Great Prog Rock Albums – Part 2/2

Continuing from yesterday’s post, here are John Petrucci’s top 11 prog rock albums:

  1. Dixie DregsNight Of The Living Dregs
  2. Iron MaidenPiece Of Mind
  3. MarillionMisplaced Childhood
  4. MetallicaMaster Of Puppets
  5. Ozzy OsbourneDiary Of A Madman
  6. Pink FloydThe Wall
  7. Return To ForeverRomantic Warrior
  8. Rush2112
  9. RushHemispheres
  10. YesFragile
  11. YesClose To The Edge

Clearly, many prog rock fans would not classify some of these albums as prog rock, even with a rather expansive definition of the genre. However, as Petrucci explained, he took aspects of each of these groups to help forge the sound of Dream Theater.
