I swear like 60% of the current Neo Prog list on PA is actually Alternative Prog/AtmoProg (I call it "Kscope Prog")

My thoughts exactly. A few contemporary bands from the mid 00s onward maybe sound enough like those foundational 80s-mid 90s neo bands to qualify, but on the whole, a lot of them belong in symph or, more likely, crossover, on this site.
yep! And as much as I vibe with the "Kscope Prog" atmosphere and mood, many of these artists are barely Prog-Related honestly

some examples of bands would help prove your point a bit better.

Not a "Kscope" example, but Frost* is the kind of group that does not evoke the 80s- mid 90s style of Neo.

True, I've always thought they fit better under crossover.

^And I SWEAR they were when I first came to this site around 5 years ago or so (before getting on the forums), but they must have been moved.

I think they always were under neo, I could be wrong though. Confused If they were moved from crossover to neo, it was wrong IMO. Smile

Yep Frost* belong under 'Neo' as much as Porcupine Tree do (but it would be hilarious to put the latter there just to annoy S Wilson lol). Jem even did a video where he went out of his way to explain that they were deliberately avoiding all the Neo type prog stuff (he had listened to a ton of it and wasn't impressed apparently).

Eh I still think Frost* are neo prog. They got the vibes, y'know

As for me, I feel like Big Big Train should be in symphonic prog, same with Styx. Also Mr. Bungle should be in prog related, they aren't really prog, just very avant garde funk metal, like Primus
