Agreed - their music is littered with prog rock references, some of their 
albums more so than others (as already mentioned "10 to 1" and "Red 
sails..." are probably the best examples).

Have a listen to "Nothing lost, nothing gained" on the Blue Album (last 
track) - if that ain't prog-rock derived, I don't know what 
is!??!  :D   it's one of my fav Oils tracks, BTW...
