This song occured me too. But I don´t mean it´s Prog in strict criteria. It´s excellent of course nevertheless the rhythm is quite level-toned.

In The Light would be my 2nd choice.

I apologize to all Achilles Last Stand´s fans. If I thinking back about it, this one is in fact Prog Metal piece, 4 years before first Iron Maiden and 13 years before first Dream Theater...
 
But I cannot add this song additionally, however.

No Quarter for me and Achilles second, with Stairway third.

 

Very good list, apart from forgetting Achilles

 

However, Since I've been, Tea For One and Nobody's Fault are nothing prog, IMHO

 

the first two are killer blues, and the third is pure Rock'n Roll

"Stairway to Heaven", but I should have checked some of the songs that I still haven't listened.

But, anyway, I could hardly vote for "Kashmir", because of its repetitive and obsesional structures, or "Dazed and Confused" which I remember as being rather usual in its writing (verse-verse-chorus-verse or do I have a wrong memory of this song?)

Depending on which live version you watch, No Quarter or Kashmir could win the poll. However, as it is on record, they're not really very "progressive" at all.
 
I voted for Achilles as well, but it was hard not to vote for The Rain Song, which is such a spectacular work, one of Zeppelin's very very best.

Hi,
 
Achilles Last Stand ... or is it Ulysses ... the really big song on that album after PG ... there, my friends is a real "metal" piece of music for you ... !!! Listen to it again!
 
Too many of those choices for songs are quite basic blues ... more or less ... used to be called "power blues".
 
Whole Lotta Love is a lot more progressive than the majority of that whole list!

No Quarter is the winner...hmm, most depressive and dark song from the list. I appologize once more for my omitting of Achilles. I never haven´t presumed this song is related to Prog, the same is about victory of No Quarter. Now I´m smarter, I usually make a first round with your nominations, then will coming the poll itself.

I don't give a s$%t if "The Rain Song" is "just a soft ballad". So is a number of things Steve Hackett wrote. So is "More Fool Me".

To answer the question of the poll: ... I don't know, but certainly NOT "Achilles Last Stand". It's got only about three-four musical ideas (and that goes on and on and on for ten minutes!) that sound very similar to each other in character. No diversity in texture and character almost at all. So not progressive.

Now, some of the choices on this poll are equally progressive and some are so progressive that it's just so hard for me to care. To sum up, I choose not to choose. It's pointless for me to pick just one.

When the Levee Breaks. Weird time signatures, flanges, backward echoes, compressed drums, changing motifs every 12 bars. If there is such a thing as "progressive blues", then this song is a definitive composition of the genre.

Carrouselambra is the most obviously prog-intended
The Crunge has amazing polyrythmics !

Built on those silly poor mellow riffs, No Quarter has become this incredible out-of-there-ish studio track, my fav LZ, long time ! Played live it sounds like another bluesy song I probably wouldn't have noticed as a newcomer.

Achilles Last Stand just varies a little more than Kashmir and that riff is kind of annoying in my opinion too repetitive. Is it in 3/4 or 6/4???. Personally Page's playing on that song is my favorite playing of his I don't like Led Zeppelin that much

No it doesn't it and they don't sound similar to each other has about seven or so for a 10 minute song, I think you to give it another listen  how about that bassline does Kashmir have anything like that?Achilles Last Stand is not an easy song to play on guitar at least for me(cuz I kinda suck but I'm getting there)

Why do you think people are voting for it then??ConfusedConfusedI don't know what song you are listening to??

There's riff 1 1a,2a 2b,3, 4a 4b, 4c 4d, 5a 5b 5c 5d, 6a, 7a 7b 7c 7d you get my point

Who's laughing now? It's on page four.

How hard is it for a person to look through a five-page thread and find the thing he is looking for?

I'm not an expert on these things but I don't think Kashmir is in 3/4 or 6/4. It's certainly not in waltz time despite the odd timing of the riff.

6/4 over 4/4 in the verses.

The most appealing to prog rock standards, for me, is Carouselambra.

Looks like I got some of the theory to revisit.

Agreed ... and by definition definitly the one piece that is "progressive" ... and he can explain it to you really well in "It's Gonna Get Loud" ...
 
I like LZ a lot, but I really think that stretching this to progressive is a bit scary ... although by the time we put the distinctions side by side, LZ will come off more progressive than half the bands we DID call progressive.
 
I have fond memories of the age of bootlegs and some of these by this band! Their concerts were (generally) excellent.

Achilles is the one...
No Quarter is next.
Friends of the Folk/Prog song off of III is worth a shout.

Then I guess I am alone on this one about Achilles.

I agree, by any standard actually, it is their most progressive number in the studio -

I always thought Song Remains the Same to be proggy......but No Quarter, Kashmir and Achilles also fit the bill for me.

The Rain Song, easy.

I went with this. The live version on The Song Remains the Same is just sublime. It's one of those songs that I just *had* to learn how to play, note-for-note.

if any kind of long song is "progressive" , so "November Rain" is a prog-epic lol:


Did Guns-n-Roses sing about elves and pixies? About magic runes writ in gold? About Mordor and the Hammer of the gods? Hmph. I thought not. Wink

Four Stix, my favorite under appreciated LZ track. I love how the 5/4 and 3/4 sections fit together. I don't know if it's their most prog but I love it.

Agreed. Other tracks on IV get all the notice (Stairway, Levee, Rock & Roll, Black Dog, Evermore, Going to California), but it's Four Sticks and Misty Mountain Hop that are the real backbone of this album. Such an amazing album, one that's hard to appreciate because of its ubiquity (every song got massive air play on AOR stations in the US in the 70s/80s).

Yep...that's a great song and one of my favorites by them.
 
Cool

Come to think of it, 4 Sticks is probably the only song from IV I haven't heard on the radio.

Spoken by someone who's probably only heard 'Black Dog'. 

No Quarter, Achilles, The Song Remains the Same, the Rain Song, Carouselambra, etc, not prog? Eh?

Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...
