Dark Matter or Doomsday Afternoon.  Very tough decision.  Camel had me until I saw those two.

Gandalff,

I don't get this poll:  Qualifiers are supposed to be in the top three overall rated per year, minimum 100 ratings, yet four on your list from which we are to vote includes seven albums who are outside their year's Top 3!?!?!? 

"10,000 Days" (#9), 
"A Nod and A Wink" (#9), 
"Dark Matter" (#11),  
"Bridge Across Forever" (#7), 
Coyote" (#17), 
"Deadwing" (#9), and 
"Fear of a Blank Planet" (#5).

10,000 Days, Bridge Across Forever, Deadwing, and Doomsday Afternoon are all 5 star albums IMO, but I have to go with 10,000 Days.  The title track on that is one of the most powerful songs, for me, that I've ever heard.

Please don't mix ratings from PA reviewers and voting on Basic Rounds of this tournament here. Results are diametrically different.

As much as I love A Nod and a Wink, Dark Matter is simply exceptional and gets my vote.
 
Doomsday Afternoon, Bridge Across Forever, Fear of a Blank Planet and Deadwing also deserve honourable mentions; the rest are not to my taste at all.

very difficult as there's too many good stuff in the list. The last Camel and my fav albums of IQ, Transatlantic and Phideaux plus Deadwing that's the album that I've listened to coming to work this morning and the one that made me discover Kayo Dot...

I need time to decide.

I actually considered going with Bantam to Behemoth over Coyote from memory since I had liked Kyo Dot's Blue Lambency Downward more, but listened to Coyote again and was struck again by its brilliance and put off by a certian kind of bombastic, less than subtle qualities of B2B.  Easy choice.
