The Fifty Essential Prog Records
I'm currently working on this list, with the ones I own in bold. The original list had 52, but to shave it to a nice round number I got rid of a greatest hits collection and a live album (which I accidentally bought, not realizing it was just live shit). So tell me which of the non-bold ones I should make it a goal to get next, and if you're especially bored, embolden the ones you own:party:

If you do this, I'm making a 50 essential power metal albums list.

[B]Kansas- Leftoverture

Is "Carry On My Wayward Son" on there? That was on Guitar Hero 2 as an encore it was awesome to hear!

Now that is a bizarre list. Since when are the Beatles prog? Or Mike Oldfield? Or U2?


JRA 12-17-2006 08:31 PM

Get Sgt. Peppers.

Div 12-17-2006 09:13 PM

U2? What is the matter w...

ew, I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth

And to those who find it bizarre, the listmakers justified it by saying you don't have to be a prog band to make a prog album. So, the ones that aren't really prog aren't ones I have yet, so I can't judge, but I expect this to hold true.

SomewhereInTime72 12-18-2006 09:55 AM

Ew what a terrible list. :hecho:

Of those, I recommend 90125, Asia, and Stupid Dream. In that order I suppose.

But seriously just get Lark's Tongues In Aspic by King Crimson instead. Fuck this list.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 12:30 AM.
