One of the most popular, yet hard to define music genres is progressive rock. Many consider progressive rock to be rock music in its ultimate art form, comparing the classic bands of rock’s golden era, such as Pink Floyd, Yes, Renaissance and Genesis to the golden age of the classical composers (Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky) Not only does progressive rock comes with amazing chops from some of the finest virtuoso musicians, it also paints a rich landscape of sound textures, perfect music for a movie soundtrack.

Progressive rock comes in an assorted mix of different instruments and melodies for people of all backgrounds although the most popular instruments are electric guitars and synthesizers. You do not have to purely be a rock fan in order to enjoy the sounds of progressive rock. If you are a fan of music in general, progressive rock may be just the music genre for you. Whether you like hard rock, alternative rock, classic rock, or even experimental rock, this type of music is going to feel like a breath of fresh air.

For movie watchers, you may be wondering what genre of music is playing in the background of your favorite film. If it’s some type of undefinable rock, it’s probably progressive rock you are hearing but never really knew what to call it. No matter what is going on in the scene, progressive rock is one of those genres that really fits into any mold and can convey a message and emotion better than a lot of other genres.
