    Caravan were awesome!

    In fact, I'm going to put If I Could Do It All Again I'd Do It All Over You on right now :)

    Caravan were indeed awesome.

    Nine Feet Underground stands up against any extended piece in rock history. Totally unique guitar sound aswell. You always immediately know you're listening to Pye Hastings.

    Saw the BBC4 documentary on the train this morning, it was really good. Quite interesting in fact.

    JSW: the thing about prog rock - including Rush - is that you have to give yourself time to get to know it, the stuff isn't easily accessible. It's worth the investment though.

    Nine Feet Underground by Caravan and Supper's Ready by Genesis would be my desert island songs. I never grow tired of listening to them.

    Listen to moving Pictures by Rush.

    One of my fav. albums of all time. About as accessible as they got really.

    FCUTA!

    I always recommend people to start with Moving Pictures if I'm trying to push Rush on them!

    Personally I started with 2112, but I was already into prog at the time.

    Is that the one with Tom Sawyer on? I think I had that many moons ago at Uni. Probably 14 years or more since I heard that album!

    otto - agree completely about the need to make an investment in it. Funny that this thread should come up now because I was stood with A Farewell to Kings in my hand last week thinking "I really ought to give this another go." So I shall!

    Agreed with Moving Pictures as the Rush gateway album. My favourites in order are:

    Fly By Night
    Caress of Steel
    Farewell to Kings
    Moving Pictures
    Permanent Waves
    2112
    Hemispheres

    Though that's a bit arbitrary as I absolutely love some tracks on each album. But the second and third albums are my favourites for their whacked out hippy bollocks (Necromancer lol). I still struggle to figure out which is the hero: By-Tor or the Snow Dog? :D

    No, no. I just couldn't think of anything to add to your fine setlist.

    Now, once again. does anybody like KingsX?

    I think I gave In The Court of The Crimson a King (or whichever album has the Cat Food song) a try many years ago but that's it. Someone lent me that and a Van Der Graaf Generator album, neither of which went down very well tbh.

    I also tried a Peter Hamill solo album purely because it was lying on the floor in the album artwork for Marillion's Fugazi.

    I'm looking back over the last few posts to work out who you might be referring to and the only names I can come up with are Robert Fripp and Toyah but that strikes me as soooo unlikely I can't bring myself to believe it. Surely not?? That would be like Wurzel Gummidge marrying Siouxsie Sioux. o_O

    I love Gretchen Goes To Nebraska, but I can take or leave their other stuff. Got Dogman expecting it to be as good and it wasn't. At all.

    One of the few great three pieces in rock though, no doubt.

    I met a guy in Orlando when I was there in April who was in a King's X cover band! He was a fair bit older than me and a businessman complete with suit and tie and whatnot, but the prog was definitely strong with that one. He promised me he'd give Marillion a go.

    As for King Crimson, I find them rather hit and miss. Debut album is an undeniable classic, Larks Tongues is great, Red is influential obviously but ultimately leaves me cold, and everything after the reformation is just a bit too eclectic for me to be honest.

    A friend of mine is supporting Kings X in a few weeks time, he's one of Tomera.

    Brave is arguably the best thing they've ever done. Surely one of the best concept albums of all time. So much power and emotion in one disc that no matter how many times I listen to it it always moves me.

    Marbles is an underrated one too. Their most recent good album :)

    The new (double) album Happiness is the Road is also fab.

    Brave is my favourite album of all time though.
