Yes reunited with the classic "Anderson, Howe, Squire, Wakeman, and White" lineup, Genesis tried to go back a more complex sound on the Phil Collins-less and failed miserably, and many more bands went back to the longer songs, Epic Rocking, and weird lyrics.
Prog Rock was one of the originators, and certainly one of the main motivators, of the Concept Album. Krautrock is a somewhat more Teutonic variant, which is sometimes considered a subgenre of progressive rock and sometimes its own (albeit related) genre.
Perhaps the most notorious offender was Yes' , even most progressive rock listeners found it to be an exhausting experience to listen to.
Thanks to the rise of New Wave and Punk Rock, the genre was mostly exhausted by the early 1980s, with the genre's most popular bands like Yes, Genesis, and Rush shifting towards a more radio-friendly sound and making music videos in The '80s, to great commercial success.
It didn't hurt that the band had already developed a distinctive visual identity through its Hipgnosis covers and live shows.
There was a sub genre that came in the mid-80s called neo-prog, which was basically bands trying to emulate the '70s progressive rock sound with '80s production and a few power ballads here and there.
Prog experienced a rebirth around the mid '90s with Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, and The Mars Volta being some of the new bands to emerge, and the classic bands that "went pop" in the '80s started to return to what made them famous initially.Classically-trained musicians such as Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman started to be drawn to rock, and they brought their repertoire with them.This is where Prog gets its modern image of classically-influenced songs with many extended solos, but Art Rock could refer to any attempt to elevate rock from its lowbrow image.This could include pop music with experimental elements (10cc and Roxy Music), and bands that used orchestral instruments (Electric Light Orchestra).Some bands fused with other styles: Jethro Tull were based on folk music, and the Canterbury bands leaned toward modern jazz.
Critics usually dismissed these bands as being "pretentious" (Pink Floyd is the only progressive rock band many rock critics will admit to liking, although even they received their fair share of critical drubbings at the time).
