Traced In Air, but I would have voted Motorpsycho's album if in the list.

Opeth!!!!
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Traced in Air vs. ObZen was difficult for me, but Traced in Air is much more varied and wholly more interesting.

Traced in Air is awesome as hell.

Beardfish is my runner-up.

I'll pull one of Logan's moves here and mention a couple personal favorites which didn't make the list:  Guapo's Elixirs and Jean Louis' self-titled.

I feel Destined Solitaire is much better than SiT2, what do you think of the album?

Il baccio della medusa for me. These polls often prove the same thing over and over to me, and that is that most of the music I listen to lies outside the top lists. This one was the first of these, where I wanted to vote for one in the poll.

Honestly I feel like they lost some of the creative spark. It's a very good album, but less fun and original than SiT2. SiT2 is really imaginative and does the retro prog thing in the best way possible, keeping it fun and catchy but still complex and intricate. Destined Solitaire is like that, just less so.

Experiments in Mass Appeal by far.

I don't have an unnatural obsession with Disney Princesses, I have a five year old daughter and coping mechanisms.
