IMO overall modern prog is not better. There are only some songs that are better to me e. g. Sigur Ros - Dauðalogn. I haven't heard any band so special, etheral, angelic, sometimes childlike ...

Farmhouse Odyssey and Once and Future Band. Actually, screw that. I believe that as long as it's good music it doesn't matter if it's new or old. The thing is that nowadays there's more music in general, it's easier to make it and therefore there's more stinkers.
Listen, hold me, do not run awaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!

Transatlantic "Stranger In You Soul"
The Flower Kings "Love Supreme"
Neal Morse "The Door"
The Tangent "In Earnest"
Kaipa "A Complex Work Of Art"
Steven Wilson "Luminol"
Big Big Train "Folklore"
Wobbler "From Silence To Somewhere"

All the above are every bit as good as Classic Era Prog (in my opinion.) And there are lots more!!!

The following albums make me think that modern prog can be as good as or even better than classic period prog:

Part The Second (Maudlin Of The Well)
From Silence To Somewhere (Wobbler)
Anno Domini High Definition (Riverside)
Crack The Skye (Mastodon)
Viljans Öga (Änglagård)
The Death Defying Unicorn (Motorpsycho & Ståle Storløkken)
The Black Chord (Astra)
Fear Of A Blank Planet (Porcupine Tree)
Snowtorch (Phideaux)
The Mountain (Haken)
Posthumous Silence (Sylvan)
For Long Tomorrow (Toe)
Pulsar (Counter-World Experience)

 

 

I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.
