Info

Progressive rock, sometimes abbreviated to “progressive”, “prog rock” or just “prog” and here n there referred to as “art rock”) is a form of Rock music that evolved in the late-1960s and early 1970s as part of a “mostly British attempt to elevate rock music to new levels of artistic credibility.

Progressive rock bands set out to push rock’s technical and compositional limits, by endeavoring to go beyond the standard Rock vibe of standard verse-chorus song structures. Additionally, Prog artists would take inspiration from classical, Jazz, and Avant-Garde music. Often these artists would produce Instrumental songs and songs that had lyrical content were sometimes conceptual, abstract, or based on fantasy. Progressive rock artists would often produce full “concept" albums, these albums usually told an epic story or concentrated on a grandiose theme.

Progressive rock developed from late-1960s Psychedelic Rock and Jazz Fusion, and grew to take inspiration from ever more diverse influences. The term became more widespread in and around the mid-1970s, with progressive rock reaching its peak of public attention in the 1970s and early 1980s.
