What is Progressive Rock?

Excerpts From Wikipedia…

Progressive rock artists reject the limitations of popular music and aspire to create music for serious listening, often aspiring to the sophistication of jazz and classical music, sometimes incorporating folk and world music influences in as well.

…progressive rock is very much a musician’s form of music, designed to be analyzed, studied and appreciated by knowledgeable listeners. Although some progressive rock artists have enjoyed phenomenal success, progressive rock by nature appeals to a more specialized set of listeners than the broader target audiences of popular music.

The major acts that defined the genre in the 1970s are Jethro Tull, Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) , Rush, Gentle Giant, Supertramp, Van der Graaf Generator and King Crimson.
