Of the ones in the poll i'd say Spock's Beard but to me it wasn't that impressive of a year for album cover (ducks). Some nice ones though no doubt. 
I did like Rush's cover with the clock set on 2112.  iamthemorning does it for me for some reason and also Suspyre's cover.

Spock's Beard is really the only one out of that selection I really really like. (

The Raven has always caught my eye for some reason. 
I consider drone metal to be progressive...

I'm not real wild about most of these, but the Spock's Beard is really cool.  After that, I would go with Pineapple Thief and then Flower Kings.  The rest are meh.

I adore All The Wars' cover, mainly because I love colourful things. They've got a new EP coming out soon which has an equally colourful cover.

I like keeping lists, so I've been compiling one of artwork so far in 2013:

Steve Wilson's Raven has a wonderful simplistic awesomeness there that I enjoy. There are some great ones on this list.
