Who's the Boss in the Factory?


Quality prog with a good balance of vintage symphonic prog, hard rock aggression, wankery and jazzy interludes.
2Anathema
Weather Systems


Epic atmospheric rock with slight prog inclinations. Fantastic vocal performances by Vincent and Lee. I was pleasantly surprised with this record, even though the compositions are pretty predictable.
3Anekdoten
Gravity


King Crimson seeps into the music, not surprising considering the band was a KC cover band prior to writing their own material. Thumping basslines, soft emotional vocals, moody compositions, and loads of Mellotron.
4The Doors
The Doors


Acid rock with a pretty distinct style. This is the stuff you listen to when you want to relax. That Organ tone is to die for, it never gets old (plus I'm a sucker for any Organ), and neither does Jim's voice, incredibly divese and emotive. This is the end, beautiful friend.
5Coldplay
Mylo Xyloto


Coldplay is a nostalgic band, and I won't call it a guilty pleasure. They've experimented with their sound and I admire that, however it paid off much more with Viva La Vida than it did with this one. Still has some catchy moments and an overall uplifting tone.
6Gong
Gazeuse! (Expresso)


This isn't THE official Gong but an offshoot started by former Gong drummer Pierre Moerlen (I need to correct this in the Sput database). Quality jazz fusion with good rhythm and leadwork, and with great incorporation of percussions
7Gentle Giant
Gentle Giant


Quirky, experimental, innovative and truly progressive. Never afraid to incorporate whatever styles they deemed fit into one song. They aren't easy to get into but you can't deny the prowess and sheer innovation these guys brought to the music scene.
8Fleet Foxes
Fleet Foxes


I haven't heard much Indie at all but this allbum was apparently on Geddy Lee's list of albums he enjoys, and so I was curious. And no it's not like Rush.
9Captain Beyond
Captain Beyond


Old school Hard Rock with Psychedelic undertones. There's some absolute killer riffing on this one, which instantly enticed me. Song structures can feel monotonous but the riffs, songwriting and gorgeous guitar tones keep me interested.
10Allan Holdsworth
I.O.U.


The jazz fusion maestro himself. His music is definitely not easy to get into, plus I'm not a huge fan of extremely lengthy technical solo's, but on this album the songs are more structured and so they're easier to grasp. This might help me get into his other material, after all he's influenced a lot of the guitarists I admire, I had to see what the fuss is about.
