How about Paul McCartney`s `Band on the Run'??? For me, simply the best Beatles solo album there is. Individually the four of them have never mtched as to what they have done as a collective group, but macca comes close withtis effort. This album does not contain mere `silly love songs'. Not one tra...

How about the mighty `Tarkus' from ELP, the tale about the armadillo with the body of a tank that takes on different mythological freaks of nature??? If Led Zep were heavy, ELP were...

For me, it was always the big 4; Yes, ELp, Floyd and Genesis. I wouldn`t consider myself a prog-fan in anyway.I tend to go for emotion and feel rather than who can play in 6/4 masturbation. That`s all well and good, but what are you trying to prove and say? I enjoy those bands immensely because they...
