PORNOGRAPHY. --THE CURE.

awesome.
Over many years exploring the world of Dark-Gothic Progressive Rock/Metal has been an unbelievably great experience. Colour me Goth all over! I'm hooked.

Light Bringer's 'Genesis' album was a weird shift in the J-rock/power metal band's sound. It sounds like a complete meshing of Jpop and Dream Theater style progressive metal. Real happy melodies and virtuoso excess...rather odd, but I find it very entertaining (some of the band members are progressive rock fans, and I think the album title was more a homage to Genesis themselves than anything else). Too bad they shifted back to a more "normal" sound afterwards.

1)  Shadowfax - Watercourse Way 1976
2)  Split Enz - Mental Notes 1976
3)  Grateful Dead - AOXOMOXOA - 1969
4)  Klaatu - Hope - 1977
5)  Rolling Stones - Her Satanic Majesties Request - 1967
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
I don't really consider any of these 'prog rock'., maybe Split Enz first........but they are all good lp's.
Off the top of my head I can't think of any ....have to look at my collection.
Confused

I can see AOX, Hope, & Satanic as arguable but not Watercourse Way.  I consider "Linear Dance" an amazing prog track and the rest of the instrumentals a cross between mid 70's Mahavishnu, Crimson, & Gryphon.  I don't run into many people who know this album, so I'm curious, what would you classify it as? Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Well....,.I have had that on vinyl since it first came out and I always thought of it as fusion....ala Mahavishnu or Return To Forever. I can see why someone might put it in a prog rock area but not me. PA has it listed as crossover prog...I would place it in jazz/rock fusion.
ps: the title track Watercourse Way sounds like Oregon to me which is definitely jazz fusion.

Wow, I have though this before. It even contains an epic.
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.

I would offer up Quadrophenia by The Who and Houses of the Holy by Led Zeppelin, with an overwhelming urge to throw in Eldorado by Electric Light Orchestra.

'Venus And Mars' by Paul MacCartney's Wings was not strictly Prog by the rules, but it had many attributes which could clearly link it to Prog (maybe something like what one could say about Bowie's Diamond Dogs).
The fact that the title song had a reprise in the end being just one example.

I always thought that the Cure's PORNOGRAPHY had some prog related material on it.
Very little though. ;)

I second Smiley Smile, a revelation--  or B.W.'s rerecorded Smile also brilliant.

I'd add Ozzy's Diary of a Madman

I always thought that A Perfect Circle's "The Thirteenth Step" was proggy.  Anyone else?
