I have left out some of the most obvious and overplayed albums ("Dark Side of the Moon", boring after 178 plays!).
I've left our all the Italian stuff, which I don't know much about; plus Amon Duul which I havent heard, or rather tried and gave up.
I know Van Der Graaf Generator should be in but I'm not much of a fan.
Rest assured this is Rock Revival's favourite, rather than the favourite of every prog fan in the universe.
1 Aqualung: Jethro Tull
2 Relayer: Yes
3 The Power and the Glory: Gentle Giant
4 Court of the Crimson King King Crimson
5 Misplaced Childho0d: Marillion
(what a brilliant piece of crossover, the album with Kayleigh and alot more)
6 Genesis: The Lamb Lays Down....
7 Animals: Pink Floyd
(because the others have been played to death)
8 Deloused at the Comatorium: Mars Volta
(wow ! there are no weak points on this entire album)
9 Permanent Waves: Rush
(pop without losing an inch of prog, complete with changeing time signatures, even a bit of reggae)
10 Magicians Birthday: Uriah Heep
11Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots: Flaming Lips
(does this fit !)
12 Spirals in Hyperspace: Ozric Tentacles
( ? personal taste)
13 Behind the Music: Soundtrack of Our Lives
(close to prog, but still heavily influenced by it, their first album was more classic prog)
14 Octivarium: Dream Theatre
15 The Roaring Silence: Manfred Man's Earth Band
16 Journey to the Centre of the Earth: Rick Wakeman
17 Warchild: Jethro Tull
(this and 18 are massively under rated)
18 Tormato: Yes
19 Liquid Tension Experiment I
20 Pampered Menial: Pavlov's Dog
21 Camel: Moon Madness1
22 Fantasmogoria: Curved Air
23 In Absentia: Porcupine Tree
