DESCRIPTION

The Prog Report is pleased to announce the first book dedicated to the resurgence of one of music’s most enduring and underrated genres. Essential Modern Progressive Rock Albums: Images and Words Behind Prog’s Most Celebrated Albums 1990-2016, authored by Prog Report editor Roie Avin, shines a light on the important albums of the modern progressive rock era. The book features more than 50 albums from the last quarter century of Prog, with each chapter dedicated to one album.

Featured in the book are prolific and pioneering artists such as Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Spock’s Beard, Marillion, The Flower Kings, Enchant, Fates Warning, Queensryche, and Big Big Train, along with more recent bands like Haken, Karnivool, Riverside, Between the Buried and Me, and The Dear Hunter, among the more than 30 bands included.  Drawing on original interviews with band members such as Mike Portnoy, Neal Morse, Steven Wilson, John Petrucci, Mikael Åkerfeldt, Roine Stolt, Pete Trewavas, and dozens more, the book offers an in-depth look at the stories behind the albums that shaped the next wave of progressive rock.  This book focuses solely on bands that carried the mantle of the genre’s initial ’70s explosion, artists that expanded the genre further, incorporating new sounds and elements to reach new audiences worldwide. 

Featuring full color images of the artists live, original press photos and brilliant album cover art, this 280+ page book will be one every Prog fan will want to display proudly as a badge of their fandom
