I live for prog rock too, best genre ever! I love the classis ones such as Yes, ELP, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Camel, Jethro Tull, Genesis and many more! The most recent ones: Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Riverside, Anathema, RPWL, Ayreon... and for sure the best current one for me is Steven Wilson, such a genius! Nice to be in touch with prog people. Cheers!

I got into progressive rock in the early 80's, starting with Asia, then branching out to bands Asia members had been in and other related bands. Bands I like include Yes, Renaissance, U.K., Rush, Genesis, King Crimson, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. I also listen to several more obscure ones from time to time.

 

I recently made a couple huge progressive rock playlists that you may find helpful for finding more progressive rock. They group whole albums together, and I use them by putting them on shuffle. Since the playlists, as posted here, are capping out at 200, I have edited this to also include playlist links.

 

This first one focuses on covers of progressive rock songs that were originally played by some of the classic artists I mentioned above. This is useful for finding newer progressive rock artists you may also like.

My second one focuses on what members of Yes have done outside of Yes. This sometimes includes other bands they were in or collaborations with artists who were not in Yes.

When Genesis released the R-Kive set a couple of years ago I thought it was a great idea, but was dissapointed with the watered-down result. So... here is R-Kive proper with what is available on Spotify. (Gabriel and Lamb missing...ouch.)
