Frank Zappa's ship arrived too late. I had to drop him from the bottom of the poll to make way for National Health. Smile

It's a good thing I kept that album in the poll. I almost dropped Captain Beefheart in place of Frank Zappa. Smile

Tangerine Dream. I like both albums very much.

I could have voted for Supertramp as well. It was the only record I liked in my father's collection, so I played it a lot.

Voted for Ice Cream For Crow, though I had a senior moment and thought I was voting for 'Doc at the Radar station'.  Wouldn't have mattered, actually. 

I'm one of an apparently small number who like 'Enter K' a lot. 'Unconscious Life' and 'Accidents' especially. Side two let it down a bit. I'd still go for Ice Cream.

Unwittingly voted IQ, thought it was TFTLA, 1983. Now literally kicking myself for voting for an album I have never even heard.

Third poll in the series, third strong Eloy album I can't vote for, because Kate Bush has that album in this one that hit me like no other; another top 5 of all time album.

"Bang!" goes another kanga
On the bonnet of the van
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

Pity also that I can't give Beat its well deserved vote, as it seems hardly anybody else likes it as much as I do, so it'll end up with zero votes I guess. I feel like a traitor. After these three the list of those I enjoy greatly is completed by Five Miles Out, the pair of Tangerine Dream,  Lone Rhino, and Broadsword and the Beast,

Good choice, but Allan Holdsworth I.O.U. is missing.

No choice now but Health.

Paul,

Thanks for adding Allan Holdsworth to the poll but I used my vote on National Health. Maybe someone will choose I.O.U.

Maybe for 1983 Road Games, and 1985 Metal Fatigue could be included in your poll?

That's okay. I almost forgot to mention that I replaced Peter Hammill with Alan Holdsworth, until you just reminded me. Smile

Alan Holdworth's Road Games is coming right up in the 1983 poll, just as soon as I've finished putting the 25 artists into alphabetical order. Smile

Always been a fan of Roxy -Avalon though it's not that proggy and indeed many of their later albums really aren't prog to me.
Also like Beefheart, Bush, Gabriel, Nat Health....

I wouldn't describe Roxy Music as being remotely proggy either, although rather surprisingly, they're included in ProgArchives under Crossover Prog. Not that I'm complaining - the more artists the merrier in my opinion. Smile

Had no chance of winning but at least in someone's head ^ now.

Oops! I just realised I left Jon Anderson's "Animation" album out of the poll, although he's included now, in place of Adrian Belew. Smile

I'm glad I remembered to include Roxy Music's Avalon album, seeing as it's already picked up three votes. Smile

What a bad year...the worst Camel album together with one of the worst Caravan. I save TD but my vote goes to Roxy Music. Avalon is their only album that I really like.

Toto IV.
I don't care if it is or isn't prog - it's a brilliant album.

Asia, IQ, Eloy, Roxy Music and Mike Oldfield all deserve honorable mentions.

KATE BUSH!
Her best, most experimental album.  It sounds like fingernails on chalkboard to most of my friends, but I love it.  Hounds of Love is great as well, but more refined for the masses.
I wanted to give a shout out to Jon's Animation album.  It is my favorite album of his, and I've never understood why it is not more highly regarded.
KC, PG, and Roxy all had good entries this year as well.
Toto?  How did that get in there?

Surprisingly, The Dreaming is my least favourite Kate Bush album, although it's not as bad as fingernails on chalkboard. Smile
 
Toto IV was on Google's list of top prog albums from 1982, although it was clearly a mistake to include the album in this poll. Tongue

Voting for Kate Bush, but where is Offramp by Pat Metheny Group?????? EASILY the best 1982 prog album imo.

Eloy - Time To Turn 
I play that endlessly and will often include it in my top ten or twenty favourite albums. They nailed the whole sci-fi drenched in synths thing and the band were just incredible at this time. The drums and bass are off the scale brilliant for me.

You're not the only one here. It is my favourite album of 1982 (with Signals as second).

Rush of course. APP's Eye in the Sky would be my second place

I accidentally voted for something else, but my choice really is FIVE MILES OUT from Mike Oldfield. Taurus II simply rules, some ppl find it meandering and unfocused, I find it fantastic and joyful!!!

Shout out to Jethro Tull and likely the most solid offering of the 1980s from 'em: The Broadsword and the Beast. From what I've seen, the concert tour was MINDBOGGLING, with Ian's voice still at 90% of his capabilities, very tight band around him and incredibly vivid playing.

It's good to see Toto holding the line against some of the prog giants in the poll. Toto's Falling in Between concert in Paris is one of the best Live performances I've ever seen, and with the added bonus of featuring Greg Phillinganes on keyboards. Thumbs Up
 
 
The bass player with the long beard reminds me of Zebedee from The Magic Roundabout. Smile

Tough.
Toto IV is excellent, as is Avalon. I really like Time to Turn too.
But my vote goes to Five Miles Out. For me, the world music phase of Oldfield's discography as on QE2 and Five Miles Out was better than his initial trio of albums.
