Nobody ever picks crisis what crisis. Of supertramp always,others.Crisis  is killer Supertramp

That album is among Supertramp's very best work; IMO it's better than Breakfast In America.

In order, I like Crisis, Crime, Even in the Quietest Moments, then Breakfast. I haven't heard Indelibly Stamped.

One album I forgot was Poco's Legend.

No particular order:

King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black
YES - Close to the Edge
YES - Relayer
Return to Forever - Romantic Warrior
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Inner Mounting Flame
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire
Eberhard Weber - Colours of Chloe
PFM - Storia di un Minuto
PFM - Per Un Amico

Magma - Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh
Magma - Köhntarkösz Anteria

Il Balletto di Bronzo - YS
Arti e Mestieri - Tilt
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
Pain of Salvation - Remedy Lane
Thinking Plague - In Extremis

Gentle Giant - Octopus
Museo Rosenbach - Zarathustra
Oregon - Out of the Woods
Bruford - One of a Kind
Deus Ex Machina - Equilibrismo da Insofferenza
Frank Zappa - One Size Fits All
Frank Zappa - Zoot Allures

I could list many more that I consider my all time greatest.

I just noticed that 23% of my favorites are Italian bands. I guess I like my Italian prog!

Hmm...I think there are too many good artists for me to try to do this. I'm terrible at favorites, I really have none.  I could list off albums I like, but I would have no idea of "greatness".  And, I can't stand bands like the Beatles, the Doors, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, any heavy metal band, as I listened to them too many times when I was younger.  I have nothing except token albums from that era, or albums my wife had.

It'll be great to look through these lists, though, to see what I could add to my list to buy.
