This song occured me too. But I donīt mean itīs Prog in strict criteria. Itīs excellent of course nevertheless the rhythm is quite level-toned.

I voted Other for Achilles Last Stand.  Very surprised it wasn't on the list...
 
In The Light would be my 2nd choice.

I apologize to all Achilles Last Standīs fans. If I thinking back about it, this one is in fact Prog Metal piece, 4 years before first Iron Maiden and 13 years before first Dream Theater...
 
But I cannot add this song additionally, however.

No Quarter for me and Achilles second, with Stairway third.

 

Very good list, apart from forgetting Achilles

 

However, Since I've been, Tea For One and Nobody's Fault are nothing prog, IMHO

 

the first two are killer blues, and the third is pure Rock'n Roll

Really don't mind if you sit this one out.

"Stairway to Heaven", but I should have checked some of the songs that I still haven't listened.

But, anyway, I could hardly vote for "Kashmir", because of its repetitive and obsesional structures, or "Dazed and Confused" which I remember as being rather usual in its writing (verse-verse-chorus-verse or do I have a wrong memory of this song?)

Depending on which live version you watch, No Quarter or Kashmir could win the poll. However, as it is on record, they're not really very "progressive" at all.
 
I voted for Achilles as well, but it was hard not to vote for The Rain Song, which is such a spectacular work, one of Zeppelin's very very best.

No Quarter always sounds very progressive to me (But then again, what does that mean?)

The Rain Song for me, even with Achilles being left off.
