Tough one,

1: Song For America
2: Apercu
3: Journey From Mariabronn

The Wall also has to be up there for me

I would say that's the same for me. I also like miracles out of nowhere, magnum opus(what a killer track)and a few songs from monolith and point of know return.

The Wall. Beautiful song.
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

The Pinnacle's my personal favorite, followed by Song for America and Lightning's Hand. Also, an honorable mention to The Spider for being one of the most badass short instrumentals ever
Take me down, to the underground
Won't you take me down, to the underground
Why of why, there is no light
And if I can't sleep, can you hold my life

'On The Other Side' from Monolith.  That opening passage really grabs me.

People of the South Wind gets my vote and most things off Monolith.
I dig the Native American vibe and the album art. I guess Monolith was the first Kansas album that I gave a serious listen back in the day (along with Audio-Visions and Seeds of Change).

Relistening to Point of Know Return, this album got me hooked on prog with leftoverture and I think years later I like it even more!
