Miasma and the Carousel of Headless Horses - Manfauna
Alamaailman Vasarat - Maahan
Soft Mountain - Soft Mountain
Salle Gaveau - Alloy

Lobster Newberg - Vernal Equinox
Calle Debauche - Potemkin Carnival
Kevin Ayers - The Unfairground
Faust & Nurse with Wound - Disconnected

Only two albums which were also in my top 5, considerably low on the chart.
Not a surprise that PT won it by miles at all, but strange how others turned up.

I really thought that John Zorn's "Six Litanies for Heliogabalus" would fare better.

Was Mar de Robles' "Indigena" nominated by any chance?  I'm very sad it didn't make the top 20; for my money, nothing released in 07 came close ('cept for maybe Doomsday Afternoon.)

Regardless, it appears theres still a few albums from last year I better check out.  

Thanks for the list
Ross

How much better would you have liked Comicopera to fare (?), it's on second place! LOL

Regarding some other albums, including Lobster Newberg's, you have to recognize it was a poll of favorite albums even amongs us Reviewers and Collaborators. Wink

We need new collabs. Angry

No seriously, not a bad list at all. Glad to see PT, Wyatt, Battles, Oceansize, Sieges Even all up there, they really deserve it! Really shocked that Rush was so high, I thought that most people felt it to be a disappointment.

Nah, place 50 is excellent! TongueTongue

Too bad though Aeternus isn't a collaborator, he would have made a third good vote for it.

Really surprised Into the Night isn't higher up.

I'm surprised Comicopera is so high too. It seems a top 10 or so, but it's a bit drab and downbeat, except for parts.

I'm also surprised at the love for Sieges Even. I don't have Paramount, but they don't seem to garner much praise on the forum.

The list just shows what an amazing year 2007 was for prog. It's interesting to compare this list to the list of the top of 2007 according to Prog Archives reviews.

"The wind is slowly tearing her apart"
"Sad Rain" ANEKDOTEN

I figured DT was that high because of Micky and Ghost Rider's secret ballot votes.  Appears that Micky didn't get his vote in for them however.
 
I have only heard a small percentage of the albums that made the top 100.  It will be interesting to see how this list compares with Logan's non-collab calculation.

Surprises for me:
 
Systematic Chaos was much higher than I expected.
 
Ziltoid the Omniscient was much lower than I expected.
 
Where's Gazpacho with their Night album?  Nowhere in the top 100!?!?!?!?
