I've sampled a little here and there, but for my tastes the cheese content is too overpowering. 

There's nothing cheesy about Pain of Salvation, if you like a little bit of metal, try their early stuff, maybe up until their 2004 album Be. 

Ayreon is often cheesy, so I agree... :)

I haven't listen to a Peter Hammill album in its entirety, but with his big discography, I don't even know where to start.

I dont know the album, it may be DP's best, I just naturaly doubt that, so if it is not, may be some "expert" should drop a StarStarStar, to get things back on track.

I am a major Neo-Prog fan so I am surprised myself that I have not heard T's new album Psychoanorexia. Mostly because I'm a little skeptical to listen to a one man band solo artist.

I've yet to hear "Dark Side Of The Moon" and "Hot Rats".

I still have to finish Cardiacs' "Sing To God", haven't heard part 2 yet.

Also, I haven't heard Passport's "Infinity Machine", which isn't highly regarded, but I still really want to listen to it.

Highest place album I have yet to hear is Godbluff. I'm still struggling with Pawn Hearts so it's put me off getting Godbluff for the moment. I know I should just go for it anyway as its not that expensive on Amazon.

For what it's worth, then Godbluff is a far easier listen than PHWink A lot more groovy too.
Both Banco and Harmonium are beautiful bands in each their own way. If you're into symphonic music, but think you've heard just about every angle from the style, then you should go for Harmonium's magnum opus imo. Very unique album with loads of acoustic guitars, angelic vocals and that ever so floating mellotron.

I've ordered Harmonium - Si on Avait Besoin D'une Cinqu and VDGG - Godlbluff
just needed that pushBig smile

Banco - Darwin! its good but I need more listens to know how much. My gut feeling is that they won't be kncoking PFM off their perch in my mind anytime soon
VDGG - Godbluff , I like this much more than Pawn Hearts. Very enjoyable.
Harmonium - this could be an acquired taste thing but I will certainly persevere.


Hey Richard. How did you like GoldBLuff? Did you get it in the mail yet?
I gave it a listen for the first time, a couple of days ago. I must say that it is an album worth many listens, but it is an eclectic style prog that I like....don't love though. Also, ARROW really is an emotional masterpiece. I did enjoy that one right away. Overall, I can see why People here on PA adore HAMMILL's diverse voice, but I feel it's an acquired taste.
HAMMILL needs to grow on you. Nothing more. :)

The others are all top dollar in my book(as is Lateralus), and you should be looking forward to them. That Caravan album fx is a classic for a reason. I can't believe you haven't heard it yet.

Into Canterbury bands like Hatfield, Khan, Soft Machine, National Health...guess I just never got around to Caravan Big smile  
If you're into all those Canterbury bands, then you're going to flip out when you hear Caravan. They're the bee's knees!

Great call.  "In the Land of Grey and Pink" is fantastic Thumbs Up

Mhm, Caravan is soo good. Quite sappy, but I mean that in the most positive connotation. If anything that benefits their sound, at least that's what attracts them to their fans.

First Utterance by Comus, never even touched it. I've heard it's a really good album, just never had the motivation to listen to it.

Kayo Dot--Choirs of the eye. This is in large part cause i didnt love Toby driver's work on maudlin of the well.
EROS-- DüNs. I cannot get a hold of this album. Maybe Doug Larson has it?

That's all I can think of right now...sure there is more. :)

I can recommend some treasures in this list...
well, let's see masterpieces first
Hawkwind Warriors at the edge of time - amazing!!!!!!! try also In Search of space and of course Space Ritual
ELOY = brilliant - try Colours, Silent cries and mighty echoes, Inside, Ocean, dawn, Powr and the Passion, debut and Floating.
Eros - Dun - its incredible but very complexxxxx
Now the others
Gentle Giant - Octopus is a let down for me - I rather Three Friends, debut, Power and Glory or Acquiring the taste
Gong- the three classics are Flying Teapot, Angels Egg, You
Kayo Dot - a band i have little interest in. But Choirs of the eye is about their best. Damn weird though.
hope tht helps Approve


Absolutely this helps. I value your opinion very much. You are one of my trusted here on PA.

Now as you can see I've got quite a bit of work to do.
I've probably put exploring these bands and albums off because I have really been addicted and enjoying a much heavier sound to my prog universe in last 2 years. I think it's time to thoroughly explore some new territories. Also, when I explore a certain genre of Prog Rock I go at it full tilt. I think it might be an OCD thing.

Well...I checked the 100 list on the home page and I haven't heard some of the Dream Theater lp's, Pain of Salvation nor  the Opeth one listed, nor Riverside.....but I have sampled single tracks on you tube in the past.

Just to recap the last few pages - which of the current top 100 rated albums have not been heard by somebody, and which have (apparently) been heard by all of us?

Well, I just worked away one omission: I listened to Hemispheres from Rush.
Quite a good album on first hearing. I should have listened to it before.

Ok heres a list to hear right now:


Foxtrot - try Suppers Ready - you will know why when you hear it.
Lamb Lies Down - Give it a go
Animals - a tough pne but Dogs is excellent
Godbluff - brilliant - go for Arrow
Italian Prog is awesome - try PFM, and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso's debuts
Aqualung - hmmmm, its pretty good esp Locomotove breath, but hes done better with Thick as a brick, and Minstrel in the gallery


also try out some AtOmic Rooster - such as Death Walks BEHIND yOU
Prog on!

Dont lose any sleep over any of those -they are greta but not the ultimate prog listening by a long shot. I was disappointed with those that are hailed as masterpieces. The Miles albums are certainly among his best though, and I liked Hammills solo effort.
