This is a two part poll, so please make sure to follow instructions and avoid having spats about which genre or artist is the best of everything since it is all about your opinion.
 
1.  Choose your current favorite genre from the poll options.
2.  In your message, please list at least 2 bands that you have recently discovered that are from your favorite genre that help support your choice.  It doesn't matter if they are a new band or old band, as long as it is someone that you have recently discovered for yourself.  Hopefully this will help avoid having all of the Prog Metal lovers pick Dream Theater or all of the Eclectic Prog lovers from listing King Crimson (unless you truly have recently discovered them).
3. Optional:  If you want to explain why a certain genre or band is listed, go right ahead.  Let's just avoid getting into arguments if possible.  Remember, this is your opinion and everyone has a right to their own opinion.
 
I will go ahead and list RIO/Avant as being my current favorite genre and will mention the recently discovered artists for me in that genre are "French TV" and "Lost Crowns".

Symphonic. Always symphonic.

Symphonic. Finally heard Anglagard. Fantastic.
Other favorite genres include Prog Folk, J/R Fusion, Proto-Prog, and Prog Related. Just acquired John Martyn's One World, a truly special album from a Prog Folk artist.
 
To me, Symphonic is the heart of Prog. Adventurous, but still rooted in melody. Fine musicianship required to succeed. Yes, Spock's Beard, Renaissance, ANT, Moon Safari, Kansas, Genesis, Flower Kings, The Enid, Cast, Anglagard (yes, I went down the list) are all regular listens of mine if not absolute favorites.

RPI by a smidgen.   Symphonic, Crossover, and Jazz nipping at RPI's heels.

RIO/Avant

Tough to say which artists I've recently discovered...I guess I'll go with Piniol, Chromb!, Ni, and The World Heritage

Symphonic just over Eclectic, Xover, Heavy and Zeuhl. 

Artists: Oaksenham, Wobbler.

I mention these bands because I was not familiar with their work and they had high rankings in my last two AotY lists (Oaksenham topped my 2018 list, Wobbler ranked #3 in my 2017 list).

Symphonic includes Yes, Genesis(70's anyway), Camel, early King Crimson and the Flower Kings so symphonic for me.

I kind of hate to say it but in my opinion(I can't stress that enough ;)) RPI is not a real subgenre. Again MY OPINION. The reason why I feel that way is because it opens up a can of worms for every country to have their own subgenre and to me that's ridiculous. Yes, I understand it was influential but it was not(and is not) the only country with a vibrant prog scene. Ok, end of rant.

Interesting that that band Casiopea is not on this website. Tons of other fusion stuff to explore though.

There is always that fear of repeating a past poll, but like you said, new members are always joining, plus everyone is always exploring bands that are new to them, and there are always new bands to explore, so this poll isn't really static either.  Anyway, I wanted to get an idea of what people were listening to and discovering on their own, plus it also gives me ideas of other bands to explore for myself.  So, yeah, it's a little bit selfish too.

I really can't pick a favorite genre. I pretty much spend equal time with Symphonic Prog, Heavy Prog, Progressive Metal, and Jazz/Rock Fusion.

That favoritism is based on mostly longstanding favorite artists.  Because I keep up with those genres fairly well, I don't have any recent discoveries there.  

My favorite recent discovery comes under the Prog Folk heading; the s/t album from Agusa.  (Agusa is listed on this site as Psychedelic/Space prog, but the 2019 self titled release is much more Prog Folk).

My other recent fave discovery is Experimental/Post Metal, Soen

Another recent new love is Crossover Prog, Phideaux

For my favorite genres:
Under the Heavy Prog, my most recent discovery (about a year ago) is Haken.
Under the Symphonic Prog heading, although I've long been a Spock's Beard fan, it was much more recent that I found The Neal Morse Band.

I'm a big fan of a lot of Crossover bands, so we'll go with that. The bands I've started listening to most recently are ELO and Big Big Train.

For me it rotates between Prog Electronic, Psych/Space and RPI. I'm on a PE mood lately so it gets my vote, although I only discovered anything new from the artist evaluations. From these I particularly liked Michel Moulinie and Jean-Michel Desbouis, Zadri & Mo and Ose.

Canterbury, Eccletic, RIO/Avant and Zeuhl

Hard to narrow it down further than these 4.

In my opinion many if not most crossover bands are really art rock bands and that is not(again imo)true prog.

Neo-prog and Crossover for me. Symphonic is certainly up there, but I find myself returning to those two subgenres the most frequently. Lately I've been enjoying Gazpacho and Mystery quite a bit.


Posted By: BaldFriede

Most definitely Krautrock. But I can't really say that I recently discovered anything; I have an excellent knowledge of that genre.

I cast the first vote for Psychedelic/Space Rock, although I could equally have jumped on the Symphonic bandwagon. Why? Most of my reviews posted on PA fall into that genre.

A recent discovery of mine was OHEAD (a Dave Hendry project). If you like Ozric Tentacles, Tangerine Dream, or even Shpongle, check 'em out here:  https://www.ohead.co.uk/" rel="nofollow - https://www.ohead.co.uk/

Voted RIO, bands Aranis and A.P.A.T.T., although I don't constrain myself much by genre and several genres are represented in the recently discovered bands (and/or bands that fit nowhere and anywhere have been classified somewhat randomly).



Posted By: AFlowerKingCrimson
Date Posted: July 21 2019 at 17:16
I'm always curious if there is someone out there who is big into both neo prog and RIO(the two most diametrically opposed prog subgenres). :D My guess would be that most neo fans have very little if any RIO and most RIO fans have very little if any neo. That's just how it seems like it would be but I could be wrong.

Hi,

I can't vote on this ... 

1. I don't listen to "genres". 

2. There are times when something from the 16th century attracts me, and I might go after some of the better known composers, or I can put on something like the Third Ear Band, or some Gryphon, to get some notions, and ideas or thoughts about some of the feelings in that music, and how it comes out.

3. Symphonic is not a "genre". The history of "music", is almost EXCLUSIVELY about it all being "symphonic" going far back and then some. My main concern is that we are calling something "symphonic" simply because it has keyboards, and while it is a "string section" to be sure, there are times when a lot of music is "symphonic" but it is not considered that ... best example is CARAVAN AND THE NEW SINFONIA, and how well their music fits a classic symphony of folks, and how well versed and intelligent musicians ) more than likely musically well educated!!!!), in order to create what they did ... and it goes back to their second album (did I get it right? For Richard) ... and the like.

"Symphonic" has evolved, since in the 16th century, orchestras did not have 100 folks ... and now they have more than that more often than not. Thus, 19th century composers were, by far the most "symphonic" in composing things for a complete orchestra, that kind of ended, or at least changed, when Stravinsky came around, even though he also used a full orchestra.

4. Jazz is not properly considered or determined, and in fact, in this poll some variations on the "jazz" theme are the only options ... a more straight away "jazz" option would make better sense to me.

5. The 1950's and 1960's black jazz pioneers were quite "symphonic" even though their main appeal was within a jazz context. I think that this, along with its melodic content, was what brought many more folks to the music.

6. There were very tough musical elements that were trying to break out of the "symphonic/orchestral" concepts in music ... and some of them are mentioned above. In almost all cases, you will find that the folks playing it, are highly educated musically and they know what they are doing. In that respect they are very "classical", although we might consider the music ... something else.

It is, however, a very interesting poll ... but I'm not sure that a good/proper conclusion can be made out of it, that would help us learn more about each and everyone of those "genres'. Yes, I know they are there to represent a style at the time and place (baroque, romantic, modern, etc) but sadly, some of the descriptions for the listings are almost secondary to another group, at least in the way I see it.

I look at all music when I see something like this ... not just a few things I listen to because I'm tired of Pink Floyd and Albinoni, all of a sudden sounds so much better as done by Thijs Van Leer. 

And things like that have a way to rip apart these polls for me!

Symphonic as it includes ELP , Genesis and Yes.

The only other bands that I care about as much as those are Rush and IQ. I'm guessing that Rush are in 'Heavy' category not prog metal? If so then when you include Porcupine Tree and Haken then that is a sub genre that I also like a lot. As far as Neo goes , IQ are probably the only band in that sub genre that I really love. 

On the general point about classifications it seems to me that a lot of RPI falls into Symphonic anyway!

Weird ... I don't do dope at all ... ask my neighbor who takes it medically for his Parkinson's ... and I do not drink any alcohol at all. One can of Diet Coke a day and the rest all water. I think I last had a glass of some local hops over a year ago!

I just live way too much inside the music, the keyboard in my computer, and the things that I write. 

I do "record" a heck of a lot of my dreams, which for all of you would explain some of the appreciation and attention I have to internal details, and specially how they are used in creativity, within a painting, a song, or a book!

Now you know why there are no "genres" for me ... the source is internal for all of us, and it feels like saying that because one is black, that is a genre, because one is white, that is a genre ... and for me IT NEVER IS ... since it is ALL about us, as human beings ... and how much we care about our own inner visions!

It's hard to feel like I have been placed by PA on one of the drawers in Gala's breast ... and it was closed down ... in fact, it is weird and much more surreal than Dali himself!

I would be the biggest and best anarchist EVER, in charge of it ... but at my age, I would not want to manage it at all ... I would rather just enjoy being better than GONZO, at least when it comes to a lot of the music, and the arts, which to me ... is ... shall we say ... sacred?

The only change? The top ten would be down tomorrow and be replaced by the top ten bands ... no more sucking up to one album or two for any band! We will treat them as ARTISTS ... and that's that ... and it is what will make "progressive" important, rather than songs ... which no one remembers anymore ... 

I find it weird to see all this sucking up to commercial stuff ... and the lack of respect for "progressive" which started as a counter measure to the commercial appeal.

and that is why you would be perfect for the job...  this place when it was great.. was a controlled form of anarchy.  Of the Darwinistic sort..  rule by the strongest and fittest.  i remember one cat we had here years ago from Swedem.. some of the old timers might remember here. Teafax.  Man oh man was he smart as a whip, know his sh*t, but had zero time for fools and was prone to shoot down anyone that he felt was talking nonsense.  Actually a really nice guy once you got passed music.. we sort of connected over.. Swedish style Pizza of all things. Go figure..

anyhow.. yeah...  take my teasing of you as a very inside joke.  Endaring for you know I love you brother. I don't do drugs anymore.. well..   once in a blue moon (see the 67 album thread for the last time haha) but the funny thing is.. no one believes me.  In fact my office gets calls regularly from customers.. especially older farts saying...  well.. this is hard to say for Michael is a lovely guy, very nice, and very friendly and is doing good work.. but.. ummm.. I do have to ask.. have you done a drug test on him.. he is talking to himself as he works. laughing at whatever he is saying to himself, suddnely singing to music he must hear in his head .. though I must say. he really does have a lovely voice

my bosses standard reply..   oh yes..  we know what you are talking about and yes.. believe it or not..  he is regularly drug tested..  he is just ... umm.. sort of odd.

We.. the genre team leaders were the rock stars of the site back in the day. Especially for me as I had my hand in many and led multiple teams. And that made us popular. I've had offers booze, drugs, women... even friendship haha... tossed at me by desperate bands wanting to get their bands exposure through addition to teh site.  (yes the site has changed that much. It once was like that)  but you guys..  you toil away and keep the site going and going strong through its real value. That database.. so yeah..  you and Eugene always had a place in my plans for the site. While Pedro would rule over the forum, the discussion side, you two would lord over the database.

thanks buddy.. yeah... it is a big one.  It helps that Raff told me with a completely straight face that I don't look a day over 30.. which is great.. but still sucks because at 40... I was (completely serious here) still being carded for cigarettes.. so yeah advanced decrepitude is creeping in.

It is a big one for me as I am making some substantial life changes.. both in career and in how I have been abusing myself. The stress of work gave me an excuse.. but eliminating that gives me little excuse with the better half anymore hahahah

I voted Canterbury cuz I love the way the music entertains in a light, happy-go-lucky way though the musicianship and composition is always strong.

Two recent discoveries: 
AMOEBA SPLIT (both albums)
HOMUNCULUS RES (three albums, the debut being one of my favorite five albums of ALL-TIME)

Great Poll! Thumbs Up My vote goes to Psychedelic/Space Rock, as you can probably guess from my username. Tongue

Really hard to say. Probably a toss up between RIO and JRF over the last couple years. Neo is probably the only one that I dislike as a whole. I will probably go RIO.

Favorite fairly recent discoveries there: ni, Piniol, Tracteur, Emme Phyzeme


Although my favorite discovery so far this year is The Pneumatic Transit, which is listed as JRF, but isn't really representative of the sub.

I just discovered what R.I.O. means - Rock In Opposition. I thought it meant Brazilian Rock at first. Tongue

I'm surprised there's only three for fusion and two for prog metal.

A tie for me between Eclectic, Canterbury, and Symphonic.

Triple tie for me between Crossover, Symphonic & Prog Folk.  Wish there were a Chamber Prog category, also enjoy many of the Proto Prog artists and have been known to like "Psych/Space Rock,"  too.  But voted for Crossover, as I have a special interest in it.
