    Opeth, Tool, Porcupine Tree, Katatonia, Cynic, Metallica, Bloodbath, Morbid Angel, Pink Floyd, Edge of Sanity, Enslaved, Agalloch, Michael Hedges, and quickly growing into Deathspell Omega and Nile. For my desert island though, all I need is Tool and Opeth discographies and I'm set.

    Opeth is not one of my favorites.

    I'd say Magma and King Crimson share the spot for #1, and behind that would be VDGG, Gentle Giant, Anekdoten, Harmonium and Frank Zappa. Of course, lately I've only been listening to prog so I'm a bit biased.
