    My stock answer, to the exclusion of everything else has always been "Close To The Edge".

    However... this time I am going with "Brain Salad Surgery". (Even I tire of seeing the same winner all the time! :tongue:)

    I picked Thick as a Brick. Part 1 is a masterpiece song to me.

    One of those polls where your answer would be different on another day.

    Today, I voted for DSOTM

    and feel bad for not voting for about half a dozen different options!

    Close to the Edge takes it by a country mile.

    Second place goes to Moonmadness.

    There are a few other worthy choices in the list ....2112, Selling England, Fragile.

    I always liked 'Crime of the Century' too but a lot of people wouldn't rate it as a particular stand out album.

    Personally I could never stand anything ELP ever did, and I think DSOTM is overrated (apart from 'Time')

    Like the poster above I've also never heard the albums with the Italian names...although I have heard of PFM the band....

    Yeah for me it's close to the edge.
    After that it was Pink Floyd Animals. IMO the best Floyd album but that is controversial.
    I'd put Animals second.
    Thick as a Brick is in there somewhere for sure.

    I'd also mention Peter Gabriel's first post Genesis Album as a classic.
