Great list. I would sub GOTN for Lord of Light and TBOS for IESF. Otherwise pretty spot on.

Hm, I made this list not long after the album came out but I'd say it's still the case. Usually my favorites on albums change after awhile.

Ordered as if it were one album...

[Not that these groups of 5 songs would fit on one side of an LP]

Side A:
The Wicker Man
Ghost of the Navigator
Brave New World
When the River Runs Deep
The Book of Souls

Side B:
Satellite 15...The Final Frontier
El Dorado
Face in the Sand

In chronological order, it looks something like this:

The Clansman
Blood Brothers
The Thin Line Between Love and Hate
Dance of Death
Paschendale
The Longest Day
The Legacy
Starblind
The Red and The Black
The Book of Souls

I was going to list some Honorable Mentions, but there are too many to mention!

If I'd make an album like Whooten (in my case to avoid the ranking order! :D) it would look like this, if Virus is allowed (not sure if this is only about album songs or not):

To be honest, these are (probably) my favourite songs but many of these have long intros so I am not sure if this would flow well as an album.

Side A:
The Unbeliever
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
Virus
Paschendale
Brave New World

Side B:
Isle of Avalon
Ghost of the Navigator
Blood on the World's Hands

Dance of Death
The Man of Sorrows


And like this if we don't count Virus:


Side A:

The Unbeliever
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
Brave New World
Paschendale
Blood on the World's Hands

Side B:

Isle of Avalon
Ghost of the Navigator

Dance of Death
Judgement of Heaven
The Man of Sorrows
 
Ghost of the Navigator
Blood Brothers
Dance of Death
Paschendale
Brighter Than a Thousand Sons
Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg
El Dorado
When the Wild Wind Blows
If Eternity Should Fail
The Book of Souls
