This may have been done before but even if it was the choices would be different. These are the current highest rated albums in each sub-genre of PA. Due to popularity, two of the choices might not get any votes while 3 or 4 of them will be fighting for the top spot. However, the results might be surprising.

"Thick as a Brick" just barely over "In the Court of the Crimson King" with "Per Un Amico" a close 3rd.

4. Tangerine Dream - Rubycon
5. Marillion - Misplaced Childhood
6. King Crimson - In the Court of
7. Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire
8. Supertramp - Crime
9. Dream Theater Images & Words
10.  Tool - Lateralus

Hard to compare these.. But I'd say TaaB, Rubycon and CttE in that order.

Opeth's Still Life by a margin I hope the PA community at large doesn't find too surprising. I honestly believe it deserves such accolades. Plus I find most of the "highest rated" picks to be wildly overrated.

I don't like the list. These are the top albums? Wow. I almost voted for ITCOCK but went for Thick as a Brick instead. I don't see how Thick as a Brick tops Aqualung, though.

Ha! I guess not being able to put the whole title in there screwed me up.

Good question! The only one I missed for some reason.

Is there any way to edit a poll, so I can fix my two fluck ups?

Wyatt, Cardiacs, Tangerine Dream and Yes in the same poll? K.A is not my favorite Magma and I prefer Aqualung to Thick As A Brick. By coincidence Rubycon is the album I've listened to more recently (yesterday morning) so it gets my vote.
