Haven't heard all of them, but it's hard to imagine anything better than Magma's album.  The Hazards of Love comes close -- I cited it as my favorite album of '09, and it comes pretty darn close to being a perfect rock opera - all the most amazing since I don't really care much for any of the band's other albums (I have a few).  But Magma it is. 

Magma wins, Hazards and Part the Second get Honorable Mention.  The Incident is a fine album too, but it's only "okay" by Porcupine Tree's high standards.

It's ironic that in arguably the best prog year of the last 30 years, 2 of the most popular bands on this list (where is Dream Theater??) released one of their least best albums. (TMV and PT)

I'm sorry but i can't agree with 2009 being the best year of prog in 30 years.
