Well, I agree with Moondog here, if it comes to only one I would have to choose GENESIS, followed real close by Yes and King Crimson... and ELP, Pink FLoyd and Jethro right behind them.... of course I would throw Gentle Giant,  PFM and early Queen to the mix.. just as bonus bands ;)

A day late and a dollar short, but I'm going to jump on board with the lone vote for Jethro Tull.  They get my vote for two reasons:

1) They're one of my big three (Yes, Rush, Tull).

2) People have been ragging on them.  :P
 
Ian Anderson is probably my favorite vocalist, too.  Nyah!

I went with Pink Floyd, with Yes as a close second.  Of course, if Rush was on the list... ::)

How impossible was this answer?  I voted for Yes because they were the doorway into prog-rock for me when my older brother gave me hand-me-down copies of Yessongs and Relayer.  But in the intervening years, I have come to love the others on the list just as much.  So maybe I should have voted King Crimson since they are my fave from the list right now.

Anyway, suffice to say that I wholeheartedly agree with the list itself.

aaaahhhh too bad it could not have been the big 7 with RUSH my favorite band included.
For the poll some good choices but I have to pick YES.

I voted for King Crimson (all of it, not just the 60s-70s stuff)

I have that book too!

Hey everyone, I just had to vote for Pink Floyd. It would have been Peter Gabriels Genesis but Phil Collins pop trio spoiled that band for me  :D. Since I've found the station (Hooray) I'm hearing some amazing things, so now that PF are on the way out Dividing Line is filling my ears with King Crimson. I had only heard 'In the court of ...' before. Mmm, can I change my vote later?

All great bands but only King Crimson is truly progressive. All the rest became something else. Still love them but they moved away from Progressive.

Genesis.

What I think is interesting is that Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull are often cited as being progressive rock acts, and neither of them (to these ears, at least) qualify in the way that Genesis, King Crimson or Everton, Snake and Parsnip might.

Oh well...

I went wth Crimson, though if we limited it to 70s material only, it would be a very close call with Genesis.

Pink Floyd here.  But Yes and Genesis really made me pause for it too. And I would have certainly had to pause if Rush had been up there.
