i really like progressive(antix,atmos,freq etc).especially before a month i attended a party and it had a huge impact on me.

 

i want to get deeper with this style.

 

i'd like you to reccommend me the 5 most essential albums of this genre so far.it will be my last purchase before the army.

 

PS.1.

i give lot of credit in the melodic line of the tracks->this means i don't like too minimal tracks...(freq-strange attractors kicks ass:melodic,uplifting and not too clubby).

PS.2.

i don't like much the house-ish vocal samples used in quite a few progressive tracks.

 

:rolleyes:

If you like progressive with melodies then you have to give Lish - Free Fall a try. I'm not that much into progressive but I really love this album.

 

Jaia - Fiction and Matenda - Tunnel Vision are also very nice.

I got a bit bored with the progressive stuff lately and therefore slightly lost track of it and melodic progressive never was my favourite anyway. But perhaps "Gaudium - Nordic Nature" could fit your taste.

That one is quite boring... Standard progressive with extremely... standardized melodies.

Haldolium - Haldolium

FREq - Strange Attractors

Neelix - No Way To Leave (this one has loads of vocals but they fit 100% :) )

Jaia - Fiction

Son Kite - Colours

 

There 5 albums.. but there are quite a few more.. like the latest Atmos album with "Transmission in Vain" ..FUCK WHAT A TRACK! :D

 

 

 

A perfect prog mix would have atleast these:

 

Haldolium - Shot Gun

Haldolium - All My Life

Jaia - Orchestra 2.0

Atmos - Transmission in Vain

Son Kite - On Air

FREq - Dreambody (Progressive Mix)

Neelix - No Way To Leave

Neelix - Complication

Antix - Hiding Place

 

and quite a few more but I suck at remembering track titles :(

Top Progressive Albums:

 

1) Antix - Lull

2) Phony Orphants - Symphony

3) Vibrasphere - Archipelagos

4) Atmos - 2nd Brigade

5) Etnoscope - Drums from the dawn of time

6) Gaudium - Nordic Nature

7) Noma - Navigator

8) Paste - Blow Out

9) Tegma - Encoded/Decoded

10) SBK - Hertzattacke

 

Majority of these albums are a couple of years old. The new stuff isn't as good as it used to be IMO.

Couldn't disagree more. In my opinion the worst use of vocals on a progressive album in 2005.

Now I must comment on your list :D

 

Vibrasphere is probably the most overrated prog act ever :P

 

Human Blue isnt that interesting either nor is SRange

 

Andromeda is awesome but the first album has imo very sucky mastering or smth

 

Yotopia and Lish I havent heard..

 

12 moons.. afai remember its nothing special either

 

..Vatos Locos is more like fool on

 

 

IMO

I heard plenty. I sadly bought the album without checking out samples or downloading mp3's beforehand - big mistake. When the original poster said he didn't want too many vocals, I just think the latest Neelix-album wasn't the best suggestion, since it's so heavy on very distinct vocals. But of course it's all a matter of taste.

Again it's all a matter of taste, so I can't really respond to any of your comments. One thing about the Vatos Locos album though - it's indeed a mix of progressive and full on, but apart from one track running at 145 BPM ("Acid Maria") it's actually SLOWER than your beloved Neelix ;)

Yeah but Neelix does not really have any singing.. just use of vocals. There is a difference. :D

 

Anyways about Vatos Locos.. afai remember almost all the tracks on that album have that awful rolling fool on bassline thing going. I could be wrong..

 

 

But yes taste taste taste. Many people seem to be so fond of Vibrasphere. IMO apart from a few nicey chill tunes there is really nothing to them..

Since everybody here is giving the same recommendations I'll try something different.

 

Check out ANYTHING from these labels:

 

Digital Structures: (Son Kite, Jaïa, Ticon...)

Spiral Trax (Gaudium, Atmos, Vibrapshere...)

Iboga (Phoney Orphants, FREq, Flowjob...)

Plastik Park & Avalanche : Progressive for the clubs

 

Most of these act evolved form more Minimal Trance in the past (harder & darker) to the new progressive: more melodic layers & sometimes even housey.

 

Some older albums that deserve everybody's full attention:

-SBK: Treibstoff

-Element: Full Moon (nearly every track has vocals, but they're amazingly not annoying ;) )

-Haldolium: H2

 

The most anticipated album for this year will probably be the full debut of Liquid Soul (on Iboga)
