Genesis / Steve Hackett would be my biggest collection. Even though I have non-Hackett Genesis (up to Duke+Archives), the guitar is a lot of what I listen to on these albums.

I just counted 92 Zappa CDs, though double CD sets were counted as two.  Total distinct titles probably number around 70-80.  I think that's way too many.

Second place was pretty much a tie between Magma (23) and Residents (24), again counting each double set as two.

I also didn't count CDR copies, mp3 purchases, or unofficial live recordings.  These are all CDs I bought or stole at gunpoint.

What's all the 'songs' stuff?  If a Klaus Schulze fan only has three songs but they're all over 70 minutes each, is that more than owning the first five Jethro Tull albums, which would be a shorter total of minutes? 
We're not interested in songs, we're interested in albums.  Show me a Prog fan who says he doesn't like albums and I'll show you a liar.

1) Dream Theater (11 studio + 3 EPs/demo + 5 live/compilation + 10 bootleg + 2 special edition) = 31 total
2) Rush (19 studio albums) = 19 total
3) Pink Floyd (11 studio albums) = 11 total
3) Yes (11 studio albums) = 11 total
5) King Crimson (9 studio albums) = 9 total
6) Muse (6 studio + 2 live) = 8 total

I've got fewer than five albums by everyone else (or they aren't prog). I haven't had much money lately to expand my collection, but it's a work in progress. I still check out the record store a couple times a month. Smile

Not necessarily so. I know a lot of people who dig prog, but continue to flip through tracks and artists like some kind erratic puppy kennel djs. Arguments start about who's turn to choose tune it is next. If I finally get them to listen to an album in it's entirety - chances are we won't get more than two or three tracks in, and suddenly some guy goes whoops and we're somewhere completely different sonically.
Attention span deficit perhaps?

Going by individual artist, it has to be Steven Wilson, Roine Stolt or Mike Portnoy for me: 

Wilson (all PT, all Blackfield, all solo, some No-Man, the Opeth albums he appeared on, Storm Corrosion, etc.) 
Stolt (all TFK, Kaipa, The Tangent, solo, Transatlantic, etc.)
Portnoy (all DT except the last one, most Neal Morse solo albums, Transatlantic, LTE and Flying Colors)

As of now, Yes. Their first seven albums, 1968-1974. Lame, I know.
