In regards to King Crimson, Red is one of my favorite albums.
I don't have a lot of time to write up full reviews for all of these bands so I'll just post some youtubes of stuff I've been listening to lately.
Admittedly, I am more into prog-metal but I still love me some "classic" prog
Pagan's Mind: An absolutely fantastic Norwegian prog-metal band with a great singer. The song writing is good too. They have a running Stargate theme... hahaha. Their first album wasn't much to talk about, but their second and third (newest) albums are excellent.
Andromeda: Another band on the metal-side of prog, but there are still great laidback and melodic sections. Most of the music is written by their guitarist. Great melodies and time/groove changes. All of their albums are great and have a creepy undertone to them.
I recommend starting with their album "II=I" (Two is one).
The Flower Kings: Probably my favorite current generation progressive band. Lead by Roine Stolt (guitars for Transatlantic), this band pumps out epics like no one else. If you like Yes or Genesis, do yourself a favor and check this band out.

edit: How could I forget? Lately I've been getting into Kevin Gilbert

On this thread's recommendation I downloaded Unfold the Future and may I say this unashamed Yes worship loving owns.
You should check out more of The Flowerkings. The albums Paradox Hotel and Adam and Eve are two of my personal favorites.
edit: In fact I named my cat Roine.
