    I've recently got into progressive rock music such as the likes of Pink Floyd - The Division Bell and some early Marillion like Afraid of Sunlight, Brave, Season's End and Misplaced Childhood.

    I would really apreciate it if you guys could recommend me some similar music.

    Thanks :rockout:

    You've only mentioned the Division Bell. You probably know this already, but Pink Floyd is known as the premier prog. rock band. Listen to any of their albums. I recommend Meddle, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here and The Wall just for starters.

    That Marillion band has a psychedelic sound to it. Consider listening to some early Verve stuff. The Verve E.P is especially good.

    I don't know how "progressive" you consider this, but looking at the music that you have already referred to, I think you will enjoy Slowdive. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrFx5b47g1E&mode=related&search=

    When I think Prog rock, bands like King Crimson, Yes, Primus and Rush come to mind.

    I've got all of Pink Floyd's work and I only really like 3 or 4 of thier albums, The Division Bell, Wish you were here, and a momentary lapse of reason. I just like atmospheric, emotional songs like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuWxSgwERT8

    Ahhh, progressive stuff. In the early nineties it was about all I listened to. Here's a few of my favorites: Queesryche and Dream Theater.

    Wow, I haven't heard anyone mention Savatage in years. I saw them live in the early '90's at the Lost Horizon in Syracuse NY. :) If we are going to include progressive metal, you have to include don't laugh..Megadeth's "Rust in Peace" and WASP's "The Headless Children" and "Crimson Idol". They are really good albums, and very progressive and not what you'd expect..

    Thanks 4 all your suggestions guys! I'm currently ratting through my mum's CD collection and finding artists like Arena, Pendragon, Van Der Graff Generator, Jadis, Salem Hill, early Genesis and more!

    I'm gonna rip a few tracks and see what I like and check a few of your suggestions out too :toast:
