Top 10 Greatest Progressive Rock Albums

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Styx II - Styx

Perhaps it's bias since I'm also from Chicago, but Styx deserves higher than 101. This album had their first hit "Lady".

142 Atomic Rooster - Atomic Rooster

Very disappointing and of its time.Their reunion LP at the time of the NWOBHM and an attempt to jump on the band wagon that sadly fails and makes for a rather predictable and forgettable listening experience. Stick to the first two LPs and forget the rest

143 The Geese and the Ghost - Anthony Phillips
144 The Tokyo Tapes - Steve Hackett
145 Union - Yes
146 Fugazi - Marillion
147 Passion and Warfare - Steve Vai
148 Angel's Egg - Gong

This is part 2 of the Radio Gnome Invisible series. All 3 are great. Part 1 is Flying Teapot, and part 3 is You.

149 The Incident - Porcupine Tree
150 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

151 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...

152 Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson Lake & Palmer

Sick album Emerson is a god Rip

153 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!

154 Wake Pig - Three
155 Out of Myself - Riverside

Part 1 of a trilogy

156 Rapid Eye Movement - Riverside
157 Second Life Syndrome - Riverside
158 The Songs of Distant Earth - Mike Oldfield
159 Train of Thought - Dream Theater
160 Still Life - Opeth
