I have a favourite band in almost every one of these, but it seems my favourite bands are all in the "Eclectic Prog" category so that gets my vote with "Symphonic Prog" coming in 2nd.
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

I give heavy prog the slight edge over symphonic prog.

Would be interesting if there were a simple view that showed the number of bands, albums and reviews per genre.

Take the complete opposite of this post and you'll have my sentiments.

Eclectic
RPI
Symphonic
Psychedelic/Space Rock
Heavy Prog
Crossover
...

However, I prefer some bands rather than an specific Sub-genre.

Its a shame the poll got ruined. Anyhow it seems my favorite bands are in eclectic, symphonic and heavy sub genres. I have also lot of love for rpi, crossover and neo and finally really like some bands from space, canterbury, folk and metal. I'm still struggling to find something pleasent for my tastes in the rest of the genres, with the special exception of Tool which i love

I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

 I wonder why we can't do "Prog-Related" searches to find out the highest-rated "Prog-Related" albums? I wish this option were available.

Not counting non-styles like "eclectic" (GG, VdGG and the first 3 KC albums are primarily symphonic). RPI is very distinct but it's a subgenre of symph:

Symphonic
Canterbury
Electronic
Folk
Avant
Neo
Space
Metal

I considered avant above folk because there's more of it, but my favs of folk are so good. Same thing to a far lesser degree with space v. metal. I can't stand fusion anymore for the absolute most part, but still love RTF.

What's the deal with "I Hate Krautrock"? I far from hate it but when I get the hankering it only lasts about one song.

OP was mad that Krautrock was beating his beloved symph prog so, being childish and a sore loser, he edited the poll to read "I Hate Krautrock"

Ironically I think that is what put kraut in the lead this far into it. Suddenly you get people from both perspectives voting it after interpreting it differently.
