There is an inverted poll "Best Worst Album" by Xonty with Van der Graaf Generator instead ELP, because they just haven't any album in PA Top 10.

In The Court>Selling England>Wish You Were Here>Thick As A Brick>Godbluff>>>>>Close To The Edge.

A couple of years ago I would have said they're all as overrated as each other, but over time they've all grown to my liking, and I definitely see why they're considered the best. All, that is, except for Close to the Edge. It's still a massive w**kfest to me and barely scrapes a 5/10. Maybe I'll enjoy it eventually, but after a good 6 or 7 listens I still don't like it.

Well, ELP debut is on #77, that's unworthy. Corrected to Top 10.

I don't get this poll. Should I just vote for the album I like the least, the least favourite? Cause neither of them is bad at all.

This is tough for me. Godbluff is my second favorite album ever, but I like different albums by the other groups significantly more, and can't comfortably give any of them full 5* ratings in my book. I'll have to think on it, but I'm probably gonna go with Thick as a Brick in the end. Tull's my least favorite of the lot.

In the Court of the Crimson King: the only album in this list that I would not give a 5-star rating.

Thick as a Brick is one of the most boring albums ever, for me. That's my choice.
