Thanks! Probably the hardest band to rank so far for me... and while discussing Rush in a facebook group I wonder if there is any other band where opinions and rankings of albums are so varying, seems like everyones list is so different from the next persons

Great band! great list! And I agree with JoHn it's a tough ranking but well done for making the effort, and I would also have your number one as my number one, so it's a thumbs up from me

Bands that consistently put out good albums are difficult to rank. I can think of a few - Rush, Threshold, Marillion, IQ, Pink Floyd, Fates Warning, Pain of Salvation, Nevermore, even Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Black Sabbath.

Yes that's true. Some good suggestions there by the way, Uriah Heep would be fun to listen to everything, mostly familiar with their 70's albums but the songs I heard from their 2000's albums have been really good. Also Marillion, but they feel like a high mountain to climb

Uriah Heep has released a lot of albums, same with Marillion.
Marillion has released if i remember right 19 albums + the B-Sides Themselves compilation, which I see as an album (it contains their first EP, some parts of it re-recorded and a few B-sides singles, obviously, must listen IMO). If you ever want to explore and start enjoying them, you could take it chronologically.

As for Heep, a few uneven albums, but even on their least inspired albums (to put it gently), there are some good songs.
