CTTE and SEBTP are the two greatest prog albums----and whats so great about them is it's 5 guys playing similar instruments and they sound noting alike. CTTE is perfection and SEBTP has arguably the best long prog guitar solo (Firth) and the best long keys solo (Cinema) in prog.

My top choice is "Thick as a Brick" on this list of fantastic albums. In the Court and Close to the Edge follow, tied for second, and the rest very close behind.
