hope it works out well.  Absolutely striking art-work, this Magnum fellow must be truly gifted.......
