Progressive Rock that isn't dreadful

The Main Enemy is at home.
Been listening to Anglagard again after discussing em on the gigs thread. I still really fucking like this one, has an epic folk-y vibe to it and the retroactive romantic tendencies just hit the exact right spot for me :).

I've never listened to Porcupine Tree 'cause of their fans, but will give this a listen later if you reckon it's good.

Haven't got round to listening to it yet. What's the issue with their fans.
For completeness of collection, Also bought Wind & Wuthering. Possibly the most recent Genesis album I shall ever buy.

dont know if this has been posted yet. Always reminds me of Sunday lunchtime in the 70s as the instrumental was the theme tune for weekend world. My ears would prick up on this awesomely dramatic tune that sounded like it should belong to some mind blowing sci-fi drama - and then be baffled when what you got was Brian Walden interviewing Len Murray about controversial rostering arrangements at British Leyland.

Derrick Smalls short lived combo springs to mind. Actually there’s probably a half decent thread to be had on jazz influences and prog.

I saw an interview with Noel Gallagher were he seemed reluctant to believe Pink Floyd were a prog rock band.

I don't know if I posted this already, and it goes against the OP, but anyway this cover of The Wall (the whole album, making it longer) is awesome:

this is a typical track you get the idea
