Here's another alphabetical prog album list, this time albums beginning with the letter "L".  This poll has a few interesting subtexts hiding just below the surface.  First, this is a French heavy list thanks to the appearance of Ange, Atoll, Mona Lisa, Quadra & Shub Niggurath.  Second is a battle between King Crimson albums.  Third is the inclusion of live albums from Michael Brook, Hawkwind, Steve Hillage & Twelfth Night.  Finally, the end of the list pits Frank Zappa v Zoogz Rift in a battle of envelope pushing composers.  For those not familiar with Zoogz Rift, I refer to him as the Frank Zappa of New Jersey...check him out.  

Remember this is a multiple poll so vote for all your favorites!

Have fun...

It's a tie for me. Those KC albums are my favorite by them.

Lizard and Larks' are my two favorites by KC. Maybe a year ago I would have voted Lizard, but I've really grown a new appreciation for LTiA. So I'll vote for that

Lark's Tongues followed by Living in the Past.

Voted for Ange but surely this should be under "C" not "L".

Forget that. I've just got down to "T" and see that you've been consistent.
