    1. Camel - Mirage
    2. King Crimson - Red
    3. Queen - Sheer Heart Attack
    4. Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties
    5. Hawkwind - Hall of the Mountain Grill
    6. Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs
    7. Strawbs - Hero and Heroine
    8. Nico - The End
    9. Leonard Cohen - New Skin for the Old Ceremony
    10. Focus - The Hamburger Concerto

    HM: Tom Waits, Tangerine Dream, Magma, Comus, King Crimson (Starless and Bible Black), Van Morrison.

    The top 2 albums are all-time top 10 for me. And contain my two favourite prog songs ever, 'Lady Fantasy' and 'Starless'.
    Then there's career peaks from Queen, BOC and Hawkwind. Awesome year.
