Good call.  My 2nd Marillion album was "The Thieving Magpie" and the Misplaced Childhood Suite is my favorite piece.  I've never even heard the studio version Wink

Never really got into the prog metal scene.  I didn't like Operation Mindcrime and tried albums from Crimson Glory & Fates Warning but didn't like them either...that turned me off from further exploration there.  Saw a prog metal TV documentary and they mentioned Mastadon has some Crimso-ish moments so I recently got Leviathan and am still working with it...

I would open a prog metal recommendation thread. You might find some good prog metal. I promise there is hope after disliking DT. 

Yeah, as varied as it is, especially nowadays, there's plenty of room for exploration. I personally like DT, Images and Words especially as it draws on so many classic-era prog sensibilities, but even if you don't like that, there's still a lot of good music out there. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting out of the comfort zone and opening yourself up to new possibilities Smile

The best in the prog metal blanket genre to me at the moment is Riverside. They're a good starting point I feel as their albums incorporate a wide variety of influences and sounds, creating a widely varied and interesting catalog.

Ya, almost nobody knows that before Split Enz became MTV favorites in the 80's they released a prog concept album in '76.  Definitely a hidden treasure.

Pretty non-commercial, far-out stuff too! A hidden treasure it certainly is. Big smile

Mirage. So many memories of eating curry.
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

Moonmadness, Mirage, Moving Waves, Meddle and Moving Pictures, in that order. All brilliant albums.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.
