Just a quick question, what's your favourite lowest PA rated album by the big 6 prog rock bands? Personally, mine is Invisible Touch, followed by Beat and Open Your Eyes Smile Thoughts?

Hmmm...I only own the first 2 but have heard all of them......I'll go with Floyd since there are several songs on there I do like.

Like the first three--especially Beat--but also Invisible Touch and Floyd ---not into bottom 3--as a Yes fanatic don't consider OYE a Yes album---

AMLoR, closely followed by Beat and Invisible Touch. None are really bad IMO, just now up to what we expect from theses great acts.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

King Crimson beats out the others here.

i find A Momentary Lapse of Reason to be a much more satisfying album than u would expect, however, it is one of my least favorite PF albums, but not like TFC or the soundtracks. Also, i find very funny that people think that In the Hot Seat is worse than Love Beach (if u know what i mean)! On another note, just in general, what album has the lowest rating on this site (including all the bands old and new on here and excluding non-reviewed or few-reviewed ones)?

Invisible Touch, though not one of my favorite albums, is a solid album.

Smile Well you have to consider it a Yes album, because it was!!! Fanatic or notTongue

I am surprised Beat is so low in ratings, great 80's Crimson

AMLOR got my vote

"On The Turning Away" is one of my favourite Floyd songs, even though that album is rather average, I prefer it to a lot of their stuff, so that gets my vote. Although to be honest, I haven't really heard the others that much.

AMLOR shouldn't share a list with so much crap.

I really like A Momentary Lapse - not their best, but good.

The rest are pretty awful.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.
