I would vote for Pink Floyd, but Animals keeps me from doing so, so........

VDGG it is then. Genesis would be second though.

It would be Ayreon, Bacamarte and Rush for me.
 
However, were I to actually make one of those lists, a handful more would probably be left off too.

Ayreon for his incredible self absortion, and the fact that he's not afreid to show it off.

Well, King Crimson isn't in my top 100 either, but there are other far easier choices.


King Crimson is one of my faves off this list, and Larks' Tongues in Aspic would make my top hundred, but I know quite a few people here don't care for the band. The band can be a little too "heavy" for me if I'm not in the mood -- I'm more of a classical, jazz, and folk guy at heart than a rocker.  Different, since this is a poll of explicit subjectivity, but it would be a rare person who didn't think that King Crimson deserved to be on the list.  It's a neat idea for a poll, but I'd like a second one about bands that people feel don't deserve to be represented in the top fifty (or, I guess it's been done).  I was thinking too that there might be some revenge votes against King Crimson for winning a Prog tournament before.  Incidentally, during the King Crimson vs. Pink FLoyd round, Pink FLoyd came close to toppling King Crimson: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=47019  That's partially what put the idea my mind to respond that way to crimhead's (and the fact that he's crimhead) Pink Floyd comment.

It's between King Crimson, Pain of Salvation, Harmonium, Dream Theater, Van Der Graaf and Zappa for me.

None of them have done an album which really deserves to be in the top 100 as far as I am concerned. All the rest thoroughly deserve their status.

If pushed, I'd go for VDGG. They were generally considered very mediocre in the 70s (except in Italy, I gather) and not much has changed for me.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

1. Supertramp (I think Crime of the Century was the only supposedly good album I've made the D: face at)
2. Riverside (I actuallylike all of their albums, but I doubt they're top 100 material)
3. Ayreon (re: Riverside)
4. Bacamarte (Depois is good, but I don't think it's that good. Maybe at the very end of the top 100...)
5. Gentle Giant (the band is one big "meh" from me. Octopus is listenable and pretty good, but it wouldn't make it into my top 100)

Ayreon, followed by PT, followed by Harmonium and lastly Bacamarte.  I actually love Depois Do Fim but I can safely say I love a 100 other prog albums at least much more.  I am not too convinced about Anglagard or Riverside either, I like a lot of Riverside's stuff but again, not top 100 for me. I wanted to mention Camel too LOL but Mirage makes the cut. Embarrassed

On purely personal tastes, Zappa. I never ever got him, and still don't after all these years.

Can't believe that Marillion are topping this poll?Cry

Pain of Salvation is the greatest pain. Dead  After that Opeth, then Riverside.  All the others are okay by me, even though not all would be in my top 100.

Marillon. So far from what I've heard, it captures all the bad qualities of 'prog'... boring, over dramatic, unnecessary use of odd time signatures, unoriginal, 80s production, glossy tone, facepaint

Hogarth has never used facepaint. Fish stopped using it in Misplaced Childhood.

From the list,it's AYREON by far for me...I don't like them at all and find them very boring...
Didn't even think to vote for any of the classic prog bands (for example I'm not that much into VAN DERR GRAAF GENERATOR) ,for the reason that they all helped more or less to the building of our favorite music...
From the metal bands I find OPETH to be quiet good,early DREAM THEATER are superb and PAIN OF SALVATION have a very unique style.
MARILLION are my favorite band,so no vote for them...
 
if it wasn't for AYREON,it would be definitely FRANK ZAPPA...I admit that I can't listen to any of his works with much interest...though he has also dropped his personal sign to progressive rock.

For me, it would be Opeth. It's because the vocals are unlistenable and the one album without them is good, but not good enough.
butts, lol
