Progressive Rock: A Discussion

So I have to admit, I have become totally confused as to what constitutes progressive rock. The title in itself is confusing as music by its very nature is progressive; regardless of that though, what makes a band progressive rock in your eyes? To me, it has always been a band that incorporates various genres of music to create complex rhythmic and harmonic compositions. By that logic, lots of bands could be considered Prog rock; but to many people it appears that prog rock is just anything that they think "sounds" unusual, or any band that makes a "concept" album. what are your thoughts?
1King Crimson
in the court of the crimson king

The obligatory, definitive, progressive rock album.

Newer style of progressive rock that meets all criteria listed above.
3The dillinger escape plan
ire works

Incorporate various styles? Check.
Complex rhythmic structures? Check.
I have a feeling lots of people would disagree.
4Coheed and cambria
in keeping secrets of silent earth: 3

They don't really incorporate multiple genres. They aren't super complex. Really the only thing progressive about them is they make concept albums yet they are heralded as a progressive rock phenom?
5fair to midland
arrows and anchors

What? Really?
