I'd go with Natural Selection, but seeing as I only know that and the Tea Party album, I won't vote.

Haven't heard of any of these, okay Tea Party I know, but that's only from being Canadian. Smile I actually saw them live at a free festival a couple of summers ago. They were great, awesome energy.

Listening to Saviour Machine's first one right now. Love this stuff.

They're great. I originally found them because their singer Eric Clayton is on Ayreon's The Human Equation.  Legend Pt 1 is their best IMO.

My fave from these is probably Edges of Twilight, but it has received lots of love already.  It rates 5 stars for me with no trouble.

I voted for  In a Safe Place by  The Album Leaf.

This one of my fave mellow out albums. 
Prog On!

happy to hear my fellow proggers. The album, Saviour Machine 1 is a real gem, but wait till you get into the Legend trilogy!! It will knock you on your ass. It's awesome. Saviour Machine offer up some of the highest quality of prog metal there is. In my opinion, I feel their are not too many bands out there better than them. And yes, E.C's appearance on the AYREON' project 'Human Equation' helped spark some Interest in Saviour Machine for sure. After all, E.C was the voice of reason on the album. What's not to like!?
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

Voted for this one:

Pretty original Krautrock album that veered into jazz and electronic in a most ingenious way.
Loooooove the froggy synths of this track in particular Acide Framboise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obQp7Zrpk4Y

I haven't bought their dvd yet, but I've watched a some of it on youtube. It's even more theatrically impressive than I expected.

Oooohhh live in DEUTCHLAND 2002. THE BEAST! God. They are so intense, but so awesome. I can't look away. Oh you gotta get their live album in 1995 in DEUTCHLAND as well. That's another thing, they are an incredible live band. I have so much respect for them. Also, don't you love Nathan Val Halla keys! Love how he rocks the prophet 5 synth!!

Vampillia doesn't get near enough recognition.  Powerful, epic, dissonant, post-rock.
