  • 1) Yes 2) Genesis 3) ELP 4) King Crimson 5) Gentle Giant 6) Pink Floyd 7) Jethro Tull 8) Rush 9) Kansas 10) The Flower Kings

If you allowed prog metal I'd have to expand it to twenty artists and Blut aus Nord, Deathspell Omega, Enslaved, Gorguts, Kayo Dot, Lux Occulta, maudlin of the Well, Moonsorrow, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, and Devin Townsend would probably fill out the list. (If motW and KD count as one artist to you then throw Atheist on there as well).
  • masterpiece
  • I guess for me it goes 1. King Crimson, 2. Gentle Giant, 3. Pink Floyd, 4. Yes, 5. Camel. Haven't heard enough VDGG to put em on and say what you will about PF and if you consider them prof or not but they have some nice tunes.
  • fine by me as long as genesis and rush aren't there

  • Вот она, победа акустики над электронными экспериментами в проге(по крайней мере у Gentle Giant). Интересно, что вдохновило группу на такое занятное название?
  • Gentle Giant are the prog-kings in my opinion [2]
