What do you think the best prog album titles are, independent of the actual music on the album? Titles that make you think or move you in themselves or that just sound awesome.


Some of my favorites:

The Light That Dwells In Rotten Wood (Falls of Rauros)
The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place (Explosions In the Sky)
Lateralus (Tool)
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven (GY!BE)
Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (The Beatles)
Feel Euphoria (Spock's Beard)
Larks' Tongues in Aspic (King Crimson)

Yes - Tales from Topographic Oceans
Porcupine Tree - The Sky Moves Sideways
Van Der Graaf Generator - The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other
King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic
King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black
Genesis - Wind and Wuthering
Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos

You might expect more to come.

* About the tritone: "so named because it spans three whole steps or tones, ... is classed among the most dissonant of the thirteen fundamental intervals in music. (If you turn in your college harmony assignment and have idiotically included a tritone in the final chord, you'll get it back marked in red.) Because of its searingly harsh, problematic sound, the tritone was called the diabolus in musica ('the devil in music') by medieval theorists, and some forbade its use entirely. The King Crimson metaphor -- it goes deeper than one might think." (p. 78 [from Eric Tamm's book Robert Fripp: From King Crimson to Guitar Craft. London: Faber and Faber, 1990]) All of the information is from a book called Avant Rock by Bill Martin. No, I'm not advertising it.

I recall seeing an LP at a used record store by, what I gather to be, a Punk band called NO - the title of the album was 'Glory For The sh*t-For-Brains' ......?

I thought Selling England By The Pound was an excellent title (definitely Genesis' best).

Others (as far as prog goes):
Harmonium - If There Was A Fifth Season (translated)
Sigur Ros - A Good Beginning (Agaetis Byrjun)
Steve Hackett - Voyage Of The Acolyte
Marillion - Script For A Jester's Tear
Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans
Dream Theater - Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory
Porcupine Tree - The Sky Moves Sideways
The Moody Blues - In Search Of The Lost Chord
Hawkwind - Warrior On The Edge Of Time
Atomic Rooster - Death Walks Behind You
Van Der Graaf Generator - The Least We Can Do Is Wave At Each Other

I also liked the idea of an untitled album (as Led Zeppelin famously did amongst others like Peter Gabriel). LOL

Well from the Prog corner of the globe, I always loved Lark's Tongues In Aspic & Brain Salad Surgery as just great names for albums.
 
But from the RocknRoll world it's Joe Walsh's The Smoker You Get The Player You Drink album...you just know that came from someone really stoned at a studio session. Cool

Because of the historical connotations of the title combined with the album cover... Subtle aye?
