Progressive but not "prog"
That has to be in the same way all post rock bands are progressive but not prog then.
There'd be quite a few. Who cares anyway? 
True.
Just out of curiosity, Gabe, but what post rock bands do you consider prog? And do you consider these bands Prog or progressive rock? I can see that the earlist bands like Tortoise, Mogwai, GY!BE and Sigur Rós can be labelled progressive rock, but Prog?

None that I can recall I would go and label "prog", unless an overlap with math rock is part of that band's recipe, but I think usually that results in a more math-rock styled group anyway. Post rock is represented on this site alongside the classic 70's prog groups, and rightfully so in my opinion, as you could say they share a willingness to explore and experiment with dynamics and textures in often longer-form compositions, so rock that is progressive.

Math rock generally has more in common with what I'd call prog, because of the heavy use of odd time sigs/time sig changes and the multiple change-ups of parts in a given piece of music, which leads to the question of why they decided to merge the two genres here but that's another topic.

Yeah, that's what i thought you meant, Gabe, rock that is progressive, not Prog, and I agree.

Not very familiar with the math rock part of the sub-genre, but I've seen Battles' music labeled as such, and their debut is perhaps the most prog post/math rock album I've heard, come to think of it, so I kind of see what you mean.

How can a pop band of the 80s win?

They didn't. The poll was closed one week ago.

LOL they didn't man.

BUT if they had.. you.. and any Camel voters would have no room for complaint. A genuinely progressive and ground breaking group defeated by a generic knock off who contributed little to the genre. Akin to a pop group knocking off a prog band.  However it isn't about that is it. Smile

As a very wise long time PA's veteran once noted.. there really is no accounting for personal tastes.
