Best Prog-Rock Albums Of All Time – (6 part series)
What are the best Prog-Rock albums of all time?
We’d love to hear your thoughts, But we have a few of our own.
Prog Rock (definition) Prog Rock: also known as Progressive Rock, is a rock music subgenre that originated in the United Kingdom, with further developments in western Europe, throughout the mid-to-late 1960s and 1970s.
Bands abandoned the short pop single in favor of instrumentation and compositional techniques more frequently associated with jazz or classical music in an effort to give rock music the same level of musical sophistication and critical respect. Songs were replaced by musical suites that often stretched to 20 or 40 minutes in length and contained symphonic influences, extended musical themes, fantasy-like ambiance and lyrics, and complex orchestrations.
Here’s the last of our installments featuring The Best Prog-Rock albums of all time.
This segment features more classic albums from the golden age and an encore from one of the genre’s favorites-Pink Floyd.
L-Steve Hillage (1976)
Crime Of The Century-Supertramp (1974)

It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War, and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Celebrate the day as Podcloud1 presents a spicy soundboard mix of latin-flavored sounds, 70′s funk and that little old band from Tejas to celebrate the holiday.
