I think Hybris by Anglagard is the ultimate Prog Masterpiece of all times

I can't point to a single thing on CTTE that I would describe as a flaw, and it's definitely more polished than Tales. If CTTE had been Yes' last album (which heaven forbid because then I would have to do without Relayer, TFTO and GFTO, not to mention many songs since that I love), I would have no hesitation calling it a masterpiece. I just think Tales went even further, in ambition and execution, although it does have issues.
 
Something can be perfect without being a masterpiece and something can be a masterpiece without being perfect.  The two categories are not interchangeable.

For me, an album like Foxtrot is a genuine masterpiece, but is not perfect. (I don't adore Can-Utility as much as I think I should). Tales is another one, but isn't really perfect (middle of Revealing)

Same.
 
that's the one. although I will admit that CTTE is a more "perfect" album.  I think this is the genuine masterpiece, though, for all its flaws.

I believe that there is a LOT of masterpieces, essential albums that everyone should listen because of their importance, etc.

So, we have to admit that this choise (only one) is strictly personal, even if it comes with a big rationalization...

Yeah, boring choice, but Close To The Edge is it. Thick comes next, followed by Faust's s/t and Foxtrot

it should be hard question...  #1 prog masterpiece... jesus christ there have been so many great prog albums. so many perfect or near perfect albums.

However still after all these years...  it really isn't that hard and my vote would still be for this. This album more than any other is the one that my non-prog loving friends ADORE and want to hear more of.. yet that is the genius of it. You will never find another masterpiece that captures what this album did.

Last minute switch from Scenes from a Memory to Snow (Argh Bridge Across Forever is now tempting me). No, Snow.

Currently, I'm obsessing over Magenta's The Twenty-Seven Club. Just perfect. Every note, every progression, every word from Christina. Never-ending bliss for 65 minutes......

Would have to dark side of the moon, but my vote for the most emotional prog masterpiece is Sylvan's posthumous silence.
