artist/band of the year - Fates Warning, they're so underrated it hurts. Also Ray Alder said Jim Matheos does not want to make more music with FW although he said he'd still play live. Ouch

I haven't heard the new album, but I really liked 'Theories of Flight'.

I still haven't listened the new Tangent or Wobbler albums yet, but from that list so far, Magenta's was the best. However, I could probably come up with 30 bands and artists that had better albums than those on that list. The list is also very Anglo-American-centric.

I don't know about you but 2020 for me is far from being one of my favorite years, in terms of prog releases.
I appreciate a bunch of really strong albums but I haven't heard anything striking so far.

I agree, compared to last year, 2020 is not great.

From PR's album of the year list (have not heard them all), I would choose Haken, followed by Wobbler. But the releases by Pat Metheny and French TV are my faves this year, so far.

^ I agree, last year was great. This year I have a top 5 that I love, but outside of that I have a few "likes" and a whole lot of "eh's"

My Top 3 are Wobbler, Flower Kings and King Gizzard. Haven't figured out the order yet, but i'll get there.

After that it's Motorpsycho and Haken, both awesome albums.

That one is creeping up on me slowly. I love that fact that Rikard is a pure baritone in the best tradition of Greg Lake and John Wetton. Seems to be a dying thing in prog. Fantastic musician as well.

I would vote for Wobbler if I could be bothered. My other favourites are also on there (Magenta, Glass Hammer , The Flower Kings) apart from IO Earth and Isobar. It's a very safe bunch of choices apart from Haken who have split opinion with their latest release ( I'm not a fan of it although I like their stuff generally).

edit - and just realised that Deep Purple is not an option. fantastic album imo, highlighted by Don Airey's brilliant keyboard work. That will be high up on my list at the end of the year.
