One, Two and Three are Yes, Genesis and Crimso - obviously. In every list but those of a madman (I will accept them in any order - that is a matter for personal choice) but after that it gets complicated. Tull were prog for precisely two and a half albums...The Floyd never but they sort of verged on it...
They would be my choices for the final two places were they eligible..
But they are not really Prog so they shouldn't be. Same with Rush.
Frankly I don't really care for any of the other genuine prog bands that much.
I probably like Camel and Caravan more than I like VDGG and Gentle Giant but they are all rubbish really.
So who is allowed?
Vote for the acts you consider in order of importance and influence to the world of prog and not just your personal favourites. In any books or lists on prog both Floyd and Tull would feature, so if you think they fit the bill vote for them.
