Pat Metheny takes it for me this time, with Ant's PP&P VII coming in second. I also think that Tull's Crest of a Knave and Rush's Hold Your Fire are fine albums. Clutching at Straws is my least favorite Fish-era Marillion release.

Crest of a Knave. A return to form, and their best post '70's studio album, along with Roots to Branches (not counting The Christmas Album), IMO.

Honourable mentions to Hold Your Fire, Clutching at Straws and Killing Technology.

Very true.  I think most people assume the category was "heavy metal" simply because they beat Metallica Wink

The flute is a heavy metal instrument!

i don't even think it's hard rock, except perhaps the utterly gruesome Steel Monkey.

...the rest.
 
Even I will admit that 1987 had some slim pickings for prog. One of the best and most proggy songs of the year came from an unlikely source:

Yes' Big Generator and Rush's Hold Your Fire is more 'meh' to me, even though i haven't listened to both albums in their entirety yet. However, they are both my favorites from this weird, too poppy year, at #3 and #2, respectively. The #1 album from this year and the one that gets my vote, though, goes to Pink Floyd's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" because that is the only album that's proggy in ways by one of the bands who invented this genre to begin with, so yeah.

Clutching at Straws by a long shot, and then Scream Bloody Gore, Hold Your Fire, and A Momentary Lapse of Reason

I bought a copy of Big Generator for collector's purposes, but still haven't bothered to listen to it.

Imho this is THE best album from 1987:
 
 
I was very surprised when I noticed that the CLOUD ABOUT MERCURY is not on the list of 1987 PA ranked albums, as the masterpiece of progressive & space fusion as well.
So I voted for IQ's, because of this very song - piano / vocal version actually, what is simply amazing..

I like the album, but vote here for CaS.
I had to do a double take that you were voting for Calling All Stations.  LOL 

I totally did the same thing LOL
