on a roll with shit like Focus, Trace, Rick Wakeman, Steve Hillage, the older Mike Oldfield and this 1984 album by Anthony Phillips who used to be in Genesis.

 

i grew up on this stuff. and Jarre too. barely listened to stuff like this since i was about 9 though. it's probably why i later got into teh IDMz and electronical musics.

 

RECOMMEND ME MORE SHIT THAT'S GOOD LIKE THIS

I'm obsessed with Dungen. They have tons of killer instrumentals! All of their LPs are mind-blowing.

Here is the video the filmed for the same song...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAyU_B_x9RE

 

more good Dungen stuff...

I just found

where Gustav from Dungen is being a bit of a douchebag and has to shit really bad.

He also mentions that his #1 idol of all time is Aphex Twin!

Änglagård - Hybris

Dün - Eros

Schicke, Führs & Fröhling - Symphonic Pictures

 

There's a ton of great stuff out there too that has vocals but is maybe 50% or more instrumental, but the above albums are all instrumental.

this is probably missing what you're going for by a bit, but "tortoise" is one of my favorite bands. ever. i'd probably pit them as post rock, but it still stands that they are one of the most talented instrumental bands out there right now! their '09 album (beacons of ancestorship) was awesome, but i'd start with their early stuff like "tnt", "standards" and "it's all around you".

Oh I just remembered more:

 

Pekka Pohjola - Pihkasilmä kaarnakorva, Harakka Bialoipokku, Keesojen lehto (this one apparently with Mike Oldfield), and Visitation

All great jazz/rock fusion/progressive albums. He was the bass player for the Finnish prog rock band Wigwam. Of the four, I think I appreciate the Mike Oldfield one least.

 

Khan - Space Shanty

This one's not instrumental but perhaps mostly, and if you like Steve Hillage then what the fuck, you need this because he's in the band!

 

The Blue Effect/Modrý Efekt - Svitanie, Modrý Efekt & Radim Hladík

This one has some vocals but they're Czech and the instrumentation is so damn good, I have to include it. Beautiful album. I could say that about countless other prog albums though (minimal vocals/great instrumentation). Might as well include both of the albums I love by them.

 

Igra Staklenih Perli - Igra Staklenih Perli

This one is space-rockish prog from Yugoslavia. Short album with not-so-great production, but it's good.

this thread's probably more a search for shit my dad fed me when i was a kid, more than actual new music. just remembered Tomita and his incessant Debussy synth covers, also (theme from?) Boat Weirdos (i swear it was an actual film, i remember watching it, or at least watching something that i thought was Boat Weirdos when i was about 8) by Joe Walsh.

 

bah. keep it coming anyway

King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King

I'm pretty sure prog was born with this album. Feel free to prove me wrong, though. '21st Century Schizoid Man' is my favorite first song from any band - ever.

 

Frank Zappa - Roxy and Elsewhere

Contains the best half hour of prog I can think of in the tracks 'Echidna's Arf of You', 'Don't You Ever Wash That Thing', and finally 'The Bebop Tango (Of the Old Jazzmen's Church). Come to think of it, anything of Zappa's from 1970-1975 is likely to fit the bill.

No, I mean the original musical sense, not the WATMM sense.

 

For someone who loves prog and noodling as much as I do, I have an almost irrational hatred of everthing jazz.

 

Except for Sun Ra. Sun Ra isn't jazz, it's cosmic music beyond pitiful human concepts space and time and genre.

I don't know why you would like sun ra but not any other jazz. he wasn't that original. of course his output was very eclectic, too. some of his stuff was just paying tribute to old swing.
