Think it's pretty obvious what I chose here....yup.....SAVIOUR MACHINE!!!!
Saviour 1 is unreal. Thee best gothic prog metal album I've ever heard.

Of course. IQ's EVER is a masterpiece and it would definately be 2nd for me, but nothing tops the MACHINE!!


I kneel to the alter of ARCAM.

Since they have no votes I guess a lot of people just don't know them.
So if you don't mind John...


 
Thanks for the video Sagi, it gives those who don't know them a peek.

Lots of great comments, thanks guys. A three horse race as IQ has come from quite a ways back.

Kingston Wall II, one of my absolute favorites of the Psychedelic/Space Rock sub-genre.

Counterparts - Easily Rush's best from the 90's, in my humble opinion.

IQ's "Ever" got my vote.  The only other album that came close was Anekdoten's "Vemod."  Now, if Anekdoten had released "Nucleus" in '93 then it would've been a different story Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

I have to stick with the Canadian trio on this one.  I can remember making a midnight trip to the store to buy this one on the day that it came out.  It is certainly the album that I have listened to the most out of the ones listed.  Anekdoten's Vemod would probably be 2nd on my list, followed by IQ's Ever.

I'd have to go with I.Q.'s Ever on this one.

Ever by miles.
 
Jurassic Shift is very good but doesn't compare to it.
