Thank you for providing a link to the list. Actually, Rush fared relatively well compared with their previous (2009) ranking. I was somewhat surprised to see the Gnosis list which still does not regard Rush as a "progressive rock" band, at all.

On a positive note, Yes fans and Genesis fans had quite a few albums in the top 10. I was somewhat surprised to see "The Raven Who Refused To Sing," by Steven Wilson ranked so highly.

It is a shame that no live albums were included. Therefore, I have decided to copy and alter the list, accordingly to more properly reflect what i consider to be a more accurate representation of the top 10 list, combined with my opinion:
