All the above you mentioned aren not Prog albums. LOL. Just because say Sgt peppers was full of experimentation does not make it progressive, you are just assuming it fits the bill However they are more related to Psychedia than anything, Only the years from then to near the back end of the 60's thru Proto prog bands into Crossover prog did major labels create offshoots such as EMI Harvest & Swirl Vertigo. Styles in music are very short before they morph into other things as were the longevity of Swirl Vertigo & RCA Neon.

The Pink Floyd & Soft Machine were doing things in 1967 that were not disimular to What Tangerine Dream were doing at the Zodiac club , Berlin around the same time, No way on earth is it Progressive Rock.
Genres are things we made up.

The funny thing about that album is people dont like it yet Some of Steve Howe & Rick Wakeman best playing is within the album. Jon Anderson solo LP: 'Olias Of Sunhillow' should be attractive to Topographics fans because its it very simular atmosphere to it.

I'll give it a shot. Topographic Oceans is everything I want from an overblown 70s prog album.

I think Tales is a great album that falls just short of being a masterpiece because it is a bit padded out in places, there was too much good material for a single LP but not quite enough for a double LP, a victim of the limitations of vinyl, also the production of the original album was a little murky and the 2016 Steven Wilson remaster is a big improvement.

Olias of Sunhillow is a lovely underrated gem of an album, definitely needs more recognition.

Did I say that? In prog circles it's rather divisive but it's not universally disliked, yeah some people hate it but it also has some pretty vocal fans including myself.

It's rating on ProgArchives is 3.91 which is not bad though that is still a bit lower than most of their 70s albums, still it's no Tormato which is their true nadir from that decade.

As not an insufferable prog nerd I don't care if it's padded. The heights it reaches are unmatched.
