Well, this is an anti-climax.

I voted for Riverside since I love them and cant stand PT, but it wont make any difference.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

This is actually only the 2nd time that I have voted for PT in the tournament, not that they need my vote.  I voted for Riverside in every round except the one against Dream Theater.  They just had "weaker" competition from my point of view to get to the finals.  I like both bands well enough but neither band is one of my post-70's favorites.

I like PT but they really aren't that special.
 
Riverside are special; a great band who deserve my vote.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

As a fan of Porcupine Tree,Riverside and Opeth It matters not who wins. At least it wasn't Marillion!
Porcupine Tree reinstated my love of prog rock several years ago when a mate lent me In Absentia.
Thank you.

Quite a surprising result. I still would prefer PT- DT, though Tongue

PT for me.

Riverside, musically just more interesting and captivating for me than PT.

edit: pointless I know but prefer Opeth to Riverside.

And Symphony X to all of em Big smile

Porcupine Tree Their whole catalogue beats Riverside's, but give Riverside time they're very good.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I like Riverside more. Never seen anything in PT that makes them stand out as much as they do, even though they're good.
