I'll go with fusion today, followed by (in no particular order) Heavy, Eclectic, RPI and Folk.

Beyond the Shrouded Horizon was a really excellent album.
A hand held over a candle in angst fuelled bravado. A carbon trail scores a moist stretched palm. Trapped in the indecision of another fine menu. This is the story so far.

Nice! I'm sure that will be a memorable concert. I'm not a big fan of his Genesis Revisited albums, but I'm sure the music will sound great live. I'm quite anxious to hear a new Hackett album, especially after loving Beyond the Shrouded Horizon. Keeping my fingers crossed that the material is good and not one of those half and half Hackett albums.

Love your avatar BTW. Spectral Mornings is one of my favorite Hackett albums, but I really love his first four albums anyway.

Well, from the knockout poll the eclectic prog sub-genre won.... the least loathed. Not my term but one I read that struck my chord... Yet Symphonic sub genre wins the favourite. I just wondered why....

More people wanted to see symphonic gone than eclectic win is the short answer. It doesn't mean those who voted against symph all had the same favorite. The symph loyalists are the larger group, but when all the smaller groups who prefer eclectic combined, they made a much bigger group that eclipsed the people who calim symph as their favorite.

So theoretically, eclectic prog should win this round. "Least loathed" equals most popular as per the vote against polls.

King Crimson isn't Symphonic Prog. They're Eclectic Prog.

My apologies. I guess I was thinking of their first two albums, but, yes, they changed directions rather quickly.

In the Court, In the Wake and (maybe) Lizard are kind of symph prog, but other than that, KC isn't symphonic prog.

I choose post/math today. Some other day the answer could be exp/post, kraut, eclectic, or maybe avant/RIO
