I've seen a few of these polls going around so I created this one. It's primarily based on PA bands and I tried to include as many sub-genres as possible.

It's not entirely personal as I only have 84 of these.

It's just for fun so don't take it too seriously.

I scored 63. Have not really heard a lot of the RPI bands, which is clearly an oversight in my case.

I created this one to focus more on the breadth of sub genres on PA.

I only got 21... Confused

But then again I'm only counting bands I've heard complete albums by, so samples and individual songs are left out. Otherwise, my score would've been higher by a decent bit.

63. But that includes some bands that I m not very familiar with.

-------------
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.

I've heard one song from at least 68 of these artists. 

Also, this is the first time I've come across a decent non-poll prog poll thread. LOL

If you like Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream you should check them out, have to admit that them and The Future Kings Of England were adds on a purely personal basis rather than a recognized popularity basis.
