    It will be more easy for me to say what prog sub-genres are not between my favorites .
    So, I'm not very much into:

    Zeuhl (I tried Magma few years ago and didn't work for me)
    Crossover (Maybe I will have to work more on Procol Harum and The Moody Blues :confused:)
    Experimental/Post Metal & Post Rock/Math Rock (I really hate the term of "post metal/rock" :D although I like Tool :grinthumb)
    RIO/Avant-Prog

    I like them all. I consider the metal stuff to be more a part of metal than prog though. It's called progressive metal not metal progressive. I've had arguments with people about this though so obviously not everyone sees it that way.

    Ok, I just saw that the subcategories were taken from P.A. so now I understand. Yes, they do it that way and have a lot(maybe even too many in fact)sub-genres.
