Quick analysis of UK album charts shows us that the rank should be:

1. DSOTM
2. Misplaced Childhood
3. BSS
4. Selling England
5. Moving Pictures
6. CTTE
7. TAAB
8. ITCOTCK
9. Images and Words
10. Pawn Hearts

Slightly surprised that Marillion are ahead of Yes and ELP, and I didn't realise that Selling England had done so well.

Pawn Hearts in last place? Oh, and what happened to ITCOTCK?

The UK charts are absorbing the buys from that era, but they aren't taking any prog communities into account. Marillion should be 9th, followed then by Images and Words. 

ITCOTCK, I think, should be at least in the top 5. Just because so many consider it prog rock's first real album.

I agree, they measure popularity (to a degree) but that often translates into 'classic' (although not always).  Ironically, 'In The Wake of Poseidon' was initially at least, a bigger seller than ITCOTCK!  VDGG, in general, hardly register...

The Strawbs.  VERY cool choice!  I would have gone with Grave New World, but H&H is right up there.

Love most of these albums, had to venture to the Court for this one, however, my vote is nearly interchangeable with Pawn Hearts or DSOTM
Its simple, its genius, and most importantly, its Tangerine Dream.

So close for be between CTTE & Moving Pictures. I gave the edge to Moving Pictures but not by much.

Probably other. Wish You Were Here. All  fine except for the dated sounding Pawn Hearts.

Anyway I'd have a few things like Present's Triskaidekaphobie or UZ's Ceux du De Hors and different era King Crimson albums that fit into other.
