Default Best Prog album of all time?

What's your favorite prog album of ALL TIME?
I'd have to say mine is Close to the Edge by Yes. Such a great one.

Tie between that album, Gentle Giant's Power and the Glory, Lucifer's Friend's Banquet, Culpeper's Orchard, and Harmonium

As great as CTTE is, my favourite Yes album is Relayer.

However, there's already one of these threads

I, Robot by the Alan Parsons Project is a great one.

I far prefer "Eve". I robot suffers from some very very weak tracks whereas Eve imo has maybe one. Not sure I'd rate APP as a prog rock band though...

What the hell would you rate them as, then? They are most definitely a progressive rock band.

No. They were a pop band that used synth. Prog is Yes, Tull, Genesis, Giant, ELP, et cetera

Well, Alan Parsons produced Pink Floyd to start with. There's prog credentials right there. Secondly, 1976's Tales Of Mystery & Imagination through 1982's Eye In The Sky are most definitely progressive albums in a lot of ways. They're all conceptual, feature longer songs and a fair amount of experimental pieces mixed in with the poppier fare. Hence why APP often got labeled as "progressive pop" during their heyday.
