Great Modern Bands for Lovers of Classic 70s Rock

A Listmania! list by alextorres "musiclover" (Near Bristol, UK)
 
Deadwing
1.  Deadwing by Porcupine Tree
The list author says:
  "Like others on the list, Porcupine Tree have been around a number of years but are very current - derived from Pink Floyd and space-rock, they have developed a heavier guitar based sound - first class"
13.47   Used & New from: 5.35
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

STORMS OVER STILL WATER
2.  STORMS OVER STILL WATER by Mostly Autumn
The list author says:
  "Starting off as a progressive folk-rock outfit, by the time of this 5th album they had dropped the folkier influences. More than one songwriter gives them a gorgeously varied sound."
13.25   Used & New from: 6.21
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Blackfield

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (97 customer reviews)

Second Life Syndrome
6.  Second Life Syndrome by Riverside

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

From The Sky
7.  From The Sky by Blackbud

Black Holes and Revelations
8.  Black Holes and Revelations by Muse

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (327 customer reviews)

Gods and Monsters [CD + DVD]
9.  Gods and Monsters [CD + DVD] by I Am Kloot

Sola Scriptura
10.  Sola Scriptura by Neal Morse

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)
