Why the hell couldnt.  They use real sentences?

Also, I'm not gonna argue their choices, although their claiming Aqualung is prog-rock makes me wonder just what their definition is.  At any rate, with any meaningful definition (I can't define the term either), I will argue that Wagakki Band belongs on that list.

Yeah, I wouldn't put Jethro Tull on that list, and not Pink Floyd, either. I'm not sure what exactly Pink Floyd is, but it isn't prog rock.

All the rest... Yeah, they're pretty proggy.

I can see later Tull, just not Aqualung.  That was perfect Rock-Rock.

From Merriam Webster...
rock music characterized by relatively complex phrasings and improvisations and intended for a musically sophisticated audience

So yeah, Jethro Tull definitely belongs.

My 19 year old daughter hung out with one of her friends yesterday. Among the "thrifting" they did, they went to a used vinyl/CD store. She brought home two CDs - one of which was a "Yes" album.

Yeah, nobody knows rock music like Merriam Webster... that definition is so wide, it could include Van Halen and Justin Bieber.

$10 says it was 90125.

But if you haven't heard from her in days, perhaps weeks, then it was certainly "The Yes Album".  You better go check on her.  She'll need a farkload of potato chips and new headphones.

Gotta hand it to Zappa for that one. I love the Allman's original version, but you can kinda tell from how those musicians sound that Gregg had been screaming at them all day.

When Zappa played it, not only were they tight, they also sounded like they were having fun. You can see it when you look at the concert footage of both bands. Zappa's whole band looks like it's the best day of their life, Allmans look like they're trying to get through it without screwing up.

Kansas? If you ask me, one of the dullest of the 1970s arena rock bands. Almost at REO Speedwagon levels of tedium.

I wasted so much time listening to garbage music when I was young.

I always put Zappa in his own category.  His music defies description, unless you like going around bugging your friends about psychadelicjazzprogbuttrockshowtunes.

I always lumped Supertramp in with Styx, Foreigner, and the like.  Basically AOR back when AOR meant good music.

Seems like what they're calling "prog" is what we might call "indie rock" now.

Nah, their first album especially was definitely prog influenced. They changed up for Indelibly Stamped, but that record tanked so Davies and Hodgson fired the whole band basically, then dropped "Crime of the Century".
