excluding downloads it's Pink Floyd (including solo works) and Vangelis. I have downloaded the whole Senmuth's discography that I'm reviewing since one year and it's more than 80 albums (www.senmuth.com).

Jethro Tull, Yes, Porcupine Tree and King Crimson - almost all cds, some lps and digital downloads. Probably own all most all of Jethro Tull's studio albums. The others I have named are fairly close behind.

Probably Pink Floyd followed by Jethro Tull. Many of my complete discography-kinda bands are not strictly prog, a lot of Herbie Hancock comes to mind. Otherwise I'm a bit like a lot of us, 2-6 albums of many bands etc

I own about 50 Zappa albums with some live stuff thrown in for good measure, plus at least 25 or 30 of Tangerine Dream´s. 
It has come to the point where I am in serious need of space. I have at least 15 records stored in the kitchen... Have to be real careful not to chop up my Draconian times cd, when stumbling home after a night on the town - in dyer need of some onion hamburger marmalade cous cous with tomatoes and Tuborg.

Yes and friends.  I have all studio albums, official live albums, and numerous compilation albums with the Yes name on them.  In addition, my goal is to own as many of the albums that members of Yes have appeared on as is possible.  I don't suspect that I will ever be able to find all of them.  Especially, trying to obtain all of Rick Wakeman's solo output which is outlandish, and from what I hear, much of it isn't really worth obtaining other than to add to my mission.

i should also add that i have everything the late Helmut Koellen ever recorded, his work with Triumvirat, and then his music in the group Jail, and then his posthumous solo album-it is not a lot of music, but endearing to me, nonetheless

Tom waits is a close second with 16 albums but he wins by a gigabyte in terms of actual music.
magma, ulver, and miles davis close out the top five.

EDIT: just kidding, I own way more sonic youth albums than Ulver... my mistake.

Considering the Van Der Graff Generator too, Peter Hammill is for sure the number 1 of my music archive. I got the all discography of him and VDGG, official and most of the bootlegs. Mike oldfield follow at the 2nd place and probably the 3rd is Peter Gabriel and Genesis.

Pink Floyd

Zach Hill (solo and "sideman" albums, because he's hardly a "sideman" on anything)
Soft Machine

If we're counting the Beatles, they win by a long shot; even though the early stuff was progressive for it's time, you wouldn't call Meet the Beatles "prog-rock".

I don't have the two Steinhardt-Moon albums and the Kansas 'From the Front Row Live' audio DVD thoug.  The Steinhardt-Moon stuff is just too expensive to justify, and as for the other one an audio DVD is just a stupid idea (besides, that concert has been reissued on at least five CDs and I have all of them).

Plus a poster signed by Steinhardt and a drumstick signed by Phil Ehart. Big smile

Clap Just got my copy of The Wake 25th Anniversary Edition, and I love their last five albums Thumbs Up

The artist I know most about would be Steve Wilson. I used to be very deep into Pink Floyd, but I never clicked with their early stuff. Also, when it comes to Steve Wilson, there is just so much to know, I'm still working my way through his discography. I've got most of the Porcupine Tree DVD-As and Bass Communion LPs, the Deluxe books of both solo albums and some a few other things; the Insurgentes Documentary, No-Man DVD-As, some Porcupine Tree CDs and EPs, etc. As I go deeper into each project, I'm also going to start enjoying the I.E.M. MP3s I recently got. Looking forward to Storm Corrosion too!! I still don't have his King Crimson mixes, but that's on the list as well  Big smile

I'm also getting deeper into Toby Driver. I adore maudlin of the Well and Tartar Lamb II. His solo album is amazingly creepy, l Iove it!! I'm still slowly introducing myself to Kayo Dot though.

Genesis / Steve Hackett would be my biggest collection. Even though I have non-Hackett Genesis (up to Duke+Archives), the guitar is a lot of what I listen to on these albums.

I just counted 92 Zappa CDs, though double CD sets were counted as two.  Total distinct titles probably number around 70-80.  I think that's way too many.

Second place was pretty much a tie between Magma (23) and Residents (24), again counting each double set as two.

I also didn't count CDR copies, mp3 purchases, or unofficial live recordings.  These are all CDs I bought or stole at gunpoint.

What's all the 'songs' stuff?  If a Klaus Schulze fan only has three songs but they're all over 70 minutes each, is that more than owning the first five Jethro Tull albums, which would be a shorter total of minutes? 
We're not interested in songs, we're interested in albums.  Show me a Prog fan who says he doesn't like albums and I'll show you a liar.

1) Dream Theater (11 studio + 3 EPs/demo + 5 live/compilation + 10 bootleg + 2 special edition) = 31 total
2) Rush (19 studio albums) = 19 total
3) Pink Floyd (11 studio albums) = 11 total
3) Yes (11 studio albums) = 11 total
5) King Crimson (9 studio albums) = 9 total
6) Muse (6 studio + 2 live) = 8 total

I've got fewer than five albums by everyone else (or they aren't prog). I haven't had much money lately to expand my collection, but it's a work in progress. I still check out the record store a couple times a month. Smile

Not necessarily so. I know a lot of people who dig prog, but continue to flip through tracks and artists like some kind erratic puppy kennel djs. Arguments start about who's turn to choose tune it is next. If I finally get them to listen to an album in it's entirety - chances are we won't get more than two or three tracks in, and suddenly some guy goes whoops and we're somewhere completely different sonically.
Attention span deficit perhaps?

Going by individual artist, it has to be Steven Wilson, Roine Stolt or Mike Portnoy for me: 

Wilson (all PT, all Blackfield, all solo, some No-Man, the Opeth albums he appeared on, Storm Corrosion, etc.) 
Stolt (all TFK, Kaipa, The Tangent, solo, Transatlantic, etc.)
Portnoy (all DT except the last one, most Neal Morse solo albums, Transatlantic, LTE and Flying Colors)

As of now, Yes. Their first seven albums, 1968-1974. Lame, I know.
