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

Olli Pyy says:

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.

Taking it funny It seems that Emerson and Lake were playing with a certain Powell.
I suspect Mr. Palmer kinda disagrees .

Max H says:

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)
