Progressive rock, or prog rock, is a broad genre of rock music typified by ambitious compositions, clever experimentation, concept-driven lyrics, and musical virtuosity. Developed in Great Britain from the embers of the psychedelic era of the late 1960s, prog rock took music to another, more complex level, attracting musicians with a greater understanding of music theory and musical history. From this creative baseline sprang a number of truly innovative bands, groups such as Pink Floyd, Genesis, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Indeed, the 1970s provided a fertile platform on which rock's technical and compositional boundaries were pushed to exciting new artistic extremes.
