67/100 have I listened, 59 of those I own. There are a few, mostly RPI, that I want to hear and a few more I would like to own.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

Me neither. To be honest, I have my list of favorites, and that's what matter when I'm going to listen to music, either favorites or something new to discover. The rest come in second, albums that I occasionally listen to.

For me, being next to someone actually playing all of these things on radio in the 70's and 80's, it was different ... it was mostly about the NEW STUFF, because it was, usually, different and far out and neat to hear these things and no one knew what they were!

Thus, since then, my listening, tends to be about the new stuff and the different stuff, and rarely the best known material or the most famous ... for example, with the exception of one album (PP), Jethro Tull is the most over rated and least listened to in my ears!

Likewise, seeing a "top ten" turns me off from listening to a lot of things ... because I will concentrate on the stuff that is not mentioned, or worse ... even discussed because everyone else is just a fan, and not always attuned to the music itself.

From the top 100 list I counted 18 I hadn't listened to before. Another 20 or so I've only listened to once or twice and have little interest in. Of the remaining albums from that list I would have listened to at least to at 10 times or more so would classify them all as all 5 star albums.

88 out of 100.
...

AND, I will state that I have heard all of those albums quite a few times ... why? 

It's the fact that I love the music, not just a band, or a style ... and as such I can play it anytime, and it is STILL as satisfactory as it was 40 years ago ... and I know that this is something that most here, specially in this poll, will not appreciate, but GREAT music, will always be loved and enjoyed ... and above all ... remembered!

In that sense, I would say that PA has helped ... but we always want more, don't we?

41

Thought it would be more!

Of those, I don't consider OM by Queensryche to be prog, and I don't think it's very good either....

Only about 35 all the way through. I have heard pieces or a few songs form another 20 or so. Guess I have some catching up to do!

I think I've heard at least parts of all of them.
I own 47/100.

Most of the top 50 I've heard apart from Miles Davis (is he really 'prog'??)

After that there is a lot of stuff I've not heard. Overall about 70-80 albums I have heard.
