    Posted: November 22 2022 at 14:03
I decided to through Prog Archives top ten charts looking at each Prog sub-genre (category) to see how many categories have three of more albums by the same band in the top 10 of its sub-genre's chart, and I made a list that came to 24 bands with over 80 albums in total that fit the criteria. This is part one.   

I have included the ranking (the number to the left of the band-name and album) for the genre charts in the list below. Note: Since I have taken this off the charts and this site does not tag individual albums, we will find an album like Kind of Blue, or specifically Kind of Blue in the master-list, which is not JRF but still fits per my methodology. I just ask that people vote for a favourite album no matter how well they think it represents the category.

Here is the master-list:

Unsurprisingly, I will also chuck a vote to TPatG. Apparently released in the second century, the year 174.

I had noticed that. It's correct in the master-list, but I was too lazy to fix it in the poll when I noticed. I often make such mistakes in these kinds of topics. Will correct it now.

Liked reading the top ten. sorry snipping. I'm much the same when it comes to selecting top album out of various ones I like, although Pawn Hearts is the most important of these to me.

-----------------------------------------

I was interested in how well-represented certain bands are in the top ten of each category, as well as to see how the rankings of a band's albums (and the sub-genre rankings) would compare to the votes.
