    I didn't think the singer had any hair, don't think he does now anyway.

    Mindcrime is definitely prog. As is The Promised Land. Queensryche are not a hair metal band,  always much smarter.

    Recent albums are pish though.

    Was quite impressed by Mindcrime in the end, can see why it is highly rated.

    Personally, I wouldn't have lumped queensryche in with that.

    I thought 'hair metal' was more the glam bands like warrant, poison, faster pussycat et al. All the stuff that was more about the look (and hard rock hairspray) than the songs.

    I'm trying *very* hard to be polite about those bands!

    I don't really feel queensryche are prog either, but when you do a concept album, you're definitely sailing into prog-gy waters....

    As with any genre, there were probably some good ones in amongst the dross.

    I can't say much, been listening to Twisted Sister tonight, Skid Row last couple of days, with some Motley Crue to come. Also enjoy Steel Panther which is a parody of those type of bands.

    R Kelly made a concept album. So did Dela Soul.

    I can see where you are going, but intelligent songwriting, good musicianship, the concept album.

    I guess as a whole those kinda things indicate prog. Wish I hadn't asked now!

    Serious question, what is "progressive rock"?

    I've been listening to lots of maudlin of the Well recently, which is pretty much what I think of when I think of "progressive rock". But I understand more purists wouldn't consider them "progressive rock"?
    i don't know what the definition is but all prog rock i've listened to has an orchestral composition, the sounds are more important than the lyrics. often the lyrics make no sense and are merely decoration, conjuring up images of imaginative worlds of fantasy.

    Prog alert, BBC 4! All repeats, but good to annoy the missus with.

    Just listening to Banks of Eden by the Flower Kings. Probably there best since for me Space Revolver. Has all the usual ingredients you associate with them, really good.

    Just bumping so I can find the thread on my phone and try the Spotify links.

    Carry on. Nothing to see.

    Edit: yes I could have just followed it. :-/

    If its prog you like, try progstreaming.com. They post obscure (and sometimes not so obscure) prog albums which you can stream for about a couple of months.

    Amazon currently have a Kscope records sampler download for nowt. Can't say I'm familiar with much of it other than Anathema and Steve Wilson's work with both them or Opeth but it's suitably proggy.

    Pineapple Thief are good, and Steven Hogarth and Richard Barbieri are from Marillion and Porcupine Tree.

    Get bent.

    Is that the Richard Barbieri that used to be in Japan in the early 80's?

    Now that was a good band! I ridiculed them at the time, because my sister was into them, and big brother's have a duty to sneer at their sister's chosen musical taste, but I rediscovered them some years later, and they turned out some pretty cool stuff.

    I can recommend the new album from Pineapple Thief's Bruce Soord. The album is called The Wisdom of Crowds and he's got Jonas Renkse from Katatonia doing the vocals.

    I've never posted in here, despite my user name.

    Until now.

    Some of the Official Metal Appreciation Thread regulars are here too, great! :)

    Discovered these lads last week - Sound Of Contact. Vocalist and drummer is Simon Collins, son of, you've guessed it, Phil. Must track down the album, this is pretty decent.

    Oh, and if ever there's been a video worthy of an epilepsy warning, it's this one.

    You should check out the former band of Australian guitarist Sam Vallen, Quandary (and also his current one, Caligula's Horse). You used to be able get the 'Ready to Fail' album as a pay as much as you want deal, but I cant seem to find it anymore. Excellent musicians only let down by the vocals...just like Dream Theater ;)

    Progmeisters, dispense some wisdom if you would be so kind...

    I'm not sure why (knowing me, I'd probably read an article about them and then went out and made some impulse purchases), but some years ago I picked up a couple of albums by Coheed & Cambria.
    I have:

    Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume 1: From FearThrough The Eyes Of Madness

    and

    In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth: 3

    a) Is this, in the opinion of the panel, Prog?
    b) They both appear to be subsets of a larger body of work. Do I need to pick up all the others to fully appreciate it?

    I don't think I've ever actually listened to either of them, so I've no idea what they're like. Might put one on now and see...

    Having read the wiki, the body numbering system of the albums belies the actual number of said albums.

    I shall try In Keeping Secrets...

    I would say they are Prog, and Prog Archives supports my theory ;) My favourite C&C is Second Stage...

    I can't stand that band. The vocals are a complete turn off.

    It was a bit of a mixed bag. Some of it was great, some of it... less so.

    Our survey says...

    Inconsistent.

    Try the band '3'. Similar to Coheed (used to tour together) but with a different singing style...not as prog and not as sci-fi based :)
