TOP 5 PROG LIST (RIGHT NOW)? So, I had this fun idea, to ask everyone what their PERSONAL top 5 prog songs are right now (from any era). I expect this to really vary, because the genre has so many differences, from sometimes soft Gabriel-era Genesis to Death Metal Vocal Opeth, and from sometimes fun and light-hearted Haken to completely melancholy Steven Wilson. Here's my (only personal) 5 I would take with me anywhere if I only had to choose from: 5) Riverside - Second Life Syndrome 4) Haken - The Architect 3) Yes - The Gates of Delirium 2) Transatlantic - Stranger in Your Soul 1) Dream Theater - Breaking All Illusions I'm sure I'm missing many . . . and I only included one by each artist. How about you guys?

Some might point out the disturbing lack of the heavier stuff, from Queensryche to Opeth. But honestly, I've been exploring both of those discographies further (thanks to you guys) and I'm certain that I will have favorites from those very soon! My list fluctuates a lot. :)

Oh, and to point out how much my list changes, 60% of these aren't even on my iTunes account yet. ;)

Oh, albums too! Awesome . . . yes, I would agree that if I did albums instead of songs, the Lamb Lies Down of Broadway would be way up there! Just a masterpiece. Very good picks all around. :)
