Kinda assumed the big 3. You guys are so cliche. I mean really 2112, Xanadu & La Villa? :eyeroll:
They left the 70s behind for a reason. It was a choice. If the question is referring to composition, then Hemispheres takes the progressive epic cake easy. This question really shouldn't even exist in this form.

They left the seventies behind because in that decade they perfected their craft and then started to look elsewhere for inspiration lest they stagnate and die.

There is a reason why so many of our favourite songs are from this era: the lengthy songs were awesome, and they flat out rocked.

Don't even have to think twice about this.

Xanadu.

If it came out today, it would still be magnificent because it is timeless.  There are many albums and songs that came out in the late sixties and seventies that will never be dated for that fact.  

Xanadu is one of them.

Xanadu...never gets enough love from me, which now I come to think about it, is quite unforgivable!

I would say it's a toss-up between Xanadu and La Villa. Though YYZ get honorable mention.
