    Your Favourite Prog Album Of All Time (excluding the Big 6)

    The rules are pretty simple, no Big Six, if you can only pick one Prog CD to listen to from this point forward, which one?

    PFM - Per Un Amico

    So for the purposes of this discussion, what exactly is "The Big Six". Obviously, you're talking about Yes, ELP, Genesis, Crimson...but who are the other two?

    Magma: Köhntarkösz

    That's my choice for the moment, anyway.

    Probably a National Health or Hatfield or Caravan or Camel album.

    Wow, depressing thought - only one? Close to the edge it is.
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    Didn't think about that, but now that you say it, it's obvious. And then you've got, as others have suggested, Gentle Giant, though somehow, I never considered them one of the "Big" bands.

    Come to think of it, I've never heard of Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, or ELP, either.

    Who?

    All joking aside, I'd probably go with Tubular Bells.

    For what it's worth, the first album in Progarchives' 'top studios' list is VdGG's Godbluff, at #10. I note #16 is 'From Silence to Somewhere' from a band called 'Wobbler'. Wonder who'll pick that?

    Only one? Tough!

    Don't hold me to it but at this moment I'll choose:

    Barclay James Harvest - XII

    That limitation is very... limiting.

    Okay then, I'll give another vote for PFM - Per Un Amico. Absolutely gorgeous album. On another day it would probably be the first Celeste album.
