If your favorite album is not included, you can specify it.

As much as I loved ELP back in the day, I like Yes more as time goes by.

One of my all-time favorite albums was also released in '72 and is not on this list. It made number one on both the soul and pop charts. The World Is A Ghetto by War

If you had asked me back then, I would have, without hesitation, said Seventh Sojourn, with Harvest following ever so slightly.
I didn't hear Close To The Edge until at least a year later. i don't associate it with 1972, but I do think it is way better than the Moodies album and Harvest.
Can't Buy A Thrill is a great album, but it was hit and miss. The other three I mentioned didn't have, in my opinion at the time, one bad song on them.

But you already knew that's who I would vote for lol.

I listen to it more than any album listed as a choice.

I am of the opinion that close to the edge is the best yes record and probably my favorite prog record.

Also, Obscured By Clouds is underrated.

Foxtrot - Genesis
Close To The Edge - Yes
Per Un Amico - Premiata Forneria Marconi (PFM)
The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars - David Bowie
Genesis and Bowie are both in my top 5 bands/artists of all time, and each one is represented here by my favorite record of theirs. Yes isn't far behind though, and Close To The Edge is one of the first albums that comes to mind (along with Quadrophenia, Queen II, AFTK, and a few others) when I try to determine my second favorite album of all time (the first of course being Queen's 1975 masterpiece, A Night At The Opera). Meanwhile PFM have very nearly snuck their way into a potential top 20 band for me almost on the strength of Per Un Amico alone, a prog rock masterpiece that everyone and their mother should listen to if they have a taste for prog (language barriers are over exaggerated, and their isn't a ton of singing anyway). So let's see...
Foxtrot: a record that speaks to me of spring and summer, of my senior year of high school as well as each homecoming since college began. It has Supper's Ready, probably my 2nd favorite song of all time, but the rest of the record is nearly as strong and every bit as beautiful.
Ziggy Stardust: a record that brings me to the early spring and summer of my senior year of high school, but has never ceased to amaze me in its song by song brilliance and its ability to bear influence from all corners of rock before it and have influence on all corners of rock after it
Close To The Edge: a winter record for me, even Christmasy. I put it on in the past couple weeks and couldn't keep the smile from my face. Not a not is out of place in any one of these three songs, and I feel lost in another world full of fantasy and wonder for the whole of its runtime
Per Un Amico: An album that brings to mind the lighter side of my studies as an architecture major. It has often soundtracked my studio work and strongly soundtracked my Italian experience last school year. It brings me nothing but comfort and childlike wonder. Serene and enriching.
Okay, I don't want to decide. I'm gonna toss my vote to Foxtrot for two reasons. One: Supper's Ready. Two: it probably has the fewest votes between itself Ziggy and CTTE (Per Un Amico having not made the list).
