Cogs and Cogs (along with the rest of The Power and the Glory) is a masterpiece

That's one of my favorites from that album. Thought album wise i much prefer Free Hand.

I surprised myself and voted for "The Real Me".  I'm not a big Who fan, but it's everything I could want in the opening song of a great concept album...

I would have voted for Hotel Hobbies, but I never consider it as a stand alone song.  More like part 1 of what I like to call "The Hotel Hobbies Suite" which includes Warm Wet Circles and That Time of the Night.  They'll always be one 14 minute song for me.

It's a very strong song indeed! A classic rock staple for sure. 

I kind of agree with the Suite concept, when i first listened to Clutching Straws i noticed after That Time Of Night i really enjoyed the music - as if it was one song. I can listen to Hotel alone though. I think it stands alone better than Warm Wet Circles and That Time Of Night.

My favorite from the album at the moment is Slainte Mhath. Thumbs Up

Elephant9 - Fugl Fønix for me. Incredible way of starting an album! The drums from Lofthus are insane - buffalo-like or something to that effect.

Close call between GG and KC but as much as I love King Crimson, I think that Matte Kudasai is the weakest song of Discipline(Which is still a 5 stars album IMO)

KC or GG?
Mmmmm...
KC.

I never was a fan of Matte Kudasai. That reminds me, I heard a fellow playing that song on the street corner earlier this summer.

Wax Simulacra for me.

Not surprised by the GG love, but i wasn't thinking this KC song would do so well? Especially over songs like Separation and Hotel Hobbies.

Matte Kudesai over Hotel Hobbies. One of the best KC ballads. Lovely vocals from Belew.

Camel's Supertwister packs more prog than many epics tthree times its length.

In this order: Matte Kundesai is that gentle side of King Crimson which is too often ignored. Beautiful song with a great melody. The Real Me by the Who has some great bass playing courtesy of the late Ox. I also like The Sun in My Eyes by the Tangent.

C'mon how can I not vote Wax Simulacra? Such a fantastic song right there, and so so difficult to keep up with on the drums.

I really love Separation as well though

Tough choice between Cynic and Marillion, went with Cynic as I consider Hotel Hobbies only part of a suite (as already mentioned).

I think Evolutionary Sleeper was my introduction to Cynic through a post in the shred. FOREVER GRATEFUL. :D

One vote for The Tangent. It may not be their "proggiest" tune, but damn it's catchy!

Here it is. I can't believe that's actually what Thomas is playing in the track legit. Like that bass work is incredible.

Indeed, i've actually seen that after seeing who the guy is. He must have a powerful leg muscle cuz it looks like he's doing slide technique as well as the heel/toe. At least thats what i'm getting from staring at his leg LOL

Check out some more of his covers, if you haven't. He's got a couple TesseracT tunes, Periphery maybe? Killer player.
