  1. Suppers Ready- Genesis
  2. Harvest Of Souls-IQ
  3. The Great Nothing- Spocks Beard
  4. The Odyssey- Symphony X
  5. Octavarium & Dogs- Dream Theater & Pink Floyd, these two are equal

BTW Cygnus, Pigs is only 11 minutes, these songs are supposed to be over 15.

Ive noticed that suppers ready is in almost everyones list, far more than CttE, yet CttE is killing Suppers Ready in the vs poll between them, strange

Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

1. CttE - Yes

2. Nine Feet Underground - Caravan

3. Awaken - Yes

4. Thick as a Brick (part one) - Jethro Tull

5. Hemispheres - Rush
