Just curious to see how similar your personal top 10 is with the one on ProgArchives. Multiple voting allowed, so vote for all the albums.

My top 10 would be:

1. Genesis - Trespass
2. Supertramp - Crime Of The Century
3. Genesis - Foxtrot
4. Procol Harum - Shine On Brightly
5. Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
6. Pavlov's Dog - Pampered Menial
7. Genesis - Selling England By The Pound
8. VDGG - Pawn Hearts
9. Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
10. Yes - Close To The Edge

So 4 in there - looking forward to yours! Smile

im familiar with all of these except for Godbluff.... sry. anyway, here's my top 10 as of late:

1. The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. Yes - Close to the Edge
3. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
4. The Beatles - Abbey Road
5. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
6. The Who - Who's Next
7. Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy
8. Rush - 2112
9. King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
10. Genesis - A Trick of the Tail

honorable mentions to everything else except for the last choice and some of Red, but ill probably be a fan of it later on as well as King Crimson themselves lol

REMINDER: this could change DRASTICALLY (except for the top 3) some other day.

My 'top ten' changes daily, so I guess I can't vote.

Today it would look something like this:

Floyd - Pompeii
SBB - Karlstad
Caravan - In the Land of Grey and Pink
Amon Düül ll - Wolf City
Can - Tago Mago
COS - Viva Boma
Popol Vuh - In den Gärten Pharaohs
Area - Crac!
Premiata Forneria Marconi - L'Isola di Niente
Setna - Guérison ( this was a long time coming, mostly down to me forgetting I had it, but wow has it ever transformed! This is THE album that will get the average prog fan to listen to Zeuhl! Or it should be, I don't see why this wouldn't appeal to a wider crowd than it seems to be reaching. Think melodic jazz rock with interchanging rhythmic female scat singing and these beautiful ethereal bursts coupled together with the most wavy and smooth rhythm section I have laid my ears on in later times. Add to that some almost Floydian guitar moments that quite simply sends shivers down my spine.)

^ Nice list David. My top-10 is buried deep in the AZ somewhere, I doubt it's changed much - I recall picking the English versions of PFM (or was it Le Orme) over the original Italian lyrics simply because I happen to like them slightly more.

You can vote today but not tomorrow.

Yesterday Wolf City would have been on mine - and today Shamal is well up the top ten  ('Prog Pickers' ;)

Thanks. I have actually never heard the English version to be perfectly honest with you. I kinda like being kept in the "dark" in terms of lyrical content whenever I listen to my RPI. The vocals become an instrument and seems to be able to mean the world and everything outside of it.
