Agreed. Akkerman is incredible, but his solo stuff doesn't have nearly as much recognition as his stuff with Focus, so it's not really Top 100 material.

And yeah, Moving Waves should be on the Top 100 list.

Moving Waves will almost certainly make an appearance. Hamburger Concerto and Focus III have a pretty good chance of making the list, too, depending on space.

Yeah I'm going to be editing this list over the next few months, when I have the time. The list's not great, so it shouldn't be too difficult to improve. Selling England By the Pound is probably going to go top 2. Albums like Lateralus are moving way the fuck down.


SEbtP I'd make top 3, but top 2? I still think those spots are eternally reserved for Court of the Crimson King at 1 and Close to the Edge at 2. I'd have the top 5 as they are now, and just switch SEbtP with Brain Salad.

Bought Tarkus today, giving it a listen now. Not bad.

The Who Sell Out? Tommy? Who's Next? Quadrophenia?

Chicago Transit Authority? Chicago II?

All great albums, but not progressive.

The Who: some of the first and best concept albums are not progressive?

Chicago: some of the first and best albums to combine rock, jazz and classical are not progressive?

I think you're taking the term 'progressive' too literally. There's an area of rock that is designated as progressive rock; this isn't just for any albums that were innovative in some way.

Tommy or Who's Next was just any album?

They're not progressive rock albums.

The Who: Concept album =/= progressive. Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by Smashing Pumpkins is beautiful, innovative, and an awesome concept album but isn't even remotely progressive.

Chicago: Jazz/rock combinations are fusion, not progressive rock. And Chicago is barely fusion. They don't really focus on soloing as much as fusion groups do.



I think I'm going to make a list of bands that aren't progressive just to get it out of the way.

Deep Purple
The Who
Led Zeppelin
Chicago
Traffic
Yanni
The Beatles
Metallica
Iron Maiden
Judas Priest
Fusion in general

Yes, but this is a revision. They're a good blues-rock band with lots of awesome improvisation but it's not enough to be progressive.

Although ProgArchives seems to have them listed under "Eclectic Prog", so I may have to relent on them.
