    Uriah Heep did progressive hard rock years earllier (and better, but that is subjective).

    Genesis is number one, with Yes a close second.

    But for new bands, Unitopia is one of the best new bands out there!

    Your correct, take a look at Zappa, no airplay except for Valley Girl.

    After Davy O'list left (dissapeared ) they took his work and moved on with it.

    Question

    How about THE NICE (Kieth Emerson,Davy O'list,Rick Van DerLinden, Greg Lake And Fripp) and you need to look at Rick Wakeman,Bruford, Jon Anderson and Squire ( Yes ), Syd Barrett, David Gilmour, Roger Waters Pink Floyd ) and King Crimson Fripp,Giles, Greg Lake, Bufford.
    As you can see these artist switched from band to band. How can you ask which band is better than the other, when you do this you need to ask when, It all depends which member was with band at which time.

    TOOL is beautiful and organic music. Art of the highest caliber, imo. Gorgeous basso ostinati intertwining with the guitar's variations and developments. The drums layered and complex, driving the music with compound time and mixed meter perfectly integrated. Nothing ever feels forced or unnatural. Enthralling vocals that express the emotional content of the poetic lyrics with real sincerity. I know I sound pedantic, but I can't help it. I absolutely love them.

    Tracks I recommend:

    Reflection
    Jimmy
    Pushit
    Rosetta Stoned
    Schism
    The Patient

    Genesis - Greatest progressive band

    One has to be careful which words are used in this context. Most influential, probably King Crimson or Yes. But greatest Progressive rock band...genesis. Not individuals but the combination of great instrumentalists combining to create a back catelogue that changed and progressed through the 70's and 80's developing with the time and market demands. Live they were amazing, and the only band with mutiple 12 string guitars which has to be the most beautiful sound ion the world ( Ripples and entangled for example). Pink Floyd wrote some great tunes and had a relaxed feel, but they also wrote some real crap (the final cut??) Fav song has to be the live Dancing on the volcano/Los endos from seconds out - I am a guitarist but I love to play 'airdrums' to that and when the mellotron choirs come in ahhhhhhhhh.

    If you think the hackneyed and contrived music of Opeth is better than TOOL, then TOOL is simply over your head...

    I wouldn't describe Opeth as 'hackneyed and contrived' at all.

    Both Opeth and Tool should be applauded and respected for their ability to redifine their own sound and stretch the boundaries of the genre they have been placed in by their reviewers.

    To be able to produce consistently good albums over a long and varied career, that continue to bemuse and enthrall in equal measure, is something both bands can be very proud of.
