I always feel like there's an under-representation of classic prog rock here. It's a shame since it's a genre that I listen to often. And while I've got a million obscuro one offs, I have to go with one of the genre's all time best. This is a band that people who despise prog can still get into. It's heavy, and dark, but there's much fragile beauty as well. I think so much of this is due to the fact that Peter Hammill is a super badass who wrote simply amazing songs. All of their work is great, so this post could have been any album of theirs. It just happens that it's the one I saw first, and "The Emperor in his War-Room," is a fucking classic song. Sneer if you want at the prog genre (though you'd be an idiot to do so), but don't miss this.
