For me, it's personal. I was 14 when I went to my first gig, which was Genesis with Peter Gabriel on vocals. It changed my life permanently. So for me it has to be Return of the Giant Hogweed. I saw Steve Hackett perform it recently, and it still brings me out in goosebumps. Looking back over the adventures/misadventures I've had throughout the decades since, I don't know whether to curse Peter Gabriel or bless him!!!

The Gates of Delirium - Yes
Karn Evil 9 - ELP
Supper's Ready - Genesis

the 3 songs that instantly come to my mind when someone says "prog".
King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Rush, Jethro Tull, Camel, Yes, Van der Graaf Generator, ELP, Gentle Giant, Caravan, Dream Theatre

I would add "Close to the Edge" to that list and maybe also "Thick as a Brick" but those are all good examples.

I thought since the original poster didn't really specify a certain number, I'd stick with my most obvious 3 choices. I definitely would have added Close to the Edge and A Passion Play to that list. I'm one of those guys who likes APP more than TaaB, and it really is a tad proggier than Brick so Smile

I discovered Banco’s “Darwin!” in 1983, and the opening track L’Evoluzione just bowled me over. This is IT, THIS is what prog is all about! was my immediate reaction.
Silly human race! Yes is for everybody!
