Just One - not 2 or 3 or a dozen .... ONE CHOICE!
no live albums just studio releases please. 
 
I know that's brutal but let's see what we get here as a list...
 
Your ultimate prog masterpiece!
 
 
Mine?
 
 
The Human Equation by Ayreon. - its the first that springs into my head.

Why? I never get sick of it and it intro'd me to full blown conceptual masterpieces.

it only took me 2 seconds to decide-

Illusions On A Double Dimple by Triumvirat

this album will always remain  a  bench mark for me, and the greatest prog album of all time!

For me Jacob's Ladder and Natural Science are the epitome of the genre.

Yeah, naked butts are a sure sign of Prog quality.  Interesting that this thread is still short and we already have two naked guy's butts on it and one with a guy whose ass is on fire. LOL

This is my very young son's favourite music from my collection (asks me to play it a lot):

I'm sure this changes for most of us all the time, but based on my album playing rotation the last couple years I'll call out this one:

“If loving someone is putting them in a straitjacket and kicking them down a flight of stairs, then yes, I have loved a few people.”
