Just a straightforward "What are your top 10 favourite Prog rock albums. Try not to include like over 3 albums by one band and don't try to pick a purposely obscure album, just your straight out top 10

My personal favourites are:

1. Trespass - Genesis
2. In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson
3. Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd
4. Foxtrot - Genesis
5. Shine On Brightly - Procol Harum
6. Crime Of The Century - Supertramp
7. Close To The Edge - Yes
8. A Farewell To Kings - Rush
9. Red - King Crimson
10. In The Land Of Grey And Pink - Caravan

I'm too lazy to do one of these right now, so I'll just say a mix of Neelus' and HolyMoly's lists will do just fine(although they lack a bit of RPITongue).
