What is your Favorite prog album & your least favorite song from that album? 
For me the album would be Moving Pictures by Rush and my least favorite song is Witch Hunt.

Difficult; my favorite prog album only has three tracks, and I love them all.

At least it's not Thick as a Brick. LOL
 
 
 
I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.

My favourite album is Pawn Hearts, and while I do love all three tracks, it is Man-Erg that I love the least.

No, it is "Fairy Tales".

I normally nominate Holger Czukay's Movies, but I can't really name a least favourite song on that one. Going down the ranking from there, the title track on KC's Discipline is somewhat lamer than the rest, and "Leave It Open" on Kate Bush's Dreaming is a remarkably bad song on such a good album.

My choice for favourite album is probably not shared by anyone here (except for Jean), but when you watch your little four year old kids enjoying an album that much because of the fairy tales told to them by the voice and the music it becomes your favourite one. It is a mother thing.

How remarkably wrong you are about that one song when you are right about the rest

My favourite album is Wish you Were Here, but I can't warm up to Have a Cigar as much as I love the rest of the album.

Almost seconded. I'd pick Siberian Khatru, even though I still prefer it over many tracks off excellent albums.

A Trick of the Tail by Genesis is probably my all time favourite prog album. My least favourite track is the tile track.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Well it's all relative.
 
I'd say Close To the Edge and Siberian Khatru, which is a great song but overshadowed by two of the greatest prog songs ever recorded.

He did say "least favourite" - that doesn't mean it's weak.

Or SEBTP, and TBOEF.....

For me, "The Human Equation", and "Day 12: Trauma".  It's all relative, but if I had to pick a weak day, that would be it.....
