I like that Mr. Blue Sky song.
Pure pop
It gets all proggy at the end though.
Hello,

The only ELO song (cover, admittedly) I tolerate. I don't dislike the other singles but they all sounded like commercials - and now are frequent contributors to commercial soundtracks. I'm not sure if it's proggy but there are musicians besides the drummer sitting down throughout (piano players are allowed to sit but must leave the bench at some point during each song) - that qualifies it.

I love Owner of a Lonely Heart.
That's not my idea of prog. More pop orientated. But yeah I like it too.

Dunno, does early Queen count as "prog rock?" Probably not. Other than that, I hear Jenny Haan's Lion are pretty good.
I remember that post from what seems like a hundred years ago now.

Or anyone really, but hurry up, I've only got a few pans left. Though one did have beans in so may take a while after all.

Van Der Graaf Generator is really all you need.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Sorry was watching Liverpool lose in style.

King Crimson: “Starless”.

At 12 mins should be long enough for those tricky bean stains.

And 21st century schizoid man.

I dont listen to prog much, my older brother was into it. But King Crimson is tops for me.
