Haken - Vector

Heavy Prog

Breaking into the top-10 with their 5th full-length album, Vector,  UK's Haken continues to solidify their place in the world of Progressive Metal. 2018's offering shows once again their knack for compositional complexity and dynamic contrast.

#9

Cheer-Accident - Fades

RIO/Avant-Prog

After just missing a spot in the top-10 in 2017 with Putting Off Death, Chicago's Cheer-Accident storms into the 2018 list at #9 with Fades. Thymme Jones and company show no signs of letting up as they approach their 5th decade.

 

#8

Phideaux Infernal

Crossover Prog

Phideaux Xavier is considered by many a pillar of 21st century US progressive rock. After producing LP's at a rate of nearly one per year in the 2000's, the teens have been less proliferative, with 2018's Infernal only the 2nd of the decade. Fans will find it well worth the wait as it is the long-awaited 3rd part of the trilogy started with The Great Leap and Doomsday Afternoon.

#7

Elephant9 - Greatest Show On Earth

Jazz Rock/Fusion

Oslo based trio Elephant9 carry the jazz rock flag into the top-10 with their 5th studio album Greatest Show On Earth. A delicious retro stew ensues, punctuated by the growling keyboard stylings of Ståle Storlökken

#6

The Tangent - Proxy

Eclectic Prog

After The Slow Rust of Forgotten Machinery was well received for the the number 16 spot in 2017, Andy Tillison's outfit comes right back and moves up 10 spots with Proxy.  

#5

Koenji Hyakkei - Dhorimviskha

 

Zeuhl

Arguably the Godfather of Japanese Zeuhl, drummer Yoshida Tatsuya is the driving force behind Koenji Hyakkei. The band's 5th album, Dhorimviskha arrives after a 13 year break from their last studio release and makes it into this year's top-5.

 

#4

PiNioL - Bran Coucou

RIO/Avant-Prog

The unholy union of two Lyon, France based bands; mathy experimental rockers ni and bombastic eclect-o-philic power-trio Poil, this congealed hybrid disproves the stereotype that RIO/Avant has no groove. A solid #4 debut for this heavy hitter.

#3

Anna von Hausswolff - Dead Magic

Crossover Prog

If ever the proverbial book could be judged by its cover, it would be Dead Magic. The Gothic ambience issued forth from Sweden's Anna von Hausswolff's 4th album is as riveting as it is chilling. A very frosty bronze medal.

The 2017 Prog Archives Collaborator's Runner-Up

Far Corner - Risk

 

RIO/Avant-Prog

While Far Corner has its roots in Wisconsin, well known for its dairies, you will find no cheese here. Eleven years removed from their previous album, Endangered, 2018's Risk is approached by the band with what appears on the surface to be a far more globally accessible delivery. Indeed, the instrumentation is more electrified than the chamber based predecessors, but avant-garde purists need not worry. There are plenty of dirty little morsels scattered about to devour. This album has a little something for everyone.

...And The 2018 Prog Archives Collaborator's Album of the Year!

All Traps On Earth - A Drop Of Light

Symphonic Prog

The title stays in Scandinavia for the 2nd year in a row after last year's absolute runaway by Wobbler. The rout was even more pronounced in 2018 as Sweden's All Traps On Earth more than doubled the vote score of the runner-up. This album seemed to come out of nowhere at the end of the year and grabbed the hardened progger with authority more often than not. The bands origins are well documented to this point, but they did not rest on the laurels of pedigree. Compositionally complex and adventurous, the tone is much darker than that of the bands precursor, with a breath of Zeuhl exhaled into the mix. Its not often in modern progressive rock, or any other genre for that matter, that a debut is delivered with this level of impact.







Thank you to all the participating voters.

11. Gryphon - ReInvention (29-t)
12. Daal - Navels Falling into a Living Origami (39-t)
13. Damanek - In Flight (85)
14. All Traps on Earth - A Drop of Light (1)
15. The Tangent - Proxy (6)
16. Monobody - Raytracing (22)
17. Roz Vitalis - The Hidden Man of the Heart (216-t)
18. Seven Reizh - L'Albatros (119-t)
19. Regal Worm - Pig Views (64-t)
20. Semantic Saturation - Paradigms (241-t)

Another fine prog year. Nice to see 4 albums from my list in the top 10 at 1, 3, 5 and 6. I am not surprised by the winning album, only by its wide margin. But, in my humble opinion, the runner-up on my list deserves far more attention; I cannot recall having an album so highly ranked that did not appear in other lists.

Fantastic work Ian!

And it's great to see such diversity in the top ten (...and the top fifty generally).

I was thinking the same thing, good year for those of a panhead persuasion. Hopefully someone suggest Far Corner for ProgDay.

The funny thing is the most purely panhead sounding album of the bunch is listed as neo-prog. (Rivendell - Sisyfos)
The other humorous thing is that the guy who made the panhead rant only needed to vote and would have pushed Riverside into the top 10 and maybe Tangent into the top 5. Oh well.

Yeah, well, David Bowie won the whole thing 2 years ago. As near as I can tell because Rick Wakeman appeared on an album in 1969.

Well, I got three of these.  I didn't vote this year because I didn't get a lot of 2018 albums and did a bit of 2017 catch up.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...

Who'd have thought I would suddenly have underground tastes on this site! I guess a few years away from PA really sets your tastes apart from the masses haha. It looks like a good chunk of my top albums I was the only voter for.

Absolutely spectacular work on this - you really took this and made it so much better than when I used to run it. Bravo!

Thanks Andy. When it gets right down to it, I'm driving the same bus you built. Honestly, the rules are only slightly modified ctrl+c+v from what you created. All I really did was give it a paint job. And that was inspired by what Adam over at MMA is doing with their AOTY. Plus George (historian9) stepped up and created an ap right before I took over to tally the votes.
