Geenie comes out of your beer bottle and she says  "Master, make  a wish and have ALL prog albums (from all countries) from your pick will be granted to you"

A very strange dating. On what have you had your basis on?

For me, more logical dating would be:
1967 1969 (proto-prog) The Doors, Deep Purple
1969 1973 (early classics) early King Crimson, Genesis, Yes
1974 1977 (late classics) Wetton-era King Crimson, early Queen, early Rush
1977 1979 (middle/transitional period) start of minimalist era
1980 late 80's (new wave era art rock) Peter Gabriel, 80's King Crimson, neo-prog & Marillion, synth-era Rush
1990's nowadays (post-progressive) Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Radiohead, Dream Theater
This night wounds time.

After that 3rd period because of neo prog.

I think it's rather obvious that the best years were the first ones (if we talk about "strictly" prog rock, not crossover, or prog-related or math-rock...).

But why a prog poll is in general music discussion section ?
