From the PA Top 50:
Red - King Crimson (heard some other albums and never liked them)
Harmonium - Si On Avait ..
PFM - Storia Di Un Minuto
Gentle Giant - In a glass house (have a Best of GG Album, did not really inspire me to get more of them)
Bacamarte - Depois Do fim
Magma -K.A. (once had a Live Album which I quickly sold on ebay again)
Steven Wilson - The raven ... (Listen to two tracks on youtube, but unfortunately I am allergic to Wilsons singing and most of his depressive musical outputs)
Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom
I'm not one to believe in magic
But I sometimes have a second sight

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.

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.

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.

It didn't do that with me.
Still, it's a enjoyable  album.

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. :)
LIVE AND LET LIVE

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.

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.
