^ the term "least favorite" means I still like that album, at least for me. 

If you are asking about albums I dislike, that's a different story.

I just thought "least favourite album" sounded more positive than "worst album", but yes, least favourite means the 10 albums you dislike the most by 10 of your favourite artists. Smile

so 10 favorite prog artists, any genre right? That will take a while. LOL
Some of them have not released something I dislike. This is going to be hard and I am complicating things. LOL

Imagine hating discipline Cry Matte Kudasai and Frame By Frame are top shelf Crim songs over here.

I can't think of any albums I particularly hate from any artists I like. I guess Kansas really fell off as they head into the 80s, not much a fan of Wake Of Poseidon either

80s Crimson is my least favorite KC, but I can' say I dislike it. 

I like 80s Kansas, even Drastic Measures. I do understand why some dislike it, true. Smile

Yeah I love Discipline as well. The Dreaming also happens to be one of my fave Kate albums...so the usual applies: there really is no accounting for personal taste.
Conversely there are a lot of Paulís favourites that I donít particularly care for.
Tastebuds eh..

But sure Iíll play:
Pink Floyd - The Final Cut
Genesis - Calling All Stations
Guru Guru - UFO

It took me a whole week to come up with my bottom 10 list, so there's plenty of time. Smile
 
I can name dozens of well-known prog artists who've never released an album I dislike, including:- The Alan Parsons Project; Jon Anderson; Barclay James Harvest; Camel; Caravan; Dead Can Dance; Deep Purple; ELO; ELP; The Enid; Genesis; David Gilmour; Annie Haslam; If; Jade Warrior;  Led Zeppelin; Jon Lord; Man; The Moody Blues;  Nektar; Sally Oldfield; Pink Floyd;  Procol Harum; Rare Bird; Traffic; Uriah Heep; Roger Waters; & Yes, to name just a few.

Aw, I love Discipline too and I think Missing Pieces and Rainbow Dome Musick are pretty fantastic as well.

anyway, I second Calling All Stations and would further like to mention Frank Zappa's Thing-Fish and ELP's Black Moon (as well as To The Power Of Three if one considers that a part of their discography)

Black Moon  just happens to be one of my favourite ELP albums. Smile

Tough for me as I generally don't get or keep albums I don't like so I've not listened to them enough to give an accurate rating. The only really obvious one is

Pink Floyd - The Final Cut

Had that for a few years and couldn't get along with it at all.

These others are my lowest rated amongst artists I generally love, they are either a departure from the style I like or an album I bought before giving up on a band

Dave Gilmour - Rattle That Lock
Finnegans Wake - The Bird And The Sky Above
The Decemberists - What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World
Shub-Niggurath - C'Etaient de Tres Grands Vents
Oldfield, Mike - Voyager
King Crimson - THRaKaTTaK
Comus - To Keep From Crying
Aranis - Smells Like Aranis

The Final Cut is Pete Pardo's least favourite Pink Floyd album too, although I prefer it to Ummagumma and The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Smile

Ummagumma is amongst my favorite Floyd albums, only topped by WYWH and Animals. Piper is a Syd album really but a classic of its time.

Perhaps oddly, I completely agree with your description of Lapse as flaccid, but it is that flaccidness that makes me love it as much as I do. Itís far closer to be being a favourite Floyd album than least favourite for me. Sometimes, itís nice to play with something flaccid.

Eloy - Ra (spectacularly bad album by a good band that has a stellar bass player and a bunch of good drummers - and this one features neither)
Art Zoyd - Pure Noise (I don't mind that they did this... I actually like them for the balls it takes... I like the whole idea of this album, except that I don't like to listen to it)
Talk Talk - The Party's Over (similar thing as with Pure Noise - I'm fine with them having done this; I like the fact that they started off with this because it gave them much space to improve from album to album... actually it has two or three OK to good songs, but still, I hardly ever feel that I should listen to this again)
King Crimson - Earthbound (incredibly some seem to like the rough and "earthly" sound of this, but I find the sound and mix so off-putting, I can't enjoy anythijg on it)
Novalis - Bumerang (I have no problems with bands changing their style and one could argue that it was clear for some time where Novalis was heading... but this is just unbelievably lame and bloodless... I saw them touring this album and live they were still good by the way)
Robert Wyatt - Mid-Eighties (This seems to include the whole Old Rottenhat album... this is a very long collection that has one song - Gharbzedegi - that I really love, and lots of good lyrics over generally very lazy minimalist electronic arrangements... he has done so much better elsewhere)
Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Masque (I don't remember a thing from this album, and Manfred is otherwise very good at making things stick in my inner ear... I even once gave it a spin to check and had forgotten all of it by the next day)
Steve Hackett - Cured (I thought about nominating Invisible Touch, but I'm not that much of a Genesis fan despite digging most of the Peter Gabriel phase. I admire Steve Hackett and his discography displays a good variety fair enough, but it's a bit hit and miss and this one is the biggest miss I'd say. You've got to give me something to get my teeth in Mr Hackett!)
Pink Floyd - Momentary Lapse of Reason (it's bearable which is probably the best to say about it)
Jethro Tull - Too Old To Rock'n Roll Too Young To Die (Yes I do like this less than Under Wraps... actually there are a number I like less than Under Wraps)

I love Dave Gilmour's Rattle That Lock. That's a 5-star album for me. Thumbs Up
 
I also like Mike Oldfield's 4-star Voyager album.
 
King Crimson's 2-star THRAK album definitely gets the thumbs down from me though. Thumbs Down
 
I haven't heard the other five albums in your list, which is probably a good thing. Smile

^THRaKaTTaK is a live album of material from around the time of THRAK, but I suppose that would mean you'd probably dislike that one too Paul.

Thanks for the info about King Crimson's THRaKaTTaK album, which I hadn't heard of before, and I have The Power to Believe you're right when you say I won't like the live THRAK album either. Smile

David Bowie - Hours.

It was hailed as a sort of comeback when it came out in 1999, but I found it incredibly boring. I'd rather listen to weak 80's albums like Tonight or Never Let Me Down. The reception is even more strange considering that a much more forward thinking album such as 1. Outside never got the credit it deserves.

David Bowie's Earthling album was the one I really disliked, mainly because of the awful drum & bass machine sound. Confused

But at least he tried out things on Earthling, such as drum and bass music (whether or not one likes that type of music is another story - it's not so much my thing, but I acknowledge its qualities). On Hours it doesn't sound to me like he is trying anything.

^ I listened to all of David Bowie's albums last year, but I don't recall the Hours album at all, which probably indicates it's a very forgettable album.  Smile

Love Breathless too. Mine are:
10) Renaissance: Camera, Camera (they should have stuck to what they were good at)
9) Yes: 90125 (no Steve Howe, no Yes)
8) Genesis: Invisible Touch (disco Genesis with drum machines blaring, We Can't Dance a great improvement)
7) Pink Floyd (or should I say Roger Waters): Final Cut (mostly for the politics)
6) Dream Theater: Metropolis Part 2 (music designed to bore you to death)
5) The Flower Kings: The Sum of No Evil (as above)
4) Transatlantic: The Whirlwind (as above - with contributions from members of the above two bands - honorable mention to Neal Morse for Testimony parts one and two)
3) Gryphon: Treason (when you can't think of anything imitate Yes)
2) Marillion: Less is More (when you don't have any new material)
1) Electric Light Orchestra: Eldorado (one song album stretched out to 40 minutes with the padding)

Less Is More is sort of Marillion unplugged, should not bother anyone, take it as it is, I find it enjoyable and even relaxing at times. 

"when you don't have any new material"?! - they had released a double album less than a year ago. Confused

Love the band, but "Pure" never click on me, perhaps the voice of Fog or the lack of experimentation compared to "Strange in Stereo" and "Omnio".

1.The Construkction Of Light - King Crimson
2. Giant For a Day - Gentle Giant
3. Wonderworld - Uriah Heep
4.  Locked In - Wishbone Ash
5. Aerosol Grey Machine - VDDG
6. Broadsword and The Beast - Jethro Tull
7. The Unfortunate Cup of Tea - Horslips
8. Ian Anderson - Rupi's Dance
9. Mother Focus - Focus

I just realized...maybe I am not really into prog, as I can only select these 9 acts I possibly "love"... all the other prog artists that I have in my collection I just don't "love" that much. Uriah Heep I loved up until 1973....and Wishbone Ash are prog-related as well.

Question is; can anyone really love King Crimson?! Or is it too simplistic to love KC?! I don't love them; just respect them.

I really like Aerosol Grey Machine, and I like Mother Focus. As for Giant for a Day, it's more that I just plain dislike it than love to hate it.

I can't think of any albums that I love to hate, I know there have been some guilty pleasure ones that I have somewhat hated to love.

The only love to hate thing that I can think of right now might have been Chibnal's Doctor Who run, which is off-topic.

As for King Crimson, I have no reason to think that people don't genuinely love it. I genuinely love KC music, but not all of it. I haven't thought of it as particularly simplistic nor that complex. There is a lot of very simple music that I love, and I know that a lot of very simple music that people love. I'm not sure how serious you are being or if I may be misunderstanding you. Even in Prog, I wouldn't call it simplistic, let alone compared to much mainstream rock and pop music.

What an odd question. Or perhaps I just donít understand what you are questioning? Or perhaps you are being facetious?

I definitely love King Crimson. Not everything theyíve done - but then again, Iím not sure there is any band or artist for whom I love everything theyíve done. But I certainly love a lot of King Crimsonís music, and enough for me to say that I love them. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Crimson's The Construkction Of Light is actually one of their best albums. Actually Crimson never made a weak album, they are all enjoyable, and their best albums can be found in any of their phases.

But at least he tried out things on Earthling, such as drum and bass music (whether or not one likes that type of music is another story - it's not so much my thing, but I acknowledge its qualities). On Hours it doesn't sound to me like he is trying anything.

I know. 1. Outside esp the full 2 cd version is very interesting. Nice re-write after The Leon Suites,which his distribution company refused. That would have tested many.

Earthling is very powerful sounding. The second Cd sort of acts like a mini Dead Man Walking concept piece. He took the modern approach then (as ever) and applied song craft. Very novel.

Just because someone hates particular albums doesn't mean they aren't any good, just that we respond differently to certain albums and the fact we love particular bands we tend to react harshly to the albums we don't like from those bands we love because we have high expectations from them.
