I can't post my suggestions here. This is the error message I get:

Are you using accented characters or any odd symbols like that? If you are then replace them with normal characters or delete them and you should be fine.

Otherwise I don't know what the problem is, particularly given that you managed to post the above message without any difficulty.

I know this is a rather noobish question, but shouldn't Dark Side be higher? Or is its influence larger on genres outside of Prog?

That's basically what it comes down to. Not enough influence on the genre of prog as a whole.

One of the greatest rock albums of all time. The greatest prog album of all time.

Anyone else could see Selling England By The Pound taking #3 above BSS? It has gathered lots of lots of aclaim, and is slightly more popular... It's hard to meassure originality within two highly original and boundary-pushing albums, but SEBTP is definitely on par i'd say...

Yeah I'm going to be editing this list over the next few months, when I have the time. The list's not great, so it shouldn't be too difficult to improve. Selling England By the Pound is probably going to go top 2. Albums like Lateralus are moving way the fuck down.

Hi! Nice list, but I have to say Close To The Edge is the ultimate Prog album. I think most prog fanatics would agree too.

Moving Waves by Focus should have a decent shout

Lady Prog: No they wouldn't. "In the Court of the Crimson King" is to prog what "Are You Experienced?" is to guitar, and thus has no place at anywhere but #1.

The Seeker: Maybe. It's certainly an amazing prog album, but Hamburger Concerto might be better. There definitely should be some Focus on there though.

I certainly like Hamburger Concerto as much as MW, but suggested MW as its the more 'well known' with it containing Hocus Pocus (especially after the Nike ad) and the Eruption suite. I guess both are worthy of placement !

I dont know if you have heard Jan's 1st solo album from 72 'Profile', but that contains some mind-bending improv prog shred the like of which no-one had ever put on record before and of course you then have Tabernakel which is half Renaissance inspired Lute/acoustic work and half 'eclectic conceptual jazz rock'. Both are pretty unique and are certainly worthy of prog recognition.
