Kings X anyone? The band are friends of Dream Theatre, but less 'metal' lyrics.

Superb harmonies, too.

Maybe someone has cited Kluster, Cluster(Moebius+Roedelius), Faust, Harmonia, Michael Rother, Tangerine/Edgar Froese and others, in the early post, but they are very good.
Cluster is all that Kaftwerk could have been, and nor was a quartet, only two persons, sometime ago they made various concerts.

For those who like this type of music and want to explore it further with other fans, I suggest taking a look at www.progressiveears.com and reading the forums there.

Prog definitely is not dead. There's a lot of very good new music being made, in all it's genre's. A lot of it is from outside the US, of course, since our commercial music machine is controlled by a computer program telling fans what to like instead of identifying what fans are listening to.

A couple of relatively new bands that I've been listening to and liking are:

Porcupine Tree
Sieges Even
Sylvan
Magenta
Riverside
The Flower Kings
Spock's Beard

Enjoy,
Bob

I saw them in 1970, so I missed every thing of that album. I think it came out in 73.

Yep. One of the most contradictory, infuriating, inane, childish and hatred band in history, at their best. If anything, they undermined the entire prog rock cult from within.

I have all their albums on vinyl. Unfortunately (but not unexpected) all the eventually remastered CDs are, sound wise, pretty much garbage.

Gentle Giant was a very good band and I liked them a lot, but my favourite band in the beginning of the 70ís was King Crimson and I still listen to them quite often.

"Fracture" is, to me, the most dramatic moment in the prog rock history.

Eddie Jobson? Wow. No 'Fripp and Eno' or 'Phil Manzanara'? Good to see Roxy Music represented, I was first introduced to them about 1973. It's hard today to get a sense of how 'out there' they were back then. Virginia Plain baby.
