    Ah, that's better. Definitely more progressive, and overall higher quality. Have they got any super-long songs? I love those... :headbang:

    Hmm, I honestly don't know. Woah, I thought I recognized this band. I have three of their albums. O_O You can download their first few albums here. The song I posted is on one of the albums free to download. :D

    I enjoy Neal Morse's solo albums. Although, I can't really say which album of his I like best. I see you like Transatlantic. To me, they are fairly similar to Neal's solo work, given Neal's vocals and musical contributions to Transatlantic. Sola Scriptura clocks in over 75 minutes with just 4 songs (if you like the longer songs :)). Though, I must disclose that prog rock is not my preferred genre (I much prefer prog/power metal). Besides Neal Morse, Transatlantic, and some of Jordan Rudess's solo albums, Rush and Enchant are probably the closest I get to prog rock. I own no albums by Yes, Genesis, ELP, Pink Floyd, Gentle Giant, etc.

    Enchant's singer Ted Leonard released a Christian solo album in 2007. It's generally more mellow than Enchant, though not overly prog. Here's the only song I could find on youtube, which is probably one of my favorites off the album.

    As far as prog rock try these:

    Pink Floyd
    Rush
    Transatlantic
    Kansas
    Styx
    Sieges Even
    Subsignal
    Ayreon (Sometimes it's prog metal)


    O.K. guys and something a lil different (Not really prog rock... it's cinematic rock):

    I'm not a big Neal fan, but absolutely love Sola Scriptura. Also dig Transatlantic.

    One more progressive metal I haven't seen in the previous posts - Seventh Wonder.

    Seventh Wonder's Mercy Falls is a totally awesome album! Nice story/concept. I've been listening to it a lot over the last 6 months. The singer has an incredible voice.

    Seventh Wonder is pretty cool. I need to listen to more of their stuff.

    What's the general opinion on Porcupine Tree? I heard that Mike Portnoy is planning on a side project with Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth fame and Steven Wilson of the aforementioned PT, which I've never listened to. Should I expect great things?

    After all of this prog rock talk, I decided to pull out Kansas' Leftoverture and Point of Know Return albums. :b

    I haven't downloaded yet, but am planning to soon (going to get their second album first for the 10 minute closing track). Another question: Would you say they're more prog rock or metal? I'm kind of uptight about my genre listings. Encyclopedia Metallum says they're prog metal, but then they say the same about Transatlantic, so I don't know what to think...

    I'd say Prog Rock. They just don't have that metal "quality".

    Guysssss!!!
    Don't genre it all!
    Just enjoy whatever you like, I know it's all fun and dandy to categorise, but I'm in such a funk-ass high as the heavens mood I don't wanna hear another 'rock-metal' debate, when everybody just knows it's all MUSIC, and it's beautiful :D

    Don't hate me, I'm an analyst at heart as well, I just want to take this moment to celebrate life, I love you all, and no I hadn't been drinking, it's a school day :D

    This story ain't over!!!

    I wish I could, but if I have something labeled wrong or put in the wrong place it just irks me to no end.

    Christian Liljegren is back with a Neo-Classical Metal band!

    Golden Resurrection has already gotten a song up on YouTube check it out!
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBgSK1htv_w&feature=player_embedded[/ame]

    Right now Christian has Tommy of ReinXeed (among others) as the lead guitarist and Olov of Audiovision on the Keys. :D

    In the video, it also looks like Simeon from Audiovision on the bass. But I'm not certain. Does anyone know the drummer? Never seen him before. o_O

    Ahah, I just finished the video and I never noticed the release date. Didn't realize it was so soon. I'm really excited now.

    The Narnia guy?
    Why did Narnia split anyway?

    BTW, after watching Golden Resurrection I am absolutely positive to state my opinion... Liljegren is a fantastic singer, but his lyric-writing skills are crap.

    Yeah, I agree. His lyrics are cheesy. Could stand to learn a couple of lessons from Matt Smith. :p

    His dance moves are pretty bad too. xP
