My favourite 20 prog-rock albums.
What about tales from topographic oceans.
Here my top 5 ( I am 12, so I dont know all the prog albums)
1: Animals- Pink Floyd
2: Selling England by the pound- Genesis
3: Wish you were here- Pink Floyd
4: Emerson, Lake and Palmer – Emerson, Lake and Palmer
5: Head hunter- Herbie Hancock
Let’s be honest. Pink Floyd is barely prog. Good band, but if we are to judge them by prog standards they fall flat on their face.
1) arbeit machtrea frei – Area
2) … everyone
Taking it funny It seems that Emerson and Lake were playing with a certain Powell.
I suspect Mr. Palmer kinda disagrees .
5. The Wall – Pink Floyd
4. In the Court of the Crimson King – King Crimson
3. Fragile – Yes
2. 2112 – Rush
1. Queen II – Queen
my top 5 prog albums (in no order)
In the Court of the Crimson King
In the Court of the Crimson King 2009 Remix
In the Court of the Crimson King 2004 Remaster
In the Court of the Crimson King Alternate version
Asia??? Emerson, lake and Powell??? ELO???
Pawn Hearts > Wish you were here
bleh, as far as rush goes i feel 2112 is SUPER overrated
In my opinion Animals is more prog than Dark side of the moon
So glad we agree on #1 🙂

7: Porcupine Tree – Fear of a Blank Planet
6: Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon
5: Pink Floyd – Wish you were Here
4: Rush – Every album they made in the 70’s because I can’t really choose individual albums
3: King Crimson – Red
2: Pink Floyd – Animals
Honorable Mentions –
Dream Theater – Octavarium (didn’t add it because it could also be argued that DT is Prog metal)
Rush – Moving Pictures
Tool – 10,000 days (without the title track and right in two it wouldn’t be in the honorable mentions)
1: Yes – Close to the Edge (since there is no bad part to this album and there’s no throwaway songs like there is on some Prog albums)
Excellent list, bro!
Close to The Edge is THE definetive prog album
I saw the mike oldfield album at my thrift shop and i have no fucking clue why i didn’t grab it it was 50 cents!
Foxtrot and Tarkus? You can’t get more prog than Supper’s ready. Or Tarkus.
If guys want to hear a recommendation;
