While Trespass may have been a foreshadowing, Foxtrot is where Genesis blew the Prog roof off.

17. Etron Fou Leloublan - Batelages (1976)

One of those rare cases where a prog album is actually progressive instead of just being a regurgitation of the same old shit. The influence of French jazz is prominent on this album, as are elements of avant-prog and punk. Any serious fan of prog or the RIO movement should give this album a listen.

Oops, fixed. Now it's your turn: get to listening.

18. Hatfield And The North - The Rotters' Club


Top notch Canterbury scene prog. As with many Canterbury scene bands, the vocals are cringeworthy. However, the shredding is prodigious. A mix of jazz-infused pop tunes and epic sound explorations. More whole tone scales than you can shake a stick at. (They are so numerous that your stick would sooner be shaken into toothpicks!)

I'll go a bit further and say Queensryche's 'Operation:Mindcrime' to this day remains hard rock's reigning MAGNUM OPUS! Or at the VERY least, the most important album of Gen X without question ( ) ! An 80's touchstone if there ever was one ( ).

Having said that, I'm still not entirely sold on the idea that it's a "prog" album per se. Are there progressive elements on there? YES ( no pun intended.. ), however, not in the way albums like 'Tales From Topographic Oceans' or 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway' are. With 'Operation:Mindcrime', Queensryche NEVER left the "ROCK" behind, unlike MANY so-called "prog rock" albums that came before it. Be that as it may, I CAN understand why some refer to it that way ( ). Great pick 'dreamer' ( ) !

19. Marillion - Afraid of Sunlight


Love, love, love this band. This and Brave take turns as my fave my them from the Hogarth era. And ya, I like that better than the Fish era.

20. True Stories - David Sancious and Tone (1978)

David Sancious, could be the most underrated musician in the business today. An original member of Springsteen's E Street Band. He now sides for many of the heavy hitters in the industry (Eric Clapton, Sting, Peter Gabriel, etc.)
