Crimson released a great one that year which gets my vote. Although it is not even in the same league I actually like Train of Thought a lot.

TMV. It's the only album of theirs that I'd consider a masterpiece. I have no reservation giving it credit where credit is plainly due.

But on reflection, I'll go with .... damn I still can't decide. Abstain for now.

5 Suns was 2004 or it would have my vote
Oops.  Thanks for the correction.  It said 2003 in my iTunes library but you're right.
It also turns out that the OOIOO album wasn't released in the US until 2004 either.  It was released in Japan in 2003 though.  I'll still count it as an option.

But I'm going to vote for Kayo Dot anyway.

Nothing against the choices offered, but this poll really misses the mark for me. Best of '03:

Mew: Frengers
The Tangent: The Music That Died Alone
Opeth: Damnation
Anekdoten: Gravity
Radiohead: Hail to the Thief
Anathema: A Natural Disaster
Explosions in the Sky: The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place

...not necessarily in that order, but I'll stick with Mew at #1.

Seeing as I don't see the point in voting "other", I picked Choirs Of The Eye, my 6th favourite from the year. I've actually done a massive focus on 2003 in listening (over 400 albums heard), these are my top 10:

1. AFI - Sing The Sorrow
2. Muse - Absolution
3. Matthew Good - Avalanche
4. Anathema - A Natural Disaster
5. Green Carnation - A Blessing In Disguise
6. Kayo Dot - Choirs Of The Eye
7. Oceansize - Effloresce
8. Opeth - Damnation
9. Gary Hughes - Once And Future King Part 1
10. Arena - Contagion

Not all are prog, but (this may shock you) prog isn't the only good music on the planet.

Must go with Kayo Dot. Arguably the best album of Toby Drivers career so far?

White Willow's debut Ignis Fatuus is from 95 and they didn't have an album out in 03, with Sacrament from 2000 and Storm Season from 04.
