Allright, in this thread we can duscus weather a band's music can be classified as progressive rock or not.
King Crimson - Yes
Hatfield & The North - No, Jazz-Rock
Yes - Yes (hehe)
Mike Oldfield - No, progressive folk rock
Genesis - Trespass - Wind & Wuthering, Yes
The Beatles - No, though one could label some of their last albums as proto-prog
Gentle Giant - Yes
Black Sabbath - No, hard rock. Though there are some moments on Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath (where Rick Wakeman played keyboards) and on Sabotage that could be progressive.
Anekdoten - Yes
Brand X - No, Jazz rock/fusion
Camel - Yes
Caravan - Yeee,eee,..no. Cantebury Rock/Psycedelic Rock. Though the "If I Could Do It All Over Again" an "In the Land of G&P" are at times progressive, as a whole, this is not a progressive rock band, but you se from my initial responce that I have some doubts
