    What are your top 10 articles of clothing that you like to wear when listening to prog?

    Name your top 10 of Lino's birthdays

    Top 10 lead singers that Yes has featured (and has yet to feature).

    Top 5 reasons why Phil Collins ruined Genesis



    You're right, Sean. Limitless fun!

    Sad to say that's just the albums released in 2012, you'd need to triple it to get close to total purchases this year.

    Defining prog albums for me would be:

    The Yes Album--Tell All Good People
    King Crimson's In The Court of the Crimson King
    Genesis Selling England By the Pound
    Pink Floyd's Ummagumma & Meddle
    The Mothers of Invention--We're Only In It For the Money

    My favourite half dozen, pre-prog, pre-1970 albums.......(cat amongst the pigeons time)....as my definition of a pre-prog (or as some say proto-prog) band is one that was pushing the boundaries of rock out of psych-pop and towards prog but when prog actually broke properly they went off in another direction (e.g. hard rock, contemporary folk, pop) or just carried on playing the same type of music or simply disbanded (e.g. The Nice)

    Deep Purple - Shades of Deep Purple (68)
    The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed (67)
    Procol Harum - A Salty Dog (69)
    The Nice- Ars Longa Vita Brevis (68)
    Argent - Argent (69)
    Strawbs - Strawbs (69)
