Prog Report: Top 50 Prog Albums 1990-2015 (July 2015)

Postby Pierre » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:55 am

Here's a list from a website called Prog Report. It looks like a staff list, but I don't know the general eligibility criteria.

The most interesting news is that they're issuing these days a book with a similar title and purpose, Essential Modern Progressive Rock Albums: Images and Words Behind Prog's Most Celebrated Albums 1990-2016 authored by their editor, Roie Avin:

It will probably be very similar to the list I'm transcribing here, but a few of the album covers on the book cover aren't featured in this top, so it should present some differences. The book will probably come out only in the English-speaking world, so it will be yours to track down, guys (unless it comes out on Google Books and there's a table of contents/index).

Here's the list on the website:
