Feeling Art/Prog Rock

The past few days I’ve been leaning away form my post-punk garage and alternative and leaning into some of my prog/art rock roots.

Shocking. I know.

Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, Electric Light Orchestra, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music…

There’s something soothing and comforting about the old progrock and artrock bands.

Is anyone else a sucker for songs like “I Don’t Wanna Be Like You” or “Telephone Line” or “Rhiannon”? Maybe “Echoes” or “The Witch’s Promise”?

Gimme your progrock and artrock faves below. Disinterested in quibbling over which bands in which genres, only in hearing your additions.

  1. Oh goodness. I love ELO. Of course, Pink Floyd is my best band all around. Alan Parsons Project.

    So for AP – Tales of Mystery and Imagination is AMAZING… and I don’t like Poe at all.. but through AP’s perspective, it’s awesome. Whole Album.

    ELO will always find me singing at the top of my lungs and dancing… let’s see, of course Mr Blue Sky, Telephone Line, Evil Woman, Don’t Bring Me Down, Strange Magic…

    Pink Floyd… can’t name a song. Gotta go with albums… Animals, Wish You Were Here, Meddle, The Final Cut, Atomheartmother… actually… probably my favorite song is One Of These days especially from Pulse when it’s over 10mins. But Echoes is amazing and I is actually my ex’s favorite song.

    1. One of these days, I going to get you to…

      ELO had a bunch of awesome tunes in the early days. “A New World Record” is still perhaps my favorite of theirs, but I like “Discovery” and “Out of the Blue” nearly as much.
