Robert Fripp, after Zappa and maybe Gilmour, is my favorite Guitar player. Adrian Belew is pretty close.
If you don't include Zappa or Floyd as progressive rock. The best is King Crimson all the way Yes and Jethro Tull round out Top 5

A very difficult band to rate because they could be brilliant as on Red, Larks Tongue's, and the debut, but their other lp's seem some way short of these high points.

Robert Fripp may be the most pretentious person to ever exist, but he made some great music.

Monsters of prog rock. Not every album they made is a masterpiece, but all deserve to be listened to. Although that is quite demanding sometimes.

Probably the greatest prog rock band in history! Definately the greatest album in prog rock! Love that this band existed, that such great musicians passed through it's membership, that it was all possible for one brief period of time. If Great Britain still cared about passionate, brilliant, difficult music we would have statues of them in our town centre's, if our Royal Family mattered at all they'd all be Knighted, like our great actors and composers of the past! Arise Sir Robert Fripp!

King Crimson pretty much invented prog, I.T.C.C.K. is obviously their best work (and possibly one of the best albums ever) but In The Wake Of Poseidon and Red really aren't that much worse and Islands, Larks & ect., and Discipline are still all worth a listen, I don't know much about their other stuff but it doesn't attract me too much.

I once worked with a guy who had two musical obsessions - King Crimson and Kate Bush (he had that great poster of Kate Bush in the workout gear on his wall... perv.) Anyway, he kept on trying to convince me that they had dozens of fantastic albums. I never got past In the Court of the Crimson King. It's brilliant. It created a whole new genre. I just found the other more work to listen to... whereas their debut rewards me every time.
