I wonder when you gave up on your prog heroes (in terms of autobuy - rushing to buy albums on release)?  You may have to be of a 'certain age'.  Here is my list from the big six:

ELP - Works Vol. 1
Genesis - Duke
Jethro Tull - A
King Crimson - Beat
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Yes - Union

For Van der Graaf Generator, it hasn't stopped.
 
For Black Sabbath, it stopped after "Never Say Die!". A few years ago, I listened to "Heaven And Hell", but decided it sounded too much like Rainbow for me to consider it a Black Sabbath album.
 
 
No, I know how to behave in the restaurant now, I don't tear at the meat with my hands. If I've become a man of the world somehow, that's not necessarily to say I'm a worldly man.

Of the Big 6

King Crimson - still autobuy if they ever release a new studio album
Pink Floyd - TFC was the last autobuy
None of the others were ever autobuy

I have plenty of autobuy bands outside the Big 6, just a few

Nik Bartsch Ronin
The Comet Is Coming
Present
Alec K Redfearn & The Eyesores
Vezhlivy Otkaz
Thinking Plague

I know, right!

My AKR&E Gnosis ratings:-

Sister Death - 15
The Opposite - 13
The Blind Spot - 12
The Quiet Room - 11

I've also seen them live something like 5 or 6 times.

I think the last album I autobought was Roll the Bones, the second disappointing album in succession by Rush.

The only band I will continue to automatically buy forever is Tull.   Of course that may be because they're the only prog band that is still theoretically 'together'.

Not old enough to say that I bought all the classic albums on autobuy, since I started buying albums in autumn 74


ELP - Tarkus
Genesis - And Then There Were Three
Jethro Tull - Mistrel
King Crimson - Discipline
Pink Floyd - I suppose I never did, since I bought the cruddy Permanent Lapse of Reasons the day it was released. Ditto for TDB and tghe Wright tribute
Yes - Tormato

Rush - Moving pictures (though I never owned the debut and Caress)

The only three band with more than one or two albums that I have everything ever release is Out Of Focus (6 albums, but three posthumous) and Harmonium and Maneige

GoGo Penguins is another one, but unless something changes drastically, their next will not be autobuy.

let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword
