    It wasn't listed because Symphony X is Progressive Metal whereas these bands are Progressive Rock.

    Dude, take a listen to The Wall -> their concept album. And Symphony X is progressive metal.

    Cheers

    I don't get how a Symphony X fan complains about cheesiness! Spock's Beard is not cheesy anyway. (or at least not compared to most power metal)

    How the hell could you not include RUSH on a favorite prog rock group poll?!?! I mean c'mon!

    I love Floyd but Rush is just that much better...

    You really screwed up the list by leaving out RUSH, this is like having a list for the best film of all time and leaving out star wars for fuck sake.

    I'm voting for RUSH even though they are not on the list,

    Nah... Camel rocks em all up against the wall, and I love Rush and Genesis both. Gentle Giant makes it third behind Genesis at second, with Rush and Yes pulling up fourth. Nice poll, though.

    I voted "Other" because there's no Rush.

    Come on! Rush is like the Led Zep of prog! :)

    In the words of Rush:


    "We are good."

    Once more now everyone lets hear it for RUSH - yeahhhhhh

    Neil Peart is my idol because I aspire to be half the drummer/lyricist he was.

    Rush trivia - name that killer song :


    Imagine a time
    when it all begin
    In the dying days of a war
    A weapon that would settle the score

    Holy shite I love this song - A big bang :headbang:
    The synth totally takes me back to my childhood

    Thats Manhattan Project, i love that song also!

    I totally hear you on the drumming, and lyrics part. His lyrics always have depth and meaning, I wonder where Neil gets all the inspiration.

    Well done just testin the rest of you rush freaks and I doubt I will be able to beat people on the subject of rush with user names like g3ddy Lee!!

    Yeah Neil is my absolute idol and I wanted to be a drummer/song writer before I heard of him so now it's like he's god.

    Neil is a thinker who is intellectual but open minded, a combo very hard to find today and he expresses his feelings via the pen and his drumset.

    Ok one trivia Q for the road, just one line this time :

    Clutch at plausible deniability

    Quote from Yngvai X: "Duuuuude, where's Genesis, man? Selling England By the Pound, Foxtrot, and Nursery Cryme are some of my favorite 70s prog!"

    Yngvai, I have all of these!!! They are some of my absolute favorite albums... I have logged many hours listening to all of them, especially "Foxtrot." Steve Hackett's guitar parts are nuts, and Peter Gabriel's vocals are incredible... Have you heard the song "The Can Utility and the Coastliners?" That's my favorite! Aside from "The Knife," "Get 'Em Out by Friday" and "Return of the Giant Hogweed."
