Dark Matter or Doomsday Afternoon.  Very tough decision.  Camel had me until I saw those two. 
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

So what's the point of this poll?

Coyote, again.
The ice caps are melting
All the world is drowning
The ice caps are melting
The tide is rushing in
All the world is drowning
To wash away the sin

Porcupine tree!
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!!!

Gandalff,

I don't get this poll:  Qualifiers are supposed to be in the top three overall rated per year, minimum 100 ratings, yet four on your list from which we are to vote includes seven albums who are outside their year's Top 3!?!?!? 

"10,000 Days" (#9), 
"A Nod and A Wink" (#9), 
"Dark Matter" (#11),  
"Bridge Across Forever" (#7), 
Coyote" (#17), 
"Deadwing" (#9), and 
"Fear of a Blank Planet" (#5).

10,000 Days, Bridge Across Forever, Deadwing, and Doomsday Afternoon are all 5 star albums IMO, but I have to go with 10,000 Days.  The title track on that is one of the most powerful songs, for me, that I've ever heard.

Please don't mix ratings from PA reviewers and voting on Basic Rounds of this tournament here. Results are diametrically different.
