STEVEN WILSON: HAS HE DITCHED PROG FOR POP?
There are colours. There are pop songs. He has his top off. Prog’s poster boy kickstarts a lighter, brighter song-based revival that strips emotions and post-truth right back to an ABBA-loving core. Despite his claim that his new album is more pop than prog, Steven Wilson has long struggled to break into the mainstream. But why? Progbrings together the former music editor at The Guardian and Wilson to discuss this, and his place in the modern music scene.

Since its arrival at the tail end of the 60s progressive rock has offered the world some of the most fascinating music ever heard, in varying guises over the years. Prog magazine brings you the stories behind the people who create these astounding sounds and amazing music, be they the classic originators such as Genesis, Pink Floyd and Yes, to the 80s revivalists such as Marillion and IQ, all the way through to those musicians today who have done so much to help rejuvenate the genre such as Muse, Radiohead, Steven Wilson, Opeth and Anathema.
