Here's another alphabetical prog album list, this time albums beginning with the letter "M".  The first conflict that arises is between the 2 classic 1970's Camel albums.  Then some big name prog classics step up with "Minstrel" taking on "Moving Pictures" & "Meddle".  Finally you have the Beatles album which includes the great songs "Strawberry Fields" and "I am the Walrus".

Remember this is a multiple poll so vote for all your favorites!

Have fun...

This concludes the first round of my "Prog Albums" poll.  Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to vote and post on the 16 separate groups of albums.  Keep an eye open for round two of the series appearing early next week LOL

Mirage. So many memories of eating curry.

I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From a Memory.

Any particular reason Dream Theater has been conspicuously absent from these polls? Wink

Never really got into the prog metal scene.  I didn't like Operation Mindcrime and tried albums from Crimson Glory & Fates Warning but didn't like them either...that turned me off from further exploration there.  Saw a prog metal TV documentary and they mentioned Mastadon has some Crimso-ish moments so I recently got Leviathan and am still working with it...

I would open a prog metal recommendation thread. You might find some good prog metal. I promise there is hope after disliking DT.

Ya, almost nobody knows that before Split Enz became MTV favorites in the 80's they released a prog concept album in '76.  Definitely a hidden treasure.

Pretty non-commercial, far-out stuff too! A hidden treasure it certainly is. Big smile

Yeah, as varied as it is, especially nowadays, there's plenty of room for exploration. I personally like DT, Images and Words especially as it draws on so many classic-era prog sensibilities, but even if you don't like that, there's still a lot of good music out there. Sometimes it's just a matter of getting out of the comfort zone and opening yourself up to new possibilities Smile

The best in the prog metal blanket genre to me at the moment is Riverside. They're a good starting point I feel as their albums incorporate a wide variety of influences and sounds, creating a widely varied and interesting catalog.

Good call.  My 2nd Marillion album was "The Thieving Magpie" and the Misplaced Childhood Suite is my favorite piece.  I've never even heard the studio version Wink
