The post Riverside poll. 3 or more albums....

Part 3 of "Bands [with] 3 or more [studio] albums in the sub-genre top-10s". Here is a link to the first posted topic with poll: CLICK HERE for first poll
And here is a link to part two: CLICK HERE for second poll

I decided to go through Prog Archives top ten charts looking at each Prog sub-genre (category) to see how many categories have three of more studio albums by the same band in the top 10 of its sub-genre's chart, and I made a list that came to 24 bands with over 80 albums in total that fit the criteria.

I have included the ranking (the number to the left of the band-name and album) for the genre charts in the master list below. Note: Since I have taken this off the charts and this site does not tag individual albums, we will find an album like Kind of Blue, or specifically Kind of Blue in the master list, which is not JRF but still fits per my methodology. Some others I would categorise differently. I just ask that people vote for a favourite album no matter how well they think it represents the category.

Here is the master list:

Canterbury Scene:

(1) Caravan - In the Land of Grey and Pink (1971)

Please vote for a favoured album even if more than one stand out. Hard choice for me, as I appreciate music from all of these albums this time. Love BdMS, and many others, but I probably will in the end go with Meddle or On Land and in the Sea. On Land and in the Seamus, anyone?

BIG number of great albums here and not enough votes yet that just voting for the one with smallest number will do. Not sure how many potential Cardiacs voters are around here, but also A Little Man... should not remain without votes.

Unfortunately, I neglected to add The Yes Album to the poll, which is the tenth highest ranked album in the Symphonic prog chart at PA. Oh well, one can always write the vote in if that is the choice (I pay more attention to the responses than the actual poll).

I could've put my Top 3 in that same order too. I've noticed how similar our tastes in music are, especially around this time of year when it's mostly autumn. Wink

This one is a little harder than the previous. Selling England by the Pound and Close to the Edge are very close, followed not that far by Animals and One Size Fits All.

WTF! Close to the Edge only has two votes!? I guess I'll have to make the universe right again and vote for it.
 

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.
