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.

My top ten

10: Jethro Tull – Aqualung
9: Tool – Lateralus (lower on the list because it could be argued Tool is Prog metal)
8: Genesis – Selling England by the Pound
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)
