Crazy World of Arthur Brown
Genesis (all eras)
The best of the best
Quoted from Frippertron:
Methos I love all Peter Gabriel Genesis. Form their MOD stuff in the 60'S through Lamb lies down on Broadway. I like the first two Phil Collins records. Trick of the Tail and Wind and Wuthering in 76. I like Fish Era Marillion, particularly Clutching at Straws. I like Spock's Beard too, I think I only have a couple albums but what I have heard I like. I also have In Absentia by Porcupine Tree. You have good taste my friend
All great selections. If you like those and you are still looking for more, try Duke by Genesis, Marbles by Marillion (inclues 2 of the best 12 minute songs ever done- The Invisible Man and Ocean Cloud), and DeadWing by Porcupine Tree, which was the album after In Absentia.
All great stuff.
The best rock/concept album ever done IMO. I was 17 when it came out and we were fans of the band already from The Warning and Rage for Order, so we were early adopters.
I've heard the album probably north of 150 times and have seen the band a dozen times. I just shared it with my 16 year old, so it's like discovering it all over again.
Quoted from beepnutz:
Prog fan here, saw many of the bands, started going to concerts in 1974, used to go to NEARFEST in Pa./N.Y. back in 2001 - 2004. That's North East Art Rock Festival and they had many foreign prog bands and many of the new and old ones. Anybody else attend NEARFEST?
ps......Porcupine Tree/Steven Wilson is one of my favorites.
I think one of the best PT boots I have is PT at NEARFEST at the 2001 show? It is an excellent recording from their Lightbulb Sun tour. It is a shame that PT is no more, they had an incredible run. Wilson's BLACKFIELD is another favorite. The first two albums are on a level of songwriting and production second to none.
I know Wilson has a nice solo career, but I miss PT's sound.
While I think Deadwing is their mastepiece, there is something special about Lightbulb Sun and Stupid Dream. They are like Rubber Soul and Revolver to me - a perfect blend of various styles of music on two albums at the peak of creativity and craftsmanship.
Also special nod to Voyage 34 and Stars Die. Both oldies but full of musical bliss.
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:
From one of my uncles, I received as a gift my dad's original LP copy of Seventh Sojourn which while worn, still plays nicely. I also got his LPs of some Bruce Springsteen record (boo), some Jimmy Buffet thing (yeecch), Yes' Fragile (!!), and Dark side of the Moon. Huge score
I know everyone on the world loves Buffet, but I must just be the odd man out.
