Does anyone else listen to music like this? I have found it to be especially liberating to write after learning music like this. Here are a few good examples.

Arachnoid- Le Chamandere:



This next band is usually lighthearted and pop influenced, but this song fits into this category pretty well.

Strawberry Alarm Clock- Curse of the Witches:



Web- Love You(Fun fact, this album was the main inspiration behind Opeth's most recent release, "Heritage". As stated by Mikael Akerfeldt in an interview with Terrorizer magazine):

I have never listened to this music. It's interesting. The first two ones sound so unique to me while the third one really sound like Opeth. I searced for the third one at google but I can't find anything else (Do you have any other link?). Thanks for sharing this. wink.gif

Yup. Here is some more information on The Web. Particularly the I Spider album, as their first two albums with their original singer were actually jazz/blues.

This link contains quite a bit of information on the album.

Here is a little bit of wikipedia knowledge:

Lastly, here is what the ProgArchives has to say about The Web:

Here is some Yes from the earlier stages of their career when they had Steve Howe. During this phase, they were known for their 18-23 minutes anthems. Yes and Opeth set me down the path of finding all of the best Dark Progressive/Psychedelic music I could find some time ago.

This album is definitely a treat, but if you dont want to hear the whole thing, at least give the first 18:43 a listen. The first 18:43 is the title track to the album. It also happens to be my favourite recording by the band. It really takes you through a unique soundscape that remains complicated, yet not so complicated that it becomes disinteresting for the average listener.

Yes- Close to the Edge(Full Album):



Yes- Soundchaser:

Thanks for all this info mate! I'm bookmarking everything. I used to play Yes first albums when I was obsessed with Dream Theater, and trying to understand their music, listening to their influences.

Yes is a wonderful band. My ex girlfriend's dad used to play with them. He then went on to play in Prog Supergroups YOSO and Circa.

This man is just as lethal on an electric.
