I'd list the Passion Play or Thick as a Brick BUT those 2 are 1 long song for the whole album  :-)   
Same with wapassou - messe en ré mineur and Snow Goose by Camel  :-)

Tough call. Today, went with Caravan. Tomorrow, could have easily been something else...

I went with All Of The Above. It was the track that got me back into prog after many years of not listening to it. I also discovered Spock's Beard, The Flower Kings and Neal Morse's solo stuff because of it.

I agree that we can change from day to day.  I primarily put this up to there to learn about some new ones  :-)

For now, I went with SuperNova by Gracious.  The last few minutes with the pastoral harmony vocals (aka Beach Boys Pet Sounds) and mellotron build up takes me to another world.

IQ, they won't get a lot of votes anyway

Crap, you're right.  I'm sorry for that and I don't see a way to edit a poll once created.

If I could, I'd replace the extra Harmonium spot with "The fand" by "The Enid"

Although I have other personal favorites there's plenty of amazing ones too choose from:

Btw I don't often think about side long prog suites but I do think Earth and Fire's Song of the Marching Children is extremely overlooked on that regard. And in would fit nicely in this selection.

As much as I love Zarathustra (and a handful more) I feel boring as its really between three out of four of the biggies: Lizard, Echoes or Plague... but whichever I prefer depends on my mood and the season.

I chose Bubu. But my real answer (this evening) is Maneige's Le Rafiot - to my mind one of the greatest pieces in the progosphere, and quite hors categorie.

Bubu, then Harmonium, then King Crimson.

For me, it's between King Crimson, Nektar, Yes and Renaissance. Another would be Anthony Phillip's "Slow Dance Part 1".

I haven't heard all of these but Nine Feet Underground is an automatic win for me so had to vote for it.
