Thanks for your comment. I have gotten used to forum folks not reading the OP. I have done it myself.

Riverside
Haken
Wobbler
This Winter Machine
The Tangent
Moon Safari
(I'd like to include Mostly Autumn, but their debut was 1998. Same with Big Big Train, who debuted in 1994. IQ, Pendragon and Arena are all wonderful, but far too old.)
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

Steven Wilson, Neal Morse and Transatlantic shouldn't count in my view because they have all released music before or are made up entirely of musicians who have.

Frost*
Moon Safari
Beardfish
Riverside
Ciccada
The Watch

Also considered:

Haken
Lost World
Hourglass
Voyager
Thieves' Kitchen
Jordsjų
Barock Project
Tiger Moth Tales
Antique Seeking Nuns / Sanguine Hum
Kotebel
Karfagen / Sunchild

Fair point, but this criticism can't apply to those posts that were made before the OP edited his post to include a cut off date.

You are correct. My edited post explained the years I was asking for. However, even after editing... some still picked bands/artists that didn't met the criteria.

From a strictly PA, semi-empirical (eye testing without taking the time to count) perspective, using the years in question, 200 total rating and 4 star average, the answer seems to be...I don't think their really is a big 6. These are the closest that meet the criteria who started making albums after 2001.

Riverside
Wobbler
Haken
Steven Wilson

As noted above, it's hard to consider Wilson as his work with PT started way before 2001. But technically he qualifies.

If you throw out the 2001 band genesis requirement it would be something like.

Big Big Train
Riverside
Wobbler
Porcupine Tree
Opeth
Steven Wilson

From my personal perspective, I am not sure that anything that dominates my listening falls into a "big" anything category.

^The term big was not to be taken literally and your choices were to be your own, not PA's. Thanks for your effort.
