If I had to choose one out of this group of records (as hard as it is), I'd have to go with Yes Fragile.

Hard to  choose one.....for me a tie between CTTE, SEBTP, and Red.

Kind of an odd collection as none are my actual fave album for that year.  Out of this group the one I consistently listen to the most and gets my vote is H to He Wink

My favorite is Dark Side, but since it's below SEBT for 73' I'm undecided between Close to the Edge and Selling England by the Pound. I go with Genesis' since it has no votes.


Animals is the number one ranked album for 1977.

1          
4.52 | 2960 ratings
QWR = 4.4946
Animals
Pink Floyd     Psychedelic/Space Rock
Studio, 1977     
2          
4.35 | 1780 ratings
QWR = 4.3118
A Farewell To Kings
Rush     Heavy Prog
Studio, 1977

By the way, I wouldn't necessarily say that these are the highest rated albums, just the highest ranked due to PA's algorithms. The only reason, for instance, why Spectral Mornings is ranked higher than Western Culture and Heresie is because it has more ratings as opposed to better ratings (so Spectral Mornings has higher ratings in terms of more people rated it, but a lower average of all ratings). No reason I can see, though, why Farewell to Kings would be here instead of Animals (Animals has a higher average rating and more ratings). Trying to split the Rush vote? (joking)

By the way, not to be nit-picky, but it is Spectral Mornings, not Spectral Hackett, right?

Oops, my bad! LOL Yes, 1977 should be Animals and yes, I did mean Spectral Mornings. To be fair I posted this about 3 minutes before going to bed so next time I'll be sure to proofread a bit more carefully!
