I would actually do it the way Deep Purple did and add a 5th head: Christian Vander.
 
Hey, if you want all 4 of them to be German then, by all means. It's your Mount Rushmore of Prog.

That's the point I was trying to stress with this, that it's whoever each of you wants it to be. Sure, if I was to be 100% objective and leave my own personal feelings COMPLETELY out of it.. then I would also come up with Yes, Genesis, ELP, and KC lol. But I'd still be real tempted to try to find some room for Gentle Giant and my man Zappa(I honestly feel they both should be there somehow).
 
Thank you all for your responses so far. There've been some interesting ones lol.

Why, yes. As a matter of fact....

If there is a fifth then I'm definitely adding Saga. Been listening to their Silent Knight album today and man is it good. They are so underrated I can't believe it.
 
Edit: I love and respect the heck out of ELP, as evidenced by my avi. But 4 great albums(truly great I mean) just isn't enough. No matter how great and IMPORTANT those albums may be.. at least for my, personal, Mount Rushmore of Prog.

Glad to see people are really making this their own now and not just all going with the standard Yes, Genesis, ELP, and KC.. and not that there's anything wrong with that if those truly are your 4 favorite prog artists.

OK, if I'm going with my non objective list, and going the Deep Purple way and using 5 artists, then it's my personal top 5 (I couldn't go into a top 6, or 10, or whatever, because then I wouldn't know where to stop): Pink Floyd, Yes, Dream Theater, Rick Wakeman, and Mike Oldfield.
