Renaissance I don't know.

Never heard of prog-lite: if it's a subgenre you're trying to make up or assign, you'd need to define its parameters...

Edit: lists Kansas as "Symphonic prog", so maybe; though they also show Journey (JOURNEY!) as "prog related". Hmm. Other than their really early albums, I don't see it...
Shame on you, Kansas were very much prog in the 1970s.
