Hey! I was so happy to see that there is a prog rock club on the forum. I didn't know. I'm glad to be a member :) 

I'm a big big fan of Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson's solo work and I just found this song today, which is an outtake of his newest album, To The Bone, and it sounds like old Porcupine Tree. Enjoy!

@Alex I like Wilson's solo albums, though I didn't like Raw to the Bone as much as his previous ones. The Raven that Refused to Sing and Han. Cannot. Erase. are both good albums. I like Porcupine Tree a lot.

@Prism Good track. I also really like Scheherazade And Other Stories, that is my favourite album. Turn of the Cards is also good.

I heard a small clip of this album on a documentary, just a small clip but enough to recognise the album and to remind me of it and bring certain memories flooding back.

@Nesf Oooh! I discovered Talk Talk recently, and also heard at least some of Spirit of Eden. It sounds great, guess I have to explore their music a bit more. Thanks for reminding me :)

This is Genesis all right, but I don't think that it is progressive rock - Genesis ceased to be a prog rock band after Peter Gabriel left.

Though I'm not a fan of the 80s and 90s stuff at all, I must take slight issue with this statement. The first two albums they released as a four-piece, A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering are solid progressive rock albums with the classical and folk influences of their predecessors largely intact, and the live album Seconds Out (featuring Bill Bruford) arguably represents the peak of their musicianship. Steve Hackett's departure in 1977 marked a much more significant shift in style and quality control, but I find the suggestion that any major change occured immediately after Peter's departure a little too reductive.

Yes, you are right, I was referring to 80s Genesis from Duke onwards. I didn't express myself concisely enough.

I hope this fits in here :) 

I don't know if it's considered Progressive rock, maybe more like Progressive Pop, however I think Kate Bush is very progressive in her approach to music. She was definitely not mainstream. And also, I am crazy about her music even though I've only listened to some of her records. Hounds of Love and The Kick Inside are personal favourites of mine. Her music and especially her voice really speaks to me.

@Alex I highly recommend her 2005 album Aerial if you haven't heard it. :)
