The Dreaming
1.  The Dreaming by Kate Bush
The list author says:
  "This is Kate Bush's most progressive album and it is a FREAKING masterpiece! It's a love it or hate it album for most people.  This is quality creativity.  Enjoy it with headphones (a must). Also good while driving in the car with people you barely know."

Close to the Edge
2.  Close to the Edge by Yes
The list author says:
  "The flagship of all progressive rock albums. A must-have. The title track builds up to a dramatic and inspiring ending. This album is 100% perfect and can be enjoyed anytime/anywhere, but especially with headphones while riding on a city bus."

Thud
7.  Thud by Kevin Gilbert
The list author says:
  "Brilliant creative artist. Can't understand why he didn't sell millions of copies of any of his CDs. Also check out the sublime, intelligent pop CD "Toy Matinee", a group in which Kevin performed. Good during the day time."

Inner Revolution
11.  Inner Revolution by Adrian Belew
The list author says:
  "I first picked up this gem about 14 years ago and it didn't hit home with me. Took it out a couple of years ago and gave it another spin. WOW! Great album! Also, I've seen Adrian in concert about 11 times and he is a MONSTER on the guitar. Don't miss an opportunity to see him live. You won't regret it. Also check out Adrian's "Young Lions" CD."

Once More With Feeling
14.  Once More With Feeling by Rosie Flores
The list author says:
  "This gal can PLAY the guitar! Mix of country with blues and rockabilly. In early 2011 I saw her perform in a very small venue near San Antonio/Austin. She was cool and unpretentious and packed a lot of music in one night. Rosie played the guitar as if she was born with the thing. A very under-rated performer. Listen while eating BBQ or TexMex food or while other people are dancing."
$10.50   Used & New from: $2.10

As the World
15.  As the World by Echolyn
The list author says:
  "Takes many listens before you can get into it. Excellent if you like complexity in music. This is best listened to while there are no distractions."
$8.44   Used & New from: $1.96
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Clutching at Straws
16.  Clutching at Straws by Marillion
The list author says:
  "Best listening is while driving at night. Excellent lyrics and musical performance. Also good with headphones. This is not a wake-up in the bright and happy morning type of CD....it's for listening while it's dark outside and you want to veg-out while still thinking at the same time. This is the last Marillion CD with Fish at the mic. It's also his best performance."
$13.78   Used & New from: $4.96
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Shoot Out the Lights
17.  Shoot Out the Lights by Richard & Linda Thompson
The list author says:
  "Very catchy folk-sounding rock with a little prog and somewhat eccentric. Brilliant....can't understand why it didn't sell millions of copies."
$10.69   Used & New from: $3.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

Group 87
18.  Group 87 by Group 87

Tormato
19.  Tormato by Yes
The list author says:
  "One of the red-headed step-children of Yes albums, but it's a guilty pleasure for me (along with Tales from Topographic Oceans, Drama, and Talk). Love it!"
$11.27   Used & New from: $3.82
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (187 customer reviews)

OK Computer
20.  OK Computer by Radiohead

Glass Houses
21.  Glass Houses by Billy Joel

Thrak
22.  Thrak by King Crimson
The list author says:
  "Excellent KC album. They are like no other band. Best while laying on the living room floor with good loudspeakers (not headphones)."
$12.99   Used & New from: $6.70
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (76 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Underfall Yard
23.  Underfall Yard by Big Big Train
The list author says:
  "Very inspiring and deep. This has quickly become one of my favorites with Winchester Diver being my favorite song with its emotional refrain. Sublime! Use expensive headphones or quality loudspeakers and you must be in a soaring emotional mood. Also good after Italian food."
$12.21   Used & New from: $9.50
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Drama
24.  Drama by Yes
The list author says:
  "An under appreciated album that came right after the end of the classic era (Tormoato) and right before the new era explosion of 90125. This gem of an album sounds futuristic and actually rocks like no other Yes album!"
$12.38   Used & New from: $2.91

Big Science
25.  Big Science by Laurie Anderson
