143 The Incident - Porcupine Tree The Incident - Porcupine Tree
144 Discipline - King Crimson Discipline - King Crimson

Oops meant best of the 80's trinity

The best of the 60's trinity.The other two couldn't match this and are avoidable

145 The Velvet Underground and Nico - The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground and Nico - The Velvet Underground

How exactly, is this a concept album? One of the best, but not for this list.

Ops, last comment, disregard - wrong list!
Still wouldn't call it a prog album though...

146 Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson Lake & Palmer

Sick album Emerson is a god Rip

147 Scheherazade and Other Stories - Renaissance Scheherazade and Other Stories - Renaissance

This album is beautiful symphonic prog. It is one of very few prog bands (3? including Curved Air and Catapilla) with a female vocalist and Annie Haslam has a 5-octave range!

148 Wake Pig - Three Wake Pig - Three
149 Out of Myself - Riverside Out of Myself - Riverside

Part 1 of a trilogy

150 Rapid Eye Movement - Riverside Rapid Eye Movement - Riverside
151 Second Life Syndrome - Riverside Second Life Syndrome - Riverside
152 Alturas de Machu Picchu - Los Jaivas Alturas de Machu Picchu - Los Jaivas
153 Tales of Mystery and Imagination - The Alan Parsons Project Tales of Mystery and Imagination - The Alan Parsons Project

The ultimate in literary concept albums.

154 The Songs of Distant Earth - Mike Oldfield The Songs of Distant Earth - Mike Oldfield
155 Train of Thought - Dream Theater Train of Thought - Dream Theater
156 Still Life - Opeth Still Life - Opeth
157 Erotic Cakes - Guthrie Govan Erotic Cakes - Guthrie Govan

One of the most versatile instrumentalists out there today. Deserves some recognition on the list.

Lol guthrie govan is not prog rock

158 The Power and the Glory - Gentle Giant The Power and the Glory - Gentle Giant

This is the best album ever. With "So Sincere" and "Cogs in Cogs" on the same album, what can top it!

I agree with this review and In a Glass house is neck to neck with it

159 Remember the Future - Nektar Remember the Future - Nektar

Nektar's best album - not only for the music and musicianship, but they also had the best light shows of anyone!

160 Fillmore East, June 1971 - Frank Zappa and the Mothers Fillmore East, June 1971 - Frank Zappa and the Mothers

This live album was a concept album about gigs on road trips. Zappa at his best!
