    How odd they consider Part 2 better than Part 1. I don't see it, personally.
    I don't see why they wouldn't just select the Full Power version.

    Yup, but they don't despise it, they simply ridicule it (not hard to achieve with such a mainstream not-even-scratching-the-surface list), by making it another ugly four letter word

    With most of the names involved here, ridicule and ugly don't need making.

    But certainly not the top prog cock 47 list.

    But not what you don't. I suspect that may have been Cozy's point, kinda.

    I own, have owned and/or have heard most every album on this list. I'd place some of the same acts on a list of personal favorites, but different albums. But in no way would I attempt a definitive list of Top 10 anything on the internet, let alone prog albums. This publication should know better; all these acts (and their albums) have conventionally spelled and pronouncable names - amateurs.

    Hmmm.... Not bad, I would have included many of these but would have ordered them completely differently. I've established a rule recently that any "top" lists beyond 15 or 20 degenerate to noise very rapidly. And, yes, Transatlantic's first two albums and Spock's Beard's early albums should definitely be ranked higher than their later albums. I'd also have to included Sound of Contact VERY high (top 5 for sure). If I get a chance I'll have to try to come up with a top 20....

    it's the internet message board or social media equivalent of a "kick me" sign on your back. They're also rather unnecessary. Of all the Top 10 albums lists, whether prog, pop, jazz, rock or whatever, I usually only care for 5 or 6 of them or wouldn't rank some of them that high. Because, as always, YMMV.

    Besides, the concept of Top 10, 20 and higher lists of any kind have, by this point in time, been done to death.

    Obviously, this is the Top 30 Prog-list ONLY for the guy who made it.

    Face it, we'd all have a different list if we made one...

    unsure if it's just Roie Avin, who runs The Prog Report, or a cumulative list of the different writers that contribute to that site.
