Camel, GG, Renaissance and Genesis(Seconds Out) are head and shoulders above the rest.

Fair enough. For this one I'm still curious how the usual suspects do against each other.
Well, actually, it's not just the usual suspects with most fans... PF and KC are not in the final, VDGG did far worse than Camel, GG and Renaissance, whereas in most polls they're on a par with those, and we have Deep Purple. OK Yes is in the lead and Genesis is there with two albums but still.

Yessongs
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Very good showing by Deep Purple! I'm surprised that this album classified as "Proto-Prog" can defend the second rank. It's pretty strong though. In the first round, Genesis Live was better than Seconds Out, now it's no longer... Apparently all these Deep Purple voters love Genesis Live more; I can understand that, though despite not being the biggest Genesis fan, I voted Genesis Live here. It's just by some distance the Genesis album I play most often, a collection of powerful renditions of some of their strongest songs. Renaissance is my number two. 

Other things are still quite open; will Gentle Giant end up very respectable third? Will Renaissance beat Camel this time despite having lost to A Live Record in the semifinal? Can Jethro Tull at least keep up with the Genesis album that secures more votes?

Deep Purple are here on PA under proto-prog for the early Rod Evans era albums. What came later can be seen as hard rock, heavy prog, blues rock.

This album can be classified as Prog Related, or maybe even Heavy Prog, methinks (not as Proto-Prog). Anyway, it can keep par with the major prog live albums.

Genesis Live, my first Genesis and first prog album. I played it again after ten years maybe. Still love it.

So the ranking is
1) Yessongs
2) Made in Japan
3) Playing the Fool
4) Bursting Out and Seconds Out
6) Genesis Live
7) Live at Carnegie Hall
8) A Live Record

Yessongs is an unsurprising yet  worthy winner in my opinion even though I'd have ranked it at about 4 out of these.
I'm really surprised that Deep Purple can secure the second place, and it's also unusual to see Camel in the last position for once, although given that KC, PF, ELP and VDGG didn't even make the final, it's not that much of an embarrassment.
But this is all so tight that just by upping the poll things can change again.  Anyway, thanks for voting!
