10,000 Days was definitely the one I liked the most out of their albums. Probably because it was the most musically varied and also has the most obvious King Crimson influences with a couple bits that sound basically like Discipline or Red but with metal guitars. Probably the most likely to return to that one.
Lateralus would be the runner up I suppose. It's more nu-metally but still has some alright proggy bits.
Undertow was more just a normal metal album (ditto for Opiate), I can't remember anything about Ænima but I only listened to it once so far.
