Every Good Boy Deserves Favour - Moody Blues, is the best!
Aqualung and Meddle are very good, too.

I must admit I haven't heard listened to three or four of those albums in the list but out of the one's that I have listened to I'll go with-

1.Emerson Lake & Palmer- Tarkus
2.Yes- The Yes Album
3.Uriah Heep- Look At Yourself

I like Van Der Graaf Generator's version of Theme One which I believe maybe on the Pawn Hearts album(?) also I like Atomic Rooster's In Hearing Of album as well.

Hard to pick a permanent top 3 out of these, as all are fantastic... Would have Look At Yourself on that list, for sure.

For today,
Look At Yourself
Meddle
Aqualung
