    Thanks, everyone! I'm currently going through some previews of all of them, but Elope caught my eye from Afterstasis's recommendation, and I really really like these guys!

    Tell me if you like this (then I will give you an album recommendation from the band):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gI04qsXJgh0

    Other than that I can list some modern Prog. albums not necessarily close to the artists you mentioned (most of these albums you should listen to in their entirety in one setting)
    Ayreon - The Human Equation
    Spock's Beard - Day For Night
    Pain Of Salvation - BE
    Porcupine Tree - Signify

    Ok, definitely need a Yes album. Since Fizz is here, I figured I'd ask.

    Well here a couple I can list that are awesome
    The YES Album
    Fragile
    Close To The Edge
    Tales Of The Topographic Ocean
    Relayer

    I would start with The YES Album then move through their discography chronologically until 90125 skip to Union then finish off the rest of the albums

    Their only good cover? I would point out almost everything on the Uncovered disc of Black Clouds & Silver Linings, but notably Tenement Funster / Flick Of The Wrist / Lily Of The Valley (which Brian May refers to as the best Queen cover ever), and also To Tame A Land. Possibly also Perfect Strangers off of A Change Of Seasons.

    Based on you liking The Who and The Stones, you might enjoy some of the recent "garage rock revival" groups: The Strokes, The White Stripes, Semi Precious Weapons (who sound like a glammier version of The White Stripes to me), The Detroit Cobras, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and lots of other bands that begin with the word 'the'...

    So, thanks to the people who recommended Mogwai. I really, really like them. Mr. Beast is epic.

    That was me. You're welcome. One of my personal favorite post-rock groups behind GY!BE and God Is an Astronaut.

    GY!BE and Tortoise are two of my favorites... haven't heard Mogwai, although I probably should.

    You might enjoy Leftover Crack. They're a fun listen, but I think they can be a bit sensational at times.

    All Is Violent, All Is Bright is my favorite from them, but all their albums are fantastic. They're one of the few post-rock bands that can actually do something similar to riffs and verse/chorus form, which is pretty rare in post-rock.

    I like Sigur Ros, I just don't LOVE LOVE LOVE them like you do.

    Another interesting fact is that God Is an Astronaut actually uses double bass pedals in a song or two. You'd think it would be a disaster, but it works out surprisingly well.

    Could someone recommend ONE OR TWO Zappa albums? I only have Hot Rats but I am really digging it. I understand the urge to say "all of it" but I want to take baby steps with this whole expanding horizons thing.

    After sampling some stuff from all of them, I have decided upon the following three albums to get me familiar with Michael Jackson. Are they the best for this purpose?

    Off the Wall
    Thriller
    Bad

    I'll vouch for what's been said. Three magnificent Zappa albums.
