My god is this band underrated. I mean seriously- their official YouTube account (which has existed for more than a year) has only 700 subscribers. It is refreshing to see that PA is one place where Motorpsycho gets some appreciation, because this band is fantastic. Personally I prefer their 90's albums over their new ones, specifically Trust Us and Lobotomizer (even though it's really not prog). I still find a lot of enjoyment in the band's new album though, the best one of this decade I think being Here Be Monsters released this year. It and Trust Us are probably my top picks. 

What do you guys think?

Also this live performance is great. Just sayin'.

I jumped on-board with The Death Defying Unicorn, mainly for its collaboration with Stale Storlokken, then acquired Still Life With Eggplant and Behind The Sun. All excellent albums, especially Eggplant. I need to get more. I don't think there's a shortage of fans here at P.A.

Norwegian prog rocks!
Motorpsycho, Gazpacho, White Willow, Terje Rypdal. All are excellent artists.

On second thought maybe this should have gone in artist appreciation. Oh well.

I've been meaning to buy some of their albums for quite some time........I like Heavy Metal Fruit, Behind The Sun, and some tracks from other ones......very talented with a wide range of prog styles .
 
this is a great 'prog epic' imho....

^Gullible's Travels is excellent. Though I'm not personally as much of a fan of their new stuff Heavy Metal Fruit is definitely up there with my favorites.

The Death Defying Unicorn is hands down one of my top 20 of the millennium.   I've seen that popular top 50 prog albums of the millennium floating around.   Replace one of the Neal Morse albums with a Death Defying Unicorn!

Fabulous band! Unicorn is my favorite as well, but I haven't heard any I dislike. 

Another favorite is the vinyl only Child of the Future.

Trust Us is amazing, those riffs on Ozone Tongue
They flutter behind you your possible pasts,
Some bright-eyed and crazy, some frightened and lost.
