They were my first favorite band, so I'm biased towards them.  I don't adore them, but I still like them a lot.

You didn't do one for the adjective I usually apply: quaint.  But I was the first vote for good.  I've got everything from Days through and including Sojourn.

Go for option #5. Sometimes they are too sweet for my taste, but In Search of the Lost Chord is a good album.

Voted for that too. Days of Future past is a good project, but I couldn't care that much about other albums of the band.

Probably the first prog band. I'm not very into them. I like what i have heard of them but they are not at my top.

I just love them from days of future to seventh sojourn and i still listen to those unforgetable albums looking at beautiful phil travers covers, unfortunaly, it seems they were not that great on stage

I just had to vote: One of the greatest bands of all time, I don't listen to them that often, but when I do, I always enjoy it. And there is not many bands that sing songs about the epic Timothy Leary

I'm probably one of the few people who actually thinks The Present is a good LP.

I'll have to review it soonBig smile

^ There are others. Handshake Look forward to that one.
 
Second option for me, not that I'm biased or anything.

One of the Greatest bands without doubt - with emphasis on their initial seven albums which I lump in a class by themselves.

DotFP and ISotLC are fundamentally important in prog's development, but I had little interest in their output beyond that.

They have some good songs, but overall don't find them that interesting.
