Tell me - wahat genre would you put Nightwish in then? And don't come here and say something like "symphony metal" or anything of the kind... anyone with the sort of ideas that comes out of Nightwish are worthy of being called progressive; never mind genre definitions.

indeed. later albums don't even have the "power" component, just plain gothic bullshit.

I'm just getting into prog myself ...
I find it is difficult to find any progressive CDs unfortunately. Having heard Symphony-x's "divine wings of tragedy" several times (and a few other of their songs) I think I've fallen in love with the genre. What really strikes me about this band is that often they're essentially writing classical (sounds like Bach or Mozart) music but with a typical power metal arrangement of instruments (guitar bass vocal drums and the variable: keyboard). In just about every song you can ignore all instruments except for one and just focus on that one and still be really interested. How they manage to write that many independant riffs that all sound good together is beyond me. I guess it helps that they have one guitar and one keyboard instead of 2 guitars, but the keyboard is kind of like adding 2 instruments since both hands often play something independant. The vocalist rules! And those are some of my favorite key solos.

I've also heard some glimpses into the work of other bands, but don't have any albums from:
Gordian Knot
Andromeda
Vintersorg
among some of the other stuff that was mentioned here. I also know some of the popular stuff more extensively like Dream Theater. I didn't know Borknagar was considered as Progressive. I have "the archaic course" and think it is awesome.

By the way, if one was to classify Tool, would they fit under progressive rock? It almost has a metal feel to it but it certainly would stand out if I was to call them a progressive metal band. What do you all think?

Well, I'd consider Genesis Progressive Pop, whereas Yes and Rush are closer to Progressive Metal than pop.

The only bands that are labeled as progressive that I like are
Watchtower
Rush
Spiral Architect
Psychotic Waltz
and "Images And Words" by Dream Theater(I didn't like their other albums at all)
