    My top would be something like ...

    In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
    Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull
    Argus - Wishbone Ash
    Fragile - Yes
    Brain Salad Surgery - E.L.P.
    Warrior On The Edge Of Time - Hawkwind
    Death Walks Behind You - Atomic Rooster
    Meddle - Pink Floyd
    Moving Waves - Focus
    A Farewell To Kings - Rush

    The order could easily be juggled mind.

    ^^I thought you were going to load up with RUSH albums Mighty Ent...??

    Cannons, I had a feeling you were going to go heavy with YES, but 4 albums in the top ten??

    Dream Theater is as much old fashioned prog rock as prog metal, hate splitting hairs when it comes to this but there's no avoiding it these days.

    Very surprising to see Dream Theater at the top of the list. Good for them.

    Don't like Dream Theater at all. I'd put some Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd and Gentle Giant albums in such a list. Oh, and Clutching at Straws.

    Yeah, Yes is my second favorite band ever just after Led Zeppelin... and their best albums are amongst my favorite albums of all time. I'm a little biased towards them:tongue:

    I'm more pleasantly surprised by the list than anything else. Rush listed several times? Cool! Dream Theater as #1? Not cool.
