So a great number of us aren't simply Rush fans, but prog rock fans in general. And in testament to that, I figure it's time to elect 120 candidates to go up against each other in a series of polls to determine the board's favorite prog album ever! If you know you've got a controversial choice, you may want to explain it, but seeing as there will be polls after this thread, it probably won't matter. Albums that aren't prog probably just won't get votes.

Anyway, let's start things off on a high note:

1. Rush - 2112

say what you want about side 2, but side 1 is a prog essential

2. Yes - Tales of Topographic Oceans

Because I didn't want to have to explain why my choice was prog.
