Dylan Boyle, guitarist and vocalist of Electric Jury, related progressive rock to other types of music like blues and folk with a huge connection point being the lyrics.  According to Boyle, progressive rock began in England as rock music taking on aspects of blues music for an experimental sound, for instance Pink Floyd, Tool and Yes.
