Spirit of Eden... by many.. MANY lightyears.  Only 2 albums in the modern contest would have got the vote over it.. and both of those went out in the first round and sure as hell were NOT retro prog albums LOL

"Hybris" has never really grown on me, but I find myself listening to it much more often than "Spirit Of Eden" - my favourite Talk Talk record that I've owned for a long time now. Still there's no question it's Talk Talk for me, but I imagine Anglagard will win this, especially seeing their PA rating. "Hybris" is fairly inconsistent IMO, but "Jordrok" is an excellently written, quintessential prog song, so I certainly won't be angry if they do win.

it is open for a week.. you need a certain number of points/posts before you can vote in polls here.  A lame attempt to keep people from creating fake ID's and voting multiple times.. 

like anyone would do that WinkLOL

Of course not. Spirit of Eden is a great album of 80s Art Rock (70s Art Rock had not contain that ambiental element). Actually, this is a "prog vs art rock" (i.e. "progressive rock album vs non progressive rock album") poll.

Talk Talk is not even Prog.

BTW: Retro Prog is a silly tag, it's only Symphonic Prog, a genre that still lives today.

There's retro Pop because Pop tends to have a short lapse of life, but Prog is made to last, so something recorded 20 years after the genre started is not retro.

It's like calling Classical Era as retro Baroque.

Hybris is PURE PROG.

Spirit of Eden. One of the best I discovered on the modern polls (I didn't listen to half of the albums though Embarrassed).

Hybris is strong and tight, but Spirit of Eden is overwhelmingly beautiful, and constructed with the utmost skill and care.

Not really.

Hybris for me by a fair way.
