When rating prog albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the entire body of Prog. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations or live albums.

My Ratings:
Note: I vote on a bell curve, anything above 6 is really good, anything much below 4 really isn't :D

    And you should give Stupid Dream another try! Where is signify? Signify is a progressive masterpiece. So is Lighbulb Sun.

    Thanks for the heads-up on Coma Divine - I've updated my script to remove live albums.

    Having 19 albums of your list in my own collection. Nice one. Maybe you must give some Rush albums another try. But thats my own taste.
