I've heard a lot of people say that Porcupine Tree are a prog band, but I really don't get it. I've heard a couple of their albums, and for the most part, they sound like pretty straightforward rock and roll, with some psychodelic elements, but not prog. Sure, they occasionally display a prog element, but a lot of bands do. It's not enough to call them a prog band, in my opinion.

Yes. The psychadelic elements and use of mellotron, moog, etc will land it firmly in the prog catagory for most people. Generally, psychodelic is being considered a prog subgenre nowadays.
