Hi there, I didnt really know where to ask, for two years i've been in deep love , with long, melodic progressive rock albums, my favourites being Floyd's Atom heart Mother, Echoes, Shine On, Dogs, and of course Mike's TB,Hergest Ridge, Ommadawn and Amarok. I was wondering whether you knew other albums from other artists whiwh could give me the same kind of feeling (you know, travelling through space....)

Hello. The first 4 albums by Marillion are worth note. Speaking of Genesis(at first I thought Marillion was a Genesis tribute band)-was wrong-, always....1970 to 1982 I say to check out Genesis. Check out Renaissance, Synergy, Camel(Andrew Latimer), even more YES(Drama, etc), Steve Hackett, Anthony Phillips, Tony Banks, Alan Parsons Project, David Gilmour(solo), Tangerine Dream, Vangelis.....I could do this all day. Jim

and the relevance of your comment is?

Im sure this thread will save the original poster a lot of time rather than trudging through old posts...

or he can ignore it....easy choice.

"Spectral" is an interesting word, in that it can mean both ghostly and like a rainbow.  :)

Hastengas, I take it you have less time for Jethro Tull and ELP? NO time?

Relayer....the first album I ever bought with my own pocket money...it was £1.99 and I still have it to this day...the cd version is gone...all I have left is the sleeve after My M3 was stolen last year...Relayer was in the glovebox.....I hope the new owner likes it...and the car.
