Detonator Posted December 28, 2014 Share Posted December 28, 2014 (edited) If we forget the "corporate" prog rock Rush, Floyd and Genesis and just concentrate on the "traditional prog" there are lots of great bands and unbelievable songs. Mike Oldfield has some prog masterpieces, like Ommadawn, King Crimson¨s Red is almost perfect album... and Starless is one of the best prog songs ever. Yes' Close to the Edge and live version of Starship Trooper (Keys to Ascension) are close to the title. And what about Alan Parsons' Tales of Mystery and Imagination... great stuff. But in the end of the day there must be only one song that raises above everything... Camel's Lady Fantasy. This song is closest to PERFECT progressive rock song ever made. It's just SO amazing. It's powerful, has heavenly guitar, incredible melody, almost "ghostly" atmosphere and very "touching" finish. Of course this is my subjective opinion only. But I've went through almost all meaningful prog bands and I have never heard anything better. This song is soo good, it brings a tear to my eye. Discuss. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhWDbdS-vjg Edited December 28, 2014 by Detonator 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
