If nobody else wants the eighth spot, I'll take it.

1. Green Carnation: Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness (60:06)
2. Dream Theater: Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence (live) (41:30)
3. Porcupine Tree: Moonloop (40:07)



But please, don't put me in the same group as that Axver guy. As much as I hate him, I don't want to make him feel bad by trouncing his pathetic tracklist.

It's prog.

They're all going to be pathetic tracklists.

Creating a prog playlist: several hours
Uploading that playlist: 3 hours
Seeing Brau's face when he sees the length of each track: timeless

I really hope you listen to all the playlists because I think you might like some of this Prog rock.

I intend on actually downloading these playlists and checking them out. I couldn't join though...my knowledge of prog is limited to Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Spock's Beard, and Porcupine Tree.

My hope is that these playlists introduce a few people to artists that are criminally unheard of. I think most people will be shocked by how diverse the genre is.

Uh, no. Sorry to disappoint, but everyone else involved with this game is going to have great tracklists. Hell, I owe virtually all of my appreciation of post-1979 prog to Axver! If you're going to vote, please vote on the tracklist you like most.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, that song is on my list.

Certainly nothing wrong with that. In fact, I have every single one of those artists on my playlist.

I'm very excited to learn. There was a time when I LOVED prog. (my attention span was ridiculous then; I could listen to a 20 minute song and it felt like 3 minutes...now I can barely get through a U2 album without skipping around )When I heard Supper's Ready for the first time, it was amazing. It made me fall in love with the genre. I kind of lost track of it though as I got into more and more bands that were better known, and now my knowledge is thin.

We'll re-educate you. My cure for dealing with really long songs is to listen with headphones. On Supper's Ready for example, the song is continous so when you listen on headphones you catch the soft, beautiful stretches and how stunning each transition is. I like to think of the longer prog rock peices as little movies that need the listener to enter that mood or world.
