These are the lowest rated studio albums by the 'big six' of prog on PA. I don't agree with all these albums being the 'worst' of each but those are your options.

Tough choice between King Crimson and Pink Floyd, but I enjoy Beat slightly more.

Hard choice. There are three I really like. Invisible Tough, Open Your Eyes and Momentary lapse.

I like half of Beat.  OYE is horrible.  ELPs effort is worse. I haven't heard the Tull album and I like most of the Genesis and PF albums.  PF by a little bit because Anything She Does is the worst song the G men released.  And yes, I have heard Whodunnit.

invisible touch, momentary lapse and beat are not bad albums

I think I'm one of PA's few "Under Wraps" fans.  It's one of the few Tull albums I like to listen to.

I try to make the case here, if anyone cares

Beat - easily.  What's the matter with things like 'Heartbeat', 'Requiem' or 'Neurotica' ???  Great stuff !

I was hoping Love Beach would have been here but I can see why not now.
I did vote for ELP again.
