1001 Prog Albums You Must Hear Before You Die!



In the spirit of the popular tomes “1001 things you must do before you die, ” such as “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” or“1001 Guitar tunes you must play before you die”, I am going to do likewise. I own the “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” massive book and of course it features SOME Progressive Rock albums but it is not really complete.Likewise “1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die” is very limited in progressive rock material. These books always list the material in chronological order and likewise I will list the albums by year. I have had to do some extensive research to achieve a definitive list and of course there will be omissions but overall I hope to capture the spirit of each year. I used some polls to find albums and of course this website as well as others and many books have helped tremendously. In any case all albums are deserved of a listen and have their own brilliant moments, while they are by no means flawless. So here we go. Where to start is the question so I believe a good starting point is 1966 where Progressive Rock was beginning to make some kind of impact, or at least the sounds and musicianship that would encompass the progressive music insurgence.You are free to make suggestions and they may be taken in to account so let’s get to it!
You can click on the album titles to find out more about the albums - later I hope to add info and album covers for each selection.
