    Please don't make "greatest hits" of your personal favourites. Trying to make an "album" that sounded coherent, forming a unified whole, although it combines different acts with a variety of styles or subgenres within one genre. You can choose any genre.

    Make an "album" of 10 to 20 songs at most. Make a "Volume Two" or more if you like, but each "Volume" should not contain more than 20 songs.

    Here is my "album" of progressive music. Actually, "Volume One" and "Volume Two". I provided hyperlinks due to songs by some lesser-known acts, but of course it's not requested.

    Volume One

    Solaris (1995, instrumental) Solaris
    Yes (1977) Wonderous Stories

    Jon Anderson (1976) Flight of the Moorglade
    Vangelis (1980) See You Later
    Pink Floyd (1975) Welcome to the Machine
    Kayak (1973) See See the Sun
    Rick Wakeman (1973, instrumental) Catherine of Aragon

    Nice track listing. What genre is it? Can`t connect some of these artists/bands. I started guessing with `country rock` then `Laurel Canyon`...
