Mmmmm.

- I love A Momentary Lapse of Reason;
- Foxtrot is my least favorite Genesis album (with PG or SH);
- I prefer Fish Out of Water to any other Yes-related album;
- I really dislike In Absentia;
- I like Merci.

Not sure that's so strange...Wink...the only unusual like from the 60's/70's Crimson albums is "Earthbound"...(though I must say the Earthbound version of Schizoid Man is one of my favorites, it's all the Boz scat-singing and pointless Mel Collins soloing on Peoria and Earthbound I can't stand).
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

I think Chocolate Kings is a great album.  I love the lyrics to "From Under"...

I prefer most KC albums to Court.
Hold Your Fire is one of my favorite Rush albums.

SMPTe might be considered the worst Transatlantic, but All of the Above eliminates that possibility. The Whirlwind is clearly the weakest. ? is the worst solo Neal Morse. His usual melodicity is replaced by metal riffage (luckily these two things coexisted pretty well in Sola Scriptura).

MDK is totally obnoxious, and I can't fathom why anyone would disagree with that. Magma has always been gimmicky, but that aspect of the band reaches it's peak there. Easily one of their worst albums. Their recent albums have been very good though (not that this view is unpopular).

I know a guy who considers Thrakattak the greatest Crimson.

It's a complete sell-out. Apart from that it's alright. (Geez, I've said that kind of thing over and over again about GfaD haven't I?) LOL

Salad Days is the lowest rated Cheer-Accident album here. It happens to be my favourite, or tied with one or two others. (Damn, I think I've said that a few times before too) 

I much prefer Danger Money over U.K

I really like 90125 even though it's not my favorite. I think Moving Pictures is sorta weak however, even though it's still a great album.

I prefer Post Gabriel era Genesis (especially up to 1980). Never cared for Trespass and Nursery Cryme and now find SEBPT and TLLDOB a bit boring to be honest. There's still Foxtrot though thankfully.

I don't much like anything Tangerine Dream did pre Ricochet (1975) but like a lot of albums they'me made in the last ten years. Purgatorio is probably my favourite.

Seasons End is my favourite Marillion album

I find Dark Side of The Moon a bit boring

I rate Par Lindh Project as the best Symph prog band post seventies and why Veni Vidi Vici isn't regarded alongside Close To The Edge and Brain Salad Surgery as one of the best symph prog albums ever made constantly baffling.

I'm not a huge fan of Brain Salad Surgery. I don't hate it at all, but I don't really understand all the love for it.

- I can't stand "Wish You Were Here"
- "Acquiring the Taste" is one of my least favorite Gentle Giant albums
- "Beat" is one of my favorite KC albums
- "Grace Under Pressure" is my favorite Rush album
- I find "MDK" to be one of Magma's least enjoyable works
- My favorite Opeth album  is "Watershed"
- I don't think Rainbow's "Rising" is that great, I much prefer their debut
- Any Neo-prog that is highly rated... I probably don't like itLOL

  • I prefer Marillion's Holidays in Eden above Clutching at Straws and Script for a Jester's Tear.

  • 90125 is my favourite Yes album outside their classic area while I rank Tales from Topographic Oceans only just above Tormato.

  • Hold Your Fire is imho the best Rush album between Signals and Clockwork Angels.

  • Islands and In the Wake of Poseidon are my favourite King Crimson albums while I find Discipline just below average.

  • Best Kept Secret with its current average rating of 2.41 is my second favourite Alquin album.

  • Fish's album Suits is imho almost equally underrated.

I like A Momentary Lapse of Reason better than All other Pink Floyd albums except The Wall and Darkside.

I Like Duke better than Selling England by the pound.

Ummmm? Yeah, Iron Maiden's x factor I like better than No Prayer for the dying and Killers
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

Tubular Bells is my 12th or so favourite Mike Oldfield album (some albums I rank well over it are TB II&III, Platinum, Five Miles Out and Guitars)

My favourite Jean Michel Jarre album is Oxygene 7-13, which I absolutely love.

Perelandra is one of my favourites from Glass Hammer.
