It's because too many people rate albums after one listen (if even that), when certain things actually take a bit of work to sink in and properly appreciate.  That's why more accessible albums fare better on the charts than high-profile but "complicated" works.  Or, they even rate them after hearing only a live version or something (He gets it!)

I'm really surprised by obvious hegemony of Coyote because (judging by PA reviews) it's not a favourite at all. On the other hand, Aquarius, being obvious favourite, has totally failed.

A moral: Never trust in PA reviews!Wink

Topographic Tales: I just could not get into the Haken album at all and I found the vocals annoying. Everybody was just so effusive about it so I listened to it and IMO it's nothing special. Certainly nothing to rave about.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I don't see how it's overrated at all.

Karnataka > Alcest = Frogg Café = Sky Architect > (...) >>>>>>> Kayo Dot. I don't know if it's clear enough that I hated their 2010's album.

I voted CICCADA A Child in the Mirror though I like BROTHER APE's A Rare Moment of Insight, THE TEA CLUB's Rabbit and YUGEN's Iridule a little bit better.

I went with the Pineapple Thief, a very strong album from start to finish. There were also great albums By Gazpacho, Spock's Beard, Anathema and Moon Safari. I found the Haken album the over-rated album in a long time

From the list, Gazpacho, but, in truth, David Minasian won 2010 hands down for me.
