sorry I didn't use the exact sanctioned nomenclature. I grew up in a place where any metal band using a fast 2 beat was considered part of the crossover metal band. Black/thrash/death it was all just metal getting a hardcore punk injection.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

what is crossover metal? I know of crossover thrash which is a mix of thrash and hardcore-punk, i.e. Suicidal tendencies being the best known example.

Kate

Would have voted for Marillion - Season's End if had been an option. Important (and excellent) album that showed a distinct change of direction for 'neo prog'.

This was totally a tie between Present & Univers Zero.  I voted for Present because, uh, I had to vote for someone.  Finalists include Shub-Niggurath (Man With Hat, I feel your pain), Art Zoyd (but I voted for them in an earlier poll and I like to spread the love), Lindsay Cooper, News from Babel, Offering & Vasilisk (love that album title).  I'm not familiar with:  Leven Signs, Picky Picnic, Clivage, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Elicoide, Non Credo or Talk Talk.  As I've mentioned, Hounds of Love just doesn't knock me out the way it does most people.

Tough call between UZ, SN, and Present. 

I'll go with SN this time around.

My favorite of theirs is their swan song, Laughing Stock. Maybe try that one before you give them up completely. Depends on your preferences of course but I think its really quite something.

I could never get into that Talk Talk album which is supposed to be their best despite many listens over the years - guess it's just not for me. I bought the Kate Bush on release and liked it a lot but over the years less and less. So I voted for 'Present - Le Poison qui rend fou' with Hellebore as runner up. Nice list again.

Many I love here, but as soon as I saw Il y a des jours, which was first-thing, my mind was pretty well made-up.

Al-Jadida +
Roots & Sprouts &
